S3:E16- Take the Risk! with Frank Mengert

About Frank:

Every day, I wake up inspired to be a better version of myself. I do this by using three principles: ๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ฝ, ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ด & ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด

In May of 2018, I had the opportunity to meet Gary Vaynerchuk.

Among the many pieces of advice he gave me one that impacted me the most was this:

โ€œ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™ ๐™š ๐™ซ๐™ž๐™™๐™š๐™ค ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™‡๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ ๐™š๐™™๐™„๐™ฃ, ๐™ž๐™ฉ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™˜๐™๐™–๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™š ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ก๐™ž๐™›๐™š ๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™ค๐™›๐™š๐™จ๐™จ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™ฎ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ฅ๐™š๐™ง๐™จ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™ฎ.โ€

I didnโ€™t take that advice until November but he was right.

LinkedIn has changed my life.

In 2003 I went into work, just like any other day. However this day, I was laid off.

It devastated me and threw my โ€œgame planโ€ for life in a spiral.

I made the decision to take my side-hustle at the time and turn it into my main hustle building my first company.

Today, I am on my fourth company, ebm, which is one of the largest employee benefits technology platform providers in the nation.

We help benefit consultants, carriers and enrollment firms attract, win & retain business acting as an extension of their team providing expert technology services to organizations nationwide.
