Stop Treating Your Business Like Another Job and Start Treating It Like An Adventure [Dr. Travis Fox]

by | Dec 1, 2021 | Podcast

Working yourself into the ground and diving deep in the “hustle culture” isn’t what will make you successful. In fact, this can be the very thing that takes you from owning your own business to building your own 9-5 job. Today we are talking with Dr. Travis Fox about this very topic and how important it is to have fun, and in turn, growing your business into an adventure.

Show Notes

When you get caught up in trying to keep up with the constant pressure to perform, persist, and “hustle,” what was once exciting about starting your own business, quickly turns to frustration.

You likely left your 9-5 job (or are hoping to leave your 9-5 job) because you want to have more control over your time. If you start working 15+ hours per week in your own business, what did you actually accopmlish?

You’ve just essentially built your own 9-5 job!

In today’s episode we are talking with Dr. Travis Fox. From acting, directing, coaching golf professionally, and spending several years on the speaking circuit as a motivational speaker, Dr. Fox has seemingly done it all – and that’s just the tip of it!

The latest adventure that Dr. Fox has embarked on is the creation of his new app, The Ultimate Business Quest. The app is designed to get you thinking differently and engage you to shift your mindset from that hustle culture everyone’s always talking about, to one that puts you in the driver seat of your own adventure through business and life.


3 Main Takeaways from The Episode:

By the end of this episode, you should have learned:

  1. Why your business will suck if you don’t find a way to make it fun.
  2. What is Purposeful Collision and how can it help build the future you WANT for your business.
