(First ~2 mins)
Hey, this is Frank Agin, president of AmSpirit Business Connections, and the host of the Networking Rx podcast, If you really want to learn the science to creating six and seven figure businesses, significantly increase your revenue, and learn how to successfully build a professional organization and relationships, you should be listening to Sell Without Selling podcast with my good friend, Stacey O’Byrne.
Stacey: Frank, welcome to the show.
Frank: Well thanks for having me, gold nuggets. It might be fools gold, maybe silver, I don’t know.
Stacey: I am excited to have you on the show. So we were talking earlier, and as a matter of fact, we were talking a couple days ago. I’m really excited for our listeners to get a glimpse of what success means to you.
Frank: You know what, for me success is being able to do what you want to do, really on your own terms. You know, success is not money, right? School teachers don’t make a lot of money, but for the most part they’re doing what they love to do. And I get it, there are certainly problems with school teachers. It’s just one example. But for me, I have a law degree, I have an MBA, I have a CPA. I have more letters after my name than in my name, and I had a very prestigious job with a very big accounting firm doing tax consulting. It was a great place and great people, but I wasn’t happy. It wasn’t my passion. It wasn’t for me. I’m a people person. And if Sunday nights are miserable, you need to do something else.
Stacey: I love that. I’m curious, what got you to pursue a path of accounting and law?
