In a recent interview with Sarah Tourville on the Taking Flight: The Entrepreneurs Journey Podcast, Brandon Powell, CEO of Hatchworks, shared his journey as a lifelong learner and entrepreneur.
Over the past six years, Brandon has learned more than he ever thought possible. He attributes his success to two key decisions:
- First, he chose not to have a co-founder and despite the initial challenges, he now realizes it was the right choice.
- Second, he secured his first 1-3 customers before quitting his corporate job, ensuring he had a steady source of income for his business.
Brandon cites his mother as his biggest support system. Growing up as a single child, his mother instilled a strong work ethic and the drive to earn what he wanted.
Brandon is grateful for the support he receives from his Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Atlanta Forum, stating that 90% of being an entrepreneur is about mindset, work-life balance, and stability.
When asked about his favorite book, Brandon says “Making Big Happen” by Mark Moses.
