EP 57: Adam Niec – Pushing Through Pain and Causing a Disruption

What sticks out to you when you think of an entrepreneur you look up to? Most of the legends we make an example of came to be where they are with a mix of toughness, persistent desire to learn, and a well-earned sense of when to step back.

He is steadily working towards instilling greater transparency, accountability, and a more positive image into the whole of processing. Adam is also a dedicated husband and father.

Favorite Quote:

“The ability to play with pain, I think, is a huge thing. Because we get – as business owners, we get kicked in the teeth all the time, right? Things happen, and you just learn to not let it affect you and just keep playing, keep moving on that. And then also the ability to, like, have a goal and achieve it.” – Adam Niec
