More than being the best-selling author of books like Linchpin and Tribes, or the disruptive founder of Squidoo and Yoyodyne, Seth Godin is a teacher of how to live a life beyond the status quo. He once turned down a job offering a billion dollars in equity because he knew it wouldn’t change his life for the better. Seth Godin shares his insights on how to make choices that align with the life you want on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.
