Trump & the Entrepreneur Mindset – an Interview with Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach® – Episode 254

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, after going through liberals’ greatest hits on Earth Day, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite Dan Sullivan, entrepreneur and creator of Strategic Coach®, on the podcast.

Sullivan discusses why, when few others thought it was possible, he predicted that Donald Trump would win the 2016 Presidential election. Not only were there clues from the American public to indicate the lack of support for Hillary Clinton and an intense interest in Trump, but Sullivan explains the results in terms of mindset and the difference between individuals who are “Ones” or “Twos.”

Sullivan’s expertise in the entrepreneurial world makes it easy to understand how Trump ticks, and he offers some insider insight on the type of man Trump is behind closed doors vs. what Americans interpret as he navigates his Presidency. Trump’s outsider mentality causes conflict between him and nearly every establishment functioning within Washington, D.C., but it will also be the reason for his results.

They consider Progressives’ un-American belief systems and their intolerance of other ideologies, and Sullivan expands on capitalism and entrepreneurship in the future of America.
