On a week where markets roared back, the most expensive tuna ever was sold for $3.1 million, and the government shutdown officially became the third longest in history – and still with no end in sight – Dan Ferris number crunches some more historic milestones.
Because last week was Apple’s turn to suffer, Amazon is now the world’s largest company. Dan talks about how, once those companies both hit trillion-dollar valuations, something told him he was wrong. And while he got his readers out of Apple before the main meltdown, “I wish I had followed my gut.”
Dan then introduces this week’s guest – Shane Parrish, the founder, curator and wisdom seeker behind Farnam Street. What started as a personal, anonymous blog where Shane could explore what others have discovered about decision making, purposeful living, and how the world works, quickly blossomed into one of the fastest growing websites in the world.
With over a million page views, nearly 200,000 subscribers, consistently sold-out Re:Think workshops and over 3 million podcast downloads, Farnam Street has become the go-to resource that CEOs, athletes, professional coaches and entrepreneurs rely on to find signal in a world of noise.
From his idea to take Warren Buffett’s style of investing and apply it on a macro-level – snapping up cash-gushing small businesses and capital efficient “Mom and Pop” stores – to his revolutionary thinking on “Mental Models,” Shane is full of insights on how to change your investing results through changing your thinking.
