Ep. 15: Embracing the Entrepreneurial Mindset
On this episode of Iconic Insights, host Heather Chastain sits down with serial entrepreneur, speaker and author Ron Sturgeon. A business owner since the age of 17, Ron began his entrepreneurial journey by working on cars—which ultimately led to building a chain of salvage yards that he sold to Ford Motor Company in 1999. Today, in addition to being a successful real estate investor, he works as a small business consultant and peer benchmarking leader, sharing his expertise in all aspects of entrepreneurship.
In this conversation, Ron and Heather talk about the importance of developing a long-term mindset and why not everyone is cut out to be an entrepreneur—or a salesperson. Ron also explains the difference between wealth and income and why it’s so important to learn how to talk about your success.

- The best ways to motivate an entrepreneur.
