EP 057 | Talent Isn’t Enough with Steven Gurowitz


About this Episode

Schooling offers only a small percentage of what is needed to succeed in business. The rest is on the job training. And talent, does not equal success. Instead, you’ll need to rely on structure (systems and procedures) to make it in business.
In this episode we learn:
– working for someone else is a great way to learn your craft
– a home office is a viable way to get started as an owner, and it is not a reason for charging a low fee
– talent does not equal success
– to be successful you will need to live with rules and regulations
– you do not have to agree with your client, have an opinion


Consider role playing to gain confidence in dealing with clients.

Design Intervention

Profit is not a dirty word!

Contracts. Regardless of what contract you have, you can still get sued.
