Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful

“A business owner has to have patience and excellent communication skills.”

Most influential lesson learned from a mentor

“Live life by design instead of life by default. Environment is everything. Your environment is a direct reflection of yourself.”  

 

Final Round -- “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”

 

What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

“I don’t think I would go back and push the reset button to add a specific system. We’ve found a way to take advantage of our particular situation over the past three years.”

What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?

Take ownership of your responsibilities, don’t make excuses, and never blame others for your own mistakes. “Do you want to be the wave or do you want to be the surfer?”

How to exceed expectations and add the most value?

Write down all your goals and make sure to stay on track.

What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?

  1. Just do it.
  2. Surround yourself with people you admire.
  3. Get rid of any major distractions that hinder your business.
