Chip Conley is considered a rebel hospitality entrepreneur. He’s a NY Times bestselling author, and disrupted his favorite industry hospitality twice. At 26 he founded Joie de Vivre transforming an inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America, sold it and joined Airbnb helping transform the promising start-up into the world’s leading hospitality brand. Today Chip is AirBnB’s Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership and in this show we discuss wisdom, leadership and creating disruption.   When someone asks Chip what he does, how does he like to reply? How has Chip been able to enjoy longevity in his career? Chip is a leading authority at the intersection of psychology and business, what’s right at the heart of that? What was the moment Chip decided to pull the trigger and sell his company? Chip's company Joie De Vivre was the name and the mission. Was that intentional? Was his own mission shared with the company mission?  Living intentionally - reinvention but reintention, what’s Chip’s view?  Attachment to an identity can be dangerous, is there a psychological process people we can follow? How did Cancer reframe how Chip sees what’s important? Questions hold more power than answers, why is it we have to promote curiosity? Airbnb founder Brian Chesky. What is the greatest business skill Brian  has that Chip truely admires? “Musicians don’t retire, they quit when there is no more music left inside them” what’s Chip’s soundtrack? A profound piece of advise - We listen to the story when we should be should be listening for the story. Why more and more people fear being invisible, feel irrelevant? What has Chip removed from his world in the last 100 days that has had a profound effect on his life?
