Ep 84 – Matt Alderton: Scaling your business – despite adversity

Jul 12, 2021

Winning over challenges in life and business

Have you got big aspirations for your business – but life continues to throw curveballs your way?

And just when things seem to look up – you get thrown down again?

Well, you have a choice.
You can either give up and set up camp in that deep, dark pit you’ve found yourself in.
Or you can keep your chin up, focus on the limitless starry sky above, and find ways to keep going.

On today’s show, I’m speaking with founder of Bx Networking, Matt Alderton, who has experienced lots of adversity in the past – during both recent times and in previous businesses. During our chat, Matt shares a very personal example of overcoming a major challenge in his life – yet continued to push on through and become the very successful entrepreneur he is today.

So if you’re struggling right now – but have big dreams – this episode is for you!

Let’s jump in.
