Karl Rove

Wait, that Karl Rove? Yes! The goal of this blog is to find ideas that work, no matter where they come from and Rove’s podcast with David Axelrod (wait, that David Axelrod?) was good. Not only that, but it’s a pair of political heavies having a civil conversation. If you don’t care for Karl Rove, you can view this post two […]

Michael Mauboussin 3

Michael Mauboussin joined Barry Ritholtz on the Masters in Business podcast and I loved every minute of it. Mauboussin is great, and I’ve taken notes on some of his other conversations; Michael Mauboussin with Shane Parrish and another with Michael Mauboussin and Ritholtz. I saw a lot of tweets about this interview and someone said that what […]

Gear doesn’t matter

This post is available in podcast form on Soundcloud and iTunes. Money = Gear = Success? False. As noted in the Daymond John post, money is not a silver bullet. Life often presents us with black box problems and we need to create black box solutions. Gear, like money isn’t a silver bullet. I didn’t always […]

Gary Vaynerchuk #2

Gary Vaynerchuk (@GaryVee) joined Joe Famalette (@JoeFamalette) for a Fireside Chat L.A. Gary talked to James Altucher early on in his podcast, episode #2 if you’re counting, and this was a nice update to that talk. Gary wasn’t on to promote anything except Gary, which he does so earnestly I think that’s why people like […]

Joshua Foer

Joshua Foer (@JoshuaFoer) joined James Altucher to talk about memory, his book Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, and a menagerie of other ideas. The interview mostly focuses on Foer’s book, which is good. The book follows his path from a single article for Slate, to a chance to be the United States memory […]

Stanley McChrystal and Chris Fussell

Stanley McChrystal and Chris Fussell (@FussellChris) joined Tim Ferriss to talk about how to create your own Army Ranger school, what a Red Team is and why you can’t be on one, and obstacles through life. It’s a great conversation and it epitomizes why I write this blog. We have access to a four star […]
