Perpetual Entrepreneurs are a different breed. They are constantly looking for innovation, vetting ideas, and searching for the next big idea. This is part 1 of a 4 part series on perpetual entrepreneurship where I share my perspective on how you can navigate the waters of perpetual entrepreneurship without getting lost at sea. 

The topic of this episode is centered around the great quote by Ken Blanchard, "Feedback is the Breakfast of Champions". 

 If you haven't checked out his books yet, I highly recommend doing so.
