This is the Startup Junkies Podcast. These are the stories of the people that are afflicted with creating the next great products and services that are going to change lives - not just in America, but worldwide. We're going to tell the stories of the next great beer producer, products and apparel makers, and the stories of people that don't accept the status quo and that want to make things better. 

Welcome to the Startup Junkies Podcast.

Summary:

The Startup Junkies were joined by an NWA legend on this 279th podcast episode! We are excited to introduce you to Steuart Walton, the co-founder of Runway Group. Not that only, but he is also the founder of Game Composites and serves on many boards, including Walmart, Crystal Bridges, and The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. To say he is a busy man would be an understatement, and we were thrilled to have him on the podcast with us!

Quotes:

"The real economic impact of COVID in my mind was the initial disruption." 

(2:30) - Steuart Walton

 

"The state of Arkansas is one of the most underappreciated states in terms of natural beauty." (7:57) - Steuart Walton

 

"I think when folks underestimate you and then you have almost impossibly high expectations for yourself… Those two ingredients actually set you up to go a long way and to make a lot of progress in a really short [amount of] time." (17:34) - Steuart Walton

 

"If you have success, it's not going to be like, 'Oh my gosh, I was successful and all my problems went away!' Your problems are just gonna look a little different, but they're still going to be there and they are still going to be real.  They're still going to drag you down if you don't address them." (38:31) - Steuart Walton
