Manage episode 181664112 series 1424553
Neal ‘Rudy’ Rickner is the head of strategy and operation at Mikani, one of the GOOG/Alphabet X companies that is trying to make high-altitude power generation kites. He is also, and depending on the time of day, more importantly a father, husband, and Marine fighter pilot. His take on how to balance everything, and grow despite feeling like a failure (which he most certainly is not), is instructive.
