#4 Marshall Mosher: tough product calls & acclimating to fear

Marshall Mosher is the cofounder and CEO of Vestigo, a company that uses outdoor adventure experiences to help people push outside their comfort zones, get comfortable being uncomfortable, and build deep trust with their teammates.

Marshall caught the entrepreneurial bug at the tail end of his masters program, and hasn't looked back since. After graduating from the University of Georgia, Marshall spent time at the Singularity University Global Solutions Program Fellowship at NASA Ames and has been on the path of empowering human experience through technology since then.

This is such a fun conversation and I can't wait for you to listen to it. We cover soo much ground. We talk about how to make product pivots and how to face down the emotions involved in walking away from a major product investment. We talk about self-identity, and how it affects our ability to pivot and learn and grow.

We spend time talking about how to cultivate trusting teams and create experiences where people deeply connect with each other, and how you can bring that to the people in your life.

Always focused on learning pushing outside his comfort zone, Marshall also shares with us what it feels like to actually fly around in an Iron Man jet suit! Enjoy.
