In this installment of AskJZ, I asked Zimmerman Advertising founder Jordan Zimmerman to address his younger self.
If he could go back and offer the young Jordan some advice, what would it be? Entrepreneurs of all levels of experience can benefit from his sound guidance. Let’s just say --there’s no room for ego.
"One of the biggest mistakes I made was not understanding the value of hiring the right people, empowering those people, trusting those people, and realizing that everything doesn't have to come across my desk," he says. "You cannot micromanage anything and run a company this big."
