Disrupt Yourself Podcast with Whitney Johnson

Nov 3, 2020

At just 20 years old, Marcus Whitney was a young father with another child on the way. He had dropped out of college, was working as a waiter and living in an efficiency hotel. But as Marcus, a now successful Entrepreneur and Venture Capitalist explains, what you do when your back is against the wall makes all the difference.

Listen as we discuss:

  • Overcoming poverty, depression and past trauma to become a thriving individual and successful entrepreneur.
  • How success can camouflage unaddressed trauma, showing up as Marcus teaches, in the form of some dysfunctional behavior that you probably don’t love about yourself.
  • Marcus' book, Create and Orchestrate, an elegant and fresh business framework applicable across industries. 
  • Honestly evaluating the "ROI" of your educational dollars. 

Marcus Whitney is a self-taught software developer, was the head of technology at Emma Email Marketing, is the co-founder and co-owner of Jumpstart Foundry, one of the most active healthcare venture capital firms in the United States; is the CEO of Health: Further, a healthcare strategic advisory firm; and is co-founder and a part-owner of the Nashville Soccer Club, Nashville, Tennessee’s Major League Soccer Team.
