Episode 014 – Richard Jaffe and Charly Jaffe

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #014 with father and daughter team Richard and Charly Jaffe – Maintaining the Right Attitude & Emotional Stability Under Crisis.

Richard Jaffe was the co-founder of Nutri-Foods International (frozen novelties) and SafeSkin Corp (medical devices), both of which he took public on NASDAQ and sold to Fortune 100 companies. Both companies developed #1 selling products in their categories nationwide. He currently writes, speaks and mentors young entrepreneurs on starting and scaling new ventures.

Charly Jaffe, on the other hand, is a writer, storyteller and captivating advocate for mental and emotional health. With a background spanning industries and continents, Charly produced stories for BBC News, ran an Australian yoga school and was an award-winning Google strategist. She is currently a crisis counselor and graduate student at Columbia University’s Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology.

 

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

The HERO Challenge

Today on the show Richard challenged his wife, Ann Jaffe, to be a guest on The HERO Show! In Richard Jaffe’s own words, “If you want to interview an angel on earth; Okay, if you want to know what an angel on earth looks like, I would talk to her.”

Also, Charly Challenged her good friend, Kristina Saffran, co-founder of Project HEAL. Charly thinks that Kristina would be a fantastic interview because Kristina’s company focuses on eating disorders; specifically on providing access and changing the way that our entire health system approaches it.
