Our guest today says “never take advice from a cartoonist.” So today we’re going to take advice from a cartoonist. But, in all fairness, our guest is no ordinary cartoonist, he’s the creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams. We’re chatting a bit about Dilbert and diving into Scott’s latest book, How To Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big. I guarantee you’ll gain a different perspective about failure and learn a bit about happiness as well!
Scott is the creator of the Dilbert comic strip that is published daily in more than two-thousand newspapers worldwide, as well as on Dilbert.com, and all over the Internet. Dilbert launched in 1989 and spawned hundreds of licensed products and an animated television show. Over 20 million Dilbert books and calendars have sold worldwide.
Scott has been a banker, software developer, technologist, hypnotist, CEO of Scott Adams Foods, owner of two restaurants, inventor, investor, TV executive producer, author, cartoonist, speaker, and serial entrepreneur.
He is one of the most highly-sought speakers in America and has written nine books, including the number one best-seller The Dilbert Principle. He also writes the Scott Adams Blog and is also co-founder of WhenHub.com and the WhenHub app.
“What causes happiness is not where you are but the direction your life is going.”
– Scott Adams
