Brett Amerine,

Startup Junkie Foundation Co-Founder & Startup Junkie Consulting Managing Director

당신의 전문적/기업가적 여정에서 당신에게 가장 큰 영향을 준 사람은 누구입니까?

My dad, by far, Jeff Amerine. Growing up, he led multiple successful ventures that I got to see first-hand. He has a big heart, is extremely smart, and is a true leader. He is extremely humble, though, and doesn’t walk around giving speeches about his past business success. So, if you ever have time and want to learn about an entrepreneur who led multiple real, sustainable tech and consulting ventures that provided for their families, where the goal was not a 100x exit, but a viable and sustainable business, get to know him!

I also have to say my friend Calvin Smith. Also extremely humble, and he’s going places. He’s a young industrialist, if you will, and I’m lucky to get the opportunity to partner with him on various ventures. 


지금까지 당신의 가장 큰 성취는 무엇이라고 생각합니까?  

Marrying an absolutely beautiful and incredibly smart woman with a great personality, Beth, and having two phenomenal kids. Someday they will continue carrying the Amerine Enterprises flag, making the world a better place.


가장 큰 좌절이나 어려움은 어떻습니까? 그리고 어떻게 극복하셨나요? 

Being born with craniosynostosis, at a time where it required a life-threatening surgery and then having a massive Frankenstein scar all the way around my head from the surgery growing up as a kid. I always had a chip on my shoulder growing up because of this. I’m really thankful for it though. It’s made me bullet proof. 

I think so much of life is about how one responds to challenges or problems. Do you get soft and complain? Or do you try to stay positive, not make excuses and blame others, attack it, do your best, and plow forward? I try to do the latter.


만약 당신이 지금 알고 있는 것을 알고, 과거로 돌아가서 어린 시절의 자기 조언을 해줄 수 있다면 그것은 무엇일까요? 

Don’t say no, say yes. It’s become posh for younger people to complain about how they have to say no to all the many opportunities that come their way, so they can focus on planting tomatoes in their back yard, drinking lattes and watching Netflix. All the wildly truly successful entrepreneurs I know say yes, as much as possible, as life changing opportunities rarely seem to present themself with a nice bow…so keep saying yes, keep learning, keep moving forward.


가장 좋아하는 비즈니스 도구는 무엇입니까? 

Alarmed app. It’s a simple life changer.


무엇이 성공적인 기업가를 만드는가? 

Attitude, consistent effort, far above average persistence, and the willingness to be uncomfortable often.


누군가 자신의 사업을 시작하고 싶어합니다. 그들에게 추천하는 첫 번째 조언이나 첫 번째 단계는 무엇입니까? 

Find a pain point you can solve. Or identify a way you can provide an existing solution different and better. Before you start- do basic math to see if you can realistically solve the problem profitably. Then, get used to hearing no, listen to your customers and potential customers, and remember there is no substitute for hard work. 


귀하의 일반적인 근무일은 어떻습니까? 

I work all day from around 7am-11pm, wherever I have an internet connection. My day is fluid, and never wear my work on my sleeve. I also never check into the office like a standard 9-5, never, and never will. It’s totally inefficient in my opinion to try and constrain work into a set number of hours in a physical office. Not my style. 


무엇이 당신을 밤에 잠 못 이루게 하나요?

Thinking about new business opportunities, continuing to build the incredible Startup Junkie, Innovation Junkie, and Conductor brands (and many other ventures like ScaleSource) and ensuring the people working and living around me are happy.


어떻게 동기를 유지하나요?

I love living.
