Peter Diamandis, Founder & Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation
The Sky’s the Limit
Space enthusiast, doctor, and serial entrepreneur Peter Diamandis on abundance, exponential technologies, and why the world is better than you think.
Ever since he was a child, Peter Diamandis has been looking up, literally and figuratively.
Captivated by the lunar landing in 1969, he’s spent much of his life pushing the boundaries of space exploration through his various companies. And as a proponent of the concepts of exponential technologies and abundance, he has a refreshingly optimistic outlook on the future.
“I believe that we’re heading towards a world where we can uplift every man, woman, and child on this planet,” he says.
And as the founder of more than 20 companies in the fields of longevity, space, venture capital, and education—perhaps most famously the XPRIZE—Diamandis is doing his best to advance the world he envisions.
“I’ve always followed my passion,” he says. “And at the end of the day, that’s really the world that I feel extraordinarily lucky to live in, one where I am doing what I want to do.”
Exploring Medicine and Space
Born in New York to Greek immigrant parents who both worked in medicine, Diamandis felt obligated to become a doctor just like his father. But as a child of the 1960s who was fascinated with the Apollo program, he also felt compelled to explore space. So, he did both.
After getting accepted into Harvard Medical School, Diamandis co-founded the International Space University, which today has graduated more than 4,600 students from over 105 countries, and started International Microspace, a rocket company that was later acquired by CTA Incorporated.
Even after he obtained his medical degree, instead of practicing medicine, Diamandis continued building businesses, many in the area of space. He founded XPRIZE, a global contest whose winners include a team that developed the first non-governmental manned spacecraft; and Zero-G, which has helped people like Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, and Martha Stewart experience weightlessness in a modified Boeing 727 that performs aerobatic maneuvers at 32,000 feet (if you fancy a ride, the Zero-G Experience starts at $5,400 per person).
While Diamandis has worked hard to get here, he’s having a lot of fun too. “I’ve always been a 9-year-old kid pursuing my dreams,” he says.
Turning Science Fiction Into Fact
Looking at Diamandis’ long list of companies is a bit like reading synopses of science fiction novels. Space Adventures sends private citizens to the International Space Station to live and work alongside astronauts. Human Longevity seeks to extend the human lifespan through genomic and phenotypic data. And XPRIZE hosts multimillion-dollar global competitions to solve humanity’s most challenging problems.
There are some truly out-of-this-world inventions that have emerged from XPRIZE competitions that are worth noting here. To make space travel possible for private citizens, Mojave Aerospace Ventures designed a privately financed manned spaceship with technology that was licensed by Richard Branson for Virgin Galactic. To provide clean water to the underprivileged, the Skysource/Skywater Alliance invented an energy-efficient device that gleans water from thin air. To make healthcare more accessible, Team DMI created a device that can run hundreds of lab tests on one drop of blood, alerting the user within minutes if they have a cold, the flu, or even Ebola.
Diamandis says that XPRIZE helps address just one of his many passions: “How do I empower entrepreneurs to really go big and change the world?”
On Emerging Technologies and Abundance
Watch the evening news or read the newspaper, and the world seems pretty bleak. But Diamandis believes we have good reason to be hopeful. One of his most popular contributions is his concept of abundance, which he’s given a TED talk and written a book about. It’s the idea that technology is transforming scarce resources into abundant ones, quickly closing the gap between the haves and the have-nots.
Google, for example, has given the general public access to a storehouse of knowledge that history’s greatest philosophers, mathematicians, and scientists could never have imagined.
Further, exponential technologies—such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and virtual reality—have made it easier than ever to produce solutions at scale, solutions that, previously, only governments and massive corporations were capable of producing.
“Energy is a perfect example,” Diamandis says. Humans went from killing whales to get oil for lamps, to mining mountains for coal, to drilling the ocean floor for oil. Meanwhile, the sun bathes the earth in more energy than we could use in a year. An exponential entrepreneur, therefore, would find a way to use technology to efficiently harness the sun’s energy and distribute it to the masses.
Through the lens of abundance, Diamandis sees an opportunity for entrepreneurs to change the world, so much so that he created an exclusive community, Abundance Digital, that aims to do just that. He hosts monthly webinars and provides courses to inspire its roughly 3,000 members to think bigger, teaching them that “the world’s biggest problems are the world’s biggest business opportunities.”
