“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, you have to go with others,” says retired Louisiana State University basketball coach Dale Brown, a Hall-of-Famer who devoted himself to players’ off-the-court needs first. The renowned speaker shares his philosophies with former SUCCESS magazine Publisher Darren Hardy in this one-on-one matchup.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the September 2015 edition of SUCCESS magazine.
