Ever wonder what Jeff Goins and Leonardo da Vinci have in common? Jeff calls it the Portfolio Life, and it's nothing so simple as where you invest your money. Instead, it's where you invest your money, your time, and your life. Today, Jeff and Danny talk about how the shift in the business world has freed us from the jobs of 'robots,' what that means for you and your future, and how to be your own 'patron.' This is the idea that your business can and should sustain your art, whatever your art may be. Key Points At 5:00 - Jeff blows the notion of long term job security out of the water, and explains what is taking its place.
