“Your suffering is in direct proportion to the degree to which you are resisting change” (Jack Delosa, Founder of The Entourage)
What’s the #1 skill you can develop as an entrepreneur in these uncertain times? The ability to make the best move when there are no good moves.
In business, action creates momentum. But when we’re faced with challenge, the natural response is to become less decisive and retreat. If you do this, your business will suffer.
So we wanted to invite someone along for this episode of The Make It Happen Show who’s dealt with his fair share of challenges, and developed the resilience strategies to overcome them - our Founder, Jack Delosa. Apart from being a 5X AFR Young Rich Lister, 2X Best-Selling Author, and the leader of Australia’s largest movement for entrepreneurs, Jack’s also faced some significant challenges in his time in business - challenges so grand that it set him and The Entourage in a good place to weather the adversity of 2020.
