15 years ago I swapped a well paid software sales job in London, for the opportunity to be my own boss.
I swapped the boredom and security of a job, for adventure and uncertainty of running my own business.
I loved it from the first day, however I also learnt that becoming an entrepreneur had some pretty unique challenges of it’s own!
- Like finding the time for relationships, friends and family.
- Like staying passionate about your business
- Like being able to switch off and take holidays
I realised that if I wanted to have a great lifestyle as well as a strong business it had to be build around both passion and profit,
There was no point in creating a profit if I wasn’t passionate about the way I made it, and there was no point in being passionate about something if I wasn’t making any profit.
I wanted to aim for something more than just being a successful entrepreneur, I wanted to become a successful and a sustainable entrepreneur.
And that is why I started www.johnnylympus.com.
A company focused on developing authentic entrepreneurship through coaching leaders who can change the world.
What is a Authentic Entrepreneurship?
Authentic Entrepreneurship is about creating profitable and impactful organisations based on an entrepreneurs’ deepest “core” values, rather than just profitable ones. I believe that authentic organisations can be more robust, more profitable, more scalable and easier to run, but require a different leadership skillset. My passion is in teaching this skillset to the entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow in order to create a better world for us all.
