The Single Biggest Mistake I Made in my Business Career!

A solo episode from Ryan where he opens-up all about the biggest mistake in his career. He talks about why it was the biggest mistake, what he learnt from it and how you can prevent yourself from making a similar mistake in your journey.

One of the biggest mistakes that Ryan made was that he grew up with a ‘lone wolf’ mentality. He started in sales where it was quite cut throat and he thinks it was this environment that cultured a ‘you against everyone else’ mindset in him.
This led to Ryan feeling quite isolated and alone. What helped him to overcome that was to build a network of peers. What he sometimes calls ‘building his own board’. Creating a group of people, you can lean on, leverage and talk to, that are your ‘executives’.


“I took a lone wolf mentality”

“They can be the best listener in the world but sometimes you can still feel like you’re all alone”
