Starting third to market and rising to be the market leader in just a few years is rarely heard of, but that's exactly what Gong has done. Gong is a revenue intelligence platform that gives sales and customer success teams insights on what is happening with their customers without anyone having to lift a finger. Their vision is to build the best autonomous applications in the world. By prioritizing quality, Gong has managed not only to become the best at what it does, but to stay on top, always running fast to keep making its product better than the alternatives. CEO and Founder Amit Bendov  joins Scott Britton and Andrei Newman on the Built by Humans Podcast to discuss the future of autonomous applications, how to pull away from the competition, and the importance of being able to ‘zoom out'.    Here are some quick takeaways:   As time goes on, businesses will only continue to favor autonomous software solutions over human-curated ones. The goal is to make what was hard work effortless and more consistent. There's no moat between you and your competitors in the SaaS world. While in competition the strong tend to get stronger,  you shouldn't assume the advantages you have will last any longer than 12 months: you have to run like crazy to stay ahead. A strong collaboration between sales and product is vital for either team to work effectively. The goal is to have a product so good even a mediocre sales team would work, and a sales team so good even a mediocre product would work. When it comes to marketing, be bold and be comfortable with polarizing decisions. Being safe with marketing is a risky choice; taking risks is your safest option. In many markets, you'll have to make the product decision of whether to be the budget option or the expensive solution to your problem. In either case, make sure to stick to your decision: if you decide to be the best solution, don't also feel the need to lower your prices as a competition strategy, and instead market on being worth the high cost. Job interviews are a tremendous source of information for learning about organizational design.  The ability to “zoom-out” can be a great addition to your skill set as you move forward in business. Constantly challenge yourself to think bigger to find new solutions and ideas.

THE QUANTUM BRAIN with Dr. Amit Goswami    “Quantum entanglement aka quantum correlation is the integration of science and spirituality.” – Theoretical Quantum Physicist Dr. Amit Goswami       Episode Summary:   Have you ever wanted to find a bridge between science and spirituality? Does your intuition tell you it's not a hard “either/or”?   In this episode, we talk with theoretical quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami who was a physics professor at the University of Oregon from 1968 to 1997, and has appeared in the movies “What the Bleep Do We Know?”, “Dalai Lama Renaissance” and the award winning documentary, “The Quantum Activist”.   Dr. Goswami is a revolutionary amongst a growing body of renegade scientists who in recent years have ventured into the domain of the spiritual in an attempt to both interpret the seemingly inexplicable findings of curious experiments, and to validate intuition about the existence of a spiritual dimension of life.  His new book, “The Quantum Brain” is out now.   Listen in to understand how Dr. Goswami bridges the chasm between quantum physics and conscious awareness.   Today We Discuss: A basic concept in quantum physics is that there are multiple waves of possibilities. Quantum objects are waves of possibilities. When they are observed they become experience. When we observe something, we are choosing to collapse the object into a certain state. What we perceive as stationary – the Newtonian reality we are all familiar with – is not really stationary. Rather, apparently stationary objects are moving very slowly – much too slowly for us to perceive any motion. Which is why we can share experiences with others and how we develop a consensus reality. Our experience creates a convenient but inaccurate notion about reality. Our experiences create our reality; there is nothing in the world until we experienced it. The crucial question: How do we apply quantum physics to our everyday life? Quantum entanglement - when two quantum objects become essentially one and share information without signals being exchanged over space and time. This concept was verified with a space experiment in France in 1982. And of course by the experience of mystics 7,000 years ago, starting in India and then spreading to China, Greece, the Middle-East, and perhaps the America's in the hands of the shamans. This is where quantum science connects with mysticism, where it connects with spirituality. This is signal-less togetherness, spontaneous non-local togetherness; or in spirituality - Oneness. Quantum entanglement or quantum correlation is the integration of science and spirituality. Quantum Leap occurs when electrons make a transition from one atomic orbit to another. The notion of quantum leap comes into play with the experiences of intuition and insight, that feeling in the gut so compelling, so convincing that you know that you have seen truth. Changing brain behavior so that we are better able to choose a particular outcome. Through meditation we become the boss of our brain, vs the other way around. To learn creativity we have to take charge of the brain's automatic responses through alternating between meditation and relaxation. Focus and then relax. Transport potential - Nonlocal transfer of information between two meditating brains.  We are capable of quantum non-locality, and we are ultimately a non-local consciousness. Why traditional quantum physicists are not open to these concepts – due to pressure from the establishment to support the official position of the American physical society. How to live a quantum life The ultimate problem is that the brain evolved over millions and millions of years, and the conditioned response builds on itself. The persona “me” that I present to society gains strength over a lifetime. To move toward conscious awareness, and perception of reality, we need to maintain a lifestyle conducive to that state. We need to surround ourselves with things of love, things of beauty, and positive relationships; and not pay attention to all the negativity of the world. “The Seven I's” for manifestation -- Inspiration, Intention, Intuition, Imagination, Incubation, Insight, Implementation       FOLLOW DR.

