    606 - No STUPID questions with Stephen Dubner and Angela Duckworth

    My good friend Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics and host of the "Freakonomics Radio" podcast, has a new podcast called “No Stupid Questions” co-hosted by Angela Duckworth, author of Grit: The Power of Passion. So I “sat” down with both of them, and discuss some of the “non-stupid” questions that they have asked on their podcast! For example, what’s common between Tom Sawyer and the founder of Duo Lingo, does all creativity comes from pain, and what does it mean to be a hard worker? Listen to the episode and find out! 

    Check out their new podcast, “No Stupid Questions” on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts. Also on their website: https://freakonomics.com/nsq/

    604 - There’s always a good reason and there’s a real reason - Jordan Harbinger

    I "sat" down with my good friend, Jordan Harbinger to continue our conversation about networking from Episode 578.

    We then talk about the secret agendas people carrying around: there’s always a good reason, and there’s a real reason. Then...why do people fall for extreme conspiracies? And what does it mean when a "guru" has a cult-like following? There's no such thing as half-way crooks!

Phenomenal guests and amazing insights!

James long ago set the standard for interview podcasts. Now he’s branched out into solo episodes but kept the quality of the interviews top notch. How does he do it? I don’t know. But please keep it up!

DoItBestfortheTest ,

Insightful, entertaining, and educational--a podcast on business and LIFE

James writes at least 10 new ideas every day just to keep his "idea machine" working--he does this EVERY DAY and we should, TOO. Here are 10 ideas about this podcast:
1. 2-in-1 Podcast: He does long-form interviews with interesting guests AND does a playback of his Q&A that airs on IG Live. Podcast runs 4 times per week.
2. James has been rich and lost it all..more than once. He has been married three times. So he has the real experience--good and bad.
3. He has invaluable lessons on being an entrepreneur AND on being human, on leadership, on relationships, and on love. He openly shares the horrible mistakes he made so you can avoid making them too.
4. His guests are some of the most influential people you may have never heard of. He is curious (and sometimes relentless) when interviewing guests--no softballs--it's almost like he can read your mind when he asks the questions that YOU would ask if you were there. Find out what's happening behind the scenes in government, politics, business, and more.
5. James shares his real world stories--he is totally open and vulnerable--raw & real. You get the straight scoop on how to be successful here (in business and in LIFE). He gets his guests to open up to be vulnerable, too. You hear stuff here you won't hear anywhere else.
6. He also openly shares his doubts and uncertainty about whatever is happening in the news (and doesn't pretend to have all the answers).
7. He is honest--sometimes TOO honest.
8. During the Q&A he is joined by his brilliant and beautiful wife, Robyn-- she is an entrepreneur, too, and a SUPERMOM. She always has a ton of great life advice. (Secret: They met when Robyn was seeking investment advice from James about special farms!—listen to his interview of HER to find out what the farms grow.).
9. Every week James gives away his best business ideas on how to go from $0 to $10milion in less than 2 years--Real ideas anybody can make work. As of this writing we are up to $700million dollars in great ideas given away for FREE. (You'll be mad you didn't think of them!).
10. And there is idea sex, hub and spoke, best headline of the day, persuasion techniques, Batman tech, and so much more--tune in to find out what this is all about.
