I sat down with the Founder and CEO of Hire Wire to discuss his entrepreneurial journey. What he gave me was a wealth of information about what it takes to start a business and the amount of hard work that goes into it. Chau Nguyen started his first company when he was 25 and sold it for $17 million after 9 years of extreme hard work. Recently he started his new venture Hirewire.com and to date has raised $4 million in funding.
In this episode Chau provided some great advice and shared his experiences on what it took to build his companies and scale them. Make sure to listen to his Golden Nugget because I personally thought it was one of the best pieces of advice that an entrepreneur should get. We dive into his daily grind, talk about execution, and how Hire Wire is going to disrupt the hiring process!
