Hi, I’m Colin. I am a former professional golfer, turned entrepreneur. I am passionate about inspiring others by sharing real stories.
After my short athletic career, I found myself at a crossroad. Actually, more like I found myself at a dead end. My whole life was dedicated to one thing, golf! I had a dream to play on the PGA Tour, teeing it up next to Tiger Woods, Sunday at the Masters. So, when that dream was not realized, I had to hit the restart button on my life.
After numerous failed business idea, including, attempts to start an online golf business, car dealership, online Shopify store, and an attempt to become an international real estate agent, I realized, I needed serious help!
So, I turned to my father Paul Morgan. Paul had his own business writing business plans and helping others start successful businesses. So, with my tail between my legs, I went to my father and asked for help. I actually started working with him and it was there I realized, I wasn’t the only one struggling to start a business. Others were trying to create their dream life, and others were failing. I was confused, I thought, “there had to be a missing link.”
So, I started on my journey of personal development. I read books, bought programs, listened to podcasts, all in an attempt to figure out the missing link. What were I and others doing wrong?
One day I came across, EOFIRE and my life literally changed in an instant. I thought, how genius it was to interview and learn from other successful people! If I could do that, I could ask all the questions I wanted to ask but couldn’t. Hence, the beginning of The Daily Grind Business Podcast.
But, that is just the start.
After about 200 interviews, I was hearing some common advice. Find mentors, “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”, ask for help, and create winning habits.
I kept hearing this voice, one step at a time, keep moving forward. I boiled it down to 1 THING, “PROGRESS”. The secret to happiness is to make progress every single day, no matter how small the step, as long as we continue to make progress, we can start to change our circumstance.
So, that became my mission, to help others make continual progress through the practice of daily behaviors.
If this is resonating with you, you probably want to stick around, check out the show, and even check out my Inner Circle Group. I am looking forward to helping you as others helped me, create the life I could only dream of.
