Free yourself from financial bondage w/ Damion Lupo - #49

How You Can Use Wisdom To Become A Modern Elder w/ Chip Conley - #47
This week's guest - Chip Conley - takes me back full circle to my time at the University of Pennsylvania where I studied applied psychology in graduate school. I remember reading Chip's book, Emotional Equations, and thinking that everything I thought I knew about well-being and happiness needed to be re-calibrated. What I really love about Chip is that his books are not academic tombs with no relevance. They are grounded in his experience as a hotelier entrepreneur for 26 years and more recently, as a strategic advisor to the founders of Airbnb.
Chip has a brand-new book, Wisdom at Work – launching in Sept. It's a great read on how you can leverage wisdom that comes from experience to stay relevant at work or to pivot to something new and different.
