I’m today’s guest on The Gently Mad! This is an interview I had lots of fun with, and I think you’re going to love it.
The Gently Mad is “a show about life, business & entrepreneurship without the bullshit.”
Adam Clark is a fantastic interviewer, and the show feels like you’re listening in to private conversations between friends.
In the show we talk about taking risks and pursuing our dreams, audience building (how to do it and how NOT to do it), product building, entrepreneurship as a lifestyle, what “success” really is and much more.

Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
I read last week that a record number of people are leaving their jobs. They’re leaving because we’re in a tight labor market right now, and finding a better job is easy.
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You start working on a new task, which requires you to do some research or look something up.
