About three years ago, I made a discovery that changed the course of my career and life. I’ve been working many different jobs since I was 17. I also studied business and marketing, getting a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. In 2010, I started my first business. I acquired many different skills. And when I started my blog in 2015, I could use them to make an impact. When I read How To Fail At Almost Everything and Still Win Big by Scott Adams (, I understood why that was. He calls this concept Talent Stacking (I don’t like the word talent because it implies nature, I prefer skill because it implies nurture), and writes: “Successwise, you’re better off being good at two complementary skills than being excellent at one.” On this podcast, I talk about WHICH skills I think are most important.
