Reflections – Hardly a Waste of Time (EP.15)


A few months ago, an idea came to me to share some conversations with great capital allocators that I’ve been fortunate to know from my time in the business.

I lined up my first three guests, and didn’t know what would happen from there. Taking this journey without goals or expectations was new for me and has been a ton of fun.

My first unexpected surprise came from the answers to one of my closing questions. That question is  what is your favorite thing to do that’s a complete waste of time. My own time consuming vice is pretty harmless, but I was curious what others would reveal in answer to the same question.

As you’ll hear, some of my guests followed my lead, but most quickly came to an important life lesson.
