First, DJ and Nick had a bit of fun with the fact that Andrew is NOT the Andrew Davis that directed The Fugitive
and Under Siege
(for the record, that Andrew Davis is also welcome on the podcast any time). As a best-selling author and speaker, this Andrew Davis
spends a lot of his time traveling. When doing so, he takes the advice he got from Robert Rose and focuses on “taking your time and being comfortable.” He’s able to get a lot done both in hotel rooms and on planes. Though on planes Davis prefers to sketch using Penultimate for brainstorming.
When Andrew sold Tippingpoint, he found himself missing the office life where you have space and can engage with co-workers. That’s why he enjoys frequenting coworking spaces. As many have noted, these up-and-coming work spaces provide many advantages including an attractive price point that often amounts to less than the rent on a modest office. He also told us about his “Framework Days,” which he reserves for plotting out big ideas.
