Ultra-Marathon-Man Dean Karnazes Talks About Pushing Limits In Business

Being a successful entrepreneur is a lot like being a long-distance runner. You have to have an appreciation for the challenges ahead, including the difficulties and the rewards. And you have to have the resilience to push through the hard times to reach your goal.

Dean Karnazes knows more than a little about perseverance and what it takes to succeed. The ultra-marathon-man has run 350 continuous miles, going three nights without sleep. He has run across Death Valley in 120-degree temperatures. And he has run a marathon to the South Pole at temperatures up to -40 degrees F.KarnazesProfile

At a special presentation to the next gathering of the Marin Business Forum, Dean will share what he has learned in his training and running ultra-marathons. He also will talk about how his commitment to physical endurance has translated into business success, and how he taps the same kind of strength, courage, and mental fortitude as an entrepreneur that he uses as a marathon runner.

In addition to being a celebrated endurance athlete, philanthropist, and bestselling author, Dean also is an accomplished businessman, having worked Fortune 500 companies and startups alike. A graduate of the USF McLaren School of Business & Management, Dean is uniquely able to demonstrate how the lessons learned from his athletic endeavors can be applied to business.

Don’t miss this special gathering of the Marin Business Forum on January 9th at 5:00 p.m. You will be inspired, and you will have a chance to share that inspiration with other Marin professionals. See you at the Wood Island Office Park.
