How to Make a Living Doing Something You Care About with Kevin Kelly of Wired

Kevin Kelly is most known for co-founding Wired in 1993. He has written a lot of great books, cofounded all Species Foundation, a non-profit aimed at identifying every living species on Earth as well as Rosetta Project, which is building an archive of all documented human languages.

Some questions I ask:

  • Is it possible to make a living from every single niche out there?
  • How to build up 1,000 true fans?
  • How many “true fans” Wired magazine has?
  • What’s the future of online businesses?
  • What advice would you give to people who want to start an online hustle?

Things we talk about:

  • 1000 true fans theory
  • Strategies and tactics that were used in the beginning to grow Wired magazine
  • Getting a job versus taking an alternative path such as traveling the world
  • The importance of taking time off and embracing the slack 
  • Being content with losing it all
  • Advice on starting an online hustle
