I heard one of your guests …talk about it (military service) being the defining moment of his life and that really kind of resonated with me, and I have never used those words up until today, but it is absolutely been a defining moment and I would also use the word phenomenal experience”
Derek talked about how important finding a Micro Loan was to his business, as well as using Hourly Nerd to help develop his Business Plan.
Derek has this to say to potential entrepreneurs:
Podcasts and books are great and they give you a foundation, but at some point in time you just have to jump in with both feet”
