Episode 34: Jan Cavelle - The Journey of an Accidental Entrepreneur

Gold Nuggets in this Episode:

  • Juliet took their puppy for a walk at 4:30am. She thinks the puppy had mixed feelings about that.
  • “A lot of people don’t always share the tough moments; they kind of gloss over it and say ‘it was a struggle in the beginning, but look at where I am now.’”
  • “Entrepreneurs need to hear that it’s not all perfect, and it’s not this front that you see on the news or on social media; that there is so much struggle behind it to get them there.”

    “I’m all for encouraging entrepreneurship. I think there will be a great need for more and more over the coming years. But I don’t think it’s doing anybody a good service to tell them that it’s all fun and games.”
  • “Validating an idea is a plain sensible thing to do.”

    “People get on their high horse that they have this idea and therefore other people must buy it. They’re missing the whole idea that it’s a problem that they need to address and find that people want solved.”
  • “In this day and age, there’s a good argument for starting a business as a side hustle.”
  • “You are not your business. You should not measure yourself by the success of your business. That is a tough lesson to learn.”
  • “Don’t be afraid of learning, because sooner or later you’re going to have to.”
  • “If you’re going to grow a business, you want to be very sure that your reason behind it is good, and that you are mentally fit enough to do it.”
  • “Fearlessness is not the absence of fear. It’s the mastery of fear. It’s about getting up one more time than we fall down.” – Arianna Huffington
