In this week’s meeting, Chase Reeves of Fizzle goes through a step four whirlwind sharing facets of his entrepreneurial anxiety & depression, gravitating towards things that show immediate & clearer results, struggling to transition traditional offline behaviors to our new digital identities, and that online and off, we're all rarely ever confident simply being ourselves.

In addition, we discuss how "likes" and "favorites" are a new passive form of communication, how easy access to expert analysis has ruined meaningful discussions with friends & family, whether or not it matters keeping up with the never-ending cycle of current events, how society's greatest creative minds usually know little about the technical details, and in contemplating the meaning of existence, admitting and accepting that life isn't fair.

Hosted by Jordan Cooper.
