The Cowboy Perspective

Feb 12, 2021

Welcome back Y'all! I got to record one of my favorite episodes on my 43rd birthday! My guest is Jason Beyer who is an entrepreneur, auctioneer, and friend! We also get some great Cowgirl Perspective from special guest Christie...his wife!

In our conversation, we talk about Jason's upbringing and how he learned to be an auctioneer riding along the highway with his dad. Jason hits hard on the importance of having a great network to rely on in life. We also talk about the struggles of building a successful business, learning from failure, getting through personal tragedies and a whole lot more. Enjoy!
