Carey Smith is the CEO and Founder at Unorthodox Ventures. He led a company from $0 to $250 million in less than 20 years. What’s even more unusual is that he did it without kowtowing to investors or anyone else. Carey says his “secret” to success is just common sense, and he’s happy to share it with anyone willing to consider an entirely different kind of business plan.
