“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
Benjamin Franklin

Polina Marinova knows about mastery and excellence. Whether it’s Steve Schwartzman, Melinda Gates or Elon Musk, she’s extensively studied the world’s most successful and interesting people in business, entertainment, tech, sports, and more.

And since everyone has a story, we can all learn a lesson or two from the world's most successful, including:

  • Their habits, routines, and rituals

  • How they approach complex problems and decisions

  • Leadership tactics to grow their organizations

  • How they build genuine and authentic relationships

Polina’s also a career pivoter, leaving Fortune’s industry renknown Term Sheet newsletter for solopreneurship as the founder of The Profile.

She’ll share how she got the courage to leave an established role, the inevitable trade-offs, and how she scales her business.

(And btw, The Profile is endorsed by The Rock!)
