$ 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!
