How do you find the key to unlocking your potential and reach your goals? David Gonzalez struggled with this issue for a long time.

The Biggest Challenge in Business
In a recent talk, Vinnie Fisher shared the six main focus areas of small businesses:
- Sales and Marketing
- Product Development and Product Creation
Most entrepreneurs spend their energy on the first two areas. The #1 focus area that most small businesses overlook is “Vision.” When David Gonzalez heard this, he immediately applied it to his business and life. He discovered that his personal vision was cloudy. From that point on, David honed in on his “Why.” He is going forward with passion and energy to create impact. He’s still a work in progress but David is excited for what the future holds. To learn more from David’s journey, catch this episode of Entrepreneur Unplugged!
