Being a business owner takes dedication and determination. Your mettle will be tested on a regular basis. Some obstacles may even appear as though they’ll be the end of you. But with God and His wisdom, coupled with perseverance and a good dose of common sense, your business can grow and thrive. 

In this episode, I talk about these realities with Dale Cooper, Founder, CEO and President of Xact Communications. When Dale was growing up, his father taught him that common sense would take him a whole lot further than any book learning ever could. His dad had quit school in 5th grade, and yet became a serial entrepreneur and was the smartest person Dale ever knew. As Dale shares more things he learned from his dad, a theme emerges: You will succeed if you simply commit to being a common sense entrepreneur who doesn't give up.
