Erik has summited the highest peaks of the business world (selling four companies for hundreds of millions of dollars) and the physical world (successfully climbing Mt. Everest in 2018). He is proudest not of the trophies on his wall memorializing the accomplishments, but of the scars he has accumulated overcoming both the external obstacles and internal trap of self-doubt along the way. Erik has an MBA from Kellogg School of Business and an undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina. He lives with his wife and daughter in Chicago.

I'm not sure what I expected Bode Miller to tell me about the key to his resilience and success, but I sure didn't think it would be "coherence" -- a holistic and consistent approach to finding balance and improving performance.
Listen to your internal voice that's telling you someone is trying to take advantage of you.
It’s easy to have an “always-on” mentality when you’re an entrepreneur. You own a business that depends on you to survive, so you never really get a day off – right?
Reducing the haze of constant stress will enable you to make better decisions.
Mountaineering and entrepreneurship both come with immeasurable joy and hardship.
