Here are some key takeaways from our exclusive interview with Batman:
- Take your time to reflect and find your identity and your purpose in life.
- Invest in a good research and development team to push for innovation and technology.
- Hire the right (and new) talent to do what is needed in a business so you can focus your time and energy on more critical tasks.
- It’s important to have incredible mentors as a guiding force to where you are going in your life.
- Your greatest fear could either be your biggest weakness or your biggest strength. Choose the latter.
- It’s easy to be a superhero with a superpower. To be a superhero without a superpower is the mark of a true hero.
- Being a superhero is more about having a vision, and being driven by that vision to make the world a better place.
- Keep exploring new things to find something that you are truly passionate about.
