Beau Haan: Roam Book Club, Block-level Zettelkasten, Roaman Community
April 10, 2021
WARNING: This is an explicit episode!
This is for Lydia.
In this episode, we talk with Beau Haan, a trained actor, model, and one of the key pillars of the Roaman community. Leading the Roam Book Club, he's built a space for many participants to share their thoughts with a Roam-specific Zettelkasten method. With up to 300 actives in RBC3, they found the chance to discover more of themselves and their thoughts at block-level.
We talked about:
- Beau's origin stories, from running away from home to entering rehab and telling stories
- The loss of loved ones and the impact that has on one's life
- Discovering Roam Research and how he became a true believer without even trying the app
- What he learned from his personal coaching sessions with [[Sönke Ahrens]]
- How questioning the way you learn is questioning your identity
