Jamie Hodari – Co-founder and CEO of Industrious

Be humble. I see a lot of entrepreneurs who think that the way to win is to project confidence at all times. What I have found
is that to succeed as an entrepreneur, you have to be relentless about being aware of your faults, how to hire to your blind spots.

Kathy Meis – Founder of Bublish

The big pain point in publishing is marketing. Anyone can publish a book, which means that 70,000 books are being
published every month. How are you going to stand out? The marketing begins in the manuscript and the positioning. Who are you speaking to?
