I've been an entrepreneur and successful online marketer for over 16 years. But make no mistake, I've busted my ass to get here.
So, how does a graduate of the foster care system, with nothing but a GED, go on to create a multi-million dollar business – and become a highly respected marketing consultant and speaker?
The truth is, I didn't have a choice.
My first son suffered a massive stroke as a baby that left him severely multiply handicapped. He passed away in 2012 at the age of 15.
It would have been easy to be defeated. But, I chose to find the lessons and not the excuses in those situations and became a successful entrepreneur. I'm a firm believer that your situation does not determine your result – your attitude does.
Take no prisoners and make no excuses – in business or life.
“Rae (Hoffman) Dolan is legend in the online world.” ~ Jonathan Fields, award-winning author, media producer and entrepreneur.
Jonathan Fields of Good Life Project recently interviewed me in a special two-part episode. We discuss where I came from, how I became an entrepreneur, what I've learned along the way and why I believe anyone can achieve whatever they set out to achieve.
