Hi there. I'm here, checking in. $2 baby! Cha-ching
I'm currently in Los Angeles, though I live in Ann Arbor MI. My name is Steven and I am... gulp... 41 years old. I am the CEO of Forever Labs.
Funny you mention "role and purpose." When I interview candidates I always reference Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose a concept from Dan Pink's book "Drive." He essentially hypothesizes that everyone needs these 3 things in their professional lives. Purpose is the big one, imo.
What is mine? My purpose is to build and make things. I love making things. A company, a family, a song, a podcast, a Hubski, etc. I like being different than others. I like that I can point to a LOT of things that I have made in my life. Not everyone can do that. I think that's sad. So much time is wasted.
Anyways, I am also way older than most that will read this and I can attest to the FACT that lil is infinitely cool.
Love you, lil.
FWIW, I found and read this post AFTER I posted this:
