In this latest episode of season 4 Leaders Create Leaders, Entrepreneur Network partner Gerard Adams sits down with Ed Mylett to talk about his journey from going from living without water to making it on social media and racking up millions.  

Mylett goes on to explain that drawing your motivation from proving certain people wrong is not the best way to go. Those people who are obsessed with what other people think about them never reach their full potential or may not make an impact that will be remembered. In terms of his childhood experiences, Mylett talks about living with a family that is dysfunctional and spread lots of anxiety when he was younger. 

The two dive deeper into other discussion revolving around social media, such as combatting the symptons of anxiety, depression and loneliness, despite the happy image the platforms may present. Adams and Mylett continue to connect throughout the interview, diving into other important figures in their life and some of the guiding principles that move them to achieve.
