Mitchell Lawson: Rescue Swimming, Special Projects, & Man’s Search For Meaning

Mitchell joined the US Navy at the age of 19 because he realized he didn’t have the maturity to continue college. After serving six years in the military, this rescue swimmer pursued his business administration degrees and took up a “Special Projects” position at a travel guidebook publishing company, Lonely Planet. Today, he plays a major role in transitioning his company to a digital-first mindset, quickly adding new features to get content to their users in the ways they've needed the most. In this episode, he shares his future plans, what he would’ve done differently, how COVID has been a blessing in disguise,  and about the book he reads over and over again.
