Strategy is about making the future happen, not just reacting to it, according to author Gary Hamel. And with generative artificial intelligence, senior leaders suddenly wield an awesome new tool to change the fortunes of their organizations. The promise of generative AI is more than just a sweet hack to boost productivity and streamline operations. Its deeper potential lies in companies that rethink what they do and conjure brand-new, AI-first products and services. Simply put, generative AI is blasting open new strategic paths to create novel business opportunities, even as it brings serious risks and heightened competition. In this episode, How Generative AI Changes Strategy, HBR editor in chief Adi Ignatius speaks to Microsoft's head of strategy Chris Young and Harvard Business School professor Andy Wu. They lay out the technology, its emerging value chains, and its main providers. They also break down the key choices and tradeoffs that large and small companies alike will be making in this fast-changing market. This is the fourth and final episode in the special series How Generative AI Changes Everything. Each week, HBR editor in chief Adi Ignatius and HBR editor Amy Bernstein have been hosting conversations with experts and business leaders about the impact of generative AI.

The Lean StartupThe Lean Startup Full Book Introduction We have entered an era of unprecedented entrepreneurial renaissance, but the success rate of today's startups is very low due to the absence of effective management. How to improve a startup's chances of success has become an inevitable question for every entrepreneur. This book proposes the idea of ‘lean startup'. By developing minimum viable products and failing fast, a business could validate whether its product meets the customers' needs or not at the minimum cost and in the shortest time. During the process, a startup can acquire “validated learning” and improve its chance of success. Author : Eric RiesThe author, Eric Ries, is the Co-Founder and CTO of IMVU as well as an Entrepreneur in Residence at Harvard Business School. His idea of ‘lean startup' has been extensively reported in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, The Huffington Post, and many other media. He also provides consulting services related to business and product strategy for a number of startups, large companies, and venture capital institutions. Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses. In an era of unprecedented entrepreneurial renaissance, how could a startup stand out from fierce competition and succeed? A great product? An amazing team? Or an extraordinary idea? The answer is none of these. A business with a great product could easily fail if its marketing strategy is improper. But even a perfect marketing strategy does not guarantee success. A startup with both a good product and a marketing strategy in line with market demands might gain some early success, but it could still fail from blind expansion and excessive operating expenses. Even a world-renowned company like Kodak could eventually go bankrupt due to its inability to adapt to market changes and transform its business. On top of idea, product, team, and other elements, a startup that wants to be successful and continue to grow needs to have a set of scientific management practices. If a company can do this, it will develop and grow in an orderly manner and put itself in a nearly invincible position. Many startups fail due to improper management practices, so some entrepreneurs try to imitate the management practices of those long-established enterprises. But they neglected one fact: Although the traditional enterprises have mature management models, their models are not applicable or appropriate for startups. The practices of traditional enterprises are based on a stable market environment, while startups face a chaotic market environment with extreme uncertainty. As a result, the conventional management practices are not helpful to the development of startups, and sometimes those practices may even introduce bureaucracy and kill creativity instead. On the other hand, some other entrepreneurs do the exact opposite: They completely abandon the conventional management principles and just follow their instincts. But this also doesn't guarantee success and can be problematic. So, how exactly should entrepreneurs manage their startups in order to succeed? This book proposes the idea of a ‘lean startup'. By developing a minimum viable product (MVP), a startup could quickly validate if a product meets customers' needs at the minimum cost and in the shortest time. The process is called ‘validated learning', which can help entrepreneurs improve their chances of success. The concept of ‘lean startup' was...

