Jessie Rodriguez is an entrepreneur since the age of 19, and he has gone from losing everything in the crash, to bouncing back with an HGTV show. What are the success lessons we can learn from him? Why is it so important for an entrepreneur to stay fluid and nimble? How should we be gearing up for a market correction? On this episode, we talk to Jessie about his lessons on entrepreneurship.

 

Takeaways

Sometimes we spend time on how to make money instead of fine-tuning our businesses to save money.

Order materials for contractors: if someone isn’t checking they could be taking it to another job.

You either survive on fear of loss or on motivation to gain.

 

At the start of the show, Jessie shared the characteristics of an entrepreneur and why success has so much to do with constant learning. Next, we talked about how he got through the recession and actually found success during that time, and how he parlayed his success into a TV show. Towards the end, we talked about the right time to start a new business venture.

 

We also discussed;

  • Why there are more opportunities when the market crashes
  • Where Jessie finds his flips
  • How to discover your next big business

 

Entrepreneurship is a game of constantly learning, and not being too proud to do so. Ultimately, the ones that keep learning are the ones that keep growing. A lot of us often give up on things before we’ve really put in the work, but you can’t start something else if you aren’t kicking ass at what you’re already doing. Remember in the case of market corrections, there are many opportunities for people who position themselves correctly, so anticipate, embrace and get ready to grow from that change. Jessie is a powerful example of how you can find ways to win during tough times.
