Seth Godin needs no introduction, but for those of you who want details, Seth is the author of 18 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He’s also the founder of the altMBA and The Marketing Seminar, online workshops that have transformed the work of thousands of people. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip and Purple Cow. His blog (which you can find by typing “seth” into Google) is one of the most popular in the world. In 2018, he was inducted into the Marketing Hall of Fame. His latest book, This Is Marketing, came out in November 2018. Also, I'm a huge fan. :) If you listened to episode 109, you heard why I love him. In episode 110, Mark Metry and I talk about interviewing him. And now, here he is!

This episode was originally supposed to focus on Mark's transition from shy and socially anxious to top 100 podcaster and speaker, but the episode took on a life of its own very early on in the conversation. I decided to name it "How to do Anything" because by the end of it, I was pretty sure I could apply Mark's wisdom and mindset to everything and be successful at it. We discuss:
- how he invented "Mark 2.0" and what he does when "Mark 1.0" shows up
- what he has learned about podcasting and how it has impacted his vision
- the most important areas of your life to pay attention to if you want a clear mind, energy, and ability to act out your goals
- the value of meditation, diet, journaling, and other tools for building confidence and self-awareneness
