DECIDING FACTORS takes a close look at decision-making, what influences it, and how to learn and apply insight to make an informed choice. Our guests are experts in their fields. Our host, Eric Jaffe, uncovers how they navigated their own paths, what they learned from their journey, and how you can apply these lessons in your own life and career.
