He faced many challenges when he was young, as he was not taken seriously due to his age. Many didn’t believe Todd was running his own business.
There was a time when he started his business people used to inquire a lot about his work and company. Very few trusted him in the starting, but slowly people believe in his work and his products.
He has worked hard to prove his mettle; Todd knows no one is perfect, and everyone makes mistakes in life. But who learns from mistakes makes it significant in life.
Work smart with limited Capital: Todd started with a small business from his own savings. Even today he is spending his own money in PupSocks. The good thing about Todd is that he never invests total saving in projects. We wait and invest with proper planning step by step, which is helping him save his money and finance at the right time.
Transpiring Relatable to your buddies: Some it will happen that your friends and Colleagues will not get your point. The same can happen to them; you might not understand their point of view.
Still, it is necessary to have a close connection with your close ones; it helps you faster if you have the right people around you. Todd is lucky to have a lovely group of friends who motivates him in every decision he takes in life. Todd is able to separate his personal and professional life amazingly.
