7-Figure Small – The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur

By John Jantsch

John Jantsch talks about his latest book, The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur, on the 7-Figure Small podcast with host Brian Clark.

Being an entrepreneur is hard. It can feel isolating and self-doubt often creeps in, so it’s important to find ways to become more self-reliant. This doesn’t mean forging a path all alone—you can and should find allies who support you—but it does mean knowing when to seek advice and when to trust yourself.

Jantsch is a long-time entrepreneur, so he knows the struggles of the journey well. He wrote The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur as a “why-to” text for entrepreneurs to help them find the courage, strength, and wisdom to keep moving forward in business and in life.

The title comes from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous essay, “Self-Reliance,” and the work is driven by quotes from Emerson and other Transcendentalist authors. Jantsch draws great inspiration from this time period, which he labels as one of the first counter-culture movements in the United States, and he sees many parallels between the ideas explored by the Transcendentalists and the traits a modern entrepreneur must cultivate.

To learn more about the book and to hear Jantsch’s list of the seven most important aspects of self-reliance for entrepreneurs, business owners, and freelancers, check out the podcast.
