Oren Frank is the CEO and Co-Founder of the company Talkspace. Talkspace is currently the leading online and mobile company that provides therapy to many different patients throughout the world. Talkspace has been able to help over a million patients with therapy and many of these patients did not have access to this type of help before the company existed. Frank founded the company with his wife Roni in 2012 not long after they had discovered the benefits of couples therapy to save their own marriage. The company was created to allow everyone to have access to mental health care. Oren Frank previously worked mainly in the fields of advertising and marketing before starting Talkspace.
Frank’s typical day begins with at least seven hours of sleep. He believes healthy sleeping habits can have a positive impact on being productive. He enjoys reading from multiple sources daily to keep his mind sharp. In addition, he also walks a lot, does a lot of listening, and talks a lot with other people each day.
Frank explains that while it is easy to formulate an idea, it is much harder when it comes to implementing it. It is important to look more deeply at the ideas in order to encourage the formation of new ideas. He explains that focus and discipline are things needed in order to execute ideas in the real world and that is why many companies end up failing.
Frank is excited by the progress being made to become a society led by women. He believes there are many areas which men have failed horribly so the obvious option is to let women take the lead in society. He definitely believes they are the more advanced members of the human race.
Frank believes it is important to have moderation when working a job. He believes having time to yourself to enjoy things such as vacations is very important. He also states that he believes it is important to take some time every day to stop what you are doing at your job and try to focus your mind on what’s important. Oren Frank believes that staying focused is the most important thing when it comes to growing a business. He also admits mistakes will happen and it is important to make and learn from them as early as possible when starting a business.
Frank believes social media can be destructive to the people of the world. He states that they can be used as platforms for hate as well as surveillance machines. He believes that they need to be regulated.
Some great business advice Frank gives is to use algorithms to predict and expose corruption, as the learning models are greatly improving. He also advises turning off all notifications on your phone while working. Another thing which he suggests is reading “Thinking Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman, who is the only psychologist to win the Nobel Prize for Economics.
