Along with other experts and leaders, Dr. Mattox spoke about the challenges new entrepreneurs face when launching their own businesses. “Today, more and more business leaders are leaving the corporate world to become entrepreneurs,” Dr. Mattox said. “Leaders must first identify their life’s passion, decide that going the entrepreneur route is really right for them, get over their fear, create a sound strategy, and then take what appears to be a leap of faith.”
