Shine: The Entrepreneur’s Journey
Written by Lisa Montanaro | March 7, 2011

I want to share an amazing video with you  called Shine: The Entrepreneur’s Journey. Shine is a 26-minute collaborative film project by Biznik co-founder Dan McComb and Ben Medina that explores what it takes to change the world one small business at a time. The film features interviews with select entrepreneurs around the country who share their stories. It also features professors and other business experts that share fascinating research about entrepreneurship.

I found the film inspiring, validating, funny, heartfelt, emotional and empowering! I hope it helps you think about what kind of entrepreneur you are and/or what kind of entrepreneur you want to be.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t checked out Biznik yet, hop on over and do so. Biznik is an award-winning community of entrepreneurs and small businesses dedicated to helping each other succeed.

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
