You’ll Learn:

  • What made Jay do the unthinkable by leaving his cushy job at Google.
  • The “ah-ha” moment Jay had while as the head of content at HubSpot.
  • The way we think of creativity is wrong. It’s an iterative process, not the muse striking you.
  • Content producers who stick to the facts are at a disadvantage to those who sensationalize. The media needs to change its revenue model so they’re no longer forced to play that game.


3 Key Points:

  1. You as an individual apply who you are to your work is what will matter in the future.
  2. As soon as you get down to the template level you’re one step removed from automation.
  3. Being a critical, creative thinker is the role of people in marketing of the future.
