Ep 147: The Biggest Lessons I’ve Learned This Quarter

March 31, 2020 Bobby Klinck

I’m going to share with you the four biggest lessons I’ve learned in the first quarter of 2020 in this episode. It’s been an interesting quarter, and the things I share are important lessons that you can apply to your business and life.

The first lesson I’ve learned is the value and importance of taking time off. I’ve struggled with this, partly because I love what I do. Despite this being completely true, I’ll tell you about some things that have come up this quarter which have made me realize I still need time off.

Another big lesson that I’ve learned is the value of an exceptional team. There’s been ups and downs in my team-building life, but we are now a cohesive unit. We pick up the slack for each other, and we recently were able to launch a fantastic quiz after building it over a single weekend. I couldn’t have done that alone.

The third lesson is to be ready for the unexpected. As entrepreneurs, we’re always going to face unexpected turns. If we’re not ready for these surprises, we are not going to be in a position to thrive. There are a few things you need to be thinking about regarding this and I’ll run through them with you.

We need to have perseverance, and that’s the fourth lesson I’ve learned. This goes far beyond just dealing with a pandemic like the coronavirus, so I’ll provide an example of how I had to deal with a poor launch. We can’t let something bad convince us that we shouldn’t keep going.
