In this episode, we speak with Bob Hunter, the founder of Oxford Pierpont, a business development services company. Bob's journey to entrepreneurship was not an easy one, as he lost his vision due to sickle cell disease in 2016 and subsequently lost his job. However, within six months, he started his own business and has been successful ever since. Bob credits his mother's "get over it" mentality for giving him the strength to overcome his adversity and not let his illness hold him back.
Bob shares his insights on overcoming adversity and maintaining a positive mindset. He mentions the concept of the "David Goggins mentality" and the importance of comparing oneself to others who have experienced greater challenges and overcome them. Bob offers two practical tips for both business and personal growth - the first being to practice meditation to strengthen one's perspective and maintain a positive mindset, and the second is to focus on fixing personal credit, as it will make it easier to grow a business later on.
Overall, this episode is an inspiring and thought-provoking conversation on resilience, determination, and the power of a positive mindset in the face of adversityBob Hunter was the director of Operations Development at L M I Solutions and had a successful career.
