Episode 28 – 3 Philosophies to Success with Mary Grossman

Listen to this episode

In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits with Mary Grossman. Mary first visited Jackson in 1963 while still in her mom’s belly. After working summers in Jackson Hole during college, Mary moved out to stay in Jackson in 1987 after being recruited by the Grand Teton Music Festival. Mary created the publication Valley Horse Journal and Planet Jackson Hole.

In this episode, Stephan and Mary talk about journalism, free speech, work ethic, and success.

Mary’s three philosophies to success:

  1. Have the ability to take on a lot of work and know what hard work is
  2. Don’t be afraid to fail
  3. Practice austerity when times are good
