Guy Raz is the host, co-creator, and editorial director of three NPR programs, including two of its most popular ones: TED Radio Hour and How I Built This. Both shows are heard by more than 14 million people each month around the world. How I Built This is a podcast about the greatest innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. In each episode, the founders of some of the world’s best-known companies and brands take us through their triumphs, failures, and insights. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t already!

And now, Guy is coming out with a new book: How I Built This: The Unexpected Paths to Success from the World’s Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs. He has distilled all the wisdom he’s learned from these amazing entrepreneurs into a valuable resource for anyone aspiring to build a business or who is interested in the process!
In our interview, Guy and I covered some fascinating topics, including the key skills that set entrepreneurs apart, what you can learn from failure, and the importance of focusing on mission instead of money. This is an interview you’re not going to want to miss, so get a pen and paper ready to take some notes!
