Episode SIXTYNINE: The Birth of a Publicly Traded Company
Every company starts with a story. Usually that story revolves around a person and a problem they are out to solve. Today is no different. When I spent some time with Carvana CEO, Ernie Garcia a while back we saved a good portion of the interview to release after the initial segment.
To be honest, I think this is the better part.
This is where we talk about the human side of the publicly traded CVNA s founder. We talk about his perspective on why the car business is so tough and why dealers are being forced further into the struggle.
Ernie shares his philosophy behind how any good company should develop a new solution. We talk about the moment he knew that solution was really resonating with consumers. Finally, we get into what he want’s his legacy to be and why t-ball is the most exciting thing in his life at the moment.
Carvana has been in the news a lot lately regarding their business model and all the stresses and pressure of a publicly traded company are certainly heavy. Don’t we all have our stuff?? Whatever your opinion of Carvana, I hope this episode gets your wheels turning (no pun intended) on what you are doing and where you are heading.
