A long-time digital veteran and pioneer, Ted Rubin has worked for some of the most prestigious brands in sales and marketing leadership and has authored several best-selling books including “Return on Relationship.”

Key Reinvention Take-Aways from Ted’s Interview:

  • Be careful about looking back too much. Learn from your mistakes, but try not to second guess yourself too much.
  • Surround yourself with friends you trust. Having a community will give you power.
  • Some friends will be for when you just need someone to listen and offer comfort; some will be for when you need advice. Associate with people who will drag you out of your discomfort zone.
  • Model yourself after people you admire.
  • To reinvent: (1) Ask why aren’t you happy, why do I want to reinvent? (2) What are you passionate about — can you make it a career? (3) Once you make the decision to do it, go for it. ¬†Stop worrying about the perfect plan. Try things and get immediate feedback (which you can do easily these days through social media).
  • His biggest mistake: ¬†Giving up too soon and letting too much time go by before trying again.
