Today, on the Stairway to CEO podcast, I’m hanging out with Erik Huberman, the Founder & CEO of Hawke Media. Erik has been named one of Inc Magazine’s “Top 25 Marketing Influencers” and was on Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2016. In this episode, Erik shares with us his entrepreneurial journey from selling beanie babies at 8 years old to building Hawke Media into an award-winning marketing agency valued at over 75 million.
In This Episode You’ll Hear About:
“If you can’t sell Rubik’s Cubes, don’t start a Rubik’s Cube company.”
“You can’t take any of it personally. Things happen –– it’s okay.”
“Sustainably do something you love every day. I say sustainably because you need to make a living, you need to make money, whatever that means to you, but you gotta just enjoy it. Life’s too short. It’s not just about money. There are plenty of rich people who are miserable –– that to me is not success.”
“Just get shit done. What are you actually doing? Don’t get caught up it the buzzwords and the hype and all the talk. Just go to work. Get something done.”
“If you have to raise money to get your product to market, you have the wrong team, or you’re the wrong person.”
