Our CEO Earl Foote recently appeared on the Metanoia — Rethink Everything podcast to talk about his journey as a serial entrepreneur.
Leadership and success in business is highly dependent on knowledge, experience, and strategy. The more you can learn about what you’re trying to achieve, the more likely you’ll achieve it.
That’s why reflection, mentorship, and learning are integral parts of entrepreneurial success. Case in point: the Metanoia — Rethink Everything Podcast is a valuable source of in-depth discussion on business culture and success. It features interviews with successful entrepreneurs (like Nexus’ Earl Foote) and how they changed their mental processes and overcame adversity in their personal and professional lives.
Listen to the complete interview to discover more about what Earl discussed with host Jim Carwile on Metanoia:
To start the discussion, Jim asked Earl about the “abundance mindset” and his perspective on other people and their business’ success. He noted that Earl has continually supported local businesses, attempting to help them whenever he could.
“There’s plenty of goodness to go around in this world, and we should all participate in it,” says Earl. “Part of being successful in business, for me anyway, has been about building a supportive community.”
The fact is that success in business doesn’t always have to be a matter of competition. Admittedly, when it comes to two companies offering the same service or product in the same market, competition is a factor — but outside of that, it’s possible (and even encouraged) to help one another.
“That’s part of my life mission, to have a positive impact on those around me,” says Earl.
It’s like that saying: “a rising tide lifts all boats”. A healthy and growing business community isn’t just a matter of independent innovation and active customers — businesses can support one another for the good of all.
“I’m 100% about what I can do to help another on their journey,” says Earl. “If I can have a positive impact on what somebody else is doing, then I’m going to see if I can support them.”
