The idea for Your One Word Book and how it came about
Entrepreneurial lessons you wouldn’t want to miss
He has been on the entrepreneurial path for quite some time. He only took being entrepreneur seriously when he was 16. He had his first company at 19, a biotech company. He says it sucked but he built it up, sold it and became a venture capitalist. He basically does work where he helps entrepreneurs believe in themselves and in what they’re doing.
In today’s Hardcore MBA podcast, Erlend and Matthew talk about personal development. Their takes and experiences in their own personal growth.
Topics you shouldn’t miss are:
On Tony Robbins. Erlend explains how listening to Tony Robbins influenced him in his personal growth. Tony Robbins explained things to him in a way that he never understood before. However, Erlend has a caveat. A lot of Tony Robbins’ material is ego masturbation. Erlend believes that if you live your life trying to look good for other people, you can never be satisfied because you cannot please all people. You can’t make everyone happy. Matthew believes that Tony Robbins is more like an alpha male. He feels that Tony Robbins’ approach may be unconventional. It’s more about getting people to do something big in front of others. Matthew thinks that in real life, significant events or decisions you make may not necessarily have a big audience. Erlend believes you can have a magical moment but it depends on what you value which could be a good cup of coffee with a good friend.
