The co-founders of RocketHub - Brian Meece, Jed Cohen, and Vladimir Vukicevic - wish Seth Godin a very happy 50th Birthday!

Without Seth, our little company wouldn't be where it is today. We've read all his his books, studied the hundreds of blog posts on, and have attended his live presentations. RocketHub is a completely indie bootstrapped company that has taken his advice to heart. We've engrained his teachings into our core company values and day-to-day operations.

The Dip was the catalyst for us jumping into a high-risk startup environment and for the individual realizations that we hit the cul-de-sac at our previous day jobs. The Bootstrapper's Bible gave us the gusto to stay indie. And Tribes has given us the tools to empower the RocketHub community leaders, the Creatives that make crowdfunding possible.

So thank you Seth - here's to another 50 years!


Human beings can't help it: we need to belong. One of the most powerful of our survival mechanisms is to be part of a tribe, to contribute to (and take from) a group of like-minded people. We are drawn to leaders and to their ideas, and we can't resist the rush of belonging and the thrill of the new. ... We want to belong not to just one tribe, it turns out, but to many. And if you give us tools and make it easy, we'll keep joining. Tribes make our lives better. And leading a tribe is the best life of all.
