"Value the people you serve." -Justin Prince
Justin Prince has a contagious passion and enthusiasm, and you can sense that energy and positivity as he speaks with Adam Nugent on Episode 5, “Life Skills from 30,000 Feet”, on the Nugent Good News Podcast. Justin talks about the lessons he learned in business from hawking animated bible movies on street corners to starting and growing four multi-million dollar businesses and helping thousands of people create their own businesses.
Prince talks about a pivotal moment in his career when he was down about not successfully selling in his commission based-job. His manager challenged him to quit focusing on himself and focus and care about other people and to try and put a smile on the customer’s face. “What happened was I shifted from focusing on me and how pissed off I was and how it wasn’t working for me to focusing on trying to make other people’s day brighter,” he said.
Another lesson he talks about is learning to know when to walk away and leaving things for the right reason. “If you leave for the right reason, it prepares you for the next opportunities.” Sometimes that means getting uncomfortable and leaving your comfort zone and be willing to update your story and change your trajectory--and finding joy in that journey.”
He has been able to share his story about believing what is “possible” and not just what is “probable” in 20 countries around the world and at the podcast table with Nugent Good
News. Visit Justin’s website at www.Iamjustinprince.com for more details about his business of helping entrepreneurs.

And we find out why Justin is called the “pushup master” and how he completed the challenge his son gave him to do 500 pushups a day for 30 days straight.
