Thought leader Seth Godin joins Daniel for a conversation about human nature and how it relates to business marketing. Four years ago, Daniel sent Seth one of his popular articles, and asked him for advice on how to make his next piece go viral. Seth responded with “Don’t worry about viral, write something more meaningful.” Seth is the author of 18 best-selling books, and the creator of the altMBA program.
