TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

1. The question is not, “What am I born to do?” The question is, “How can I be of use?”
2. You don’t need to serve the world. What you need is the smallest viable audience, the smallest group of people who can sustain you.
3. We are all impostors. To lead is to be an impostor. And that’s okay.
4. You need to be on the hook. That means people admire what you do so much that if you don’t do it, they will miss it.
5. When you stand for something, now you’re off to the races.
6. Marketing is work that matters for people who care. It’s the match between what we build and what market will embrace
7. Chop wood and carry water.
8. If you want to make a living, create tension.
9. Start where you are. You can’t start where you’re not. Start with the smallest unit of contribution you can make. Find a piece of possibility. Show up, and repeat.
