We are very very pleased to bring you part 1 of our conversation with Ryan Deiss, CEO of Digital Marketer, co-founder of Idea Incubator LP, speaker, loving husband, and father of four.
We start the show by learning that while Ryan Deiss is a famous and sought after speaker, that was not his goal. He is protective of his personal life and has learned to keep his business self and personal self separate. He sometimes feels conflict about this as he knows the value of social media and presenting himself publicly for his professional endeavors.
Ryan Deiss has given this a ton of thought (even wishing at times he had gone in under a pseudonym) and shares some of his thoughts on keeping his professional self separate from his personal self. He even shares a story about a weirdo who found his home phone number and called his wife!
After a bit of time down tangent road, we come back around and hear Ryan Deiss's thoughts on Utopia. His vision is the ability to choose. He has tried living the leisurely life, and after a week or two he's going crazy and needs to get back to work. The true heart of it is being able to choose to work now, or read quietly, or attend a tennis match of his child, or meet a client.
