103: How to Handle Down Days with Daniel Gefen


I was having a down day today and then my guest cancelled on me last minute.

So. I decided to use this as an opportunity to share with you how I handle having a down day.

You probably only see all the ‘good stuff’ in my life. You see me as the energetic happy go lucky productive entrepreneur.

But that’s because you only see a snapshot of my life. I only show you the ‘good bits’.

In this solo episode I decided to share some of my ‘not so good bits’ like …

How I got bullied in high school

How I recorded my first episode 17 times

How I differentiate the voices in my head

How I deal with having down days

Life is full of ups and downs and it’s all about gratefully embracing our highs and gracefully accepting our downs

Enjoy the show

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.  

Jeff Hoffman is a serial entrepreneur, international speaker, published author, Hollywood film producer, Grammy Award-winning jazz album artist, philanthropist and one of only 2,000 Billionaires in the entire world.
