In this episode of BizNinja Entrepreneur, I had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Willie Jolley. He is an author, radio, and motivational speaker with over thirty years of industry experience. Today, he is sharing with us his insight on overcoming challenges and turning setbacks into comebacks. 


Dr. Jolley is a second-generation entrepreneur and now owns several businesses such as a speaking, publishing, media, and music business. Throughout his experiences, he has picked up a lot of great knowledge on the mindset and philosophy behind making a business successful.


One of his strongest beliefs is that a setback is just a setup for a comeback. He even wrote a book about it, and it garnered so much attention that Ford Motor Company hired him to help when they were on the brink of bankruptcy. In the matter of a few, they went from losing a million dollars a month to making a billion dollars.
