FP004: How to Find Investors & Purpose with Kamal Ravikant
“My company fell apart. My relationships fell apart. My health fell apart,” Kamal Ravikant says. It was one of the darkest times in his life. “I was just locked in my bedroom, miserable out of my mind.”
As a tech entrepreneur, Ravikant had his share of success. He also failed. In fact, the failure of his last company struck him down. But he got up. His embrace of one simple concept — loving himself — ended up saving him emotionally and then financially, as his writing on the subject allowed him to bounce back and become a venture capital investor. He’s eager to share his experience through two books he wrote about his own epiphanies: Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It and Live Your Truth.
In this interview we go through with Kamal:
How to find an investor.
How to find purpose in life and your startup.
Why persistence does not always pay off.
His best selling books (Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on it, and Live Your Truth).

“If you come from a place where you’re just giving, and you are worthy, and the world responds, that’s amazing. That is success,” he says, “because if you still have the self-worth issues, no matter how much you make, it’ll never be enough.” If you define your own goals, allowing success to stem from inside, then outside troubles can never shackle you.
