    REWIND: Frederick Hutson - How to succeed when your past decisions limit future potential

    This is a special edition of the OF10podcast - a revisit in honor ofAfroTech 2018 with my guy, Frederick Hutson, who gave another incredible talk at AfroTech 2018 - he also gave a dope talk back at the 2017 event also.

    REWIND: Danielle Leslie - Collect the $$ bag by monetizing your content & expertise through online courses

    REWIND: Danielle Leslie - Collect the $$ bag by monetizing your content & expertise through online courses

    This is a special edition of the OF10podcast - a revisit in honor ofAfroTech 2018 with a guest, Danielle Leslie who had arguably Top 3 talks at AfroTech 2018. What I loved about every time Danielle is on stage or is featured anywhere, she always provides so much value - it’s honestly just better if you record it because its 6 value bombs per minute and if you’re scribbling it down in a notepad, you’re gonna miss 5 of them. I wanted you to hear the gems she also dropped on this episode in case you missed it or just in case you need a refresher.

Made me want to take notes

This review is based on his Jason Mayden podcast. I've been a fan of Jason Mayden after seeing someone post a clip of a talk he did. I was moved. Seeing Will Lucas on Instagram got me curious as to what he did. Seeing as how he was interviewing someone I respected as an authentic leader, there was no resistance to checking it out. First, if you're here to get the typical linear podcast on the interviewee's life then try another spot. On this one Will found interesting ways of asking about the philosophies and systems that Jason uses and follows to guide his life. It was funny, interesting, different and flat out good. Do yourself a favor and him and give it a shot.
