Episode 105 | Jeet Banerjee Shares How Having a Passion for Your Business can Lead to Success

Do you truly feel passionate about your business?

Jeet Banerjee is a 25 year old serial entrepreneur and TEDx speaker. He’s sold 2 businesses and launched over 10+ companies since he became an entrepreneur 8 years ago. In addition to that, he has spoken at conferences all around the world and has helped others start their entrepreneurial dreams.

Owning your own business can feel like a marriage. You’ll want to make sure that you’re truly in love, instead of falling for some trendy business, or something you don’t know anything about.

When I reflect on my time at FITzee Foods, I started a business that I knew nothing about! Anyone who knows me knows that I am very passionate about eating right - but I am NOT passionate about cooking. If I could, I would eat smoothies all the time.

Well, I found out that when I started FITzee Foods, I was starting a business in the food manufacturing industry, which I was not passionate about! Maybe that was part of what made it such a struggle: I didn’t focus on using my passion. Sure, I could probably teach a course on food manufacturing now, but it’s not something I am passionate about.

This week’s guest on the Success Unfiltered Podcast, Jeet Banerjee, heard his biggest NO when he tried to start a music business, and it failed. He learned how to turn his liabilities into some of his biggest drivers on his path to success, and follow his biggest dreams.

If you aren’t following your dreams (or think that you’re either too young or too old to follow your dreams), then this episode of Success Unfiltered is a MUST LISTEN!

Enjoy, and thank you for listening and tuning into Success Unfiltered!

Business Rejection: It’s NOT About YOU...BUT it Can Help You! Does a customer rejection mean you aren’t good at what you do? Not at all. Is there a gift in the sting of rejection? You bet there is! Click here and learn 3 reasons why a NO is actually a future YES (and how to start seeing it that way right NOW)!

Here are a few key secrets we talked about in this episode:

  • Michelle introduces Jeet Banerjee.
  • Jeet first started his business at the age of 17 - He was young with a baby face!
  • His first business client mistook him for a kid looking for his dad - so he turned and fled!
  • Everyone said “oh Jeet, you’re too young.”
  • This big rejection was a reality check, almost deterred him from entire career as a whole. But he thought, “I can’t let it end like this.”
  • Jeet turned his liability into an asset: “Yeah, I’m young…let me own it and show why I am a better candidate.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • One of the biggest things that I learned was that my confidence exudes into the world. If I believe it, other people will believe it.
  • Rejection is going to happen, but it’s really not that bad.
  • Jeet thought he had a multi-million dollar idea and always getting rejected was devastating and eye-opening at the same time.
  • Don’t focus on money or trendy industries; go after what you are passionate about and know a lot about.
  • If you don’t like what you do, you’re going to struggle with those extra hours.
  • Get a lot of data before you launch a business, run it past people who would use it. You may need to revise or improvise your business.
  • “Anytime I have a failure, I have a period of reflection so I am a little bit smarter and better.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • “I let the early successes get to my head, and learning that lesson so early helped.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • You’re going to have successes, and you’re going to have failures. You’ve got to learn from them.
  • “I’ve always been competitive: receiving NOs never bother me, but I can’t let the last thing that happens be a NO.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
  • The greatest idea in the world can fail if it doesn’t have the right person behind it.
  • 99% of people are not pursuing dreams, and cite three reasons: no time, no money, and are either too old or too young.
  • Jeet shares what he would tell his younger self.
