The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett
The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett
Steven Bartlett
A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, living in a studio-flat in a rough area. At 18 I started a company which would eventually become "Social Chain" - an industry leading marketing company. At 26 the company was generating $600m a year in revenue. At 27 I resigned as CEO, and launched 'The Diary Of A CEO' podcast with the simple mission of un-filtering success and giving you the knowledge you need to create the life you want. Thank you for listening. IG: TW: LI:

How do you achieve success in the modern world? This is the billion dollar question. Some people would say that you must gain a whole new variety of skills and knowledge to keep up in our fast moving times.

E230: Simon Sinek: Opens Up About His Struggle with Loneliness, Love, Dating!
What is the greatest way that you can spend your time on earth? Or in other words, what is your 'why'? For too many of us, we answer that question by saying all the things that we hope we will gain and achieve, rather than the ways that we help others and make their life better. As Simon Sinek says, there are entire sections of bookshops dedicated to self-help but none dedicated to helping others, and we aren't taught in school how to listen or the value of being a good friend. In fact, it seems one of the radical acts you can do in the modern world is to live a life of service. In this conversation with Simon at his most vulnerable, he discusses everything from love and relationships, quarter-life crises, and why you should never cry alone. As with every discussion with Simon, this will have you rethinking everything you previously thought you knew.
