Day in a Canoe – Chris Hessler: Business, Entrepreneurship and… Brain Cancer?

In this episode, Nathan and Chris discuss:

  • The beauty of the entrepreneurial journey and knowing when to enter and exit an opportunity in the world of business.  
  • Emphasizing business development and customer acquisition as key drivers in your organization’s growth and success.
  • The power of choice and taking action when things don’t pan out the way you thought they would
  • Resiliency in the face of the toughest challenges life and business can throw your way.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you have the entrepreneurial itch, particularly at a young age, follow it.
  • Find your niche, discover what makes you invaluable at a company and make it known.
  • Slow down, stop and smell the roses, and spend time with the people you love most; you never know what curveballs life has to offer.

“If you’re going to fail, fail fast. Don’t spend millions of dollars to fail, spend hundreds of thousands.” —  Chris Hessler.
