Lloyed Lobo – Co-Founder of Boast and the Author of the Book From Grassroots to Greatness: 13 Rules to Build Iconic Brands with Community Led Growth
What drives most entrepreneurs is a burning anger or spite to prove
the naysayers wrong, to change the status quo, and to do things that
are different on their own terms. Happy people often don’t drive change.
