The Worst Career Choice I Ever Made

2/10/2021
What’s the worst career choice you ever made? I remember when I was younger, everybody told me not to move to San Francisco. They said I couldn’t afford to live there, that I didn’t know anything about speaking, and that I was a terrible writer and couldn’t write a book. People would say that I should be a lawyer or a doctor, that I should do this or that. And I spent a lot of my life listening to other people and trying to fit into somebody else's mold.

Leaders Are Lighthouses

Leaders need to become lighthouses. Why? A lighthouse is something that shines light into a sea of uncertainty. It guides other people so they don’t hit rocks and can find their way back home. But as a lighthouse, you need to remember that without ships in the water, you're not very valuable. It means you should always guide other people.

Implementing a Customer First Mentality

I love the way my wife Blake Morgan talks about customer experience. She says that we need to figure out how we can make our customers’ lives easier, even if that means our lives get a little bit harder. But what happens in most organizations is the exact opposite.
