How To Find True Allies In Life
01:14:00

How many times have you been in dire need of help and the people you reached out to had amazing stories with a million reasons why they weren't able to or they forgot to or something came up? How many of those friends do see that kind of behavior from on a regular basis? How many employees? How many business partners? Who can you actually look to in your life and say "Your actions have made it clear that you really do care about me?"

Sometimes, we surround ourselves with the wrong people and don't take enough time to vet out our social circles. It's poison. Here are some things you need to know:

  • People lie. Numbers don't.
  • There's a difference between expecting someone to be perfect vs expecting someone to be competent.
  • A lot of the time, people say they love you more than they actually do love you.
  • Being cynical can cause you to have a distorted way of choosing your circle.
  • Sometimes it's not about listening to someone's words. It's about paying attention to their overall vibe.

Listen to the full episode to learn much more about all of these pointers!

Inside The Mind Of Elon Musk: My Interview With Ashlee Vance
00:51:24

I interviewed Ashlee Vance about his book, "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future."

He has spent over 40 hours talking with Elon and interviewed close to 300 people for his book.

Elon is someone that personifies what people want in their own lives. He is willing to give up everything he has for something he believes in.

75% of people at one point in their lives will dream of starting something. The percentage of people that actually try is lower than that, and the amount of people that succeed is even lower.

Elon is the first person to run three companies that are worth over a billion dollars. He is also tied for the 100th richest man in the world.

From a rough upbringing in South Africa to becoming arguably one of the greatest business minds of our generation, his story resonates with anyone trying to become a successful entrepreneur.

eCommerce Has Won!
00:22:11

"The results are in and... e-commerce has won. Still using the brick and mortar model? You need to pivot. Quickly. Customers want the convenience of shopping online. Jeff Bezos predicted this in the 90s and now he’s one of the wealthiest people in the world.


I’ve been telling people for over 10 years the internet is changing things. That’s why I started teaching online education programs. You don’t have to go to a campus to learn. Now so many people do it from home.


There are more tools than ever for starting an online business. If you’re offering a physical product, use Shopify. You want to offer a product that’ll do well no matter what’s going on in the world. That’s why I offer meat, education, and clothes with my e-commerce businesses.


You also need a good story. Every successful business has a great story. Stories sell. Make your story something you believe in. Elon Musk believes we need to live on other planets and builds reusable rockets.


It’s not too late to get into e-commerce. More people do it now, but more people are using the internet. Your time is now."

Quarantine Business Building and Other Things
01:00:20

As the days continue to be uncertain about when all of the chaos of coronavirus will end, many people have several questions to ask. These questions may be about business, personal life and/or government. Today Tai answers tons of them with an Instagram live session. Stay tuned!


Points to Keep in Mind:

  • Although many businesses are failing, some are skyrocketing right now.


  • Grow your knowledge during this quarantine and read books to pass time!


  • There's no "beginners" stock in the stock market. 


  • It's crucial to have people in your circle that are agreeable with you.


  • B2B (business to business) consulting is a brilliant way to take advantage of this quarantine.


  • There's always someone doing life better than you. Get over it.


  • There's always money out there, you just have to find where it is. 


  • Incentivize a goal rather than punish a failure.

Are We in a Recession? Should We Buy Stock Right Now?
01:00:19

We face a very unique situation right now with the current pandemic. Coronavirus/Covid-19 is driving the economy downward drastically and we certainly weren't prepared for it. So with that said, what are you going to do about it in your world? There's a lot of risk but there might be opportunity, too.


"As long as cryptocurrency remains hypothetical, it'll be more volatile." - Tai Lopez

Points to keep in mind:

  • The world order is bound to change in light of today's circumstance.
  • You can either freak out, or you can stay calm. What's gonna happen is what's gonna happen.
  • Narcissism and Machiavellianism are completely different personalities.
  • Always be mindful of both sides of the narrative,
  • Cryptocurrency can be a volatile and risky market.
  • Your investing should be primarily in things you have control of. 
  • A key rule of thumb to investing is buy when the market is low; sell when the market is high.
  • Live your life with caution, but don't live your life out of fear.
  • You should only be putting walls up after an experience. Not before.
  • Don't be intimidated by the powers that be, but don't be disrespectful.
  • Living a reactionary life means you're never prepared for what's next. Be proactive, not reactive.


