Leaving Corporate Behind
What can someone expect when they begin their entrepreneurial journey?
To answer this question I’m bringing on a guest, Eric Chen, who has been an entrepreneur for 5 years with various businesses in the physical product space. In today’s episode, he talks about working for Google, the consequences of suffering from a car accident, his first failures in starting his entrepreneurial journey, and plenty of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs looking to break away from the corporate world.
What was it like for him in those early days? How did he survive and grow from those experiences and become more resilient in the process? Learn from someone in the trenches right now who plans to build his new company, needdthat.com into an industry powerhouse.
Eric is the Founder of Needthat.com, a media company focused on informed purchasing decisions on all things product related. He began his entrepreneurial journey after a devastating car accident that led him to pursue a life focused on building a business that would inspire others to do the same. He's launched several product businesses, consulted companies to go from $0 to $250K Monthly Recurring Revenue, and loves everything to do with marketing. When he's not working on NeedThat, he enjoys listening and sharing other's stories on his podcast: the Y Factor Podcast.
