In this episode…

An early definition of “entrepreneur” says that an entrepreneur is an individual that takes resources from a lower yield to a higher yield or from a lower level of productivity to a higher level of productivity. Generally, entrepreneurship should leave the person you’re serving in a better place than they were before.

To provide the services and products people need, an entrepreneur must have a great idea and, at the same time, execute it flawlessly. You could have the greatest idea in the world but if you can’t execute, market, and sell it, the idea isn’t going to be valuable to anyone.

Rich Goldstein, host of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast, is joined by Joe Polish, the Founder and President of Piranha Marketing, to talk about taking a good idea and executing it to meet customer’s needs. Joe also talks about the lessons he learned from his carpet cleaning business, the benefits of creating an E.L.F. Business™ versus a H.A.L.F. Business™, and his work in helping people recover from addiction and abuse.