"Buy low, sell high." - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Summary: In this era, there's a lot of fear and chaos throughout society. Everyone is reacting to things rather than preparing for them. Don't fall into that stream of living.

Live a life of strategy.


"If you always react, you never strategize." - Tai Lopez

The Secret to Endless Motivation
00:08:46

“You need to be rewired for success” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Dopamine is a substance in your brain that not only makes you feel good in general, but also confident and ambitious. But science has shown that the more that you win, the more dopamine receptors you grow. This makes you more confident and ambitious, which in turn makes you grow even more receptors.

It’s a virtuous cycle.


But it goes both ways, and this is why those who win tend to continue to win, while those who are stuck with a limiting mindset have a very difficult time breaking out of that mindset.

Your mindset might not be your fault. It could be a result of your parents, the public school system, your friends, or any number of factors. But it is holding you back.


This is why I try to show you my own success and the success of others. So that your world expands, and your mindset enlarges. As this happens, and you see the possibilities in the world, you start to win more, you grow more dopamine receptors, and the cycle begins to turn in your favor instead of against you.


And understanding of the above science is essential to being able to motivate yourself to work hard and succeed, and that is what I’m teaching you on this episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“It’s not enough to know how to do something, you have to have the confidence, ambition, and motivation to follow through on it” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • You have to understand how to motivate yourself
  • Dopamine receptors are what make you feel good, and more importantly, confident
  • When you win, your brain grows more dopamine receptors, and when you lose, you lose dopamine receptors
  • Winning makes you more confident and more ambitious, which then makes you more ambitious, and makes you win more. It’s a virtuous cycle
  • You need to be rewired for success
  • It’s not enough to know how to do something, you have to have the confidence, ambition, and motivation to follow through on it

The REAL Story Behind the Wolf of Wall Street: Jordan Belfort
01:02:33

“A lot of people have great ideas and concepts, but if you don’t know how to express them to others and persuade them, you will not be able to do much with your ideas” - Jordan Belfort

(click to tweet)

Today’s guest is none other than the Wolf of Wall Street Himself, Jordan Belfort, and we’re talking about sales, how to learn to be a better salesman, and more generally, how to become more persuasive in everything you do in life.

A lot of business people have good ideas and concepts for their business, but in reality, the value of their idea is either multiplied or drastically reduced by their ability to persuade others of their idea!

This is why sales is important to everyone, not just people who do or plan to make their living as a “salesman.” If you want to be successful, you will have to learn how to convince others, and Jordan’s Straight Line System is the proven strategy to teach you how to do that.

Learn all of that and much more, on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“Strategic preparation is essential to good sales” - Jordan Belfort

(click to tweet)

TaiLopez.com/Wolf


Points to Keep In Mind

  • A lot of people have great ideas and concepts, but if you don’t know how to express it to others and persuade them, you will not be able to do much with your ideas
  • Even people who are natural at something follow certain rules and strategies, they just do it naturally. But anyone can learn them
  • Strategic preparation is essential to good sales
  • Your prospect needs to be 10 out of 10 on your product, trusting you, and your company, before closing
  • Rookie salespeople skip the qualifying section of the sales process. First of all, you need to make sure your prospect is in the market in the first place
  • By asking smart questions, you can get into solid rapport with prospects
  • Your prospect has to believe that you really care about them
  • Your prospect has to understand that, fundamentally, you’re just like them
  • Every idea has a certain amount of value to it. But the way it is presented either multiplies that value, or takes away from it
  • Persuasion is a learnable thing
  • Human communication is 45% tone of voice, 45% body language, and only 10% words
  • Body language has a way of slipping under the radar, and going right to the unconscious mind and creating a gut reaction
  • When someone makes their first impression of you, they should be thinking:
  • This person is sharp as a tac
  • This person is enthusiastic
  • This person is an expert in the field
  • If you make a bad first impression, it takes 7 subsequent meetings to turn that around
  • When you’re perceived as an expert, it gives you the opportunity to control the flow of the conversation
  • The first stage of confidence comes from acting as if
  • Study the best, in detail, to model it and eventually become it
  • Resilience has to do with the fundamental belief that you have what it takes to be successful
  • Once you learn how to communicate, it changes who you are, and you become the successful person you could be
  • Without fear, there is no courage
  • Objections are nothing more than smoke-screens for uncertainty

The Secret to Apple’s Success: How To Achieve Massive Profits with Scott Galloway
00:08:34

Buy Scott’s book “The Four” and his others here.

