What motivates you to be successful? How far are you willing to go?

James Ellis dropped out of high school then … moved to New York City. He was determined to succeed. By any means necessary. After emails, letters, and phone calls failed to get him in the door, he decided a more direct approach was his only option. All he had to do was barge into a secure building, rush past the guard, and make it to the third floor undetected.

James Ellis and Steve Fritz on taking risks, not playing by the rules, and Guns N’ Roses.
