There’s book smarts. 

And then there’s street smarts. We know which of these two we have more of, and what areas of the other we need to work on, but how exactly do we go about doing this? 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the balance of street smarts and book smarts. When we lean too heavily in one direction, our skills become lopsided and as a result, our career trajectory may flatten. But if we can welcome both domains of knowledge into our daily lives, we are able to reach new heights. 

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to manage these sometimes opposing forces, so you can maximize your potential!
