The Mindset to Change Your Life’s Direction, w/ John Brontsema

My whole life was dedicated to baseball from an early time. People say, “Don’t put your identity,” or “You’re not a baseball player. That’s not your identity.” It really is though. While it’s not, it feels like it, because every decision I made, everything I was passionate about was baseball and achieving the next level.

On episode 89 of The SKYLER IRVINE Show, Cody Alt joined us to talk about building businesses from the ground up. 

Cody moved here about eight years ago from a small town in Montana. He enjoys Steak 44 here in Phoenix and loves to spend time outdoors being as active as possible and golfing. Cody gives credit to his dad for making him the man he is today. 

When asked what the most memorable mistake he has made within his business is, Cody said, “trying to do too many things at once by myself. There is nothing wrong with trying to learn new things, master your craft, and get better at things, and broaden your horizons. However, when you have multiple companies, you can move so much further way faster with a group of individuals. Hiring out people that are great at that specific task will your success in a time machine.”

On the show, Cody and Skyler discuss Cody’s journey with his businesses. They talk about being willing to adapt fast and learning from mistakes. They also speak about what drives Cody to continue pushing and where he would be if he didn’t take the path he did to get where he is today.

Cody advises people pursuing entrepreneurship to be careful who you take advice from. If you listen to your parents and they have never done what you want to do, they are probably not the best people to listen to. You want to listen to someone who has been where and done that.