“Our instincts, ever since we emerged from caves, is more. We always want more, because the penalty for less was death” - Scott Galloway

(click to tweet)

Apple has managed to do something that no other company in history has: Combine the lowest cost of goods through mass production with the highest profit margins available only to luxury brands.

This combination has resulted in a company that has massive profits, and the most valuable company in the world.

This demonstrates the value of finding a way to appeal to irrational urges and instincts, like status and mate-worthiness, in your marketing and product design.

Learn how Apple was able to pull this off, and what it means for how you can achieve massive margins in business, on this episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“The more for less business strategy is usually the company that is the most valuable in the world” - Scott Galloway

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • In the modern age, we don’t tend to depend as much on a superbeing “God” for answers, but we still have anxieties, so Google is now filling that role
  • Google is our modern-man’s God
  • Facebook taps into our need to love and be loved
  • The number one indicator of your chances to make it to 100 is the number of people that you love
  • Our instincts, ever since we emerged from caves, is more. We always want more, because the penalty for less was death
  • The more for less business strategy is usually the company that is the most valuable in the world
  • Apple is the new signal that you have good genes, and are a good mate
  • Apple has been able to pull off the impossible: It can secure components for the lowest price, and then charge the highest price for it
  • Because Apple taps into our irrational urges, it is the most profitable company ever

“It’s better to be rich than to be right” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Scan at least 3 words at a time, to read faster with better comprehension
  • Use a pacer when reading, and set the pace for your eyes to follow
  • You will make more money if you know more languages
  • If you have children, one of the best gifts you can give them is an education in different languages while they’re young
  • Total immersion, without all of the rules, etc, is the best way to learn a language
  • To learn something, it has to feel important
  • See life as an adventure, rather than an accomplishment
  • Your goal is not always to be right, your goal is to figure out what is right no matter what it is
  • It’s exhausting to work on something that you’re not passionate about
  • A business partner is like a marriage, so you need to very carefully vet anyone you are considering bringing on as a partner
  • It’s better to be rich than to be right
  • Approach life with the idea that you can learn to do anything
  • Mentors are essential. Learn from them instead of trying to reinvent the wheel
  • Working hard is only 25% of the formula
  • Tools are essential to the process of making money online
  • Teaching people how to do things, and how to make money doing those things, is one of the easiest and fastest ways to start making money online
  • A lot of people take for granted what they do for their job, when there are actually more ways to make money with it than you may be thinking of
  • If there are no competitors for your business, it might be because there is no demand for it
  • A lot of times, it’s a good idea to choose a market where there are competitors, but you know what differentiates you

Billionaire Naveen Jain's Ways of Learning
00:11:52

“Always stay intellectually curious” - Naveen Jain

(click to tweet)

The saying goes, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink,” to demonstrate that if someone doesn’t want or is unwilling to do something for themselves that would be good for them, there is little you can do. But if you focus your efforts instead on how you make the horse thirsty, you’ve solved the problem.

This thirst is what Naveen Jain says anyone who wants to be successful needs to cultivate. It is intellectual curiosity, and a desire to constantly learn, and it is what separates the greats, those who are super successful, from the rest.

If you want to be successful, you need to cultivate inside yourself this desire to learn. Find out how billionaire Naveen Jain learns every day, on this episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“As an entrepreneur, your jobs is not to focus on where the world is now, but where you want it to be” - Naveen Jain

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Google everything
  • Always stay intellectually curious
  • Learn based on the future more than the present
  • As an entrepreneur, your jobs is not to focus on where the world is now, but where you want it to be
  • Instead of leading someone to water or making them drink, consider instead what would happen if you just made them thirsty
  • Intellectual curiosity is that thirst
  • Every time you read something, it’s like connecting a dot, and sometimes you don’t see the picture until the last dot
  • Think of the life of an entrepreneur as a heartbeat: When it’s smooth, you’re dead
  • The only time you fail in life is when you give up

Is Evolutionary Psychology Wrong About Beauty? With Richard Prum
00:48:53

“Beauty can function somewhat like an irrationally exuberant market bubble” - Richard Prum

(click to tweet)

The evolutionary view of beauty has traditionally been that humans evolved a sense of what was beautiful based on practically. We’re often taught that things like the waist to hip ratio are a long-ingrained sign of fertility to men, which is why we find them attractive.

