Welcome to episode #3 of this series. Today I am delighted to be interviewing Mark Rowland, The Red Pill (That is his title…reference the movie, The Matrix, for this), of Roceteer Inc.

Down load the transcript. Mark Rowland-4.

I first met Mark about a year ago, introduced by a mutual friend. We have never met in person. From our first meeting what impressed me the most about Mark was his huge generosity…the kind of generosity that comes from knowing at a deep level that we live in an abundant Universe. I am sure you will be able to tap into this spirit in Mark as he shares the work he is doing in the world…which is breathtaking and inspirational.

* How can we take these four rocks and allow a community to flourish.

* The psychological makeup of an entrepreneur can lead to massive highs and optimism and risk taking and boldness and fearlessness and courage but then exactly the opposite as well.  A  lot of fear and insecurity and oh my God, what am I doing?

* The difference between self esteem and self confidence

*When you believe that your self esteem is conditional, and your self esteem is linked to the success of your company that’s very dangerous for any human to allow that to happen.
* Business and being a leader is 80% psychology and 20% skill
* There are other like-minded people in the world that want to really create community through an entrepreneurial spirit
