48. Changing the Game with Pictionary® founder Rob Angel 🎲 | Win the Day™ podcast
Episode 48: Changing the Game with Pictionary® founder Rob Angel “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” – Steve Jobs Rob Angel was in his mid-twenties and working in Seattle as a waiter, earning $2/hour plus tips. With no business experience, plan, or money, Rob created the phenomenally successful and iconic board game Pictionary®. Within four years, and with only two employees, Pictionary became the biggest selling board game in the world. For the next 15 years, Rob shepherded Pictionary to worldwide sales of more than 38 million games in over 60 countries and 45 languages. It had also appeared in blockbuster films like When Harry Met Sally and TV shows like Friends, not to mention the countless licensing deals with brands such as The Simpsons and Austin Powers. After an incredible ride, Rob said goodbye to his baby, selling the phenomenally successful Pictionary to toy giant Mattel. Rob just released Game Changer, which is a Wall Street Journal bestselling book that reveals the dizzying highs and crushing lows of his Pictionary adventure. And if you want a roadmap to success on your own terms, I can’t recommend it highly enough. I'm grateful that Rob was able to join me in person from our Los Angeles studio, and the number of business / life lessons in this interview are off the charts. Rob will share: How he created the world's #1 board game (while earning $2/hour as a waiter); The biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make; How to turn your passion into a profitable business; How he overcame self-doubt and impostor syndrome; How to create a successful business without sacrificing your inner peace; And a whole lot more!

47. The Heart of Humanity with NFL Legend Nick Lowery | Win the Day™ podcast
Episode 47: The Heart of Humanity with NFL Legend Nick Lowery “Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture your heart.” – Native American proverb Nick Lowery is a philanthropist and Hall of Fame athlete, but his entry into the NFL was anything but smooth. Nick was released or rejected 11 times by eight NFL teams before finally given a chance by the Chiefs who, as history proves, made a hell of a return on their investment. Retiring after 18 seasons in the NFL, Nick is widely regarded as the most valuable kicker of all time, achieving records for most field goals in NFL history, most accurate field-goal kicker in NFL history, and all-time leading point scorer for the Chiefs. But Nick is far from the athlete stereotype you might imagine. He attended Harvard University where he graduated with a Masters degree from the Kennedy School of Government. Among his extraordinary list of accomplishments, Nick has: served three US Presidents as an advisor on youth and drug policy in the White House; received the most prestigious humanitarian award an NFL player can receive; and worked tirelessly to equip the next generation with everything they need to thrive. Among his philanthropic endeavors, Nick is founder of Champions for the Homeless, the Nick Lowery Youth Foundation, and has run leadership programs for Native American youth for 20+ years. In recognition of his efforts, Nick has been featured in The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and on David Letterman, and in two feature films. We cover a LOT of ground in this episode. Nick will share: • His secret process to becoming the most accurate kicker in NFL history; • How we can help underserved populations, including Native American communities and the homeless; • The exciting research on how CBD can help restore brain function; • How to dust yourself off from failure; and • A whole lot more! Let’s WIN THE DAY with Nick Lowery. _ 🎞️ YouTube version: https://youtu.be/SzGCq87zZ_4 📖 Blog version: https://jameswhitt.com/the-heart-of-humanity-with-nick-lowery 🎧 Episode webpage: https://jameswhitt.com/47-win-the-day-podcast-with-nick-lowery _ Show links: ⚡ Nick Lowery website: https://nicklowery.com 📷 Nick Lowery Instagram: https://instagram.com/lowerynick 📙 A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle: https://amzn.to/3memr4k  🚀 Think & Grow Rich: The Legacy by James Whittaker: http://amzn.to/2EQH8QD 🗝️ Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill: https://amzn.to/2GkFCCT  🧭 The Rassias Method: https://rassias.dartmouth.edu/method 🎙️ Have a podcast of your own and want to learn how to monetize it?

