Josh Verne and His Secrets to Success

Josh Verne recently appeared on the Knowledge For Men podcast with some advice. An entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in starting, growing, and leading businesses, Verne is currently the CEO of Flocku.com, which he launched in February 2016. Flocku is a Pennsylvania-based mobile peer-to-peer exchange designed for college students; essentially, it is a platform for college students to speak directly to their peers on a whole range of issues. Verne employs over 400 college students who call themselves Flockers who write about anything and everything. Verne decided to start FlockU after noticing that there was a need for a platform that targeted the demographic of nearly 17-20 million people and gave them a voice. Since launching earlier this year, FlockU has partnered with The Huffington Post with 3.8 million monthly impressions and 35 percent click-thru rate.

 

A self-proclaimed underdog, Verne did not follow the traditional path and go to college after high school; rather, he was always entrepreneurial in nature and had his first business at nine years old. Since then, he has achieved a lot of success; an experienced businessman and entrepreneur, Josh Verne previously founded work pays.me, an online marketplace that deducts purchases from your work payroll, which was successfully sold to Global Analytics Holding in 2014. Before that, Verne had a long-running furniture business with a partner that they sold in 2011. Having trained thousands of employees over his lifetime, Verne spoke with Knowledge For Men with sound advice for young and budding entrepreneurs.

 

First, he mentioned the importance of being a leader and not a boss. Unlike someone that takes advantage of the title to get people to do work or earn respect, it is more important to respect people first and set a good example to work together on achieving a common goal. The second piece of advice he gave was to think win-win. The win-win mindset allowed him to continue to reach for the stars no matter how bleak the situation looked. By thinking win-win, Verne was able to keep moving forward, even if there were some falls along the way. If failures do happen, as it has for Verne on a few occasions, he emphasized having a system in place to evaluate why the failure occurred and how to fix it so that it will not happen the next time.

 

Josh Verne also emphasized the importance of listening. The less you speak, the more authoritative you will appear, and people will want to hear you voice your opinions. He also mentioned having a balance in life. While having a successful business is important and is the goal, maintaining good health and a personal life are just as important. Balance is about making progress in all aspects of life, not just in business. Finally, Verne concluded by saying that if you want to be successful, you have to find a passion. Take time to figure out what it is that ignites you and will wake you up in the morning ready to get to work. Finding that passion and inspiration are important in allowing you to continue on a journey, whether it may be a few years or several years.
