Make The Best Decision Today: Lessons From The Journey Of A Hippie-Raised Entrepreneur With Jason Weiss

“What is the best decision today?” All throughout his journey, Jason Weiss asks himself his question every day. Raised in a family of San Francisco hippies, Jason was used to living in the moment and not worrying too far ahead. In fact, the concept of success as defined in the dictionary is quite strange to him as he is constantly on the move. Jason Duncan follows his journey from backwoods California, to baseball, to bookselling, to being a lawyer involved in politics, to practicing in a firm that exclusively deals with a single famous person’s estate matters, and to being his own boss as the CEO of a company that provides wealth and estate advice to high net worth individuals. Listen in and see how Jason D’s five P’s hold up to Jason W’s colorful entrepreneurial journey. Spoiler alert: the fifth P fits perfectly to Jason W’s story. Listen in.

Ideas And Execution: What Separates Entrepreneurs From Wantrepreneurs With Neil Amrhein

There is no shortage of brilliant ideas, but what separates the real entrepreneurs from the wantrepreneurs is the execution. It is the reason why we always see incredible stories of unlikely people bootstrapping themselves to success in business. A lot of times, you don’t even need to have a groundbreaking product or process to disrupt the market; you just need to make improvements and applications that nobody has thought of before. Neil Amrhein, the founder of All About Care and My Goat, certainly embodies that successful entrepreneur vibe, having moved from room service to politics to home health and now to lawn care. To Neil, there is no one way to run a company – indeed, he uses two very different methodologies to grow his home health business and his lawn care operation. Despite the difference in the two business models, what ties them together is Neil’s readiness to execute instead of getting caught up in the idea stage. Listen in to learn if Jason Duncan’s five P’s hold up to this quirky outlier in the entrepreneurial universe.

Want to be a guest on The Root of All Success?

We’re always on the lookout for amazingly successful entrepreneurs with a great story.

On The Root of All Success, we are looking ONLY for entrepreneurs who founded their own companies without the help of a family business or franchise. Generally speaking, we seek to interview entrepreneurs whose businesses are producing $10mm in annual revenue and who have built a personal net worth of at least $5mm as a result of the businesses they started.

The main thing is we want guests who are truly successful and who are willing to share their story of how they achieved success.

Please note: If you do not have the experience of starting your own successful business, then do not apply.

If you are confident that you would be an amazing guest for the show, are willing and able to be outgoing, energetic and effusive, please book a 20-minute pre-screening call with Jason’s team.
