“When you’re small if the customer says ‘We aren’t happy.” you tear up the invoice, and you eat it, and you learn a lesson from the pain.” Tim Sanders on what he learned while working for Mark Cuban 

On today’s episode, we welcome the great Tim Sanders, and for those of you who don’t know Tim, I couldn’t recommend more than to listen to this show. Tim is an incredibly vibrant lifestyle entrepreneur that has had some INCREDIBLE…and I emphasize the word INCREDIBLE business experience.

He worked side-by-side with Mark Cuban for years until Cuban sold off to Yahoo. He then worked side-by-side with the co-founder of Yahoo, Jerry Yang for a number of years until Tim launched a book that was massively successful and he toured the world promoting his book and Yahoo for a year.  After his book tour, Tim decided it was time to start his own business.

These days, Tim has written six books, working on his seventh, he is the founder of Deeper Media and a professional speaker. On the show, we get behind the mind of Tim Sanders and let me tell you….this is a man you want to listen to! Tim shares what he learned working with Mark Cuban and Yahoo, then sharing his own journey as an entrepreneur. Tim and I talk about the difference between a true lifestyle business vs. a growth business, tactics on being a great connector and leaving a good digital footprint in today’s world.

The value in this episode is HUGE!

“The entrepreneur’s journey is not about getting introduced to the right person, it’s about execution.”  Tim Sanders
