Dave Hollis, CEO, The Hollis Company

Oct 22, 2019

Dave Hollis, CEO of The Hollis Company, gets to work alongside his wife, New York Times best-selling author, Hollis Company CCO and motivational speaker, Rachel Hollis every day. Dave, who was most recently a senior executive at the Walt Disney Company, had a career that looked great on paper, yet deep down he yearned for something deeper. Inspired by Rachel’s own journey, Dave made the decision to leave Disney and partner with Rachel at The Hollis Company. Together, they are growing a platform founded on the belief that everybody is made for more.

In this episode of Let Go & Lead, Dave shares his journey from Disney to The Hollis Company, how he’s moving from a fixed mindset to growth mindset, and how success must be defined by oneself, not others.
