In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars talks with Matthew Gallagher, the founder of Watch Gang, to discuss some of the top lessons that contributed to his entrepreneurial journey. 

Gallagher defines an entrepreneur as someone who takes charge of his or her own destiny, or takes charge of the change he or she want to see. Gallagher likes how entrepreneurship helps him to extend a guiding hand to those in his hometown area of Houston. 

Gallagher also talks about how he would take more risks and to try your best to surround yourself with people whose advice you trust. He also brings up he could not have started his business without the help of a friend who trusted him and was willing to put money behind the company.
