Bruce Griffin Henderson is an author and the Chief Creative Officer of SmileDirectClub, the next generation oral care company. From touring musician, to author, to cancer survivor — he’s seen a lot and learned even more in his life. Each stop along the way has contributed to his unique perspective on the world, leaving him with an appreciation for the journey and allowing him to de-emphasize the outcome.

What Brett asks:

  • [06:18] Tell me about how the music really grabbed you.
  • [12:10] Was music your calling? Was it necessary to lead you to your calling?
  • [16:10] Have you been able to let go of attachment to outcome?
  • [19:10] Is there something valuable about really letting go?
  • [22:40] You mentioned a life event as a catalyst for change. Can you elaborate on that?
  • [27:23] In hindsight, how do you view the experience of having cancer, and needing to switch careers to get insurance?
  • [34:20] What was it like to be in Austin in the late 70s and early 80s?
  • [41:15] Let’s talk about your writing and your work today.
