The conversation also touches on the Medici Effect, which discusses how innovation comes from diverse industries, cultures, and disciplines when they all intersect, bringing ideas from one field into another. This has been applied to his family's success strategy and how it translates to parenting, focusing on fostering individual interests and not rushing children through potentially character-building experiences.We explore energy management, the influence of our childhood experiences, and the importance of clear communication with partners.
