“I’m In!” A Motto for Success: Roger Birnbaum’s Commencement Speech at the University of Denver
~ Roger Birnbaum
Roger Birnbaum, Epiphany contributor and the current Co-Chairman and CEO of MGM Studios, accepted an honorary doctorate and gave the commencement speech at the University of Denver this year about the importance of taking risks and having the willingness to fail and say “yes” in life. His motto of “I’m in!” at many – what turned out to be – crossroad moments has led him along his extremely fulfilling and illustrious career. This is one of those inspiring, fun and uplifting talks you want to have seen and towards the end, he tells the epiphany story he shared with me for my book.
“Striving to be the best possible version of yourself and helping the people around you do the same enriches your life and always comes right back to you.”
