John Williams - How To Create A Business You Won't Get Bored Of

This is a special episode of The Ideas Lab Podcast. I want to talk about what it's like to be somebody with lots of ideas and lots of interests.

A particular personality type that is sometimes referred to as a Scanner, a Renaissance Man or Woman and also a Polymath

Lots of Entrepreneurs are of this type but it does bring its issues.

How to know if you are a Scanner:
  • Do you have varied interests that don't often group together very neatly?
  • Do you have more ideas than you can possibly execute in one lifetime?
  • Do you find that you love learning the gist of something. You get just into a topic and then as soon as you've got a feel for it you move on to something completely different?
  • Do you find the idea of a one-track conventional career absolutely horrifying? (Because it will bore you to death!)
  • Do you find that you are better at starting things and not so great at finishing things?

If you answered to yes to any of the above, and you want to or already do run your own business, then this episode is for you.

There is also a special training coming up specifically for people like you (Scanners, that is!) . Please use the link below to join me live.
