In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk with Paul Kirch from BOSS Academy Radio — Business-Ownership-Success-Strategies.
Paul’s expertise is in sales, sales strategy, entrepreneurial motivation, business success stories and coaching. He started out working for other people but always knew he wanted something more. So after 21 years he took a leap of faith in 2009 and started his own company. He now helps other entrepreneurs come up with effectively usable concepts that allow them to sell more effectively without being sellsy.
It’s hard to leave the comfort of working for a company when you’re bringing in a steady paycheck. Paul says don’t leave it until you are sure!
Once you have taken that leap then what?
- Start by systemizing your business as much as you can.
- Build a model which has the opportunity to grow into something in which you have resources so you’re able to spread yourself out a little more.
So take that leap but always be thinking in terms of, How do I get myself removed as the only person in this company.

Paul: Find clarity on what you want to accomplish everyday. Come up with one to three things that you have to do to make that day a success and whiteboard out WHY you need it done, WHAT it is, WHEN it needs to happen, and WHAT is the impact. It’s not about doing but about accomplishing.
