July 18, 2017 — Learning the hard lessons the hard way is never fun. This talk will be in the form of 5 short stories on how I self-sabotaged my own career, and my business endeavors and briefly touch on how I recovered, or didn’t in some cases. Will close with 2 revelations that anyone can and should apply in their own business.
Burning the candle at both ends (2 jobs or a side job/product)
Taking on debt to make payroll as an agency
Firing slow (bad culture fits kill morale)
Swimming against the current in the community (necessary at times, but mind your tone)
All hustle, no personal time. (nothing is worth family + relationships)
Iterate, Iterate, Iterate (perseverance)
Invest in your team at every opportunity (the golden ticket)
