It’s one thing to talk about finding opportunities where others only see obstacles . . .

. . . seeing the silver lining in difficult situations . . .

. . . turning coal into diamonds . . .

. . . but it’s something else entirely to actually behave this way when the chips are down and to then actually win against all odds.

Bedros is someone who has done just that.

Most people know him as the founder of the multimillion-dollar Fit Body Bootcamp franchise, which is an impressive achievement by itself, but his backstory makes his entrepreneurial wins even more remarkable.

Bedros grew up in a country gripped by Soviet communism, came to America as a child and grew up in abject poverty, and eventually pulled himself up by his bootstraps and became a screaming success in business.

And as you can imagine, Bedros learned quite a few lessons along the way about responsibility, leadership, and perseverance, which is what we talk about in this interview, as well as other aspects of entrepreneurship, including marketing, branding, sales, and business strategy.

So, if you want to get some powerful and practical insights into how to deal with life’s many challenges head on and not only survive but thrive, you want to listen to this interview.
