    715 - How to Win The Crowd!? with The Millionaire's Magician, Steve Cohen

    This is a fascinating episode that I learned so much! I have on the Millionaire's Magician, Steve Cohen, who has performed for Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, Barry Diller, Martha Stewart, Jack Welch, Michael Eisner, Stephen Sondheim, André Previn, Anne-Sophie Mutter, the Queen of Morocco, and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, and also done more than 5000 shows around the world!

    In this episode, we don't just talk about magic, we don't just talk about his journey of becoming the Millionaire's Magician, we talked about his book, Win The Crowd, and how we can use the misdirection techniques and influence techniques in our life!

    One quick sneak peek, do you know that people are more willing to do what you ask if you give them two commands instead of one? Give it a try!

    714 - You're INVITED to The Art and Science of Cultivating Influence with Jon Levy

    I remember a couple of years ago, one day when I was asleep, my friend woke me up in the middle of the night and "invite" me to a dinner party. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! I have nothing better to do, so I went along. It turns out, it was the best dinner party that I ever have been, and was organized by the great organizer and influencer, Jon Levy!

    In this episode, I have him on again to talk about his new book, You're Invited: The Art & Science of Cultivating Influence. We talked about what's the real meaning of being an Influencer? It's not about having a million followers on TikTok, Instagram, or whatever social media platform. Also, why does he set out to organize all this amazing dinner party that features famous people, and why does he like connect people? Listen and find out! You might get the Invitation to his next dinner party!

$ Make Me A Millionaire!! $

If there’s anyone who can make you a millionaire, it’s James Altucher and his peak-performance guests. All you need to do is listen, learn and take action!

James doesn’t know it, but he’s been my virtual mentor for years now, as I’ve followed his writing and lessons to “Choose Myself”.

Personally, I would love to hear from more female entrepreneurs; the podcast with Sara Blakely was hugely inspiring for me and I wish there were more female success stories!

Reinvention and peak performance

James continually reinvents himself and invites us to listen in whilst he does so. Mix that in with the conversations he has with other peak performers, to understand further how they achieve. Invaluable pointers from a humble successful man.

James. Please interview Toto Wolff, head of the Mercedes Benz Formula One team. He once spent a entire 24 hour flight from Australia to the UK not reading, not viewing, just with his own thoughts. A high achiever and reinventer who stands out amongst a group noted for great achievement.

Wish he let the guests talk and kept it brief with more focus on audio quality

With all respect to this guy, not sure is it just me or does anyone else find the conversations on a bit of hostile and never let the guests finish what they are trying to convey. If he wants to talk and let his ideas flow he could do that on his own episodes, we would still listen!
After listening to Tim Ferris or other similar guys, had to constantly adjust the volume to manage the ups and downs on the voice side!
