Mike Sherbakov: Simplicity, Integrity & Living a Meaningful Life
Today’s guest is Mike Sherbakov. Mike is a serial entrepreneur, philanthropist, host of the Do Great Things Podcast and founder of The Greatness Collective, which is a community of people that are passionate about making a difference and creating a better world. After serving 5 years in the Marines, earning degrees in Kinesiology and Psychology, and traveling to 52 countries, Mike realized that while he had checked all the “boxes” of success, something was missing. After a life-changing experience building a house for a family in Mexico, the spark for the Greatness Collective was born. At the intersection of community, impact and purpose, The Greatness Collective is now a community of over 50,000 people strong who are committed to doing great things and making a difference in the world.
In this episode, we talk about how to actually start something, whether a business, a nonprofit, or a movement, and the reality of what it takes to get it off the ground. We dive into simplifying your life, and how to say no to things and people respectfully in order to achieve what you are called to accomplish. We discuss how to listen to your inner guidance system, making the most of your current situation and the importance of choosing something meaningful to suffer towards. And last but not least, we talk about Gratitude and how to bring more of it into your life. So please, without further ado, let’s dive into today’s episode with Mike Sherbakov.
