Tweetable Quotes

“I think I read some stat recently that per capita more Canadians listen to podcasts than Americans do now.” (09:58) (Jeremy)

“It’s interesting when I look back at especially my lack of a corporate career history, I’m very aware of both the pros and cons. A lot of people I’ve talked to get conditioned where it’s very hard to go off on your own path because you’ve just worked so long in a structure. I didn’t have any of that baggage, but one of the interesting things that I’ve always thought is that everyone has some sort of Imposter Syndrome. But I don’t know that you can get to this without going through it.” (27:31) (Jeremy)

“You hear a lot of people who write regularly talk about how writing really clarifies your own thinking. That, for me, was the case where I thought, ‘At this point, I don’t even care if anybody ever reads anything I write. It’s so valuable to me personally just to keep writing because it was structuring my thoughts.’” (35:37) (Jeremy)

“I tend to skew to the philosophical, higher-level strategy side of things than tactical side. But, I’ve also recognized that it’s a lot harder to market and sell vague, philosophical things even if there’s value to it and people like it.” (43:56) (Jeremy)

“I think a lot of times it actually comes back to how specific you are about the person that you’re actually trying to reach. Everybody, I’m sure who’s listened to hundreds of episodes of your shows, has heard before that if you create a show for everybody, it’s for nobody. We don’t want to believe that, but it’s the truth.” (55:32) (Jeremy)

“For many audiences and many niches, the narrower you go, the more you can potentially charge sponsors. And, people don’t really think of it that way.” (1:05:48) (Jeremy)
