I first knew Josh Raglus as a young man who used to attend my nightclub events. At the time I was unaware that he wasn’t in a good place. Josh was struggling with substance abuse and subsequent trouble with the law. (Show Notes)
Josh made the decision to turn his life around by changing his inner circle and started on a new path of personal development. We reconnected years later and Josh was a new man.
Hear how Josh rose to enable himself to be in the position to grow extraordinary teams and dramatically increase his income through succeeding in two networking companies including trading forex. Josh speaks very passionately about this and goes into detail about the current company he is with. Through his real life examples, listen for his lessons on loving the product that you’re selling, leading by example, always helping and offering value to others, dealing with doubts both internally and externally and striving to be the best that you can be.
This conversation is also full of some fantastic quotes from Josh such as ‘Your bank account can only grow as much as you do’ and ‘If you don’t change, nothing will change’
And of course explore Josh’s valuable prepared answers to my final questions including the Big 5.
