“If there's one innovation in crypto, it's incentive structures that actually drive people to do things that benefit the whole. That is so huge.

“So what I do now is essentially help students escape from their education. That's my enterprise every year. And it's always fun, because they escape quite readily. They all know that what they're making in their classes is an artificial product that doesn't actually have any particular interest for anyone except them.” – Verlyn Klinkenborg  In this episode of Outliers, I’m talking with Verlyn Klinkenborg (@verlynklinkenborg) about what he’s learned from years of farm life, his reading habits, and why writing simply can be so difficult (hint: keep your sentences short).

“When you’re first starting a fund, you're going to spend your first five years, realistically, actively raising money from LPs—and that is your primary role. It is not interfacing with founders and helping entrepreneurs; that's a small piece. I think it's important that people realize: if you just want to work with entrepreneurs all day, join an existing fund.” – Andrew Dumont Andrew Dumont (@andrewdumont) is a CEO in Residence at Tiny Capital and the Founder of Curious Capital. He was previously the CMO of Bitly and an Entrepreneur in Residence at Betaworks. He’s spent his career building and growing companies like Moz, Seesmic (acquired by Hootsuite), Stride (acquired by Copper), and Tatango.

Instead, he favors a simple cube timer to block off high productivity time slots and a yellow notepad, where he jots down his random thoughts throughout the day. Chris also shares his stance on taking supplements (spoiler: he’s not a huge fan of them), using productivity tools and apps (another spoiler: he thinks many of them are unnecessary), and he reveals his daily caffeine routine, which doesn’t include coffee.

To close out the year, we're replaying the most popular episodes of Outliers in 2020. Coming in 2nd place is Carey Smith, the Founder and CEO of Big Ass Fans responsible for growing the company from $0 to $500 million. We cover the lessons he learned building a $500M business, including the importance of brand building and endless iteration. “I think in some ways it's trite, but you really do learn an awful lot from failures. And the other thing you get from a failure — or certainly I did — was the fear of completely wasting my life. That was a much greater fear — to imagine that you wouldn't accomplish much of anything was just more than I could bear and what it moved me to was looking for other opportunities.” — Carey Smith In this episode of Outliers, I catch up with Carey Smith, the founder of Big Ass Fans, an industrial, commercial and residential fan manufacturer. We discuss where the name “Big Ass Fans” came from, how his company evolved and catered to its customers and employees, and his simple but brilliant secrets to finding success. Carey founded Big Ass Fans in 1999, and over the span of 20 years, he grew the company from $0 to $500 million. During that time, the company was lauded for its stellar treatment of employees, impressive growth without outside investors, and amazing customer service. After selling the company in 2017, Carey moved on to found the business incubator Unorthodox Ventures, where he helps disruptive founders build successful brands and companies.  Full show notes with selected links, quotes, and more: https://www.danielscrivner.com/notes/carey-smith-outliers-show-notes The full transcript can also be found here: https://www.danielscrivner.com/notes/carey-smith-outliers-transcript Explore more guests and episodes at danielscrivner.com/podcast.

“I strongly believe that we are all born explorers. In the sense that when you're one year old you learn how to walk, you walk out of the house, and you start to wonder what's hidden between yourself and the horizon. And soon you will start to wonder, what's even beyond your horizon? So this spirit of exploration, that's something we all have. I kept it more than most people, but it never goes away. We all have it to a certain degree. Being an explorer is not something you begin being, but something you slowly stop being. You still have it until you die.” – Erling Kagge In this episode of Outliers, I talk with famous Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge about his record setting expeditions and the importance of exploration in life. He’s the first person to complete the infamous Three Poles Challenge on foot by making it to the North Pole, South Pole, and Summit of Mount Everest. We discuss his philosophy on the importance of silence and walking, and a few of his favorite books (including how a classic like Frankenstein can be relevant to technology today).

POPULAR ⭐️ “What is this thing we call technology? In the cosmological sense, like, where does it fit in? How does it relate to life? And my current summary would be that it is an extension of life and therefore is not contrary to life. It's an extended version of life—and that gives me hope, because it means that we can always make a greener version of whatever we make.” – Kevin Kelly In this episode of Outliers, I’m talking with Kevin Kelly (@kevin2kelly) of WIRED magazine and Recomendo fame about his perspective on technology and its evolution. We discuss AI, AR, and how humans can benefit from partnering with and embracing tech.

