168. Eric Gilbert-Williams – Wiping Off The Dust and Rocking Our Rock Bottoms

Have you heard the phrase, “hitting rock-bottom” before? Everyone struggles and hits a point where we feel the weight of the universe testing us. Our guest today shares his adventures and how he started from mowing lawns, to a direct sales organization. Joining us, we have business coach, author-to-be, and entrepreneur, Eric Gilbert-Williams. Unpacking his business experience, Eric shares his resume, changes in mindset, overcoming challenges and staying humble. Lance and Eric explore the steps in becoming an author, and how writing is one of the greatest forms of artistic expression. Tune in until the end to hear about Eric’s podcast, “From Rock Bottom to Rockin’ It,” which will be launching in April 2020!


Eric answers with, “There is no end, it’s never over. Tomorrow a new sun will rise and so will you.”
