Most entrepreneurs go into business to support a certain kind of lifestyle. Unfortunately, many of them don’t have an exit strategy. Simply put, they have a business plan but do not have a life plan.
Ron Escoffery is a serial entrepreneur who’s faced these challenges himself, failed more than once, but has ultimately come out on top. He’s published three books on his experiences and, in this new podcast, is broadening the discussion on what it means to build true wealth and how to achieve it.
