From Navy Officer, Energy Trader to Entrepreneur: Craig Taylor Leads Iapetus Holdings
Houston – November 18, 2022 – If you were one of those kids who didn’t know what you wanted to be when you grew up, you may be able to relate. As Iapetus Holdings CEO and Founder Craig Taylor explains in this episode of the Texas Business Minds Podcast, his career has followed a nonlinear path. From humble beginnings to Navy officer to energy trader to entrepreneur, his story is one worth listening to.
Craig highly recommends reaching out to people in the line of business you are interested in pursuing to learn more about what that career path looks like.
In this interview with Houston Business Journal’s Jonathan Adams, Craig goes into the challenges around entrepreneurship. Beyond raising capital, Craig explains why building a brand and attracting talent are so important. In Craig’s words, raising money is not the hardest step. Leading a company and leading people can also be challenging. This requires a certain amount of personal insight. Understanding the effect you have on others is important.
