How To Turn Tragedy Into Triumph... with Cole Hatter
By Mike Dillard
When I started this interview with Cole, the plan was to talk about influence and events. You see, a few months ago, Cole managed to pull off one of the largest and most successful events of the year for entrepreneurs, with 450 attendees, and speakers like Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank, Gary Vaynerchuk, Lewis Howes, and Tai Lopez to name just a few. But what’s most interesting, is that he’d never held an event before. So clearly, there were some lessons to be learned here that we could all benefit from… From how to bring your vision to life, to how to connect with people of influence, to how to pull off an incredible event from scratch, for the very first time. So that subject matter was the plan, but once Cole started talking, all of that took a back seat as he began to share one of the most amazing stories you’ll ever hear. While we eventually discussed the strategies behind his event, this interview was really about clarity…. The clarity of purpose that comes from cheating death, not once, but twice. And then dealing with the physical, emotional, and mental challenges that come along with it. Once again, Cole serves as living proof that we don’t have control over what happens to us in life, but we do have control over the way we choose to handle it, and if we choose wisely, every challenge can lead to our greatest opportunity.
