LISTEN: All Episodes of 3 Things with Ric Elias

Red Ventures CEO Ric Elias is one of the luckiest people you’ll ever meet. He was lucky enough to survive a plane crash and to share on the TED stage 3 things he learned from that experience…

As a lifelong learner, he believes there is something to learn from every experience, and from every conversation.

On the “3 Things” podcast, he shares private conversations he feels lucky to have had with remarkable people. On Season 1, he spoke with an astronaut, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, a former monk, CEOs, and Hall-of-Fame athletes.

Just as he did on the TED stage, he summarizes each conversation with 3 things we can all take away from these impressive people.
