Jason Boyce, Co-Founder of DazadiThis past week, I had Jason Boyce, co-founder and CEO of Dazadi, on Critical Mass Radio Show. Founded by four brothers, Dazadi began as a modest basketball hoop internet retailer. Today, they offer over 20,000 products, high customer service, and some of the finest home recreational goods brands in the world. It is also consistently ranking on both the Inc. 5000 and the internet retailer magazine fastest growing companies list for the past five years. During Jason’s time on the show, he shared his experience in his once start-up firm and what it’s like competing with big name companies. Here are three takeaways from my time with Jason on Critical Mass Radio Show:

1. Early signs of success aren’t always direct indications of what the future holds. The curse and the blessing of being an entrepreneur is that you really do not know what you don’t know ahead of time. There is no direct path from start to go when you embark on an entrepreneurial venture, and sometimes you have to go through necessary ups and downs to get where you need to be in the long run.

Sometimes the most trying of times can be times of great gain as well. By working through struggles and obstacles, you gain resiliency for the future, because great pain and agony has a tendency to stick with you as a reminder, whenever you start to veer off of the correct path. By recovering from challenges and recognizing which paths were not successful in the past, we build the muscles needed to make better business decisions.

3. We really focus on the process, not the end zone.

There really is no end zone in business or in life, if we are constantly seeking to do better and reach new goals. Competition is a constant battle, but it also keeps things interesting and innovative – it keeps you on your toes, constantly striving to do better. In this technological era, the rate of change within business models are more accelerated than ever before, causing competitors to have to think on their feet constantly and stay ahead of the curve.
