EP 02: Success Outside the Box and Playing Your Own Game with Randy Massengale

Published on: 24th February, 2020

Where do we get our definition of success from, and how often do we challenge it? Growing and achieving within the walls you’ve been taught to surround yourself with is tempting – but what you find when you break through and begin to create as only you can will take you further than you ever imagined. 

Randy Massengale is an educator and coach who devotes his days to helping entrepreneurs and business owners achieve with strategies, philosophies and habits that work for their unique blend of creativity and expertise. He has contributed his genius to giants like Intel and Microsoft, and remains a prolific reader with a love of self-educating.

On this episode of the Rigging the Game podcast, Dan and Randy break down the reasons why mentorship is vital to your success, I-shaped people versus T-shaped people, and the art of staying in your lane. Listen in to start growing on your own terms.

Favorite Quote

“I bring back the creativity as a coach, I'm trying to bring back the creativity and then have you do it within context. You may do it within the financial world. Someone else may do it within technology. Someone else may do it within fashion, but there's still this creativity that we want to bring to bear on it rather than we just reinforce rules all the time.”

Painful shyness intersecting with an insatiable desire to compete (and WIN) birthed a relentless curiosity to understand how to massively win at business and confront fears without conforming to a set blueprint.

This show is for the purpose-driven entrepreneur who recognizes that the cliché, cookie cutter, and conventional recommendations about finance and business don’t work because they’re playing a different game.

As a painfully shy kid, I often found myself on the sidelines quietly observing the game of sports, life and business until the flames of competitiveness grew to a bonfire and took over. From the ashes, birthed a relentless curiosity and drive to understand how to massively win at business and confront my fears without conforming to a set blueprint.
