I’m joined this time by Noah Kagan. He runs several companies and we got into how he is able to do that and still live a great life outside of work. We talked about goal setting and his unique systems for achieving goals, what his daily routine looks like and he shares his top-down approach to productivity.
This was one of my transparent interviews because we also talked a lot about our own failures and what we learned from them.
