  • Your Problems Don't Matter, Here's Why | Talk at the Precious Dreams Foundation

    Look, the internet has created vast amounts of opportunity, no matter what your foundation is... Frankly, I'm of the mindset that if you have faced adversity that you're actually better off than people who haven't faced adversity because you're hungry and willing to put in the work to get yours. Humbled that I was given the opportunity to give this talk at the Precious Dreams Foundation - let me know what your thoughts on this podcast on twitter @GaryVee ;)

  • Chain XChange Fireside Chat

    Artificial intelligence (AI), artificial general intelligence (AGI), and artificial super intelligence (ASI) are obviously really hot topics right now, but I think there’s a big lack of clarity in the system... I usually hear people mention that AI is going to take our jobs or that it will destroy our economy and force us to use a Universal Basic Income (UBI) as a result, when in actuality, I think it’s going to be a tool that will allow us to become faster and focus on more important tasks. In the same way that people thought tractors would get rid of the jobs of farmers, we actually just got faster and they allowed us to achieve more.

  • Why Technology is Not a Bubble
    Goldman Sachs

    Is there a bubble in technology? Goldman Sachs Research's Peter Oppenheimer doesn't think so. Despite the recent stumbles in some of tech's biggest names, the sector continues to dominate global stock indexes. "The thing that's really set apart [today's] technology revolution as we're seeing it expressed in the stock market since the financial crisis is that these companies have been very successful," says Oppenheimer. "They've been very dominant in terms of returns, but they've also been extraordinarily successful in terms of their earnings power, and their valuations have not become that extreme." Oppenheimer draws attention to just how large the tech sector has become by comparing tech companies' valuations to country GDPs and discusses the challenges facing today's most dominant players.

  • SUNDAY SERMON: How to Profit From Your Past, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO261
    The MFCEO Project

    It seems like everyday I get somebody emailing me or messaging me complaining or beating themselves up about something they said or did in the past. Part of me gets that, but most of me doesn't. Complaining about the past is illogical. Beating yourself up about your past is pointless. Instead, you should be using your past to benefit your present & your future. How do the happiest, most satisfied people do that? That’s what we talk about in today’s Sunday Sermon.

  • 645: Understanding Digital Strategy
    HBR IdeaCast

    Sunil Gupta, a professor at Harvard Business School, argues that many companies are still doing digital strategy wrong.

He recommends emulating the multi-faceted strategies of leading digital companies. Gupta's the author of “Driving Digital Strategy: A Guide to Reimagining Your Business."
