It’s fun to talk about success especially when it comes to entrepreneurship. We are all hoping for this grand journey where we start from the bottom but quickly make it to the top.


That happened to my good friend, Chuck Cooper. His first business was wildly successful, until it wasn’t. All of a sudden, he found himself in shame never thinking he would have failed. It all seemed too easy.


Luckily, Chuck is resourceful and found support to build himself back up and to build a new business in the making.


In this conversation, Chuck and I talk about the ups and downs of being a business owner, the fundamental skills to be successful, let it be entrepreneurship or your traditional career path, and we throw in some baseball talk both as an analogy and my predictions about my beloved St. Louis Cardinals.


Key Takeaways:

  • What makes mentors want to invest in certain people
  • Effective networking practices
  • How to build your business by creating relationships
  • What are employers looking for in their young talent?
  • A key sales strategy: picking up the phone
  • Rules you can set in place for better work life balance
  • Why to consider a change in living
  • How the game of baseball could give you comfort as a 20-something
