Here are a few key secrets we talked about in this episode:

  • Michelle introduces Jeet Banerjee.
  • Jeet first started his business at the age of 17 – He was young with a baby face!
  • His first business client mistook him for a kid looking for his dad – so he turned and fled!
  • Everyone said, “oh Jeet, you’re too young.”
  • This big rejection was a reality check, almost deterred him from entire career as a whole. But he thought, “I can’t let it end like this.”
  • Jeet turned his liability into an asset: “Yeah, I’m young…let me own it and show why I am a better candidate.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • One of the biggest things that I learned was that my confidence exudes into the world. If I believe it, other people will believe it.
  • Rejection is going to happen, but it’s really not that bad.
  • Jeet thought he had a multi-million dollar idea and always getting rejected was devastating and eye-opening at the same time.
  • Don’t focus on money or trendy industries; go after what you are passionate about and know a lot about.
  • If you don’t like what you do, you’re going to struggle with those extra hours.
  • Get a lot of data before you launch a business, run it past people who would use it. You may need to revise or improvise your business.
  • “Anytime I have a failure, I have a period of reflection so I am a little bit smarter and better.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • “I let the early successes get to my head, and learning that lesson so early helped.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • You’re going to have successes, and you’re going to have failures. You’ve got to learn from them.
  • “I’ve always been competitive: receiving NOs never bother me, but I can’t let the last thing that happens be a NO.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • The greatest idea in the world can fail if it doesn’t have the right person behind it.
  • 99% of people are not pursuing dreams, and cite three reasons: no time, no money, and are either too old or too young.
  • Jeet shares what he would tell his younger self.
