Who is your hero? (In business, life, or both.)

I really admire Michael Bloomberg, both for what he’s done as a business leader and for his contributions as a philanthropist.

What’s the single best piece of business advice (unorthodox tips welcome!) that helped shape who you are as an entrepreneur today, and why?

Don’t be afraid to veer off the typical pathway for fundraising and growing your business. Every business is different, so consistently following “best practices” is generally not a good practice. With so much well-documented advice out there today from venture capitalists and other entrepreneurs, take it all in but view everything with skepticism. You need to figure out the “best practice” for your own unique business. Only you can figure that out – not an outsider.

What’s the biggest mistake you ever made in your business, and what did you learn from it that others can learn from too?

There are three big mistakes that I made early on in my journey as an entrepreneur:

Danny Chavez

Vice President of San Antonio Economic Development Foundation (SAEDF), Danny Chavez

Danny Chavez is VP at SAEDF & Co-founder at Epux Dev – focused on creating jobs in San Antonio & Texas. Business Traveler. Tech. Entrepreneur. Eagle Scout.

Who is your hero? (In business, life, or both.)

In life, my parents are my heroes; their stories and where they come from are my inspiration to always go for more. The opportunities that I have had in my life are in stark contrast to the opportunities they had at my age. My parents are both veterans and raised me to have an amazing work ethic and respect for my colleagues of all ages.

In business, I look up to my dear friend and mentor, Shaun Williams. A serial entrepreneur, Shaun saw potential, groomed me and taught me how to start a company. His candid and honest perspective has lit a fire in my mind that aims for nothing other than the best of my capabilities.

Daniel Rounds is an innovation strategist for Fortune 500 companies in biotechnology, tech, aerospace/defense, and social enterprise. 

Who is your hero? (In business, life, or both.)

I would have to say Kevin Hart. He is a relentless comedian who even after he failed (did anyone see Soul Plane?) bounced back as the most successful comedian of our generation. He has leveraged his platform to branch off into many other areas that warrant him as a successful actor, comedian, and one of our generation’s most influential individuals.

What’s the single best piece of business advice (unorthodox tips welcome!) that helped shape who you are as an entrepreneur today, and why?

A lesson that I learned during my time as a collegiate athlete (track and field): when you’re not running, someone else is. This basically means that there is always someone trying to take your spot and outduel you, whether it’s the top runner at your rival school or a competitor in your respective market. Make sure you put in the work.
