Put yourself in this scenario: your dad is running tryouts for your town’s baseball league…
When the time comes to get picked for a team, your dad tells you that you didn’t make a team. But, he says, if you work hard enough, maybe next year there will be a spot for you.
That’s exactly what happened to Steve Strauss when he was 14 years old. He could have let that ruin his self confidence or held a grudge against his father, but that’s not the kind of household that Steve grew up in.
Instead of taking this defeat personally, he vowed to get better and make the team next year. This sort of upbringing fueled Steve to become a serial entrepreneur who is constantly challenging himself to be better every single day.
Chad and Steve have known each other for decades. Chad was over Steve’s house constantly while they were growing up and they were even roommates in adulthood.
Chad sat down with Steve for this episode of The Cannonball Mindset to talk about Steve’s family growing up, lessons learned along the way, and entrepreneurship.
