136. Sal Vassallo – Imagination Surplus and Creating A Purpose Greater Than Yourself

Diving into this insightful episode, we have former Olympic swimmer, creator of Performance Accelerator Formula and eCommerce Exit Strategy, Sal Vassallo. Beginning this installment, Sal explores his childhood with Lance and how he grew up as the youngest of five siblings. Sal shares his days swimming in the Olympics and elaborates on how he did not feel good enough. Sal expresses his struggles in school as he was diagnosed with ADD and how he felt that he was simply a regular child with an “imagination surplus.” Sal and Lance examine how having a purpose for your business is more important than gaining financial wealth, and how the future holds prosperity for everyone despite mistakes or adversities along the way.


Sal answers with, “Adversity creates a mindset for you, and adversity is a place to start again.”
