Christian Navarro: “I've been at the bottom; and if I can use that energy to help people stay on top, then I win.”

Listen as Christian shares how lessons from his tumultuous childhood helped him brave the COVID-19 pandemic, why brick-and-mortar institutions are here to stay, and what’s in Christian’s glass right now.
