Patrick J. McGinnis

Patrick J. McGinnis, the host and creator of FOMO Sapiens, is an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, author, and speaker.

Patrick coined the terms FOMO and FOBO in 2003 when he was a student at Harvard Business School (fun fact, at the same time, Mark Zuckerberg was just across the Charles River inventing Facebook, which would help to bring FOMO to the masses – thanks, Mark!)

He is the author of the international bestsellers The 10% Entrepreneur: Live Your Startup Dream Without Quitting Your Day Job and Fear of Missing Out: Practical Decision-Making in a World of Overwhelming Choice, and his TED Talk “How to Make Faster Decisions” has been viewed over a million times.
