What key factors have contributed to your personal and professional success as an entrepreneur? Failing. I have failed more times than the average person and I feel like that helps me be successful.
Obviously, we all make mistakes… what is the most valuable “mistake” lesson you have learned? I use to have a difficult time listening to my coaches. I always wanted to find a better way of doing things and I have finally realized that I should just listen to them.
What are you passionate about? What do you like to do? I am passionate about helping others reach their goals. I am a big believer in the more people I help reach their goal the more successful I will be.
What key aspects of your daily routine drive your personal and professional success? Work ethic. I simply out work the competition.
What aspects of your own personal leadership are you continuing to develop and work on? Currently I am reading “Whale Done” by Kenneth Blanchard. It’s about the power of positive relationships in the work place.
Where do you see the company headed and how do you plan to achieve these goals? Our clients want us to expand 4 more times in the next 12 months. We plan on expanding to Nashville, Raleigh, Phoenix, and Miami.