The Power Of HabitThe Power Of Habit Full Book Introduction Do you think that your daily routine is the product of well-considered decision-making? In reality, it's anything but that. We are primarily driven by our habits, which, once formed, are there to stay. However, once we understand the way habits function, it becomes easier for us to control them. The Power of Habit is an in-depth analysis of habits. It shows how developing new habits can transform our lives beyond recognition. Author : Charles DuhiggCharles Duhigg is a former New York Times reporter who currently writes for The New Yorker magazine. He studied history at Yale University and received an MBA from Harvard Business School. He is an author of many bestsellers, including The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better, and a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, the United States National Academies Communication Award, the National Journalism Award, the George Polk Award, the Gerald Loeb Award, and other accolades. He has also contributed to American Life, The Dr. Oz Show, and other periodicals throughout his career. Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today, we'll unlock the book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. What do you do first thing in the morning? Brush your teeth, wash your face, take a shower, or eat your breakfast? Do you tie your left or right shoe first? Which route do you take to work? When you arrive at the office, do you first check your email or make small talk with your colleagues? Do you eat a healthy salad or a hearty steak for lunch? After you get home in the evening, do you exercise or make your dinner first? You may think that all of these choices are the result of deliberate thinking, but they are not. Most of those actions are the byproduct of your habitual patterns. According to research published by Duke University in 2006, 40% of peoples' daily activities are born from habits, not decisions made after careful consideration. Habits play an essential role in our lives. Over time, they profoundly impact our health, productivity, financial security, and happiness. As a result, we all want to develop good habits or break bad ones. Nevertheless, most of us fail to do so and easily revert to our regular patterns. However, once we understand the science behind habit formation, we can break habits into segments and restructure them to develop good ones that fit our needs and support healthier eating patterns and higher productivity. Over the decades, Charles Duhigg, the author of this book, consulted hundreds of neuroscientists, psychologists, sociologists, and marketing specialists. Based on this extensive research, his book explains the neurology of habit formation and the mechanics of changing habits. We'll divide the premise of this book into five main areas: Part 1: The Neurology of Habit Formation Part 2: How to Change an Old Habit Part 3: How to Create a New Habit Part 4: Finding Keystone Habits Part 5: Are We Responsible for Our Habits?

I wanted to make my own money. I wanted to have that independence [from very early on].” — Allie Egan [0:07:03]“That [childhood health scare] experience has taught me how so many people think about their health. Instead of being proactive and [thinking] ‘What could be going on in my body? How can I make it better?', how they think about optimal health is clouded in fear.” — Allie Egan [0:11:20]“I feel fortunate that I ended up getting interviews at [L Catterton], which is 100% exclusively focused on consumer retail. I didn't know if I'd love [investment banking], but what I ended up loving was the consumer retail world.” — Allie Egan [0:15:09]“Like a lot of folks, I had been on this path of ‘This is the paved path. Keep going that way.' [I liked what I was doing], but I really started to soul search and think about: what could I be uniquely good at? What could I bring to the table?” — Allie Egan [0:17:53]“Part of what you're doing in building a company is being the conductor of all these things, whether it's ideas, expertise, products, or people.” — Allie Egan [0:18:30]“If you knew everything you were going to learn [as an entrepreneur], you'd probably make different decisions!” — Allie Egan [0:21:59]“Here I was, someone that worked in skincare, was seeking a doctor, and not only did I not have the tools to solve my aesthetic issue, but I also didn't have this important information about my underlying health.” — Allie Egan [0:31:07]“One piece of advice I always like to give to [entrepreneurs] is to try to talk about your ideas early and often, even when they're not perfectly formed.” — Allie Egan [0:39:36]“Raising capital is always hard. It is such a slog. I listened to the founder of Coinbase, [who said]: a successful fundraise is 9 out of 10 people telling you no. And that's in really good times!” — Allie Egan [0:42:03]“Being an entrepreneur is like, every day, either getting an acceptance or a rejection letter from your favorite college, but getting both accepted and rejected multiple times a day, every single day. Dealing with that elation down to the dumps is something that has become the norm.” — Allie Egan [0:43:03]

