Today I’m sitting down with a friend of mine, Daniel Curtis. He is the founder of Robb Vices, a highly curated luxury boxed goods membership.
We talk about what it was like growing up in such a highly successful entrepreneurial family, how his parents made him such a kind, hungry and driven individual despite growing up with so much privilege, and why and how he started Robb Vices. And we talk about how he balances being a great husband and father with his incredibly successful business. And he points out the one strong correlation between wealthy individuals who are happy and those who aren’t.
