Top 5 Lessons I Learned From Making a Lot of Business Mistakes In My 20s

Top 5 Lessons I Learned From Making a Lot of Business Mistakes In My 20s

I’ve got to come clean…

I’m not a guru.

I can’t read your future, don’t perform miracles, and I’m about as enlightened as a stick.

I’m just a SaaS-obsessed business coach that has made WAY too many mistakes, enough to fill entire encyclopaedias of ‘what not to do’.

But I did do something right: 

I didn’t quit. 

I squared up my mistakes (2 failed companies), welcomed the hard lessons, and eventually became strong enough to make the right decisions (building and exiting 3 companies).

I still get asked “What do you wish you did differently in your career?”

Oh man.

I could fill books.

I have to break my answer up into decades… starting with my 20s.

At 20 years old, I was an overworked developer working for free at someone else’s startup. 

Just 10 years later at 30 years old, I had sold my 3rd business, was building my 4th and was already a multi-millionaire.

Even though I look back fondly on that decade, I still know I made decisions that cost me (or lost me) millions.

So, I’m putting a pin in my ego and owning up to my biggest mistakes in the hope that you can avoid them:

In this video I’m going to share with you:

  • The solo mistake that cost me $10 million in lost revenue
  • How I hired an executive that nearly cost me my business
  • Why ‘needing to be liked’ sabotaged my company culture
  • How wearing a suit-and-tie saved my company
  • Why selling for millions cost me millions more! (Don’t sell early)
  • How my failed investments poured cash down the drain

At least half of my wisdom comes from having screwed up enough times to know why the wrong decisions are actually wrong. 

Now I get to save SaaS founders like you from the fate I barely escaped.

It would have been so easy to quit or to stay on a course doomed to fail. 

But if I had joined the SaaS graveyard, I wouldn’t be in your inbox, on your news feed or sharing these mistakes on YouTube.

I’m here to help you get to your success twice as fast as I did.
