Ep 9. Why it's not your fault you don't like what that person said, but that's not good enough.

While the world is a gold mine, you need to go digging in other people’s heads to unearth riches. Questions are your pickaxes and competitive advantage. - Tim Ferriss

As we switch gears from the previous epsiodes, we start to dig a little deeper in to some of the challenges we face when it comes to asking good questions. This episode is the start where we will specifically tackle some of the most prevalent biases that hinder us in asking questions.
