Ep 185 – The Spotlight Theory

Ep 185 - The Spotlight Theory

What did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor? A firefighter? An athlete? 

While those visions may have changed over time, sometimes it can be hard to let go of the “perfect plan” you had for your life.

In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, we hear from Kenan Saleh, an American entrepreneur and Head of Lyft Media. 

The Forbes 30 Under 30 recipient shares why giving up cultural and societal influence was an easy choice, why no-one really cares about your failures, and how to let go of the original vision of your life.

Kenan Saleh:

Think back to your last failure, peers. Does it still feel raw? Like everyone is still thinking about it? Now, try to list three failures that your best friend made this year. It’s hard to come up with something, right? 

In today’s Peers2Peers episode, powered by Shopify, we hear from the wise Kenan Saleh, an American entrepreneur, Co-Founder of Halo Care and the current Head of Lyft Media. 

Kenan shares the fascinating and comforting Spotlight Theory of failure (hint, no-one is thinking about your failures as much as you are), why the safe space of the internet shaped his adult life, and the importance of finding meaningful work.
