Having candid conversations with other people about life, experiences, and knowledge is critical to individual growth. Understanding another individual’s journey and how they got to where they are today is a great way to learn and carve a path toward your own success. For this reason, Power Digital decided to create the Soapbox Series. The purpose of this series is to have conversations with informed, impactful individuals across all industries to learn about their lives, gain insight into important lessons, and ask questions.
