In this episode, William Wang shares his experience of being the ‘black sheep’ in the family, known as the party-goer in his younger days and failing university multiple times.
Will is now the founder and CEO of Growth Labz, a 7-figure marketing agency, helping multiple B2B SaaS, Tech and FinTech companies grow exponentially.
It wasn’t an easy journey for Will though. He opens up about the early stages of the business, going close to broke - struggling to pay the mortgage, bills and experiencing a lack of support from his networks.
Will also shares with us the valuable lessons he learned along the way, naming a few of the mentors that helped to propel his business forward and also gives us insight into why he chooses to homeschool his kids.
