We end up in things that we're good at but not necessarily what our plan was for the future. That reflects the journey of Ken Traub, whose aptitude for tackling challenging concepts initially had his family pointing him into a medical career. Instead, his roundabout path led to business and entrepreneurship.
Today he's the founder of Delta Value Group, but getting there hasn't been a breeze. Microsoft crushing his Voiceover IP startup is just the start of the chaos Ken has experienced. From uncovering fraud at a 200-year-old company dedicated to preventing that very thing to righting the ship and winning back trust, he's not one to shy away from the storm.
In this episode, Ken and I talk candidly about learning from your mistakes. Hear what he considers to be one of his most significant strategic blunders and also what guides him through rough waters. If you are someone who likes righting the ship and driving more value, you'll find a kindred spirit in Ken.
