Ep 63: Breaking Financial Shackles by Making Mistakes with Damion Lupo

Are you afraid of making mistakes? According to Damion Lupo, you can’t achieve financial freedom without at least a little failure. Born with an entrepreneurial spirit, Damion started his first business at age 11. He has since started 30 businesses and published 5 books, but his road to success is paved with losses. A four-time college dropout, Damion became a multimillionaire by age 25 and then lost his $20 million empire by the time he was 30. Five years later he was back, reinvented, recharged, and on a mission. After all, he has learned, his current mission is to free a million people from financial bondage. He spends his time teaching and lecturing on the art of reinvention and the QRP with his unique teaching style focused on his personal life experiences and the process for developing consciousness and awareness of the truth. In this episode, we discuss failure, overcoming your ego, learning how to take a hit to the face, and focusing on what’s possible instead of what people think of you. We talk about passion and falling in love with the process, changing our mindset, and thinking about the future, as well as preparing ourselves for success.
