In today’s fast-paced world, parenting has become more complex than ever before. As parents, we constantly strive to provide the best for our children and guide them towards a successful and fulfilling life. However, there is a counterintuitive approach to parenting that challenges our conventional beliefs – work as a role model. In today’s episode, we are joined by Naveen Jain, who shares his unconventional approach to parenting and his insights on thinking big, entrepreneurship, and creating wealth while changing the world.

Naveen is a remarkable entrepreneur known for his confidence and innovative thinking. His boldness and unique perspective have led him to create successful companies like Moon Express and Viome, which challenge traditional norms in industries such as space exploration and healthcare. His entrepreneurial mindset is focused on keeping people healthy rather than profiting from illness.

He shares his unconventional truths and invaluable insights for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs and challenges the common notion that passion is essential for success. Instead, he emphasizes the importance of obsession – not for things or people, but for solving problems. It’s this relentless drive to make a difference that sets real entrepreneurs apart.

Naveen and his family have a unique way of looking at the world’s problems and launching ideas that create billions in value. They have built successful companies that have not only changed the world but also generated incredible shareholder wealth. He believes in thinking at a visionary level and encourages entrepreneurs to do the same. 

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or looking to scale your business, Naveen’s insights into understanding the world, launching ideas, and creating wealth are a game-changer. Join us as we dive into the world of parenting and entrepreneurship!

Memorable Quotes:

“Because when your mind starts to imagine it, it starts to believe it is real. Because that’s how we are taught. Because we only see things that are real. And now I’m seeing this thing. It must be real. So suddenly the world you created for them is real for them and they’re willing to invest in that world.” – Naveen Jain

“Passion is for losers. Passion is for hobbies. The real entrepreneurs have obsession, obsession not for things or people. Obsession to solve the problem.” – Naveen Jain

“Create things that improve people’s life without a focus on making money because when you start focusing on making money your mindset changes to short term.” – Naveen Jain
