Is becoming a millionaire really a secret?
According to my latest guest, NO!
Brian Scudamore is a multiple 7 figure entrepreneur in the home services industry. He’s most well-known for his business 1-800-GOT-JUNK, which specializes in junk removal. But his advice for anyone seeking success is simple: Just ask people! Find out who is successful, ask them how they did it, and take a lot of notes. Brain says this is the most straightforward path to achievement. By showing humility first, you can get a lot of people on your side. You can learn from them, and they’ll tell you what you need to know! (I’m starting to sense a bit of a theme on this podcast!) But it hasn’t always been an easy ride for Brian.
In this episode, we talk about the importance of making mistakes and how they’re a great learning opportunity. Brain owns up to having made mistakes as a leader. He’s built up teams that ultimately failed under his leadership, damaging both his business and his career. But despite this, his brand group, O2E (Ordinary to Exceptional), is an award-winning, globally recognized company! Brian is undoubtedly a gifted entrepreneur. The ability to build up such a well-recognized brand takes true leadership. However, he’ll tell you that it’s an endless work in progress. He gives the quote, “Overnight success stories take a long time,” and it’s very accurate. But all of his success comes down to hard work, perseverance, and outstanding leadership. If you want to learn what it takes to lead people inside a business, this is the episode for you! A big thank you to Brian and thank you all for listening at home – I’ll see you in the next one!
