Episode 34: Nobody Knows Anything with Bert Hesse
We all seem to think we have all the answers, ask most of us for advice and we will know just what to do or say. But when you get down to it none of us really knows anything. We all have our presumptions and personal experiences that shaped who we are and what we think, but if you take a closer look, analyze the details, our knowledge is constantly evolving, growing, changing. Keeping this in mind, we can maintain a growth mindset and learn virtually anything. This perspective has allowed Bert Hesse to not just be a successful serial entrepreneur, it has allowed him to jump into completely different industries in the process. Whether starting a computer software company, creating a niche in health care, or bringing white water rapids to an urban landscape, Bert has used this mantra and mindset in every business venture he has entered. Ultimately settling on the film production, Bert Hesse isn’t just making movies, he’s creating the industry for Carolinas. Partnering with the largest university in the state along with some of it’s most influential people, Bert is once again primed for success in an area he is still learning and developing. While he will tell you he doesn’t know anything about technology, making a movie, design software, or ads for super bowl commercials, he hasn’t let that stop him. What he does know is that combining the right people, talent, and financing together and means you don’t have to. Simply follow your gut, ask a lot of questions, and don’t take no for an answer and you can have all the success you are after, despite not knowing anything. Hear how he was able to do this, in Part one of my recent conversation with Bert Hesse.
