Dean, 36, explained: \"I started calling the engineering company and said, \'Hello, we are strong and we want to shock people with electricity. In May 2010, after studying for an MBA at Harvard Business School, he opened his first \"adult weekend obstacle course\" in Allen, Pennsylvania \".
\"You will pause for a moment, and then the line will disappear.
People thought they were being played a prank.
\"An obstacle known as electroshock therapy, including crossing the wire with a voltage of 10,000 V (
Three times that of a normal electric fence)
Now is the iconic challenge of the event.

\"The innovation lab sounds crazy,\" Dean said . \".
\"I joked that you will never win a Nobel prize unless you test it yourself.
Let\'s start by saying: let\'s think about something unimaginable.
We ended up saying: now we have to do this in Dubai, Germany and Mexico and get thousands of people of all shapes and sizes through in an hour.
This is a strange remittance.
Obstacle games have become very popular, with 5 million people from 40 countries participating each year.

\"The mud is flat,\" Dean said . \".
But why spend money to endure the pain created?
Dean believes that this trend may be a response to our risks to some extent.

\"I believe in challenging myself to accept new things. I believe this is the secret of developing self-confidence.

Next month, Dean publishes a new business book that requires a tribe to analyze the social psychology, corporate theory, and personal stories behind his success.
It also recorded a fierce battle to shape the company.

\"I have a lot of respect for Joe De Sena, just like I made fun of him.
When asked if we have something in common, I once said: Yes, we wake up every morning and the first thing we think of is to get more chaotic.
But I do think that the idea of a competitor means that we end up creating two companies that look similar but quite different on the surface.
What is even more disturbing is the millions of dollars of litigation that the Dean faced in 2010.
Billy Wilson, a former soldier who opened an obstacle course in Wolverhampton in 1987, provided Dean\'s Harvard research with his company information and then accused him of stealing him
Dean was sued for slander.
After a fierce battle, the two men reached a non-disclosure agreement in 2011, with Dean reportedly paying $725,000.
\"There\'s only so much I can say, but one thing I can say is that we\'re actually four times as fast as we were.

But now it\'s part of the story.
I don\'t think we would have been so ambitious if it weren\'t for that experience.
