  • 16. How To Make Tough Decisions with Catherine Ulrich, Managing Director, FirstMark Capital

    14/06/2018 Duración: 01h12s

    At the end of every decision is an outcome, every single time. But sometimes we don’t have enough time or information, so how can you make smart decisions to create your desired outcome? We may often find ourselves consumed with decision fatigue because we are afraid of the consequences of making the wrong choice. Other times, the product of our actions feels so far away that we cannot even begin to fathom how to make the right decision. Instead of obsessing over finding the right answer, today’s guest, Catherine Ulrich, encourages us to start by asking “Who do I want to be?” and taking a long hard look at all of the outcomes, especially the less desirable ones. This isn’t to prepare for the worst, but rather, to assess the worst-case scenario in detail to stop it from having any reign over our lives at this moment. When we keep the different possibilities in mind, we always know what we’re walking into and how to behave accordingly. At the end of the day, our energy dictates our thoughts and feelings. I

    I often speak about the importance of self-reflection, but is there a point where we become overexposed to ourselves? Today’s guest, Alex Wolf, founder of Boss Babe, unloads a cathartic insight on social media and the exposure that comes along with it. The pros to social media can be great.

However, at what point do we spend too much time focusing on our own image and not enough time focusing on our lives? Alex exposes the cons of societies’ overexposure to ourselves through social media and the pressure it can bring. Like her new novel, Resonate , Alex explores how social media can be used by young entrepreneurs to build their brand while sharing insight on the mindset needed to maintain such a brand.

    10/05/2018 Duración: 01h05min

    What if someone told you there were no right or wrong answers, only right questions? We are often trying to chase the “right answer” without defining what the right answer is. Without setting that fundamental definition of success, we will continue chasing a vague idea that doesn’t look like much of anything. This is why we need to ask ourselves the right questions, the questions that ultimately lead us in the right directions. “What are you doing?” “Why do you want certain things?” These questions allow us to be introspective and the answers to these questions can change, allowing us to grow in different directions. Today’s guest, Jeff Madoff is founder and CEO of Madoff Productions. He is an American director, photographer, writer and professor living in New York City . His film and video work include commercials, web content, music videos and documentaries for various clients such as Ralph Lauren and Victoria’s Secret.
