PP 356: Dr. James Kelley, Author of The Crucible’s Gift and Host of Executives After Hours Podcast
“Life is a series of subtle — and sometimes not subtle — mistakes and errors as you go along, and fortunately that’s where a lot of the biggest gains happen. It’s in those failures.”
James’ adult life has been filled with one failure after another, and we start this episode with a string of bloopers just to make an (unintentional) point! We chat about our mistakes, living abroad, our podcasting journeys, authentic conversations and more!
