Career and Life Success Advice from the Chobani Founder and CEO

Hamdi Ulukaya founded Chobani in 2007.  It is one of the best known and successful Greek yogurt brands in the world.

Here are his three best pieces of life and career success advice.

  • Make your decisions in action, not from your chair.
  • If you start working your way, the way appears.
  • Create the best that’s ever been.  I’m a perfectionist.

I like the idea of working your way until the way appears.  You don’t have to have all of the answers to get started, but you have to get started to get all of the answers.  When I started my coaching and consulting business in 1988 the internet didn’t exist — at least as we know it today.  All of my work was done face to face on site.  Now I do 75 % of my work on line.

The important point here is that I have been continually working my way — and new opportunities, new ways of doing business keep appearing.  Just the other day, I received an email fro a guy in Australia who want to partner with me and deliver my content on line.  This wouldn’t have happened had I not taken that first step way back in 1988.

I agree with Hamdi Ulukaya, when you start working your way, the way will appear.  What do you need to get working on today?
