Campbell Baron Launches New Podcast Series I CBC Kids News


♪ [light] Hi, I’m Campbell Baron, and today I’m going to
talk to you about marijuana About NAFTA. About climate change. ♪ ♪ Hello,
my name is Campbell Baron, and I’m the founder
of The Ones Who Succeed. So The Ones Who Succeed
is a brand new video and audio podcast
that I started in June of 2018 based around
interviews I’ve done with successful
entrepreneurs of all kinds. ♪ ♪ An entrepreneur is someone
who sees an opportunity and then creates a business
around that opportunity. And sometimes they fail,
and sometimes they succeed. And that’s just
part of the game. ♪ ♪ I do think I was, kind of,
almost born into it. My uncle is an entrepreneur. He’s from Canada
but he moved to Shanghai, which is in China,
a big city. So he– he decided
it’d be a cool idea to start a grilled cheese
restaurant in Shanghai. He spent hours producing, like,
learning how to make it. What type of bread. You need this sour dough,
you need this cheese. You know, he’s very
interested in that. ♪ ♪ It’s recently quite recent. It’s rated on one of
the top three, or top five restaurants to eat in all of
Shanghai, which is a big deal. He’s out– he’s opening
up more locations. ♪ ♪ Campbell: I’ve met
with entrepreneurs like Michael Dubin, the founder
and CEO of Dollar Shave Club, Elizabeth Cutler,
the co-founder of SoulCycle, Rich Pierson the co-founder
and CEO of Headspace, Alex Blumberg
of Gimlet Media, Chris Sacca former Venture
Capitalist and Shark, and many others. ♪ ♪ Chris Sacca, in the States,
he’s a very well-known guy. He’s has, like, 1.9 million
followers on Twitter. He’s a very well known,
he’s a public figure now. ♪ ♪ No response. I kept at it. I followed up the next week,
and then the next week, and then the next week. Eventually I was like
“Oh, you know what? I don’t care what it takes. I’m just going to–
I’m going to go for it. I’m just going
to keep following up”. ♪ ♪ I remember sitting
at my sitting at my– sitting at my kitchen table, and I see that
Chris Sacca replied. And it wasn’t the auto reply. It was like a full on text,
and my hands just start shaking. I was literally, like,
“Wait, wait. This isn’t
supposed to happen. Wait. He replied? What?” If you’re persistent, at least from
what I’ve learned, you will win. And that was the moral
of the story. Throughout these conversations
you will hear the ups… I open it up and
there’s a check in there for $264,000
and I start screaming like I have won the publisher’s
clearing house sweepstakes. I was so excited. And downs… And I sat at my
parents kitchen table, I was back home
for the holidays, and I was crying. I was like,
“What did I just do?” Like I just made the biggest
mistake in my life. ♪ ♪ I think one that
really sticks to mind is not being
afraid of failure. I mean nobody wants
to see their company fail, but if it fails, it’s really about getting
up after the failure, taking the hit,
and trying again. And the people who are
successful entrepreneurs, the ones who succeed, are the people who take
the hit and then stand up on their own two feet
and try again. ♪ ♪
