Mitchell Earl
Interested in Senior Marketing & Senior Operations roles
I see building a business as a way to solve problems that matter to me, and prove those problems matter to others. I care about telling stories that make customers feel seen and incumbent businesses shake in their boots. I'm not afraid to piss people off or outwork them. I'm a generalist, but I'll give you a run for your money solving any problem.

Mitchell is a cowboy turned startup professional and Director of Marketing @ Crash. He’s a former champion meat grader. Author of Don’t Do Stuff You Hate. Narrator of Why Haven’t You Read This Book? And previously Chief of Staff at Ceterus – where he helped scale a team from 20 to 150, 5x revenue, and raise over $20MM in venture capital.

He’s radical about creating a better future and helping others do the same. Unsolvable problems and conspiracies are his favorite conversation genres. The keys to his heart – fine Bordeaux and Hemingway novels.

Don't Do Stuff You Hate

When it comes to improving your life you're probably making it harder than it has to be. Stop focusing on what you want, what you love, what your calling or passion is. Start focusing on what you hate, what makes you bored, what's draining your sense of excitement. The best way to a life you love is simple: don't do stuff you hate.This book combines essays and insights from two authors who have put this philosophy into practice. It's a scattershot of ideas and practices for shedding the web of negative obligations, activities, and emotions so you can begin to build something better in its place.
