Internet marketing rock star Stephen Pierce has no problem telling you that at one point in his life, he was bankrupt, homeless and even struggling with thoughts of suicide and homicide. Today, he is a multimillionaire living in a 12,000-foot mansion inside a gated community on 4.3 acres in Texas.
What turned his life around? Entrepreneurship.
At the 2011 Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference, Pierce hosted a session on “7 Steps to Creating Your Own Money Making Machine.” Here, he speaks to BlackEnterprise.com about how entrepreneurs can survive tough economic times by choosing to have faith, move forward and focus on the power of positive thinking and positioning.
