Almost everyone has an idea for a business, but few take the plunge. Whether it’s a lack of passion, funds, or simply the difficulty of it all, it’s rare to see a startup founded at all, let alone find success. A lot goes into a thriving startup, and no one does it all on their own. 

Michael Haynes has worked with over 200 startups across his career, along with names such as Kraft Foods and Telstra. His company, Listen Innovate Grow, uses those three verbs to find customers for their clients and help them achieve the growth they are seeking. He’s written and spoken about his process countless times, and now he’s here to explain it to you.

Riley Jarvis invites Michael Haynes, the Founder and Principal Consultant of Listen Innovate Grow, to talk about startups and the tips for finding success. They go over Michael’s own story and how he developed the insight he has today. Then they go into detail on finding customers, working with other businesses, and changing your mindset.
