EP 187: Ryan Kavanaugh: How to be a player (without playing the game)

Ryan Kavanaugh has been a controversial figure in entertainment. He built a very successful business at Relativity — perhaps the largest independent movie studio, plus management businesses in sports, music, and e-sports. He also made some enemies. He was critical of the Hollywood establishment, and took some beatings in the press for his innovations. Ryan came by the studio to tell us how he's tackling the future of media and culture with Triller, building the next big Hollywood idea with the Entertainment Stock Exchange, and how he's learned to build the kind of company he wants to work for. Great lessons here from a leader who's enjoyed incredible highs and lows. My man earned his stripes and he's not afraid to share what he's learned.
