EP 106: Why You Need to Escape the Daily Grind Before You Regret Being an Entrepreneur w/ Trevor Mauch
There has been a lot of social media presence around grinding it out. Working 4 am to 8 pm. Glorifying the badge of honor or dishonor that I like to call the "Grind."
The grind is a mindset, not an activity that you should willingly try to sustain and promote.
If you're an entrepreneur and you're grinding all of the time, you're going to eventually break. Just like a cogwheel. If a cogwheel is constantly being overworked and under pressure, it's going to fail.
Instead, shift that thought to building a business based on hard work, people, and process.
On this episode of the CarrotCast, I'm going to talk about my personal grinding experiences and how you can escape before you regret it.

I was recently in Toronto at a Mastermind where one of the exercises was the 10-minute tactic, which is to come up with a framework and my 10-minute tactic was actually the winner. But, I had sorta a head start.
I've been using a similar framework within my quarterly tasks that I call the "energy audit".
This framework only takes about 15 minutes per quarter to fill out, but it has taken me from doing things that sucked 75% of my energy to the exact opposite. I now spend somewhere near 75 or 80% doing things that give me energy and happiness.
These are the tasks that are built around your unique abilities and build up your happiness and income.
I was recently a guest on a podcast called the Two-Brain Podcast with Chris Cooper. Chris is the go-to business mentor for gym owners and more specific, Cross-Fit.
On this episode, Chris and I discuss the "energy audit" and how to fully take advantage of frameworks that can have a major positive impact on your life and business.

On this episode of the CarrotCast, I'm going to talk about ambitions, happiness, and some lessons I've learned that can help you take a shortcut to happiness.
All the hard work, all the time and energy that goes into making money and achievement can leave you feeling unhappy and unfulfilled.
This is something a lot of high achieving entrepreneurs struggle with. They struggle with being content. And probably struggle with happiness on a daily basis.
Many of us fall into the "if/then" complex and that only becomes a life-draining cycle that is hard to break from.
Here is a simple hack to go STRAIGHT to increased happiness.

We just wrapped up CarrotCamp Spring 2018 and I'm still amped up. It was a few spectacular days and I really want to, again, thank those who took the time to join us!
On this CarrotCast I want to discuss a breakthrough that three of us at camp had during a lunch about passion and fun.
A lot of entrepreneurs struggle with this because business is the passion and fun. But that can drain your energy, leaving feelings of dissatisfaction.
If you're struggling to find passion and build a business around what motivates you, you need to take this simple concept and run with it.
Listen in, get that fire in your belly, and hit us up with your comments about passion and building a business that satisfies your mission in life.
