#26: Mindset Lessons From Standup Comedy with Jamarr Johnson

Play Download media

In Episode #10 of Seth Godin's Startup School, he talks about the challenges of being a standup comedian, and how it's exactly the same as what an entrepreneur goes through. Coincidentally, one of our listeners Jamarr Johnson works in New York as a comedian, actor, singer, writer, artist, and handyman. I got him on the show to draw some parallels between his experience and entrepreneurs just starting their E-Commerce stores.
