    Should You Embellish Your Success?

    Should You Embellish Your Success?

    Tyler's all healthy again, and Arvid is writing another book. Together, they wonder if they have some sort of "expert-level imposter syndrome." So many influential advice-givers out there have no shame and happily embellish their own stories, yet Tyler and Arvid hesitate to promise even realistic outcomes. You'll find they have a very good reason for that hesitation, and it's a surprising one: intimacy.

    Books, Antibiotics, and Dealing With Social Isolation

    Books, Antibiotics, and Dealing With Social Isolation

    Arvid and Tyler discuss Arvid's recent interest in writing and publishing books, including his potential book on building in public — and how it should be published. Tyler also shares his recent struggles with illness and the outpouring of support he has received after announcing staff reductions at the Calm Company Fund. They both reflect on the value of building in public and the community it creates — and how this community can help entrepreneurs navigate the choppy waters of social isolation. Paul Millerd and Dagobert Renouf get shouted out... a lot.
