In business, it is simply an absolute truth that all who decide to step into entrepreneurship are tasked with the relentless facing of obstacle after obstacle. In fact, the fear of stress and failure through the mere thought of these obstacles is by far the largest reason over 90 percent of new businesses never even make it off of the ground, let alone prosper. Only great businessmen like business Consultant Austin Cahoon are the ones that make it through the fray, past the initial trials and challenges that are bound to be presented.
Austin Cahoon is an expert business consultant who specializes in sports data, Cryptocurrency, and stock trading with an extensive past in sports betting. To Austin, one of the biggest challenges when starting a business is just getting yourself to do it.
“It takes risk, it takes stepping out of your comfort zone. People criticize it, they question it, and taking that first step and making something of your ideas is always a challenge.”. Austin believes that business in its essence is just a constant volley of peaks and valleys and all that there is to be done is to get up, learn from the failure, and move on,
Even prior to sports betting Austin started and built an oil service company that employed and housed over 100 individuals. His day-to-day actions and decisions are what determined whether or not his employees were able to put food on the table for their families.
“I had a single contract go bad and a customer refused payment on roughly 4 million dollars. At the time, the industry was slowing & I was forced to lay off my entire staff and sell everything I had built. This was a business that I put 5+ years into at 120-hour work weeks and it crumbled along with my mentality and self-belief. Getting back up and restarting was the biggest obstacle I have ever overcome.”, Austin chronicles.
Austin Cahoon proves that the only thing guaranteed in the world of entrepreneurship is the concrete fact that building a successful business is one infinite cycle of failures, events you can not control, and obstacles you may not overcome. What separates those who make it and those who are forgotten is the will to be able to get back up and persevere. Being able to garner that mindset and follow in the footsteps of the greats that came before you by risking it all can be the very thin line that separates success in the long-term, and long-term defeat.
