Hannes Bend is a mindfulness teacher, artist, and technologist. He is the founder of Breathing.ai, a software that personalizes screen experiences in order to improve breathing patterns. He has also taught mindfulness and Wim Hof style breathing techniques to everyone from prison inmates to elementary school children.
Gary Vaynerchuk is a "digital guru", a man I've been following for the past 7 years. When I saw him post a barter online offering to exchange his time for a purchase from his new wine company I jumped on the opportunity- having a goal to meet him in 2018 that was not met.
There is something beautiful about the fact that this conversation took place during a difficult time in my life where I am actively trying to use his advice more than ever. Patience, compassion, empathy, non-judgement. These ideals are so basic and yet so easily forgotten as life throws the unexpected at you, especially when you are dealing with your own inner demons.
I knew I would be meeting Gary for months and had lists of questions planned out about business and life. However, I threw most of them to the wind and just be straight up vulnerable and honest to what I was experiencing; in the hopes that someone else listens and gets value from it.
