As a kid, Vick Tipnes always knew that he wanted to be an entrepreneur, many hurdles came his way on his arduous journey to success, but the firebrand entrepreneur never gave up. His first ever hurdle in life was the fact that he had to acknowledge that he wasn’t great at selling anything at all, he realized that if he wanted to start a career in the business industry, he had to overcome that massive hurdle.
He started working as a car salesman to get a good grasp on salesmanship and improve his entrepreneurial skills. He gained a lot of valuable experience from his time as a car salesman and managed to boost up his confidence as well; this was looking to be a start of a fruitful career for Vick.
After gaining the right skill set and a set amount of knowledge, he then ventured on to establish his very own business. Yet another hurdle came his way when Vick struggled to turn a profit and had to sell the businesses that he started, it was evident that the problems were piling up on his end. It wasn’t until he turned 35 years old that he finally realized what he had to do in order to achieve his goals in life.
He needed to take action and strive for self-improvement; he equipped himself with even more knowledge and even more skills so that he could finally overcome all the different hurdles and whatever hurdles may come in the future. He sought improvement to future-proof himself of any and all challenges.
However, at the time, he had little or no money to his name, he didn’t even own a sofa, but he had something more important, he had belief in himself. He knew that if he made himself more able and had more knowledge, it would benefit everyone around him.
Despite all the hurdles that he had to overcome, Vick managed to grow his company into what it is today. Since then, his company Blackstone Medical Services, has grown into becoming one of the largest providers of Home Sleep Testing services in the USA.
