To get to where he is today...
There are challenges that he had to overcome and failures he had to go through. But what’s entrepreneurship if not going against the odds thrown at you? According to Elliott, an example of micro shortcomings are the loss of opportunities along the way. Some things will just not work out the way you want them to. However, you must not give up. Keep going.
When he took on the decision to launch Highly Flammable in Wellington in 2012, he faced with the ordeal of running out of money as he had just lost approximately $30,000. It’s an incredibly heartbreaking situation to be in then. Some people would have delayed the launch but not Logan Elliott. He took the risk of launching through bootstrapping.
