How do you find your calling? How do you focus to follow it? On the Love Your Work podcast, now with over half a million downloads, I interview entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, authors, and startup founders who have carved out success by their own definition.
How did they turn setbacks into opportunities? How did they discover their passion? How did they overcome doubt and emotional obstacles? I dig into all of this and more, trying to crack the code for fulfilling work. Whether you’re looking for an entrepreneurship podcast, a solopreneurship podcast, or a productivity podcast to boost your creativity, Love Your Work is for you.
A podcast with interviews of the most original entrepreneurs, and creators
Libryia Jones (@wanderwomanic) has made it easier for people to have the experience of living in different places. Last year, she organized a trip for her and and more than thirty others to spend a year on the road. They lived in places like Prague, Cape Town, and my personal favorite, Medellín.
The past several years, I’ve been really fascinated with optimizing creative output. It all started when I wrote my first book, Design for Hackers. I had been creative on command working as a professional designer, but when it came time to write a book, it was harder than ever.

About two years ago, I was on a retreat in Mexico with some friends. We were each exploring what we wanted to do in our lives and careers. It took all week for me to admit it to myself: I wanted to double down on being a creator. I wanted to have conversations on this podcast, read books, and write books.
Ten years ago, I met Rob Hunter (@vegashacker) in a cafe. Well, I met him on Craigslist, really, but then we met in person in a cafe. We had both left our jobs at the same time. We were both determined to make it on our own.
