ANGLES OF LATITUDE PODCAST - HOSTED BY JC PRESTON

The mission of New Inceptions is to provide reanimated Creators from around the world with the community and resources they need to thrive and build outstanding lives through work that matters not only to them, but possibly the rest of the world. When in the community, those individuals, called Renegades, pledge not only to support one another, but to also give a positive atmosphere to those that are in their daily lives.

When building a business, it's important to have passion in what you're doing. However, for a lot of Millennials, we tend to kind of brush over the hard parts and go right to the fun stuff.

Listen as Laila and JC interview Mark Nathan about what he went through in building his business and his new book: Delusion of Passion - Why Millennials Struggle with Success.
