Show Notes: William’s entrepreneurial endeavors: Swamp Rabbit Crossfit + Soul Yoga William’s journey to become a Senator at 32 years old Frustrated by inaction in the Senate, William decided to run for office to try and fix it – “Everything I do in my life, I go all in.” Shocked by the ineffectiveness of the legislation in South Carolina Desire to discuss issues that are most important and relevant – those that affect to peoples’ lives Issues in Washington can impact peoples’ lives – freedom and safety Problem is that the loudest voices are heard and often repeated Need to stop thinking in terms of right and left, but need to think about how we move the country forward Benefits of having a self-funded campaign – ability to do what he thinks is the right thing without conflict of interest Surprising moments in his first year as Senator: how people have forgotten the difference between right and wrong Stay grounded by remembering why you’re doing what you’re doing and that it’s for the right reasons Make better use of your time by creating processes that streamline your life – proximity Remember to slow down and be intentional in how you live your life Connect with William: Website: votetimmons.com Business website: www.timmonsllc.com Email: WilliamTimmons@SCSenate.gov Soul Yoga: SoulYogaStudio.com Swamp Rabbit Cross Fit: SwampRabbitCrossFit.com Guest Bio – William Timmons is a Republican State Senator who works as an attorney and entrepreneur in Greenville.
