49. Small Town, Big Ambition

Another awesome cast from PodMax Live! This time I welcome computer wiz and super successful entrepreneur, Timothy Dick. Timothy shares his incredible story from high school biz hopeful (making a solid income from his parents’ house) to moving out graduation day following a deeper calling to move some chips on a larger level. The beginning- working with several large companies from the ground up to buying and selling his own… only to find himself back in his home town helping the community that raised him the best ways he can. #GOALS. Timothy has an incredible story of early success when the “internet was just starting” and how he evolves as the world around him does. This is an awesome listen for anyone chasing the dream, even if the dream doesn’t exist yet:). You can dream big and follow your heart from anywhere. Cheers, fellow dreamers!! AND, we had limited time for this convo (conference life), so stay tuned for a follow up cast… as you listen you’ll hear how much MORE we could of covered!
