Move the Chains
In starting her second business, Nellie Akalp quickly discovered that just because she was wildly successful with her first business didn’t guarantee her second business would automatically succeed. Developing the right mindset around building a new business gave her the edge during the challenging times. She says, “Like football, or any sport, you have to have flexibility.”
Nellie sold her company at the age of 31 for $20,000,000! She then had the tenacity to start again from ground zero. Running a business is like playing a game, and it’s about winning. It’s clear after hearing Nellie Akalp tell her story that she is definitely in it to win it again!
