114. Jason Feifer: Learn how to Build for Tomorrow, with Editor-in-Chief at Entrepreneur Magazine
Show Notes

My guest today is Jason Feifer. Jason is the opposite of a one trick pony. He’s a multi-hyphenate: Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur magazine, podcast host, book author, keynote speaker, startup advisor, and my personal favourite: non-stop optimism machine. In this episode, we are going to learn about Jason’s journey to, I know this is going to sound cliché and click-bait-y… embracing change. Because as much as we all know it’s important to understand and accept change, not a lot of us like it, let alone thrive in change. Fret not, Jason is here to show us how. 

We cover a LOT during this conversation, such as:

- Jason's career pre-Entrepreneur Media. In fact, we talk about his study choices during college and whether it was obvious to him from an early age that he was meant to be a journalist.  

- How Jason pitched dozens of magazines and how one landed at Washington Post

- Jason's time at small and large media houses: Men’s Health, Fast Company, Maxim Magazine etc. and whether there's one position that massively influenced how he shows up in the world today 

- Of course, we talk about about Entrepreneur magazine. What was the company like back in 2015? How did Jason get hired there and what helped him get from Executive Editor to Editor in Chief in a very short time (one year)?

- I geek out with Jason on a couple of chapters of his book to simplify the takeaways for you, whether you want to grow your career or company, or both. 

- Jason has met with and interviewed so many famous people Jason: Ryan Reynolds, Gary Vaynerchuk, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jimmy Fallon, etc. Which interview went surprisingly different from what he expected and what did he learn from the experience?

 - Jason's advice for someone who's in a career transition and how to best make the most of the situation, while being practical and aware of the day to day needs.
