The Importance of Influence

In this episode of Life of an Electrical Contractor, I take a break from talking about being a contractor and focus on “the life.” We tend to think of influencers as a specific type of job or title meaning you have a lot of followers on social media. The fact is, we are all influencers and we are all being influenced in some way. As a leader in your community, you are an influence on everyone around you. And as someone who is around other people and who consumes any kind of media, you are being influenced. In this episode, I want you to take a serious look at what is influencing you, and whether or not that influence helps you. Watch this episode to become a better leader by having a better understanding of what an influencer is.

Be the Better Man

On this episode of Life of an Electrical Contractor, I take a break from talking about business and instead focus on another important aspect of having a happy and fulfilling life that most people don’t talk about: being a better man. Being a better man often means resisting the urge to be the “bigger man.” We do this constantly without realizing it, which is why it’s so important to become aware of your own patterns and triggers. Often, to be the better man, you have to learn to let go of your need to be the “bigger man.” This episode will show you why and how.

The Cutting Edge of Growing Produce with Ron McKay

Ron has been a friend of mine for many years now, and I’ve watched him go from the deepest depths to the highest highs. In this interview, he’ll share the story of how he became a successful entrepreneur, how he had to shut down his business practically overnight, and how he started his newest venture, Hammock Greens.

Lessons from Patrick Bet-David and Raul Villacis That Can Help Every Entrepreneur

On this episode of the Life of an Electrical Contractor, I talk more about mindset. As a business owner, you run more than just your business. You also lead your family and your community. You have to constantly evaluate where you are so you can evolve. It isn’t comfortable to to something new, especially when things are going well, but if you want to stay ahead in business, you must constantly be expanding. The first place you need to expand is… well yourself. With that in mind, I recently made the trip to Florida for a business mastermind/boot camp with Valuetainment founder Patick Bet-David and The Next Level Experience founder Raul Villacis. The experience really gave me some new ideas to expand my business and improve my life, and on this episode, I’m going to share some of them with you. Watch the video for more.

About Your Host

My name is Jose Moreno, and I have been in the electrical business since I graduated from high school. I studied a trade rather than go to college, and I began working for a contractor. When the economy crashed in 2008, I was one of the many people who lost their jobs. I decided to double down on myself and become licensed as an electrician to run my own business. As it turned out, there was so much to learn that I hadn’t learned in school. By watching this show, you can see for yourself what some of those lessons are, and I encourage you to subscribe to this channel to learn them
