EP 95- Serial Entrepreneur and Servant Leader: Timeless Lessons and Wisdom of a Youthful Heart - Sammie Knight

Sammie Knight



A part of life is experiencing it.  The lessons.  The mistakes. The heartache.  The successes. The wins.  As we grow, we learn to control what we can and let go of the things that we can’t. After all, we’re not completely in control, even though we like to think so.  But here’s the beauty.  If we’re fortunate and wise enough to seek out counsel, friendship, and partnerships with those who have done more and seen more than we have, we’ll most likely find a friend for life.  Someone who will serve as a mentor, coach, and sage willing to share their journey filled with lessons and best practices to follow for the future.    

Sammie Knight is a Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, and Servant Leader who has held many positions in his life working in very corporate structures to solopreneurship, entrepreneurship and now as an investor.  


Today, Pedro and Sammie break open this episode bypassing the light, and fluffy you’ll find in most conversations.  Sammie dives into to sharing a great story about his father who had a lesson to share at a funeral he attended.  Sammie is very transparent in the way he shares some of his weaknesses as a younger man and being short-tempered.  He talks about the importance of curbing the urge to lash out at people, honoring the employees that commit their time and talents to building your company.  Sammie talks about the corporate world and the focal point of what “they” honor.  This episode is packed full of powerful wisdom, lessons learned, and experience earned.  Sammie shares a few tips you can take with you to help you for the rest of this life and leave a legacy that will help the next generation.