My guest today, Richard Prum, has a different view. He says that beauty can be viewed more as an “irrationally exuberant financial market bubble.” In other words, it’s not so cut and dry, and natural selection has led each of us, within our own cultures, to develop a sense of what we consider attractive, not dependent on the practicality of evolutionary considerations.

What do you think? Let me know! Leave a rating and review in iTunes, and tell me your thoughts in the review!

“Beauty is a social contrivance. It’s invented by us” - Richard Prum

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Certain aspects of science seem to be completely unexplainable
  • Beauty can function somewhat like an irrationally exuberant market bubble
  • Beauty is a social contrivance. It’s invented by us
  • Humans are evolved to be satisfied, and to find satisfying relationships
  • The evolutionary idea of beauty being practical neglects some of the concepts of natural selection in the human animal
  • In society, it could be argued that it is actually women who are defining the idea of beauty more than men
  • The idea of machismo and dominance as the core of attraction is deeply flawed and a cause of unhappiness
  • Get in touch with the idea of what it means to be really caring for your partner
  • Human diversity is a result of the diversity of mate-choice, therefore standards of beauty can be far different across cultures
  • The men who are most attractive tend to be socially attentive

My Daily Motivational Trick, The Future-Value Formula, & Why People Hate
00:44:10

“The true definition of “luck” in this modern age is learning early” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

To determine the financial value potential of something right now, there is a simple formula: Future value = present value of future revenue. This is the formula that you can use when examining business ideas and opportunities, when looking into investments, and all other areas of financial potential.

Today, I am talking about that formula, as well as why apartments are one of the lower risk real estate opportunities, the 2 ways you make money, how to monetize a brand beyond normal operations, why life is like poker, 3 ways to start a side hustle, why haters hate, why mindset is the main thing holding people back, and what the butterfly effect means for the importance of the little decisions you make everyday.

Don’t forget, you can listen to The Tai Lopez Show on Spotify! Click “Follow” and let me know what you think!


“Think about life like poker: You don’t have to win every hand, just don’t go all in when you have a bad hand” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • In the long term, something is worth: Present value of future revenue
  • Ask yourself: How much would you pay today to have a future revenue?
  • Apartments allow you to diversify your future revenue
  • 2 ways you make money in anything:
  • Capital appreciation
  • Cashflow
  • If you build a brand that is recognizable and has good connotations with it, you can make money through licensing deals without actually running the business
  • The true definition of “luck” in this modern age is learning early
  • Think about life like poker: You don’t have to win every hand, just don’t go all in when you have a bad hand
  • 3 ways to start your side hustle:
  • Look at the skills you already have instead of trying to get new skills
  • Don’t just have an idea. Go from idea to offer
  • Launch before you think you’re ready
  • A lot of ideas cannot be validated until you actually do them
  • At the end of the day, we’re all going to the grave at around the same pace, but some people go their with a more happy life than others
  • Haters are usually just projecting their own insecurities on others
  • Too many people want to remove all insecurity from life, but that is simply not possible
  • Life goes through the process of seasons, so expect the changes
  • You have to be 100% convinced and sold on your own product to be good at sales
  • Mindset is the main thing holding most people back
  • Just as a butterfly flapping its wings can start a hurricane, very small bad decisions in your life can lead to terrible consequences down the road
  • Likewise, small intelligent decisions can help you in incredible ways down the road
  • You must structure fun and entertainment in your life to stay motivated in the long run

How to Always Be Motivated to Work
00:08:46

“Your goals and prizes should be tangible” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Very few people understand the the risk/reward bias in human brains, and how it can hold you back from achieving what you want to achieve.

Many people have an inaccurate understanding of the amount of pain, or work, that it will take for them to achieve their goals, as compared to the amount of happiness it will bring them when they finally do achieve those goals.

This is why humans procrastinate.

