'The amount of times you fail is the key to being a successful entrepreneur'
4 days ago
On this week's show, Brian Purcell is joined by Mark Elliott, co-founder of Voyager IP which specialises in IT for yachts and cruise ships. Mark has some great insights into the ups and downs of running your own business including the time his parents lost the family home due to his Dad’s business going bust.
"My father ran a printing press but when it ran into trouble, the banks foreclosed and you walked out the door of your house with your bags on your back. You just got on with it and I put an ad in the paper looking for work.""The amount of times you fail is the key to being a successful entrepreneur. I love what I do. I love getting up at 5am and working. I’m responsible for my own destiny and that’s my greatest driving factor every day. Just go for it and when you fail go for it again and keep going."
