The Apprentice All-Time Champion Mark Wright On The Success Formula and The Dark Side of Fame
With The Apprentice in flow what better time to reintroduce this epic conversation with 2014 winner Mark Wright.
We live in an era of reality where everyone wants to be famous for the sake of being famous, however, that was far from the case with Mark. When he applied for the apprentice he meant business!
His relentless commitment to mastery ensured that he won not only the £250k prize money to launch his business but more importantly, a business partnership with Lord Sugar who has become a close friend and mentor to Mark over the years.
Lord Sugar has a ruthless reputation, and in this episode, we get the low-down on what he's really like to work with when the cameras aren't rolling and it might just surprise you.
Now a multimillionaire who has shared the stage with and a private jet with Grant Cardone, Mark is an example of someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to succeed as he gives us his unfiltered opinion on why the vast majority of entrepreneurs fail.
Lots of powerful lessons around mindset and business in this unmissable episode🔥
- It's all about finding the formula that will lead you to a winning result. Follow the blueprints of what others have done - the recipe they followed - and you can expect better odds when it comes to to your turn.
- The key to success is knowledge. If you're struggling to attain prosperity, then it's because there's a question you haven't yet answered for yourself.
- Business acumen and experience comes swiftly through association with the right kind of people. If you can surround yourself by champions in their field, you quickly absorb their ways of dealing.
- Being famous for the sake of being famous is a road to ruin. You have to have more to you than a simple presence. You need to be able to back yourself up with a unique offering, otherwise your moment in the sun will quickly fade

'I've never had a problem being tough'
'I'm content with what I had, but I'm not chasing that. I'm chasing success in my craft, which is business'