If they really understood the value, to them, of achieving what they were striving for in all its detail, they would not procrastinate but would be motivated to do the amount of work necessary to achieve that goal.

This episode shows you how you can change that subs-conscious misunderstanding in your own life, to help you overcome the instinct to procrastinate, and rather get down to work creating the life of your dreams!

“Change your perception of the reward/pain ratio, and understand how worth it the pain is” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Your goals and prizes should be tangible
  • The best way to avoid procrastination is to stop thinking about the work, and start thinking about the thing you want
  • People’s tendency to procrastinate comes from a misunderstanding of the pain to reward ratio
  • Find a way to really see, and keep constantly on your mind, your goals and the reason why you are working hard to achieve them
  • Don’t make things too complicated with different theories, ideas and techniques. Just focus on the end game
  • Change your perception of the reward/pain ratio, and understand how worth it the pain is
  • Build associations with rewards for the work that you do
  • Don’t focus as much on the process as compared with getting down to real, hard work

Game Theory: Strategy for Entrepreneurs & Life Decisions
00:30:35

“Spend at least a couple hours per day really thinking through what you’re doing in your life” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Unintended consequences often negate the good that a regulation or ruling in government is trying to do. In fact, often the problem that was supposed to be solved is simply magnified through the unintended consequences, and the same thing can be true for your life.

That is why I believe that entrepreneurs, and really everyone else as well, need to learn game theory, to understand the various ways in which their decisions will affect other people’s decisions, thereby potentially changing the outcome, and sometimes reversing the good you were trying to do with the decision in the first place.

Listen to this episode to learn more about game theory and how it can apply to the decisions you make.

Also, make sure to checkout the new Tai Lopez Flash Briefing on Alexa!


“In the modern world, you need to be careful not to be overstimulated” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • A lot of regulations have unintended side effects that must be considered
  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
  • Humans have a desire to simplify complex topic to understand them, with the result often being that the wrong conclusion is reached
  • Mother nature always laughs last
  • Entrepreneurs need to understand game theory
  • Always consider how your actions will be perceived by others, not just the immediate impact
  • The current education system encourages students to pump information into their brain and then dump it out once they finish the test
  • In the modern world, you need to be careful not to be overstimulated
  • Spend at least a couple hours per day really thinking through what you’re doing in your life
  • The human body is built to do HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training
  • It’s always better to sell to the willing

“Diversify who you learn from” - Tai Lopez

No matter how important you think that networking is, you’re probably underestimating the real value of it. It’s so valuable that you almost can not place enough importance on it. But the way that you network is incredibly important. There is a right way and a wrong way, and on today’s episode I’m telling you what the right way is so that you get the most out of this essential aspect of business.

Listen to the rest of this episode to get all 7 steps to becoming a better business networker.


“A certain minimum amount of extroversion will make you happier” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • It’s not what you know, it’s who you know
  • A certain minimum amount of extroversion will make you happier
  • If you isolate yourself too much, you will not be as happy as you could be
  • If you want to make money, you’re going to have to network even if you’re an introvert
  • Diversify who you learn from
  • Always hire people who have skills that you can’t teach
  • Organisms that only learn through trial and error tend to die out
  • Anyone who is hard to talk to is probably not worth talking to

How To Hack Your Daily Routine To Be As Productive As Possible
01:25:47

“We are sponges. Find a mentor and get inspired by hanging around that person.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

A productive daily routine is difficult to achieve.

We all wake up in the morning, check our phones, and then go about our days doing the best we can. But then we finish our day and go to bed thinking: was that really the best I could do? 

Your daily life should be composed of tasks dedicated to either maintaining the life you’re living or trying to improve your life for some future date. If you’re disappointed with your daily routine, it’s because you aren’t attending to this rule. And if you believe you are, some trait is preventing you from seeing the picture clearly.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are taking a close look at productivity. How can you squeeze the most juice out of your day? The first step is to be honest with yourself. Self-deception will disguise laziness as procrastination or stubbornness as ‘your opinion.’ So, before listening to this podcast, take a second to check your ego at the door and get ready to make the changes required to take your daily routine to the next level.

