His eyes and smile said it all…
He sat across the table from me. Cappuccino in hand. A small milk moustache formed around his face and he had that cheeky kind of look people give you that says “I know something you don’t”
“Go build it yourself, Ben”, he said… “People will flock to it and to you”
And he was right!
Over the next 8 years the likes of Bond Halpert, Alex Charfen, Anil Patel, John Carlton, Naomi Simson, Andrew Banks, Jon Giaan, Craig Ballantyne, and more would come…
Laughter is the only response as I reminisce back to 20+ years ago at the beginning of this entrepreneurial journey
As a 20 year old, all I could find were wantrepreneurs who spoke a big game, but always failed to execute. I felt very lonely and unsupported
And I mean sure… I had staff and contractors. But that relationship is of a different kind – isn’t it?
None of them were there to offer a heartfelt “It’ll be alright” when I was staring at the dreaded $0 in my bank account after making one too many mistakes.
All they’d ever ask was a structure of 11 words. I dreaded hearing them as my heart stopped beating every time one of them did
… “am I going to be paid, Ben? And if so, when?”
I went into debt, and managed to turn it around in 18months. Focusing on mastering a lot of the basic entrepreneurial skills helped a lot. But regardless of that success, I still felt lonely.
…and that’s when I found myself staring across the table at this man with the cheeky grin
Brian Kurtz helped me change my life in just this single conversation
…I had a 7-figure exit
…I received world-renowned accolades
…I helped entrepreneurs scale fast; transcending the 7-figure mark in record-time
Some even went from absolute obscurity to 7- and 8-figure exits – making their own dreams a reality
And in 2014 I began The Mastermind because I had to build it myself. Since then, we’ve helped 427 entrepreneurs and businesses scale past the 7- and 8-figure mark
