“What you think is what you say, what you say is what you do, what you do becomes your legacy.” -Brandon Dawson
As you grow your business, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the only way to succeed is by focusing on short-term gains. But the best leaders know that long-term success is based on an unshakeable foundation of purpose, principles, and values.
When it comes to growing your company, there are two distinct elements: art and science. The art is all about putting your heart into what you do—it's about passion and vision. Science, on the other hand, is all about using data to drive decisions that will help move your business forward in measurable ways.
Brandon Dawson, the co-founder and Managing Partner at Cardone Ventures, combined these two factors and was able to build successful businesses. He is a serial entrepreneur, a business strategist, and a business scaling expert with a passion for helping entrepreneurs boost their impact. As a business leader, Brandon aims to achieve results and multiply them significantly through the 10X methodology. He’s done the work, learned the lessons, built the systems, and is ready to share them!
Listen in as Daniel and Brandon discuss the difference between “scale” and “scaling” and how we can maximize our potential at a given moment and take it to the next level without outgrowing our ability to manage the growth. They also share what values and principles are critical to success, how to build a power team, how to avoid making bad decisions, how to avoid breaking down personally, financially, and professionally during rapid expansion, and if we do, how we can recover fast.
