- Ian received $30,000 worth of furniture, and every piece had a major defect. Instead of chalking it up as a total loss, Ian shipped the product out, received a ton of incredible feedback (some very negative), and used that to improve on round two!
Entrepreneurial AHA Moment
- Ian’s AHA moment was that debt was the only true handcuff, not lack of money. With this AHA moment, he quit his corporate job and left for Southeast Asia and the world of Entrepreneurship.
- Ian and Dan have created quite the company to model after, and have attracted incredible Entrepreneurs to their flag. Their future is bright, and I can’t wait to monitor the trajectory.
