What was your first dream that felt big? The first time you set your eyes on something and thought, ‘I’d like to strive for that.’ Or, on the flip side, ‘I’m not accepting the status quo anymore, something needs to change.’ You were probably young, and though the motives may have not been entirely clear to you, it was a moment of stepping up and claiming your authority; of claiming the next best version of you.

Olatunde Sobomehin is the co-author of the book Creative Hustle, and the CEO at StreetCode Academy, a community-based tech ecosystem that’s preparing the next generation of underrepresented tech leaders with everything from basic computing to virtual reality.

Olatunde reads two pages from ‘The Life We’re Looking For’ by Andy Crouch. [reading begins at 17:45]

  • “I grew up in an environment where you could believe in the impossible.” [2:13]

  • How to start betting on your gifts. [8:48]
  • Dealing with resistance: “Holding onto your principles in moments of resistance is what keeps you grounded.” [12:05]

  • The power of a shift in mindset. [27:38]