“We are born with animal brains. We only care about the now, and we are bad at planning for the future. The school system does not teach us how to rewire this. So now it’s your responsibility.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Studies show using analog is more effective than digital, so use notepads to write down tasks, to-do’s, and ideas and use apps like Evernote to take pictures/back up
  • Be methodical; K.I.S.S. - Keep It Short and Simple
  • Get a PC with ergonomic keyboard and mouse; Macbooks are not made for productivity
  • Pay attention to how you spend your time at work
  • Recognize the greats and take notes of what they do to get to their level
  • All problems are rooted in stubbornness: sensitivity, sensual, stupidity, and self-importance
  • Prevent injuries; Lebron James spends $1 million/year on his body; spend the $10 on a mousepad that prevents carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Specify what message you are replying to in messaging tools like WhatsApp or iMessage
  • Conscientiousness is most important, defined as a combination of organization, diligence, prudence, and perfectionism
  • Spend 30 minutes to 1 hour organizing your day
  • Hack your reward system by rewarding yourself for accomplished tasks
  • You can’t enable progress without creating monotonous maintenance routines
  • Ask yourself what are your bad brain habits and then figure out how to rewire them
  • Parents love you because they see themselves/their DNA in you
  • In the morning, a) look at the big picture/scan your emails, b) then methodically go through your emails, c) write down a priority list
  • And at the end of the day, a) figure out what you’re doing wrong, and b) write down a short hypothesis on how to fix that
  • Find a mentor and get inspired by hanging around that person
  • No good habits are formed from people being nice to you
  • Powerful people take power naps, set a timer for 18 minutes

Hard Work Alone Does Not Get You Success
00:19:25

“Have a varied strategy to life” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Live your life with the constant idea in the back of your mind of what you want written on your tombstone when you die. We all die sometime, some sooner than others, and you simply cannot predict what will happen to you, and how much time you have left.

This is why, regardless of your age, you need to be committed to sucking everything you possibly can out of life. Live it to the fullest, don’t let fear or doubt hold you back, and live in such a way that you can be confident that you will not die with regrets, but knowing you got the most out of your life.


“Stress-reaction is one of the most important success factors in your life” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Don’t be predictable in your approach to life
  • Have a varied strategy to life
  • Conflict resolution is extremely powerful, and you must become a master of conflict resolution
  • Stress-reaction is one of the most important success factors in your life
  • Learn from different people, to get a varied viewpoint on life
  • Diversify how you learn so that you can learn different things from different people
  • Study experts in their field. These are not always the loudest, but look for the most qualified
  • Think of your tombstone when it comes to deciding what kind of life you want

00:29:17

“If the PC changed the world. And then the Web changed the world. And then mobile changed the world. Then augmented reality is exponentially bigger because all of those feed into it.” - Jay Samit

(click to tweet)

It wasn’t just the miners who got rich during the Gold Rush.

It was the apparel companies, the shovel manufacturers, the restaurants and bars in the area; with any trillion dollar industry comes the opportunity for many million dollar businesses to pop up.

“Every month there’s a new self-made billionaire. They didn’t go to the right schools, they don’t come from the right families, but they are looking at how the world changes and how to seize an opportunity from that change.” - Jay Samit

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Pick a competitor-free industry and stake your claim as the world’s expert
  • When dinosaurs fight for turf, be the mammal that sneaks in and carves out a corner
  • Augmented reality isn’t just about adding to the environment, it’s about subtracting
  • Examples of new AR technologies: software that can tell if a person’s gait is suspicious or if body temperature is high/at risk for ebola
  • Big opportunity with AR to bypass employee training and equip new-hires with technology that makes them a professional (ex: electricians)
  • Lots of opportunity in the UI/UX of AR-technologies
  • Moore’s Law says the price of AR or any tech will halve each year
  • AR integrates perfectly with cryptocurrency

“Old media has basically been co-opted into being the investor relations PR department for big tech” - Scott Galloway

(click to tweet)

Scott Galloway is here today to talk about his new book “The Four,” which discusses the major four tech companies, Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook, and the ramifications of the world we live in.

In the process, we talk about how marketing works in today’s information economy, why irrational urges are the best space to work in because they provide massive margins, how Google has come to replace God in our lives, and why the more boring, less sexy industries are often the best opportunities to make good money.

