102: The 7 Ingredients of Becoming a Billionaire with Jeff Hoffman

102: The 7 Ingredients of Becoming a Billionaire with Jeff Hoffman

Today I am super excited to have my first Billionaire guest on my show.

The truth is that while I was preparing for this interview I asked myself the following question …what separates a Billionaire from a Millionaire?

In fact once i’m asking that question I ask myself ‘What separates a Millionaire from someone struggling to pay the rent?’

Is it luck? Is it connections? Is it skill? Is it IQ? Is it raw determination and passion or is it something else?

Well… who better to ask than someone who has made the journey to the top.
