The Journey of the Entrepreneur: Ramen Noodles to 4 Star Hotels

Chris Brogan talks about projects that have failed and identifies the learning points.  Another key point to note for entrepreneurs is to try your idea, ask a ton of questions and then execute.  Don’t start things in a vacuum.

AJ and Chris also talk about risk when starting your new project and Chris offers some very useful tips, especially when a family is involved.

You can watch the interview with Chris on youtube here.  You can also catch part 1 of our interview with Chris here and part 2 here.

  1. Dude..this is great.

    Chris is absolutely unique. I’m an advocate of taking calculated risks.. and KNOWING it will work out. Not by some worldly force, but because you’ll make it work. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. OMG. Chris Brogan. Did you just say (at 15:44) don’t dismiss “the old people” because they only know about stuff “from the 80’s”? Who you calling “old people” buddy! Them’s fightin’ words! 🙂 PS: Loved the rest of this interview. As our friend Zane would say, “Love you. Mean it”

  3. Margo Rose says:

    I love the reassurance that if you have never failed, you haven’t learned enough. Ask a lot of questions, and then execute…great advice! You have been a consistent source of inspiration, and help

  4. Joe Sorge says:

    What an awesome job you did AJ pulling forward the real Chris with your questions. Thanks for the work.

      Thank you so much, Joe! I truly prepared for that interview because I didn’t want it to be “just another Chris Brogan interview”. Thank you for that, you just made my day! 🙂
