What’s The Secret? If I Had to Start Over (Part 4): Build An All-Star Team with Nick Ponte

Trying to do everything it takes to build a business by yourself is almost impossible. You need to leverage the expertise of other people. Don’t wait too long to build a team. But how do you do it without spending a lot of money? Today in Part 4 of this special series on “If I Had to Start Over,” Tom invited his best friend and business partner, Nick Ponte, co-founder of Offline Sharks and owner of Nick Ponte Marketing, to break down exactly what it takes to build an all-star team.

“You need to leverage other people’s skill sets that are good at doing those things that you are not good at doing. And it’s important to come to terms with that.”

– Nick Ponte

Attended the School of Hard Knocks. A former restaurant manager in Oklahoma, Tom always wanted to be self-employed and free from the butt-smooching of the corporate world. He wanted success bad enough that he picked up his family, including two small children and moved to beautiful Maui, Hawaii. Starting from zero, Tom embarked on building a local marketing consulting business. And promptly fell on his face! It seems Hawaiians were lovely people, until you tried to sell them something! But he persevered and learned from his mistakes. Today he's arguably one of the most successful in his niche and expecting to grow over 100% this year alone.
