The sky is wide enough for all birds to fly without colliding - Yoruba Proverb

The above, a transliteration of a Yoruba proverb, is always true and it came to the fore again this morning.

JRE #1309 happened today, that is, Joe Rogan Experience podcast episode 1309. He hosted Naval Ravikant on the show.

So today, I noticed quite a number of folks on social media raving about Naval, apparently just hearing him for the first time. 

That's okay.

Just like I'd never heard of Joe Rogan until early this year when news broke that the Joe Rogan Experience podcast is now being to listened about 1.5 billion times per year at about $50 - 100M per year in revenue. The news is interesting because, Joe has no middleman nor network, yet he has 100M+ as audience. Independent, you'd say.

Naval is a popular figure in the tech and venture capitalist industry. He already has a large following (of course not up to Joe's).

Soo seeing "Naval newbies" today caught my attention. You can be so big, yet unknown in many quarters. That has nothing to do with your success it's just a reminder that...

The sky is wide enough for all birds to fly without colliding

    Thank you Seun for the introduction to Naval. Thank you for writing about him so frequently over the past few whatever units of time.

    I never checked him out until this moment you wrote about him being on Joe Rogan's podcast, and I've been checking him out ever since.

    @seunoyebode - we were the early birds with Naval no?
    I put him as one of the top few people who have very wise insights about a variety of topics. Someone should create a write up of his podcast notes.

    Thank you for sharing Seun.

      @seunoyebode @keni I guess I would be considered a "Naval newbie" since I have heard of him but was not familiar with his work. Someone once said that Seth Godin speaks in prose, and I think the same can be said of Naval. He is quite an impressive individual. The interview as a whole was excellent, but the last 20 minutes were perhaps the highlight for me. He got me with the Confucius quote: "Every man has two lives and the second starts when he realizes he has just one." I subscribe to the JRE, so I might have eventually found this episode but thanks for bringing it to my attention sooner.
