BMP 006 Growing Small: Using Corporate Knowledge To Start A Small Business

Growing smaller is a common trend. Tiny houses. Smaller cars. Laptops are more portable. But today’s guest took this strategy to his career plan.

Dave wanted to be a small business owner from an early age. To do this, he needed to learn everything he could about how to run a company, and then carve out his own niche.

Fresh out of college, Dave Borski worked for a large company. Then, he changed to another large company to learn a new skill. Finally, he tried out a medium-size business.

In each company, Dave gained valuable knowledge on how to effectively run a business. As a result, he knew how to make a business work. When he started his own company, he filled a niche in the existing market. Now, Dave sells his services to larger companies.

In this episode, Dave shares what it took to get from cog in the wheel to an entrepreneur.