BIO: Amit Somani is managing partner at Prime Venture Partners (PVP), a Bangalore-based, early-stage fund. For 20 years before this, he held leadership roles at Makemytrip (NASDAQ: MMYT), Google, IBM Silicon Valley Labs, and IBM Research. STORY: Amit's company came across this company that had a great product but didn't have a business model. Amit's company decided to back it anyway. It didn't go well. A few years later, they came across another company with a great product and a great team but, again, no business model. Having lost the first time, they decided not to back the second company. It went on to become a unicorn in three years. LEARNING: The same kind of analysis or rigor will not apply every time you're investing. Don't just extrapolate from a past pattern. Have repeatability in your investing process.   “You can't borrow conviction; you have to get your own conviction because it's subjective.”Amit Somani Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/thesomani/ (Amit Somani) is managing partner at https://primevp.in/ (Prime Venture Partners (PVP)), a Bangalore-based, early-stage fund. For 20 years prior to this, he held leadership roles at Makemytrip (NASDAQ: MMYT), Google, IBM Silicon Valley Labs, and IBM Research. Amit was part of the leadership team that took Makemytrip public on NASDAQ in 2010. He was also the head of various teams focusing on search, mobile, and advertisement products at Google. One of his products, the search-based keyword tool, even won the Google Founder's Award. Prior to his role at Google, he was the Director for the Enterprise Search and Discovery business at IBM San Jose, California. Worst investment everAmit's company was looking at a great company around 2015/16. It had a phenomenal product in the women's health space. They did their usual due diligence, spoke to the entrepreneur, and decided to back the company. However, one thing was missing, which was the lack of a viable business model. They decided it didn't matter as long as the company was building something that people love. Unfortunately, this was a big mistake. They should have thought a little bit harder about how the business model would come out or the ability of that team to manifest the business model. Things didn't work out well for the company. Fast forward a few years later. Amit's company met another fantastic company in the FinTech space. Again, there was no business model, but the product looked great, they had an incredible team, and the market was big in terms of the people they could serve. But still, no business model. Amit's company decided not to back this one due to the experience they'd had with the previous company. Then it went on to be a unicorn in three years. Lessons learnedThe same kind of analysis or rigor will not apply every time you're investing. You've got to factor in the timing and not overly pattern match because things change, markets change, dynamics change. Evaluate things from the first principle basis. You do not want to just extrapolate from a past pattern. As long as you have repeatability in your process, in your method, in your sourcing, and your checklists, overall, you're going to be just fine. Andrew's takeawaysThere's going to be a point where you're just going to have to make your play. Actionable adviceIn early-stage investing, you can't borrow conviction; you've got to get your own conviction because it's subjective. There's got to be something that's off the charts that should catch your attention. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsAmit's number one goal for the next 12 months is to launch his new fund and continue investing in a few new areas, including AI, crypto blockchain, and applying that to financial services and gaming tech.

BIO: Amit Kumar Agarwal is the founder and CEO of NoBroker.com, the world's largest C2C real estate platform with 13 million customers, eliminating brokers and agents in real estate transactions with a tech-based approach. STORY: Amit decided to be in complete control of his business, and even when he hired people, he hired his juniors, who literally do nothing without him. This kind of control only created bottlenecks, and he couldn't scale his business until he partnered with a person who had more expertise than him. LEARNING: You won't scale your business if you keep doing everything on your own. Hire great people and nurture them.   “If you want to scale up, then doing everything on your own and trying to control things is a very bad idea.”Amit Agarwal  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/amit-kumar-agarwal-5b30301/ (Amit Kumar Agarwal) is the founder and CEO of https://www.nobroker.in/ (NoBroker.com), the world's largest C2C real estate platform with 13 million customers, that is eliminating brokers and agents in real estate transactions with a tech-based approach. He has raised $151m of institutional funding so far. The NoBroker business model is disruptive, tech-based, capital-efficient, and designed to be scaled globally. Worst investment everWhen Amit first started his company, he was doing everything on his own. From finance to HR to operations. Everything would have to go through him. When it came to hiring people, he hired his juniors and continued making all the decisions. Slowly this blew over for Amit. Everything was over the place. His juniors didn't understand his business, and he would have to be the one making even the tiniest decisions when trying something new. Amit's team would get stuck because they had to speak to him before doing anything. Things just started going out of control because Amit couldn't handle it all. Luckily, Amit was saved from his worst investment ever by a very experienced guy who happened to visit his office. He had gone to the same college as Amit, and they joined hands and ran the company together. Suddenly, there was a tremendous business change. Amit realized that what he needed was people smarter than him. Lessons learnedYou won't scale your business if you keep doing everything yourself and trying to control things. Hire great people and nurture them. Get expertise in each functional area as soon as possible and give them independence and accountability. Andrew's takeawaysWhen starting a business, work with the $3 million rule. Think about how quickly are you going to get your revenue to $3 million? With $3 million, you now have the budget to have a proper management team, office, software, and infrastructure to scale your business. If you're struggling right now and are overloaded and overwhelmed dribbling it all yourself, stop and think about where you're at. It may be time to reach out, get help, and build your team, so you're not doing everything. Actionable adviceWe need to continue learning and reassessing our businesses. As the situation changes, you also need to change quickly, and hence you need better people with better expertise. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsAmit's number one goal for the next 12 months is to keep his customers happy, expand into new services, and make them bigger.   [spp-transcript]   Connect with Amit Agarwalhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/amit-kumar-agarwal-5b30301/ (LinkedIn) https://www.nobroker.in/ (Website) Andrew's bookshttps://amzn.to/3qrfHjX (How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market) https://amzn.to/2PDApAo (My Worst Investment Ever) https://amzn.to/3v6ip1Y (9 Valuation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them) https://amzn.to/3emBO8M (Transform Your Business with Dr.Deming's 14 Points) Andrew's online programshttps://valuationmasterclass.com/ (Valuation Master Class) https://academy.astotz.com/courses/how-to-start-building-your-wealth-investing-in-the-stock-market (How to

