E-Myth President, Wendy Vinson interviews Brian Schwartz, entrepreneur and author of the new book: 50 Interviews: Entrepreneurs.

The book, a first in a series that taps the wisdom of lessons learned from those who have successfully gone before, features an interview with EMyth founder Michael Gerber.

The evolution of an entrepreneur

After years of working for other people, Brian, like many entrepreneurs before him, decided that enough was enough. He wanted to be in control of his own income; he wanted to leave the world of sales behind. But before he could follow his entrepreneurial dreams, Brian's wife challenged him to do his research first: interview 50 entrepreneurs, she suggested, then you can make an informed decision. So he did. And he realized that not only did he have a knack for interviewing and writing, he really felt passionate about it. That's how the book 50 Interviews: Entrepreneurs came to be.

Work fulfillment had always eluded me, but during the interview process what I discovered was that these entrepreneurs had found fulfillment. I was inspired by that.

Two key elements that will help you fuel your entrepreneurial dreams

  1. Have a consuming passion - The common thread among these entrepreneurs is an all-consuming passion... one might even call it an addiction. It's the kind of passion that if you stopped getting paid tomorrow, you'd continue doing what you're' doing.
  2. Have an impersonal goal - To be truly successful, the goal mustn't be about you, or about how much you'll gain. it's about something much bigger. It's about the impact you'll have on other people and on the world around you. When you're doing something that's bigger than yourself, it's an amazing motivator.
