Ben! Thank you for sharing your phenomenal information. 2 of my favorite parts were when you talked about the big oops moment when you surveyed your list that you would have never known if you did not ask and of course the part at the end when your wife told you to never do that again!
Ben and Jeremy – thanks. I’ve been a faithful follower of Ben’s podcasts, etc for a couple years and just love the wealth of information he shares. Truly an inspiring guy on a whole bunch of fronts (fitness, business, family, educator). Awesome presentation of how he created his enterprise.
Hi Mike! Thanks for the comment and appreciate you listening. What was your biggest take away from the interview?
I liked when he talked about the big oops moment.
I appreciated his candidness about ‘putting in the time’ and doing the hands on training/trainer work in order to develop his skills and knowledge — success doesn’t come overnight. Also his consistent message of learning from mistakes and adjusting to keep on the path of success (i.e. the video series he developed with access issues, which he moved to YouTube). Thanks again!
Yes Mike I agree. I have been hearing more and more entrepreneurs emphasizing that they were an overnight success after 10 years 😉 I also appreciated his openness of sharing mistakes made that he was able to realize and improve his business.
