Build to Exit with David Perez

This week on The Exit: “If you can’t make a sale, you have no business…but with sales comes rejection.”

David Perez is a seasoned entrepreneur who has sold two companies, generated millions from Fortune100 customers, and has served as an advisor for founders and businesses.

Through the rollercoaster ride of his business journey, one constant that he believes led to his success is in becoming comfortable with and energized by rejection.

From his first venture in 1999 building corporate websites to his medical documentation company, he discusses how he identified the opportunities that became his businesses, lessons learned when structuring his exit deals, and thoughts on characteristics to embody to succeed in business.

For the full details of his journey and the gems along the way, listen to the latest episode of the Exit.
