The Pursuit of Success, with Jesse Garcia

Jesse Garcia is a highly resourceful and seasoned Co-Founder/CEO of Zipi, the new standard for real estate back office, accounting and payments. He’s also the founder of Jesse Garcia Real Estate, regarded for several years of progressive experience overseeing all aspects of business development and sales management to improve company-wide performance. He has most recently taken on a new role with PLACE, an innovative real estate platform that Jesse affectionately calls, “a unicorn company.” 

In Jesse’s free time, he loves traveling with his family, glamping, paddleboarding, biking, and relaxing in Hawaii and Cabo. He’s a fitness enthusiast and enjoys participating in Spartan Races— but is also a Star Wars / Marvel nerd and a die-hard SF 49ers Fan! 

What you will learn in this episode:

  • The mental commitment of pursuing success 
  • The rarity of “overnight successes” and the reality of most entrepreneurial journeys
  • Why it’s imperative to surround yourself with people who have already achieved success in your area of interest (and failed multiple times along the way)
  • The benefit of befriending failure in your own journey 
  • How you can shift your focus and learn to celebrate failures as part of your ultimate success
