Can you recommend a book or a podcast that our listeners should immediately get into?
I will recommend two books. One is Wired for Story. That is a great book, everyone should read that, because that is the foundation that all of this stuff rests upon. Running a business is hard as hell, that’s why very few people succeed. So a great book that unpacks this is a book by Ben Horowitz called The Hard Things About Hard Things.
It shows the underbelly of entrepreneurship and how to deal with extreme adversity.
Everything that you can imagine will go wrong, but it’s okay because you will make it through. It’s about how you respond in those moments. It’s important to spend your time consuming content that gives you a unique vantage point on those problems, so you don’t think that everything’s meant to be easy and everything’s meant to be fine and dandy.
The Checkout is a short snippet of our conversations.
