In this episode of Keep Moving Forward I interview the original Disney entrepreneur, Lou Mongello.
What would you say if I told you that you could actually “live the dream”? I don’t mean it in a sarcastic way, nor do I mean it as this far-fetched notion that can never become reality. But what if you could actually live your dream? Turn the biggest passion of your life into a lucrative business venture? Lou Mongello is living proof that this dream career of yours is within reach. Lou dropped everything, moved from New Jersey to Orlando, abandoning two successful careers as both a litigator and an IT Consultant to chase a business idea spurned by his passion: a love of Walt Disney World. Today, he hosts WDW Radio, a 9x Best Travel Podcast; has written numerous books; began the Dream Team Project which helps children with severe illnesses and their families make a trip to Walt Disney World possible; and is a renowned speaker, hosting entrepreneurship conferences all over the country. Lou decided that he was tired of not pursuing his true ambition…so he just decided to start. He is the embodiment of the Walt Disney quote “the way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing” and his enthusiasm is contagious. Every dream that you dream really can come true, so long as you’re willing to work hard enough to achieve it. It was a privilege to speak with the man who turned his love of Disney into a successful business and I hope that you enjoy my discussion with the original Disney entrepreneur, Lou Mongello.
