  1. Hey Guys,

    Great episode…

    I think choosing a niche you’re passionate about is huge. I know there’s a lot of debate on this topic but I couldn’t see doing this day in and day out if I wasn’t interested in it. It also reminds me of the Dan Pink interview. Money isn’t always the motivating factor. You have to love what you’re doing. I still need a lot of work in this area but knowing I love the Niche helps out tremendously.

    Talk to you soon,


    • That Dan Pink triad of motivation is brilliant. It has had a huge impact on how I manage my own focus, the focus of our team and what we teach to our students.

  2. Great episode, guys. I definitely have to try the double speed audio book listening trick. But first I have to get into the habit again of using every chance to listen to podcasts and audio books. I don’t really know why I haven’t done this in the last few years.

    Oh, and by the way: The “creative spot” that works best for me is the toilet. I know it sounds a little bit weird. But I had a lot of my best ideas while sitting on the toilet. Whatever quirky thing is going on with my brain there. But hey, as long as it works ;-)

  3. Michael,

    Whatever works for you!
