Throwing the Box Away with Mitch Axelrod

Tags: intellectual property, business and life alignment, entrepreneur, digital marketing

For decades we have been hearing: get outside the box!  But when we are just outside the box, we are still tethered to the box.  We already come with pre-ordained boxes and borders that we put around ourselves, it’s called bias.  And although bias isn’t a bad thing, we don’t know our biases because we are in a “fishbowl.” – Mitch

Mitch just celebrated his 40th year in business.  He has never had a “job” since the day he walked out of college.  He serves as a consultant and has spoken to over a million people.  Over the years, Mitch says he has learned way more than he has taught.
