Episode 183: From The Military To Winning At Business, With Patch Baker

Roland Frasier and Patch Baker went from being strangers to business partners, and they break down that progression in this fascinating episode. You will be inspired and encouraged by Bakers’ story and mindset. 

Patch is a renowned investor and serial entrepreneur with multiple ventures and exits. As an expert marketer and thought leader, he impacts Fortune 500 clients to Veteran-owned start-ups, showing them how to lead with tenacity, discipline, and grit.

“I believe that businesses are lives, and you have the responsibility for the livelihoods of the people in your team. Sometimes people call them employees. I only do that on tax records”. Patch Baker 

If you don’t know how to ‘get in the room’ that you want to be in (with the smartest people in your industry), this episode will give you ideas, confidence, and insight into how top-notch business minds work. 

“You can’t luck into everything. Most of the time, you pay to open doors. And try not to say something stupid when you’re in the room. Get them to know, like, and trust you, just like you would any other customer. Right? And then hopefully you find some common ground where you can meet in the middle, and it’s beneficial to both of you”. Patch Baker

  • Patch’s Winning MINDSET.

All of my businesses are built on what I learned in the military. So I’m not even trying to win every battle. I’m just trying to win every war that I have, and that war can be hour to hour. It can be day to day. It could be month to month, quarter to quarter, year to year, it doesn’t matter. I just want to win. Winning doesn’t necessarily mean more money. It doesn’t necessarily mean more impact or more people in my network. It can be as simple as just being better tomorrow at something than I am today by a fraction of a percent”. Patch Baker.

“Your time is the most precious thing you have, and it’s very easy to give it away, especially when you want to help people. We all want other people to succeed, but because time is limited, you have to guard it.” Roland Frasier

  • How to ensure the people you’re helping have the commitment to warrant your time.

Charging a consulting fee “is going to screen out a lot of people who have not got the commitment or resourcefulness or dedication or belief to invest in themselves enough to do it”. Roland Frasier