45. Pain, Passion and Profit with Dr. Steve Sudell 🌱 | Win the Day™ podcast
Episode 45: Pain, Passion and Profit with Dr. Steve Sudell “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Benjamin Franklin We've got an entrepreneurial superstar joining us on the show today! Our guest will reveal his secrets to: Creating products that people love Raising $1+ million through crowdfunding, and Generating multiple 7-figure exits. That's right, he's done a LOT, despite still only being in his 30s.  Dr. Steve Sudell received his doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2009, and in an accomplished career he’s made it his mission to find non-invasive solutions to get people back to doing what they love. In 2015, he co-founded StretchLab, a revolutionary assisted-stretching facility that helps individuals improve their overall flexibility and well-being through stretching. Steve created the full range of stretching protocols that are still in use today, and also trained hundreds of practitioners – known as “flexologists” – in the process. With Steve’s expertise, StretchLab went from one location to more than 200 in less than four years. In 2019, Steve exited the company in a seven-figure deal. After watching his younger sister battle leukemia and suffer from extreme pain, Steve knew there were a lot more people who needed help. In 2017, to help the millions of people who suffer from chronic neck pain, he created the Neck Hammock. It arrived as the most affordable, portable, and effective ‘at home’ neck pain solution on the market. To fund the project, he launched two crowdfunding campaigns simultaneously that raised USD $1.6 million from 20,000+ backers, and landed in the top 1% of all Kickstarter campaigns. Since then, the Neck Hammock has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, The Today Show, Forbes, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop. After grossing more than USD $20 million in sales, Steve had another seven-figure exit in January 2021. We cover a lot of ground in this one! You'll learn how to make your health a priority (no matter how hectic your schedule is), when it's time to exit your passion project, and exactly what it takes to make it in the business world in 2021. And remember, a little inspiration at the right time can completely change the trajectory of someone’s life, so if there’s a friend who needs to check out this interview, share it with them now.

If this is your first time here, we sit down with some of the world’s true legends to help YOU take ownership of your financial, physical and mental health. And our guest today is the perfect intersection of those three areas. Gabby Reece is a fitness icon, entrepreneur, keynote speaker, mum, wife, host of The Gabby Reece Show, and a New York Times bestselling author. She’s been featured on Dr Oz, The Today Show, and the Joe Rogan podcast, and was the first female spokeswoman for Nike. In September 2020, Gabby and her husband — big wave surfer Laird Hamilton — listed their plant-based food company Laird Superfood on the New York Stock Exchange, just five years after they launched it. Gabby and Laird are also the founders of Extreme Performance Training (known as XPT), designed to stimulate growth in ALL aspects of human performance through exposure to a variety of natural elements and environments. Essentially, they kick your ass through breath optimization, functional movement, and recovery techniques like ice baths and hot saunas. Like all of us, Gabby’s journey has had its ups and downs, which we’ll get into — but what I love most about her is her hunger to gain new perspectives, while keeping it real at the same time. In this interview with Gabby, we’re going to talk about: Tips for peak performance in 2021 and beyond; Gabby’s advice for healthy relationships with your children and your spouse; How to unlock your motivation each day; and How you can find peace in an increasingly crazy world.

42. Fight for Every Breath ⚔️ with Marcus Smith | Win the Day™ podcast
Episode 42: Fight for Every Breath with Marcus Smith “The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war.” – Norman Schwarzkopf On this show I like to bring you the real mindset masters, and today we’ve got an absolute superstar, Marcus Smith, who’s been through more wars than most. Marcus is an entrepreneur, an extreme athlete, and a performance coach. Based in Dubai, he’s the founder of InnerFight, which helps everyone – from kids to corporate clients – unlock their peak performance, as well as owner of Smith St Paleo, which provides paleo food offerings to help people make better nutrition decisions. Marcus is fit, and I mean FIT. At age 18, he started playing professional rugby, making it to the 2009 Rugby Sevens World Cup. Since then, he’s completed pretty much anything with “ultra” in its name, including: the Marathon des Sables, a six-day ultramarathon through the Sahara Desert known as “the toughest foot race on Earth”; a 230km (143 mile) self-supported ultramarathon across Kenya; and a footrace on the Auvergne volcanoes in France. In February 2018, while training to set a world record in ultra-cycling, Marcus was hit by a truck, with the impact smashing him into a brick wall. But he stared death right in the face and said, “Not today.” Rather than focus on what he lost, Marcus decided to create a documentary ‘Fight for Every Breath’ where he details his experience and his journey back to full health.  Just nine months after the accident, Marcus completed not one, not two, but 30 MARATHONS … IN 30 DAYS! In this episode, we’re going to talk with Marcus about: The secrets to his extraordinary self-discipline The accident that almost killed him (and how he came to terms with his trauma) The darkest moments of his recovery What you can do for supreme motivation each day; and How to inspire unwavering self-discipline in others.  Strap yourself in.

