Gamification: The Secret to High Views, High Engagement & Great Results with Eric Siu


There are so many lenses through which we can view our businesses – as vehicles for opportunity or paths to wealth, but if we see it as a game we can never lose, it impacts how we operate in a huge way. 

When we gamify what we do, we’ll never arrive at a destination – we’ll keep growing and reaching for more, generating new ideas, and overdelivering on our promises.

How can we treat marketing our businesses as a game? How do we compound our content marketing efforts? 

In this episode, I’m joined by investor, founder, corporate advisor, and the chairman of digital marketing agency Single Grain, Eric Siu. He talks about his own business journey and the most valuable lessons we can learn about wealth. 


Early entrepreneurs tend to get shiny object syndrome and they end up growing a bunch of things to very subpar results. – Eric Siu
