I have always said that if you want to be an entrepreneur, you have to be selfless. You need to be looking to serve and help your community.
People can tell when you aren’t being sincere, when you’re faking it, and when you are trying to deceive them.
As it turns out, being a politician isn’t that different. It’s one of the best ways you can truly create change in your community, and if you take the time to listen, people will really respect you.
At least that’s what I learned from today’s guest, Philip Levine, the former Mayor of Miami Beach.
Philip is now running for Governor with a progressive vision to move Florida forward as a leader in the 21st century economy. He wants to revitalize the economy, envisioning a Florida with better-paying jobs, more competitive public schools, and an entrepreneurial approach to protecting our environment.
In the past, he funded his own campaign, refusing money from special interests, and easily won re-election to two terms with a majority of the vote.
On this episode we had a really amazing conversation. Before he was ever in public office, Philip was an entrepreneur, creating multiple companies and scaling them to great success.
He let me in on some incredible information a lot of people don’t know about him, including how he gave back to one of the most influential people from his childhood.
Philip goes into detail on how he led a successful election campaign, the lessons he learned from Bill Clinton, and how you can become a better communicator.
If you want to hear how you can be a better entrepreneur and better humanitarian at the same time then you need to listen to Episode 602.
