Adapting Through Failures
Jeremy Delk jumped into entrepreneurial ventures with the naivety of a child and the tenacity of a tycoon.
He started day trading at the age of sixteen, learning and failing with each trade. The paramount to his business success has been the process of adapting through failures.
Now he is a serial entrepreneur with a passion for disrupting industries. Jeremy’s knowledge and skills as a day trader helped him land a job as one of the youngest brokers at Fidelity trading institutional equities in Boston and later in New York.
It didn’t fulfil the entrepreneurial spark within him, so he decided to go out on his own creating Delk Enterprises. More than 20 years later, Delk Enterprises has holdings in biotech & healthcare, consumer brands, technology, building materials, and real estate developments. His businesses have earned hundreds of millions in revenue, created hundreds of high paying American jobs, and other notable distinctions.
Jeremy now focuses on investing and advising entrepreneurs through speaking. His upcoming book shares his reality of the Good, Bad, and UGLY of entrepreneurship.
It serves as a not-so-subtle reminder of fundamental principles he’s learned through his journey – while great times don’t last forever, neither do the truly bad ones.
So what it is about failures that scare most people, when withoutadobut its the key to ultimately building success? And where does he find his passion to keep going when much of entrepreneurship is the bad and the ugly?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Jeremy Delk.
