Keith Yackey has been a Pastor. He’s dated porn stars. (No…really…I can’t make that shit up.) He’s created a multi-million dollar empire and promised himself that when he could, he’d share the principles that made it ALL possible (even the dating the porn star thing) available to as many people as possible. He’s got a purpose. And a passion. And you’re going to hear it all on today’s episode of The Business Called You Podcast.
Keith Yackey Interview Quotes:
In the midst of trying times, most of us don’t have the foresight to tap into the hindsight that reveals why we are going through it.
Joy is the satisfaction you experience when making progress toward your potential.
Be the type of person that others would want next to them if they were trapped in an ikea all alone for 6 hours. The kind who would jump on all the beds and have a wicked awesome fort up in no time.
Our greatest treasures are right beside us if we would only treasure them.
Everyone has potential, few go after it. Be the few. The proud ones who dare to chase that potential. Who will strive to meet the responsibility laid upon them for no other reason than it beats in their chests that they have to.
Live your own story, don’t just watch it go by.
