Brent Brookler’s entrepreneurial mindset itself is a thing of wonder. Brookler says he looks at all systems to see how they can be changed, improvised or updated, to find opportunities and ways to do things better and more efficiently. He poses the question: How will you make things quicker, easier and better than they’ve been done before? “You have to take risks to create and to stay out in front of the market,” he said. Combing creative risk-taking with hard work and dedication can move mountains.
