Welcome to the Savage Entrepreneur Podcast! I’m so pumped that you’re here. The purpose of this podcast is to help you, the entrepreneur, WIN this hard-hitting emotional and financial roller-coaster sport of entrepreneurship. It’s a roller-coaster! There’s highs and lows ups and downs. I’ve built a half a dozen businesses over the last 30 years, sold a quarter of a billion dollars’ worth of product, I’ve had some Hollywood wins and some soul-crushing defeats. I want to share with you some of the lessons that I’ve learned along the journey of building companies. I always say there are only two ways to learn things in life and business. You can learn on your own, through trial and error, or you can learn from the experience of others. I also always say, the greatest learning laboratory on earth is that the feet of someone who’s already done what you’re trying to do. Learn from their experiences. This show is designed for the entrepreneur trying to go to the next level, to a level that they never been before.

    Before this past weekend, I was a self-proclaimed "Age Snob." I thought that life experience was everything. 

    But this past weekend, I got to hang out with 3 "kids" (i.e. 20-somethings) who work at SpaceX, one of them being my daughter, and I came home with a whole new outlook on life. 

    In this episode, I share with you 3 BIG lessons I took away from my time visiting SpaceX, that I believe will be hugely impactful to every visionary entrepreneur.

    Want Your Business to Take Off? Ask These 3 Questions NOW
