TBL Episode 44: Working Without a Script
Jeremy Slate has run a gamut of diverse jobs on his journey to becoming an entrepreneur. He started out teaching high school, sold life insurance, worked as a personal trainer and even sold products on Amazon before landing a role with a marketing firm. At that point, everything just came together, and Jeremy has been able to find his niche and entrepreneurial success.
Learning About Entrepreneurship
In 2013, Jeremy’s wife introduced him to a network marketing opportunity. That didn’t work out, but he was exposed to the concept of entrepreneurship. This set Jeremy on a path that eventually led to partnering with a friend at a marketing firm.
While working as the CMO at a marketing firm, Jeremy hit his stride. It didn’t take long before Jeremy jumped into podcasting. These days, through his business, Command Your Brand, Jeremy helps fellow entrepreneurs tell their story through podcasting. He has merged a storytelling process with an email sequence and opt-ins to help clients expand the reach of their brands.
Embracing the Role of Entrepreneur
Jeremy reminisces about his journey and the progression from employee to entrepreneur. “We don’t like (the job) we have now, so we create something better, and as entrepreneurs, we’re like the ultimate artists. We can build things, and I think that’s where it comes from – that creativity,” explains Jeremy.
Through his business, Jeremy is able to help clients reach their goals. By starting with the end in mind, he can help clients get where they want to go. By being real and authentic and building relationships with clients, entrepreneurs can provide value and an emotional connection. As Jeremy put it, “An entrepreneur is looking to enable others to help them build something.”
