Greg Secker has no typical day. He juggles between the multiple companies remotely from home. He mostly travels when he is booked on stage to give motivational talks. What excites him most in the technological space is the freedom of choice that comes with it. People can now opt for the brands, products, and services they desire without the intervention and influence of the mainstream media.
Greg’s most productive habit is thinking. From his observation, the society puts more emphasis on getting stuff done without taking the time to find ways of doing it better. If he were to start over, Greg would take more time to appreciate the journey and not rush through life in a crazy pace as he did.
