#80. Being Brave Enough to Suck at Something New: Master Woodworker and YouTube Star Cam Anderson of Blacktail Studio
Show Notes

Have you ever dreamed of doing something that was entirely new, but  you have no idea how to do it? All too many people don't act on such a dream. It's too different, too difficult. Some people, however, try it. They take the risk and boldly walk into the unknown. 
Cam Anderson is a woodworker doing really interesting things. He makes extraordinarily beautiful tables--thick slabs of wood with gaps filled with resin. He also films himself making these tables, and posts the videos to YouTube. Many, many people watch these videos. The channel has 1.2 million subscribers! In this episode, Cam shares his secrets for getting into something new that feels purposeful.  
In this episode, you'll learn about 

  • Being brave enough to suck at something new
  • Serendipitous input from others
  • Core vs. manifest purpose in life
  • Educating others about their purpose
  • The relationship between ability and purpose
