    Breaking Free from Your Limited Mindset with Naveen Jain | You Are Only Limited by Your Imagination

    Breaking Free from Your Limited Mindset with Naveen Jain | You Are Only Limited by Your Imagination

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Naveen K. Jain, who is an Indian-American business executive, entrepreneur, and the founder and former CEO of InfoSpace. We had an amazing conversation about dreaming big and going after that dream no matter how crazy it may seem. So many people, especially young people, are afraid of failing, but failing is just part of the process and is just part of finding that one way that does work. Naveen tells me all about the amazing things he’s been doing in the business world and how he’s influencing the innovations in health and many other areas of people’s lives. “Your self worth doesn’t come from what you own. Your self worth comes from what you create and if you haven’t created anything of your own, you’re still a parasite on humanity. So just do me a favor and don’t be a parasite. Go out and do something amazing.” 5:14

    “I think you and I have always talked about that. Our success is never going to be measured by how much money we have in the bank. It will always be measured by how many people’s lives you actually improve, and that is a sign of success.” 4:48

Real and genuine

Antony has interviewed the likes of Jane Seymour, Dennis Prager, Ben Shapiro, and many others. His Podcast cuts through the facade people feel they need to portray and reveals the authentic human side of a person's soul. Antony’s interviews are real, genuine, and worth a listen.

Trevor Noah invitation

Hi Anthony: I’m not sure when your message went out to Mr. Noah. I refer to the one currently circulating in which you invite him to respond. Did you ever hear from him? Enquiring minds would like to know.
