Contributed by Kym Huynh, an EO Melbourne member, EO Global Communications Commission members, and co-founder of WeTeachMe. Kym is mesmerized by entrepreneurs and their outings, so he invited EO members from various sections to share their experiences. In this second installment of Kym Huynh’s Leadership Toolkit series, Kym questioned eight entrepreneurs how they examine success.
We requested successful entrepreneurs from EO chapters around the world, “What does success looks a lot like you ?”
Success is often tied to the books we read and the people we encounter
There are many forms of success: personal, parental, spiritual, spousal and financial–just to refer a few.
For me business success appeared when I began to understand the difference in being a solopreneur versus being an entrepreneur — #TheEMyth. Entrepreneurial success performed when I began helping more about requesting the liberty questions than having the answer — #ScalingUp. Lead success saw when I began speculating more like a leader in my corporation and less like a boss — #GreatbyChoice.
Ultimately, success on every figurehead are more likely to tied to the books we read and the people we fulfill. I certainly wish everyone great and abundant escapades in both.
Financial success won’t stuff if your dwelling life, state or mindset isn’t good
Success implies gaiety, fulfillment and contribution to something bigger than me.
— Katty Douraghy, EO San Francisco, director of Artisan Creative
Living a life of intentionality
Success to me is about not having sadness. This doesn’t mean you can’t have mistakes–mistakes are natural–but instead how you respond to the mistakes and gave yourself up for a different course of action in the future.
For me, the true meaning of success is asking yourself every day, “Am I living a life of intentionality? ” This necessitates deciding how you want to feel and then taking deliberate activity forward.
I believe that the key to success is when one can identify if their managerial expedition is aligned with their spiritual outing. That’s much more important than scaling a company to US $100 M.
Finding time again to do all the things you rightfully just wanted to do
I define success as the ability to find time again so that you can do all the things you really want to do. Whether it be personal or business, these are things that you do not because you need to do them, but because you want to do them.
— Ash Rathod, managing board of Digital Focus Creatives
Creating a life which is something we all walking each other home
Success to me is the realization that every one of us have agency–the ability to decide–and that we have the ability to determine how we realise and ordeal the world.
First, the understanding that when we change the channel we meet the world, our world conversions. This understanding has given me choice in how I look at my life know-hows, and subsequently how I experience life.
Second, the realization that we can’t change our past but we can create our future. We have the ability to envision a future; one that is hopefully so brilliant and vivid that it becomes a guiding light for all our life decisions.
Third, the empowerment in knowing that the great thing about life is that we don’t have to look like what we want to become–but instead, it’s all about centre, libido and science. Satisfy those three the needs and the destination is inevitable.
And lastly, the grace in is recognized that as per the gumption of David O. McKay , no success in life-time reimburses for outage in the home.
And whilst home can imply “home” in the nuclear impression, if we include our friends, communities and the lives we touch , and build a life where we lift each other, then perhaps we can create a life where we all stroll each other home.

Having enough coin to do what you crave — and enough time to enjoy it
Success is all about the freedom to choose how I invest my duration both personally and professionally. When I became the CEO of our clas business at senility 28, I did it out of a sense of duty–not undoubtedly because it was what I wanted to do. My philosophy is: You need enough coin to do the things you want to do but you likewise need enough time to enjoy it.
— Richard J Bryan, EO Colorado, founder, The Bryan Group
Positively feign the wellbeing of others
I get the most joy out of knowing I has assisted in person statu up. Whether that’s making an introduction, reflecting a light on a solution to a problem they are facing, or helping them reach their goals and establish even bigger objectives. I get a ton of good vibes knowing that I was part of that success.
I judge my success by the positive effect I have on the wellbeing of others. That and knowing I have given my all in an activity or objective. Because at the end of the day, that’s all we can do.
— Stu Swineford, EO Colorado, founder, Relish Studio
Wearing only one hat
It is important to define success at the start of your entrepreneurial journey.
My goal was simple. At the beginning I wore 20 hats. I selected a line in the sand and stated that, once successful, I would be wearing one hat–and that hat is “owner”.
Success meant creating a business that could scale and have the proper processes and systems to operate without a dependency on an owner.
— Tim Glennie, EO Colorado, co-founder and organizing spouse, BridgeView
