I’m David Kadavy. I’m an author, podcaster, and self-publishing coach. I believe one of the biggest challenges we face in the age of AI is the ability for humans to tap into their innate creativity.
So, I explore how to make something when you don’t know what you’re making, how to get the courage to do things that might not work, and how to find that one thing that only you can do for the world.
My books include Mind Management, Not Time Management, The Heart to Start: Stop Procrastinating & Start Creating, Design for Hackers (which debuted in the top 20 on all of Amazon), and multiple “short reads”.
On my weekly podcast, Love Your Work, I’ve learned from entrepreneurs, creators, and experts such as James Altucher, Dan Ariely, John Bokenkamp, Adam Conover, B.J. Fogg, Jason Fried, Seth Godin, Noah Kagan, Joanna Penn, Laura Roeder, Tynan, Vanessa Van Edwards, Cy Wakeman, and many more.
On my weekly Love Mondays newsletter, I share the very best gems I’ve learned on how to make it as a creator.
I’ve spoken in eight countries, and my writing has been featured in Observer, The Huffington Post, Inc.com, Quartz, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Upworthy, and Lifehacker.
In my past career as a designer, my work gained international recognition, including being featured in Communication Arts.