Episode 39: The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for 2020 “When things change inside you, things change around you.” – Buddha (This will be the last episode for 2020, but if you’re new to the show there’s 30+ other episodes for you to check out on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and wherever you listen to podcasts. For exclusive video content to make 2021 your best year yet, remember to subscribe on YouTube.) Welcome to my 3rd annual holiday gift guide! Each year, I outline the items that have made the biggest impact in my life throughout the year, and I know they’ll do the same for you. This holiday season – rather than squandering money on gifts with little long-term value – consider giving something practical, like a life-changing book that gets the recipient excited about taking ownership of their future. Filling your mind with the knowledge you need is the best way to transcend your circumstances so you can achieve whatever you want in life, regardless of what’s happened in your past. Every book I have read has changed my life in one way or another, so that hunger for learning should be a priority for you too. Without further ado, here are the books that I think would make the best gifts this holiday season, for you, a friend or a loved one. They’re mentioned by category, rather than in any ranking order, so just pick whichever ones intrigue you the most. Until next year, onwards and upwards always. _ 🎞️ YouTube version: https://youtu.be/g_NsxvfTfwQ 📖 Blog version: https://jameswhitt.com/the-ultimate-holiday-gift-guide-for-2020/ _ Show links: 🤺 Millennial Samurai by George Chanos: https://millennialsamurai.com 🌞 Blue Sky Kingdom by Bruce Kirkby: https://amzn.to/2Hkig79  🚧 The Road to Success by Brandon T.

37. The Road to Resilience with Dr Sonja Stribling | Win the Day podcast
Episode 37: The Road to Resilience with Dr Sonja Stribling “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision." - Helen Keller Before we begin, I want to make something very clear: how you respond to adversity when it inevitably strikes is what separates ordinary people from extraordinary achievers. That’s right, none of us are immune to adversity – and, in fact, the most successful people use the adversity they’ve faced as fuel to move forward stronger and more resilient than ever before. Today we sit down with Dr Sonja Stribling who has faced enormous adversity her entire life. She was born into a family as the youngest of 12 children, to parents who only had a second-grade education. At age 15, she gave birth to her first child. And just two years later, at 17 years old, she was raped and left for dead. Sonja went on to college, but just prior to graduating, she joined the US Army for what would become a 21-year career, including combat tours in war-torn countries like Iraq and reaching the rank of Major. While in the military, her 18-year marriage fell apart, and she returned to civilian life without any idea of what to do next. Considering taking her own life, Sonja had an epiphany that there was more to her story than what had been written. Since that fateful moment, she has become an internationally renowned speaker, author, television presenter, and business coach, as well as recipient of the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award. In this wide-ranging interview, we talk about: The heartbreaking moments from her adolescence What war taught her about humanity How divorce saved her life Why she’s so passionate about using financial freedom to empower women The activism we’ve seen in 2020; and How poor communities can escape the poverty mindset. She holds nothing back and I know you’re going to love it. Let’s win the day with Dr Sonja Stribling. _ YouTube version: https://youtu.be/mFH4K8pIj50 Blog version: https://jameswhitt.com/the-road-to-resilience-with-dr-sonja-stribling _ Show links: 📷 Sonja Stribling on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/iamdrsonja ⚡ Sonja Stribling website: https://drsonja.com 📙 The Divorce That Saved My Life: 12 Principles To Overcoming A Broken Relationship by Dr Sonja Stribling https://amzn.to/3n27Ub1 🔥 Andrew Carnegie’s Mental Dynamite by Napoleon Hill and James Whittaker: https://amzn.to/322dNxF _ Connect with James: IG: @jameswhitt  | Web: https://jameswhitt.com  _ Want to support the show?