Because of exponential technologies, Diamandis envisions a future where AI makes education and healthcare effectively free and available to all, where self-driving electric cars make using a car service cheaper than owning a vehicle—a future where nothing is truly scarce.
Finding Your Massively Transformative Purpose
Though Diamandis keeps his eyes to the sky, that doesn’t mean he has his head in the clouds. He acknowledges that every new venture carries the potential for failure.
When asked if he ever has doubts when starting a new business, he says, “Of course, I mean, I’m not insane. But it doesn’t slow me down.” That’s because, though he recognizes entrepreneurship’s inherent difficulties, he draws strength from his unshakeable sense of purpose.
Diamandis recommends beginning every entrepreneurial journey with determining your “Massively Transformative Purpose,” or MTP. This is what keeps you going when the going gets tough; it’s the thing that, even if you do not succeed, grants you the satisfaction of knowing that your time was spent improving humanity.
“People have to understand why they’re building their business,” he says. “If you’re just trying to build a business to make money, I view that as sort of an empty pursuit, and when it gets hard, you don’t have the emotional energy to push through and succeed.”
So what are Diamandis’ MTPs? He has a few: opening up space exploration to more people, extending the healthy human lifespan, and inspiring entrepreneurs to solve the world’s biggest problems. For an advanced entrepreneur, having three MTPs is fine, but Diamandis recommends beginners start with just one.
On Hiring a Team and Finding a Co-Founder
Behind every great entrepreneur is a great team, and Diamandis is no exception. He has a roughly 12-person “strike force” that works with him across all of his ventures. Each team member has been carefully selected.
“I don’t suffer assholes or fools,” says Diamandis, whose rigorous hiring process is proof of that. To fill a position, he’ll sometimes run a global contest. The winners advance to a 60- or 90-day trial period, after which, the entire team has to vote them in, meaning there must be 100 percent acceptance.
“One person who’s out of whack can send the whole thing careening,” he explains. “So it’s really important that we operate as a team.”
While he uses the Kolbe test, which assesses conative skills, Diamandis doesn’t rely heavily on testing to make his choices, preferring to use the team interview process as a major determiner.
Ultimately, though, his hiring decisions boil down to one simple metric: He needs to genuinely like the candidate.
“If when we’re in the meeting and that person is talking, if I’m, in the back of my mind, saying, ‘I wish this guy would shut up,’ that’s not a good situation. On the other hand, if we’re in a meeting and I’m saying, ‘Listen, I haven’t heard from you. I really want to hear your thoughts,’ that’s a good situation. So I need to respect them and want to hear what they have to say.”
Those same likeability and respect factors go into his selecting a co-founder or CEO. For every company Diamandis has started, he picked a co-founder or two to help him get it off the ground. Now that he has more than 20 companies, for some of them, he may step back and serve as founder and chairman and then either promote a co-founder to CEO or hire one to run the company.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Diamandis has his hands on many projects, including a new book he’s working on with Tony Robbins. “I’m doing a lot,” he admits, “but it’s all driven by passion.”
As for work-life balance, for him, it doesn’t exist. “It’s more about work-life integration,” he explains. “I am ‘on’ 24/7. I have two 7-year-old boys; I do my best to prioritize them, but there have been…too many days away, and so there is, for sure, the trade of time.”
That trade-off is a familiar one for any entrepreneur trying to make a difference, big or small. “I know some of the more successful Silicon Valley gazillionaires,” says Diamandis, “and it’s brutal sometimes. But at the end of the day, it’s living a life of meaning and a life of where you get to choose how you spend your time and the dent you want to leave on this planet.”
4 Lessons Every Visionary Founder Can Learn From Peter Diamandis
It’s one thing to want to build a lifestyle business, one whose sole purpose is to make enough money to support the way you live, but it’s quite another to want to build a business that changes the world. If you fall in the latter camp, here’s what you can take away from our talk with Peter Diamandis:
Be true to yourself.
“The most important thing you need to do as a founder of a company is know that you love what you’re doing, and you’re not doing it for your parents, for your friends, for your teacher, out of obligation. … You’re doing it because it is what you love doing.”
Know your MTP.
“What’s your massively transformative purpose? What is it that keeps you going? Who do you want to be a hero to?”
