I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Luke Lintz about five random facts about himself, what advice would he give to his younger self . Plus his biggest accomplishment to date. Check out my interview with Luke Lintz below:
Loryn: What advice would you give those interested in starting a business with a family member?
Luke: I would make sure that you and the family member that you are working with are 100% on the same page with one another on every aspect of the business. This means having the same goals in mind, motivation for the project, relatively similar time commitment, etc .I would say that the 2nd most important aspect would be to have consistent and steady communication. Most business relationships fail because of a lack of communication. Communicate about everything when starting a business and growing. When I started my first business with my brother and good friend we would go on a brainstorming walk every single night to give each other a quick recap of the day and toss around ideas for expansion and growth. These daily check-ups were one thing that kept us all on the same track and really helped us succeed in the long run because as we brainstormed far fetched goals seemed very realistic.
Loryn: What is a lesson you've learned from your failures?
Luke: The biggest lesson that I learned is that your failures in business are an Entrepreneurs tuition into the business world. Every single person should realize that failures are not only inevitable but essential for business growth. Putting yourself in uncomfortable situations and working on untapped markets can be the most lucrative parts of the business, but you can only get to those points if you fully accept failure. The only time failing is bad is when you make the same mistake twice. The same mistake should never be made because that means your first tuition payment was useless as you didn't retain any of the knowledge.
Loryn: What do you consider as your biggest accomplishment to date?
Luke: My biggest accomplishment to date was setting up a giveaway campaign with Kevin Hart at the end of June 2020. We ran a $20K giveaway with our company HighKey Clout and found a connection to Kevin Hart for the promotion. Kevin has always been an idol to me because he's most known for being a comedian but is actually a very educated businessman. I finally felt a real milestone of major "success" in my own mind when we were able to partner up with the legend Kevin.
Loryn: What advice would you give your younger self?
Luke: I am fairly young right now at the age of 20, but if I could go back to when I started my first business in 2016, I would tell myself to set more goals. Setting goals is the most valuable asset that any human being can have because of the powers of manifestation. I didn't get into setting a large number of goals until 2 years ago and that is when my mission, purpose, and motivation took a huge leap. I now set daily, weekly, 90 day, 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years and 25-year goals and revisit them consistently to make sure they all align. When you are able to set aside all other distractions to reverse engineer a 25-year plan there is nothing in the world that is more powerful and nothing in the world that will give you more long term value.
Loryn: What is something not many people know about you?
Luke: My biggest goal is to set records for the amount of money that me and our team giveaway. I am determined to find as many giveaway business models as possible so that we can justify giving away money constantly to our fan base and to people around the world. I have a goal to give away a total of $1 million in the next 2 years. And I want to get to the point of giving away $100K a week.
