    Erik Kaiser, Inventor and CEO of Crush The Memory

    One day, Erik Kaiser, was worth $200m and the next day he was worth -$5m
    It was a moment which changed his perception of the world, changed his personality, and ultimately set him on a new trajectory.
    He has risen from the ashes, more times than he has been burnt to the ground. He shares the harsh realities of business, to offer a truly balanced perspective. Which is quite the opposite to the glitz and glamour so many entrepreneurs these days want you to think. His favourite pastime is debunking business tweets an X 
    He solves problems through 30 years of self-funded startups and his latest venture, Crush The Memory, is the best idea I have seen in a long time!! Which we discuss at the end of our Pod conversation today. 
    Discussion Topics: What you will discover from listening to this Podcast:
    Secrets to looking youthful Carnivore lifestyle Epigenetic triggers Truth v reinforced lying   How negative thoughts age you Was Steve Jobs actually successful? Life changing impact of fatherhood EQ and leadership Losing $200m in a day Thoughts on mortality Designing Crush The Memory World’s best way to record Notes Complexity behind slick design I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
