Hi everyone, Carl Gould here with your #70secondCEO. Just a little over one minute investment every day for a lifetime of results.
I went to one of my mentors and I said, hey Bob and I said Bob I just got sued. And I told him the whole story, and he’s like, and he’s laughing and I’m like, I don’t know, did I tell a joke and I didn’t realize and he said no no no, he goes welcome to the club. It means you matter, he goes when you are subcontractor, Carl they don’t give a shit about you. He goes you weren’t even in the radar, he goes now you’re dealing with townships and states and municipalities in your building, you bought an 80 Acre Lake and you’re building subdivisions, and he goes, you matter now. Some he goes and this is one of the top home builders in northern New Jersey, and I used to do all of his landscaping work at the time. And I graduated and became a builder. And he said to me, he goes Carl, I’m pretty good at this he goes, I got sued all the time. He goes, it’s part of business at certain level, and so, I remember being very depressed, go on talk to Bob, and then I felt better not great, but better. I actually won the law suit at the end, but you gotta find what’s great about it, you gotta find the positive.
