“My Team Is The Most Important Part Of My Life And Their Growth Is More Important Than Mine:” A TDQ Q&A With Entrepreneur Jared Goetz

Jared Goetz

Jared Goetz is a young and successful entrepreneur who wants to show you how you can be successful too. (He can’t do anything about your age. Yet.)

This week’s TDQ Q&A is with entrepreneur Jared Goetz. Jared spoke with us about his goals for helping others with his website, why he’s a fan of Mark Cuban and his advice for other would-be entrepreneurs. Here is this week’s TDQ Q&A with Jared Goetz:

The Daily Quarterly: What made you decide to become an entrepreneur?

Jared Goetz: : It came down to my upbringing. I wanted a lot and didn’t have it and knew I needed to get it. No matter what that meant— I knew I had to make massive impacts on the world in order to provide for the people I care about. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the unconditional and insane amount of love for my mother… my motivation levels would be drastically lower. That lady is my driving ‘why’.

TDQ: Who was your favorite entrepreneur growing up?

JG: Mark Cuban. He’s been involved with so many businesses, and just has a calm and collected confidence about him that I admire.

TDQ: What is the best advice you have ever gotten?

JG: “It’s only failure if you give up.” My baseball coach said this to me. And when he told us that, it wasn’t just about practicing a swing… it’s about life in general. And yes! I’ve had a lot of ‘learning mistakes,’ but never any failures!

TDQ: What is the worst advice you have ever gotten?

JG: “Stop spending so much time on something you don’t know how to do.” Let’s just say the person who gave me this advice is currently loving their accounting job… I couldn’t imagine that level of complacency. Learning is living and knowledge is power!

TDQ: Who are your influences?

JG: My girlfriend, mom, grandmother and a handful of people I’m blessed enough to consider best friends. The golf course also has a huge influence on me. Oh, and I can’t forget my dog, Nula. She’s a constant reminder to have fun!

TDQ: Tell us about your courses and programs on JaredGoetz.com

JG: We help people out with learning commerce like an expert. We want drop shipping and online businesses to be as trustworthy and professional as possible. By enabling others to work at the highest level… we can really change lives. The best part is building a profitable business like this is an evergreen skillset. The most rewarding part about helping people is the messages and videos I get thanking me for helping them out. The thing is though… none of this change would be happening without committed people ready for growth!

Here you might expect us to make a play on words and say something like “Jared Goetz…Whatever Jared wants Jared gets.” But we’re not going to do that. Instead we are going to quote poet lauriate Britney Spears:

“You want a Lamborghini? Sippin’ martinis?
Look hot in a bikini? You better work…”
-B. Spears

TDQ: You’ve been named one of the top entrepreneurs under 30… Does that just confirm how well what you’ve been doing has worked the past couple years, or is it more motivation to stay on top?

JG: It’s definitely humbling, but I really don’t like to compare myself to others, especially by age. I care about making the biggest difference— that’s all.

TDQ: What project or sector are you working on next?

JG: I’m working on a little something that I like to consider revolutionary. Something that I’m not quite ready to share just yet, but I’m so excited to share this project when the world is ready for it! Seriously hoping to change what we know about innovation and advancing society.

TDQ: What advice would you give young entrepreneurs trying to get something started?

JG: This is a super easy answer for a super easy question. Get started. The best advice I can give is to go do that thing you’re planning on doing… stop planning and just do it!

TDQ: Where do you see yourself in five years?

JG: I don’t like to think about where I see myself in 5 years as much as I like to think about where do I see the people I surround myself with being in 5 years. I want everyone to eat. My team is the most important part of my life and their growth is more important than mine… if they’re growing, I know I’m doing all right.

At the end of the day it isn’t about the money. It’s about taking care of the people (and dogs) you care about.

LeBron James “Really, Really Surprised” The Dallas Mavericks Actually Want To Play The NBA Finals

LeBron James

It has been said this artist's impression of a proposed LeBron James statue is not to scale as it should be twice the size.

Miami—LeBron James said he doesn’t really understand the motivation behind the Dallas Mavericks insisting they actually play the best-of-seven NBA Finals, which are scheduled to start May 31st.

“I mean, they all saw my special last year (‘The Decision’ an hour-long LeBron love-fest that aired on ESPN last July that culminated with James stating he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers and taking his talents to South Beach to play for the Miami Heat),” James said. “They know I decided to come here to win a title. And to do that, we had to outplay Boston. Well, we beat Boston in round 2. Why is Dallas doing this?”
