A great talk from Cabel Sasser

“Man,” said Cabel, shaking his head when he stopped by last summer, “I had a ‘John Nack Moment…’”

I was at once flattered & horrified: I’ve become synonymous with something—and that something is total existential breakdown. Damn… was that my special purpose?

I really enjoyed Cabel’s talk about starting small, freaking out vs. selling out, and doing what you love. I think you’ll enjoy it, too. (The big-company sad trombone effect after the 14-minute mark alone is worth it.)

My wife notes, “I like that he rated his own meltdown scene as ’1-star.’”[YouTube]
