As we wrap up 2019, I’m counting down Imperfect Action’s top 10 most popular episodes. At #4 is Chip Conley, rebel entrepreneur and hospitality industry disruptor, who shared his thoughts on innovation, workplace culture, and the importance of being a modern elder.
Chip compresses hours of insight into a 30-minute conversation. He touches on: the difference between innovation and disruption, viewing the business as an art form, targeting customers through psychographics instead of demographics, and creating a more democratic business culture. Then things get really interesting when we shift the conversation to the idea of the modern elder, the irrelevancy gap, and reimagining life and realizing that aging can bring unexpected pleasures. He describes himself as young enough to take up surfing and old enough to know what’s important in life.
Please share with others who might be inspired by Chip’s message and ideas.

I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality. I like to support up and coming businesses so I gave it a try and was amazed. It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.
The true taste test? My teenage daughter even likes it.
There are a lot of supplement brands on the market and NutriFitt is my favorite.
