Any conversation with an entrepreneur should start out discussing habits. Habits are the things we do that make us successful and they are the traits that most define us. For Bruce Bent II there is no habit more defining than his consistent refusal to back down. Bent II admits that he hates to hear someone tell him no and that when he is rejected in business he immediately begins to look for an alternate path to his ultimate goal. Bent II jokes that it could be a character flaw but he also admits that he has seen this same trait in many of the most successful entrepreneurs around.
It’s hard to imagine Bruce Bent II doing anything different in business due to how successful Double Rock Corporation has become, but he still has advice to his younger self: diversify early on.

You never know which business is going to hit, so having many of them on your plate is a perfect way to set yourself up for success.
Through it all the most recurring theme with Bruce Bent II seems to be his complete commitment to working and operating as a team. Bent II knows that, ultimately, you can’t find true success unless you put smart and talented people around you while you pursue your goals.
