EP063: Would You Be Missed If You Were Gone? w/ Seth Godin (2017 Throwback)

Thought leader Seth Godin joins Daniel for a conversation about human nature and how it relates to business marketing. Seth is the author of 18 best-selling books, and the creator of the altMBA program. 

Today’s discussion addresses the lack of long-term thinking by young people, teaching patience and humility, and the best way to make money in marketing media.

We are all creators, but it’s easy to lose touch with that ability in our daily lives.
