Perry Marshall, the author of Evolution 2.0 has recently been featured on Forbes.com in a discussion about his pivot from being a world-renowned marketer and serial entrepreneur to being an influential figure in the evolutionary science and communication technology space.
Here’s An Excerpt:
“How To Pivot Your Expertise To Starting A New Business”
– By Ryan Robinson
“Have you ever wondered how serial entrepreneurs do so much?
There’s something different about people who are able to start a business, make it successful, then pivot into something entirely new and be just as successful all over again. It’s a remarkable skill set—and in some ways, it indicates that your success as an entrepreneur isn’t just tied to how much you know about what you sell. It’s about understanding what goes into success in the first place.
If you have expertise in your field, chances are you’ve thought about pivoting. Maybe you’ve seen an opportunity that others aren’t investing in, or you came upon a question that made you reconsider your path. Whatever the impetus, if you’ve thought about it and avoided it, you shouldn’t.
You can use your expertise to build a successful business elsewhere.
Don’t believe me? Ask Perry Marshall, a guest I recently had the opportunity to interview. Marshall’s already known as a world-class marketer and serial entrepreneur. He’s been teaching people how to be more effective communicators for years through books, videos, online courses and email campaigns.
But recently he’s pivoted to a new venture. His Evolution 2.0 converges evolutionary science with communication technology. We got to speaking about his new venture and drew out some key lessons on what it takes to effectively pivot from one business to another.”[To Continue Reading, Please See The Original Article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/ryanrobinson/2019/09/05/pivot-expertise-start-new-business/#dda4f9540be7]

“But the prize underscores a paradigm shift underway in academia: ‘Evolutionary biology is emerging from a period of great resistance to new ideas.'”

Sy Garte is author of The Works of His Hands: A Scientist’s Journey from Atheism to Faith.
He is a PhD biologist who has published over 200 papers and worked as a grant reviewer for the NIH. Here he tells his story of transforming from militant atheism to faith and why science itself rejects materialism.

Where Did Life And The Genetic Code Come From? Can The Answer Build Superior AI? The #1 Mystery In Science Now Has A $10 Million Prize. Learn More About It, Here – https://www.herox.com/evolution2.0
At the Royal Society in Great Britain 31 May 2019, Perry Marshall and investor Kevin Ham announced the $10 Million Evolution 2.0 Prize.
The meeting was hosted by Oxford Professor Denis Noble FRS CBE; and Oxford Professor Paul Flather, President of the Forum for Philosophy at the London School of Economics.
Denis organized the revolutionary “New Trends in Evolutionary Biology” conference, also at the Royal Society, in 2016.
Where did life come from? Where did the genetic code come from? The Evolution 2.0 Prize incentivizes the first person who can discover how code can emerge from chemistry. Such a discovery will bridge the gap between physics and biology.
Origin of Information (“Abiogenesis”) is the crucial question in the Origin Of Life. It’s also central to evolutionary change. It is the most elemental scientific problem that can be precisely defined. A solution may be as revolutionary as Einstein’s theory of relativity or the development of the transistor.

Denis Noble, one of the judges for the Evolution 2.0 Prize, discusses in this interview why we can’t just put lipstick on a pig – why the public needs to be aware that evolutionary theory has undergone a revolution, and how this affects not only religious and philosophical discussions but policies and actions in medicine economics and politics.

We doubled the Evolution 2.0 Prize from $5 Million to $10 Million.
I announced this at the Royal Society in Great Britain on Friday, May 31, 2019.

Wealthy investors are offering a $10m prize to the first scientific team that can create a genetic code from simple chemicals — reproducing the unknown process that led billions of years ago to DNA as the vehicle for transmitting information in life on Earth.
The Evolution 2.0 prize is an initiative by Perry Marshall, an online marketing entrepreneur based in Chicago. It will be judged by prominent scientists, including George Church, genetics professor at Harvard university, and Denis Noble, the Oxford university biologist who was the first to model the human heart on a computer.
“The biggest problems in science today are: how life got going in the first place and what is the origin of the genetic code,” said Professor Noble. “We want to know whether the way information is encoded in DNA is the result of chance or whether there are good chemical reasons why the code should be the way it is.” Read more »