“I teach that the world’s biggest problems are the world’s biggest business opportunities. If you want to become a billionaire, help a billion people.”
Harness exponential technologies to help people at scale.
“As an entrepreneur, you can choose to work hard 40 hours a week…and impact a hundred people, or you can work those same hours and impact a million people. It’s your choice. The tools we have to impact the world are extraordinary.”

Full Transcript of Podcast with Peter Diamandis
Nathan: The first question that I ask everyone that comes on is how did you get your job?
Peter: I think I was born is how I got my job. I don’t think I’ve ever had a job, and I don’t think of anything as a job. I’ve always followed my passion, and at the end of the day, that’s really the world that I feel extraordinarily lucky to live in, one where I am doing what I want to do and have turned my passions, dare I say my fantasy world into my professional world.
I was born in New York, grew up, two parents were immigrants from Greece. My dad was a doctor, wanted me to become a doctor, went to medical school, but I really wanted to become an astronaut. I wanted to become a space enthusiast, I wanted to really open up the space frontier and consequently that was my focus. The Apollo programme, Star Trek, it showed me where the world was, where the world could go.
While I ended up going to medical school to make my parents happy, I really after I graduated medical school, started starting companies. I started a university which is going great called the International Space University, a launch company, a satellite communications company, a company called Zero Gravity Corporation that flies people into weightlessness, the XPRIZE Foundation, Singularity University, a bunch of longevity companies. About 22 companies in total so far, but they’ve all been, starting a company has been a way that I explore an area and really follow my passion.
Nathan: Yeah, wow. That’s incredible. So, 22 companies, and you’ve done some incredible things. I’m most familiar with your work around the XPRIZE Foundation, and so I could talk to you about a vast array of things, but what I’m really curious around is just on that, a lot of founders, they have what you would call shiny object syndrome where you want to start a new company, you want to do this. How do you manage that? Because obviously you’ve got a tonne of things going with 22 companies. Talk to me about that.
Peter: Ultimately Nathan, it was a company at a time. My first company was actually a non-profit called Students for the Exploration and Development of Space, SEDS, that grew into the world’s largest college space organisation around the world, with hundreds of chapters. But one thing led to another and I would typically start a company and hand it off to someone else. I don’t serve as CEO really of more than a single company, but I might serve as founder and chairman, or executive chairman, and always make sure there’s a great CEO that either was a co-founder with me or was hired to run the company.
I think at the end of the day, it really is fundamentally about having a great leader, but pursuing a company is a passion for me. It’s how I fulfil my dreams, my fantasies. It’s my creative world.
Nathan: The company that I guess you’re active in growing is Celularity. Is that-
Peter: Well, there’s about five or six companies. Real quick, the XPRIZE Foundation I spend a good chunk of my time. I’ve got an amazing CEO. I serve as executive chairman and founder at XPRIZE. Anousheh Ansari, who’s started a few multibillion companies, was the first benefactor of my first XPRIZE for space flight. She’s the CEO here now. Singularity University that I co-founded with Ray Kurzweil is up in the Bay Area, and SU is growing super fast.
Rob Nail is the CEO there and I started as executive chairman, I serve as executive founder now. Celularity is a stem cell company that I co-founded with a dear friend, Bob Hariri. I serve as founder and vice chairman. Bob’s the CEO and chairman. Human Longevity’s another company, and I spend a lot of time with my Abundance community. Abundance 360 is my 400 person CEO event in Beverly Hills every year, and then I’ve got a 3000 entrepreneur digital community that I coach every day, the Abundance Digital Group are folks who are probably like your podcast listeners.
They’re entrepreneurs, they’re founders, they’re trying to understand how to use exponential technologies, how to use crowdsourcing, how do they use crowdfunding, how do they find out their massively transformative purpose, and as a result of that, what their moonshots are. For me, it’s about coaching entrepreneurs to go bigger, bolder, and I love sharing my passion, my vision of what I’ve learned with people.
Nathan: Yeah, so one thing that strikes me that’s incredible about you, Peter, is you think so big. You collaborate with some incredible minds, like some of the greatest entrepreneurs of our generation. You’re doing some incredible things with Singularity, or even your Abundance community, or Celularity, stem cell, you’re doing really, really cutting edge things. I’m just curious, what would you say to founders that are no where near thinking at your level. Do they have to be?
