Taylor writes about topics like creativity, writing, personal growth, and his articles are always verging on philosophical yet scattered with wit. Which, is why I love reading his stuff.
In this episode, he tells me about his experience at a Meditation retreat. We talk about the healing power of out-of-body experiences, our modern detachment from mythology, and the power of storytelling. He also shares his career journey and we find common ground in our belief that working in traditionally blue-collar roles can be a great predictor of career success.
