How to Turn Your Passion into a Successful Exit with Lee Blaylock

This week on The Exit. Lee Blaylock is a third-generation entrepreneur: both his grandfather and father were real estate entrepreneurs, so Lee was bound to become one. He just needed to find a compelling idea at the right time. When his father sadly passed away, Lee found himself focusing on his studies, and he discovered his love for software and tech. This led him to work for Dell for a very long time, before he finally got recruited to work on his true passion software at Oracle. Two years later, Lee quit Oracle to start his first business, ServiceLane, a directory for home-oriented service providers. Lee went on to exit ServiceLane after it was funded by some of the biggest names in the industry, and he exited numerous other businesses. With this many exits under his belt, Lee has some great advice and tips for whoever wants to turn a passion into a business. Tune in and grab pen and paper!
