100 Interviews with 100 Location Independent Entrepreneurs That Have Over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue
Today listeners, we have a friend and another 7-figure location independent entrepreneur joining us from Austin, Texas. His name is Andres Zuleta and he is the founder of Boutique Japan, a high-end luxury travel service that creates amazing trips and experiences for travelers in Japan.
Today we dig into Andres’ experience starting two businesses that failed and then returning to the 9-5 life. Andres shares about the moment when he realized that he could no longer work for someone else, and made the leap to try his hand at entrepreneurship once again. He also shares the simple tactics he used, and continues to use, to grow Boutique Japan into the incredible business that it is today.
“You shouldn’t be looking for these innovative business ideas necessarily. A lot of times, the best business idea is actually transferring your own skills that you have already validated in the real world, and turning that into a business.” Andres Zuleta
