With over 7.4 billion people in the world, it’s easy to feel a little irrelevant or insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But I’m here to remind you of your indisputable importance in this ever-changing universe of ours. Your entrepreneurial dreams matter, and the world needs to hear from you.
This is something that my best buddy, Pat Flynn, discussed in his thunderous closing keynote speech at last year’s Youpreneur Summit. That’s right, I’ve snatched his fantastic speech from the keynote archives to treat your ears to his potentially life-changing words.
Pat’s keynote speech earned him a standing ovation. And I’m convinced that by the time you’ve finished listening to this podcast, you’ll be tempted to stand up and applaud him from your living room sofa, on the commute to work, or wherever you happen to be listening to this podcast!
