54. Even The Best Are Allowed A Few Strikeouts with Andy Cates

My guest today is Andy Cates. Andy is an entrepreneur, investor, and community activist.

Here’s a little about Andy...

Founder and CEO of RVC Outdoor Destinations

Founding Chairman of the Soulsville Revitalization Project (one of the largest inner-city revitalization projects in the United States)

With several others responsible for bringing the Vancouver Grizzlies Franchise to Memphis, TN

And more!

I had a great time with Andy where you’ll learn:

  • What it’s like living with the fear of failure, but why even the best hitters are still able to have a few losses


  • How he assesses opportunity early and his process in picking talent and building things from scratch


  • What he’s learned about crossing racial lines and building trust and getting stuff done


  • Where he’s failed by not growing opportunities fast enough


  • And more!
