It's not every day that one gets to talk to the best in their field. To be at the top of the heap shows one's willingness to sacrifice, persevere, and to truly love what they're doing. That's what I took away from speaking with Michael Menn. He loves what he does and he is where he is because he's worked tremendously hard and treats people right.