So much of this episode (and this podcast as a whole, really) is about one consistent theme: How do we reset or redesign our healthcare industry, including hospital chains—mostly talking about the big consolidated ones that have a lot of money here—but how do we redesign these leviathans to be more consistent with our values as a country and the values of the doctors and other clinicians and others who work in these places and who went into the healthcare profession for a reason that had, you know, something to do with patients? And I mean something to do with patients that doesn't involve dressing up for Halloween as a giant cardboard dollar sign, like some finance department guy did at one large nonprofit hospital in the spirit of shaking money out of poor patients (see article here). Or listen to previous episodes about hospitals raising prices way higher than the rates of inflation. Not to belabor this because we've already talked about it so very often, but you also have the whole thing with big, well-funded, nonprofit hospital chains going on cost-cutting extravaganzas and, at least in one case, basically creating their own staffing crisis. Do these activities have a familiar ring to them? Do they strike you as a page out of a playbook you may have seen elsewhere? I don't know about you, but they remind me of things that private equity or financial folks run around doing. I mean, the classic stepwise for how to maximize the financial value of an “asset” from a financial industry standpoint is to cut costs and raise prices. Piling on this “kind of sounds like a B-school group project” thesis, what about the thing with a bunch of these big, consolidated hospital systems with rich endowments crying crocodile tears about how much money they lost last year? Except … in a whole bunch of cases, the money they lost—some of which came from the COVID CARES relief act funds they got, by the way—but this money was lost when their risky stock market investments tanked. Those are their losses. Stock market losses. From speculative investments. Are you kidding me? But hospitals are charities, right? They are nonprofits. They aren't owned by private equity. They aren't owned by an investment bank or a team of financiers, so you wouldn't expect them to be acting like they are owned by Wall Street. But … oh, wait … how weird. You know who is on the boards of some of these very well-known nonprofit hospitals? If you don't, I'm not surprised, because in too many cases, if you ask me, you have to dig around in tax filings and other bureaucratic paperwork to unearth the names of these members who have quite a large amount of power (it turns out) over what goes on in the hospital. But you know who is on these boards? Yeah … almost half of board members tend to have a financial background. Almost none of them are nurses. And what about doctors? Are physicians on these boards? Well, almost one-third of hospital boards did not have a single physician member. So, there's that. Here's a quote from a STAT news article written by my guest in this healthcare podcast, Suhas Gondi, MD, MBA, and also Sanjay Kishore, MD, about a study that the two of them coauthored about who is on hospital boards. Here's the quote: Our findings are cause for concern. If hospital executives are largely held accountable by finance professionals and corporate leaders, instead of by clinicians and patients, might they focus more on revenue and expenses than the needs of their communities or staff? While some argue that margin facilitates mission, the measure of a nonprofit organization is how these priorities are balanced by leaders who ultimately answer to their board. So, I get there's balance. You have to be financially sustainable. But I also get that, apparently, tigers don't change their pinstripes. The pin-striped suit remains even when the finance tigers become the board members of a charitable organization that's supposed to be serving the surrounding community paying its freight in the form of its tax exemptions. This is what this conversation is about today: Who is on these hospital boards? How much power do these hospital boards have? And what might be done to switch it up some so that we can get hospitals that are reflective of our values as a nation and what we want for ourselves and our families? Today, as aforementioned, I'm speaking with Suhas Gondi, MD, MBA, who, along with his coauthor Sanjay Kishore, MD, wrote a paper on this exact topic. Check out some great Tweets and comments. Following are some suggestions that Dr. Gondi makes in this podcast interview that follows to help us get a little less misaligned. Here's one mandate and three suggested models for current hospital boards, which (let's get real) are currently comprised a lot of times of a group of people making decisions in closed boardrooms that impact a whole lot of people. First of all, there should be transparency about who is on the board and what they are doing in those closed rooms—what decisions they are making. Second of all, the IRS could surely mandate that for anybody looking to get tax-exempt status, certain requirements are in order for the boards of said organizations. Then here's three suggested models to consider: 1. At other kinds of charities and even healthcare organizations with clear missions, like Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), the composition of the boards is mandated; and for FQHCs, 50% of the board has to be patients who are patients at the FQHC, for example. And, yeah with this. Hospitals are tax-exempt entities. That means that others in the community are paying more in taxes so that this hospital isn't paying taxes. This hospital, therefore, is in debt to the community. Having a board that is reflective of the community could be one way to ensure that this hospital has an accountability to that community and can serve its needs adequately. 2. NASDAQ requires that two members of every board have some “under-represented” diversity, so that could be a thing. You could add to that professional background diversity. I was looking at a Web site the other day featuring a team photo with the caption something like “Here's our diverse team,” and the entire photo was of, I'm going to say, literally 30+ white men. The caption clarified that they all had different experiences … in the pharmacy benefit administration space. So, nothing against white men, but … yeah, it might be a good idea to align as a community on a broad definition of diversity and what “reflective of the community” means. 3. Accountable capitalism. This was originally suggested by Senator Elizabeth Warren, who argued that 40% of boards should be elected by workers. So, not the majority of the board but enough of the board that it becomes accountable to frontline workers and others. You can learn more by connecting with Dr. Gondi on Twitter and LinkedIn.

