The most meaningful lessons we can learn as entrepreneurs and small business owners are from the experience of entrepreneurs that came before us. These people set the bar for us and give us hope that we can overcome the perceived hurdles that lay before us. In this edition of Entrepreneur Close-Up, I interview René Banglesdorf. She is an excellent example for those seeking the entrepreneur track and seeking guidance and insight into what it’s like to be and become an entrepreneur.
René is the founder and CEO of The Aviation Collective, a collaborative consulting company that equips leaders in aviation with tools to revitalize their organizations. Through her workshops and individual mentorship programs, she strives to strengthen the workplace’s overall profitability, safety, productivity and engagement with unique tools made for teams and individuals. In addition, The Aviation Collective improves workplace culture today to transform the impact of the industry tomorrow.
Previously, René was the CEO & Founder of Charlie Bravo Aviation, which brokered close to one billion in private aircraft transactions. She is also deeply involved in mobilizing resources and private and public partnerships in response to crises and disasters with the Sky Hope Disaster Relief Network.
In this interview, we will learn more about how René became an entrepreneur and valuable insights, including:
How taking small risks can turn into seismic opportunities for your career
Failures are inevitable, but facing them can change them into valuable lessons
Managing a business on the brink of failure
Conquering Imposter Syndrome
Everyone has an interesting story about how they became an entrepreneur. We invite you to come hear René’s.
