I like to hang out with inspiring entrepreneurs

No, not sipping coffee in their offices… I like to get out and do something fun. Even if it means breaking bones.

When you connect without it being about business, two things happen:

First, you get insights into the character of a successful business person.

Second, when the conversation isn’t forced, that’s when the most valuable business advice flows organically.

So, last year I went snowbiking with some entrepreneurs behind $100 million+ companies, and here was our (accidental) itinerary:

- Day 1: Matt broke his collarbone within 30 seconds. In the afternoon, Nick smashed into a tree and took the day off.
- Day 2: I hit a jump, fell into a tree well. My brother came after me and landed on top of my bike.
- Day 3: Brad who organized the trip gunned it through a clearing, smashed into a small river and fractured his pelvis. He drove himself out 22 miles to get help.

It was a disaster… and yet it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time!

But while we were breaking bones, we were sharing business lessons with each other.

These guys were incredibly generous with their advice, so I wanted to pay it forward and share those lessons learned with you.

I’ve got to admit, most of these lessons came from Brad Pederson, the guy that fractured his pelvis:

1. The 1 – 3 – 1 Rule (amen!)
2. Quickest To Grow ← flawless strategy
3. The 3 Things That Break
4. Hand vs Hearts
5. Magical Moments

If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room. Or snowfield.

Even though I coach businesses, I’ve never considered myself the know-it-all. I’m always looking to learn more and I’m grateful to anyone that is generous with their advice.

I aim to be just as generous with you.

I hope this video was as valuable for you as the ski trip was for me. As always, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
