    174. Why most entrepreneurs fail

    174. Why most entrepreneurs fail

    The main reason that businesses fail is this: the people who start them do so for selfish reasons. Lifestyle, passion, and money are selfish reasons to start a business, and the market does NOT care about these things. Entrepreneurship is not always fun; it’s hard, confrontational, and lonely.  The entrepreneurs who succeed are really good at doing the stuff they DON’T want to do. Before starting a business, you need an unemotional lens: look at the market and ask, where is there an opportunity? Just doing what you love makes you less likely to succeed.

    172. The Best Time to Open a RESTAURANT is Right Around the Corner

    172. The Best Time to Open a RESTAURANT is Right Around the Corner

    If you're looking to open a restaurant, or you just lost everything in your restaurant, it could be the best time in HISTORY to start up your business in the next 6 months. 
    With so many restaurants either closing or cutting staff, there are talented workers, real estate, land lords, and cheap equipment that are all available.
    •Land lords want to get paid, meaning cheaper rent for you.
    • People are hurrying to sell buildings and prices for real estate will be lower than ever. 
    • New restaurant equipment will be cheaper, and used equipment will be sold as other businesses close their doors
    • Hundreds of talented chefs, waiters, bar tenders, you name it, will be applying for new jobs after being laid off.
     With the government helping relieve the economy and businesses and programs like the PPP, you can get more help now than ever before. We're going to see resources for restaurants and small businesses trying to get their feet planted, and we could see low interest loans, subsidized loans, and maybe even grant money to help companies get back to business. 
    I don't like the restaurant business, and I wouldn't recommend you start one, but now is the time to do it if you want to get back into it or start your dream!

Great listen

Nick’s podcasts are interesting, his principles and framework is clear and consistent, and he gives great guidance that makes you want to jump out of your chair and get to work. This take on entrepreneurship isn’t new, but it is against the grain, and an extremely valuable listen.
