019 | Dan Negroni Shares The Myth on Millennials

On the show this week, we have Dan Negroni who is the founder of LaunchBox. Dan has built  his business predicated upon connecting innovative youth with age-old experience, or in other words, bridging the gap between the generations.

Dan believes that instead of pushing kids into college we need to teach them what life is all about, ie. building relationships. It isn’t about selling, it’s about trusting relationships where you can provide value to others. It’s about how young people can learn to frame their words, their mindset, and their approach. Right now, Dan believes we do an awful job of teaching this in traditional education, but we don’t have to!

We can teach kids that it takes time to harness their power and build their mindset. Rushing into anything isn’t necessary!

To start any journey it’s important to learn about yourself. You need to become comfortable with what you’re asking of others and know it will provide value to them in some way. We are all incredibly powerful in our ability to influence people.

Dan tells us what the best way to help others is, and as well as how to learn what our master skill set is! If you’re ready to dig deep and find your true passion, then you don’t want to miss this episode.
