Man, I really enjoyed this conversation with Brett!

I don’t often share interviews of myself personally, but I thought this one was really special. This is actually part 2 in a continuing series/collaboration between Brett Veinotte of School Sucks Podcast: The END of Public Education, and myself. Part 1 was me interviewing Brett and you can find that here.

In this episode, Brett was supposed to be interviewing me for his audience, but it ended up turning into a lively conversation between the two of us. I enjoyed the heck out of it and so I decided to post it for the Successful Dropout community to enjoy as well.

Brett is such an awesome dude. We talk about everything from religion to budgeting and beyond:

  • What does “living the dream” mean when someone says it with a scowl?
  • Community and accountability through Christianity
  • Shame and judgment through Christianity too
  • The law of attraction!
  • Self-trust: Kylon was an unenclosed child
  • Comfort zones and glamorizing “failure”
  • Confronting resentment towards success
  • Are you the average of the five you spend the most time with?
  • What does success really look like?
  • What is the right balance of contentment and discontentment?
  • Benefits of marriage
  • Using a cash system for personal finance
