Episode 46

The SHAPE Formula for Success with Mike Smerklo

Published on: 23rd June, 2021

What if the secret to being a successful entrepreneur had nothing to do with your business plan, resources, market size, or strategy? If your success or failure weren’t dependent on how much money you have, where you grew up, or the level of education you received?

Welcome to episode 46 where I am joined by business leader Mike Smerklo as we discuss his latest book Mr, Monkey and Me, where we discuss his entrepreneurial journey and what he calls the SHAPE method to success. And why he thinks the difference between success and failure is right between your ears.
