S3EP120 Episode Details

On today’s episode, we talk about how to turn setbacks into wins with Alison Levine: an adventurer, mountaineer, New York Times bestselling author, and public speaker. Alison leveraged her experience climbing seven summits and skiing to both poles into a successful speaking career. Yet, other people have also climbed the world’s highest summits, and, unlike her, they didn’t famously turn back within 100 yards of Mount Everest’s summit. She realized that it wasn’t her life-changing experience as much as her message—that complacency kills and fear can propel you in the right direction—that makes her have a referable speech.
