010 - It’s not just the Devil you know
In this episode Mat talks about the inherent psychology that holds many of us back. As a practitioner (rather than an academic) Mat understands that in the real world, we all have to keep our fingers on the pulse of the current market conditions, the current competitors and so on, but, to do so at the exclusion of thinking beyond those boundaries is a dangerous oversight.
In fact, this oversight can be seen plainly by some of the biggest, most successful companies in history. A very easy example would be Nokia, the once global leader in mobile handsets.
Or another could be Blockbuster who turned down the chance to buy Netflix for just $50 million… Best of all, these examples and this episode boil it all down to a level that can be related to any size of business.
So, if you’re in business and refuse to be average, if you want to create a legacy of innovation, integrity and achievement in every aspect of your life, this podcast is for you.
We all have an entrepreneurial streak in us and this episode is your opportunity to start flexing your Maverick muscles.
