Giving and sharing, Best Buy, and getting feedback
Ostreicher reveals why he does things for others and gives of his time and knowledge as well as financially at times, the importance of sharing wisdom, why he stresses that he’s accomplished so much by age 33, his view on religion, whether and how he decompresses, why Best Buy is his “drug” of choice, the iPod V1, why he chose travel as his business focus, why he is taking notes every step of the way, the power of Google Survey, and the revenue prospect and rationale of Regal Engravers.
In-store retail and luxury shopping, evaluating business risk, and managing activity
The future of in-store retail and its use case, connecting luxury shopping to experiences, the rise of travel experiences and specifically local authentic experiences, the importance of due diligence to evaluate risk and potential in a business undertaking, dedication as a key to success, how Ostreicher manages a high volume of email activity, his love of the Gmail app, and tools like Clara virtual assistant (Clara Labs), WunderList, Slack.
Being Hasidic, staying grounded, and the beanie situation
Personal questions in a segment of Off the Beaten Path cover involvement in the Hasidic community, Toastmasters and public speaking, how both grandfathers were at Auschwitz, being judged in spite of accomplishments, fighting the judgment of others, and being less relatable vs. giving more. Having and being a role model, “The Faraway Tree” by Enid Blyton, staying grounded with rituals despite frequent travel, coming back to familiar senses, experiences and people, and traveling in style. Overcoming an addiction, the beanie situation, a proper British mother, and great accents.
