Volume 05. David Meltzer: Dare to Fail

Failure, the one word no entrepreneur wants to hear. While so many of us fear failure, the hidden value we can gain from our mistakes can add to our personal and business evolution.

Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome. 

If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional, this podcast is for you.

In this volume, Ronsley speaks with the man who dares to fail, David Meltzer. David is a licensed attorney who ventured into the world of business instead of practising law.  

David understands the emotive and practical components related to entrepreneurship, he’s tasted extreme success and the crushing blow of bankruptcy. Now, he’s the renowned CEO of Sports 1 Marketing but formerly served as CEO at the Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency – which incidentally inspired the movie, Jerry Maguire.

A three-time international best-selling author, keynote speaker, technology pioneer, podcast host, multi-award winner and family man, David has built his extraordinary life by meshing spirituality with business, along with four overarching principles—gratitude, empathy, accountability, and effective communication.

Ronsley and David go on a pursuit for happiness within life and business. The discussion gets to the heart of why failure is essential in your development and the struggle behind finding your authentic self when you are shrouded by imposter syndrome.
