🎙️Podcast #4: On Building Resilience and Learning How to Fail

The Growth Leadership Show - Ep#4

Happy Friday You Maverick!

I’m back with another podcast episode of The Growth Leadership Show.

This week we have Ben Harmanus behind the mic. 🎙️

He’s the Head of Brand Marketing for HubSpot in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Now, Ben has a bit of a unique marketing career trajectory, because he started out as a professional rollerblader. 🤘

In the episode he tells us all about how we can apply lessons and principles from the extreme sports world to business and leadership.

One of my favorite quotes from the episode:

“One of my biggest advantages today is: I learned how to fall. Because there isn't a day in rollerblading that you're not trying a new trick, so you fall way more than you succeed. In fact you fall hundreds of times every day. I can tell you, I got pretty good at falling. But you just get back up and try again. And so now for me this is just part of the job.”

He is down to earth, truly cares about people and his terrific attitude will rub off on you while listening.

👏 👏 Now give it away for…
