Steve Case founded AOL. He’s a self-made billionaire and author of the New York Times bestseller “The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur's Vision of the Future.” This is one of my most popular episodes from 2016. Because he has a great story (he turned down Bill Gates, when Gates wanted to buy AOL for millions). He saw a bigger future. And he held on to that idea. He learned how to master his own future. That’s what this episode is about.
