100- Integrity & Experience drive new business success while facing adversity- New future for HollisAugust 28th, 2009
In this episode of The Struggling Entrepreneur, we interview an individual who has launched his business as the gateway to a new life. Hollis Wieruscheske has had over 30 years of corporate experience, with great skills in sales, marketing, finance, pricing and negotiations.
It is this wealth of experience that he brings to the table in creating his new venture, Hollis Lewis and Associates, L.L.C.
However, as you will hear in this audio episode, the main determinants for success in the new world of entrepreneurship do not come from either technical skills or the ability to make profit alone. The key success factors are:1. Integrity that values relationships and lifestyle;
2. Being a Problem-Solver, not a “technician” or “quick-fixer”; and
3. Adaptation and learning, negotiation skills and planning.
This is more than just a business to bring in revenue and profit for him. Hollis also sees this as an exciting time that will provide him the rewards of autonomy, challenge and lifestyle upon which he thrives–and this, in spite of a setback due to a health condition that impacted him during his last year in corporate America.
Can the formula for success be merely product+ experience + skills? Or can it be even more than that? Can it be also the anticipation of a future filled with reaching personal goals and seeing financial accomplishment, while being his own boss? And what would be the key ingredients for what Hollis considers “real success”?
In this audio episode, Hollis shares with us his planned exit strategy, how he finally left corporate America and how he became a full-time entrepreneur–while never sacrificing the personal values that allowed him to succeed during his 30 years at IBM. And these same values are now reaping the rewards of financial success in his new Small Business.
