In today’s episode, we’re trying something different!

 

Usually, y’all know I have one guest and I ask them a whole bunch of questions. 

 

BUT today, I have THREE guests. And I asked each of them to give me the advice they wish they could tell their 20-year-old self.

 

In today’s episode, you’ll hear from:

 

- Bing Gordon: Former chief creative officer of the video game company Electronic Arts 

- Paul Orfalea: Founder of Kinkos… which sold for over $2.6 BILLION dollars!!

- And Bob Metcalfe: Who invented the ethernet cable… which was the original internet.

 

ALL of these guys have two things in common: They’re AT LEAST 70-years-old and they’re all multi-millionaires… or billionaires!

 

Who better to get advice from in your 20s!?



If you’ve ever wanted to learn about what 70 year-olds would tell their 20-year-old selves, you’ll love this episode.

 

In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:

- What Bing Gordon DIDN’T do in his 20s that would have made his life a whole lot easier

- The advice Paul Orfalea’s mom gave him when HE was in his 20s

- And the ONE skill Bob Metcalfe wishes he learned sooner… that you can learn NOW.

 

Enjoy those 3 things… plus a bunch more ear nuggets along the way.

In today’s episode, I talk to Andrew Viterbi, co-founder of Qualcomm and creator of the Viterbi algorithm.

When Andrew was just 4 years old, he came to the US as a refugee from Italy. By 10 years old, he already had a passion for math and technology and wanted to study at MIT university (spoiler alert… he did!).

Now, Andrew is in his 80s!!!! And he’s known for being the co-founder of Qualcomm — a $120 BILLION dollar company!!! And he also invented the Viterbi algorithm. 

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about how to invent an algorithm and make your own luck, you’ll love this episode.

In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:

- How money changed Andrew’s life coming from nothing to being a billionaire

- If Andrew regrets working as hard as he did to get major success

- And the #1 thing he thinks startups NEED to be successful

 

Enjoy those 3 things… plus a bunch more ear nuggets along the way.

Not only is Steve a million-dollar entrepreneur and popular content creator, but he’s also a dad to two teenage kids — and spoiler alert… they still like him!!! And today, Steve’s here to talk about how he made that happen, and why he wrote a book about it…

He is the co-founder of PayPal and Palantir, a billionaire investor, and the author of the bestselling book Zero to One.

Here’s a few GIGANTIC nuggets you are gonna learn in this episode:

1. Waking up early, drinking wine, and willpower

2. What kind of phone Peter uses

3. Zombification of all thoughts
