Did you have a growth mindset from the beginning? Has that evolved?
My approach to business has evolved over time. Naturally inclined to take risks, I recognize entrepreneurship as one of the riskiest endeavors. Initially, I had a limited, finite mindset—somewhat of a lone wolf mentality, independent and less community-oriented. My growth mindset now, shaped by wisdom gained over time, emphasizes openness to the universe and a commitment to continuous learning and expansion.
In hindsight, if I could speak to my past self, I might have encouraged a more open and community-oriented mindset. For me, a growth mindset means being willing and able to adapt, learn, expand, and avoid defensiveness, embracing an offensive approach to growth.
My current perspective is that business is an infinite game with infinite resources and boundless creativity. While there are competitors in the field, I prefer to view them as worthy rivals, echoing Simon Sinek's concept. There's ample opportunity for everyone, and I focus on what winning means for my company.
My criteria for success extend beyond mere revenue. Culture and the impact we make play crucial roles in defining success for us. It's not something you can max out on; instead, it's a continuous pursuit that becomes more fulfilling the more you chase it.
