Today’s guest makes me feel terribly under accomplished. He is a modern day Renaissance man. His name is Kabir Sehgal. I was introduced to Kabir by a mutual friend who thought he’d be a perfect fit for the show as he was launching a new book about the history and biology of money. The book is called Coined: The Rich Life of Money and How Its History Has Shaped Us and it’s just earned New York Times bestselling status. In Coined, Kabir explores how and why money has come to play such a central role in everyday life and unveils the neuroscience behind our money behavior. As The New York Times says, “If you’ve been waiting for an economic version of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ this may be it.”
Oh, and by the way, Kabir is also a Grammy award winning musician.
Three takeaways from our interview:
— The secret to Kabir’s career success.
— What he learned from his very first entrepreneurial venture – in kindergarten.
— What it’s like to work on Wall Street these days. Up until recently Kabir worked in finance and investment banking.
