HELLO YOU! Thanks for checking out the blog this week! It’s going to be a short one today, because my hat might protect me from a lot, but it does not keep the flu away! The good news is, I have decided to start vloging (video blogging), at the suggestion of my friend Ryan, and today I want to share my first one. It was my very first time, no take two, so it’s not perfect, but I hope you enjoy! See link below.
I had an awesome week of hard hatting, including several meetings with CEOs of companies based in Southeast Idaho. I want to share a few golden nuggets, because I think they are extremely valuable. From my friend and mentor Stuart, “Your idea will take you somewhere, but the ability to convince people you are the one to make it happen is so important.” He also says that, “Entrepreneurs are the least rich business people ever.” That quote gives me both a look at reality and hope for what is to come. If he can do it, I have a fighting chance. Finally, he said that think about going from 0 to 1, not 1 to 100. This was based of a book called Zero to One, which I now need to read. I thought that was an awesome perspective, because I know I get too caught up in my own thought patterns, and I like the variety that perspective provides.
I hope you enjoy my first vlog, and as always, HARD HAT ON!
