    Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss -Episode 9- David Vanderveen (Energy Drink CEO/Aaron Rodgers Partner)

    The ninth episode of the Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss podcast is with David Vanderveen.


     


    David is the Founder and former CEO of XS, a global energy brand who generated over $2 Billion in revenue. He’s also a surfer, true life-liver, podcast host and a partner of Aaron Rodgers (yes the NFL Quarterback) via RX3 Ventures amongst other titles and achievements.


     


    We talked about politics, to steal or not to steal Red Bull's customers, being an adventurous person, going bankrupt in your 20s, freediving, psychedelics, different mindsets for learning and creating a growth mindset, how judgements are an act of violence, memory, his morning routine, how to make a marriage last and oh-so-much more.


     


     


    NOTE ABOUT WHEN THIS WAS FILMED:


     


    This was filmed on November 21, 2019. Simply put, it wasn’t released until now in 2020 because I (Ben) have been waiting for a time where I could start filming and releasing podcasts consistently. I didn’t want to release podcasts I filmed until I was in the position to be consistent.


     


    I filmed the first 11 podcasts and then got super busy with work. Since the podcast doesn’t make me money I had to focus on what pays the bills. However, once I built my main business (Fresh Right Hand - marketing company) up enough to the point where I know now I can be consistent with the podcast (I have enough team to help take care of tasks to help keep growing biz) I’m beginning to launch the podcast. My goal is to release 1+ podcast per week consistently for a long time to come. We’ll see what happens, but that’s the goal.

    Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss - Episode 8 - Cliff Savage (Founder of 'Jerk' Dance/Rapper)

    Cliff Savage is the eighth guest on the Trying to Be Wise with B Weiss podcast. What a cool name, right? That’s his real name.


     


    More than this guy’s name though…


     


    We talked about him hitting a million streams, his viral hit 'Uber', how he taught himself how to engineer/produce/record, making sure to keep your energy positive, what keeps him focused/motivated and more. Oh and he was one of the founders of the ‘Jerk’ dance movement!


     


    You can find Cliff on IG @therealcliffsavage and check him out on iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify, Twitch and more.


     


    NOTE ABOUT QUALITY (from Ben): The audio did not record as nicely as I’d like. I’m hopeful the quality will get especially better consistently after the first few dozen podcasts, realistically.

    Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss - Episode 6 - Ryan Fuller (Supreme Skateboard King/Entrepreneur/World Record Holder)

    Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss - Episode 6 - Ryan Fuller (Supreme Skateboard King/Entrepreneur/World Record Holder)

    Good thing “Full” is in his name, because Ryan Fuller (IG: @ryfuller) sure lives a full life. Meet the sixth guest on the Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss podcast


     


    When you look at him, you may notice his gold teeth. There’s much more to Ryan than meets the eye.


     


    He’s the kind of guy just about anyone could get along with. He also holds the world record for highest amount a skateboard set has ever been sold for (hint: over $800k).


     


    While Ryan has paved his way with the brand Supreme, he’s had other successes as well. Currently, he’s working on growing his PPE business and his app, Trail Roulette. If you hike or mountain bike, Trail Roulette is a great way to map out your trail utilizing Augmented Reality.


     


    Our conversation ranged from living life to running a weed shop to being busted with over $90k in cash to having a successful Supreme store to making more money than anyone else in the world from a skateboard set to his near death experience and more.

    Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss - Episode 4 - Cory Gunz (Rapper/Dad/Movie Buff/Signed to Lil' Wayne)

    Trying To Be Wise with B Weiss - Episode 4 - Cory Gunz (Rapper/Dad/Movie Buff/Signed to Lil' Wayne)

    Cory Gunz (IG: @corygunz174) … if you’re a real rap fan, you know him and are probably a fan. If you’re someone who likes rap, but just knows mainstream you may not know him but still have probably heard him. 6 foot 7 foot 8 foot bunch.
     


    Whether you already know who Cory is or have heard his song with Lil’ Wayne titled ‘6 foot 7 foot’ or neither, this podcast should shed more light and insight into his world. Think it will provide you with value too if you’re a dream chaser. 


    He’s much more than a rapper whose signed to Lil’ Wayne. He’s a father, friend, dream chaser, good dude and more.


    As for Cory’s rap career… he’s racked up millions of views online even before being signed to Lil’ Wayne and was (and is) well respected by those who appreciate lyricism. Jay Z and several other big names tried signing Cory before Cory decided to go with Lil Wayne’s Young Money.


    We talked about everything from the journey to signing to Lil’ Wayne to recording process to sports to being a dad to his MTV show to politics to girlfriends to why he doesn’t release a lot of music and more.


    Cory and I (Ben) met in Arizona in 2008, became friends and I helped book his concerts. More about that in the podcast too.



    NOTE ABOUT QUALITY (from Ben): 
    The audio did not record as nicely as I’d like. While this could partially be blamed on me traveling with equipment and being out of my “studio” it’s more so due to me being new to this world and apparently not knowing how to set up the audio as well as I should. Also, had some issues with the lighting going in and out a few times in the room we were in. Thanks for your understanding. I’m hopeful the quality will get especially better consistently after the first few dozen podcasts, realistically. And that may include additional camera angles as well.

    Thanks again to Cory for sitting down to take some time to chat and open up publicly. And thanks to my boys Kal and Max (podcasts #1 and #2) for helping move equipment and set up behind the scenes. Note: any quality issue is my (Ben’s) fault. Kal and Max were just helping me move stuff around and put pieces together because they’re good friends of mine. :)
