Entrepreneurialism isn't just about starting your own business. It's about creating amazing opportunities and dream scenarios for yourself. In this episode, Andy Frisella and Vaughn Kohler tell the story behind The MFCEO Project and share tips for how you can motivate successful people to work with you.

Don't wait around hoping a successful entrepreneur is going to let you help them with their projects or businesses. Start your own projects.
