Find Your Edge in Excellence
The latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire Podcast is now online!
“I have more interesting conversations with 17-year-olds than I do with a lot of 45-year-olds. They are connected, they know what’s going on. The fact that they can develop themselves, and be part of a team, or deliver and communicate, or understand what a leader can be and that there are different attributes to leadership and that they can lead in different ways; I just think these kids are going to change the world.”
