“Crazy is you.”

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A MAVERICK?

“That’s an interesting term that gets thrown around a lot in this day and age, especially in business. It’s applied a lot to people who generally step outside the lines and take risks, but also those you trail blaze. It’s got that terminology to the old west, it’s like this guy is doing this or this woman is doing this. Trailblazing and mavericks seem to go hand in hand.”
