In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Gerard Adams sits down with Dollar Beard Club co-founder Chris Stoikos to talk about the importance of mindfulness and being present. The interview starts with Adams and Stoikos simply breathing deeply and encouraging viewers to do the same -- to be centered and focused on the interview itself rather than checking a smartphone or email. 

Then, Stoikos explains how he works to improve his mindset on a daily basis, which in turn allows him to come at each new day with excitement rather than dread. 

Stoikos says he lives by two simple rules:

  1. He does what he wants.
  2. He does what he says he's going to do.

Simply by engaging on his goals and following through, Stoikos has helped make viral videos and build Dollar Beard club into a million-dollar business.
