In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest follows his curiosity wherever it leads.

Kamal Ravikant served as an infantry soldier in the US Army, hiked the Camino de Santiago in Spain, climbed the Himalayas and meditated with monks there, and help found several companies. He’s made a career as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, investor, and author. Currently, he’s Managing Partner at Evolve VC, an early stage venture capital fund.

So what does all this have to do with self-love? Kamal explains how he developed self-love as a foundation for his life and work.

Kamal originally published his non-fiction book Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It in 2012 after a devastating year when he was sick to the point of bed rest, his company failed, he went through a relationship break-up and a close friend died.

In the midst of all this strife, he had an “a-ha” moment and made a vow to himself. He literally transformed his life. He gave a talk at the end of 2011 speaking his truth. A few months later, he wrote some things down to help a friend. Then he sent the writings to another friend where instead of a blog post, the writings became a book that struck a nerve and went viral. Kamal took years of responses to heart and revised the content to go even deeper, re-releasing the book in January 2020.

“I'm a big believer in sharing the truth and I don't mean like here's my dirty laundry truth, but the emotional truth, the fundamental truth or your truth about what makes you better,” Kamal says. “What I've been sharing about is what makes you better in the inside.”

You’ll find this show full of wisdom about self-love, mindset, entrepreneurship and tech investing. It’s all connected.
