Entrepreneurship promotes independence and allows professionals to execute their vision and values. However, if your business is licensed under a corporation, your ideas are often appropriated and your leadership limited. Hear how a Nashville newcomer escaped a hegemonic system and discovered his individuality.
With a passion for helping addicts transform their lives, addiction counselor Dan Manson strived to manage his business with heart. Yet the newly appointed management in a licensee corporation had alternative ideas and suppressed all of Dan’s efforts, leading him to sacrifice his virtue to maintain his business. After becoming overburdened by the longstanding oppression, Dan vowed never to be exploited again and, with the help of lawyers, severed his business from the corporation. In light of his experiences, he encourages every entrepreneur to live authentically and trust themselves more than others. With an encouraging EO forum, you can receive accountability to make pivotal decisions.
