"Once I get that thing, then I'll be happy" | The Mark Metry Story

5 minutes

In honor of Mark Metry's story being featured in Forbes last week, we're bringing back this conversation with Mark from episode 36.

"Once I get that thing, then I'll be happy."

We know better than to fall for this trap, but we're absolutely CONVINCED that one thing is going to do it for us.

We know this is a fallacy that many others have fallen for... But we "know" it will be different for us. It's going to fix everything.

After Mark Metry hit it big on YouTube with 35K subs and owning the #1 Minecraft server in the world at age 15 (yes, Minecraft), he still wasn't happy even with the inflow of cash these ventures provided.

It took learning from the sour fruits of success - complacency, disillusionment, arrogance - to set the framework for the rest of his life.

And look at him now: Mark hosts the Humans 2.0 Podcast which has been top 100 on iTunes and he's the benevolent dictator of LinkedIn!
