Welcome to Curious Hero!
My name is Tom Polifka, the host of The Curious Hero Podcast for curious individuals who want to follow their own path and learn from others that have done just that.Freedom
That one word sums up why we want this am I right?
The freedom to choose when we work, where we work, and with whom we work. An ideal business should offer autonomy, mastery, and purpose
"Human beings have an innate inner drive to be autonomous, self-determined, and connected to one another", Dan Pink
states in his book 'Drive - The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us'.
If this resonates with you then this is where you belong, as a Curious Hero!
You have skills and expertise when combined with your passions can make for a perfect business. Curious Hero exists to help you transform those passions and expertise into a business that fuels you, serves others, and provides freedom at any age.
There has never been a better time to be curious about what you could create, that would solve a problem and create massive value for both you and your customers. The stars have aligned in your favor and it's your time to take that risk on yourself.
It's a level playing field if you're willing to build your knowledge and be willing to constantly adapt. This is true no matter if you're in your 20s, 30s, or 40s(like me) and beyond. I would even say that those over 40 have an advantage that a 25 year old doesn't.
Experience. Resilience. Grit.
There is no substitute for having put in the time to hone your craft. Will the twenty-something be more comfortable and familiar with the latest technology, yes but what they lack is the real world experience often confused with (failures).
Use that experience to boost your odds of success in your new venture. You have likely taken a lot of chances on things that didn't work out...which is the best learning environment when building your entrepreneurial muscle.
Trust me, I've been there and it's made me better for it.
