    Make You a Millionaire! - James Quandahl EP02: Spoke-and-Wheel Techniques!

    Make You a Millionaire! - James Quandahl EP02: Spoke-and-Wheel Techniques!

    In the first Make You a Millionaire episode with James Quandahl, I showed him some of the interview techniques that I would use when I am interviewing people. We even did a couple of spontaneus interviews right there and then! In this episode, we broke down some of his idea lists, and use the Spoke-and-Wheel techniques from my Skip The Line book to come up with even more ideas, more ways to monetize his idea list!

    711 - Science VS Religion with Dr. Brian Keating

    Another episode with Dr. Brian Keating! I always enjoy episodes like this, we were supposed to talk about a very specific topic, which is the beginning of the Big Bang!

    Brian Keating is the Chancellor’s Professor of Physics at UC San Diego. He hosts INTO THE IMPOSSIBLE (https://www.youtube.com/DrBrianKeating?sub_confirmation=1), a podcast about science, leadership, and happiness, and is the is author of a bestselling cosmic memoir called “Losing the Nobel Prize“.

    710 - Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That's Lost Its Mind with Jamie Wheal

    710 - Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That's Lost Its Mind with Jamie Wheal

    What a great title and subtitle for a book, Recapture the Rapture: Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That's Lost Its Mind, by Jamie Wheal, author, Founder, and Executive Director at Flow Genome Project!

    I have to say, the world has lost its mind. Just the past year, in 2020, the world rather argue on twitter about anything from epidemiology to politics, than doing things that are actually better for them. In this episode, Jamie talks about the critical issues with mankind, like how we think about them and how we use them could help us improve our mind, and get into the "Flow" state!
