Lew Frankfort, chairman and former CEO of Coach Inc., shares insight into whether empirical evidence or gut feelings are more reliable. While he thinks it's unclear, one thing is for sure: You cannot trust your clients or consumers to predict the future, and you should respect the brand you're building through all its life stages, from childhood to young adulthood and onward. Hear the nuances of balancing analytics with gut feelings in this short conversation with mindbodygreen CEO and founder Jason Wachob.

A native New Yorker, Lew established himself as a successful leader at Coach Inc., where he worked for more than 30 years, taking the brand from $5 million in sales to more than $6 billion. Since leaving Coach, he's created Benvolio Group, LLC, for venture investing, has joined the board at WeWork, and has become a chairman of Flywheel and an investor and partner in mindbodygreen.
