#1: Adam Tanaka, founder of Life and Limb Printing:

We chatted with with Adam, founder of Life and Limb Printing ($80K/month). In our interview, Adam says:

I feel so grateful and excited to wake up knowing I can help others push through failures so they don’t make the same mistakes I did back in the day.

Additionally:

One thing that seems so obvious, yet one of the most difficult things to grasp is that you truly can’t pour from an empty cup. If you are in a bad place physically/mentally as a leader, then that is passed down to your team, your clients, and anyone you spend time with.

Further:

Systems = Success. Focus your energy early on building systems in your business.

#3: Adam Tanaka, founder of Life and Limb Printing:

We chatted with with Adam, founder of Life and Limb Printing ($80K/month). In our interview, Adam says:

From scrubbing those floors to working in their eCommerce department, I learned the inner workings of the production side of the business and knew I was ready to figure out how to launch my own company in merch.

Additionally:

If there was equipment or supplies I needed in order to function, I would work a part time or full-time job and save money. Once I had what I needed, I would pay cash for it.

Further:

Slow and steady wins the race. There is no race to be won in business, but there are goals, and rushing those goals could be detrimental to the well being of the business.
