Real Talk with a Real Entrepreneur: Jacob Stahler

Season #2 Episode #91

What does it take to succeed in business? 

Why am I not further along in my career as I want to be?

Entrepreneurship is too difficult, I’m ready to throw in the towel.


If any of these questions or thoughts have crossed your mind, today’s episode will be especially helpful. Matt’s flying solo, and he’s sitting down with friend and fellow Apex member Jacob Stahler.

From starting and dropping out of college 3x, Jacob is a prime example of what can be achieved through hard work, tenacity, determination, and a refusal to take no for an answer. If he doesn’t know how to do something - he figures it out. And that attitude is what makes him a dynamo in the business world. 

Less an interview and more a conversation between two friends who have walked down similar paths, Matt and Jacob share some insights into their own journeys. They talk marriage, being wrong, the struggles that high-performing individuals sometimes face, having thick skin, maintaining a mindset of success, finding balance, and what gives them the confidence to bet on themselves. 

This is only part one: Jacob will be back on the show again, and we’ll get a bit more technical; but for now, enjoy this no-filtered, no-B.S. reflection on entrepreneurship, business ownership, and being the best version of yourself.
