Episode 169: What Stops Entrepreneurs from Achieving Extraordinary Growth & Succeeding Through Others

Do you want to build an empire?

Everything that’s required to achieve extraordinary results and, ultimately, build an empire is surprisingly simple – but that doesn’t mean everyone is doing those things. So in this episode, we discuss some of the simple little things that most entrepreneurs are not doing, preventing them from achieving the extraordinary growth they desire.

This episode was originally recorded for an episode of Ryan Moran’s The One Percent, but we knew that some of you needed to hear this conversation as well. You can hear more from both Ryan Moran and Geoff Woods at CapCon 2019 (Jan 21-23 in Dallas), where Geoff will be a guest speaker.

Want to look smart for a great price?

Back when Gary Keller and Jay Papasan started writing The ONE Thing, they asked, “What do we stand for?” They decided that, whatever they created, the bar for quality would be exceptionally high and whoever invested in it would receive incredible value. We still have that standard in our business, and we are always looking for other companies doing the same thing. In our search, we came across Beckett Simonon, a direct-to-consumer brand changing the way premium men’s shoes, bags, and belts are offered.
