MBA921 Why Hard Work Is Not Enough

Hard work pays off, or so we’re told. But on today’s podcast, we’re discussing something that isn’t easy to say, or hear: Hard work by itself just won’t cut it.

Like talent, passion, or a great product idea, hard work is only one part of a greater equation. There are other ingredients, including one that’s rarely discussed but easily as important as hard work. It’s another core value, without which hard work can only take you so far.
