Champion of Change



Editor in Chief, Entrepreneur magazine


Host of the podcasts Pessimists Archive,
Problem Solvers, and Hush Money

Guy who gets you excited for the future.

We are in a time of constant change, and many people's instinct will be to resist. We prefer comfort over change. But here’s what I know: The most successful people in the world don't see change as something to stop. They see it as an opportunity to embrace.


That’s why my mission is to help people make the most of change.

I do this in many ways. As editor in chief of Entrepreneur, I've made it the magazine's core message. It's the subject of my podcast Pessimists Archive, a show about why the pessimists of the past were wrong and how to be optimistic about the future. It's what I inspire people to do with my other podcasts, Problem Solvers and Hush Money, which are about being open about failure and difficult subjects. And it's the primary message of my high-energy keynote talks.

I was previously an editor at Fast Company, Men's Health, Maxim, and Boston. A novel I cowrote with his wife, Mr. Nice Guy, is currently being developed for television. I live in Brooklyn.
