Lessons Learned

Every market I got into I had no experience in, which was pretty difficult because everyone was looking for someone who had 10 years experience. Now they want an entrepreneur who will get in there and get a team together. My business model has always been to hire people that are smarter than me and get out of their way.

If I could go back in time and give my 20 year old self advice I'd tell him to 'embrace what you are not good at, and accept it.' I spent so many years trying to manage what I wasn't good at as opposed to what I was really good at. My forte is recognizing talent, business development and sales. I wish I had just focused purely on that and surrounded myself by people who were good at the things I was not good at. A lot of us get insecure with what we are not good at, it took me a longtime to mature as an entrepreneur to be like 'do not give me that task, I am the last person you want to give that task to'.

Building a business is an evolving process, it takes having a lot of failures along the way. Sometimes you get knocked out and you have to get back up. It is a very lonely place (building a business). When people around you do not understand what you are trying to do, and not everyone has bought into your vision. When you are not going to make payroll on Friday or facing complete shutdown--it's a scary place to be. But what keeps that fire in my belly is that I do not want to fail. I enjoy overcoming very difficult problems.
