In Entrespective Conversations, Brian and Chris hear the stories that made successful entrepreneurs who they are. Perhaps more importantly, we learn the core lessons that anyone can apply to their own entrepreneurial endeavors.
These stories matter because, it turns out, most success comes not from tactical business decisions, but rather from the collection of life moments that made each guest who they are: lessons from parents at the dinner table, opportunities they never saw coming — but had the open eyes and mind to grab when they appeared — and core personal beliefs that even today offer a continual beacon that guides their path forward.
As successful entrepreneurs and conversation experts, Brian and Chris know how to listen and how to act… and how to ask questions that deliver the answers entrepreneurs need to know.
Through our guests' personal journeys, we learn the ups and downs — key decisions, winning moments, and frustrating failures — that added up to their success: The lessons we all can apply to drive our own success as well.
