919: Why We Act Against Our Best Interest

2/15/2019
More
It's a proven fact that that we often act against our best interest. This seems to fly in the face of everything we think we know about humans being self-interested. But does it? Today on the show we walk through an example using Amazon and NY State. Enjoy! Jason Support the show.

917: Are We Asking Cops To Do Too Much?

2/11/2019
More
Let me ask you a question... When you see a cop on the road is your gut reaction "Oh thank God!" or is it "#($%% am I doing anything wrong?" I get the feeling most of you react the second way. That's what I want to discuss today. What if we asked less of police? What if we stopped enforcing victimless crimes? Love to hear your thoughts. Jason Support the show.

915: Is it Time to Clan Up?

2/6/2019
More
Yesterday I alluded to the subject we'll be discussing today. What happens when our society starts assembling itself in warring factions? What does our world look like when we start playing out a real-life version of Gangs of New York? Matt and I both have slightly different takes on the issue so it's going to be cool to see whose opinion carries the day. Bottom line: our job is to promote our values and live what we preach. Enjoy the show, Jason Support the show.

914: The Washington Post and the Dark Side of Influence

2/4/2019
More
Well, the Super Bowl was a huge letdown and most of the commercials weren't worth talking about either. But there were a couple of moments worth mentioning. The biggest one for me was the Washington Post commercial that ends with the tagline "Democracy dies in darkness." From an influence perspective, this ad was brilliant. I want to break it down for you and talk a little about how easy it is to be influenced when you don't understand what's happening to you. Jason Support the show.

913: I'm Gonna Make Michael Moore Look Like a Chump

2/1/2019
More
Starbucks founder Howard Schultz has suggested he might run for the presidency as an independent. Moore has been quick to go on the attack rejecting Schultz's claims that he is a self-made billionaire. Moore's entire argument is without merit and I intend to prove it on today's show. Stand by for a verbal lashing, Mr. Moore. Jason Support the show.

912: You Don't Need To Go Looking For a Fight; It's Gonna Find You

1/30/2019
More
I was on the road headed to the studio today and I realized something. We are always fighting. Fighting on the way up and then fighting to stay there. You don't need to go looking for the fight because it's going to find you. What you need to do is be ready for it, embrace it, and learn to love it; because ultimately both your success and your sanity depend on it. Support the show.

911: Monday Morning Motivation

1/28/2019
More
I watched a movie over the weekend called American Animals. It was a decent movie about a bunch of college kids who decide to become art thieves. As you can imagine it didn't go well. In the film, one of the characters reflects on the many chances he had to back out or make a different choice, but he never did. Many of us act the same way in our lives. We know we're on the wrong path, but instead of making the hard choice, we resign to continue on a path that will never take us where we...

910: How to Spot a Liar

1/25/2019
More
It's shocking to me just how blinded we can be to the manipulation around us. Politicians are the worst. But the truth is, we are constantly surrounded by people trying to influence us. We do it every day too. Our entire day is spent trying to convince our family, prospects, and co-workers to listen and agree with our way of thinking. There's nothing wrong with that... unless we're being unethical. And that's what I want to talk to you about today. I want to teach you how to spot a liar,...

909: What Venezuela Can Teach Us About The Power of Personal Wealth

1/23/2019
More
Venezuela is in the final throes of collapse. President Maduro has been asked to step down and an interim president has been declared. The country has imploded. The people are dying of starvation and lack of basic medical care. Black markets thrive and anyone who could leave already has. Only the poor and helpless remain. What can we learn from this? We can spend time talking about the dangers of socialism but ultimately I want to talk about the power of personal wealth. Money is freedom...

908: If You're a Loser, This Episode Will Just Make You Angry

I need to make this very clear before you listen today. What we're going to cover in this episode will make total sense to the winners who listen to this show and will royally piss off the losers. But if you're someone who's in a rut and trying to dig yourself out, I want to give you a framework that will help you get your mojo back. Enjoy! Jason Support the show.

907: Forbes Says You Can Grow An Economy By Printing Money

1/18/2019
More
I'm not joking. Forbes.com actually printed an article from some egghead at Cornell University that claimed the way to grow our economy was by printing money and pumping it into untested green energy products. The arguments in his seven-page piece range from misrepresentations to outright lies and Matt and I had a great time making him look stupid. My hope is that you also learn a little about how our economy works and what is needed to bring more green energy to market. Have a great...

906: Nothing is Permanent...and that's a Good Thing

1/16/2019
More
It doesn't matter if you're on top of the mountain or down in the gutter, nothing is permanent. But I think that's a good thing. What it means is you don't have to stay where you are and just because someone has made it to the top doesn't mean he's going to stay there. You can have any kind of life you want but it's up to you to make it a reality. Today we'll talk about how you do it. A motivational episode today, Jason Support the show.

905: A Discussion on Teachers, Unions, Collective Bargaining, and Value

1/14/2019
More
Los Angeles teachers are striking for the first time in 30 years, pitting the teachers' union against the local government. There are no good guys in this situation, but I'm sure it'll come as a surprise to many of you that I actually think the government could be "right" in this instance. After starting out talking about the neurological impact of allowing negativity into your life, Matt and I delved into the world of education, and the conversation turned to artificial intelligence,...

904: What Weed Can Teach Us about Human Decision Making

1/11/2019
More
It's funny how different incentives can affect our decisions. Humans are an irrational group. We often don't make the same decision twice. The question is why? That's what I want to talk about today. Matt and I do a deep dive on how supply, demand and outside influences affect things like the demand for oil and the price of weed. Great show! Don't forget to share! Jason Support the show.

903: Know Your Downside

1/9/2019
More
I started this show intending on discussing cheap oil and New York's decision to start a Medicare for all program. We never got to either of those subjects. What we did discuss in some detail was the failure of Americans to anticipate downside risk in their lives and plan accordingly. It's an important conversation for anyone assuming the good times will always get better. I'll be doing my live Q&A session next week for all our members. If you'd like to join it's just five bucks!...

902: Constance Schwartz-Morini from SMAC Entertainment Talks Snoop Dogg, Brand Building and Risk Taking

1/7/2019

I was so excited to when I found out Constance had agreed to come on the show and she didn't disappoint. She has been crushing it in the media a branding business for close to two decades and she's a shining example of what one can accomplish when you're willing to take risks and constantly stretch the limits of your abilities. If you're looking for inspiration to get off your butt, get that promotion or launch out on your own then this is going to be an inspirational...

901: Excellence is Lonely

1/4/2019

A lot of people are talking about the new year, goal setting and achieving the most out of the year. I've seen half a dozen people offering their formula for getting what you want out of 2019 but the reality is, most people won't do much this year. So I wanted to kick off the first show of 2019 with a discussion of what it takes to be excellent. What does being part of the 1% look like and what does it cost? It's both an inspirational episode and a hardcore reality check on what success...

900: Want to Skip the Next Recession? Just Refuse to Participate

12/21/2018

If you listen to the news yesterday you get the impression the world is imploding. If you didn't it probably felt a lot like your typical Thursday. When the rest of the world is panicking it's best you don't participate. That goes for recessions too. There is nothing written that says you have to be part of the mania. Today we'll discuss a better way to view the world and the opportunities others miss. Jason Support the show.
