Jonathan Kuuskoski is the Director of Entrepreneurship and Community Programs at the University of Missouri and is one of the brightest people I have ever spoken.

This conversation is packed full of information. I found myself pausing it a lot on my relisten to process everything he was saying.

Topics Covered:

  • How becoming a successful artist is contingent on creating a community that is based on reciprocal value
  • How he was able to take a year to create his current position at Mizzou based on the specific needs of the community and the pre-existing assets of the school
  • On the current state of academia particularly in relation to the arts
  • The importance of getting into the Build->Measure->Learn feedback loop as quickly as possible
  • The power of huge, audacious goals