“The question we have to wrestle with is: Is what is good for the consumer always good for society?” - Scott Galloway

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Amazon does a very good job of dominating the news cycle with features announced carefully for this purpose, sometimes more for the purpose of the PR than for the feature itself
  • Old media has basically been co-opted into being the investor PR department for big tech
  • Traditionally, companies would try to under promise and over deliver. Because of the current news cycle, the reverse is the case with big tech
  • The big four tech companies are getting to the point where they are starting to effectively replace religion in our lives
  • Big tech is bringing very complex moral questions with it
  • 80% of our phone time is spent in app, and 6 of the top 10 apps are owned by one company: Facebook
  • Most of the money spent on advertising is with big tech companies
  • As tech does better, it lowers prices, the reverse of the trend we see in traditional companies
  • People now look to Google for truth, rather than traditional sources
  • The question we have to wrestle with is: Is what is good for the consumer always good for society?
  • We’ve had job destruction in the past, we’ve just never had companies as good at it as big tech is today
  • Our evolutionary instinct is to want more, because lack causes starvation. But in the current first-world dynamic of plenty, this has some unintended consequences
  • Irrational urges on the part of the consumer can lead to massive margins
  • More households have a recurring revenue relationship with Amazon Prime than voted in the 2016 presidential election or have a landline
  • Brands may need to start to open stores to maintain their irrational margins
  • The more boring the industry, the higher the potential ROI

“You should be testing at least 17 things per day if you can” - Tai Lopez

Are you experimenting every single day?

A lot of people either don’t like to experiment, or don’t think to. But, in reality, experimentation is the only way that you can take the guesswork out of your decisions.

If you have been working on a decision, and trying to figure out which is the best way to go with something, you need to find a way to break the components of the decision down into experimental aspects, and then measure the results.

You should try to do at least 17 different small experiments every single day.

“Motivation is essential to success, but you need to LEARN how to motivate yourself” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Motivation is required for success. It’s as simple as that. But while most people understand this truth, few people take the time to learn how to motivate themselves effectively and well.

But below I’m outlining the 17 different aspects of what motivates you, and how you can use them to achieve more.

In all of this, it’s importance to have balance. Too often people get all caught up in one or two of the below, and put 90% of their effort into those things. Instead, work on spreading these out evenly in your life, around 5% or so for each, to make sure your life is as fulfilling and happy as possible.

“If people are high in narcissism they feel entitled to a larger slice of the pie.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

If you haven’t heard of it before, there’s something called the dark triad. It’s a test that analyzes your exploitative personality traits: Narcissism, Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism. These traits seems to be on the rise in today’s society.

In fact Tai had models who auditioned for his clothing line take the test, and had his staff not call back anyone who scored more than a 60%. As a result they had to turn away 70% of the models, which is much higher than normal.

On this episode of The Tai Lopez, Tai and Dr. David Buss dive into what is making these exploitative traits increase. Download this episode today to see what is contributing to this epidemic.


In the year 1900 90% of society lived in rural or small villages. Today it’s switched.

(click to tweet)


The Cliff Notes:

  • The dark triad has increased in recent years.
  • Narcissism is not being able to see other people’s side and feeling entitled.
  • Machiavellianism is being two faced.
  • Psychopathy is a lack of empathy.
  • In 1900 most people lived in small societies, now most people live in big cities.
  • In cities people can escape consequences.
  • Social media is bringing light to the narcissism today.
  • People in the midwest are less likely to be narcissistic.

“Living in cities eliminates the reputational damage associated with exploitative strategies.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

The skill of the making good decisions is one of the most important skills to master in your life. There are several ways to go about it, but one of the best strategies is to look at the different courses, and ask which way has the most potential for regret, and then take the other one.

Regrets are one of the worst things you can have, so if you live you life with an eye towards always looking for the way to have the least of them as you get older, you will be happy with your decisions as you go.

“You have to be able to see possibilities before you pursue possibilities” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Your potential will be what you decide it is. The reality is that what holds most people back is their own mindset. If you think you have unlimited potential, within your circle of competence, you really do have unlimited potential within that circle.

The circle of competence refers the range of things that you are really competent in. For instance, if you are not at all naturally athletic, you do not have unlimited potential in athletic pursuits. But provided you have a certain level of competence within a pursuit or skill, your potential is probably only being limited by what you mindset is.

