  • 11 Reasons Not to Become Famous

“If you’re interested in building a large audience to become rich and famous, some warnings and recommendations are in order. If you’re interested in building a large audience you also truly care about and with whom you are vulnerable, even more precautionary tales are in order.”


  • Why Trying Too Hard Can Be Counterproductive

“If we can overcome the instinct to get in our own way and be more comfortable trusting in our innate abilities, the results may well be surprising.”
