This is a very thought provoking conversation between Reid Hoffman (co-founder of LinkedIn) and Brian Chesky (co-founder of Airbnb), about what Airbnb did in the early days (and still does) to help it scale to a $30 billion dollar business. Lots of gems in this one.
Wow – what an amazing conversation.

Having now listened to hundreds (maybe thousands?) of podcasts, we thought it might be time to start compiling the best findings and recommendations we have heard. Given the crazy flu this year, we wanted to get started with immunity. Getting sick sucks, but there are ways to reduce your risk. Here’s a recipe, pieced together from interviews with Tim Ferriss, Rhonda Patrick, and many other high performers, on how to avoid getting sick and keep your immune system functioning properly.
Tim’s first book, The 4-Hour Workweek, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. Thousands have asked how he would update it today — and many have asked why he hasn’t updated it since 2009.
For this episode, he discusses common questions and misperceptions, and how he would adjust certain chapters and recommendations.
Tim Ferriss, the host of “The Tim Ferriss Show” podcast and the author of several best-selling books, including “The 4-Hour Workweek” and “Tribe of Mentors,” has built an entire empire around offering life-hacking advice, but when someone suggested he try meditation, he resisted for a while. He tried various forms, then eventually dove head first into doing a 10-day silent retreat, where he came face-to-face with a long-buried childhood trauma that made him re-evaluate how he cared for himself.
In this episode, Tim explores fear, something we all deal with. Specifically, how to manage, mitigate, and overcome fear.
In addition to Tim’s own experiences, we’ll hear how Sir Richard Branson, Maria Sharapova , Vince Vaughn, and Caroline Paul have battled their own fears.
