In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have an incredible guest, Nathan Foy who shares and talks a lot of cool stuff on the transportation business, the psychology of how he created an industry, his wins and losses, learning lessons in the entrepreneurial world, and building wealth, tactical strategy in business psychology, and how he created a balance in life
Nathan Foy is a man of faith, entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Fortis, a nine-time Inc. Magazine honoree, and one of America’s fastest-growing companies in business travel services. Also, offers a higher level of security to rich and wealthy people in the world through a secure communications system. He is also the author at What Rich Clients Want (but won’t tell you)
In providing travel services, Fortis always made sure the clients not just travel and gain personal experience but with security arrangements. They called themselves “ninjas” for most discerning travelers in the world.
At the back of this success are lots of failures and disappointments. It took 20-years of grinding for Nathan to reach where he is right now. But his passion drives him to pursue his business. Nathan has grown up as a leader and business owner. He feels like this is what he's calling.
In building Fortis as a huge organization, Nathan also builds a stronger and unique culture. He created an environment where people can build themselves to become something great. To him, asking and sharing successes, failures, and feedback will help everyone improve. Accordingly, a culture survey is very important. He believes that it’s not always ROI-based but solves a lot of problems!
