World Changer

Today I had the privilege of [Podcast] interviewing Erica Dhawan.

Erica has one of those resumes that gives me pause.

  • Forbes writer
  • Keynote speaker
  • Harvard graduate
  • Entrepreneur
  • Consultant

In this interview Erica and I discuss:

  • Why you should stop asking for permission from others?
  • Choosing a life of impact instead of following the herd.
  • The power of unleashing human potential.
  • How she got into Seth Godin’s Medicine Ball session after she was rejected.

Medicine Ball Tribe

We met at Seth Godin’s Medicine Ball session last December 2011 in NYC.

I wanted to circle back with a couple of key members of that Tribe to ask how their lives have been influenced by the three day intensive course with Seth.

It is not uncommon to go to a training session, take a bunch of great notes and then put them on the shelf.

I wanted to dust off my notes from that experience and help others do the same.

  • What changes did you make in your career?
  • How has your thinking changed?
  • What new Art are you shipping?
