1. David Greenberg: Fear Is The Catalyst For Growth Phillip Bogolub 49:24

Do you want more time, more money, or more freedom and flexibility? Do you want to be the captain of your calendar? Are you skilled at building teams? Are you a builder or a sustainer? Would you happen to know your why? Time to be your boss? Tired of company politics? Well, David Greenberg was tired of working for others and bailed out of the executive life, which was not a life. Multi-unit, Executive-Model franchise ownership allowed him to enjoy financial freedom and become the captain of his calendar. 

About David Greenberg:

David Greenberg has helped hundreds of people realize their dreams to escape the oppression of a job and enjoy financial freedom through franchise ownership. He’s the matchmaker who helps people find the right franchise that matches their skills, interests, and financial goals. It’s time to be your own boss & keep 100% of the profits!

As the owner of six franchises, David understands the challenges and rewards of choosing the franchise life. He currently owns six SBJC franchises: four in the Nashville, TN, area; one in Huntsville, AL; and one in Sarasota, FL.

David was raised in a family of successful entrepreneurs. He worked for over 20 years as a marketing executive for Ford and Mazda, leading the “Zoom-Zoom” and “Ford: Powered by You” rebrands. Looking for a more sustainable lifestyle and greater professional freedom, he switched to small-business leadership and franchising in 2011.

Choosing the franchise life is a weighty decision, but David approached it with a calm, rational perspective. David is a mentor at heart and enjoys helping others become the best possible versions of themselves and fulfill their true potential. His goal is to help you make the best choice for yourself, your work, and your family – he succeeds when you succeed.

Phillip Bogolub Mentor of the Mind

Hello, my name is Phillip Bogolub. I have created a podcast show called, "Conscious Communication". The show was created from several experiences in my life but one central experience. I was an engineer traveling around the world supporting a medical device for over 25 years. During my travels I learned more about myself then I realized. Within this context I have pivoted in becoming and creating a philosophy called, "AJANOI" and out of that philosophy my "Conscious Communication" Podcast Show was born! I know you are asking, how do you say the word, "AJANOI" and what the heck does it mean? On that note, check out my podcast show, and I believe you will find the answers you seek. Empowering others empowers ourselves, that is what life is all about!
