I Turned Down a 9-FIGURE Business Offer. Here’s why.

Here's a story about the time I said "no" to a 9-figure business offer from a company that wanted me to come on as a CEO with some INCREDIBLE benefits, including an options vesting plan that would have made me millions (if things went according to plan, of course). I'll share what industry this was in, and the decision making process I used to make sure I made the right decision.

I think I made the right decision. What do you think?

      Always appreciate your life examples Pat. Would love to catch you in SPI Pro AMA tomorrow, but I am still in my 9-5. Hope to make more of these in the future when I am all in my own business! side-note, loved your most recent podcast SPI #507, with Jeff Walker on PLF.

      This is a really great thought process. Definitely makes you look at the opportunity from the inside out.

      Great way to play it all out. I’m ready to take a step at something different. Just don’t know what it is. I’m really interested in learning how to edit, video, etc. Something along those lines