36. Lose Yourself to Find Yourself with Bruce Kirkby | Win the Day podcast
Episode 36: Lose Yourself to Find Yourself with Bruce Kirkby “My biggest fear is that when I die the person I am meets the person I could have become.” – Author Unknown Our guest today is a truly extraordinary individual and one of the world’s leading wilderness experts.  Bruce Kirkby grew up in Toronto as an engineering physicist by trade, but he had that itch that there was more to life than simply going through the same boring motions each day.  Despite almost failing English in high school, Bruce became a wilderness writer and adventure photographer, and today he’s visited 80+ countries and is renowned for connecting wild places with contemporary issues.  Some of his most notable accomplishments include the first modern crossing of Arabia’s Empty Quarter by camel, a descent of Ethiopia’s Blue Nile Gorge by raft, a sea kayak traverse of Borneo’s northern coast, and a coast-to-coast Icelandic trek. Bruce is the author of three bestselling books, winner of multiple National Magazine Awards, and has been featured in The New York Times. His TV show Big Crazy Family Adventure was released by the Travel Channel in 2015 and followed Bruce’s journey with his wife and two young children from their home in Canada to India with one condition – the only mode of transportation they couldn’t use was airplanes. In this interview, we'll look at: The moment when Bruce realized the traditional path wasn’t for him When he was taken hostage at gunpoint in Ethiopia What it was like traveling with his young family to Mt Everest and the Great Wall of China Lessons from living in a Buddhist Monastery in Tibet How to escape the modern grind and start enjoying life, and Parenting tips for 2020 and beyond. Perhaps the best lesson from this interview is how to reconnect with what it means to be human. Bruce has an incredible energy, some amazing stories, and I know you’re going to love this episode! _ YouTube version: https://youtu.be/7gheyelj70M Blog version: https://jameswhitt.com/newsletters/ _ Show links: 📷 Bruce Kirkby on Instagram https://instagram.com/brucekirkby  ⚡ Bruce Kirkby website http://brucekirkby.com 🌎 Big Crazy Family Adventure on the Travel Channel https://www.travelchannel.com/shows/big-crazy-family-adventure/articles/big-crazy-family-adventure 📚 Bruce’s brand-new book Blue Sky Kingdom: An Epic Family Journey to the Heart of the Himalaya https://amzn.to/2Hkig79 💚Blue Sky Kingdom trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvTcaNRWJcs&authuser=1  🎙️ We Are Podcast: Learn how to make money from your podcast https://wearepodcast.com/events _  Connect with James: IG: @jameswhitt  | Web: https://jameswhitt.com  _  Want to support the show?  Hit ‘Subscribe’ and leave a 5-star rating to help others find it.

Episode 33: Reprogramming Your Brain with John Assaraf “Do more of what you love, less of what you tolerate, and none of what you hate.” – John Assaraf Today, we’ve got one of the leading mindset and behavior experts on the planet, John Assaraf. You probably know John from the 2006 film ‘The Secret’. Since then, John has built a billion-dollar company, numerous multimillion-dollar companies, written two New York Times bestselling books, and been featured in eight movies, including 'The Secret' and 'Quest for Success' alongside Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama.  But his journey to success was anything but smooth. Growing up with a fixed mindset, John was expecting to follow a similar path to his father who lived paycheck to paycheck as a taxi driver with a bad gambling habit. John left high school after Grade 10 and eventually found work in a warehouse, but he was hanging out with some unsavory people which left him with two career horizons: jail or the morgue.  It was only at 19 years old, through the influence of a successful businessman, that John began taking ownership of his life for the first time. This mentor asked John three simple but profound questions that changed his trajectory forever. And when his mind changed, his world did too. Today, he is founder and CEO of NeuroGym, a company dedicated to using the most advanced brain training methods to help individuals unleash their fullest potential and maximize their results. In this interview, we talk about how you can reprogram your brain for massive success. We’ll go through: The three simple but profound questions that changed John's life forever; The debilitating health condition in his early 20’s that sparked his life’s work; John’s daily routine for peak performance; What to do with negative people in your life (or people who refuse to change);  How you can achieve ANY goal; And so much more.

