On this episode of the Dreams In Drive podcast, entrepreneur, sales & customer expert, Mission Belt Co. founder, and Shark Tank alum Nate Holzapfel shares his keys to success and what it takes to be a successful brand builder and hustler. He talks about his early life growing up in rural America, why he fell in love with sales and his techniques for creating personal and professional success. This episode was actually recorded in July 2015 for the BRANDMAKERS series on ranacampbell.com. At the end of the interview, Nate asked me what format would the final product be in. I told him that I was thinking about starting a podcast but that I'd be transcribing it and posting as a written interview. Nate's advice to me? Make it happen. Do whatever it takes to get the equipment to start creating podcasts. I ended up never posting this on the site. Five months from our conversation, I launched Dreams In Drive. 19 episodes in, I'm sharing our conversation. The sound quality isn't the greatest. My interviewing isn't as refined....but the message is still there. What will you do to MAKE IT HAPPEN today? My answer to you is: whatever it takes. Put your hustler hat on, stop complaining, and start getting s**t done.
