    Y is for Youth: A Conversation with Jadon Brooks

    Y is for Youth: A Conversation with Jadon Brooks

    Jadon Brooks is off to a good start: At 13, he's already engaged in 3 different business ventures with no plans to stop any time soon. If you think I'm kidding, check out his fitness Instagram!


    Despite all that flex, Jadon is a very humble young one with plenty to teach, which made him a perfect person to talk with for this episode, "Y is for Youth".  I learned a lot of what I need to do next just from talking to this smart kid!


    I met Jadon through his dad Kip Brooks, whom I had a conversation with in Season 2's first episode, "A is for Anxiety", where we discussed how he overcame his own anxiety issues that were rooted in past tragedies, and created a service to help others do the same.  So it's fitting that as this season ends, Jadon will teach us about how you can allow youth to inspire you as a leader.

    W is for Worry

    W is for Worry

    Do you find yourself worrying excessively over your leadership responsibilities? Are you tired of people telling you "don't worry" without trying to understand why you're worrying?


    This episode may not be the one you WANT to hear, but it is the one you NEED to hear.


    I'll tell you why you can stop worrying and instead what you can do to demonstrate the valid concern you need to get everyone on board so that you can solve future problems before they start. You can do this without giving into excessive worry and making those around you paranoid about the future!


    Mentioned in this episode: 


    - why worrying doesn't equate caring


    -  how the extreme opposite of worry lead to the The Fyre Festival saga


    - How to demonstrate careful concern