From prehistoric cave paintings to an inventor's Eureka moment, creativity has always been described as a particularly human trait. But something strange can happen with generative artificial intelligence. Your ideas can take shape far faster. You also get ideas that you might never have imagined on your own. So, who is the creator here? What is creative work in the era of generative AI? What is innovation in this emerging world? In this episode, How Generative AI Changes Creativity, Adi Ignatius speaks with video artist and consultant Don Allen Stevenson III about how generative AI is disrupting creative work and the creative industry. Then Ignatius speaks to two innovation researchers, Jacqueline Ng Lane and David De Cremer, about changes to the creative process within organizations. Lane is a professor at Harvard Business School. De Cremer is a professor at the National University of Singapore Business School and a coauthor of the HBR article “How Generative AI Could Disrupt Creative Work.” How Generative AI Changes Everything is a special series from HBR IdeaCast. Each week, HBR editor in chief Adi Ignatius and HBR editor Amy Bernstein host conversations with experts and business leaders about the impact of generative AI on productivity, creativity and innovation, organizational culture, and strategy. The episodes publish in the IdeaCast feed each Thursday in May, after the regular Tuesday episode.

I found this article from Heidi K. Gardner, Ph.D., who has discovered through more than a decade of teaching and research at Harvard's business and law schools that people who figured out how to collaborate across teams gained a major competitive edge over those who did not. Dr. Gardner also discovered just how rare collaboration skills are. A 2021 McKinsey study found that collaboration skills are surprisingly rare, especially among men. The study found that women leaders, compared with men at the same level, were about twice as likely to spend substantial time on collaborative efforts that fell outside their formal job. What exactly is collaboration? The act of bringing people together to solve problems. In my practice, my clients are stressing the importance of cross-functional collaboration – being able to work with people from accounting, HR, marketing, sales, operations – to address complex, nuanced challenges and develop creative solutions. Why are collaboration skills so important in today's work force? Research shows that collaborators: -Deliver higher quality results-Get promoted faster-Are more noticed by senior management-Have more satisfied clients What are the aspects of being an exceptional collaborator? 1. Be an inclusive leader. Whether you are in a leadership position or not, do what you can to bring diverse people together – and be sure to be inclusive in your diversity. What does that mean? Different knowledge domains, different backgrounds, different ages and life experiences, different educational backgrounds, different cultures, different personality types, different strengths. 2. Show appreciation and acknowledgment. A study by Harvard Business School professor Boris Groysberg found that workers, especially men, often take their professional networks for granted. Acknowledge those who have helped you get where you are and show appreciation for those you've collaborated with. Give credit where credit is due – and never, ever throw anyone under the bus for underperforming. 3. Ask for help. Whatever your role is in an organization, it is likely that reaching out across the organization for different insights and perspectives will make your final product better. Collaboration doesn't have to be a large group – you could collaborate with one person from another department to greatly improve your report, project, or whatever you are working on. 1:1 collaboration can also be a great way to form strong business relationships with people you might not otherwise get to know in any depth. Remember to credit those who helped you. 4. Crowdsource. Give people a way to contribute – and learn along the way – without having to be a part of every team. Utilize Slack or other messaging tools to spur virtual collaborations, knowledge sharing, and knowledge distribution. 5. Share data streams. Scorecards and dashboards are powerful tools that allow you to measure progress against the goals you've set, create a sense of positive peer pressure as outcomes can be compared, and make critical information accessible. This is never done in a punitive manner; having said that, data is data. Of course, some data should not be shared, so make what can be accessible, accessible.

Unless you're famous - or want to be - you might not think of yourself as a brand. But whether you're in a meeting or on social media, interviewing for a job or asking for a promotion, the way you carry yourself conveys a certain image to the people around you. Jill Avery studies marketing and is a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School, and Rachel Greenwald is a professional matchmaker and dating coach. Together, they explain why a strong personal brand is important for professional success. They walk us through how to think about reputation, identify core values, and project our authentic selves. Avery and Greenwald wrote the HBR article “A New Approach to Building Your Personal Brand.”
Many of you listening to this show are at or nearing the midpoint of life. The rest of you will be there before you know it. This show is geared to blow away a myth and massive problem we live within our culture. We churn and grind away to achieve and provide...and as we age we just try to buckle down and keep it going as long as we can, or as long as we feel we have to. This is a message to say..."Whoa! Stop! You've totally got it wrong! You don't want to keep doing what you've been doing. Rather you want to evolve, graduate if you will, to a new and well earned second half of life. One where you move from learning and innovating and amassing, to...leveraging all you've learned. The former leads to burnout and grave dissatisfaction, the latter to the greatest joy and fulfillment life has to offer. My guest, researcher and expert on this topic is Arthur Brooks. Arthur went from being a professional French horn, to earning degrees online that landed him as a think tank president amongst Ivy League scholars, which you'll hear was an embarrassment to him for a while, to today being...OK, this is long...the William Henry Bloomberg Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Professor of Management Practice at the Harvard Business School, where he teaches courses on leadership, happiness, and social entrepreneurship. He is also a columnist at The Atlantic, where he writes the popular weekly “How to Build a Life” column. Brooks is the author of 12 books, including the 2022 #1 New York Times bestseller From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life, which is my focus for this series. A recent Harvard Magazine article labeled Arthur as, "The Happiness Revolutionary." Somehow between his content and his personality Arthur has become a massively influential guy who is now called on and cited by people such as Oprah, the Dalai Lama and The White House. You're about to hear him school us in how our first half of life is spent leveraging fluid knowledge, and that our brain is created for this. But around the midpoint of our life, our brain has less ability for fluid knowledge and transitions to great ability in crystallized knowledge. If you are aware of and embrace this, you will find great peace and continue progress instead of feeling you are in a race for time to keep up the initiatives and pace from the first half of life. June 15-16 of 2023 I'll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit. If you are looking to influence people for the better, professionally or personally, I invite you to join us.

