In this focus video, Jayson Gaignard shares two stories that highlight the value in terms of ROI for building networks and connecting with people.
Just a few years ago, I was stuck on the entrepreneurial ‘hamster wheel’ building a business I hated, to buy things I didn't need, to impress people I didn't even like. I was successful on the outside, but the heaviness of that success left me yearning for the lightness of being a beginner again.
I was bankrupt on every level. Emotionally, spiritually, financially, even physically since I had built my business, like so many of us do, at the expense of my health. Add to that, I had just moved to a town I didn’t like, entered a marriage I wasn’t ready for, and was having an incredibly hard time adjusting to being a new father. But rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. Fast forward to today, and my life is virtually unrecognizable from what it was only a few short years ago…
That whole experience made me burn the boats in search of something different... something fulfilling. I didn't know what this would be at the time but by the end of our first MMT event in May of 2013, I knew I had found it. The speed in which I’ve turned my life around is thanks to one thing, and one thing only… My relationships. The rarely spoken about truth when it comes to success is that nobody does it alone. I’m not self made… I’m Community Made.
