Rhett Power – How to Be an Entrepreneur

Rhett Power comes from the entrepreneurial school of hard knocks...

Rhett Power is the co-founder of Wild Creations, a company that was named one of the “fastest growing companies” of 2010. He was a finalist for Ernst and Young’s prestigious “Entrepreneur of the Year” award in 2011, and today he coaches top entrepreneurs from around the world.

But Rhett’s outlook didn’t always look so bright. Rhett struggled for several years to get his company off the ground and he was down to his “last tank of gas” and last few dollars just before his company took off.

This is the case for many new business owners, including myself. It’s hard, difficult work, but it is worth it.

Rhett has since grown his life’s mission to inspiring and advising new business owners. His book, The Entrepreneur’s Book of Actions outlines a year’s worth of daily practices for business owners trying to find their way.

Rhett came onto the show to discuss his life and his advice for our audience of Veterans, many of whom are seeking to start their own businesses.

We discuss:

  • how Rhett went from startlingly close to failure to running a multi-million dollar company in just a few days
  • why you shouldn’t give up
  • what new entrepreneurs should be spending their time on
  • the similarities between product-based businesses and service businesses
  • why success involves daily practices
