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
More
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
More
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...

12/21/2018
More
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.

12/19/2018

Let me know what you think of today's show! Jason Support the show.

12/12/2018

Cohn got 3 years for his crimes. But what does it mean for Trump? What exactly was Cohn guilty of?

12/11/2018
More
There's a lot of bad news out here right now. Lost of violence, lots of corruption and a lot of do-gooder politicians who are making it difficult to survive and thrive. But that doesn't mean we should hang it up and resign ourselves to a life of servitude. Today I'll contrast what's happening in France with my own beliefs about life, government and success.

891: LA Debates User Fees to Fix it's Traffic Problem

12/10/2018
More
Of course, they don't call them "user fees" but that's exactly what it is. We've talked about this for a long time, the idea that cities and states could use toll roads or other use-based fees to pay for roads and bridges rather than taxes. Los Angeles is now talking about something similar. Unfortunately, (and predictably) they are doing it wrong. Jason Support the show.
