Relationships are made and broken on the values of the people in those relationships.
For some, a simple misunderstanding can break a weak bond. Whereas if you know people at a deeper level, then you know who they really are and what they’re about. That kind of relationship can pay dividends in the long run.
I know for me, I’ve always had a close group of friends – and then there was everyone else. It wasn’t just “treat everyone the same”. No, I’ve always had my inner group because those were the folks that would understand me the most at that point and if I ever needed help, it’d be available – and visa versa.
If you don’t have that inner group when it comes to business, then you’re essentially working for yourself by yourself.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Today’s guest, Sean Webster, is what I would call a catalyst for craft brewers in Indiana.
Having started his business in 2016, he’s been making a pretty big strides in his business simply because he understands where his clients are coming from. He understands their stories and why they make the product they do.
While Sean applies his skillset to the brewing industry, I think it’s important to realize it should be applied anywhere.
In this session, Albert and I ask Sean about this skillset of his and how he’s been able to build his business around it. How he identifies as someone that really knows the art of creating good brews, how his business actually functions, and how his core values fit into his daily routine.
Success looks different to different people. You might not know that if your career only involved formal education and getting a job upon graduation. In fact, if you’ve gone that traditional route, you might believe that those who have the most money or the most fame might be considered the most successful.
I believe that this model simply doesn’t fit in today’s new world. Sure, I might say that a majority of people still believe that to be considered successful, it just happens to you – but I and many other creators would say that success comes with achieving what you set out to do – whatever that might look like.
If you like craft brews, good ideas, and collaboration, then you’ll like hearing from Sean!
