    72| Noah Kagan: How to Create Your Millionaire Weekend

    Join me this week, my friends, as I I delve into a decade-long connection with my guest, Noah Kagan! We explore the evolution of his content creation journey and the invaluable lessons learned from interviewing billionaires. Noah shares insights on avoiding pitfalls in life, the significance of partner selection, and the unexpected ways people achieve wealth. We discuss his Life Quest 2022 dedicated to finding a wife and starting a family, including the unconventional but empowering process of hiring dating coaches. As he embarks on this new chapter, we touch on adjustments in his approach to business and the enduring elements in business that will remain constant. We also delve into Noah's recently released book Million Dollar Weekend, exploring its transformative potential for readers seeking impactful changes in their lives.
    Noah really opens up about his personal journey, the anticipation of impending fatherhood, and the adjustments he plans to make in his approach to business. Reflecting on his success, he also shares thoughts on the overrated aspects of getting rich and the joy found in the work itself rather than the achieved outcome. We explore his vision of the future of business, focusing on solopreneurship and total automation, and the tools and services he recommends for starting a six or seven-figure business. Noah even offers his perspective on the impact he's making on millions and his intentional efforts to counterbalance self-criticism with self-kindness.
    As Million Dollar Weekend emphasizes, patience is a crucial element in the pursuit of success, and he encourages individuals to navigate challenges without giving up, fostering resilience and acknowledging that perfection may take time!
    If you enjoy this interview with Noah, then I would love if you were to subscribe on your favorite podcast app if you aren’t subscribed already so that you never miss a new episode, and if you would share the podcast with at least one other person you know who might also enjoy it and leave me a five-star review, that really helps me and the show out and would really mean a lot to me!

    68| 321 Method For Better Sleep

    68| 321 Method For Better Sleep

    What is up, my friends? Today, I am discussing a common struggle many of us face: sleepless nights. I recently helped a client transform his life by revolutionizing his sleep routine, and the changes were nothing short of astounding. We explored a simple yet powerful approach I call the 3-to-1 method for better sleep. This method focuses on creating effective systems rather than fixating on outcomes, ensuring sustainable results.
    My client, a chronic night owl, used to hit his pillow at around 2 a.m. only to be rudely awakened at 6 a.m. due to his responsibilities, but with a combination of small tweaks, we managed to shift his schedule. By stopping food intake three hours before bedtime, avoiding liquids two hours prior, and donning blue light blockers an hour before, he found himself peacefully asleep by 10 p.m., waking up refreshed at 6 a.m. These changes weren't just about adding hours to his slumber; they led to an incredible surge in his energy levels, transforming his daily life.
    I hope that you will join me today as I unpack this game-changing 3-to-1 method. It's not just about getting more sleep; it's about creating a sustainable system that can revolutionize your energy, focus, and overall well-being! With three simple steps, better sleep awaits you!
