episode 95: the american dream: be your own boss

Austin Black, co-owner of William & Grant Design talks with Dave about living the American dream and starting your own business. Listen now!

When people talk about pursuing the American Dream, they often aspire to business ownership. However, as many of you already know,

owning a business is much more than a fleeting aspiration: you have to be open to expert insight from outside advisors and be willing to put in long, thankless hours away from your family on the quest towards long-term success.

In this episode of unsuitable, we’re joined by Austin Black, co-owner of William & Grant Design. Like many of you, Austin was driven to leave a very successful career in corporate America to start his own venture. We discuss why Austin chose to leave corporate America, what challenges he faced during the startup process, and the lessons he’s learned over the years.
