About this Episode

For this episode, Rob and I interviewed Jason Silver. He’s a startup advisor and his new book, “Quietly Crushing It” is coming out in Summer 2024. We talked about:

  • Finding joy in doing the hard things - while you deliver MORE (not less) value
  • Why your dream job is not something you “win,” it’s a practice
  • How to add agency to everything you do as a leader
  • Assumptions about sales - what it is and what’s it’s not
  • Feedback: the good, the bad, and the ugly
  • A simple strategy that’ll drastically reduce your decision-making stress
  • How to persuade people to change their mindset
  • Why “what do you think?” can be a terrible question
  • The importance of gratitude

This was an assumption-challenging conversation - even for us! Enjoy applying its valuable lessons
