Aaron Walker is, without question, a veteran entrepreneur. Starting his first business at 18, and selling to a Fortune 500 company nine short years later, demonstrates Aaron’s passion for success. Having a strong desire for personal development has kept Aaron in a weekly mastermind group for more than a decade. Aaron has enjoyed a 35-year marriage with his beautiful wife, Robin. Today, Aaron spends the majority of his time helping men grow in Success and Significance as President and Founder of View from the Top, a premier life and business coaching resource.
Aaron Walker joins me on That Sober Guy Podcast today to talk about not only how he achieved success in business, but how he avoided the pitfalls most men experience when becoming an entrepreneur, allowing him to retire multiple times. He shares his humble beginnings compared to his lifestyle now, and how "delayed gratification" was the key to his financial abundance.
A crucial part of Aaron's success is his mastermind group, a group of men from all stages of life who come together and advise and support each other. Aaron describes it as like having his "own personal board of directors" who are not family members or business associates and can give unbiased advice when it comes to business, life lessons, and most importantly relationships. Aaron tells us how our relationships are the foundation of business success as well as a fulfilling family life. We talk about how groups like mastermind groups and 12 Step groups are key to addiction recovery as well as getting through any trials we face.
Aaron says above all, his relationship with God keeps him on the right track. He also shares a little story about Johnny Cash, my musical hero, whom he knew personally.
