3 Things (with Ric Elias)

Education Podcasts >

I’m Ric Elias, one of the luckiest people you’ll ever meet. I was lucky enough to survive a plane crash - and to share on the TED stage 3 things I learned from that experience. I was lucky to grow up in Puerto Rico - and end up building a multi billion dollar global company. And Ive also been lucky to collect a remarkable group of friends. As a lifelong learner, I’m always focused on learning from every conversation and experience. This season, I’ll share conversations with world-class CEOs, hall of fame athletes, a Nobel Prize winner, and even a Hindu priest. Just like I did on the TED stage, I’ll summarize each conversation with the three things we can all take away from these remarkable people.
