Creating The World's Biggest Hedge Fund with Richard Craib

Richard Craib is on the podcast this week to discuss how he and his company are building the last hedge fund—Numerai. Richard has found that virtually all hedge funds today are continuously duplicating research and strategies. This lack of originality leads to less than stellar performance, and makes it difficult for new funds with original ideas to emerge. Numerai is built to solve this problem, as it's the first hedge fund to source original stock market signals, built from any data set from anyone in the world with zero barriers. 

The Art and Psychology of Sales with Jody Williamson

Jody Williamson is on the podcast this week to discuss the art and psychology of sales.

With over 25 years of experience and having worked with companies of all sizes and across all industries, Jody has discovered that the traditional sales model simply doesn't work—and he's here to explain the new one that does.

If you've ever been set up to be productive only to find that you didn't get nearly as much done as you were hoping, it's not your fault. Your mind and body have been hacked! (And Kary can help.)

Selling Priceless Experiences with Steve Sims
