The Many Benefits of Getting Outside Your Comfort Zone

"If you love what you're doing, you're going to get phenomenal results. You're going to take calculated risks that the world will appreciate. And I really think being passionate, being studious, being humble are all ingredients for a successful career. And don't be ashamed or afraid to work hard."

Guest host Rob Langstaff speaks with his friend, former Nike executive, and sustainability expert Kirk Richardson.  You'd think a former President of adidas North America and a Bowerman Award winner (the Nike equivalent of an Oscar) might need a moderator to prevent Sneaker Wars II. Still, these guys respect one another and get along famously. They spoke about family, design, architecture, consumer insights, conservation, the outdoors, and much more.
