Here we sit down with RJ, to know a bit more about his journey as a coach.
Q. What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
RJ: I grew up working in my family’s businesses, then walked in your shoes as an entrepreneur. Fortunate enough to have been coached at a young age by my dad (Gene), who owned several different companies.
Q. How did you get started?
RJ: In high school, I had what is now called side hustles. One was selling ice cream sandwiches at the annual 4th of July parade. Another was to sell advertisements on phone book covers.
Q. What was your biggest startup challenge? What steps did you take to overcome it? What did you learn?
RJ: We started the bar (Scriba Town Inn) at the age of 22, I had no experience at all. I was though fortunate to have my father as my mentor and he knew the amount of freedom to allow without me failing. Our biggest challenge was the learning curve, which I jus fully engulfed myself into education on becoming a world-class operator.
Q. What is the Most Memorable Thing You’ve Done Since you Started your Business?
RJ: Having employees buy houses, pay off cars, get married, have kids, have grandkids, take amazing vacations and finally build long-standing relationships.

Q. In terms of legacy, what is the mark you’d like to leave on the world?
RJ: I am still figuring that out.
Q. In one sentence, what’s the best advice you’d give to someone just starting out on their entrepreneurial journey?
