In this week's episode, Noah shares Chapter One of his new book, "Million Dollar Weekend." 

Noah dives into his backstory, from being fired from Facebook and losing a billion dollars, to dusting himself off and starting before feeling ready, creating a marketing plan for Mint with no prior experience.

He shares his experience of not fitting the traditional mold to battling feelings of unworthiness. He recounts his experiences traveling the world, tackling every business opportunity that came his way, by not over thinking and using the superpower of starting now, not later. Act first and think later.
