Did Seth Godin really say this 16 years ago?

Time flies...

I just stumbled upon the above video from Seth in an old private playlist of mine which I have on YouTube.

I remember when it came out, I watched it.

That was 16 years ago!

Mind-blowing... 🤯

Although, time flying by quickly could be explained by the theory that our screen staring lives are causing this time acceleration. I digress...

Seth is an example of one of those names which sprang into prominence through the growth of the internet.

I love his branding, his style, and his marketing advice. And that is why I wanted to share this post with you. If you don't know about him, please take some time out and watch the above video, read this post and check out his courses on Udemy.

Oh and sidenote. About those courses, here's some advice to anyone under 25 who is considering university (aka "college" in the USA). Seriously, for some people, instead of getting into debt by going to university, get a paying job, start compounding your money as soon as you can, and instead do the Udemy courses. They are SO worth the tiny amount of money! And believe me when I scream "That" in itself is a MAJOR self improvement tip that you shouldn't just ignore. In the UK that tip alone is going to save you roughly £30-60k after 3 years of university. Send me a message if you want to discuss, I'm really passionate about this.

Okay, enough delay, let's get going and find out more about Seth and what he's been up to...
Seth Who?

Seth Godin is an American author, marketer, and entrepreneur. He is best known for his books on marketing, including Permission Marketing, Purple Cow, and This Is Marketing. He is also the founder of the altMBA, an online learning program for entrepreneurs.

Godin was born in Mount Vernon, New York, in 1960. He graduated from Tufts University and Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. After working as a marketing consultant, he co-founded Yoyodyne, an Internet-based direct marketing company. Yoyodyne was acquired by Yahoo! in 1998.

Godin is a thought leader in the marketing industry. His ideas about permission marketing, purple cows, and tribes have influenced the way businesses market their products and services. He is also a vocal advocate for social change. He has spoken out on issues such as climate change, gun violence, and inequality.

Here are some of Seth Godin's most famous quotes:

"The only way to win is to stand out."

"Purple cows are not better than other cows. They're just more remarkable."

"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance."

"Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell."

"The best way to predict the future is to create it."

Seth Godin is a force to be reckoned with in the marketing industry. His work is both thought-provoking and actionable. If you're looking for inspiration or guidance on how to market your products or services, I highly recommend checking out his books, blog, or podcast.
