The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

By: DOAC
  • Summary

  • A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, at 18 I built an industry leading social media marketing company, and at 27 I resigned as CEO. At 28 I co-founded Flight Story – a marketing and communications company, and thirdweb - a software platform, making it easy to build web3 applications. I then launched private equity fund, Flight Fund, to accelerate the next generation of European unicorns. During this time I decided to launch 'The Diary Of A CEO' podcast with the simple mission of providing an unfiltered journey into the remarkable stories and untold dimensions of the world’s most influential people, experts and thinkers. Thank you for listening. My New Book: https://g2ul0.app.link/DOAC IG: https://www.instagram.com/steven LI: https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenbartlett-123

  • Moment 165: This Exercise Enhances Mood, Memory & Concentration: David Raichlen
    Jun 7 2024
    In this moment, leading professor of evolutionary biology, David Raichlen discusses how to boost the brain benefits that come from exercise. Most people know that exercise can improve cognitive function, but don’t realise that different sort of exercise, like cardio or strength training, can provide different types of neurological benefits. David says that whilst all exercise is beneficial to the brain, research shows that the best sort of physical activity is a combination of physical and cognitive challenges. This helps the brain function as it copies how humans evolved to find food and survive. So this could mean that the next time you go for a run, choose the great outdoors over the treadmill and try different routes you haven’t taken before.

Very interesting

I don't know much about AI, but I am now both excited and slightly afraid, but I will now be doing lots of my own reading and research into it. I think it could hopefully be used to make a business out of, so that's whatcI will be trying.

Fantastic. Perfect timing

I sense Steven starts out quite sceptical as I did.Yet Jessie explains the simple science behind glucose spikes and their short and long term effects on our health. it has changed my outlook completely and I am a huge fan. I have bought her book and spread the word throughout my family and I have good reason as I'm sat in A&E having had a heart attack as I write this review. interestingly, our beautiful NHS are offering me cereal for breakfast, puddings for lunch and zero salads options. I'm not blaming them but their low fat education needs to change fast. the end of the book made me sob as I'm here, right now, fighting for a future and needing to say all of the things I should have said.
