chrisdannenThis episode is squarely in my top 3 favorite episodes ever. Chris Dannen is a progressive thinking writer and consultant who delivers strategy and technical insight to companies who want to grow. Chris was most recently a senior editor at Fast Company where he wrote about technology and innovation. You can now find his work in the pages of Maxim, Wired, and Fast Company.

In this conversation, we covered a lot of ground:
-Life + career design
-Overcoming emotional resistance to achieve goals
-Why you should pursue power, not money, in your career
-The necessity of killing your ego
-The art of being a badass
-The current state of journalism and technology’s impact on it
