Why Community Is the New Currency w/Les Brown Jr.

We’re often inundated with images of wealth on social media that show what people’s lives look like once they’ve achieved their goals. What about the journey they took to achieve that lifestyle? What was the driving force to success?

On this episode, I talk with Les Brown Jr., and Levan Wood to hear where they came from and what processes & strategies led to their success.

If you don’t take that leap, you’ll never be able to chase your dreams. -Chris Naugle.

Three Things We Learned

Build communities, not customers

Your network always equals your net worth. Being selfless and doing good for the benefit of your community shows you to be genuine. As a result, you’ll be able to keep doing business over time, because you’re not just an entrepreneur, but a pillar of the community.

Believe in yourself. You are your own biggest obstacle

You are the master of your own destiny, so be mindful of what you think you can (or can’t) achieve. You are deserving of your success. Believe it, and believe that you are bringing value into your community.

Stay in tune with your motivation

There will always be people telling you to quit. The way to block out that noise is by reminding yourself why you want to achieve your dreams. Be willing to put in the hard work, and don’t give up too easily. Success doesn’t begin when you have a mansion. It starts during your struggle.

As a society, we’ve become consumed by the desire to generate wealth for personal gain. However, there is so much good to be done with money. If you’re on your path to create generational wealth, remember that it begins and ends with your community. Ultimately, your network is your net worth.
