Aaron Walker is without question a veteran entrepreneur. Starting his first business at 18 and selling to a Fortune 500 company nine short years later demonstrates Aaron’s passion for succeeding. Unwilling to rest on past success Aaron started, bought and sold eight successful companies over the past 36 years. Having a strong desire for personal development has kept Aaron in a weekly mastermind group for more than a decade with Dave Ramsey, Dan Miller, Ken Abraham and seven other notable Nashvillians. Aaron has enjoyed a 35-year marriage with his beautiful wife, Robin. Today Aaron spends the majority of his time HELPING MEN GROW IN SUCCESS AND SIGNIFICANCE as President and Founder of VIEW FROM THE TOP, A PREMIER life and business coaching RESOURCE.

In this episode, Aaron and I discuss:

  • The horrific event that woke him up to what life’s all about
  • Make the right decisions, inspite of what you have to go through
  • You don’t have to have a horrible event to understand what life’s about
  • Looking at the bigger picture
  • Choosing your lifestyle deliberately, separate from outside influences
  • Set goals in increments that you can achieve
  • Determine exactly what you want to get out of this life
  • Choose your path based on the legacy you want to leave
  • Living proactively instead of reactively
  • Don’t make money your god
  • Isolation is the enemy of excellence
  • Have a mission, vision and values statement
  • Motivation is an exhaustible resource
