Episode 048: Cameron Herold – Why You Should Teach Your Child To Be An Entrepreneur

This episode was absolutely packed full of action oriented takeaways to help us all improve in each of our environments. I love the strategy Cameron has employed to teach children to be entrepreneurs as well as his strategies to grow a number of businesses…

Cameron Herold has been instrumental in the successful sale, branding, and integration of a remarkable 500 business locations with three major companies.  He may be best known as a driving force behind 1-800-GOT JUNK’s spectacular growth from $2 Million to $106 Million in revenue in just six years.

His wide range of executive roles has given him expertise across all aspects of business, from strategic planning, operations, people, sales, marketing, call centers and PR. Combined with hands-on experience negotiating corporate acquisitions and developing numerous strategic partnerships, there are few real-world business challenges he hasn’t faced.

Now, as the author of “Double Double”, Cameron mentors a select class of proven CEOs, entrepreneurs and their teams, helping them navigate growth, leadership, and building their own unique company cultures. He reaches an even broader audience through his content-driven presentations to groups of entrepreneurs, speaking in over twenty countries, on five continents, in just five years. Cameron is a top-rated lecturer at the EO/MIT Entrepreneurial Masters Program and a powerful and effective speaker at EO/YPO & Vistage events around the world. Additionally, he landed over 5,000 media placements in six years – including coverage on Oprah, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine, Fast Company, Fortune and 17 spots on Dr. Phil.
