When I’m really excited about a movie that’s coming out, I do my best to stay away from knowing much about it. I like to go in cold.

For me, it provides for a much more…

Many of us want to be known by what we do and that…
 
It’s always great to find someone who’s sincere and down to Earth. I’m talking about the kind of person who doesn’t steal the energy from a room or a group of people. A giver of energy, even.

There are few things in my experience as a business owner and entrepreneur that have been more of a mixed bag than employees.

We talk about it a bit in this episode, but I knew I had to speak with Scott Robert Lim the second I saw his Facebook post about his Dad’s shoes.
