How do you get the most out of the internet?
When it’s so easy to get lost down useless rabbit holes on YouTube or doomscrolling on Twitter, it’s easy to forget what a miracle the internet is, especially when you actually take advantage of the benefits.
The internet allows you to connect to anyone anywhere. It allows you to share your ideas with the world, to test them and improve them. It enables you to start a business for a global audience and separate your income from your time. Increasingly, people are meeting friends and collaborators online – the list goes on and on.
Visa has spent a lot of time thinking about how to use the internet well and walking the walk as a creator, so he's the perfect guide in this conversation. In this episode, we cover:
- How to reframe your ambition so you can succeed your way
- How to create content that helps people, makes money and connects you to your tribe
- How to market yourself and your work without selling out
We also discuss Visa’s experience growing up as a child of multiple worlds, turning ADHD into a superpower, and the importance of creative scenes like the Golden Age in Ancient Greece and the Renaissance.
Visa is one of the most interesting and unique thinkers I’ve come across online so I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of this conversation.
