The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Aaron Hinde, Laura Gassner Otting, and Ryan Holiday have advice and experiences that will help you get where you truly want to be.

Laura Gassner Otting, author of “Limitless,” says, “I had the great fortune of having this business coach who was curious about what I was doing and wanted to help me. And I went to have breakfast with him, and I brought him all this great stuff. I brought him like my P&L sheets and my marketing material and all my to do lists and all this, and I thought I was gonna get all the gold stars. And he didn't look at any of it, and he basically was like, ‘What kind of life do you want?’ And I was like, What are you talking about? And he's like, ‘What kind of life do you want? And is the work you're doing right now helping you build that?’”

In this episode, you’ll learn:
