FREEDOM! We all want it. People fight for it. They live and die for it. So, we must all know what it is.
The truth is that if you ask one hundred people to define freedom, you will get one hundred different answers. All of them are valid. All of them are right.
The guest on today’s podcast is John Krotec, a man who is passionate about freedom. He’s an entrepreneur, writer, and army veteran.
He gained his understanding of freedom by fighting tough battles in his own life and winning. His journey highlights the theme of this show, Change Your Story, Change Your Life.
When John abused alcohol, he had to change his story. When he suffered a brain injury in a car crash, he had to change his story. When his marriage was on the rocks, he had to change his story. He did it every time and grew into the inspiring person he is today.
You’ll gain a lot by listening to John’s story. You’ll learn what it really mens to be bigger than your circumstances. You’ll come away with a greater appreciation for a business model that marries contribution and profit.
John created a company based on that model called Greenzone Hero. It honors and supports veterans who fought for our freedom. Greenzone Hero also gives veterans a platform to share their stories.
You’ll tap into your innate sense of compassion for war veterans who have sacrificed their well being and their lives to create more freedom and abundance for all of us.
John may even ignite a new entrepreneurial flame in you that can enrich your business, your life, and the lives of others.
