Ep. 002 – Paul Hauk on how the importance of taking responsibility, handling losses in business and the most important lesson is sales.

Paul grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan where the entrepreneurial lifestyle was introduced to him at a young age. Like every good Canadian, Paul had originally decided that he was going to grow up to be an accountant and an NHL player at the same time! It wasn’t long after that Paul decided that perhaps that wasn’t what he was best suited towards and ended up starting his own business in 1999.

“There’s working in your business and there’s working on your business” – Paul Hauk

After a chance meeting at a Starbucks years ago, we were recently able to reconnect with Paul Hauk (Facebook) and sit down over a cup of coffee to ask him some questions.

Paul grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan where the entrepreneurial lifestyle was introduced to him at a young age. Like every good Canadian, Paul had originally decided that he was going to grow up to be an accountant and an NHL player at the same time! It wasn’t long after that Paul decided that perhaps that wasn’t what he was best suited towards and ended up starting his own business in 1999.

The Benefits Specialist Corporation, and BeneCo, a division of the company, is a family based business, focused towards providing employee benefits that Paul runs with the help of his wife Ann. However, despite his success as a broker, Paul had much more to offer us during our too brief discussion.

Topics Discussed Include:

  • What would you say if you had to write your own eulogy?
  • How do you help people overcome their weaknesses?
  • What routines help you start your day off well?

From starting off in door to door sales to now establishing his own profitable organization, Paul shared with us his journey and the struggles he had to overcome to achieve his success. Some of the key influences in his life have been Michael GerberZig Ziglar, Wayne Dyer and Brene Brown.
