    Can Learning Early With Games Make You A Genius?

    Can Learning Early With Games Make You A Genius?

    Ep #223 - This week on the podcast, I'm joined by Opher Brayer and Mark Hirsch to discuss a unique education platform called 'Games of Genius' that teaches children the foundations of how to learn. Opher, a world-famous talent coach and educator, developed this program for parents of children aged 4 and up, because the educational system hasn't changed in decades. It fails to prepare our kids for a world where robots and AI will outperform humans and replace many of the jobs that exist today. The games you’ll discover on Games of Genius have turned poor performers into stars, transformed schools around the world and enabled Opher's son to attend college at age 13.
     
    Mark is a highly accomplished executive with a string of successes in new and existing venture start-ups, product development, sales and marketing. He's a strategy-driven business leader with 20+ years of experience across multiple industry verticals spanning e-commerce, financial publishing, information products, public relations, and more. With Opher as his partner, Mark is aiming to take the 'Games of Genius' platform to a worldwide audience and turn it into a household name.
     
    In today's interview, we discuss the process behind 'Games of Genius,' why our current education models fail and how this program can turn any child into a "gifted" prodigy. Listen in for the details.

    Dean Cain, Actor, TV Host & Media Personality, Shares The Choices That Shaped His Life...

    Ep #219 - In a very special episode of The Driven Entrepreneur podcast, I'm joined by actor, TV host and media personality Dean Cain. If you don't know Dean, he's most popular for portraying the man of steel, Superman, on the 90's TV show "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman." Beyond his well-known acting reputation, he's also a Princeton graduate and a former professional football player where he signed with the Buffalo Bills before being injured. You may have seen him hosting 'The Today Show,' appearing on Fox News and in several TV and film roles he's taken on throughout his career.
    In this interview, we go into Dean's backstory, what it was like growing up with parents in show business and how his upbringing shaped his life. Of course, I ask a couple questions about his experience playing Superman along with Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. We also go into his current work, his social media activity and what's next for him.
