The power of a mission to help us do hard things, with Jeff Goins

Quick subscribe


For most people work is just that - it's work. For a few lucky people it's much more than that. They've found a calling or a vocation. People are motivated by very different things but for me the idea of calling or vocation has always been very strongly present. I want what I do with my time and labours to have meaning in the world.

This calling isn't something you just find one day and simply snap into. It takes time and effort to reveal. This week my guest is Jeff Goins. Jeff is an author and entrepreneur and his books 'The Art of Work' and 'Real Artists Don't Starve' have both had a big impact on my personal philosophy.

Not only does Jeff write great books about things which really matter to me, he's also a great digital entrepreneur and he's going to share exactly how his business works on the back end - it's a real treat.
