128 Andrew Warner: How to Win Friends (& Build a 7-Fig Business) With High Impact Conversations
“Are you doing at least a million dollars in sales?”
(Aggravated)”We’re doing twenty or thirty times that!”
I've always admired bold interviewers. One particular one is Andrew Warner.
Andrew is the founder of Mixergy, a place where he interviews founders for their hard-earned lessons and tactics. Andrew has interviewed over 2000 entrepreneurs in the last ten years.
He has had the founders of Wikipedia, LinkedIn, Groupon, Pixar, and Sun Microsystems.
And Andrew goes after questions people want to know but are too timid to ask, including revenues, rumors, personal relationships, public failures, etc...
I've always wondered how Andrew cultivates trust so that he gets the answers he wants (without the founders hating him afterward)
Now, at last, Andrew has put all the interview mechanics into his new book Stop Asking Questions: How to Lead High-Impact Interviews and Learn Anything from Anyone
In our conversation, I took a step deeper:
(23:13) The atomic unit skills he uses to master in order to go from a white belt to a black belt as an interviewer (and build a good multi-million dollar podcasting business)(12:44) How 2000 deep conversations impact him, his network, his career, and his lifestyle(5:09) How podcasting as a lifestyle allowed him to do 7 marathons in all 7 continents in 1 year (while (while growing his podcast business))(60:50) What new tech stack and show format he would use starting today?(11:54) The inside-out approach Andrew recommends beginner podcast use?(16:16)The framework he uses to flush out the questions he finds valuable for himself while maintaining what's valuable for the audience?(20:48) How Chris Rock gave Andrew Warner an idea that is at the heart of his craft as an interviewer?(23:30)How double-barrel questions enable him to ask edgier questions while giving guests a graceful out(39:43)Why being interviewed is a vulnerable experience for anyone and we offer 3 different styles of hosts can use encourage guests(43:34)How Andrew maintained his intrinsic motivation so every new guest is brand new and never gets repetitive(31:27)Which thread to follow: shoved facts or story arc?(45:35)Which strategy to follow: start new micro podcasts or stay within your brand?(49:04)How he stays connected with guests after the recording is over?(56:35)(bonus) A ninja technique Andrew uses to connect with all the VIPs at any conference(44:46)Why he started another podcast in the crypto space?
If you want to have high-impact conversations with anyone (especially your heroes), this episode is the episode you'd want to tune in.

127 Jenn Lim: Beyond Happiness (& Tony Hsieh): Roadmap For More Impact, Profit, & Purpose
Before I introduce this week’s guest...
There I was sitting on the Delivering Happiness bus at the 2010 TED conference and Tony Hsieh (the CEO of Zappos) was pouring me shots. I thought I had made it.
(I was hanging out with the Zappos guy!)
Fast forward 10 years, when I heard the news we had lost Tony in late 2020. I felt a deeper sense of loss.
I only had a few personal interactions with him. By no means we were friends.
But unbeknownst to me, I saw him as a fellow Asian Noble Warrior who was actively pushing the envelope of cultural and business norms. I have grown to admire and respect him.
Jenn and Tony were at the forefront of a movement that is making "purpose” cool in business. They were co-founders of Delivering Happiness, a consultancy that helps companies create happier company cultures for a more profitable and sustainable approach to business.
Tony was also her soulmate. They've been close friends for decades.
So this conversation was more personal and reminiscing of Tony.
But this is also a conversation with a thought leader.
Jenn Lim is the CEO/co-founder of Delivering Happiness. They help companies create happier company cultures for a more profitable and sustainable approach to business.
She is the author of her new book Beyond Happiness How Authentic Leaders Prioritize Purpose and People for Growth and Impact.
Beyond Happiness offers inspiring stories from Jenn, case studies from 400 businesses, practical mental frameworks to implement these big ideas.
If you are a business leader who values your employees as assets, not expenses; and you want tactical ways to operationalize your value for more purpose and PROFIT, this is a conversation you don't want to miss.
We talked about...
✏️ How she lost her cofounder and soulmate Tony Hsieh and how it changed the book Beyond Happiness 5 weeks before the book is due
✏️ (60:10) Why alignment session amongst stakeholders is THE best tool for businesses to immediately inject more purpose, impact, profit in uncertain times
✏️ (39:24) The core quality that makes Tony Hsieh a business and cultural innovator
✏️ (51:53) The mental model she figured out after helping 400 businesses integrate people, purpose, and profit
✏️ (53:47)The case study of how Starbucks got even stronger after COVID
✏️ (23:38) The 24-hour resilience test - how to quickly determine how bulletproof you actually are
✏️ (29:05) (22:15) The 2 meta frameworks to uncover your deepest core values: movies and high-low moments
✏️ (46:58)How to influence a skeptical CFO about purpose and culture
✏️ (13:31)And finally the key life lessons she learned about happiness and purpose and resilience from losing Tony and her Dad
Beyond Happiness offers inspiring stories from Jenn, case studies from 400 businesses, practical mental frameworks to implement these big ideas. If you value people and you want practical frameworks to bring more purpose and people, and profit in these volatile times,
