Would you rather recruit someone average or someone exceptional? Sam Mitchell visits us to discuss living with Autism and excelling. Autism, Rocks, and Rolls, his podcast and non-profit, helps people perceive Autism from a different perspective.
Sam: There is a series side to podcasting and speaking; people are hearing me out.
Travis: Success looks different for everybody. Poor is a mindset. Broke is a bank account number and poor as a mindset.
Sam: The Creativity side of me makes me better than other people. I can be a lot more out-of-the-box thinker.
Gina: people in history that you know, their behavior - based on what people know now - you have these musical geniuses that probably had autism
