No One Is Stopping You. How to Start Living Now.

The video below is taken from an interview that Motley Fool analyst Brendan Byrnes recently had with Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception. Godin is also a talented public speaker, marketing guru, blogger, entrepreneur, and respected thought leader.

Seth's forward-thinking and contrarian views are critical considerations for finding success in life, business, and investing.

It's the same approach our own chief investment officer, Andy Cross, took when selecting The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2013. I invite you to uncover his market-beating thinking in this new free report. Just click here now for instant access. 


Brendan Byrnes: How do people take this new approach, being a little bit more risky, doing what you actually want to do, and apply it to their life?

Seth Godin: Once you understand you don't have to get picked, once you understand that we don't work in factories anymore, you don't have to own a building to make a thing...

You look at someone like Blake, who runs Toms Shoes. Lots of people have seen Toms Shoes, and he's ended up giving shoes to millions of people, but he only needs a laptop to run the whole business. It's the connecting part that creates value, not the stitching stuff with a piece of thread.

Given that anyone who's watching this right now has a connection to the Internet, which means you have a connection to a billion people. If you want to sing, sing. If you want to dance, dance. If you want to put something into the world, go ahead and do it.

You don't have to watch some other analyst on TV. You can be the analyst on TV. Make your own YouTube channel. No one's stopping you.
