    Brad Hart - How Blockchain And Crypto Currencies Are Changing Business

    Brad Hart - How Blockchain And Crypto Currencies Are Changing Business

    Today we're talking to Brad Hart. As an experienced entrepreneur, investor, trader, advisor, and mentor to people who want more from their life, Brad has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs and investors, built a hedge fund that returned 106% net of expenses in 2013, has been featured multiple times in Forbes (as well as several popular blogs like The Four-Hour Workweek). His articles have been read over 1,000,000 times.
     
    Brad is a sought after speaker, thought leader, and exchanges radical ideas with heavy hitters in multiple industries. After building (and helping to build) several successful ventures in various industries (trading, real estate, etc.), he has refocused on what he loves most: Building businesses, managing wealth, mentoring entrepreneurs, and helping others to create abundance in all areas of their lives.
     
    Driven by a belief that the “how,” or “strategy” behind achieving mastery and growth becomes clear only when you become clear on your outcome, finding your strengths, key emotional drivers, and purpose, Brad operates his business and life by the motto that “the right mindset produces the right strategy, but even the best strategy in the world can't help the person with the wrong mindset.”

Luke Avedon ,

Paul gets you the good stuff

Here are some reasons why you should listen to this podcast:

The first reason is because Paul pulls an excellent variety of guests: from copywriting guru Ben Settle, on why you should email every day, to Evan Baehr on how to get cash money for your business. The second reason you should listen, Paul asks all the exact questions you wish you could ask if you were there in the room. Paul asks the tough questions. He gets the guests to spill their guts and he holds nothing back.

For example, top marketers will reveal to you the exact steps they are using to generate leads right now for their business. Paul also owns a lead generation company and you get to hear those secrets as well.

I like how Paul isn't afraid to be vulnerable. He is not afraid to share the personal challenges he had to overcome on his journey. As Paul says himself, "If you are struggling tune in, and if you are on a high - remember things can change at any moment."

Highly recommended.
