Ronan Leonard built a video meeting (Mastermind) platform using webRTC. As he doesn’t write code he went through 3 developers who could not get it to work. I wanted to find out more about how he struggled with finding the right people to bring his vision to life and how other startup founders can learn from his experiences.
We also discuss how at just 23, he helped rescue passengers and fellow staff when the cruise ship he was working on as it sank off the wild coast of South Africa. The event was also captured on camera and watched by over 10 Million people on YouTube.
As the founder of Eccountability, Ronan also shares his startup story and talks about masterminds and finding your tribe. We also talk about the role that technology has played in his success and a wide range of topics:
● Leverage. Why small business owners overlook this critical step
● The biggest lie we tell ourselves (and others)
● Rituals and Habits trump goals every time
● The age of the sharing economy
We all know that being around hungry, driven people inspires us to improve. But what almost no one understands about mindset is that it’s hard to change in isolation. It’s not reading books that help you grow. It’s getting advice from peers on how they overcame the EXACT problems and frustrations you’re facing. That is why it’s so important to participate in masterminds and surround yourself with proven leaders and successful business professionals.
Ronan believes that if you are the smartest person in the room, you need to find a new room. If you are a small business owner, today’s tech podcast will also highlight the importance of participating in masterminds and surrounding yourself with proven leaders and successful business professionals.
