Ep. 100: Embracing The Unconventional
Sep 26 15
“I learned that people’s opinions of me didn’t matter and that wasn’t a reflection of who I was.” @iwearyourshirt
“You don’t get what you don’t ask for.” @iwearyourshirt
“Define your own metrics of success.” @iwearyourshirt
On the show with me today is Jason Zook. You may know him better as Jason Sadler, Jason Headsetsdotcom and Jason SurfrApp.
Jason is the founder of iwearyourshirt.com and honestly, one of the most creative people that I’ve met when it comes to making money outside the typical 9-5. In fact, having to work the 9-5 is one of Jason’s greatest fears, I’ve learned.
What I love most about Jason is that he decided early on his life that instead of trying to fit in, he would embrace and unleash the fact that he thinks differently. And the truth is, most people struggle so hard to fit in and in doing so, repress themselves to live under someone else’s definition of normal.
He’s a big fan of Skittles, a car junkie and has a platonic crush on Elon Musk, which, for those of you who have been listening for a while, you know I do too.
