Wistia's Brendan Schwartz on Building with Grit and Gut

Patrick Campbell Oct 23 2018

Working really hard is great, but if you don't have conviction - then a lot of that hard work goes to waste. 

On this episode of Protect the Hustle, we sit down with Wistia Co-Founder and CTO Brendan Schwartz to talk instinct, conviction, and how hiring a team that embodies these values can shape your venture. As part of "the Wistia way," Schwartz nods to balancing fluidity with rigidity in following the right processes for you, as opposed to restricting yourself to the "traditional" model of doing things.
