008: From NASA to LinkedIn, Problem Solving and Influence w/ Edgar Hernandez
Edgar Hernandez and I worked together at NASA's Kennedy Space Center the summer of 2018 and have hit it off ever since. He's a software engineer who understands how to take an idea and a problem space and engineer a solution and a service. This perspective and mindset can be applied to all areas of life effectively, with great results. Edgar is proof that everyone has the ability to achieve great things, and sometimes all it takes is one single influential experience or person to flip on that light switch.Going Vertical is an entrepreneurial conversation hosted by visionary Ross Hoffman and guests who have extravagant visions for improving the world, personal wealth, technology, and people’s lives. What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? Let’s chat about how to make it a reality.
