16 Putting Passion into Action with Doug Cornfield

Children’s book author Doug Cornfield joined the Learning from Smart People podcast. We talked about his book, “A Pound of Kindness” and the sports camps that he and his business partner, Dave Clark, run for kids and young adults with disabilities.

During the interview, Doug talked about the following:

  • The greatest mostly unknown story in sports
  • The need to develop a great product that you can actually sell
  • The importance of finding and following your passions
  • The danger of focusing on the “No’s”
  • Understanding that you are the best salesperson for your book
  • Having a purpose and broader vision for your business
  • Why he and Dave called their business “Best Burn”
