Start A Debt Free Business With Alan Donegan

Rebel Entrepreneur and PopUp Business School Co-founder Alan Donegan, chats with Jillian about his journey from cold-calling dud to finding financial independence in the last decade.

Quoting from his own journals, Alan recounts his struggle and feelings of inadequacy. Thankfully, he caught a break when a friend needed his help developing and implementing a class on entrepreneurship in the local school. This opportunity changed his trajectory.

“That sent me on a mission to change the way entrepreneurship is taught and  how people actually build businesses”

While hard to imagine nowadays, Alan was painfully shy when he started out. Engaging with a local networking group over breakfasts for 6 months helped him develop more confidence in putting himself out there. He firmly believes that: 

“Everything you want in life is done through or with other people. And it’s the quality of those relationships that changes everything”

This has driven Alan to enhance his people skills and learn how to connect with others through asking questions. These tiny actions can help you overcome your biggest challenges.

Alan has invested a lot in his own personal development, but truly believes we can create anything we want in life. Investing in yourself and finding your community can help make your next decade life changing! What will you do with your next ten years?

What Are You Optimizing For? | Chris Hutchins | Ep 423

Sometimes on the journey to FI, we ask ourselves the following; do I really need to spend money on this? Do I really have the time and resources for that? These questions may be easy to dismiss by saying no in order to stay on track with your financial goals, but by dismissing them, you could be missing out on something that is beneficial to your personal journey! This week we are joined by friend of the podcast, Chris Hutchins, to talk about the hacks for optimizing your life, the differences between cheapness and frugality, and the importance of valuing your time and what it can lead to. Saving money is an important part of achieving FI, but you should never feel so restricted that you miss out on investing your time and money in things that bring joy and value into your life. While saving is important, it’s okay to spend money. Whether it’s on a trip or investing in something new, there are ways to make it work without feeling guilt or shame. Prioritizing and valuing your time can introduce new experiences and provide happiness as well as perspective while on this journey!
