Sam has the distinction of being fired from most of his jobs. He never quite fit in. That's partially what inspired the creation of Pavillion. It's a community - based support and education system for high-performance teams and individuals. He has been enormously successful with this business because he hired people different than him to help him run it. He shares his complicated relationship with finance, how he found freedom and fulfillment while creating a profitable business. Check out his book: Kind Folks Finish First
