MK: Dave, how would you describe your journey? Has it been smooth sailing or have there been some struggles along the way?
DL: I have had many challenges along the way. Managing my priorities has been one of the most important lessons I had to learn along the way. There is always something to do in a business and if you put your time into the wrong place your business won’t grow.
I’ve also made some bad hiring decisions in the past – which created additional work and were damaging to both the organization and the individual.
MK: What you and the team at Cultivate Advisors have accomplished is quite impressive. Tell our readers more, for example what have you found to be the keys to running a successful business?
DL: I have found that time, money, & leadership of people are 3 of the most important aspects needed to run a business. I have found a lot of success in helping others make good decisions around all 3 of these areas.
MK: What are some of your goals this year? Any big plans?
DL: I look to find harmony in my life – I find success when I can distribute my time in a way that allows me to keep the things most important to me in harmony. I am working towards a better balance here as over time I plan to work less and spend more time on family and hobbies.
I am happy to create a scenario where I can hit success everyday – my management system surrounding my priorities and my honesty with myself day to day make this possible. It’s never good to end a day with a long list to enter the next one!
MK: With a busy schedule, how do you spend your time keeping up to date or sharpening your business skills?
DL: I really enjoy both podcasts and Blinkist – I have currently been quite focused on Gino Wickman’s book “Traction”