Peter: At the end of the day, you have to be true to yourself and the most important thing you need to do as a founder of a company is know that you love what you’re doing, and you’re not doing it for your parents, for your friends, for your teacher, out of obligation, that you’re doing it because it is what you love doing. Doing anything significant in the world is hard. If you don’t love it, if you’re not doing it from your emotional place of energy, you’re going to give up before you succeed. So, for me, I’ve always been a nine year old kid pursuing my dreams.
Nathan: When it comes to pursuing your dreams, what most excites you right now that you’re working on out of all the different projects?
Peter: Oh, my goodness. That’s a hard question. I have two boys, I have two seven year old kids and it’s asking me, “Which of your kids do you like better?” I’ll tell you the answer. It’s a hard one. Listen, I love my Abundance community, my Abundance Digital community, because for me it’s a way of leveraging the world. These are 3000 entrepreneurs that are working to solve the world’s biggest problems, and I teach that the world’s biggest problems are the world’s biggest business opportunities. If you want to become a billionaire, help a billion people. I mean, it’s an amazing world we’re living in there.
I’m very interested in the longevity space, the work that we’re doing in the stem cell world. I think we have the ability to add 10, 20, 30 healthy years on everybody’s life. So, I’m writing my third book, actually my third and fourth book. One called Convergence, another one with Tony Robbins called Life Force, on longevity. I mean, I’m doing a lot, but all driven by passion.
Nathan: When it comes to your … Do you ever doubt yourself? Do you ever think, “Maybe I can’t do this?” Because some of the things you’re doing are just incredible feats, like driving humanity forward in many different ways.
Peter: Of course. I mean, I’m not insane. But it doesn’t slow me down. Meaning I have to enter every conversation at every company with a belief that I can do it, that it can be done, that there’s no, from a first principle thinking, that there’s nothing stopping it from happening. It might be hard to raise the money, it might be hard to get access to what I need, but I don’t need to invent antigravity or go faster than the speed of light. If I believe that it’s a matter of some combination of luck and hard work, and getting the right people involved, then I’m up for that.
Of course, doing stuff that’s easy after a while gets boring, and it’s more a matter of how do I keep myself excited about life? How do I keep myself pushing and growing? A need for growth and contribution and variety, and stability.
Nathan: One thing I think that is really, really important when it comes to building any kind of successful business is the team and the people that are surrounding you. One thing that I think must be the case for you is you must have incredible people that you attract on your journey for all these different companies that you’re creating, driving humanity forward. I’m curious what are things that you look for to create great talent and be a great leader to build an awesome team?
Peter: So, yes, of course. There’s no question that the only way I’m able to do anything I’m able to do is by having an amazing team and set of teams. I need first of all, extraordinary trust, and I need to believe in the team, so right now at XPRIZE and Singularity University and HI and Celularity and my venture fund, BOLD Capital, et cetera, I need to believe in that leader and trust them and support them.
My job is to help them be a great CEO. I have a team of about a dozen millennials that are my personal team, my strike force so to speak, that work with me across everything I do. I go through a very difficult vetting process. We run a global competition sometimes to bring those people in, and then we go through a 60-90 day trial period and then the entire existing team has to vote them, so it’s 100% acceptance.
Peter: It’s a team of a dozen people that work with me, but one person who’s out of whack can send the whole thing careening. So, it’s really important that we operate as a team and I love my team. They take great care of me and my job is to take great care of them, and with them, we run Abundance Digital, we run Abundance 360, we support all my companies and it’s my interior deployable resource. I am thankful for them.
Nathan: What sort of traits and characteristics do you look for? Out of all your experience, what are some things that are most important to you when hiring an attracting great talent?
Peter: That’s a great question. Number one, I need to really like them. How do I say that? I’m going to be spending a lot of time with them. If I don’t like them, so I have a very interesting and simple metric. If when we’re in the meeting, and that person is talking if I’m like in the back of my mind saying, “I wish this guy would shut up,” that’s not a good situation. On the other hand, if we’re in a meeting and I say, “Listen, I haven’t heard from you, I really want to hear your thoughts,” that’s a good situation.
