There are milestones in your life that make you re-evaluate your career path – you decide to move to a new city, you get married, you start a family, or you have to take care of your parents when they grow old.
No matter what type of change prompts you to rework your career journey, there are always ways to improve your situation and stay ahead of the career change game.
Today’s show features Enrico Torres, an unassuming entrepreneur with a work ethic that perseveres through constant improvement. He spent over two decades working as a restaurant kitchen manager and a roofer before deciding that he needed a change (for the better) to accommodate his new life as a father.
His motto of making yourself indispensable continues to carry him through his ever-evolving career changes as he believes in focusing on working harder to improve yourself – skills and overall knowledge, to be better than the last guy that had your job.
Listen as Enrico shares his biggest takeaways from starting his business from scratch, while working his day job. He talks openly about his experience of making his dream happen and how the hustle never stops, especially when you become an entrepreneur!
