About this Episode

Professional wrestler and podcaster Colt Cabana found a sense of belonging in his career and in his life. In this special bonus episode recorded in front of a live audience at Techweek Chicago, we sit down with Colt and discuss how he found his niche.

We explore:

+How to seize opportunities without asking for permission
+Reaching a goal can be achieved through creative means; it is important to think outside the box
+There are many paths to the same goal
+There’s no curtain in anyone’s life
+Use your authentic self but heighten it to maximize your potential
+Don’t be afraid to create your own platform; if there is an audience, there is potential
+Working by trial and error isn’t wrong, rather, it’s effective
+Tweak as you see fit
+Be discretionary and selective when you ask for feedback
+Merging your interests to form one encompassing idea and project maximizes your strengths and enjoyment
+Pigeonholing yourself maximizes risk and minimizes success
+Diversify your projects to create contingency plans for yourself
+Support is built through humility
+Storytelling is integral to finding your niche; rather than telling people your story, invite people to come along the journey with you
+Actively promote your brand to avoid indifference
+Believing in longevity breeds complacency
