AOC 2 - Starting a School, Writing a Book in 8 days, and Executing with Josh Long

Josh enjoyed years of building his skills in business and design. He worked with his father, IDEO, and Burt's Bees. From not reading a book until he was 20, Josh made up for that by reading 3 a week. Then he wrote 3 of his own last year. Josh wrote the latest, Execute, in 8 days (and scrapped the first draft 5 days in...). Joining forces with Sarah Parmenter, the two of them posted a new interview of influencers in design every Monday for over a year.

Last year, Josh spent the summer working with Seth Godin during Seth's summer internship. Following that experience, Josh realized he had all the skills he needed to start his own school. Within 2 months and dozens of conversations with Seth, Patterns school was a beautiful, physical space in Wilmington, NC.

Join us on a journey into the life and mind of a true change maker.
