Emmett Shine: The Eyes of an Artist

Emmett pioneered the Direct-to-Consumer aesthetic. The bright colors, the flat design, and the sans serif fonts are a direct result of his work. At Gin Lane, he worked with brands like Bonobos, SweetGreen, Harry’s, Smile Direct Club, and Recess. Now, he’s switching gears. Emmett and his team launched Pattern, a family of brands with products and guidance that inspire people to live a more present life. Emmett isn’t a Luddite, but he’s skeptical of the effects of modern technology and our obsession with efficiency. I admire Emmett’s ability to match the intuitive and the intellectual, the quantitative and the qualitative. He loves to read but doesn’t get bogged down by thedogma and precedent. He loves to be creative but isn’t trapped by the myth of the messy artist whose life is in shambles. He’s a sharp critic, a careful observer, and a prolific designer. And in this episode, Emmett reveals his true colors. But I’ll warn you, there are some curse words in this episode due t...

Adam Robinson: Searching for Secrets

In December, I went to a live taping of theTim Ferriss Podcastat the famous 92nd Street Y in New York City. There was a surprise guest at the event named Adam Robinson, and after hearing him speak, I tapped my friend on the shoulder and told him I’d find a way to get him on the podcast. Adam Robinson cracked the SAT before co-founding the Princeton Review. He also wrote the only test preparation book to ever become aNew York Timesbestseller. He attended The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania as an undergrad before studying law at Oxford University in England. He’s a rated chess master with a Life Title and as a teenager was personally mentored by Bobby Fischer—considered by many experts to be the greatest chess player of all time—as he prepared for the world championship. Today, he applies his unique philosophy and methodology as an independent global investment advisor to the heads of some of the world's largest hedge funds. After this conversation, I can confiden...
