Advice in times of disruption

May 4, 2021
Decoding AQ with Ross Thornley Feat. David Meltzer

Show notes

David Meltzer has created a platform that uses four overarching principles—gratitude, empathy, accountability, and effective communication—and these principles have allowed him to communicate and mentor everyone from college students to c-suite executives. These four principles in everyday practice allow David to live by his mission to “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.”

Ross and David talk about adaptability, thriving, journeys through life, adapting and movies. The pair also discuss making money, abundance, faith, mindset, control, persistence,
and keeping an open mind.
