SXSW 2014


in Stories, Travel

I just returned back from SXSW, after 5 days staying with Steve Kamb and Staci Ardison of Nerd Fitness. Read Staci’s awesome story of Staci: Your Powerlifting Super Hero.

I’m back in Boston now, but wanted to show you a quick photo album of what I was up to.

I flew in to SXSW on Friday to give a panel on Life Automation for Entrepreneurs — I spoke with Veronica Belmont, Dave Asprey, and Stephanie Burns on a panel about how we automate our life to succeed.

This is cool: Dave Asprey (of BulletProof Exec and BulletProof Coffee, not to mention ex-CTO of the Basis wristband) invested in my company Pavlok.

Below, see a screenshot of our panel. I’ll try to get a summary up soon.

I went to the Nerdfitness Meetup with Stacy and Steve — Steve is also an advisor to Pavlok, and is absolutely awesome.

Below, you’ll see Liam from and Minesh joining me in a pedicab ride on the streets of Austin.

Liam and his friend Chris (who runs EveryLastApartment) organized a pub crawl — with flaming shots. WHOOSH.

We headed out to Pete’s, a dueling piano bar.2014-03-10 23.43.23

Oh hey! Neville of Nevblog, breaking it down for the crowd.


A great group of people showed up to play lasertag — I wasn’t the best, but I wasn’t the worst. I  was #42 — Pavlok. Someone decided to be 48-Ramit, and made me very curious. Tynan absolutely destroyed me in game 2. Good to see Charlie Hoehn and Benny Lewis and lots of other guys along the way.

Off for an early morning flight with a layover! I don’t have status anymore, and I was very angry.

But it was nice to return back to this email 🙂
