Seth Godin On What It Takes To Be An Entrepreneur Way Beyond 2010
Smarter, Faster, Cheaper Entrepreneurship: An Interview With Seth Godin
Seth Godin. The man, the myth, the legend. One of the top marketers of all time, one of my top business heroes and a personal mentor to me (whether he knows it or not) was nice enough to take time today to help all of us entrepreneurs.
Seth is not here to give any of us a step-by-step, paint-by-the-numbers road map, but instead to challenge, inspire and offer some absolutely killer ideas on how you can become an indispensable linchpin.
Plus, he has a cool office.
In this interview:
-Seth’s views on how the business world is changing and how you can become irreplaceable.
-Are you an entrepreneurs or a freelancer? (My FAVORITE point of the interview).
-His thoughts on building a community.
-Are you working or wasting time?
-Why you should not care how Seth creates/works and instead worry about how you create/work.
-Seth mentions a few people in this video. One of them being Venture Capitalist Fred Wilson.
Must Read Books:
Do yourself a favor and pick up all of Seth’s books starting with Linchpin (amazon link) which I finished recently on your Kindle. Great views on the relationship of art, entrepreneurship and the changing world.
Here are five other personal favorites of mine written by Seth (amazon links):

How Does This Help You With Your Business?
In the interview, Seth challenges content providers not to simply ask for thoughts in the comments. Our goal has always been to create a community in our comments on RISE so we can all build amazing businesses with each others help and guidance.
Which begs the question: What tidbit from this interview will help you the most with your business?
