Are you one of us? One of the restless ones?
Do you burn just a little bit brighter, move just a little bit faster? Do you live life on your terms?
Would you say you’re a high-achiever? Someone ready to make their mark in the business world, but still looking for some clear direction on where to go next?
If so, welcome. You’re exactly why this place exists. Here, you’ll find advice, inspiration, encouragement, and motivation to succeed as an entrepreneur.
From me to you.
Who am I? My name is David Henzel and I am a hungry, fast-moving entrepreneur and personal development geek.
I’ve bootstrapped a variety of business. Technology startups, e-commerce, even brick and mortar— Today I run a content delivery network called MaxCDN.
But business is only one part of my life. I also believe very strongly in giving back. After all, I wouldn’t be where I am now without the advice and thoughts of the people who came before me.
I’ve found that I’m happiest when I’m reaching out to driven individuals like yourself and helping you achieve your dreams the way I have.
And that’s where you come in.
On this blog you’ll find my unfiltered opinions on life as an entrepreneur. You’ll read about my experiences with start ups, the tech industry, and how I balance my work with my personal life. You’ll even learn about my personal life, my struggles to overcome introversion (I’m a “recovering introvert”), how I handle stress, and how you can apply these ideas to your own life.
However, unifying each of these posts are a few key ideas. The three elements that I believe support every entrepreneur, business owner, and personal development junkie. Here they are:
Three Elements of Self-Driven Success
Change begins with your mind. Wherever you are in your journey — daydreaming in a cubicle, just launched, already several years into the grind — in order to break through your current limitation you’ll need to change your mindset.
Articles in the Mindset section of this website will cover topics like leadership, personal growth, creativity, self-development, and long-lasting behavior change.
Often, the solution to our biggest problems requires a small shift in how we view the world. I would be honored to help guide you towards that shift.
Where the right mindset can be your biggest asset, a lack of motivation can often be your greatest liability. It doesn’t matter if you have elegant solutions and innovative ideas— if you don’t take action you’ll never attain the kind of success you crave.
Within the Motivation area blog, you’ll find lessons on staying motivated, productivity tools, and goal-setting (and measuring) tactics.
While the pursuit of money may not be your biggest motivator, it certainly helps you get where you’re going. Without it, your ideas may never materialize, your dreams nothing more than fantasy.
In the third section of this blog, Money, I’ll share lessons on managing the money matters of your new adventure. Essentially, articles will fall into two categories: income (pricing, sales, marketing) and outgo (hiring, operations, managing expenses).
Without cash, you don’t have a business. I hope these articles will help you fuel your fire and continue to build wonderful things.
