    Rep. Max Rose’s Entrepreneurial Take on Politics

    Rep. Max Rose’s Entrepreneurial Take on Politics

    Max Rose is not your typical politician. He speaks like a real person, says what he thinks, and thinks more like an entrepreneur than a politico. After serving one term, Max narrowly lost a tight race for reelection, but he’s back to give it another shot. On this week’s FOMO Sapiens, we feature part one of our two-episode discussion with Rep. Rose. You’ll find out how Max sees politics and how his background in the military influences his vision for government and service.

    Todd Kashdan on the Art of Insubordination.

    Todd Kashdan on the Art of Insubordination.

    Long live the rebels! But even though we admire rebels, so many people are wired (and taught) to be rule followers. As a result, they struggle to go against the flow. But sometimes you need to do exactly that to achieve escape velocity in life and in business. On this week’s FOMO Sapiens, we meet Todd Kashdan, the author of The Art of Insubordination. In our conversation, Todd explains why it’s so hard to be insubordinate. He also lays out how you can choose a path of principled rebellion to rebel productively while making sure that you don’t just make an enemy of everyone. Finally, he will share some key strategies for how you can be a constructive rebel every day in your daily life.