These deities have been designed, constructed and consecrated according to prescribed “shastras” (Science treaties/technology).  Dating back to ancient times (per legends), they are treated as live/powerful energy beings. Many public and secret rituals are followed on a daily basis to maintain the powerful energy form. The temples around them have been built and rebuilt, due to natural wear and tear, repeated invasions etc, but the consecration remains.  Everyone has access to their powerful energies, but the “sadhaka” (the seeker) needs to prepare oneself to be able to receive. It's like radio or TV transmissions. You need the dial/antenna to be tuned to the frequency they are broadcasting.I am including links and live streams from temples of these various deities, that I mentioned during our chat and also some photos. For more information on the deities and temples, my recommendation is to use the temple's own website rather than Wikipedia. Systems in these temples are still catching up to technology so their websites may not work optimally or there may be other issues. I am also attaching popular depiction for each of the deity in links: Kali as “MahaLakshmi”, deity of wealth and prosperity, located in a city called Kolhapur, in the western part of India.Following the website to the temple and a live stream from her temple: https://www.mahalaxmikolhapur.com/ https://www.mahalaxmikolhapur.com/shri-ambabai-mahalaxmi-live-darshan.php Kali as “Saptashrungi”, as a deity with 8 hands who defeated the buffalo headed demon Mahishasur. This temple is located in a town called Vani, near the city of Nasik, in the western part of India. Following the website to the temple and a recorded live stream, video is pretty long, where her entire morning worship and decoration is shown: https://www.saptashrungi.net/home.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFzAJcaA68Y Kali as “Naina Devi”, the eyes of the original Goddess Sati, whose body parts fell, in the story I narrated. This temple is located in a town called Bilaspur, about 220 miles from New Delhi, in the northern part of India.

Dr. Amit Etkin is pioneering a revolution in the way mental health medications are designed, developed, prescribed, and brought to market.  Precision psychiatry is the future of mental health treatment and Dr. Etkin is leading the way with his drug development platform, Alto Neuroscience.  In this episode, Dr. Etkin explains why psychiatric drugs have failed, what he is doing about it and why it will work.  Prior to Alto Neuroscience, Dr. Etkin was a tenured professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University and a member of the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute. Dr. Etkin has received multiple awards, most notably the NIH Director's Pioneer Award in 2017. He is trained as both a psychiatrist and neuroscientist. The overarching aim of his work in this field for the last 10 years is to understand the neural basis of emotional disorders and their treatment, and to leverage this knowledge to better understand how the brain works and to develop novel treatment interventions. In support of this goal, Dr. Etkin also collaborates with neuroscientists, engineers, psychologists, physicians, and others to establish a new intellectual, scientific, and clinical paradigm for understanding and manipulating human brain circuits in healthy individuals and for treating psychiatric disease. You can connect with Amit here:  LinkedIn Alto Neuroscience Website: https://www.altoneuroscience.com/ What If Fellowship: https://whatif.vc/fellowship   HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT: Etkin shares his background, why he got into the field of neuroscience, and why he is building Alto Neuroscience. We discuss the biggest needs in the clinical psychology world is and how Alto Neuroscience will solve some of the greatest needs in the mental health space. We talk about measurement & testing, as well as biomarkers in the mental health space at large and why we are so far behind other healthcare verticals when it comes to measurement and testing in the mental health space. Etkin explains that one of the primary reasons bio-pharma companies haven't focused as much as they should on Central Nervous System (CNS) drug development in the last couple of decades is because we can't effectively measure how the drugs are working. All of that has changed now with the creation of Alto Neuroscience.  Amit talks about the concept of “precision psychiatry”, how precision is utilized in other fields of medicine, and the importance of using it in the mental health space to improve treatment options. We discuss how the combination of measurement and precision psychiatry can change psychiatry, drug development, and treatment of mental health disorders both broadly on a macro level and specifically with respect to his work at Alto Neuroscience. Amit shares about what Alto Neuroscience is currently working on, the drugs they currently developing, and their vision for the future of psychiatric medication.   Connect with the Stigma Podcast in the following ways: Website, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Email Connect with host Stephen Hays here: Stephen Hays Personal Website, Twitter, LinkedIn, What If Ventures (Mental Health Venture Fund)
