marketing expert Joe polish brings some

of the most skilled focused and

brilliant minds in the world where they

delve into a vast array of topics that

are overlooked and underappreciated by

even some of the most astute

businesspeople when he brought Tony

Robbins and Peter Diamandis together to

share their wisdom and knowledge about

what it takes to achieve true greatness

an absolute fulfillment it made for one

of the most powerful provocative

interviews of all time it's a must

listen for entrepreneurs and seasoned

business owners alike

[Music]

well I'm um that's just a lot of things

I'm involved with I'm very passionate

about feeding people I think you know my

story when I was 11 years old we had no

money no food and stuff gentleman came

and fed my family and he wasn't used as

a delivery boy but it changed my life

because it made me believe strangers

care in it

my father didn't respond very well the

situation he was very angry and he left

our family shortly thereafter but for me

it left an indelible mark that people

really care if strangers care about my

family I care about them and and maybe

want to do something so I promised that

myself somebody well enough to do feed

other people so I 17 I fed two families

and then four and then eight and then a

hundred thousand and then a million and

the last seven years we've been feeding

two million through the foundation and

I've matched it with two million to four

million a year so I've had forty two

million people in my life and then I

started working on this book four years

ago

thank you thank you sure we're gonna

this book and I interviewed 50 of the

smartest financial people on the planet

um you know people like John Paulson had

done an interview in ten years and I got

one of the first ones for them and Ray

Dalio and people like that and these are

all people not from the lucky sperm Club

that he's the people that did it on

their own they built it from scratch no

one gave them a break and I'm getting

all these insights and I'm watching

Congress passed these laws where they

changed the budget and they cut food

stamps and I don't call it food stamps

anymore but that's basically what it is

by eight point two billion dollars which

basically means every person who needs

food in this country who's not the

position anybody in this room sin has to

go without food one week a month for 12

months out of the year unless the

private sector picks it up which is

their hope and most the private sector

is really stressed so I went to the

feeding America and I said you know what

if I gave you all the profits this book

and all the money I'm getting all the

money I'll ever get how many people can

I feed and they said ten million people

and I said I'm in and then I got more

excited I added a bunch of money to it

so I added it to fifty million people

and then I said I'll do matching funds

200 million which you qualify to go

awesome so we focus in on three things

one is the X PRIZE and and Tony has been

extraordinary generous as a

philanthropist and a number of you in

the room here who are members of

innovation board thank you for those of

you who are part of that some of our

trustees in the room here and the story

there again I think you guys all know

this is my nine-year-old dream and

myself was wanting to go into space and

giving up on NASA being the way I was

gonna get to go there and saying there's

got to be some way somewhere somebody

can build a spaceship that I can go on

to and organized a ten million dollar

prize and as my dear friend Dan Sullivan

says didn't have the ten million dollars

at the time but had every faith that I

would just took me six years to find it

and that 10 million dollar prize

launched a private spaceflight industry

that Richard Branson is now

commercializing a number of their teams

are doing but on the heels of that we

said this idea of asking the world what

do you want to solve what is a problem

that should be solved that you think you

know it's a sin that it's not solved yet

and realizing that there is so much

brilliance around the world that a kid

today has more power than the president

states did 20 years ago in terms of the

computational power or the knowledge

they have and that you know used to be

only the kings and queens that could

solve things in the past and now it's

any of us can solve something and what

we do is we work with the top

philanthropists and corporations in some

cases governments and put up these large

prizes a million or a few million

dollars actually Christian Cudicini who

runs here oh axis spin out does the

smaller prizes we are doing these ten

million twenty thirty million dollar

prizes and saying I don't care where you

went to school whatever you've done

before you solve this and you win I'll

just mention one that that we did

together who's Tony Robbins the DeVos

family and Elon Musk that funded a

global learning XPrize 250 million kids

around the world nearly 700 million

women around the world can't read write

or do arithmetic and we put up a prize

that said if you can build an app that

can take a child where there's nothing

no school

no adults nothing and take that child

from illiteracy to basic reading writing

in numeracy in 18 months you win 600

teams entered that competition we're

down to 200 delivering software

they'll be in Tanzania in about 14

months and with that actually John

Raymond Tilson one of our sponsors in

that will be that winning soft will be

open source to the world so that every

device becomes a teacher

so that's XPrize really excited about

that we're really focused on mapping the

ocean floors thank you with with my dear

friend Eric Anderson in the back here

co-founded Planetary Resources and the

concept here is that we think of things

as scarce on earth and certain things

are the beautiful lands that we have and

we shouldn't rape and pillage them but

we live in a solar system filled with

resources and the concept here of

planetary resources is we are using the

most advanced technology 3d printed

spacecraft AI onboard sensors have never

flown in orbit before to go out to

prospect near-earth asteroids which are

rich in in fuels platinum group metals

construction materials and those same

spacecraft when pointed down towards the

Earth we've just discovered and we're

really excited about this can actually

map and predict the yield of every acre

of cropland on planet Earth and really

help us feed the planet much more

efficiently so we just launched our

first spacecraft next one goes up in

first quarter the last one which is sort

of like you know I think relevant to all

of us is the idea that we can all live

30 or 40 more healthy years in our life

and to Dan's point earlier about you

know living to 95 but not 95 living to

195 on you know whatever it might be

we're at a moment in time where we have

to realize the software that runs our

body our genome what happens to you

isn't happenstance it isn't like this oh

my god I happen to come down with that

that you know your destiny is in your

genes

it's also in the environment all these

kinds of thing

but and this is one of 21 of our

investors we created a company called

human longevity craig Venter who

sequence the first human genome and Bob

Murray and I founded it together and

it's built the world's largest genome

sequencing facility on the planet

we've sequence more human genomes and

the rest the world combined and not just

the genome your microbiome a full body

MRI 2300 chemicals in your bloodstream

the most massive data set about you and

we've mined that data to actually help

you understand what is going on it's the

most complete information data set in

the world and we've also just a few of

you in the audience here I know a

benefiting from this in our health

nucleus we're now actually sequencing

cancers to help you know what drug

specifically works for you in your

cancer not just for everybody who

happens to have that general cancer so

that's a big one I think that's

something that's gonna impact all of us

is you know making 100 years old and you

60 right you'll get younger that's it

awesome what are the biggest trade-offs

that both of you consider may be

negative in order to do what it is you

do because you're both I mean incredibly

driven what I would consider insane

schedules but at the same time you're

making massive contributions to humanity

so what are the trade-offs that you

would consider like you know we work our

asses off we do a lot of stuff but this

is what we had to sacrifice in order to

do it if you think of it that way I

think if you think of it as a sacrifice

then you're gonna build frustration or

resentment

I really don't if you think it's that

question shouldn't do it I think the

challenge is that most people have this

illusion about life work balance and

that's you know if you're gonna

accomplish it's what people are laughing

is you know right what's true is life

work integration so I was just in twenty

one country or seven country twenty one

days but who's with me is my family

who's with me as my friends and I've

done well enough to have a plane and

that rooms and all that kind of cool

stuff makes it but when I didn't we

still we pumped it together and

beginning days it was coach and dragging

ourselves around but I thought it was

great for my kids to have schooling but
