Welcome back to the dHarmic Evolution podcast with me James Kevin O’Connor, singer/songwriter and master storyteller. On today’s episode, we visit an amazing entrepreneur and the host of the Solopreneur Hour podcast, the great Michael O’Neal.   Michael is not only an established online entrepreneur but also a drummer, a car enthusiast, and an overall awesome person! It’s wonderful to hear that this powerhouse actually came from a family of musicians! Woah! Not only is Michael a talented musician, but he also is growing bigger and bigger in the online business space.   For his business, he talks largely about he started out as someone who worked for big companies and helped them grow, but it just didn’t feel right for Michael. So he took his knowledge, skills, and experience and created his own business. He started out by doing social media live trainings and eventually started his podcast, which is booming right now.   This is a great interview, and I’m grateful that Michael has been nothing but gracious toward me and the dHarmic Evolution community.    To know more about Michael and his story, listen to the full interview. You will love it!   On this episode: Michael tells me about his journey with music and what he did to transition from that to becoming an online ninja He shares about his love for vintage cars and the upcoming event he’s going to attend! Check it out! Michael tells me about all these cool people who are equally amazing as he is He encourages everyone to just begin their journey; after all, you wouldn’t know how it will end up unless you start He teaches me a strategy on how to actually attract a podcaster and get you on his show! Nice! Of course, you’ll learn some tips from Michael O’Neal on how to get your online business started and how to make it survive He calls himself “implorably unemployable.” What does that mean? Listen as Michael explains it Michael tells us about a “poolcast.” Sounds cool, doesn’t it?   Quotes from Michael O’Neal “Everyone's get so concerned about how they’re gonna do something.” “It’s going to reveal when it's going to start.” “You open one door, and another three doors open.” “If you wanna be successful, surround yourself with success.”   Resources: Bill Ray - drummer  Integral Institute The Fourth Turning by Ken Wilber Stuart Davis The Kickass Life podcast with David Wood Podmastery with Jordan Harbinger and Michael O’Neal Mechanic to Millionaire podcast with Dave MacArthur   Follow Michael: Solopreneur Hour podcast Facebook: The Solopreneur Hour Podcast Twitter: @solohour YouTube: Michael O’Neal iTunes: The Solopreneur Hour Podcast Stitcher: The Solopreneur Hour Podcast   Don’t forget!  Subscribe to dHarmic Evolution on iTunes  Please sign up on dharmicevolution.com for free bonus content!
