[10:30] – Ken’s question: What have you seen from talking to 2000+ entrepreneurs that has been the biggest barrier to people taking that leap?
[10:41] – They don’t trust that they can do something that’s going to bring in dollars and cents. They know that they can do something they’re going to enjoy cause they have different passions, but they just can’t see the path to revenue.

[17:10] – Sponsor: Billy’s question – 95% of businesses fail within the first 5 years. What is that one thing 95 out of 100 people are not understanding?
- They don’t keep generating revenue. They don’t keep bringing in customers. They can’t keep the lights on.
- Working on referrals is not the only way to monetize.
- People don’t like to advertise because they don’t know how to get ROI from their ads.
- Billy Gene will teach you on how to turn those clicks into customers for FREE. Watch his free video training at WatchBillysVideo.com.

[18:11] – Recently she has partnered up with her friend Claire because both of them love cooking and they want to bring health to other people.
[19:27] – You need to be thinking: what would your perfect viewer want? It takes all the weight off of your shoulders and puts it on your avatar’s shoulders – let them guide you in that direction.
[21:03] – The struggle is trying to find someone who is really interested in getting healthy, but who doesn’t have the community around them to help them
