Live By Design, Not By Default | Building Bacon (Ep 264)

By January 23, 2019No Comments

The third episode of Building Bacon in 2019 is centered around the theme of “Live by design, not by default.” Bacon Sports Founder Rob Cressy give insight into three wins he had last week, including the launch of LaunchingPodcasts.com and overcoming the chatter in his head to attend a networking event. He also does a deep dive into his one loss for the week, which is about his struggle with isolation and loneliness and the process for how to overcome it, plus an update on projects that are going on, the books he’s reading, and the Skillshare classes he took.
