Men have been innately raised from childhood to be self-reliant. Do it yourself. Man up. Don't ask for help. Yet, one of the biggest downfalls of men is that we often are too self-reliant and we don't let others in and end up becoming isolated. My friend, and a man I consider a mentor, John Jantsch recently published book #6 - The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur - a why to book not a how to book.
This book is chock full of daily doses of meditations, inspirations, and challenge questions to get you to go deeper, even if you are not an entrepreneur. It is especially relevant to you guys that are over 40 and launching out into this adventure - becoming an entrepreneur - late in life. Consider his book and this interview a means for you to realize that trust is the greatest gift of self-reliance.
