WOW WO WOW!  I'm a chiropractor, and learned so much from Marc.  I LOVED his take on business, life, and the ability to be honest about mistakes and challenges along the way.  The ability for others to be transparent and open to expressing their vulnerability is so important to me, and I admire Marc's story and journey.  Went right out and bought Unlabel, and ate it up.  Awesome episode!

Be open, "school comes to you". Do more, talk less. Talk isn't action. Be realistic in your goals. Make sure you are honest with yourself. Be authentic. Success comes at the end of a string of failures, be prepared to frame it as an iterative process. Fear is normal.

I like that he learned more from studying George Lucas than Calvin Klein. There are smart people everywhere doing things we can learn from.
