My conversation with Dave Asprey, founder and CEO of Bulletproof

“I made a resolution that I was going to spend my energy on things that I was really good at, or uniquely good at.”

— Dave Asprey

I host a weekly radio show on SiriusXM 111, Business Radio Powered by Wharton, called Work and Life. We publish edited versions of my conversations as free podcasts. I invite you to listen to the episode (embedded below) that is my conversation with Dave Asprey, founder and CEO of Bulletproof, a company known for its famous coffee, whose mission is to improve client performance through cutting-edge nutrition. He founded Bulletproof after spending years and over $250,000 to hack his own biology. He lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, used techniques to upgrade his brain by more than 20 IQ points, and lowered his biological age by learning to sleep more efficiently in less time. Dave took my Total Leadership course on his way to earning an MBA from Wharton in 2004.

In this episode we discuss Bulletproof’s early days and Dave’s inspiration for pursuing optimal performance. He describes the Bulletproof lifestyle and the fascinating psychology of will power. Dieting and transforming your life for the better doesn’t have to be an excruciating process. It can be joyful. Tune in to find out how from one of the modern masters of the quantified self.
