Austen Allred CEO Austen Allred was inspired to co-found Lambda School after spotting the major disconnect between a labor market in need of specialized talent, and the inaccessibility of training programs designed to fill that gap. His solution is a fully remote tech school with Income Share Agreements; rather than pay the Lambda School for training upfront, students pay a portion of their income after they've graduated and secured a job. Lambda School trains people to be software engineers at no up-front cost. Instead of paying tuition, students agree to pay a percentage of their income after they’re employed, and only if they’re making more than $50k per year. If you don’t find a job, or don’t reach that level of income, you’ll never pay a cent. Austen’s disruptive ideas on the future of education, the labor market disconnect, and the opportunity of providing opportunity at-scale have been featured in: The Harvard Business Review, The Economist, WIRED, Fast Company, TechCrunch, The New York Times, among others.

Life hack for the year I've done a very successful life hack of the year since starting this podcast. And I'm pleased to say this year is no different. Annual Charity budgets Something I came up with a few years ago to reduce general stress in my life and make me a happier and kinder person. After three years of this the results are in. It works. I spend more time being happy, my relationships are better and more good things come back my way. I feel like I actually practice being the person I aspire to be. I am actually contributing positively to charity and climate, and I've gamified it into an enjoyable process. I put at least 1% of my wealth into charities and spit it between climate and everything else. Listen on to hear the basics of implementing it and the benefits it can bring if you do.

In order to grow, you need failure. Understand and accept failure as a part of life. We often experience that learning is more effective in failure than in success because failure teaches us what works and what does not. When we embrace our strengths or limitations – we become better. People are often so afraid they’ll fail at something that they don’t try. Don’t be one of those people. Everyone has failed at something in his or her life, but not everyone tries again and again. World hard every day to reach your goals and you will. Keep going and you will find success. Subscribe!

Zack Abbott CEO and co-founder of ZBiotics, a company developing bioengineered probiotics founded in 2016. ZBiotics' product, which breaks down an unwanted byproduct of alcohol, is the first in a line of products ZBiotics is creating to help consumers actively engage in healthier lives. Beyond alcohol, ZBiotics is working on other engineered probiotics that will give the body new biological functions: everything from helping the body resist environmental toxins and infection (e.g., lead-contaminated water, radiation) to producing useful and health-promoting nutrients (e.g., fiber, high-quality protein). By building genetically engineered products that solve real human needs, he hopes to reverse the misinformation and lack of understanding that has contributed to the negative public perception of GMOs. Zack has a PhD in microbiology & immunology from the University of Michigan, where he enjoyed his research untangling complex and elegant webs of bacterial gene regulation.

A healthy sense of self-confidence is all about having a balanced view of yourself — taking pride in your abilities while recognizing your flaws. Confidence can help you to take on the world with more energy and determination, resulting in better relationships, quality work and a feeling of being connected with your surroundings. Have a coach Coaching is still not understood by everyone, and that is entirely normal. It is not a must to have a coach, and yes you can get yourself to a higher potential without a coach also, but with a coach, you will get there quicker, better and most importantly with more confidence. A coach will understand and help you understand the source of the lack of confidence and fear of failure. A coach can give you ideas for ways to improve yourself, but more importantly they can help them become aware of your blind spots. Simply put, a coach will help you stoke your success.

It all starts with you. Being open-minded is important because it creates opportunities for you to learn from others. Learning about the way others live or why they believe what they do. Learning does not mean you will change your lifestyle or beliefs, but simply grow in knowledge. Having an open-mind allows you to become aware. It allows you live in a way that's more approachable. The power of surrounding yourself with the right people The people you surround yourself with can either drag you down or lift you up. Take the time to create a circle of people that are the most positive, supportive people you can find. This also means letting go of the people who are pulling you down. If you want to make a positive change in your life, remember, the people around you have a critical influence on your energy, growth and probability of success. Positive people bring out the best in you and make you feel motivated and happy. They help you when you’re in need, encourage you to go after your dreams and are there to celebrate your successes or support you as you move past your challenges. If you want to become your best self I challenge you to review, rethink, and cull through your social media and real life "friends" and find the right people and media content that will actually help you get there.

Zack Abbott CEO and co-founder of ZBiotics, a company developing bioengineered probiotics founded in 2016. ZBiotics' product, which breaks down an unwanted byproduct of alcohol, is the first in a line of products ZBiotics is creating to help consumers actively engage in healthier lives. Beyond alcohol, ZBiotics is working on other engineered probiotics that will give the body new biological functions: everything from helping the body resist environmental toxins and infection (e.g., lead-contaminated water, radiation) to producing useful and health-promoting nutrients (e.g., fiber, high-quality protein). By building genetically engineered products that solve real human needs, he hopes to reverse the misinformation and lack of understanding that has contributed to the negative public perception of GMOs. Zack has a PhD in microbiology & immunology from the University of Michigan, where he enjoyed his research untangling complex and elegant webs of bacterial gene regulation. He holds a bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley, where he double-majored in immunology and classical art & archaeology Zack and ZBiotics Connect with Zack on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/zaabbott/) Zbiotics (https://zbiotics.com/) ABOUT THE HOST My name is Sam Harris.
