How to Pursue Your Passion w/ Lewis Howes

This week on BARBELL BUSINESS, we interview Lewis Howes, former pro football player turned speaker, author and lifestyle entrepreneur. Listen to this podcast to learn:

  • How Lewis built a seven-figure business from nothing in just a few years
  • How he transitioned from what he was good at to pursue his passion
  • How you can “get-in” with industry influencers
  • How you can build a team to help you on your mission to pursue your passion

After Lewis Howes’ professional arena football career ended abruptly due to an injury, he spent a few years on his sister’s couch trying to figure out how he could continue to make money while living the pro athlete lifestyle he had become so accustomed to.

He took a chance on becoming an expert on LinkedIn and spent 6 hours a day learning as much as he could about the platform,reaching out to influencers, and helping his connections optimize their profiles for a few hundred bucks. In true entrepreneurial style, he was soon ready to move on to bigger things.

Lewis self published his first book which covered all of his expertise on LinkedIn. He hosted LinkedIn networking events, sold his books at the events, got commission from the venue’s bars – he was making a good income and a name for himself, but his hustle could only go on for so much longer.

In this interview with Lewis, you’ll learn how he transitioned from the constant hustle to becoming a lifestyle entrepreneur with a team that he can rely on. In his journey he discovered the best way to infiltrate influencers and that the secret to success is hustling to help.

Keep an eye out for his new book “The School of Greatness” which will be released on Oct 28th. You can pre-order it here or on his website at LewisHowes.com.

Enjoy the show,
