    Tiago Forte (Ep.52): The privilege of sharing knowledge

    Tiago Forte (Ep.52): The privilege of sharing knowledge

    Our first guest Tiago Forte returns to close out the first season of Rad Awakenings. Tiago's the founder of Forte Labs, an education company focused on productivity and learning. He believes that technology has fundamentally changed the way we work - as entrepreneurs or as knowledge workers. With new multi-billion dollar industries being created each year, there are countless opportunities to create new "lanes" of expertise and ultimately "product-ize" that knowledge. This is a pragmatic conversation where he breaks down how to identify these new pockets of opportunity, become a full-stack freelancer, and create a distributed digital company - all because sharing knowledge is one of life's greatest privileges.

    April Rinne (Ep.51): How to prototype and iterate an independent career

    April Rinne (Ep.51): How to prototype and iterate an independent career

    April Rinne cannot be described with simple labels. She helps companies, policy makers, and non-profits navigate the new economy. She's a global citizen, having visited over 100 countries in her lifetime and a "career portfolioist." And while she works for herself, don't for a second think that this limits the scope of her work: she's a strategist, start-up advisor, and a World Economic Forum Young Leader who's unafraid to tackle thorny questions. April's life has been deeply influenced by her parents who died in a car accident when she was in her 20s. She lives their values of gratitude, adventure, and financial autonomy by constantly reinventing herself and her career and blazing her own trail each and every day.

    Sergio Brown (Ep.50): From the gridiron to Google

    Sergio Brown (Ep.50): From the gridiron to Google

    Sergio Brown played high school basketball with Derrick Rose, was coached by Bill Belichick in the NFL, has two degrees, and has worked at Google. Despite barely playing football in high school, Sergio learned the ins and outs of the game at Norte Dame and ultimately joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent. We discuss his 8 year career in the NFL, the glamor of game day, the physical toll on his body and the transitory life bouncing from team to team. And on current NFL issues, he shares his thoughts on kneeling during the anthem and if he'd let his future son play because of concussions. But an NFL career can only last so long, imagine the loss of identity when you go from being an NFL player to a former NFL player. So with his body pretty much intact, he started his next act, at Google.

    Sarah Peck (Ep.49): Ask yourself, does it have to look this way?

    Sarah Peck (Ep.49): Ask yourself, does it have to look this way?

    Corporate jobs and Sarah Peck do not mesh well - being slouched in front of a laptop under fluorescent lighting isn't her idea of a career. Sarah's mantra has always been: You don't have to do things the way they're always done. To give herself career options, she started a blog as a side hustle and within 3 years it was generating $30k. That, in combination with a minimalist lifestyle gave her the confidence to quit. Her career is now “a collection of projects” - she's a writer, a startup advisor, yoga teacher and podcast host. She shares a DIY playbook to create, market, and sell digital products and her thoughts on credentialing and expertise in the digital age. We look at the work required to achieve diversity both in our networks and our ideas, and what her podcast, Startup Pregnant, can teach us about productivity, prioritization, and professional growth from bad ass new moms who are also entrepreneurs.

    Scott Norton (Ep.48): Contentment is so damn elusive

    Scott Norton (Ep.48): Contentment is so damn elusive

    Scott Norton is your prototypical millennial - a tinkerer with a creative and entrepreneurial streak . There's a narrative that the financial crisis crushed economic mobility for an entire generation of Millennials - in fact, Scott's first job was at Lehman Brothers in 2008. Yet for Scott, the crisis catalyzed a trip around Asia on a foldable bike spanning 23 countries and 100 cities. Upon his return he co-founded Sir Kensington's, challenging the consumer goods "complex" of ketchup and mayonnaise. We explore mission-driven businesses - are they marketing hype or changing the world? Regardless, big business has taken to the idea; last year Unilever acquired them for a pretty penny. Scott's got the belt notches: he's a touch above 30 with a spectacular exit.  How does this change someone? For sure, it takes failure off the table. But contentment, being present with loved ones, a quiet mind, and yes - even freedom - don't appear overnight and can remain viscerally elusive.
