A Revelatory Elegy of Unknowing with Todd Davis (author of Coffin Honey)
The poems of Todd Davis sharpen a reader’s spirit and focus, on the bloodstained teeth breaking apart the day-to-day doldrums and on the mythic imagination necessary to bear witness to this daunting moment in our species, on our planet. Todd Davis and I spoke back in 2019 about his book Native Species and he has read his poems in the last two years on the Contemplify Backporch Advent Outpost series. Today we focus on Todd’s latest book of poems, Coffin Honey. We step into the rich imagery of characters, landscape, and emotion vibrating off the pages of his work. We also do not shy away from the thick smoke of trauma, poetry as a survival skill, the cost of risking participation in crafting such poems, and much more. Before we get started, I want to note that in this episode with Todd Davis we converse about sexual assault and self mutilation, in both personal and mythic stories. If that sounds like a conversation you are not comfortable listening to, we sure understand. Take care of yourself. Visit Todd’s website at todddavispoet.com to slip through the doors of his poetry.

The Capital Stack
LifeLock is one of the most well known identity theft monitoring companies out there. Its founder and executive chairman, Todd Davis, is here to tell us about the company’s beginnings, it’s growth, and it’s sale in 2017. It all started while attending the University of Texas when Todd found out about the entrepreneur program at Baylor. He knew he had to go, and that’s where he caught the entrepreneurial bug. He went on to start multiple companies in many industries, including wastewater treatment, computer sales, sports marketing, and CBD.In order to become the most trusted brand in their space, LifeLock had to raise a lot of money and offer a million dollar guarantee. Despite LifeLock’s ultimate success, Todd says many times it wasn’t obvious it was going to be great. There were times they came within 90 days of running out of money. Starting with only one $10/month option, LifeLock needed to drum up a lot of subscriptions. Todd became excellent at utilizing PR opportunities and is most well known for giving out his social security number to prove his confidence in their product. What You’ll Learn:The two instinctual things you need to be a successful entrepreneur. The importance of a mentor and what they can teach you. How ego is the downfall of many business leaders.
