What makes you get up every day and do your best work? It’s motivation that drives you to do what you do each day. It keeps you pushing through the obstacles that get in your way. However, not everyone can determine what drives them. Some are still searching for their deeper reasons, while others have lost them over time. If you don’t know what drives you, you may find yourself unable to do your best work, stagnating, and afraid to take risks.
Sam Coates slowly lost his drive over time, but he eventually found his answers through the stories of other people. In this episode of Seek Go Create, Sam joins Tim to dive into what you can learn from the untold stories of people. They talk also about why telling your story can help you find the right people for your business. Learn from Sam’s ups and downs and how he pursued what he’s driven to do, no matter the risks.
Tune in to hear Sam’s journey and be inspired by his passion for sharing the lives of driven trailblazers!
