This week’s guest: Patrick Donohoe – a native of Connecticut who, you could say, “Got in with the right crowd” after moving to Utah. He now owns several businesses, hosts a financial wealth podcast, and recently wrote a book. Beyond his professional life, Pat lives with a mentality of “If you have something of value that can benefit someone else, figure out a way to give it to them,” and has graciously opened his studio doors to the Ticked Team.
Although a common tick, his greatest fulfillment is the ability to touch or influence someone else. Specifically, his community. Namely, his family.
His stewardship is his greatest blessing. He’s not big on rules with his kids, he’s more about teaching value through trust.
He considers his wife as the most important person in his life, and continuously finds ways to communicate that to her.
He wants to be a community influencer and build trust and relationships, but if he’s not starting with his family, his impact can’t be far-reaching.
Personal Tick Offs:
Pat discounts himself a lot while holding others to a high expectation, and that’s not a good combination.
He ticks himself off when he places, or projects his view of things on other people, instead of taking their different view into consideration.
While discussing Tick Offs, Pat eludes to a conference he attended called, The Perfect Day. Here’s the book.
Professional Tick Offs:
The level of expectation that others have of him – to be perfect, that he has all the answers, or that he doesn’t make mistakes.
The challenge of having a successful company. He’s not giving up, even if he’s had failures in the past.
Allowing the space in his company’s culture where employees can step in and feel like they’re making a difference from the beginning.
Inspiring employees to deliver on their best, driven by values and team.
Ben brings up that at Paradigm Life, they take the 16 Personalities Test.
