( 6:25 ): Michael asks, What was your childhood like? Where did you grow up?”

( 7:32 ): Michael asks, “What did the software company look like at 14?”

( 9:24 )Lauryn says, “You wrote a book and published a book I want to say when you were 11 years old. You missed that.”

( 16:50 ): Lauryn asks, “What do you think is more important to instill in your child and our child? Smarts and intelligence or being a social chameleon?”

( 18:19 )Lauryn says, “You’re at MIT, and you meet someone there, and I’ll fast forward and you can give us all the details, and you end up getting featured in a movie.”

( 39:13 ): Michael says, “I want you to go back on some of the exercises that helped you eradicate fear that MIT taught you. Imagine somebody- you’re a young person- and you have fear to start a business, or podcast, or a blog, or you’re scared to put yourself out there to create content. Whatever it may, what were the tangible exercises that it put you through in order to get rid of that fear so you actually execute?”

( 49:56 )Michael asks, “But what does it do to your ego per say when you have a big success and you think you’re on top of the world and you’re doing all these things and opening bars and thinking you’re the man, and then you do something and you fail like you did, do you start to question, ‘Oh wait, was I just lucky? Did I not really have success?’” What does it do to the mind?”

( 52:25 ): Lauryn says, “Let’s talk about now. You’re working on such a fucking cool project, something I want you to share with the audience. Let’s talk about how you started realizing there was white space to have this idea and what it is now.”

( 1:23:58 )Lauryn asks, “If someone is a blogger or an influencer and wants to join your platform, how do they do it? Where can they find you? Pimp yourself out.”