I need to respect them and want to hear what they have to say. I don’t respect people who don’t work hard. Not all the time, but work smart, work hard, are passionate, are driven, have a clear vision of where they want to go. Don’t suffer assholes or fools, and at the end of the day, I will bend over backwards and support my team any way I can. They do the same for me. When you’ve got that, I’m often saying I could run a small country if I needed to with my dozen.
Nathan: Are you doing any kind of tests? Guy like you, you must do Myers–Briggs or DISC profiling. Do you do stuff like that?
Peter: We do some. We do one programme called Kolbe, K-O-L-B-E, but it’s more the interviewing of the team with these individuals. By the way, a third of the people who come in don’t cut it. We’ll say goodbye, but yeah, I tell entrepreneurs all the time, finding your founder or co-founder or CEO or partner is really tough. The mindset that you guys need to have needs to be similar enough that you’re going to be spending a lot of time with this person, and you really have to respect them, appreciate them, want to spend time with them. You can be lucky, but it’s better to have experience.
Nathan: Do you believe you always should start off with a co-founder?
Peter: I do. Every company I’ve ever done has had somebody as a partner, as a thought partner if nothing else. It depends where you are in your career process, but I’ve always had a co-founder, either one co-founder or two co-founders. I mean, especially trying to for some type of big and crazy idea.
Nathan: I’d love to hear your … I know you wrote a whole book on this, but can you tell us around everything you’re doing with Abundance and Abundance University, and the whole premise of the book?
Peter: Yeah, sure. Happily. I wrote a book called Abundance, came out in January, 2012. I gave the opening keynote at TED that year on the topic, and it was at the top of the New York Times and I was very proud, and it was a basic, a bit flip, a mindset change. The realisation is that technology is a force that takes whatever used to be scarce and makes it abundant over and over again. There are countless examples.
Energy is a perfect example. We used to go and kill whales to get oil, to light the nights, and we ravaged mountainsides to get coal, and we drilled kilometres into the ocean floor to get oil. But the reality is that the sun is bathed in 8000 times more energy from the sun than we consume as a species in a year. There is a squanderable abundance of energy. The same thing is true for water. We just awarded the water abundance XPRIZE that is able to pull 2000 litres of water out of the atmosphere, two cents a litre of renewable energy.
Education, healthcare, will eventually through AI be effectively free and available everywhere. We’re discovering resources left, right, and centre. When you look at it, global has made access to knowledge massively abundant. Autonomous electric cars will transform transport, making it five times cheaper to have cars as a service than owning a car.
We’re living in a world where there’s nothing that truly is scarce. Even diamonds that De Beers would teach us are scarce, there’s a company called the Diamond Foundry that a friend of mine runs, that has methane, water, and carbon in one end, and perfect diamonds come out the other end. It’s a thought mindset, right? I believe that we’re heading towards a world where we can uplift every man, woman, and child on this planet, really creating a world of abundance.
On the basis of that, and then the work I do in exponentials, back in 2000 and let’s see … Seven years ago. 2012, thereabouts, I founded something called Abundance 360. It’s a 400 person CEO event. I made a commitment, Nathan, to run a programme for 25 years’ time. Every January, for 25 years, we get together in Beverly Hills. It’s three days, this year we’re going deep on all the exponential technologies and how they’re transforming industries. When that sells out a year in advance, we ended up creating a digital community called Abundance Digital, and it’s about 3000 entrepreneurs.
We are every day, focusing on what’s the technology that’s transforming scarcity to abundance? Where do we see exponential technologies impacting companies, marketplaces? It’s really the place where I spend a lot of my time in conversation. We do about four monthly webinars with community members, and my job is help them, inspire to think bigger, and to change the world.
Any of your listeners by the way, who are interested, Nathan, it’s AbundanceDigital.info, and at the end of the year, we just with a few individuals, we provided a code, it’s normally 1500 bucks, we’re running a 40% discount at the end of the year, so if anybody who is interested could use a code of just foundr40 to get 40% off of Abundance Digital.
Nathan: We have to work towards wrapping up because I’m super mindful of your time, and I could talk to you all day about this stuff, man, but at what point should founders be thinking about these emerging technologies? Should people when they’re thinking of, you said something interesting before, if you want to build a billion dollar business, you have to be prepared to serve at least a billion people, a lot of people are not thinking, “What’s the next thing? What’s the next thing?” They’re just looking at the now. Is that a forward thought process of building a business?
