138 From employee to entrepreneur with Steve Glaveski

Technology is enabling more and more thought leaders to turn their knowledge, expertise, ideas and insights into bona fide businesses. 

Often times they’re making the jump from the corporate cubicle into full-blown entrepreneurship. And it can be scary!

In this episode, I chat with Steve Glaveski who is the author of the newly-released book, Employee to Entrepreneur, and host of the long-running podcast, Future Squared.

In this wide-ranging chat, Steve chats about:

  • the importance of playing ‘offence’
  • avoid ‘analysis paralysis’ by experimenting quickly
  • persistence and patience will trump everything: not taking ‘no’ for an answer
  • the importance of getting 1% better every day
  • productivity, and why we’re 5 times more effective when we’re ‘in flow’ (optimal state aka ‘deep work’)
  • the process of writing his new book Employee to Entrepreneur  (50,000 words in 10 days!)
  • what it takes to get an article published in Harvard Business Review (after 18 months of trying!)
  • how to use content to differentiate yourself from the also-rans
  • leveraging partners’ connections with journalists to get into the media
  • luck plays a role in entrepreneurial success, but you still need to do the work!
