Entrepreneurs: Take a step back and breath with Jonathan Citrin

Jonathan Citrin, founder and CEO of CitrinGroup, an investment advisory firm located in Birmingham, MI joins Enterprise Radio.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Jonathan Citrin discuss the following:

  • What made you decide to become an entrepreneur?
  • What sets you apart from other entrepreneurs?
  • What were 3 of your biggest hurdles you had to overcome?
  • How does CitrinGroup experience continued success in such volatile economic times?
  • Are you 100% happy with where your company is now?

TIP: Slow down. As entrepreneurs, we work until we drop. Oftimes, this causes us to focus on day-to-day and neglect the larger picture. Take time each and every day to think macro, be the visionary for your business – no one else will. This is the only way to get your business off the ground to a bigger scale. You must focus on what is important and not let tactics keep you from thinking generatively.

He is often featured in the media for his insight on financial, economic, entrepreneurial, and investment related topics. Mr. Citrin not only offers guidance in an enlightening sense, his presentations invoke curiosity leaving his audiences motivated and excited for more. His appetite to encourage and educate for a better financial future is contagious.

In addition to his professional work, Mr. Citrin devotes time to philanthropic endeavors. He is Chair of the Board of Directors at Starfish Family Services, a Michigan-based non-profit organization, where he also serves as Chair of the Executive Committee.
