I thought Seth was a genius
I thought Seth was a genius until he done an episode on ‘genius’ on his other podcast Akimbo. Either way this is incredible content!!!
It just makes sense
Seth speaks in a Language that is understood by all who listen. Simplicity.
Unusual, but effective format
Very much enjoyed being a fly on the wall in Robin's experimental start-up classes. His insights and stories are applicable to all kinds of business ideas.
Thanks Godin - will you post more of the recordings from the three days?
