My One Last Thought

on August 11, 2019 in Audio, Tips

Division I basketball coach Ido Singer hosted me on his podcast, One Last Thought, which features guests sharing their one last thought. That is, if you could share one thought from what you’ve learned from life for future generations, what would you share? He pairs each person’s thought with another, so each episode features two guests. My episode is about 5 minutes. Click here for more episodes or below to[…] Keep reading →

The Company I Co-Founded Locked Me Out of the Office

on August 10, 2019 in Audio, Leadership, Stories

Hear me share on Paul Smith’s Lead With a Story podcast how the company I co-founded, Submedia, locked me out of the office as the final nail of ousting me. More precisely, after ousting me from the CEO position, owing to Submedia’s running out of money — I won’t argue it being a fair reason to switch CEOs — the new team moved offices and didn’t give me a key[…] Keep reading →

Many people ask counterproductive questions, like “How should I do X?”, “How do I convince someone to do Y?”, or “What do I need to know to become a leader?” The most effective question is “How do I learn to lead?“, or in entrepreneurship and taking initiative, “How do I learn to take initiative?“[…] Keep reading →

Your Daily Environment, 003: Trevor Noah on plastic and science doesn’t motivate

on July 24, 2019 in Audio, Nature
