In business, success is often measured by the ability to beat the competition. However, to really achieve lasting success and make a difference in the world, you must work with, not against, other people. In this episode, Brian interviews former NBA star Walter Bond about his impactful new book, “Swim!: How a Shark, a Suckerfish and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentorship and Next Level Success.” Walter explains why we should apply the principles of collaboration used by sharks in the ocean to connect with and learn from others in order to really succeed.
YOU WILL LEARN:
- The Sacred Six lessons of the shark.
- How to build a network of helpers and avoid parasites.
- Why your mistakes do not define you and how you can keep moving forward.
You will also hear the two gentlemen reminisce about when Walter was a guest speaker at the Buffini & Company MasterMind Summit. This event is designed to inspire, motivate and help unlock the best version of you. Catch Brian live and hear from more dynamic speakers at MasterMind Summit 2020, August 2 – 4 in San Diego.
