8 Mistakes I Made Scaling My First Business

I know you’re going to hear guru’s tell you that “mistakes are essential”, but I promise that you have 10 competitors around you right now who are biting at your heals and one good promotion away from overtaking you, and the seconds you save by not getting slowed down by mistakes will determine if you SUCCEED or if you’re constantly going to be fighting to stay ahead.

In my companies, we’ve learned (the hard way) that after making a mistake, we find a solution, and systematize it so no company I’m ever part of has to be slowed down by that mistake ever again.

When your business is small, your goal is to learn from each mistake so you’re not doomed to repeat it.

Then, after you start making money in business, your goal is to LEARN FROM THE MISTAKES OF OTHERS so you can scale faster and more predictably.

In this episode I detail 8 mistakes I made scaling my first business, that way you don’t have to learn the hard way because each of these was very costly and stressful 🙂

But those are just 8 mistakes (I probably made a more and erased them from my memory) and each of them cost me a LOT of time and money to learn, but I’ve built, sold, and acquired more than a dozen companies since then and I never made these mistakes again, and once you see this episode my hope is that you’re better suited to grow without paying to learn from these mistakes.
