#111: Future Proof Yourself with Jay Samit

Future Proof Yourself! 


In today’s episode, we are chatting with Jay Samit, a best selling author, entrepreneur and digital media innovator. He is the author of best-selling book, Disrupt You, as well as his new book, Future Proofing You. He has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for startups, advises Fortune 500 firms, transformed entire industries, revamped government institutions, and for three decades, has continued to be at the forefront of global trends.


In this episode, we chat about how Jay was at the forefront of many industries, how he got his start in media and his experience with dyslexia (and how 1 in 3 CEOs have it). We’ll also talk more about Jay’s new book, Future Proofing You, how he mentored a man from couch surfer to self-made millionaire, the most significant changes to business because of the pandemic, and we’ll discuss NFTs and Augmented Reality.
