This is a podcast where I talk to my guests about their journey to success. We talk about their education, experience, current business, and future endeavours.
A feature length episode with Shawn Khorrami, who is an author, business scaling expert and entrepreneur.
Shawn has a breadth of experience and knowledge, and she shows this when we start with the difference between an employee and an entrepreneur. We delve into his upbringing and experience with his dad’s construction business.
We talk about the importance of building a successful culture in businesses. Shawn decided to have formal education after selling his first business because he felt it was important. He tells me that this doesn’t guarantee success though.
Shawn talks about his high tolerance for taking risks and how this is a successful trait of an entrepreneur.
Shawn wasn’t keen on writing books, but he has written one with a Covid slant on business, but he is excited about his new book coming out later this year.
This is a fascinating interview and I hope you enjoy it!
