Jay Leno joins Adam for this week’s episode of Take A Knee. The guys dive right in to Jay’s upbringing in a small New England town where his love of all things automotive was fostered. Jay tells Adam about a guidance counselor who tried to get Jay’s mother to take him out of High School because ‘education isn’t for everyone’ and a teacher who did the exact opposite, fostering the inclination Jay showed toward comedy. As the conversation continues Adam & Jay talk about the arc of Jay’s career and how he has shaped his sensibilities throughout his career.
Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics Corporation joins Adam for this weeks episode of Take A Knee. Adam opens the show asking Hartley about his upbringing in Meridian, Mississippi. This leads to Hartley talking about the inception of his company and its eventual rise to one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of electronics in the world. Then, Adam and Hartley talk about the value of failures as teachable moments, and how no moment can truly be a failure if approached from the right perspective. Before they wrap, Adam talks about the detriments of trying to force a particular career upon yourself or your kids.
