Being an effective co-founder + athlete seems like a puzzle whose pieces weren’t made to go together (I want them to!)—Michael Brandt @bdm_tastemakers, co-founder of HVMN talks about his training for Boston and reflects on the support of his colleagues. https://hvmn.com/podcast/road-to-boston-ft-michael-brandt?r=kzbhpeln
If you picked up an actual paper @nytimes this Sunday, you got a gem of an illustrated short science fiction story—BETTER VERSIONS OF YOU—by the venerable Ted Chiang.
Joshua has spent the better part of twenty years helping founders get from idea to launch and from launch to thriving company. He was the president of an e-commerce platform and helped start an eco-friendly plastic company whose materials are used today across the yoga and shoe industry. In 2012, Joshua was sent on a different kind of journey—a health crisis that had him fighting for his life. With the standard of care not working, he dove deep into researching genetics, the microbiome, mitochondrial health, fasting and ketosis. In 2018 Joshua succeed in hacking his autoimmune disease and emerged an athlete, riding over 2000 miles on a single speed bike and competing in two triathlons.
