[The Knowledge Project Ep. #145] Les Snead: Building a Super Bowl Champion
Shane: You were raised by a single mother. And I’m curious if you can tell me some of the lessons your mom taught you that you still think about today and try to teach your kids?
Les: Being raised by a single mom, the sociology there, I wouldn’t change anything because it can be, you’re going to earn grit. But I think the one lesson probably really good and sometimes bad is she did at times have to work a couple of jobs to make ends meet, because she wasn’t college educated and we were in a small town. And she’s become a pillar in that small town. But she really worked, and it meant something to her. Probably just growing up in that environment and seeing it, watching it, I always said, there are no sick days, you got to go in into work. But I think that’s the number one lesson. The other one is you spend a lot of time as a young kid alone. And in those days, pre-phone, pre-iPads, if you were bored, you had to figure out how to not be bored. You had to learn proactiveness, staying ahead of the curb, things like that.
