Welcome to the fifth episode of The Sandbox, my experimental project to develop interviewing skills and discover the nuances of creating a podcast.
Today’s guest is Kevin McWilliams. In this episode, Kevin shares his story of developing a growth mindset and the impact that shift has had on his life. Kevin and I discuss how to align your time with your priorities to get what you want from life. We also dive into his love for sports, his complicated relationship with his dad, spotting career opportunities, and much more.
This episode is perfect for anyone looking for inspiration to push past their limiting beliefs. I hope you enjoy it!
