We are inspired, blown away and in awe of our guest we have on the show today: Gerard Adams, co-founder of elite daily and now CEO of FOWNDERS. Gerard became a multi-millionaire before he was 25 before he lost it all.
The solution he found to earn it all back? A one stop shop for millennials to find news about the things they’re actually interested in.
With that, Elite Daily was born. Within 4 years Gerard and his team grew the site to one of the biggest online platforms for news. After Gerard’s exit from the company, he realized his entrepreneurial spirit was still very much alive.
Gerard then created FOWNDERS, out of Newark, New Jersey, to help entrepreneurs become better leaders and to rise up in their industries. He says leaders create more leaders not followers. He set new goals on helping entrepreneur become leaders and rise up in their own industry.
(10:29) “You can have everything taken away from you but they can't take your heart. They can't take it. Get back out there, you can do it again.” --Gerard Adams
(20:20) “The key to strategy is to be a little naive in the beginning. It’s ok. Break shit, make mistakes, just understand what the bigger goal, what the bigger mission is. That purpose is what is going to create your culture, values of your company and what is going to get everyone work tirelessly. At the end of the day, that work ethic is EVERYTHING” -Gerard Adams
26:11 “How you make people feel, how you lead people, how you make that sacrifice to rise up; that’s one of the greatest gifts you can have in life. Really impacting and inspiring is real leadership.” - Gerard Adams
Failure is part of the growth journey in entrepreneurship. In order to have major success, we need to constantly be building, destroying, and growing. Build your business from a place of strength and passion.
