Humbling Insight: Over training ended his professional athletic career. Ambition drove him to Wall Street. Desire, to win fast, sucked him into tech. He made money, lost money, and built character. He came to realize having a boss and being an employee had limitations. A mentor taught him how being your own boss was like being an athlete in business. At that point, he knew what he wanted, however, his blind spots humbled him, in great ways.
