"With a polo shirt and pliers, you can walk into any computer room.”

One thing you realize as you get deeper into your career is how little the people you think are experts truly know.

Experts don’t have all the answers--often they are figuring things out as they go-- but they bring a deep sense of confidence in their ability to find and apply answers to their work.

Isaac shares his story of figuring this out first hand while installing cables as a sixteen-year-old.

Covered in this episode:

  • Lessons learned installing cables at car dealerships at 16
  • The power of confidence - Responding calmly to chaos
  • Everyone is making it up as they go
  • What “Do you know how to fix it?” really means
  • Confidently learning as you go
