If you doubted your fears instead of doubting your dreams, imagine how much in life you’d accomplish.” – Joel Brown

Early Challenge

Joel was working in the music industry in Miami, FL and found it was really about the politics and money. He felt restricted and wanted to take control of his life, so he moved Perth, Australia and got a new job in sales.

Ah-Hah Moment

Joel’s sales company hired Jordan Belfort to give a workshop to the sales team in Australia.

Jordan asked, “Joel do you have a goal?”

Joel said, “no”.

Jordan responded, “great neither do I, goals are good for short term achievements but rather you need to cast a vision”.

This changed everything for Joel which led to the creation of addicted2success.

If you’re in an environment that is not serving you then your challenge is to leave that environment today. This can be a relationship, employer or anything that is not helping you get to where you really want to be in life. I know this is a big challenge but I know there is someone reading this who will do it.

Make that leap. Joel did it, I did it and we created something we’re both very proud of and I know you can too.

    I have heard of Joel Brown before, must have seen his name on his site or a guest post elsewhere. I love how he sounds so casual when he talks but has lots of great advice to share. Great interview Andrew and Joel. Keep the great interviews comin.
