Let Me Save You 25 Years 150 150

Like you, I have been through a lot of ups and downs in my career as an entrepreneur. I was able to sell my last company, but previously I went out of business and then kicked out of my business by my partners. I wished someone could have saved me all this time.

On The Small Business Radio Show this week, I talked with  Shawn D. Nelson, the CEO of publicly traded retailer, Lovesac who says he can help with this problem. His company sells furniture as modular couches and bean bag chairs. Shawn holds a BA in Mandarin Chinese from the University of Utah and a master’s degree in strategic design and management from Parsons, The New School for Design in New York City, where he later became an instructor.

Shawn is the author of a new book called, “Let Me Save You 25 Years: Mistakes, Miracles, and Lessons from the Lovesac Story”. In our interview on The Small Business Radio Show we talked about his incredible entrepreneurial journey which he started as a teenager.

We discussed many of the lessons he learned in the past 25 years of running Lovesac:

Why Lovesac is a traditional origin story: He had a need!
Just Do Something
Just Do the Next Thing
Why You Never Know Until You Ask
Be What You Will Be What Not What You Are
Push Yourself Out of Your Nest
Why There Is Always A Way
Why Grit is Half the Game
How To Keep One Hand on the Now and One on the Next
How to Work in the Seams and the Cracks
How to Make Your Own Luck
How to Embrace Uncertainty
How to Talk Big and Work Small
How to Pair Stubbornness and Confident Humility
