Dominick is the great example of an individual who is high-achieving and working towards building a Utopia by working in both a corporate environment and by working at a startup, Internet Marketing Association.
He is also a proud husband, father, and a MBA graduate from the University of Phoenix.
For the Internet Marketing Association, he also leads a podcast that you will want to check out if you want to learn more about internet marketing. You can click here to go and check it out.
Altogether, he has an incredible resume and background.
As a Utopian, the guy is busy! This is why…
“If the stool ever gets completely stable, you go insane” is a phrase that Dominick lives by. By having many professional outlets working out, he is living by this phrase.
In this show, you will learn from Dominick about how to treat a business partnership, from his past experience that didn’t work out. If you are in entrepreneurship or interested in it, there are some great takeaways from this part of the podcast.
Rare to most, Dominick considers his Utopia consisting of less balance and more work. Following Ghandi and other high-achievers, he believes in throwing himself into work. He is well aware that he is 100% not balanced.
And that is totally, 110% ok! It's ok to pour yourself into a goal, pursue it, and work.
Entrepreneurship, like relationships, is a consistent mental challenge. To Dominick's point, you have to have self-awareness on whether or not outside forces are causing you stress or are you doing it to yourself.
In entrepreneurship, you have to take responsibility for the factors in your circle of influence that are impacting your happiness.
This rule applies to relationships as well.
It comes down to you handle your emotions internally or, in other words, what is your Emotional Quotient?
On a final note, the show had a great takeaway for high achievers. Go through the exercise on a consistent basis of what's most important from #1-#3 so you can hone in on what you should be focused on to prevent the feelings of overwhelm, which leads to stress.
Great show with Dominick Sirianni! Listen to it and please leave your comments below.
