Fitness Guru Jillian Michaels on Overcoming Adversity

Passion is critical for entrepreneurs.
  • ---Shares

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Bryan Elliott meets with fitness guru Jillian Michaels to discuss what drives entrepreneurs.

Elliott asks Michaels whether she thinks entrepreneurs are born or made. She replies that it's a product of both nature and nurture. Intrinsically, you must have the ability to tolerate risk, but this ability is something you can cultivate. Ultimately, entrepreneurship isn't for everyone, and you'll know if it's right for you. 

When something doesn't work out -- for Michaels that could be a canceled show or a book that doesn't become a commercial success -- you should understand that you did it because you loved it and that's enough. Passion is critical for entrepreneurs.
