My Chat with Vishen Lakhiani - founder of Mindvalley



It was a treat to be Vishen Lakhiani's guest on his Mindvalley podcast series recently. I consider Mindvalley to be an exemplary pioneer of knowledge sharing and lifelong learning, removing the lid off human potential.


I invite you to listen in to our conversation, which includes the impromptu application of my key principles of radical business creativity to audience members, as well as mention of how Mindvalley itself has successfully applied these principles:

Blast from the Past



What is this handsome piece of machinery? It is none other than the fabled Trabant – the crown jewel in the portfolio of former communist cars.


These beauties are increasing rare to see on the streets, but this one is proudly parked in front of a downtown hotel in Budapest. Notice the fine features, attention to detail and irresistible color. Its special qualities prompted me to feature the Trabant in this Harvard Business Review article about customer experience design:


If you look closely, you will notice plants growing next to the back tire – a sign that this Trabant is comfortable where it’s at and may not be going anywhere soon.

The Wonder of Seafood

It was great to revisit Portsmouth, New Hampshire for a retreat with the leadership team of Slade Gorton. Slade Gorton is both America’s original seafood family and a frontline, woman-owned business in a very male-dominated industry:


Fun fact: Alongside engaging discussions, our group took part in a customized heptathlon competition – in honor of the summer Olympics going on concurrently in Tokyo.


Interesting fact: Portsmouth was the venue for the peace treaty that ended the 1904–05 Russian-Japanese War, for which U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize.
