EP16: Kara Goldin
I am so excited to share this week's guest: Hint Water founder Kara Goldin. Kara is a true entrepreneur in every sense of the word. Her journey to founding her company is full of twists and turns and reminded me that the path to being a founder and a leader is never a straight road. You have to be open to some detours. I found her advice to be refreshing, straight forward, and actionable, something we need more of when it comes to talking about founding a company. Her book, Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters, is excellent and is available now - I highly recommend it to anyone looking for how to overcome the voices who want to see you fail.

This week, I'm joined by renowned neuropsychologist Dr. Frank Maurio. I found my way into Dr. Maurio's office at one of the most challenging points of my life. I was lost and unsure of where to go next or what to do. The advice and guidance he gave me resonated with me so much, and the lessons he taught me I have used every year since in so many of the decisions I make, especially as it pertained to starting LivePerson. He is full of wisdom and I'm very excited to have him on Over the Wall today.

EP4: Lisa Bilyeu
My latest guest on Over the Wall is an incredible entrepreneur, podcast host, speaker, and co-founder, Lisa Bilyeu. You might know Lisa as the partner and wife of Tom Bilyeu, who, alongside, she eventually founded and sold health bar company Quest Nutrition for a cool billion dollars in 2019. Lisa’s journey took her from growing up in a conservative Greek family in London to eventually meeting Tom and relocating to Los Angeles when Tom was struggling to build his career in tech. Lisa went from a stay-at-home wife married to a high-functioning entrepreneur to eventually joining Tom in his career pivot, which led them to founding Quest and building it into a billion-dollar success. In the episode, Lisa talks about some of the pressures and emotional difficulties of building a massive business with your significant other, how to navigate personal and professional tension, the troubles and triumphs of building Quest, as well as her experiences (and challenges) being a female entrepreneur.

EP1: Alfred Lin & Fred Mossler
In November of 2020, the world of entrepreneurship lost an incredible leader and business icon with Tony’s Hsieh’s tragic passing. I was lucky enough to have spent time with Tony over the years and always looked up to him as someone who reinvented customer service while creating a culture-first company at Zappos and community built on passion and the quest for providing happiness. For the first episode of Over the Wall, I had the honor of being joined by Alfred Lin & Fred Mossler, two of Tony’s best friends and early Zappos executives, for an intimate and insightful conversation about Tony's core values, early challenges and inspirations, his unique leadership style, and how he took Zappos to unimaginable heights by attention to persistence and partnership in the face of challenges.
