HOW TO DEVELOP ENTREPRENEURIAL GRIT
The problem that most of us have is that you’re treating your business like an event or a weekend. You won’t succeed until it becomes a way of life.
From Australia’s own version of Shark Tank, this week we have Steve Baxter on Unstoppable. At 23, he invested $11,000 into his first startup SE Net, from the spare room of his Adelaide home. Only 8 years later he sold it to TPG Group for $373 million.
A vocal and accomplished member of Australia’s tech sector, Baxter has an impressive track record when it comes to building and growing businesses on a massive scale.
This week, we talk about what it takes to have entrepreneurial grit, and his secrets to success.