32. From Solitary to Service with Coss Marte (How a drug dealer earning $5M/year built a fitness empire from his prison cell) | Win the Day podcast
Episode 32: From Solitary to Service with Coss Marte “Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill At 11 years old, Coss Marte began using drugs. At 13, he was selling crack on the streets to make ends meet. With a lack of positive role models, and an environment riddled with crime, there were few legitimate avenues available to him. Yet, despite regularly witnessing extreme acts of violence, Coss survived as he inched his way up the food chain. At 19, he found himself at the helm of one of the largest drug delivery services in New York City. Through a team of more than two dozen couriers, dispatchers and street soldiers, Coss distributed vast quantities of cocaine and marijuana to all segments of society – from public housing residents to cops, judges and doctors, but especially Wall Street executives who had the salaries to match their insatiable appetite for his product. At its peak, the business was earning more than $5 million a year. Coss’ drug venture was so successful that he needed eight mobile phones just to store the sheer number of customer contacts. Eventually, the law caught up with him, and 23-year-old Coss was sentenced to prison and forced to turnover all proceeds from his criminal enterprise. It was the latest and most severe of a string of arrests that had seen him incarcerated 10 times since he first began dealing. While in prison, a series of events forced Coss to take ownership of his life, and he began his road to redemption – only this time as a fitness entrepreneur. Since being released, Coss has trained 50,000+ people from around the world. He’s an author, a TEDx speaker and recently launched a crowdfund for a nonprofit that helps equip formerly incarcerated people with the skills to succeed in the digital world so they don’t need to return to a life of crime. In this interview, we talk about: What it was like selling crack on the streets of New York City during its darkest days How he built a drug empire as a 19-year-old earning $5M a year How to survive in one of the toughest prisons in the country The one book that finally led to him taking ownership of his life How he created a fitness empire from solitary confinement And a whole lot more.

Episode 31: Becoming Unstoppable with Kerwin Rae “Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda Kerwin Rae is one of the world's foremost business growth experts. In an extraordinary career, he’s helped 100,000 businesses in 150+ different industries, in more than a dozen countries, to achieve better results.   But Kerwin certainly had to attend the school of hard knocks to get where he is today. At 7 years old, he was diagnosed with dyslexia, ADHD, and other learning difficulties. At 15, he had the first of seven near-death experiences. And at 19, he became addicted to drugs.  It looked like the stars simply wouldn’t align for his life, and he hadn’t even read a book in full until he was 23 – which is coincidentally the same year he started his first business.  Then, a series of transformational moments occurred that made Kerwin realize he had FAR more potential than he ever thought possible. At that point, he realized that his rollercoaster journey – through difficult lessons and significant hardships – had actually equipped him with an unparalleled ability to help others succeed. And he’s been kicking massive goals ever since.  In this episode, we talk about: The most transformational moments that took him from believing he was ‘stupid’ to feeling superhuman. How to meditate in a 200km/h skydiving freefall. The exact methods he uses to improve his own performance each day. How he read the tea leaves for the pandemic and was able to use it to his advantage. The parenting style he has with his six-year-old son, Noah, and the relationship with his ex-wife. How to balance hunger for future achievements with happiness in the present. And a whole lot more!

Episode 29: How to Stress Less and Accomplish More with Emily Fletcher — The World Leader in Meditation for High Performance “What you seek is seeking you.” – Rumi Wherever you are in the world, there’s a strong chance that you’ve been feeling a great deal of stress lately. And 2020 certainly seems like a year of transition for all of us. So how bad is it? Well, Harvard suggests that up to 80% of doctor’s visits are caused by stress, and that was before all of this hit. This made it the perfect time to have Emily Fletcher, who is regarded as the leading expert in meditation for high performance, on the Win the Day podcast. What Emily teaches is extremely practical and eliminates the shortfalls that I’ve personally experienced from other types of meditation. Every session also ties in directly to goal-setting and manifestation, which is one of the attributes I love most about it. But don’t just take my word for it! Emily has worked with Navy SEALs, NBA players, Academy Award winners, and globally recognized CEOs. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Today Show, and Vogue magazine, and she’s spoken at Google, Viacom, and Harvard Business School. Today, The Ziva Technique founder has taught 20,000+ students around the world how to perform at their best. Emily’s new book ‘Stress Less, Accomplish More’ is also a wonderful introduction to the challenges we face today and a practical guide to living at your best – in all areas of your life.

