Entrepreneur Interviews – Brad Gosse

Brad Gosse





This is the first interview is a series that I will be conducting to help new business owners or people who have been considering going into business for themselves. Being an entrepreneur can be an exciting adventure but it can also be one of the biggest challenges you will ever embark on.

My goal with this interview series is to get into the mindset of experienced business owners and do so with short, hard hitting interviews where we can learn from their great experiences and hopefully generate some new ideas based on their knowledge.

I asked Brad to do this interview long before I knew I was going to do the interview series and he happily agreed. I have personally learned so much valuable information from Brad about overall business that I knew you would love to hear what he had to say.

    Great Interview!

    Like Justin I got the chance to partner with Brad on a couple ideas – and it skyrocketed my learning. Not just online based either, but offline skills as well. Brad is great at helping you realize what your time is worth. Great ideas as well…if you have a biz idea – you can pass it by Brad and get HONEST feedback, and usually a couple ideas you didn’t even think of.

      I once froze when asked, in an interview for a grudaate traineeship at Grant Thornton, to name a time I had been wrong about something. A bit of an unfair question I thought. The interviewer clearly didn’t account for the possibility that someone might never have been wrong about anything in their entire life. I didn’t get the job and I’m certain it was down to flubbing that one question.

    This interview reminded me of the quote

    “I hear, I forget; I see, I remember; I do, I understand”

    The more you do the more you understand. Great interview. Keep them coming.

      Thanks for the feedback Robert. I have some great interviews lined up with some fascinating people. I thought kicking the series off with Brad would be a great way to come out of the gate firing on all cylinders.

    Great interview. Some great tips. It’s too bad there wasn’t more examples of some of the mistakes and failures as I find those lessons more valuable than success stories. Thanks for sharing.

      I agree Bob. But in keeping with my commitment to make the interviews quick and to the point, we had to cut it off. Brad’s blog is packed with other stories of his business trials and tribulations. And if you get a chance to see him speak live, you will get some amazing stories from him as well.

    Great post. We can all learn from Brad. The ability to say i want to be my own boss is so empowering. Building something on your own , then expecting to succeed is the way to go. All I know is that, if all of us follow the same path of persistence, like brad. We will see more success than most could ever imagine. Take a hold of your dreams and don’t die with your music still in you. Chase the sun only to realize you have our own light to shine on the world. All you have to do is give it a try and persist. And just like Winston Churchill said ” never ever give up”
