Episode 27: Why Relationships and Stories are the Keys to Success, with Corey Jahnke
6 days ago
About a year ago, Corey was lying awake at 4 am for the fourth or 5th night in a row wondering what had happened to his life. He was almost 50 years old, dead broke, in a contract to purchase a piece of land that he couldn't afford, the bank had turned down his loan 3 times, his wife had lost her job, he was renting a home where they were living and had a home for sale that wasn't moving, and he was facing a huge income tax bill. Corey was embarrassed, humiliated, and scared. How could he have let this happen? He was so anxious that his wrists just shook and ached with tension. He could easily draw a line in his mind directly to homelessness. Corey felt like Jimmy Stewart in "It's A Wonderful Life." He did have great life insurance, and he "knew" that he was worth more dead than alive. Or, was he? As Corey began to trace the ending of "It's A Wonderful Life," he began to examine the reality he had created in his mind and suddenly seven small words popped into his head: "MY FAMILY NEEDS ME TO BE STRONG!" He’s here to tell you the rest of the story… What you’ll learn about in this episode: How Corey developed his driving mantra: “my family needs me to be strong” How Corey found meaning in a job he didn’t necessarily love The story of how Corey developed relationship marketing for himself The inspiration behind Corey’s books The power and importance of keeping your “why” How Corey bounced back from a terrifying low point in his life The importance of storytelling in business and life How Corey’s life changed when he realized that all the answers he was looking for were within himself
