Show Notes

What’s up everybody? Welcome to another episode of The Way of the Futurist podcast. Today’s guest is the amazingly talented, Marissa Brassfield. Marissa started her career as a writer and journalist, but is now well-known for being an exponential technology evangelist and the Operations Goddess for the Abundance Group. For the past 7 years she’s worked side-by-side with the popular entrepreneur and futurist, Peter Diamanis, and was the co-creator, along with Peter, of the world’s greatest technology conference, Abundance 360. I’ve attended the event twice and can confirm it’s greatness. Marissa is now sharing all of her knowledge and experience with her community as the founder of Ridiculously Efficient. In this episode, Marissa shares the tools she uses to stay current with exponential technologies...and even shares one of her secret sources that she’s never shared before. We also talk about the process she used to successfully train her team to think and act like futurists. And for the first time ever, on public record, Marissa shares the detailed story of how she met and began working with Peter Diamandis. It’s a story of boldness, curiosity, and persistence. Marissa is a natural leader and cares deeply about people and relationships. We finish the conversation talking about the work she’s doing now to help people around the world achieve their unique flavor of freedom. I hope you enjoy this interview with Marissa as much as I did. 

Now before we get started, I have to apologize for the sound quality. I was traveling during this episode so it’s not as crisp as I’d like, but I guarantee you won’t even notice once we get started. Marissa was just that good.
