A question for you  – who do you trust with your work? Whatever project you may be working on, it can’t be down just to you to bring it out into the world. You have to find the right champions; people who will play their necessary parts in creating, refining and sharing whatever it is that you’re building. As an author myself, it took me a while to find the right partners for my books. Eventually, I found the people I trust, and who understand what I’m trying to achieve. These are people who have my back. So, who has yours?

JeVon McCormick is the CEO of Scribe Media, and board member at Conscious Capitalism, Inc. He also works with The StartEdUp Foundation, where students pitch their entrepreneurial ideas for a chance at $25,000 and the opportunity to collaborate with the best-in-class people who can help them turn those ideas into a business.

JeVon reads two pages from ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill. [reading begins at 21:19]

Hear us discuss:

  • “You can learn through negatives.” [5:50]
  • Reclaiming the power of your name: “Whatever we’re not changing, we’re choosing.” [9:14]
  • Finding peace with money. [31:17]
  • How fear taints leadership and corporate culture. [33:03]
  • “In most cases, when people use the word ‘fear,’ they are fearing something that may not even happen.” [36:53]
  • Balancing the need for individual action, and the need for community support. [43:32]
