Flying Closer to the Sun with Seth Godin

A few months ago, I sent out a newsletter titled "Why I haven't interviewed Seth Godin: My Confrontation with the Lizard Brain."  Then many of you emailed me back and told me to get over it and email Seth. It took me a few weeks, but I finally did. As expected, he was full of  insights that I think will have a profound impact on the way we approach our work. I hope you all fly closer to the sun in 2013. And now let's kick off Season 4 of BlogcastFM with Seth:
