Eric Thomas is one of the most sought after motivational speakers out there––I mean, he is up there with Tony Robbins––so Lori and I are thrilled to speak with him today. Eric was homeless for two years of his life, during which time he realized he needed to stop putting what he wants in the hands of others, and take ownership to achieve his dreams. He shares about what he feels his mission is today and who he is here to serve, what he recommends you do when you’re feeling stuck and the most stand-out lessons for readers to take away from his book, You Owe You: Ignite Your Power, Your Purpose, and Your Why. Our favorite thing Eric touches on, however, are his thoughts on combining average skills with phenomenal will.
Lori and I are giving away a copy of Eric’s book to the first 50 listeners who tag Eric (@etthehiphoppreacher), Lori (@loriharder) and myself (@chriswharder) on Instagram sharing their biggest breakthrough from the episode.

( 29:09 ) Chris asks Eric, “You speak to such a wide range of different people. In that range, is one group more important to speak to than the other and why?”
