#185 - Alexei Mirkin - Founder & CEO at alphaseeker.app
#185 - Alexei Mirkin - Founder & CEO at alphaseeker.app Spending his teenage years in Chicago and NYC, he often passed by the CME and the NYSE. Back then he had no idea what quantitative finance is, but being good with numbers always came natural. Alexei is a serial entrepreneur. Attended Hunter College in NYC studying economics for two years. Went on to start a couple of startups in the early 2000s. Continued on to 10 years of algorithmic trading on various markets. Quantitative finance quickly became his obsession. In his early days of algorithmic trading, he was chasing the holy grail, just like all beginners. But over the years he has learned what a good strategy is when it comes to investing. It was ten long years of trial and error and continuous education, learning from the greats like Wyckoff and Markowitz. Creating models, simulations, testing algorithms - then wiping the board clean and starting over from a clean slate. After receiving an Artificial Intelligence with Python nano degree from Udacity, he decided to augment his purely mathematical approach and let ML do some of the heavy lifting. Alexei decided to combine the classical theory with ML. The results came out better than he could have dreamed then he decided to go ahead with another startup.

#152 - Liz Carlile - Proven Thought Leader in the Field of Mental Health and Holistic Wellness Liz’s interest in the importance of non-negotiable self-care for mothers is informed by personal experience: She is a mother of two boys, ages 4 and 7, and through her own difficulty managing new motherhood, found a way to not only survive but thrive. Her cathartic processing of the unexplainable turmoil and despair following the birth of her first child prompted her to start a blog, which was highly received and eventually turned into a series of published articles and the beginning of her online presence as Motherhood Unstressed. In 2017 she enrolled and graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (“IIN”), and became a certified Health Coach. It was while she was at IIN that she decided to start her podcast on health and wellness, which now routinely breaks the Top 50 charts on Apple Podcasts. Every week she releases two episodes on a myriad of topics that empower and uplift women to live their best lives. Her Monday episode consists of a long-form interview with an expert in holistic health. Past guests have included best selling authors Dr. Steven Gundry, Mark Sisson, and Filmmaker Jon Whelan. Her Wednesday episodes consist of guided meditations or shorter solo episodes that give her a chance to connect more deeply with her engaged audience all over the world and leave them with practical takeaways they can use to optimize their lives. Liz is also a speaker who travels the country teaching resilience-building and mental fitness. In 2019 she was invited to share her story of motherhood and the importance of non-negotiable self-care on the TEDx stage in Colorado Springs. Since then she has been a frequent speaker to groups of men and women on this topic. She also speaks on entrepreneurship and how others can pursue lives more in alignment with their soul’s true purpose. Liz has graced the cover of Best Self magazine, and her articles on a variety of topics have been published in countless magazines. She has also presented as an invited speaker at several women’s non-profit and corporate gatherings.

Captain Rob Kessler is the Inventor of Million Dollar Collar (MillionDollarCollar.com) and the Co-Founder of goTIELESS. An innovative product that fixes the collapsing of the front of a casually worn dress shirt. His product has been used to improve the look of every major brand of shirt from H&M, to Calvin Klein, to UNTUCKit and everything in-between. It's easy to see why when you come across any of his before and after photo's. It's a wonder that every brand doesn't just have these installed at production. Since the big brands have been so slow to adapt his technology at scale, he and his partners decided to start their own dress-shirt brand (goTIELESS.com) to show the benefits, and that gamble has really paid off. Their first run sold out in 72 hours. Their second run is more than 60% sold through and they are scrambling to get more shirts made, even amid the Coronavirus pandemic. They are looking to produce 5 more colours as soon as everything opens back up to keep up with demand.

Electra Japonas is the founder and CEO of The Law Boutique⚡, a challenger law firm that is bringing law into the 21st century.    Electra started The Law Boutique in 2017 having spent over ten years in various large organisations in commercial legal and data protection roles, including the European Space Agency, Disney, BAT and EY.   She realised there was a gap in the market for a legal company that took a more holistic approach to legal support, beyond just the law. The penny dropped when in her last role, she spent four months negotiating a multi-million pound IT agreement with the support of a traditional law firm, only to come out of the negotiation and have to re-draft the whole agreement when the business stakeholders were finding it challenging to interpret how the agreement applied to them. She spent another few months translating the agreement into plain English, introducing visual guides to explain how the various teams need to operate to reach the right outcomes and building tech tools to streamline the contract management process.    Electra decided that there must be a better way to deliver legal support to businesses and decided to start a business to do just that.

#85 - Pete White - Making mental health a priority within your business
After a traumatic tour in Afghanistan in 2011, Pete found himself experiencing troubling thoughts and feelings but didn't think much of it. Before long his mental health was spiralling out of control and his life would never be the same again. In 2016 was diagnosed with severe depression and PTSD and at his lowest was considered a danger to himself and others. That was when he had a decision to make, end it all now or find a way to fight on.  He chose to fight and after a lot of specialist therapy, medication and personal development, he came out the other side a different man, but a better man. Pete learnt a lot on his journey, about himself, the wider world, mental health issues and how scary and lonely the world can be for those who are suffering.  Now a published author, public speaker and running his own mental health training & consultancy business, Pete considers himself incredibly lucky to be able to use his experience to help others support themselves and others and to teach people what he considers his greatest lesson: It's when things seem worst that you must never quit, you are stronger than you think.

They are an online business management agency that specializes in marketing, social media management, event planning, and creative design. Their goal is to help businesses grow by increasing brand awareness, customers, and revenue. Stefanie and Chelsea have both overcome challenges that have brought them to where they are now. Chelsea has had many concussions that impacted her everyday life. Doctors and guidance counselor recommended her not to go to University or do a very reduced workload until she was fully recovered. Despite being told this, she continued to take on a full course load and graduated with the rest of her class. In 2016, Stefanie’s son Scott passed away and was told by fertility specialists that she would not be able to have kids naturally, but proved everyone wrong when she delivered a healthy baby girl. Despite these struggles that they both had, they both worked hard to achieve their dreams. Stefanie and Chelsea love encouraging others to do what makes them happy and to never give up on their goals. They built their business around helping other people succeed, which is how Easy Virtual Assistant was created. In the first week, they got their first client and within 2 months they were able to grow their business to the point where they were able to quit their full-time corporate jobs. Since this, they have been enjoying connecting with so many amazing people and working with both established businesses and businesses that are just in the beginning stages!!
