The UrbanCred Podcast Episode 03: Haute Hero with Chris Pin
For this episode, we speak with the Haute Hero's sneaker designer about the origins, positioning, and the struggles of running a business.
Sometimes ideas come to us when we least expect it and when it does, it requires us to rethink the industry...or at least our own. We talk about how difficult it is to start something, have it be successful, and moving forward from that success. We talk about relationships and advice from others as well as improving yourself not only through experience but through constant learning through others via books. Because sometimes the next step is a book away.
