Lemonade and Legos … the start that inspired this week’s guest Steve Vetter onto a path of entrepreneurship.
... a path he quickly learned is not something you successfully walk alone.
Early on Steve realized that working 90+ hours a week was not a sustainable or scalable business model. Rather surrounding himself with the right team of people was where he would start to see quantum expansion.
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” - Seneca [Roman philosopher]
It has been within this line of thinking that Steve prepared the space for growth and as a result has seen his business climb to the 7-figure level; with it well on its way to another quantum revenue expansion.
If you too are ready to scale your business as Steve has you won’t want to miss this episode. Grab your favourite pen and paper and get ready to make notes on what it takes to see your own quantum expansion.
