Eyes Wide Open with Isaac Lidsky and Chris Cooper

A powerful insight inspired my guest Isaac Lidsky to achieve his most ambitious dreams despite losing his sight to a blinding disease: it isn’t external circumstances, but how we perceive and respond to them, that governs our reality. Series regular “Weasel” on Saved by the Bell: The New Class, Isaac graduated from Harvard College at 19 and from Harvard Law School); served as a Supreme Court law Clerk ; was a Justice Department litigator; founded a tech start-up (sold for $230 million); turned a failing construction subcontractor into a highly profitable  construction services company (ten times larger); and founded Hope for Vision, a non-profit that funds the development of treatments and cures for blinding diseases. He’s been a main stage TED speaker and his book, “Eyes Wide Open” is a New York Times, USA Today and Indie bestseller. Join us for a conversation that will help us all to move forward with our eyes wide open!
