How this Entrepreneur Created a “Life of Meaning” that Led to E-Commerce Success – 198

Nice guys finish last.

You’ve probably heard that saying. Unfortunately, too often it’s true.

Well, not this time.

If this podcast would have been a movie, Hallmark might have produced it. Because, this is a story of one of the good guys making it to the top of an e-commerce mountain. Though he might be well on his way to finishing “first,” it didn’t happen without a lot of hard work and a selfless dedication to others less fortunate.

Today on the AM/PM Podcast, Tim Jordan welcomes Rodrigo Blanco, a Guatemalan entrepreneur who has made a career (and a lot of money) helping others. Rodrigo shows what can happen when a talented, hard-working entrepreneur concentrates on a “life of meaning” as intently as he does on e-commerce success.
