In this episode of Doing the Opposite: Business Disruptors, Jeff Dewing speaks to John Mullins, Associate Professor of Management Practice in Marketing and Entrepreneurship at London Business School.
John shares much of his past experience in business, including the story of a shop he ran that sold fresh pasta. He reflects on the emotional impact of the failure of that business and the factors that led to its demise.
Later John pivoted into teaching and uses the lessons he learnt in business to inform his students and shares the knowledge he has acquired. John is now an award-winning teacher and scholar and one of the world’s foremost thought leaders in entrepreneurship,
Jeff and John discuss the merits of peer learning groups for entrepreneurs. You can not underestimate the value in a business coach, or sharing ideas with other like-minded individuals.
