MOBE Review: Recently someone asked me: “What is the best thing and the worst thing about being the CEO of MOBE?”
It’s a more complicated question than you might realize, mostly because I rarely stop thinking about the future long enough to really ask myself how I’m feeling about the present. That said, there are definitely things I love about being the leader of this company, and like every job, there are frustrations along the way.
Statistics show that in general, people with higher incomes are happier than their peers. To a point, I agree that financial freedom has a lot to do with my own level of satisfaction in life. However, it’s not the only reason that I am fulfilled. Most of my satisfaction has to do with finding success in a business that I created.
Product Creation Is My Passion
One of the best parts of my job is the fact that I get to create all kinds of products. I’ve put together dozens and dozens of learning packages, mentorship services, business strategy resources and training videos—so many, in fact, that I couldn’t possibly give you a number. It’s my favorite thing to do because every new product is a unique and an essential part of the business learning process.
When I get feedback from the consultants who have enjoyed the products I’ve created, I get a really great feeling of accomplishment. I love hearing about the positive experiences so many people have had with my courses because I know I’ve done a good job and inspired someone to achieve greater things.
My Consultants Make Me Proud Every Day
To date, my company has paid out more than $67 million in commissions to MOBE consultants, and that makes me so happy! Just a few years ago, I never would have imagined that the business I built would be responsible for so many people’s financial freedom.
Not only am I proud of myself for creating this great system, but also, I’m proud of all the people I work with who have found their own success. MOBE isn’t just about me; it’s about all the employees, consultants and clients working towards a better financial future.
Now for the Downside
MOBE Review:Really, there’s no way I would give up being the CEO of MOBE, even if it meant losing all the difficulties and stress that often comes along with the job. I know that the benefits far outweigh the negatives. Of course, there are things I could do without.
When you’re a CEO, challenges seem to pop up at the most inopportune times. One month, there may be a disappointing result from a new strategy I put in place; the next, sales from a formerly profitable niche may fall unexpectedly. There are employees, departments, finances, websites, and so many other things to handle and each has their own set of regular challenges.
If I could make one wish, it would be that entrepreneurship was like how I imagined it a long time ago, and once my company becomes successful, there would be no more problems to solve. Unfortunately, that’s just not realistic.
I Love Being the CEO
Woodrow Wilson said something about leadership that really resonates with me:
“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”
I think he probably said it better than I could.
