Achieving Excellence Through Community with Aaron Walker- EP 29

Updated: May 11

‘The enemy to excellence is isolation.’

Aaron Walker contends that if you surround yourself with the right community, a group of people who care enough to tell you the truth, their insight can truly change the trajectory of your life and help you move from ordinary to extraordinary.

Aaron is the founder and president of View from the Top, a premiere life and business coaching resource committed to helping men grow in success and significance. A serial entrepreneur, Aaron has bought and sold eight successful companies over the past 37 years, and he is part of a long-standing mastermind group with the likes of Dave Ramsey, Dan Miller and Ken Abraham. Aaron’s new book, View from the Top, motivates readers to live a successful and significant life, regardless of current circumstances.

Today, Aaron sits down with Emerald to discuss his background as an ambitious entrepreneur and the inspiration behind View from the Top. He describes his approach to living with intention and explains how he supports clients in discovering their WHY. Aaron explains why he fears missing an opportunity more than he fears failure and how his spiritual gift for encouragement informs his work as a coach. Listen in for Aaron’s insight on community as the source of success and learn how mastermind groups changed the trajectory of his life!
