Heleo Daily conversations with the world's top writers and thinkers.

We started Heleo because we wanted a better way to discover and interact with today’s great writers and thinkers. We are all hit by a Tsunami of content options every day – never in human history has there been so much to watch, read, forward, swipe and winky-face. Over 600,000 new books are published every year. On YouTube, 300 new hours of video are uploaded every second. Where do you even start? At Heleo, we believe you start with people. Specifically, thought leaders — both established and up-and-coming — who engage, inspire, and motivate readers to make changes in their lives and the world. Neuroscientists, historians, biologists, economists, journalists, psychologists, entrepreneurs … Heleo thought leaders come from a wide range of backgrounds. What they all share, however, is a love of discovery, of investigation and exploration, and equally important, a love of communicating their stories and insights in entertaining, memorable ways. So do we. We’re a lighter, faster, internet-native, more humble version of the media company. Our mission is to elevate these thought leaders, to help today’s great thinkers spread their ideas and build online audiences. We are believers – we think that the right book, the right speech, the right new habit, the right cautionary tale or clarion call, the right I-just-can’t-take-it-anymore rant, the right insight on what makes us tick — perhaps even the right tidying tip — at the right moment, can be life-changing. Our goal is to make sure that everyone has access to these transformative ideas in a format they can use, and that the thinkers who create them have the tools and incentives they need to keep inventing fresh ideas.

Mission: To connect writers and readers in powerful new ways, elevating ideas that matter.

The End Of Empathy

We've stopped empathizing with those we don't agree with—and that's a problem.

It's hard to be civil without being empathetic. But researchers say our natural instinct for empathy may be going out of style.

Good question, Publishers Weekly! We think the answer is yes.

Although serial entrepreneur Rufus Griscom has a background in books, he had no intention of getting into the book business when he launched a new venture, Heleo, in 2015. With the Next Big Idea Club, that's changed.

Next Big Idea Club Review + Coupon - Spring 2019

MySubscriptionAddiction just posted their review of our latest box!

Highlights include —

For 'Loonshots':
"...this book really interested me as someone who is always full of crazy ideas. What is different about this particular book is that while it gives examples of crazy ideas gone wildly right, it also explores WHY those ideas were able to take hold and flourish while others crashed and burned."

For 'No Hard Feelings':
"I am one of those sensitive people who is really easily affected by my surroundings and the undercurrent of emotions both negative and positive surrounding me. I also work a ton of different jobs and navigating the ups and downs of each can be exhausting. It doesn’t help that they are all so vastly different in terms of climate and peers. It can be hard to not feel carried away with all of the emotions any of us encounter on a day to day basis. This book aims to explain that emotions at work shouldn’t be left at the door, but that they can be used as a tool to craft healthier and happier work environments. As a total workaholic, that last point really speaks to me personally."

Turn. Off. Your. Email.

Laura Vanderkam explains the key to a.m. productivity.

Email is a magnificent tool. I’m old enough to remember when it wasn’t universal. I learned to report by — this might seem crazy — calling people. Even the first time you wanted to speak to the person! You had to pick up the phone, call, and explain what you wanted. We might wax nostalgic .....
