David Nichtern – Creativity, Spirituality & Making a Buck – Ep. 40 – Entrepreneurship, Technology & Spiritual Practice w/ Justin Evans

Tech wizard, entrepreneur, and practitioner Justin Evans joins David to talk about merging Buddhist wisdom with A.I. technology and business.

“The idea of a two-year practice is the depth of it—you get to go quite far into it. And so far the place in my life where I’ve had the great gift and opportunity to go far and go deep is in the entrepreneurial stuff.” – Justin Evans
