In this episode…
Is a world where everyone wins possible? David Gonzalez believes so but only if everyone changes how they think about the world and the people in it. He says the era where people seek to eviscerate the competition or exploit others to get ahead in business and life needs to be over. But it’s no easy task and it would actually require people to be more inclined to giving and doing business that’s beyond themselves. That’s why he is inspired by people such as Nikola Tesla and Manoj Bhargava, whom he considers to be the universe’s top givers.
David is an incredible entrepreneur and leader in the digital marketing space. He has a genuine interest to connect with people and it is clearly evident in how he elevates people in companies. And he is a genius at creating meaningful connections.
In this Top Givers Series of INspired INsider, Dr. Jeremy Weisz interviews David Gonzalez of Simply The Coolest about what it means to do business beyond self, the people he considers the top givers in the universe and why he finds them inspiring, and his thoughts on what would happen if everyone had $800 million. He also shares how he overcame the biggest struggle he’s been through and why he recommends compartmentalizing the things that you can and cannot control. Stay tuned.
