take your ego and set it aside. you have to be willing to essentially look in the mirror and go, ‘you know, I’m not that good at’, whatever it is, because then you can fill in the gaps. i think the people who struggle are the people who aren’t self aware and think they are good at everything.

Welcome to the the 97th Floor Mastermind Interview Series where each week we sit down with one of the makers, thought leaders, and visionaries behind the biggest and/or up-and-coming brands around. We talk about everything from business and marketplace insights to personal journeys and successes, to failures and legacy.
