After Princeton, Harvard Business School, and years of financial investing, I was disappointed to find myself, and many smart, high achieving peers, still struggle with mental health, career fulfillment, and relationship satisfaction. We wanted to change but were frustrated with most wellness tools that seemed “fluffy” for our type-A personalities. I wanted something well-researched, efficient, and practical.
At the time, my job was to scan the world of information to find nuggets of wisdom that could give us an edge on our investments. But I realized that I didn’t have an ounce of that analysis and reflection for my personal life: arguably, my one best investment.
Yet, from my research abilities, I knew there were decades of psychology studies out there that never get to the general public. Most people never have time to read thousands of dense academic articles. I thought: maybe I have a unique ability to find, dissect, and distill those studies in the same way I did for stocks.
So, I quit my high-paying job to do just that. I decided that if the wellness product of my dreams didn’t exist, I would have to build it. I would research and write the comprehensive program that I wish I’d been given over years of professional training. Today, LIFE Intelligence encompasses hundreds of topics about your personal and professional development. All cited in the app for those most scrutinizing. Putting the rigor of stock research into your daily decisions, goals, and conflicts.
Take care of your own mental health! Driven professionals also tend to have a psychological profile that makes them more prone to social-emotional differences that can underlie depression.
This is only amplified when in the tough world of startups. I feel lucky that I get to use my own product. Even having researched and written the program, I continue to use LIFE every day. If I’m frustrated with a teammate, feeling helpless about a lost sale, or indecisive about the next steps, I open the app and use its coping, communication, and problem-solving exercises to gain new insights each time.
