#307: Elliott Bisnow – Business, Gratitude, Mentoring, & Meditation
Elliot Bisnow is an entrepreneur. He is the co-creator of Summit and Summit At Sea - an international conference that has featured speakers like Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and Gary Vaynerchuk. Bisnow has invested in almost 50 early-stage startups, including Uber, Coinbase, Warby Parker & Allbirds.
He is the co-author of Make No Small Plans: Lessons on Thinking Big, Chasing Dreams, and Building Community
I stumbled across Elliott because he is the featured mentor in The Third Door by Alex Banayan.
Learn why he got into business, why people don’t change, how to live in gratitude, mentoring, balance, hosting a dinner party, and why he messed up his interview with Eric Schmidt.
