  • the transformative power of building a platform

On the Roadmap Episode Overview

The talk was far-ranging and personal, with Rodney and Rae both opening up about finding success despite facing adversity. Rodney also shared how he’s living and overcoming expectations while disabled.

“Never let anyone tell you what your limits are because they don’t know you like you know yourself.  If someone tells you you can’t do something, that’s your challenge. That’s now what your driving goal is, to prove them wrong.”

– Rodney Nissen (AKA: “The Jira Guy)
