How to Think, Do, and Say Your Great Work With Ron Tite | UYGW058
Have you ever met anyone who seems effortlessly innovative or full of great ideas? If you have, you may have met a border-dweller. A border dweller is a term from sociology that refers to people who live close to a border between countries and experience a culture that reflects a both countries. In psychology, we borrow that term to refer to people who see connections between seemingly unconnected fields. Ron Tite is a classic border dweller. Whether he’s bringing entrepreneurial ideas into comedy or finding the common thread between content and advertising, Ron has his eye on innovation.
Join us as we discuss:
· How to build trust in a crowded and noisy world
· How Ron has built a public speaking career by going from being a comedian who knows business into a funny business guy.
· How Ron sees the difference between pure art and Great Work
