Get Anyone to do Anything for You with Dr. Ben Hardy

Mike Koenigs hates “How Pies” (if you’re from Minnesota like him, you’ll get this joke right away). If you grew up in the country like him, cow pies aren’t fun to step in.

What if you could solve ANY problem you’ve ever had by asking a NEW question? Not “How do I do this?” But “Who can do this FOR me?” And...


Donkey Smuggling and How To Turn Your Life Into A Movie

What kind of donkeys are you smuggling? Confused?? 🤣 Mike was too when Gay asked him the same question.

Week after week, for 30 years, the same man with the same donkey caravan and the inspector could never find anything. When it came time for the inspector...
