Steve Eakin joins Daniel to talk all things entrepreneurial. Steve has successfully transitioned from corporate drone to sought after CTO. As much as people want to believe it, Steve didn’t just rise to the top. He has put in the hours and taken the risks. Both Daniel and Steve point out the path of an entrepreneur is so unpredictable that you have to love the process in order to stay in the game.
