#1: Impossible, with Joel Runyon

As I've been hinting at for a few weeks, I'm happy to announce the launch of the new podcast for Pocket Changed. The Cubicle Renegade Podcast: Where Unfulfilled Desk Jockeys Become Fearless Entrepreneurs.

On the show I'll be featuring current entrepreneurs, corporate escapees, and world changers who are successfully building businesses that matter.

In this inaugural session of the Cubicle Renegade Podcast I sit down to talk with Joel Runyon, author of The Blog of Impossible Things and the founder of ImpossibleHQ.

We discuss everything from whether or not you should do work based on your passion, why you should wait to release the first product on your blog, and how choosing a niche might actually be the worst way to stand out online.