“I believe everything happens for a reason. I don't have any regrets, even though I've done some stupid stuff in my life—like, really dumb things. I wouldn't take it back, because I learned more from my flaws and failures than I have from the “successes” of life. Those have been the character builders.” – Paula Faris In this episode of Outliers, I’m talking with Paula Faris (@paulafaris) about leaving prominent television host roles at the height of her career to find her strengths, her vocational calling, and her true self. Paula shares a few of her favorite books and what to ask yourself when searching for your vocational calling (just three simple questions).  Full show notes with selected links, quotes, and more from the episode: www.danielscrivner.com/notes/paula-faris-outliers-show-notes The full transcript can also be found here: www.danielscrivner.com/notes/paula-faris-outliers-transcript   Explore more guests and episodes at danielscrivner.com/podcast.

POPULAR ⭐️ “I was really interested in achieving good health along with performance, and I sacrificed my health in the name of performance. So I wondered if there was a way in which we could kind of have both—that I could be strong and lean and fit and happy and healthy and productive and shiny and sparkly and all the things that people want, without all of this pain and suffering and sacrifice.” — Mark Sisson On this episode of Outliers, I’m talking with Mark Sisson (@Mark_Sisson) about his transition from a focus on pure performance to one on holistic health, and how he built a $200-million dollar disruptive health food brand that has captured the recent wave of paleo, primal, and ancestral health. Mark dives into his daily choices, activity, and meals (hint: he loves grass-fed steak).   Full show notes with selected links, quotes, and the big ideas in this episode: www.danielscrivner.com/notes/mark-sisson-outliers-show-notes The full transcript can also be found here: www.danielscrivner.com/notes/mark-sisson-outliers-transcript Explore more guests and episodes at danielscrivner.com/podcast.

“I do believe that if you want to level up your leadership skills, if you want to contribute at a higher level... everybody should have some form of assistance.” — Casey Putschoegl In this episode of Outliers, I’m talking with Casey about how she’s built a successful executive assistant agency with a focus on quality relationships, a rigorous selection process, and true partnerships between assistants and executives. Her insights on self-reflection and honest feedback are incredibly applicable to leaders from all walks of life. Casey describes what it’s like to work with a leadership coach, integrating work with real life, and what to look for in a great assistant (it’s more nuanced than you might think).

“I think humor is incredibly important, and I think it’s important even in industrial sales—and people don’t make enough use of it.” — Carey Smith In this episode of Outliers, I catch up with Carey Smith, a brilliant entrepreneur who founded Big Ass Fans and grew it from $0 to $500 million in the span of 20 years. We discuss: What Carey learned from his first business venture (which actually flopped). The evolution of Big Ass Fans, how the company got its name and why it worked. The importance of creating a company culture that puts both employees and customers first. Why it’s not enough to just have an idea or even a solution when starting a business. This is an empowering conversation packed with advice for entrepreneurs and business owners — and it proves nice guys can, in fact, finish first.

“I’m in the camp that is super passionate about space as a tool for transformation. So what energizes me is getting humans into space.” — Dylan Taylor Many of us let those dreams go when we started thinking about our careers, including Dylan Taylor (@SpaceAdvisor). In his late 30s, Dylan had some success in the business world, but after reading “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch, he began reflecting on one of his earliest passions: space. Fast-forward to a decade later, and Dylan is now one of the top 10 investors in space technology. He currently serves as the Chairman and CEO of Voyager Space Holdings, a global space holding firm that acquires and operates companies in the realm of space exploration. On this episode of Outliers, I speak with Dylan about all things space technology. He explains how space has the capability to change humanity and how he chooses which space companies to invest in. He also discusses the future of space manufacturing and space tourism. (Spoiler: Space tourism is taking off, and you’ll probably know someone who’s been to space within the next few years.)

Popular Episode ⭐️ “It’s not just how you sound. It’s your voice. It’s who you are. It’s what you want to say. And if you have a tool that can help you express yourself, isn’t that better?” — Jessica Hansen On this episode of Outliers, I talk with Jessica about her experiences working with some of NPR’s most recognizable voices. She also walks us through some of her “secret” voice techniques, the ones she typically shares only with her coaching clients. But if you’re thinking, It’s too late for me to improve the way I speak, you’re wrong. Jessica says the whole “old dog, new tricks” thing is a total sham when it comes to voice work. Whether you’re 12 or 92, you can work on your vocal skills. Jessica also reveals her go-to breathing technique for calming your nerves before a big presentation — it’s helpful even for just another regular day at work.
