Creating Magic in Tough Times

This week's episode is a conversation I had with the great Lee Cockerell, former VP of Walt Disney World and a master of creating that Disney Magic.

Lee is one of our favorite people to learn from. I say “our”, because my company invested in The Cockerell Academy which has benefitted our entire team.

Lee teaches entrepreneurs and business leaders that you don't have to be Disney-Sized to make magic. Excellence, like so many other things, is a state of mind and learning that it is within reach will motivate you to be better.
