In this episode of Hidden Potential Podcast, Sarah welcomes Darius Mirshazadeh to talk all things expanding a business and how not to give up when you fail. Darius opens up about his past, his childhood, the origins of his mindset around money, and how it all affected his professional journey. Darius always wanted to run businesses, but he didn’t count on the struggles and hurdles.
Darius also discusses how fundamental it is for him and for the success of his companies to act and plan according to his core values – which are keywords, aspects of life that you follow, and let guide you. Core values are extremely important to the day-to-day of a business, working as a model when dealing with hard tasks and tough decisions. According to Darius, your core values will eventually hold you accountable for success.
“My belief is that core values have the opportunity to become the language of accountability in your organization, but you have to set it up right.” – Darius Mirshazadeh
