In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Mario Armstrong says that when people -- especially entrepreneurs -- lose their way, it's often because they lose their why. They forget the reason why they chose a particular path in the first place, what makes them special and why the world needs what they have to offer. 

One great example of this is Armstrong's first guest on the second episode of this Never Settle season. Roy Castro was a high school dropout and former felon before he turned his life around and became CEO of D.M. Ice Cream Corp. Armstrong also chats with Joanie Demer, co-founder of the Krazy Coupon Lady, and Joseph Brantuk, vice president at Nasdaq, among others.
