Happy Wednesday, friends! In this Startup Survival episode, we cover the 3 biggest mistakes that I’ve made during my journey in building a 7-figure business from scratch. 

Frankly, I’ve made a LOT of mistakes in the past and I continue to make mistakes. Making mistakes is normal… everyone does it! That being said, the smartest entrepreneurs and professionals can learn from the mistakes of others and avoid making the same mistakes themselves.

Listen in today, as we will discuss the biggest mistakes I made in detail, coupled with solutions that I’ve learned while making them, including hiring mistakes, scaling mistakes, and a lot more.

Episode Highlights:

00:58 I think the best entrepreneurs and professionals can learn from the mistakes of others and avoid making those same mistakes themselves.

01:31 I have always been a “go with my gut” kind of person, which is fine in many situations, but you can’t structure a company based on your gut feelings.

04:04 I avoided doing the more active outreach because I didn’t want to be annoying, and I was too soft to hear the word “no.”

05:16 Remember to sell even when you think you do not have to. If you’re running a service-based company like mine, it is often feast or famine.

06:31 There’s no way to ensure that every single hire you make will work out.

Here are the Traction books I mentioned—if you want to check them out!
