The Duct Tape Marketing Podcast with John Jantsch

(image) In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interviewed Will Cady, Reddit‘s Global Brand Ambassador and founding Head of Karma Lab – a team of best-in-class creative and strategic minds, backed by media, marketing and ad industry experience that make them uniquely positioned to guide and collaborate with brands as they find their home on Reddit and around internet culture. Will’s unique background combines mysticism, marketing, and making, creating a rich tapestry of insights for navigating the world of creativity. His latest book ‘Which way is North?‘ outlines seven directions, which help professionals divide their inner world into different experiences through meditation to convert anxiety into action.

Key Takeaways

Embark on a transformative journey through the seven directions, strategically open-ended questions designed to unlock creativity at the intersection of mysticism, marketing, and making. Will Cady shares insights on turning anxiety into a catalyst for innovation, the power of divergent thinking in strategic questions, and the integration of head and heart in the creative process. The episode explores the normalization of meditation and its potential to unlock human potential, offering a comprehensive roadmap for navigating the dynamic landscape of creativity and self-discovery. Tune in for practical tips and valuable insights into building a people-centric culture in the ever-evolving dynamics of work and creativity.
