70 comments

Imagine getting fired from a position that was about to write you a 150 million dollar check.

How would you feel knowing that one decision you made lost you all of that money?

Would you let it control you and be bitter for the rest of your life, or would you learn from it and make the most of the situation?

Our next guest on the School of Greatness did this a few times. First at Google, then at Facebook.  What he did next to build multiple million dollar companies may shock you.

Welcome to episode 66 with AppSumo Sensei Noah Kagan.
