David Spinks delivers a master class on how to build amazing, loyal, and collaborative communities.

Imagine that you're fresh out of college, touring with your rock band, and you meet Puff Daddy at backstage at your show. Sounds surreal, right? Well that what is what happened to D.A. Wallach. After graduating from Harvard, he toured the country with his rock band Chester French. And the likes of Puff Daddy showed up at his shows.
Years later, D.A. has become a bio tech investor. He's pivoted his career many times. Chester French was a rock band like the Beatles, with a sensbility and style of Outkast.
If you like Ryan Williams' podcast, please leave an honest review on iTunes!
As a freshman at Harvard in 2003, D.A. joined the band Chester French as its lead singer. Coincidentally, Mark Zuckerberg was also at Harvard that year. Lucky for D.A. he was one of the first 2,000 users of Facebook. D.A. and his band road the first wave of social media. D.A. explains that an early adopter, his band's use of Facebook, MySpace and Twitter were the central factors in the rock group's early success.

They were trying to figure out how to build audience on campus via the social network. Their curiousity lead them to book tours and meet fans though social media. He realized that in many ways, his fans were like him. And social media helped him to literally meet tens of thousands of friends.
While growing up in Wisconsin, D.A. recalls downloading every David Bowie album through Napster. Years later, as a musican, he watched the music industry get eviscerated. As his days of rock touring were slowing down, a small company named Spotify was preparing for its U.S. launch. That's when D.A. made his first pivot.
D.A. is now investing in biotech companies, as he's fascinated by humans relation to biology and is interested in driving an enhanced understanding of the connection. New powers and insights can be gained as the future of biology and technology gets defined. He is now looking for businesses that are taking cool scientific ideas from academia or the lab. He wants to turn concepts and technologies into businesses for entrepreneurs.

Noah Kagan (@NoahKagan) was employee #30 at Facebook and employee #4 at Mint.com, and the founder of Sumo.com and AppSumo. He's a superstar in the world of tech and entrepreneurship. He also hosts the podcast Noah Kagan Presents. He's done a lot in his life, and you'd think everything was rosy with his career. Based on his resume, you'd think that it's all been rainbows and unicorns for Noah. But you're wrong.
But like me, Noah has experienced bouts of depression in his life.
We're not just talking about having a bad day, or even a tough week. We are talking about consistently thinking about bad things for years.
We talked about our own techniques for dealing with depression. He's also got some great techniques to help improve your mental productivity.
