156: Nir Eyal: Indestractible

November 11, 2019

Nir Eyal is an author, lecturer and investor known for his bestselling book, Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products.  His new book is a life-changer: Indestractible: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. 

Nir writes:  

"I’m the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. I have taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Design School. I’ve sold two technology companies since 2003 and now help teams design more engaging products.

He writes: "For most of my career I’ve worked in the video gaming and advertising industries where I learned, applied (and at times rejected) the techniques used to motivate and manipulate users. I write to help companies create behaviors that benefit their users while educating people on how to build healthful habits in their own lives.

As an active angel investor, I put my money where my mouth is by backing habit-forming products I believe improve lives. Some of my past investments include Eventbrite (NYSE:EB), Refresh.io (acquired by LinkedIn), Worklife (acquired by Cisco), Product Hunt (acquired by Angelist)Marco PoloPresence Learning7 CupsPanaKahoot!Byte FoodsFocusMate, and Anchor.fm (acquired by Spotify).

Although I received most of my education earning an advanced degree from The School of Hard Knocks, I also received an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business."

154: Stephen Chbosky: The Perks of Being a Wallflower & Imaginary Friend

154: Stephen Chbosky: The Perks of Being a Wallflower & Imaginary Friend

November 4, 2019

I met Stephen Chbosky by pure kismet... I'll tell you about it in this episode. I am honored to now know this man. And I bet that you know his book, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. :)  His NEW novel, Imaginary Friend, was published in October 2019--and that is how I met Stephen-- at a bookstore in Boston. And the rest is history--or maybe it's just the beginning... 

Stephen is novelist and screenwriter, and film director best-known for writing the New York Times bestselling coming-of-age novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower (1999), as well as for writing and directing the film version of the same book, starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller. He also wrote the screenplay for the 2005 film Rent and Disney's 2017 live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, alongside Evan Spiliotopoulos, and was co-creator, executive producer, and writer of the CBS television series Jericho, which aired from 2006 to 2008.

Most recently, he directed the 2017 drama Wonder, starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay.
