John Hendricks has one of the most engaging entrepreneurial stories you’re likely to read about. As founder of the Discovery channel, he was responsible for broadcasting 100 channels to 1.5 billion people in 39 languages and more than 170 countries.
His book Curious Discovery: An Entrepreneur's Story detailed how he founded the Discover Channel went from a $100,000 second mortgage on his home and the brink of bankruptcy to a $23-billion media empire.
John was niching down and tapping into second screening before it was even a thing.
Here in 2016, he has returned as the founder and chairman of a Netflix of Non-Fiction service called CuriosityStream.
