“Success” with Craig Mod and Elliot Jay Stocks

This time we are going to meet in the morning! My guests will be Craig Mod and Elliot Jay Stocks and we are going to speak about side projects, how we define success of a side project and what failure in this matter means actually. Is success only measurable in financial aspects? Am I failing, if I stop running a side projects? Can side projects lead to unexpected new revenue streams, maybe even years after you are done with a side project? Grab a coffee and join us to find out!

Attention: this is a morning show at 10am CET (Berlin time!)

How to Walk Like a Pro

You may walk, but do you walk successfully? Craig will give you all the tips and tricks needed to walk like a pro, own the walk, embrace the walk, have your life changed by a successful walk!

OK, maybe that’s overstating it. But Craig has done a lot of walking these past few years, and he’ll share his framework for good walking.

How to Be Wildly Unsuccessful

In this very casual and intimate talk, Elliot will look through several of his side projects and businesses — especially the magazines Lagom and 8 Faces — and share behind-the-scenes details on where these projects succeeded and failed, exploring how notions of success — or rather, creative fulfilment — can be found outside of the usual financial metric.
