On this episode, we welcome guest Chris Hewish, President of Xsolla. We start by discussing Chris’s take on the effects of coronavirus, his new role at Xsolla, and how he got started in the game industry, offering insight into what he wishes he had known at the beginning. He then shares valuable advice for people entering the industry and for people trying to advance their careers in Design or Production – hint: bootstrapping your way in and learning emotional intelligence can help.

Chris divulges a few of his favorite games he’s worked on and what he’s excited about, including the evolution of cross-platform play and games becoming their own social platforms. We discuss some potential threats to the game industry and share candid thoughts on AR/VR/MR technology. Some funny stories are shared, a few including odd pets, and Chris talks about his current game of choice keeping him up. The episode wraps up with an overview of Xsolla’s platform, along with some more powerful advice for people currently working in the game industry.

“I wish I had known that sometimes there’s more power, not power in a control sense, but there’s more power in being able to move things forward by listening than there is by telling.”                                       - Chris Hewish

Chris Hewish is a multifaceted leader who's worked in both the developer and publisher sides of the business; having been directly involved in designing or producing over 50 Console, PC, Mobile, and VR games. His unique skill-set combines the design and production skills of a developer, with the business and strategic acumen of a publisher; all supported by a servant leader mentality. He’s managed individual game teams, operated multi-game studios, and run worldwide interactive business units at companies like Activision, DreamWorks Animation, Survios, and Skydance Interactive.

Our culture is obsessed with success. We are all obsessed with our success and perhaps even more obsessed with giving another person. They are all the tools they need to succeed. We all do our best, but many times, there is confusion about what real success is. There is a vague understanding that success means that our children will one day have a good education, a good job, a right family, and good citizens.

Nevertheless, that is a concise vision. It is not much success for our children to grow up to have worldly success for fifty years and then spend eternity in hell. That is a temporary success, but an eternal failure.

In God’s eyes, success means discovering His will for your life and using that purpose for God’s glory, not for your glory. When we help our children to be truly successful, we must see the big picture. If a child grows up understanding that, then he has a much better chance of experiencing real and lasting success because he will be successful in God’s eyes.

The initial thing one should know is that every day, in all decisions something motivates you, whether it is to eat, sleep, think, swim, write, cry, laugh or speak, but this motivation is not always directed towards success because not always we are motivated to start the search for our dreams, many times at work we want to sleep, and that does not help, so since management is part of you, it is only time to give you the right address, and for that, you must have several things to note:

1. Do not do things for commitment; the activities you carry out must be instructed to achieve the life of your dreams.

2. Put the goals that lead you to success in your mind. They must be clear to experience the emotion of success every day as if you had already achieved it.

3. There is a difference between progress and results; that is why your mind should be focused on the path and not so much on the destination.

4. Positivity will be the impulse that your mind needs to achieve your goals. You must be positive and not take actions motivated by negativity due to the consequence they will have.

5. Seek inspiration as it goes hand in hand with motivational speech and could generate you a plus. You can find support with the people around you or review someone else’s experiences.

Steve Jobs, Tim Cook, and Honoring the Vocations of our Essential Workers

Read more

Brendan Romigh and Dr. Bob Robinson compare and contrast the commencement speeches of Apple’s Steve Jobs (Stanford 2005) with Tim Cook (Ohio State 2020).

Jobs told the graduating students of Stanford “You’ve got to find what you love…Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”

Cook, in light of the Coronavirus, focused on what have been called “essential workers,” people whose vocations are not necessarily “satisfying” or work that is “loved,” but work that needs to be honored nonetheless, people working in fields in order to feed their families and ours, those who stock shelves, drive city buses, clean in hospitals.

How can we honor the vocations of our essential workers? How can people graduating from Stanford, Ohio State, or any other college use their agency and influence to make the work of those without as much agency better?

6: “Not the next Steve Jobs; the first you.” Starting a Startup, Gaming & Risk Taking with Riley Auten

Read more

Growing up in Silicon Valley, Riley chose to study software engineering, leaning into his natural interests and experiences to guide his path forward. After graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in computer science, Riley Austen started his career as a Software Engineer for Amazon. Not long after, Riley ended up pivoting out of big tech to take the leap into entrepreneurship - joining the startup accelerator Techstars with a team of friends to build and scale their startup: Shotcall. Shotcall is a platform designed to connect content creators with their fans through video games. I chat with Riley about the whole story: what he’s learned, what he’s building, and advice he’d share looking back.

I met Riley back at Georgia Tech, through the connection of my friend and mentor, Bryan Wish. Riley and I were both studying computing with a vested interest in young entrepreneurship and finding our community on campus. Together, we started Georgia Tech’s first chapter of the Kairos Society: a fellowship and fund for top students aiming to solve the world's greatest challenges. Even after Riley graduated and I leaned more into my passion for TEDx events, we stayed in touch and I’m so glad we did, because getting to know Riley and the Shotcall team led us to this conversation today.

This episode is for you if you’ve ever wondered: 

- What’s it like to grow up in Silicon Valley, study software engineering and subsequently join a tech giant like Amazon straight out of undergrad? 

- What’s the difference between starting a product and starting a business

- Do you have to be the world’s most creative problem solver in order to start or join a startup? 

- Why is there so much money in the gaming industry, what the opportunities look like to get in on that action, and what Shotcall is doing to bridge the gap between fans and stars? 

- The good, the bad, and the ugly of starting any new venture. 

- What a startup accelerator is and provides, and whether working through the same program as companies like Classpass and SalesLoft changes how you think your team and your business. 

- Riley’s advice if you’re interested in starting a startup from the ground up. 

And more.

It’s fast, it’s to the point, and we get straight into the why behind tech entrepreneurship - something I literally get HYPE to talk about. Ready?

Steve Jobs was CEO and co-founder of Apple Inc. He was a pioneer of personal computers, entrepreneur, technologist, leader, and designer. He led significant innovations in various areas: music, technology, film, hardware. Steve had a notable impact in changing how we use technology.

This excerpt originally appeared in Steve Jobs: Secrets of Life, a film produced by the Silicon Valley Historical Association. You can find information about the film at


ES: This is 5 Minute Mentor, a podcast where you’ll get advice from prominent authors, researchers, engineers, artists, and more, in 5 minutes or less.

ES: Today’s mentor is Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs was CEO and co-founder of Apple Inc. He was a pioneer of personal computers, entrepreneur, technologist, leader, and designer. He led significant innovations in various areas like: music, technology, film, hardware. Steve had a notable impact in changing how we use technology.

ES: This is the last episode of Season 1 of the 5 Minute Mentor podcast. This episode means a lot to me because it’s a piece of advice from Steve Jobs that I occasionally listen to. I heard it recently, and I just really wanted to share it with all of you. I hope you like it as much as I do.

ES: This is Steve’s advice:

SJ: So, the thing I would say is: When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash in the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. But life, that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact — and that is everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use. And the minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know, if you push in something will pop out the other side — you can change it, you can mold it. That’s maybe the most important thing — is to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just going to live in it — versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it. I think that’s very important. And however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better because it’s kind of messed up in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.
