As Keith Cunningham says: life and business is not about making more of the right choices but making fewer of the wrong ones.
This powerful phrase also applies to wealth creation.
As a business owner, you’ve likely faced the impact of what one bad call can make. A dumb mistake made after another can unleash a domino effect putting your livelihood at risk.
This pushes us to hone our decision-making skills – to ensure we minimise the amount of wrong turns we make.
Going with the same mindset, we also need to develop our skills when making decisions about building wealth.
Fortunately, we’re willing to share in this episode what we’ve learned from the stupid—and expensive—mistakes we’ve made along the way and that most Australian business owners also do.
We also share some tips and insights around how we’ve dealt with those challenges.
So if you’re an Australian business owner who wants to learn from the choices we’ve had in the past, this episode is for you.
