In episode 7 I interviewed Dion Walcot, the entrepreneur behind Martk’d, a dynamic custom shoe design competition. We discussed his background and how he uses his past experience as an athlete from a tough environment in his business and how artists are similar to athletes. We also talked about why education is just as important as street smarts and how dressing like a professional doesn't necessarily mean wearing traditional corporate attire. Dion shares insights about working with Yellowbrick, an organization that teaches creatives how to up-level and why it's important to partner with the right people.
