Become the Chess Player

2/21/2020
Don't settle for being a pawn. If you've played chess before, then you'll know there's several different pieces in the game. You have the queen and king, obviously the most important pieces, and then on the other side of the spectrum, you have the pawns. Pawns can't do a lot. They have limited movement, and a lot of them get knocked over pretty early. There's always the chance they could win the game, but that chance is pretty low. When it comes to investing your money, it's easy to be a...

Build Your Health to Build Your Wealth with Dr. Mark Hyman

2/17/2020
Wealth without health isn't wealth at all. Let's say you're the richest person in the world. You have anything and everything you could ever want. You've started companies, written books, gone on tours—you name it. But your body isn't in the best shape. You've put it second to your career goals. And now, it's starting to show. Your health is a different kind of wealth. Taking care of your finances is important, but so is taking care of your body. If you neglect your body, your body will...

Everyone Is Important

2/14/2020
“Remember: everyone is important.” Can you imagine being in charge of 40,000 employees? How about running operations at Disney World? Or traveling the world as a renowned public speaker AFTER you retire? Today’s guest on The School of Greatness has done all of these and he’s not stopping anytime soon. Lee Cockerell is a powerhouse of energy, wisdom, and service and it was my privilege to interview him on this episode. Lee has not only led thousands at companies like Disney, but he has...

The Unfiltered Guide to Starting a Successful Podcast

2/12/2020
So, you want to start a podcast? Well...it's definitely easier said than done. Entrepreneur and podcaster Chris Harder invited me to a special Q&A at his Mastermind where I answered some questions about podcasting. Honestly, I get this question a lot, “What’s your advice on starting a podcast?” ...And I tell most people...they shouldn’t. With more and more people starting podcasts everyday, it will take so much work to stand out in the crowd. You can have the right intentions, but if you...

2/10/2020
Don't let anyone stop you from becoming your best self. For this episode of The School of Greatness, I wanted to revisit the wisdom of some amazing women from our Summit of Greatness conference in 2017. These women are so empowering, and their words have stayed with me for these past few years. Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker on the planet with a 7 figure speaking business. She is the author of the international best seller The 5 Second Rule, and she now she has a daytime...

Clear Your Headspace

2/7/2020
“Accountability is a huge thing with changing lifestyle practices.” I interviewed my friend Rich Roll years ago about the incredible lifestyle and health transformation he went through in his 40s. I pulled out a clip from our conversation where we cover the why behind his meditation practice and how it has transformed his productivity. I have a ton of respect for Rich and the way he lives his life and pursues his mission. I always learn a lot from talking to him (not just about food and...

The Wim Hof Experience: Mindset Training, Power Breathing and Brotherhood

2/3/2020
“The breath is the carrier of consciousness.” If anyone has mastered their mind, it's extreme athlete Wim Hof. Wim Hof got his nickname “The Iceman” by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure. His feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle on his bare feet, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.

“Exercise allows you to diversify your identity.” Tim Ferriss is a stand out entrepreneur, author, consultant, athlete, bio-hacker, and life-hacker. If you haven’t heard of him yet, who knows where you’ve been. But in this past episode of the show, I wanted to learn some things about Tim that I and most people don’t know.

Kobe Bryant on Life, Love and Legacy

1/29/2020
“If you’re going to have a story, have a big story.” - Joseph Campbell I was heartbroken to hear the news of the fatal helicopter crash that caused the death of legendary Kobe Bryant, along with his oldest daughter Gigi and seven others. Kobe inspired me for years, and I know he inspired so many other people across the world. My heart goes out to his family and the families of those involved with the crash. There are no words to express my sadness. When I interviewed Kobe in 2018, I asked...

Put People First

Leaders value their people. Dale Partridge is an incredibly successful serial entrepreneur who has not only made several fortunes, but has spoken on stages like Facebook HQ, created a massive social media following, and is a well-known author. But what I’ve learned from Dale about business, relationships, leadership, and life is beyond any of that. Sometimes you need to look far outside your circle to get insight on how to reach the next level. I was in this position a few years ago. I...

Grant Cardone: Overcome Insecurities and Build Your Billion Dollar Brand

1/22/2020
Even the most successful people are insecure. There is one guest I keep having on the podcast who is unlike any other. He always says exactly what he thinks. He talks about money in a real, relatable way. And when he comes on the show, he shows his soft side and cries. Yes, I'm talking about my good friend, Grant Cardone. Grant was in town a couple of weeks ago and stopped by to record an episode with me. Since this is becoming a yearly tradition, we covered a lot of what he has learned...

Live a Longer Life and Reverse Aging with Dr. David Sinclair

1/20/2020
Aging is a disease. Everyone gets old. But did you ever think of the symptoms of aging as a disease that can be cured? I'd heard about Dr. David Sinclair and his ground-breaking longevity research, and I knew he would be a fascinating person to interview about this idea. We ended up going really deep into the science of why we age, how to reverse it, and what is actually in our control. David told stories he'd never shared before, and I kept asking questions because I was so interested...

Entrepreneurs need vision. If you could interview 200 of the top entrepreneurs in the country, do you think you’d find some similarities? Amy Wilkinson guessed that she would. And she did. Over 5 years of research later, she wrote a book that examines the top 6 traits that very successful entrepreneurs share. Amy is a brilliant woman who has worked at the White House and co-founded a company in Silicon Valley (as well as taught at Ivy League universities). In our conversation, we...

Master the Art of Negotiating in Business and Life with Former FBI Agent Chris Voss

There's a way to always get what you want. And it doesn't mean you need to be a tyrant. The art of negotiating is what each of us can learn in order to consistently and confidently get people on our side. To learn this art, I brought back a super popular guest from a few years ago, former FBI negotiator Chris Voss. Since our first interview, he has only grown in popularity, and I knew he'd have new insights about how to use the art of negotiation in business and life. Chris is not just a...

Rob Dyrdek: From Small Town Skateboarder to Media Mogul Empire

I KNOW I ALWAYS SAY I'M EXCITED ABOUT EACH EPISODE OF THE SCHOOL OF GREATNESS. But I’m REALLY excited about this episode. And not just because the guest is another Ohio boy! (But I wore one of my best Ohio shirts and hats when he came by the studio.) You probably already know him from his multiple hit shows on MTV. Or from his long list of world records in skateboarding. Or for his incredible branding with labels like DC shoes. Even if you’ve somehow never heard of Rob Dyrdek, you’re in...

Aim for Wonder Over Success

“I didn’t ask for success, I asked for wonder.” - Abraham Joshua Heschel We talk a lot about building businesses, physical health, and a champion’s mindset on The School of Greatness. What we don’t talk about as often is the part of greatness that is harder to define and explain: spirituality. But that’s not because it’s not important. I had never heard of today’s guest until a friend told me I had to get him on the show. And once I learned about him, I agreed. Rob Bell is an author,...

Brene Brown: Create True Belonging and Heal the World

THIS ONE IS WORTH A REPEAT. Yes, one of the MOST requested guests on the show (since I launched it), has been this incredible woman. She has one of the most watched TED talks of all time. She is a three-time #1 NYT bestselling author (and soon to be four). She has changed the face of emotional intelligence, relationships, and self-acceptance for millions of people. But her area of expertise is one that not many people are willing to talk about — shame and vulnerability. I’m talking about...
