63. Marc Stoiber – Feeling Comfortable with Uncomfortability

In this episode, Lance and Marc Stoiber talk about the importance of pushing past your zone of comfort. By sustaining a certain level of discomfort in everything you do, you start to have an affinity toward innovation and unfamiliar territories. He further talks about physical needs and that the less stuff you have, the freer you are.

Marc Stoiber started a career in advertising agency in Hong Kong, Germany, Vancouver, Toronto as writer and creative director. He then left the mainstream advertising to start an ad agency focused on making sustainability sexy. After five years and plenty of hard knocks, he sold the agency and struck out on his own as a consultant. Today he helps CEOs of rising companies express their unique selling proposition and turn it into profit.   

Marc tells listeners: “Everyone has the capacity to be nimble, most of us never give ourselves the opportunity. Try stuff that will take your into the worry-zone. It helps you question.”