Peter: So, listen, I think that at the end of the day, people have to understand why they’re building their business. If you’re just trying to build a business to make money, I view that as an empty pursuit and when it gets hard, you don’t have the emotional energy to push through and succeed. For me, the most important thing, I discuss this a lot with my Abundance Digital members is, “What’s your massively transformative purpose? What is it that keeps you going? Who do you want to be a hero to? What is the problems you want to solve? What is the dent you want to make in the universe? What is it at the end of this, even if you don’t succeed, you have spent your time in a way that has transformed people’s lives?”
I think that is really critically important and the technologies today, the exponential technologies of computers, sensors, networks, AI, robotics, 3D printing, synthetic biology, augmented, virtual reality, blockchain, all those technologies are what allow you to operate at scale and make a difference. So, as an entrepreneur, you can choose to work hard 40 hours a week or seven days a week, and impact 100 people, or you can work those same hours and impact a million people. It’s your choice.
The tools we have to impact the world are extraordinary. Everyone of us have access to more knowledge and information on Google and Baidu than the heads of countries had 20 years ago. Everyone of us has the ability to spin up 1000 processor cores on Amazon Web or Google Cloud, or gain access to 3D printing on the cloud, or quantum computers on the cloud, or whatever expertise you need. We’re self-limiting in that regard. My job is to help people understand how big a game they can play.
Nathan: I think the game that you’re playing is incredibly high, and I think people that are listening to this right now would be walking away just being really challenged of, “How can I think bigger and have this abundance mindset that you speak of?” So, I’m curious, what’s the dent that you want to make that you leave the world with?
Peter: That’s a great question, Nathan. I talk about the notion of you should being with one empty P, one massively transformative purpose. Then, there you can add on an additional one. I’m pretty advanced in my entrepreneurial career, having done a number of these. My earliest MTP, massively transformative purpose, was really opening up space. I have started with or co-founded what is arguably one of the leading space universities in the world, and Zero G and Space Adventures, and the XPRIZE, and so forth. I’ve known Elon for a better part of 20 years, and Jeff Bezos for nearly 35 years.
At the end of the day, how do you really open up the space frontier for humanity? That’s the first one, and I spend a lot of my energy and time focusing and thinking on those. The second is extending the healthy human lifespan. How do you add 20 or 30 healthy years in a person’s life? I’ve got three companies in that arena.
Then, the fourth one, which is really the work I do with the Abundance community, the XPRIZE Foundation, Singularity University, is around the idea of solving the world’s biggest problems. How do I empower entrepreneurs to really go big, to change the world, to solve the world’s biggest problems? That’s a passion for me.
Nathan: Amazing. Well look, two last questions before we wrap up. You’ve done some incredible things thus far in your life, what have been the sacrifices that you’ve had to make to get where you are today? What have you had to give up? Because I think this journey that founders are on, it’s always refreshing to hear about the hard times and then, the last thing is where’s the best place people can find out more about yourself and your work? You mentioned Abundance community, but would you like to share your latest books that are coming out, or anything at all?
Peter: Yeah. The first is there’s no question, the style of my life is not, there’s no balance in my life. It’s more about work/life integration. I am on 24/7, I have two seven year old boys, I do my best to prioritise them, but there have been too many red eyes and too many days away. So, there is for sure the trade of time that we have. That is you’re trading sleep and ultimately to some degree, you’re trading health.
Nothing in this comes for free. I know some of the more successful Silicon Valley gazillionaires, and it’s brutal sometimes. But at the end of the day, it’s living a life of meaning and a life where you get to choose how you spend your time and the dent you want to leave on this planet. For me, if folks are interested, they can learn more about my Abundance community at AbundanceDigital.info. They can learn, get access to my blogs at Diamandis.com. XPRIZE.org is the organisation I use to run global competitions and then SU.org is Singularity University. But I think AbundanceDigital.info and Diamandis.com is a good starting point.
Nathan: Amazing. Well look, Peter, thank you so much for your time and everything you do. I’ve walked away with this conversation incredibly inspired and challenged for the work that we do at foundr, and yeah, really pushed my mindset and I’m sure countless others forward from listening to this, so thank you so much for your time and yeah, I really appreciate it. Hope you have a great day, mate.
Peter: Thank you. Thank you Nathan. Be well.
Nathan: You too.
Peter: Take care.
