96: Starting Successful Businesses with NO Industry Experience with Jeff Fenster

BiggerPockets Business Podcast

There are often standard prerequisites for starting a company. First, you need to go get a degree for a certain field, then you need to find a job that is in that field, then you need to stay in that job for 10 years to gain connections, and finally, you can start a business. Jeff Fenster, serial entrepreneur and founder of Everbowl thought this linear path was a bit outdated. If anything, Jeff thought it was slightly backwards!Jeff planned on becoming a lawyer in college, but once he had his first child, realized that being away from home wasn’t for him. He got a sales job and became the top sales rep in his company. When the company started dangling bonuses over his head, he felt uncomfortable and knew that he needed to start his own thing.He ended up founding a company that directly competed with his former employer, then sold that company, started another, sold that one, started a few more, sold those companies, and many companies later, he started Everbowl, a craft acai bowl and superfood company based out of San Diego.If variety is the spice of life, then Jeff is doing things right! He argues that the best thing you can do is go into a completely new industry, focus on a problem that competitors are overlooking, build systems to make the industry better, and carve out a portion of the market. This strategy has worked well for him as he’s profitably sold and started many different companies. If you want his breakdown on his formula to success, you’ll have to tune in to this episode!In This Episode We Cover:Why industry experience isn’t necessarily a prerequisite for successHow “fresh eyes” disrupt stagnant markets and industriesWhat to do before you try and solve a business’s problem Developing systems that beat competitors for youAddressing the not-so-obvious needs of customers Focusing on company culture and core values when building a businessLeveraging your “relationship capital” for future opportunitiesAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowAmazon AlexaBlockbusterNetflixBlackberryiPhoneBest BuyAmazonIkeaWe Build StuffNeil PatelUdemyEtsyFiverrFreelancer.com Check the full show notes here: http://biggerpockets.com/bizshow96See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

From Jeff Fenster | Lawyer To Millionaire Entrepreneur | Millionaire Secrets #113

Millionaire Secrets

Today’s guest on the Millionaire Secrets podcast is Jeff Fenster. Jeff is the founder and CEO of Everbowl, one of the fastest-growing chains of fast-casual, quick-serve healthy eating restaurants in the US. But let’s backtrack to the beginning of his career, When Jeff left college with a law degree and six-figures of debt, he had plans of becoming a sports agent. (A law career just wasn’t his idea of fun and didn’t fit his personality). The only issue with the sports agent idea was - the relentless travel. You’d think no big deal for a young guy that had just graduated college. However, as well as Jeff just beginning his career, he was also just beginning his role as a father. Travel was out. Not really knowing what to do, he took a job at ADP selling payroll services. And this is where Jeff really shot into the stratosphere. From 0 to 6 months - Jeff became the number #1 selling salesperson in the company of 2600 sales reps. But Jeff was born for entrepreneurship. And it was this feeling that led him to walk away from a $17K bonus and start his own company. There’s more. The way Jeff describes his tackling of issues when building Everbowl is both inspiring and incredibly educational. Jeff definitely thinks differently when it comes to problem-solving. Namely - he thinks about issues/challenges/problems from a different angle to everyone else. Sometimes a problem doesn’t even need solving. That’s a tool you’ll gain from watching this interview with Jeff - and you’ll be able to implement it into your own life immediately. Jeff shares his core values: Make friends Have fun Be remarkable Do it now Kaizen And digs deep into his personal philosophies about his own success. This interview is an inspirational journey with a clearly gifted man but it also has some practical nuggets of gold that we can all utilize!

Leveraging Relationship Capital, With Jeff Fenster

Business Lunch

Roland talks with Jeff Fenster in this episode of Business Lunch. Like most of our guests, Fenster is a serial entrepreneur whose main business principles are making friends and having fun! Jeff is the founder of the rapidly expanding, So Cal-based superfood brand (and now franchise), everbowl™. Fenster is all about Startups with vertical integration and revenue-driving innovation. He and Roland talk today about his entrepreneurial journey, the takeaways that can help you in your own business, the power of Relationship Capital, personal branding, and Disruptive thinking. “If you make friends with people, that’s all that matters. People like to buy from friends, and they’ll buy it because you’re providing a solution. And if you really understand and dig into their problem and what they need, and provide them a solution, they’re going to do it because you’ve built trust.” Jeff Fenster Listen today For, How to become a Top Sales Person using Relationship Capital and ‘warm introductions.’  “My mentor, Dave Meltzer, stressed early on when I was a teenager RELATIONSHIP CAPITAL, Relationship capital, relationship capital. What does that mean? That means that you build relationships, and you make deposits consistently into those relationships. So when the time is right, and you need something, you can make a withdrawal, and it’s not forced, it’s not fake. It’s real.” Jeff Fenster  How to approach a new connection in a way that’s authentic and productive. “That’s the first modality when you meet someone, is what can I do to help them? Not, what can they do for me today? It’s not all about me. What problems are you dealing with, and how can I help? And if I can, I will.” Jeff Fenster A Strategy for when you run out of Warm Introductions and Relationship Capital. “So I started to strategically look at how I could move and sell once and get 50 sales rather than cold calling 500 to get 50 sales. It was just abstractly looking at the process, and leveraging relationship capital, making ‘deposits’ where I could and using my relationships to empower others, so then it would return back to me.” Jeff Fenster Plus, You Will Also Hear About, Why 2008 wasn’t a bad time to start a business. “Actually recessions are times of opportunity. Yes. You know, when everything’s going well, It’s less opportunity because everything’s going well. When nothing’s going well, people are looking for new, for different, and if you can disrupt - that’s the opportunity.” Jeff Fenster The value of having a Mentor. “I’m going to use an analogy in sports. Tom Brady has a coach. LeBron James has a coach. I guarantee you; their coach can’t play football or basketball better than they can. That’s not what a coach or mentor is there for. They’re there because having someone who can provide insight for you, be a soundboard for you, and force you to articulate your problems, challenges, and issues sometimes solves the problem in itself… So, entrepreneurs who don’t have that, that’s a mistake.” Jeff Fenster  Why you don’t need to have tons of experience to start a business. “I think the most overrated prerequisite to starting a company is prior experience. Too many people wait. That’s a bad idea in my opinion because if you have too much experience, you’re going to do it like everyone else and you won’t stand out’. Jeff Fenster How to think in terms of Vertical Integration. “What can I do to vertically integrate more little companies inside of what I’m doing here, which don’t need to necessarily make a lot of money. If it saves you money or speeds up your throughput, that’s value. It also makes you a little bit more dynamic as a company. Jeff Fenster Plus, Two Things You Can Do That Jeff Wishes He Had Done! 1. Be more thoughtful on the amount of money you raise and in your deployment of those funds.  “A common mistake most entrepreneurs make is they think ‘we won’t need another round’ (of funding). You will need another round, whether it’s for strategic acquisitions or a whole new business model that comes up while you’re growing”. Jeff Fenster Always raise a little more than you think you need. Have a plan for when that money runs dry. 2. Protect Yourself Better! “Occasionally, there are outliers to this comment, but investors bet on the jockey. They’re betting on the entrepreneur themselves. Right? No matter how friendly or how nice or how incredible the people you work with are, no one’s protecting you”. Jeff Fenster Tune in to hear his suggestions on how he would do that now.
