Ready, Fire, Learn: Leadership, Building Emotional Fitness and Succeeding Through Other People w/Adam Hergenrother

November 21, 2017

Most entrepreneurs think the best way to learn is to consume as much knowledge as possible, but the greatest learning comes from taking aim and getting into action. Why is “failing forward” such a powerful teacher? Why is it so important to hire an assistant now, instead of later? On this episode, we are joined by Adam Hergenrother who shares the mindsets, actions and behaviors that have been instrumental to his success.

There’s never going to be a perfect time to hire an assistant. -Adam Hergenrother

Takeaways + Tactics

  • When hiring the right people, it should create a value of both time and money.
  • There’s no real learning without experience
  • Confidence is an asset

At the start of the show, we talked about how Adam got started and the amazing story of how he turned his life around. Next, we talked about the importance of being willing to invite failure if you want to move forward. Adam also talked about why there’s never a perfect time to hire an assistant, and the one thing that gets in the way of the growth of entrepreneurs. Towards the end of the show, we discussed how to build up the emotional fitness to handle the problems that will come your way as you grow your business.

We also discussed:

  • The factors that make hockey stick growth possible
  • Why confidence is an asset
  • Why there’s no real learning without experience
  • The chemistry of a transformation

You are better off taking a shot and learning from failure than you are analyzing and never making a move. Success looks like a whole series of failures, so learn to invite failure. The good stuff’s on the other side! The only way to get hockey stick growth is to invest in the platform of models, systems, accountability and the x-factor: people who execute. To get to the next level, you must be all-in.
