Self made billionaire, Sam Wyly is the epitome of a successful entrepreneur. In his recent book, $1,000 and an Idea, Sam offers pearls of wisdom for entrepreneurial success.
Wyly notes, “Without passion you will not find much personal fulfillment and are unlikely to do outstanding work…the motivation for success and passion for the work are tightly linked.”
The book provides lessons that are extremely useful and not solely for entrepreneurs, but for anyone who has a dream, or a desire to create new directions in their life.
“Too often, people seem willing to let other people or outside institutions place an identity on them. They don’t, or won’t simply stand up for themselves. Without passion they will not find much personal fulfillment.”
Sam suggests that problems create solutions…”I see problems and solutions as nothing more than opposite sides of the same coin… Work and Joy are not mutually exclusive.”
