388 — Lucas Béland

Podcast Summary

I sincerely appreciated Lucas’ candor.

He and his team are quite innovative with their approach to creating experiences for brands and their customers.

And, he is quite articulate about his personal struggle From Founder To CEO at the ripe age of 19.

It has to do with the difference between setting expectations versus setting objectives…it’s a lesson we all need to remember at any age of entrepreneurship.