Leveraging Thought Leadership with Peter Winick
What does it take to write a book? Or host a podcast? Or start getting speaking engagements based on the content you've put out? To find the answers we've invited the Human Venn diagram, Christina Wallace. Christina has crafted a career at the intersection of business, technology, and the arts. She is a Senior Lecturer of Entrepreneurial Management at Harvard Business School, an angel investor, speaker, and Author of "The Portfolio Life: How to Future Proof Your Career, Avoid Burnout, and Build a Life Bigger Than Your Business Card" We start our conversation by learning how Christina got started by writing bits and pieces about the ideas she had that she wanted to share. These small bits led to getting a column at Forbes.com and eventually becoming the co-host of The Limit Does Not Exist podcast. Christina shares how all of these mediums gave her real-time feedback from her audience and made writing her book so much easier. Christina explains how each chapter in her book had roots in a podcast episode of the written article that acted as the first draft and then came to full maturity in the book. Not only did all of the previous content give birth to the book but it gave proof to literary agents and publishers that she not only had an established audience but they were actively seeking to know more. Three Key Takeaways: · You can get lucky by being in the right place at the right time. It takes courage to say yes to the opportunity presented. · Having a library of online content is like leaving an everlasting trail of breadcrumbs that lead back to your services. · Thought Leaders need to proactively tell the story of why they are the expert on the topics they discuss.

The BJJ Mental Coach Podcast with Gustavo Dantas
Welcome to episode 141, today, we are excited to have Chatri Sityodtong, the founder, chairman, and CEO of ONE Championship, Asia's largest sports media property. ONE ranked #2 overall in 2021 digital viewership with over 13.8 billion video views across Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. It sits just behind the #1-ranked NBA, which boasts over 14.5 billion for 2021. The UFC is #5, with 6.6 billion.Chatri has over 35 years of martial arts experience as a student, fighter, teacher, and coach. He is a certified senior Muay Thai instructor under Kru Yodtong Senanan. I apologize if I'm not pronouncing it correctly. He also holds a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Master Renzo Gracie.For Chatri, the biggest misconception about martial arts is that it's about fighting. He believes that the true essence of martial arts is the journey of continuous self-improvement mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Through martial arts, Chatri inherited integrity, humility, honor, respect, courage, discipline, and more. Above all, it empowered him with an unbreakable warrior spirit to conquer adversity in life.Born in Thailand, his rags-to-riches life story has inspired millions worldwide on BBC, CNN, Financial Times, Bloomberg, and other media. At his lowest point, he survived on $4 per day in the United States. His only suitcase contained everything he owned, and he lived on one meal daily. Yet, he didn't grow up in poverty as a child in Thailand. Instead, Chatri grew up in a loving, well-to-do home. Life only changed when his parents lost everything in the Asian Financial Crisis. Poverty ripped his family apart. And his father abandoned the family, leaving Chatri to pick up the pieces as the oldest son.Chatri is a philanthropist, a motivational speaker, and a serial entrepreneur who has founded, invested in, or served as CEO of several successful companies, including ONE Championship and Evolve MMA. He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from Tufts University.In this episode, Chatri will share his insights on martial arts, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, the challenges and rewards of building a global sports media brand, and much more.So, get ready to learn from one of the most influential and inspiring figures in martial arts and business right after jiu-jitsu tribe's message.

