I returned to Arizona on Sunday afternoon after a whirlwind experience in Orlando, Florida. Dave Asprey & team knocked it out of the park! I am wiped out and still processing my experiences over the last four days. Allow me to share some highlights.

I received the incredible VIP gift bag upon checking in. I am familiar with some products, while others are brand new to me.

I started each day with a trip to the Danger Coffee Bar, which served unlimited coffee (Bulletproof-style) until 3:00. Little did I know Dave Asprey would be serving me a cup.

Dave Asprey’s Danger Coffee is delicious, and I feel amazing after drinking it.

Why is it called Danger Coffee? Who knows what you might do after you drink it? You might become a dangerous person.

I’m unsure whether I transformed into a dangerous person, but I felt good and primed for the speakers each day. Let’s get right to one of my favorite talks.

Jim Kwik is a leading expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, and brain performance. Jim says there is no such thing as a good or bad memory; there’s only a trained or untrained memory. He believes we can all improve our memory recall and proved it with a simple exercise called the memory palace.

Memory is about attention and not retention. The more senses you can use to pay attention to what you want to remember, the better your recall. His example involves the top ten foods to support brain health.
