Tools of Greatness: Lewis Howes Pathway to Success through Failure

Lewis Howes (US’01, C’05) speaks about the relevance of failure to achieving success. Entrepreneurs are well aware of the “fail fast, fail often” mentality, but what does that look like in real life?

Before Lewis Howes (US’01, C’05) became a global media sensation by empowering people and sharing "greatness," he had his own obstacles to overcome. From facing a learning disability and bullying in school to being sexually abused as a child and dealing with a sports injury while broke and sleeping on his sister’s couch, Lewis’s story exemplifies how anyone can overcome life’s obstacles and achieve greatness. Fast forward a few short years and Lewis is a New York Times bestselling author of The School of Greatness and The Mask of Masculinity. A former professional football player and two-sport All-American, Lewis is a current USA men’s National Handball Team athlete. He is a lifestyle entrepreneur, high-performance business coach, and frequent keynote speaker. He launched his podcast, "The School of Greatness," in 2013. After 300 million downloads and 100+ episodes, it is one of the Top 100 podcasts in the world. President Obama recognized Lewis as one of the top 100 entrepreneurs in the country under 30. He has been featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, ESPN, and other major media outlets, as well as in The New York Times, People, Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Sports Illustrated, and Men’s Health. His message to the world is “go out there and do something GREAT!”
