"Part of being creative or thinking about new ideas is having the space to put something out there. An idea that's messy and not very good, but all those ideas over time create big opportunities, right?

"What are the secrets to becoming a successful leader? It's really about three things. Learning - a lot of the really successful people that I coach read a lot of fiction, biographies to things about their industry, their verticals. Next - hard work, you have to work hard. The last thing is that people look at their careers from a serendipity perspective and that you don't need to have a five year plan. I'm a big believer in having a plan every three months, not this big grand plan, five year plan."
