    604 - There’s always a good reason and there’s a real reason - Jordan Harbinger

    604 - There’s always a good reason and there’s a real reason - Jordan Harbinger

    I "sat" down with my good friend, Jordan Harbinger to continue our conversation about networking from Episode 578.

    We then talk about the secret agendas people carrying around: there’s always a good reason, and there’s a real reason. Then...why do people fall for extreme conspiracies? And what does it mean when a "guru" has a cult-like following? There's no such thing as half-way crooks!

    603 - The New Way to Make Six Figures Working For Yourself Writing with Jon Morrow

    603 - The New Way to Make Six Figures Working For Yourself Writing with Jon Morrow

    Jon Morrow made half a million dollars WRITING in less than 9 months. Most people make $0 from writing in a whole lifetime. But Jon is proof that you can get rich writing. I went on his podcast not too long ago. It's called "Break Through The Noise.: And now I'm airing it here for you. We talk about how people can learn to make good money as a writer. 

    Here's a list of what we talk about.

    But ALSO, I want you to know that Jon has a very special course available to my listeners right now. You'll hear about it in the episode. And if you like what you hear check it out at smartblogger.com/james
    How to say something no one else is saying
    How to turn vulnerability into courage
    Why admitting something is so powerful and makes you more free in life
    How to turn your life story into a personal brand
    How to find your motivation
    How to use your hobby to meet people and make friends 
    How to focus group your audience
    How to speak from a core point of view 
    What it takes to tell a good story
    How to tell fascinating stories
    How to develop a strong sense of self
    How to monetize AND why you're not selling out if you're selling

    And more.

    Again, remember you can learn directly from Jon. I know a lot of people are worried about the economy right now. But you don't have to be. Because money isn't disappearing. It's just shifting to a new kind of work. And if you're willing to make that shift, it's actually shocking how much money you can make. So go check it out at smartblogger.com/james

    And learn how you can make money as a freelance writer with no boss all from your couch.

    602 - You Can Change Passions at ANY Point in your Life with Rich Roll

    602 - You Can Change Passions at ANY Point in your Life with Rich Roll

    Rich Roll QUIT his job in his 40's. Then he started over completely. He went from lawyer to extreme athlete, bestselling author, podcaster, a speaker and more. I went on his podcast recently. And now we're airing it here. We talked all about this idea of giving yourself permission to switch passions (or follow the one you've always dreamed of). Because it's never too late. I've switched careers in my 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's. I'll keep reinventing until I die. That's how you stay alive. BUT you also don't want to have to be at the bottom when you start over. So we talk about that too. 

    Here's a list of things you'll learn about:
    How to do what people told you you never could do
    What to do when your fear of other people's opinion is bigger than your will to change your life
    Why fear is IMPORTANT in reinvention
    How to get the courage you need every day
    My upcoming book, "Skip The Line" and my latest book "Think Like A Billionaire"
    Rich's story of leaving his job in his 40's and starting over
    How to transfer skills from one job to a new one
    The importance of experimentation
    How to believe in yourself
    How to come up with ideas for reinvention (and how to know which ideas are good ones)
    Goal setting (when NOT to do it. And when to do it)
    Hot to discover what you actually like doing in life

    ALSO, make sure you get yourself this snack for quarantine. I'm obsessed. It's OutStanding Foods "Pigless Pork Rinds" (aka it's vegan). It tastes delicious. And it's full of protein. So you can feel good about snacking on it. I worked out a special deal for you. Just go to think link PigOutWithJames.com

Samapolis ,

Thank you James

Appreciate all of your advice. You’ve inspired a lot of entrepreneurs that they can lose it all and still come back!

Best wishes to you during this period.

Montreal2003 ,

Loves himself too much

Take episode 603 for example: James Althucher invited a guest, talked for two hours about himself, asked the guest no questions, and that was it. James Altucher is in love with himself.

Ida JCK ,

As we think it, he asks it

Love James’ style of interviewing. He asks the questions and keeps asking until we ALL get it. Great podcast.
