Why Businesses Fail—Focus On What You Enjoy For Successful Results

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk to Siimon Sander—Founder and CEO of Oscar Hamilton, a company that offers podcast production and editing services.  

Siimon is also the host of the Entrepreneur Decoded podcast and has interviewed over a hundred successful entrepreneurs.  

Today we talk about the lessons Siimon learned from a failed business and the one lesson he learned from his dad that could be a good example for us all. 

-The biggest lesson I took from my dad was, treat people kindly and don’t expect anything in return. 

We also delve deep into the importance of having goals to work towards, even when you’ve “made it“, because it can always go away tomorrow.

A few things to keep in mind as you grow your business: 

  • Leisure is a perk, not a goal
  • Keep your ego in check
  • Don’t be attached to success
  • Always keep growing and learning
  • Last but not least, ENJOY what you do!  

Plus, listen in for Siimon’s answer to: Of all the people you’ve interviewed on Entrepreneur Decoded, what three people would you pick to come to a dinner party at your house and what would you talk about?
