Episode 24: Trial and Error (featuring David Zablocki)
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
BloomBox founder David Zablocki talks about the ups and downs of starting your own business.
David has been on my list of people to interview since I started this project almost a year ago. Starting and running a business can be all-consuming, so when I was able to secure an hour of Dave's time, I was beyond excited and grateful.
I met Dave a decade ago now, as a senior in high school when I visited Lycoming College for a swimming recruiting trip. In school he was always the life of the party. But he was also constantly challenging the status quo and doing things others said could not be done.
Dave is an entrepreneur in every sense of the word.
During our conversation, I was blown away by his stories of the early days of BloomBox. I had no idea he had to overcome so much adversity to get to where he is today. He never let it show when he was down. He just kept on working. Dave will never be someone that let's life happen to him. He makes his own luck. Something I respect and something I think you will too.
