I had the pleasure of interviewing Chase McAnear, the chairman and CEO of Lux Properties (Real Estate), Californium Supply Co. (Apparel), Rocket Club Global (Advertising), and Mentor Me (Mentoring).

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Time. My father passed away when I was 10 years old and that is when I learned that time is limited and we can’t take it for granted. I will not waste it.

Can you share the most interesting thing that has happened to you since you started your company’s?

Honestly, it would have to be recognition. What comes with it is even more insane. Going places and people I’ve never met knowing me is such an unusual feeling for me to experience. It can be a good and a bad thing. Mostly, I have enjoyed it.

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

Jumping the gun when it comes to domain and logo purchases. I get so excited when I have a new idea that sometimes I get carried away and drop a few hundred dollars when I shouldn’t have. I’ve learned to be patient when it comes to business.

What do you think makes your companies stand out?

My companies stand out because of how transparent and generous they are. I create all my platforms to benefit my clients first, employees second and myself and other partners last. I do this to create a structure of longevity. I want all my businesses to last. In order to do so, I believe that this is a must. I will make up the original deficit by creating volume.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Selflessness, patience, and consistency. Have your idea, die for it, market it, and you will eventually thrive in it.
