The entrepreneurial path is inevitably paved with unexpected roadblocks and bumps, but it’s also filled with opportunity should you choose to see it. That’s exactly what Russ Perry, founder of Design Pickle chose to do.
In this episode I talk with Russ about his entrepreneurial journey, which spans 10 years, how he overcame some tough decisions, such as shuttering his nine-year-old design and branding agency, and how he sort of reinvented himself and built a new business model that’s kicking butt.
Check out Russ's workshop EXPAND2016. It's on December 2, 2015...perfect timing for getting you set to do great things in 2016.
This one is not so much a tool, but a great read on productivity: "10 Lessons I Learned from a Year of Productivity Experiments". The author spent 12 months conducting various productivity experiments on himself and came up with the top 10 that suited him best.
One key take away: Productivity isn't about how much you produce, it's how much you accomplish.
For this week’s Biz Hack and past episodes, head over to SuccessLab.fm. Next week I’m in the Lab with Jess Ostroff, founder of Don’t Panic Management. We talk about how to build culture in a virtual agency, particularly when your team is divided by state lines. Jess is one of my favorite people in the world – and I only have two – I’m kidding, but this is a great episode so Be sure to tune! Until then, have prosperous week!
