“As I started going into the nonfiction concept I found a number of different things. One, I felt preachy and I don’t like sitting within a community and saying, I know this and you don’t. And, you know, I’ve always just liked to collaborate. And so as I started getting into the nonfiction side of this, that didn’t feel right. And I wanted to start adding some pretend almost parable to it.” (04:21)

“I kind of live life off of what I call objective and key results, right? Set your objectives. What do you expect the key results to be? And then what are the milestones in between that allow for those key results to happen within the timeframe that you need them to happen? Right. And so that’s something that we apply in business and I’ve certainly applied it to this project.” (12:24)

“And, you know, I, it’s interesting going through this process. What’s also come about it is now that we’re, you know, we’ve got this fictional book done. And we just launched the podcast. We have our first episode out there and the next, our first guest records tomorrow. We’re excited about that and we’ll grow that.” (20:58)
