Business & Life Lessons from an Anti-Hero ft. Jeffrey Wolf It's None of Your Business - The Family Business Podcast

    • Entrepreneurship

Ted & Karen are joined by Jeffrey Wolf who’s had an up and down experience with family business throughout his life and he will be the first to tell you that he’s an anti-hero who was able to come back from a challenging time. Coming out of college, Jeff was directionless and eventually joined his father who ran a wholesale operation selling mens’ dress apparel. Ted and Karen gain insight on how Jeff started out in the business and what it was like to see everything from the ground up. Time and time again, Jeff shares how grateful he was and at the same time shares his father wasn’t the type of guy who would put his arm around his shoulder and explain the intricacies of the business which is what Jeff was looking for.  Karen sheds light on the perspective of outsiders looking in and Jeff informs that people don’t know exactly what’s going on behind the scenes. Deeper into the conversation, the relationship between Jeff and his father is broken down where Jeff touches on what he wished his dad had done differently. As the landscape and environment was changing, Jeff was hit with the abrupt announcement of his father shutting down the business and Jeff dived deep into the impact it had on him and his family. This led to a rollercoaster of emotions and the outcome was Jeff coming to important realisations. It was through his life experience and how his father groomed him that he was able to come out on the other side and understand what it takes to truly be successful.
