I did a podcast interview with Stu Henrickson from the Asper School of Business a while back. Here are some of the highlights:

On Becoming an Entrepreneur

I get asked all the time, “Are entrepreneurs born or are they taught?” And I actually don’t think it’s either one...

On Building a Team

So if you’re a very strong marketing person, the last person you want on your team is another marketing person. They’re just gonna be either you’re yes man or they’re gonna be butting heads with you because they think they know more. I always tell people, you want to build your team like a puzzle.

On Mentors

Go out there and get advice from whoever you can. And the people that you are trusting, ask them for more advice. And the ones that where you are not seeing eye-to-eye on, listen to what they say. See if you can learn from it. But go with people that you feel comfortable with.
Listen to the rest of our conversation here.
