The Behind the Scenes Olson Story - When Failure is Not an Option!

Today’s episode will inspire you to keep going in the midst of difficulty. Two of our coaches and directors of our program tell it like it is in business and what to do to keep going. Listen to the Olson’s behind the scenes back story! 

“Houston, we have a problem…” On April 13, 1970, Jack Swigert’s famous words marked a pivotal moment in the Apollo 13 mission, where an explosion turned a moon landing into a desperate fight for survival. The astronauts, with the ingenuity and determination of their ground team, used the Lunar Module as an improvised lifeboat, overcoming critical issues with limited resources. This story mirrors Brian Olson’s journey in the Amazon business world, where persistence and innovative problem-solving turned early failures into remarkable success. Inspired by his unwavering commitment, Brian emphasizes the importance of setting concrete goals and being ready to face challenges head-on. His journey underscores that, much like the Apollo 13 mission, achieving great success often requires tenacity, creative thinking, and an unyielding belief that failure is not an option.

Special guest at the conclusion of today’s show, Jeff Schick of answers the question: Why does my account health number drop sometimes even though I didn’t get any issues on my account
