The Upreneur podcast has partnered up with SCORE, hosted by Jeremy Straub, to help bring engaging conversations with today’s top leaders and business owners. In today’s episode, we spoke with Gopal Rajegowda, Senior Vice President of Related Companies. We spoke about how important it is to have a mentor at an early age. You don't know what you don't know and by having a mentor, they will be able to bring the best out of you. Being an entrepreneur is all about being curious about problems and courageous enough to do something about it. Curious people create great solutions. Patience is the key to becoming successful. You have to fully enjoy the process and the journey to success.