ESG Decoded is a podcast powered by ClimeCo to share updates related to business innovation and sustainability in a clear and actionable manner. In this episode, Kaitlyn Allen welcomes back Bill Davis, founder of Stance Capital, which was established in 2016 to bring to market investment portfolios that mitigate material environmental, social, and governance risks and generate excess returns while at the same time allowing investors to align their portfolios with their belief systems. Bill has a BA from Connecticut College and has taught or been a guest lecturer at Columbia University, Harvard College & Harvard Business School, MIT & MIT Sloan, and Vanderbilt University. Bill also serves on the boards of Ceres and the Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation. Listen as she and Bill discuss the current controversies and debates related to ESG and the need for practitioners and investors to regroup and revisit the scope and purpose of this work. Bill and Kaitlyn think of ESG as an agnostic risk screening of material issues, a different concept than values-based investing, in which investors seek to align investments with their personal values. This distinction is critical to defusing the poorly informed bluster about ESG, in which critics have incorrectly conflated the concept of ESG screening with values-based investing. Check out our previous episode (#54), How ESG Investment Products Are Built, also featuring Bill! https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/esg-decoded/id1553348139?i=1000555720018 Additional resource boosts include: Stance's Investment Performance Summary: https://www.stancecap.com/performance Stance Equity ESG Large Cap Core ETF (stancefunds.com): http://stancefunds.com/ ESG ETFs, Sustainable Investments | Stance Capital: https://www.stancecap.com/ Subscribe to the ESG Decoded Podcast on your favorite streaming platform, YouTube, and social media so that you're notified of new episodes.

Jess is the founder and executive chairman of inDinero, a business that runs thousands of companies' tax, accounting, and finance operations. She is also the Co-Founder and Chair of Astonishing Labs and founding partner of MahWay. This venture builder creates innovative, industry-changing billion-dollar businesses that improve the world. She earned her Associate of Arts from Bard College and her Bachelor's in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley. She is in the Harvard Business School President's Program and a Young President's Organization (YPO) member. She enjoys flying her commercial multi-engine pilot's license in her spare time with an instrument rating. She started her first business in high school and was has been on the cover of Inc Magazine and was recognized on both Inc. and Forbes Magazine's "30 under 30" superstar entrepreneurs. Her combined companies have a value of over one billion dollars.Show Notes: Jess's entrepreneurial journey started at 13 because she knew she "did not want to work for anyone else." She started a business to solve her own problem and then used it to solve others. Barnes and Noble was her first mentor as she was pulling books off the shelve to learn about business. She realized early how important it was to learn and grow and later get mentors and coaches to help her build her business. (11:45) Business got easier as it got larger and scaled. The hardships of the early days will not last forever. (14:30) Don't compare yourself to others...you are in competition with yourself. Focus on your "next step" and your journey! Jess likes the ratio of focusing 80% on the next 45 days, 10% on the next quarter, and 10% on the next one to five years out. (15:50) "People consistently overestimate what they can get done in the next 30 days but underestimate what they can achieve in five to ten years." (17:15) Entrepreneur communities are super important to support each other on your journey. (18:45) The real challenge is our mindset and attitude. Most entrepreneurs have an understanding of what needs to happen next. (24:25) The greatest growth comes from taking advantage of the latest trends! How are you going to leverage AI? (26:10) Time blocking is a productivity hack that people can use to accomplish more. Elon Musk does this. (30:00) What is the difference between the entrepreneurial vs. employee mindset? First, the biggest difference is you have to have a sense of ownership. Everything starts and ends with you. Second, you have to be optimistic at all times. This also bleeds over to your personal life. Third, you need to grow yourself constantly. How do you evolve as a person and leader? (32:15) "There is no such thing as work-life balance. As an entrepreneur, your business is part of you. You don't have spouse life or child life balance...they are a part of your life." (37:00) How do you have an optimistic attitude when things are going wrong and during a crisis? (41:00) If you have never taken a leap in your career or life, you are probably not pushing the boundaries enough. (43:00) When Jess moved from software to biotech, she knew it would be a ten-year investment and she had to be willing to be uncomfortable and start all over. Being an outsider allows you to see things that others may miss, push the boundaries, and be innovative. "The more you learn, the more you are able to learn new stuff and it becomes exponential." Examples are Steve Jobs and Elon Musk (48:00) Jess gives insights she has about the future based on her research and investments. (51:45) If Jess had the ability to give a State of the Union Address to the American people what would she say? If you enjoyed this episode, please follow us on Apple or Spotify and give us a review.
