In today’s episode, I talk to Jim McIngvale, aka. Mattress Mack. You may actually have heard of this guy. Mack made a $9.5 million bet on the Cincinnati Bengals during the Super Bowl — he lost. You might think he has a crazy gambling problem. But actually, these are very creative marketing campaigns to promote his furniture store.
This is a man that came from humble beginnings. He started a furniture business in 1981 with just $5,000 dollars, and now it’s a HUGE business making $200 million dollars a year in revenue — he also gives a ton of it away to the people of Houston. I have so much respect for this guy.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about persistence and turning setbacks into comebacks, then you’ll love this episode.
In this episode, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG lessons:
- Why tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
- The reason why relationships are the currency of life.
- Get up, go to work and make something of yourself.
