We have an amazing guest for you today, Tim Lawson. Tim is a Marine Corps veteran, college student at American University, found and owner of Lawson Entertainment, a company that has 4 weekly podcasts. The Veteran Empire Podcast for example was nominated for a 2013 Podcast Award in the Culture and Arts Category.

He's been able to do all this before the age of 30.

At 17 he defeated cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma, it was an experience that really helped him have determination and perseverance. He actually feels blessed to have cancer at the ripe age of 17 with his immune system able to recover fairly quickly after treatment.

He believes that he is the product of his top 5 people in his life, which include his co-host Brandon of Brandon's Bromantic Comedy, his girlfriend, and colleagues in his life.

He's working towards true freedom currently with his efforts as an entrepreneur, an internet marketer, a podcast host on several shows, and a full time student at American University. He's driven to control his time and run his life on his own terms.

The Utopia he is working toward is building his business so he can maintain his lifestyle that he has currently has ripe with freedom and being able to spread his wings while working anywhere.

"The more freedom I have , the more freedom I have to do the things I want to do. "

Compared to being a Marine, he now has to create his own opportunities and has to work hard to make everything work. These are sets of challenges that he relishes.

He loves the challenge of figuring out entrepreneurship and the opportunities it yields.

He gives his girlfriend the credit for providing a level of peace that he had never felt before.. Awww.. how sweet.

"Every day is a vacation day but every hour is a working hour." Aka the life of an entrepreneur

Tim's 3 Value Bombs for Utopians:

  • Time control is way more important than time management
  • The opposite of sadness is peace, not happiness
  • Be in constant pursuit of what that 3rd title is (ex: veteran, podcast host)

Thank you Tim for your service and for being on the show! This guy is a stud and you'll definitely want to listen to this great episode in all its entirety.

As always, a special thank you to The Strand for our intro and outro music!
