20: How to find the time to build a business you are passionate about

Eric Foster is the founder of YBE Magazine, a quarterly publication that’s all about empowering young black men by covering stories ranging from entertainment, entrepreneurship, and education.

Publishing a magazine is a big undertaking, and we can learn a lot from Eric’s experiences in finding the time to build this business while holding a full time job, and doing it in a field that wasn’t his area of expertise.

Key points:

  • Why having the perfect experience and credentials isn’t necessary to start a business
  • What to do when you get discouraged
  • The proper way to think of failure
  • What you need to do to be able to function effectively
  • The key lesson you’ll learn from bringing your idea to life for the first time
