Description by @ErnestMistiaen

Andy and Rich tell about their journey with Headspace. For those who don't know Headpsace; it's a meditation app. What I really liked about this episode is the chemistry between Andy and Rich. You feel how they companionship has grown throughout the years. Also, what inspired me is that Andy his life illustrates how you never know what life has in store for you. I mean, as an English twenty-something to becoming a Buddhist monk to becoming an impactful entrepreneur; this is not something you can plan.

Alright, I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.

Cheers! Ernest

Episode details

Andy Puddicombe is not your typical entrepreneur – in his early twenties, he gave away everything he owned to train as a Buddhist monk. But after ten years, he decided he wanted to bring the benefits of his meditation techniques to more people. While running a meditation clinic in London, Andy met Rich Pierson, who had burned out on his job at a high-powered London ad agency. Together, they founded Headspace in 2010. Nine years later, Headspace's guided meditation app has users in 190 countries and an annual revenue of over $100 million. PLUS in our postscript "How You Built That," how a quick fix to a broken pair of sunglasses inspired Jensen Brehm and Nikolai Paloni to create an armless set of shades: Ombraz Sunglasses.
