We are the World with Ken Kragen
I love people who do the impossible. Those rare gems that don’t just talk about ideas but actually do it.
Ken Kragen is one of these rare gems. Not only did he manage Kenny Rogers, Lionel Richie, Trisha Yearwood, Olivia Newton John, The Bee Gees, Burt Reynolds, The Smothers Brothers and many other top artist but he also got into TV and film producing and married a beautiful actress. Oh, and he’s a graduate of Harvard Business School. Most people would just coast on their past success but not Ken.
He came up with the USA for Africa campaign and brought together the producers and artists behind We Are the World, a song that everyone knows and that raised millions of dollars to help the world hungry.
How many people do you know that could just call Quincy jones to ask
Enjoy the show and check out Ken's websitehttps://www.kenkragen.com/ for information about his books and his speaking and consulting work.
Adam Lewis Walker
When you hear the word disruption, most people think technology but perhaps the most import thing to disrupt is yourself and Adam Lewis Walker is one individual that has disrupted himself several times over. As you’ll learn, Adam, after pushing himself too hard had no choice but to change gears.
Adam went from screaming in pain on the ground and in the rain in front of his family on a day that was supposed to be his big comeback to a powerful man, father, leader and author.
Enjoy the podcast, read his book (http://www.ayalpha.com/book/) and subscribe to his podcast (http://www.ayalpha.com/blog/)
It is rare to meet someone who could be your brother. Born in the same country (Romania), left around the same age, both love tequila, Mexican music, life, family, travel, business, adventure and having fun while making money.
Andre has been hustling in business ever since his family landed in California when he was 9 and he has been ultra successful. We we met, he had just kicked off a successful business in the CBD space and I was intrigued. I knew very little about Multiple Level Marketing aka Network Marketing and frankly was negatively biased. Mostly because others were so I decided to investigate and figure it out for myself.
Consider this part 1 of many. I'm learning a lot more about network marketing and truly believe it is a powerful model that so many ignore it because they don't understand what it is.
As a result, they miss out on a life changing opportunity that can lead to serious life changing revenue for those that take it seriously. It requires little investment and become a great side hustle and even a full-time gig for the truly dedicated.
PS. The badassery factory website mentioned in the recording is still being worked on. I'll update this when it is ready to go.
Steve Sims - Part Deux
I had the pleasure of doing a podcast with Steve Sims a while back when he was only running an exclusive concierge service for the ultra rich and working with guys like Elon Musk, Elton John and Andrea Bocelli.
He had hinted about a book that was under discussion and now that the book Bluefishing has been out for while and has seen great success, including translations into many foreign languages and a 4.9 rating on Amazon, Steve is a man in motion.
He's been to jail (listen to learn why) and is now working more closely with entrepreneurs to help them move the needle instead of focusing just on consulting for luxury brands.
I HAD to get him back on the podcast. In this episode we touch on some of his core ugly and raw philosophies, we discuss jail and why he's decided to help independent entrepreneurs.
We recorded this episode at Ye Olde Kings Head in Santa Monica. A bit noisy!

Thank you to Kaitlin Isfan for all the hours spent editing this episode and especially making it sounds 100 times better than the original recording.
Also, big thanks to Big Swede Studios (Downtown LA) for graciously allowing me to use one of his musical composition as background music. His music has ben used in hundreds of TV episodes and commercials and I feel privileged to know him and to have the rights to use one of his songs. Thank you!
Jordan Harbinger - Media Personality, Podcaster & Relationship Expert
I could not think of a better way to kick off season 2 of Maximum Impact than by having Jordan Harbinger as my guest.
Jordan Harbinger is a lawyer turned podcaster and media personality who could easily have his life turned into a movie.
The movie would start with a young boy listening in on his neighbors phone conversation by splicing in to the green box down the street. Fast forward, he helped use his tech chops to help the FPI catch pedophiles in the early days of the internet and many other adventures.
Jordan ultimately built one of the worlds largest podcast over the last 11 years only to start over in January after a falling out with his partners.
His new show is better than ever now that he has full control of every aspect. It is funny, entertaining and you're guaranteed to learn something with every episode, even if you don't necessarily know the guest. Just listen.
