Nelson Mcmillan is a British Royal Navy veteran and former warship Commanding Officer with 19 years of leadership, innovation, and strategy experience ranging from NATO and the UN to Fortune 100 companies. He is a Harvard Business School alumnus, a Stanford entrepreneurship graduate, and has innovated commercially for American Express, Goldman Sachs, and Nokia. Nelson is a Thrive Global contributor and founder of a consulting practice that helps organizations Strike Deep with their people through intrapreneurship. Nelson Mcmillan has a long list of impressive credentials and accomplishments, yet he is the first person to tell you that he failed hugely at each stage of his life and that his life has not been all about success.  In this podcast, he shares all of his setbacks and how he turned them around while deepening his self-knowledge. He says, “In order to realize potential, you have to know yourself.” In this episode we discuss: Nelson’s first venture out of high school, when he joined the British Royal Navy and climbed the ranks while learning about international leadership and strategy. How failure shaped his path and taught him to fight through it for big successes. Nelson’s thoughts on intrapreneurship. The importance of finding a balance between under-preparing and over-preparing. How Nelson evaluates his life and the direction he is headed through SWOT analysis. The benefits of taking a longer gain view instead of seeking instant gratification.  Listen, subscribe and read show notes at - episode 020
