    Top Tip

    Failure is the best teacher




    The quickest road to success is to possess an attitude towards failure. In order to grow, you need failure. Understand and accept failure as a part of life.


    We often experience that learning is more effective in failure than in success because failure teaches us what works and what does not. When we embrace our strengths or limitations – we become better.


    People are often so afraid they’ll fail at something that they don’t try. Don’t be one of those people. Everyone has failed at something in his or her life, but not everyone tries again and again.


    World hard every day to reach your goals and you will. Keep going and you will find success.

    143: Hacking the microbiome to unlock superpowers - Zack Abbott, founder and CEO - ZBiotics

    143: Hacking the microbiome to unlock superpowers - Zack Abbott, founder and CEO - ZBiotics

    Zack Abbott

    CEO and co-founder of ZBiotics, a company developing bioengineered probiotics founded in 2016.


    ZBiotics' product, which breaks down an unwanted byproduct of alcohol, is the first in a line of products ZBiotics is creating to help consumers actively engage in healthier lives.


    Beyond alcohol, ZBiotics is working on other engineered probiotics that will give the body new biological functions: everything from helping the body resist environmental toxins and infection (e.g., lead-contaminated water, radiation) to producing useful and health-promoting nutrients (e.g., fiber, high-quality protein).


    By building genetically engineered products that solve real human needs, he hopes to reverse the misinformation and lack of understanding that has contributed to the negative public perception of GMOs.


    Zack has a PhD in microbiology & immunology from the University of Michigan, where he enjoyed his research untangling complex and elegant webs of bacterial gene regulation. He holds a bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley, where he double-majored in immunology and classical art & archaeology

    Top Tips

    Build your confidence




    Self-confidence is a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgment. A healthy sense of self-confidence is all about having a balanced view of yourself — taking pride in your abilities while recognizing your flaws.


    Confidence can help you to take on the world with more energy and determination, resulting in better relationships, quality work and a feeling of being connected with your surroundings.


    Have a coach




    Coaching is still not understood by everyone, and that is entirely normal. It is not a must to have a coach, and yes you can get yourself to a higher potential without a coach also, but with a coach, you will get there quicker, better and most importantly with more confidence.


    A coach will understand and help you understand the source of the lack of confidence and fear of failure. A coach can give you ideas for ways to improve yourself, but more importantly they can help them become aware of your blind spots.


    Simply put, a coach will help you stoke your success.

Engaging and welcoming

Listening to this podcast has made it feel as if I am talking to my friends. I loved how Sam made me feel welcome, even though I don't know him personally, it felt like I did. I even laughed a couple of times which isn't something I do when listening to podcasts. This has got to be one of the best podcasts I have listened to. I loved every second of it and will keep listening. Another thing I loved was how it didn't feel long. It was so refreshing and entertaining that the minutes went by.
