"Best advice I've ever gotten is to write down a list of what you're afraid of. Then rip the paper in half." Greg grew up in Seattle in the US & now is the CEO & founder of which pairs mentors & students in an open platform & consulting service. He is also an ultra, ultra marathoner, currently training for 7 marathons on 7 different continents in 7 days. As you can imagine he's quite an energetic & focused guy. So we spend quite a bit of time discussing his routines, efforts, practices & disciplines in order to push through & challenge himself. I did a terrible job of taking notes during this interview. Almost unreadable. So here's an abridged version of what I could decipher from my messed up handwriting. - Using mentors to help people follow more authentic paths for themselves - Growing up in a small community Seattle - Running ultra marathons & being in nature as an Entrepreneur - An early teacher encouraging him that it was cool to be smart - A later science teacher teaching people how to have fun in a laboratory - From a history teacher showing that "Surplus" as a defining word for history - if a society can create surplus, it can do amazing things. If not, it eventually goes to zero. - Joining advisory board for MakerGirl - How being distracted by the constituent parts of projects or emails prevents action Links: Dyad - Mentorship for Admission & Scholarships MakerGirl Music: For more podcast episodes about starting business in China & other show notes visit:
