114 From Dream to Success - Dave Nelsen
How do you take a dream and make it a reality. How do you start a company with knowledge and no money and create one of the best companies in Pennsylvania?
Today I’m talking with serial entrepreneur and award-winning speaker, Dave Nelson. We’re going to be exploring a company that Dave started back in 1998 and eventually ended up selling. When I asked Dave what employee engagement means to him, he said, “People passionately pursuing something they believe in while learning from each other, making themselves more valuable professionally (at the company and in their future careers).” You’ll learn how Dave put these words into practice at his company and how you can do it as well.
