Today on the show Jayson is talking with John LeBlanc about listening to the voice inside your head and making yourself uncomfortable at times to help build yourself up, and move forward in life. You might end up failing in some endeavors, but you would be failing forward!

John wasn’t 100% positive about joining the Powerhome team, but the voice inside his head kept getting louder and louder, to the point where he couldn’t ignore anymore. He decided to go with his gut and take a chance, leaving behind everything he had built before this opportunity, and he took it. Now he’s moving up the company ladder and feeling more fulfilled then ever.

Today on the show Jayson is talking with Ajay Prakash and James Joun, co-founders of Rinse, a laundry and dry-cleaning app started in 2013. Ajay was COO and CFO of Humble Brands, a consumer product startup. He also had experience at Bonobos, Berkshire Partners, the NBA and Bain & Company. James was a health care investor at Essex Woodlands, a product manager at Genentech, and a consultant with Monitor Group.

The company, founded by Ajay Prakash and James Joun, is headquartered in San Francisco. Rinse is a portfolio company of Green D Ventures and Yard Ventures. Rinse started serving customers in 2013, but it was actually 30 years ago when the story really started. Joun’s parents have owned a dry cleaning storefront for more than three decades, and for years he’d been wondering how to increase sales in a particularly static industry. Ajay Prakash, befriended Joun at Dartmouth university. James Joun has degrees from Dartmouth and Harvard Business School. Joun was schooled in operations, such as running contraptions like the topper, which presses pant tops, and in the finer points of separating dirt and stains from all manner of fabrics. Joun now competes against the people who brought him into the business who also happen to be his parents.

Today on the show Jayson talks about how you need to try and improve yourself by as small as 1% every single day, it’s like grass growing, you don’t notice it growing, but a week from now it needs to be cut! Improving yourself by 1% every day, that means you’ll have improved 365% in a year!!

Challenge yourself to things with which you’re uncomfortable, that’s the only real way to make improvements. If it was easy then everyone would be successful and the best versions of themselves, but it’s not. Try and set yourself a schedule for things you know you need to improve, that will help keep you accountable, and keep you on track to prove to yourself that you can do it.

Show yourself and show the haters in your life that you can do the hard stuff, that you can improve Every. Single. Day.
