“The interesting jobs are the ones that you make up.” – Chris Young
Chris Young is an obsessive tinkerer, inventor, and innovator.
His areas of expertise range from extreme aviation (world-record goals) to mathematics and apocalyptic-scale BBQs. Above all, he is one of the clearest thinkers I know.
- How he managed to get jobs working for the best in the world…despite having no credentials.
- Advice — and incredible questions — from self-made billionaires.
- Why raw foodism isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.
- How geniuses show disappointment and ensure you correct yourself.
- The “emoji egg” breakfast.
- And much more…
If you only have 5 minutes, I highly recommend listening to Chris’s secret to working with hard-to-reach people.
