In this episode:
There's a lot of noise and confusion generated by all the speakers, authors, coaches, info-marketers and other assorted gurus who are screaming at you about how simple and easy it is to become phenomenally successful in business with little or no effort on your part -- IF you'll just buy their book or course or coaching program. But you'll occasionally find people who are willing to tell you the truth about business and entrepreneurship. I am one of those people.

I am often asked where the “contrarian entrepreneur” concept came from. In episode 002, I explained what I believe an entrepreneur is, and I made a distinction between that and what a “contrarian” entrepreneur is.
I made the simple point that a contrarian entrepreneur is everything that an entrepreneur is, only more so.
In other words, whatever characteristics you could identify in any entrepreneur exist within a contrarian entrepreneur, but to a greater degree.
I quoted Steve Jobs, who talked about the “crazy ones” who have “no respect for the status quo”; the rebels and misfits, the “round pegs in the square holes” who see things differently, who don’t like rules. He said that they are the ones who change things.
So in case you missed episode 002, I am herein revisiting the characteristics of the “contrarian” entrepreneur.
