Cory Machado, Interview with Lolli CEO Alex Adelman
What is your mindset everyday regarding business/ success?
I wake up everyday and can’t wait to get build. I love what I do and can’t see myself doing anything else. I forever want to create things that positively impact the world and I want to do it with amazing people. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do that with Lolli (www.lolli.com).
What are your daily habits that make you successful?
I try to keep my life as simple as possible. I do my best to drink a lot of water, get a good night sleep, practice yoga as much as possible, spend quality time with friends and family, and I enjoy cooking as a creative and calming outlet.
Favorite sports team?
Carolina Tar Heels
Hobbies when you were a kid ?
I grew up wrestling most of my childhood. I love the sport and feel like it helped shape me into the person I am today.
When you were a kid what did you want to be?
I wanted to be an architect and an astronaut at different moments in my childhood. I’ve always loved building things, solving hard problems, and exploring the unknown.
What are your thoughts on money & investing?
Money gives you freedom. Freedom makes you happy. Important not to lose sight of the true value of money.
What’s the best advice you have been given?
Life is short. Enjoy every moment of it.
How do you go about goal setting ?
I don’t set personal goals. I trust that I am exactly where I want and need to be at every moment in time. Everyone is different but it works for me.
How do you deal with criticism and how do you overcome obstacles?
I welcome constructive criticism. I overcome obstacles by clearing my mind and trying to make thoughtful rational decisions as quickly as possible.
