Before I started my company, I would spend an hour in the car every morning listening to the Gary V Audio Experience. I would pair this podcast with a daily flat white and it would fire me up just before I spent the rest of my day as a cog in the corporate wheel.
However, this daily experience left me with a residue of disappointment, angst and frustration because I came to realize that I was an entrepreneur, masquerading as a happy and compliant employee. And each day I felt less like myself as I listened and compared myself to all of the founders who had found a way to do what I [seemingly] could not.
And then something happened.
