AirBnB’s Joe Gebbia: The Intersection of Art & Business

Joe Gebbia is best known as the co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Airbnb, a company you’ve probably heard about once or twice – valued at $31 billion at the moment (yep – that’s billion with a B). But this isn’t his first rodeo – he’s been a passionate advocate of design and an entrepreneur since his childhood, channeling that passion into everything from his college side hustle of selling his specially seat cushions for the uncomfortable stools in his art classes to various earlier online businesses and his current project, a furniture company called Neighborhood. It wasn’t easy putting this episode together – as you can imagine Joe is a busy guy – but I am so, so glad we did because this one is FIRE – his career is basically one big proof point of all the things we talk about on this show.

If you haven’t seen the show please, please do yourself a favor and check it out – season 4 recently premiered on HBO.

We touch on a bunch of stuff here that I wasn’t expecting to get into – if you’re thinking this is gonna be a bunch of inside baseball about Silicon Valley (the place or the TV show), it’s not that. What’s super interesting to me here is that Amanda deals with so many of the same things that you hear from the other people on this show: imposter syndrome, “post-success hangover,” being a hyphen and all the challenges that come with that, and a bunch of other themes you’ll recognize from other guests if you’re a long time listener. I love hearing how each guest grapples with these things, and I also love sharing the […]
