Izzy Swan is an incredibly prolific person. Between furniture design, a truly prolific array of YouTube videos, and spending time with his children, Izzy still considers himself “as retired as he’s going to get.” Izzy found success by forging his own path. He has emerged as a prominent figure in the maker community with a reputation for creative problem solving and playful designs. Listen to our conversation with Izzy as we discuss:

  • Having children and maintaining playfulness
  • Finding one’s place in the world
  • Not finishing college
  • Enjoying what you do: The right job versus the right people
  • Prioritizing happiness over wealth
  • Problem-solving and creativity
  • Learning from frustration
  • The importance of growing community
