Skip Prichard is the President and CEO of OCLC, award winning blogger and the author of The Book of Mistakes: 9 Secrets to Creating a Successful Future. As a lifelong student of what makes people successful, he’s interviewed over a thousand leaders, influencers, and notable people to talk to them about their lives. In the process of having so many conversations, Skip noticed that there were some similarities to the things that these successful people were doing, believing, saying, and living.

In this interview, Skip Prichard and I talk about:

  • His childhood, and his early start as an entrepreneur, selling things at school to classmates in grade school
  • Being a CEO of OCLC, a library tech company
  • His creative process in crafting “The Book of Mistakes,” and how he created the format for it
  • The first mistake, from “The Book of Mistakes;” Don’t work on someone else’s dream
  • How to make your current reality or situation better for yourself
  • Filtering the shoulds that come into our lives
  • The impact of kindness on people
  • The choice to “respond or react,” and how his wife’s battle with cancer exemplified a beautiful choice to respond and embody joy
  • Entrepreneurship as a spiritual practice
  • That people buy you before they buy your service, and the importance of knowing yourself well as a business owner
  • Three ways to jump start your joy: daily gratitude, creating margin or space in your days, living your unique purpose
