    69. Moving Capital from Active Sources into Passive Investments: Roundtable Featuring Chris Munn and Sergio Silesky

    In this episode Neel and Johnny welcome Sergio Silesky and Chris Munn to discuss different ways to deploy cash.

    Sergio is a business partner of Johnny and is in "cash stack" mode so all the income they are earning is getting reinvested into the business.

    Chris has often used his active income to invest in more passive businesses like real estate or already-running businesses doing between $1-5M in EBITDA.

    They also discuss:


    Why buying and renting out a single family home is a terrible idea (Chris calls it "a low-paying job")
    How syndicate deals offer people a way into better returns in real estate without having to have significant capital on hand
    Why having some form of passive income matters if you ever plan to retire or stop doing active businesses.

    68. Gurus like Grant Cardone and Gary Vee: Love 'em or Hate 'em?

    In this episode Neel and Johnny discuss the business of gurus and how they've both changed their attitude on them over time.

    Johnny was formerly a hater until he himself became a "guru" by sharing information in free and paid form. As for Neel, he used to be anti-guru too, until he learned to simply "respect the funnel" and see that these guys did work really hard, even if their style wasn't for everyone.

    They also discuss:


    Some of their favorite gurus — both Neel and Johnny are Alex Hormozi guys.
    Their process of "vetting" gurus and their claims.
    The danger that some people will (incorrectly) see these gurus as models for entrepreneurship.

    66. Key Lessons from a $50K Mastermind

    66. Key Lessons from a $50K Mastermind

    In this episode Neel and Johnny discuss the benefits of a $50,000+ mastermind that Johnny and his business partner joined.

    Originally Johnny had hired this company to help with sales and in classic "value ladder" style the company overdelivered on the entry-level product so that Johnny was primed to hear an upsell. Things had gone so well with the original sales help they asked for that it was a no-brainer to join the mastermind (even though they had to split up the payments). Johnny's loved all that has happened since, including a training weekend he recently attended.

    Neel and Johnny also discuss:


    why mission, vision, and values is key to taking your company to $100k MRR
    why Johnny's e-learning business is now actively disqualifying 70% of their leads
    the power of fellowship being with other entrepreneurs making a lot of money online

    You'll also hear Johnny share some of his company's values and why they're really important as you grow your company beyond 3-5 employees.

    65. Experiencing 24 Hours with an African Hunter-Gatherer Tribe

    In this episode Johnny catches up with Neel about his recent visit with the Hazda tribe in Tanzania. Neel got the special government permission necessary to go out there and learned a lot.

    Neel's day started with joining some of the members of the tribe hunting for food. He was blown away at how fast the tribal members moved through the bush and how accurate they were with the bow and arrow.

    Neel and Johnny also discuss:


    what an average day is like for the Hazda 
    why the Hazda reject newer technologies and convenience in general
    Neel's observations of the tribe's happiness

    You'll also hear about the inside joke Neel built with the tribe around his name, an extracurricular activity of the hunt that brought him back to his college days, and why some Hazda who enter the civilized world end up coming back.

    the power of meeting people in Facebook groups and on Twitter.
