The Podcast: Why Hustle Will Make You a Winner in Business

How badly do you want success? For some entrepreneurs, their desire isn’t as powerful because when things get hard, excuses and other distractions get in their way and before they know it, their businesses are no more.

Kevin Mako has seen the cost of not being motivated to achieve success. But, through his experiences at our mechanical design firm, he’s also witnessed a commonality among the winners – their drive and passion to hustle. Without it, you don’t create opportunities. You’re merely hoping for them. While you’re hoping, others are hustling, and making it happen, getting ahead more and more every day.

Throughout the interview, Kevin talks about taking action, instead of letting your fears delay you. He discusses the importance of being an expert in your field and not letting distractions lure you away from success. Of course, there is some chat about our mechanical design firm in there too! Check the podcast out for yourself, and get all the motivation you need, here!
