When I was broke and living on my sister’s couch back in 2008, I was in love with a TV show called The Big Idea.
Do you remember it?
It was hosted by today’s guest on The School of Greatness, Donny Deutsch, and it was a huge inspiration to me early on as an aspiring entrepreneur.
So when I got the chance to interview the host for the podcast, I had to take it.
I loved meeting Donny and thanking him in person for his work that inspired me (and many others) in their entrepreneurial journeys before shows like Shark Tank existed.
Donny is a hugely successful advertising executive, author, and TV personality and we dive into all the parts of his career in this interview.
I was especially fascinated by how Donny views risk, challenge, and uncertainty and how he lets those fuel him.
Whether or not you agree with him, you’ll learn a lot from Donny Deutsch in Episode 326.
