Over the past 3 years, Zenith Engineers has seen growth of 1924% and they've worked on major commercial projects including Apple's Steve Jobs Auditorium, the Golden Gate Bridge, and various contracts with NASA.

 

Worked on Apple's Steve Job's Auditorium, the Golden Gate Bridge, and even with NASA.

Michael Dash on His Journey from Addict to 7-Figure Entrepreneur…

Michael Dash on His Journey from Addict to 7-Figure Entrepreneur…

October 11, 2019

Ep #11 - Michael Dash joins me on the show this week to share about his journey from addict to 7-figure entrepreneur and the tactics and strategies he learned along the way. I first met Michael through the Young Entrepreneurs Council which only admits 7-figure business owners. In our interview today, we will discuss his philosophy for scaling a business and we will get into his story and new book, "Chasing the High."

 

Having dealt with addiction throughout his life and having sold his business after 11 years, Michael is now committed to supporting other entrepreneurs and business leaders to deal with addiction and addictive behaviors, especially when these behaviors are impacting an ability to lead a business and injuring personal relationships. This is why Michael wrote his new book, "Chasing the High," which unpacks his personal journey through addiction, entrepreneurship, legal battles, and how he discovered FLOW.

 

Michael has recently created a platform called F.A.T.E. (From Addict To Entrepreneur) which is designed to help others in the entrepreneurship and business community to overcome their addictive behaviors and to be able to fulfill their potential as leaders in their organizations.

Kyle Goguen on Going From Startup to $8.8M with a Pet Business

Kyle Goguen on Going From Startup to $8.8M with a Pet Business

October 4, 2019

Ep #10 - My guest today is Kyle Goguen, the founder and CEO of Pawstruck.com which has been ranked as the 20th fastest growing company in Los Angeles and the 45th fastest growing company in California. In fact, Kyle's three year company growth record is a whopping 1677%. 

 

Kyle's entrepreneurial journey started young as he founded his first eBay store at 16 years old after local restaurants had refused to hire him. eBay became Kyle's marketplace of choice for the next two years where he sold a wide array of products. Because he was so young, Kyle had to do business under his dad's name since he was underage for a PayPal account.

 

At the age of 18, he attended USC for college and majored in Industrial & Systems Engineering with an emphasis in Information Systems & Operations Management. When tuition costs ate into his savings, he chose not to go back to eBay, but rather scooped up several part time jobs including a campus video technician and College Ambassador positions for brands like PlayStation, Monster Energy Drinks, and Ubisoft. He continued through his bachelors degree and eventually his Master's as well which was in Engineering Management.

 

Despite earning a Master's in engineering and having a safe job landscape in front of him, he made the "illogical" decision to avoid an engineering career and returned to eCommerce with the launch of Pawstruck.com.

 

With Pawstruck, the idea was to source premium ingredients which would provide dog owners the healthiest and most affordable dog products on the web. This idea has taken off and has become one of the most trusted online pet stores.

In today's interview, we will dive into Kyle's journey with Pawstruck, his challenges in scaling the company, and explore details of how he successfully took this business from startup to $8.8M. Kyle has lots of amazing insights and wisdom to share so enjoy the interview.
