Entrepreneurial Idea Machine Joon Han
May 9, 2016
Welcome to Episode 32 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with entrepreneurial business strategist and full-time dad, Joon Han.
“Social entrepreneurs are going to love this book because it’s right up their alley; but, there are five different business models to use generosity, and social entrepreneurship is just one of them.”
Do you struggle with the 9 to 5? Is “working for the man” not your thing? Do you feel the entrepreneurial spirit within, but remain unsure as to how to harness that energy?
Today we listen to Joon Han, a process-oriented entrepreneur who struggled with the same questions before finding his entrepreneurial niche. We’ll learn about Joon’s struggles in the non-profit world, trying to have meaningful employment while raising a family; and how that experience helped push him towards his entrepreneurial self.
Joon discusses meaningful work and his secret to figuring out what kind of work someone can enjoy and be successful at. As a process-oriented person, Joon first devised a process to figure out his own goals and talents before using that process to develop a similar process for small businesses (go figure.) If you’ve ever considered locking yourself up in a room until you come up with a plan, Joon has some insights on that as well.
Also on this episode: crappy bosses; being a full-time Dad; giving as generosity; leveraging the power of LinkedIn; and doing a year’s worth of work in one day.