Episode 28: How to Elevate Your Life with Jessica Cox — The World's First Armless Pilot “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” — Eleanor Roosevelt That Eleanor Roosevelt quote certainly sets the tone for today’s guest: the incredible Jessica Cox. Jessica was born without arms, and while there were many doubts as to whether Jessica would be able to live a “normal” life, her achievements since have been anything but normal. Jessica has made it her mission to prove the doubters and naysayers wrong. She can do all the everyday things that might seem impossible for someone in her situation, such as driving a car, putting in contact lenses, and playing the piano — and she's even a fourth-degree black belt in taekwondo. But her most famous accomplishment occurred in 2008 when she was recognized by Guinness World Records for gaining her pilot’s license and becoming the first person to fly an airplane using only her feet. Today, Jessica's unconventional views on how to achieve the impossible have earned her invitations to speak at companies like Boeing, NASA, IBM, and even the US Air Force. She is also the subject of the award-winning documentary Right Footed that aired on National Geographic in 80+ countries. Jessica teaches that only when we’re true to ourselves are we able to face challenges head on and experience the extraordinary growth that comes with it.

27. How to Thrive in an Uncertain Future – An Interview with George Chanos | Win the Day
Episode 27: How to Thrive in an Uncertain Future – An Interview with George Chanos “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy You’re going to LOVE this episode!  Today, we interview George J. Chanos who is extremely eloquent, infectiously passionate, and has a lifetime of real-world business experience, as well as perspectives from high levels of public office.  George served as Attorney General of Nevada, where he oversaw the entire state’s justice department. He has even argued, successfully might I add, in front of the United States Supreme Court.   Since leaving office, he has established a career as an accomplished businessman (including Chairman of one of the fastest growing franchises in the country). His two biggest passions are, first, learning about the future and, second, interpreting that future to help younger generations thrive in what will be an era of unprecedented transformation.   In many ways, the future is scary as hell. George tells of the technological tsunami that will revolutionize the world in the next 30 years, and that we’re already knee-deep in it without even knowing. In his latest book 'Millennial Samurai', George equips younger generations with the concepts, blueprints, and resources to find opportunity and gain a competitive edge.   Given the uncertainty we’re facing right now with COVID-19, I thought this was great timing to have him on the show. In this wide-ranging interview, we cover: ✔️ Politics ✔️ Quarantine (and Covid-19) ✔️ Artificial intelligence ✔️ How automation is disrupting industries ✔️ Incredible technology that is transforming the world ✔️ And a LOT more!  George also shares the one thing that he believes is the biggest existential thread for the entire world – and, no, it’s not climate change or rogue viruses like COVID-19. In addition, he helps us understand what’s going on politically to make sense of how the power shifts will play out.  If you want a competitive edge for your business and the future, this episode is a must listen.    __   BLOG version of this episode: https://jameswhitt.com/newsletters/  PODCAST version of this episode: https://anchor.fm/james-whittaker/  Hit 'Subscribe' and get access to episodes as soon as they're released!  __  Resources/links mentioned:  ⚔️ Millennial Samurai: A Mindset for the 21st Century http://millennialsamurai.com/  📚 Seize Your Destiny https://www.amazon.com/Seize-Your-Destiny-Successful-Meaningful-ebook-dp-B01D6DZKTS/dp/B01D6DZKTS/  🎞️ The Neuroanatomical Transformation of the Teenage Brain: Jill Bolte Taylor https://youtu.be/PzT_SBl31-s  🌐 George J.

The vision pulls you.” – Steve Jobs I'm REALLY excited for you to hear this one! Eleven years ago, Michael Fox started the world’s first custom women’s shoe company Shoes of Prey that raised USD $25 million and partnered with leading companies like Nordstrom.

In a world that's changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” — Mark Zuckerberg In this episode we’re going to talk about something that sounds negative but is actually the key to unlock pretty much EVERYTHING you want in life.  We share lessons from Mark Zuckerberg (the world's youngest self-made billionaire) and Jeff Bezos (arguably the world's most renowned CEO) to help you reframe risk and failure in your own life. We also explore how anything we do in our pursuit of growth and self-mastery carries the risk of failure in the short-term, but it should not be tainted with the same brush of what are generally just ‘bad decisions.'
