I hope that you’re proud of what you have accomplished in your life. Yet there may still be a voice inside your head that says you should be further along than you are right now. So, what’s holding you back from having the impact you desire?

The answer lies in getting out of your comfort zone and staying there. Doing this means becoming FEARLESS and FOCUSED so that you can take action and break through the mental walls that stand in your way. That is the “FFwd Mindset” and the topic of today’s podcast.

My guest, David Schnurman is the CEO of Lawline, President of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) New York—one of the most prestigious chapters of EO in the world—and author of a brand new book, The Fast Forward Mindset: How to Be More Fearless & Focused to Accelerate Your Success, which I had the honor of writing the Foreword for.

Today, David joins the podcast to share his personal entrepreneurial journey—the good, the bad, and the ugly—and the formula he applied to overcome the mental, physical, and professional obstacles that arose on his path to where he is today, as well as the importance of accountability when it comes to achieving your goals.


  • How David almost didn’t become an entrepreneur – and the experiences that organically pushed him to launching Lawline.
  • How a period of slowing growth after several years of huge success inspired David’s book – and what he did to get the company’s growth back on track.
  • The formula for success David outlines in his book – and how to start getting outside your comfort zone.
  • Why specific, detailed plans and tracking your progress are so crucial to accountability.