So increase the range of your mindset, and what you believe is possible for you to achieve. As you do that, you will see your results begin to increase in kind.

  • Make up for problems with volume

“Spend at least a couple hours per day really thinking through what you’re doing in your life” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Unintended consequences often negate the good that a regulation or ruling in government is trying to do. In fact, often the problem that was supposed to be solved is simply magnified through the unintended consequences, and the same thing can be true for your life.

That is why I believe that entrepreneurs, and really everyone else as well, need to learn game theory, to understand the various ways in which their decisions will affect other people’s decisions, thereby potentially changing the outcome, and sometimes reversing the good you were trying to do with the decision in the first place.

Listen to this episode to learn more about game theory and how it can apply to the decisions you make.

“In the modern world, you need to be careful not to be overstimulated” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • A lot of regulations have unintended side effects that must be considered
  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
  • Humans have a desire to simplify complex topic to understand them, with the result often being that the wrong conclusion is reached
  • Mother nature always laughs last
  • Entrepreneurs need to understand game theory
  • Always consider how your actions will be perceived by others, not just the immediate impact
  • The current education system encourages students to pump information into their brain and then dump it out once they finish the test
  • In the modern world, you need to be careful not to be overstimulated
  • Spend at least a couple hours per day really thinking through what you’re doing in your life
  • The human body is built to do HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training
  • It’s always better to sell to the willing

3 Reasons Most People Fail
00:08:32

“To be good in business, you have to be able to listen carefully and read people” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Stubbornness is a primary reason for most people’s inability to achieve what they want, and be successful on their own terms. When you are stubborn, you limit your opportunities. But the truth is that really good opportunities do not come around too often in life, so if you really want to be successful you have to seize them when they do, and take full advantage of them.

In addition, a lot of people are completely unwilling and even unable to see their own faults, because of their sensitivity to input and correction from others. When you are corrected, but all you can see or feel is how hurt you are that someone else doesn’t think you know everything, you are setting yourself up for failure.

Listen to this episode to hear the 3 reasons most people fail, and how you can avoid them, to achieve great things in your life.

“If things change, you acquire new evidence, you need to change and not be stubborn” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • The number 1 reasons people aren’t successful is because they are stubborn and unable to change
  • To be good in business, you have to be able to listen carefully and read people
  • Most people are completely unwilling to change their routine
  • If things change, you acquire new evidence, you need to change and not be stubborn
  • By being stubborn, you limit your opportunities
  • Do not be overly optimistic. Very few lives are full of opportunities, so seize them when you do
  • Many people are overly sensitive to advice or correction

“Good eating lifestyle is not a diet, because it’s not limiting. It’s a lifestyle” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

The Gracie Diet is an eating lifestyle, developed by the Gracie family of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fame, and designed to combine the correct foods with each other, to give you energy and health to accomplish what you want in life.

But even more fundamentally, in this episode I talk about why it is important to be willing to experiment. Those who have done incredible things have always been willing to experiment, to try things out and see if they work, and whether that’s diet, lifestyle, habits, or anything else, everyone is different, and so experimentation is often the only way you can know if something is right for you specifically.


“When starting a new lifestyle, take it slowly and in stages” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • The fuel you put in your body is going to affect your performance in a powerful way
  • Most people don’t pay nearly enough attention to how certain foods make them feel
  • Many people are guided almost entirely by the pleasure of eating
  • Good eating lifestyle is not a diet, because it’s not limiting. It’s a lifestyle
  • Most people lack potassium in their diet
  • Eat fruit for dessert
  • A 24 fast once per month is a great cleanse
  • If you write down everything that you eat, you will realize that you’re not eating the way you want
  • When starting a new lifestyle, take it slowly and in stages
  • Make sure you hang out with people who eat similarly to the way you want to eat, because it will affect you greatly
  • Be constantly willing to try out different things, to find out what works for you
  • Willingness to experiment is extremely important to success
  • Take naps

The 5 Crucial Rules to Public Speaking
00:21:35

 “When you’re trying to get people’s attention, speak fast. When you’re trying to get people’s trust, speak slow.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Most of us are scared of public speaking.


But that’s only because we have yet to have a good experience getting in front of an audience. The stage fright and perceived threat of embarrassment makes us content with staying inside our comfort zone.


If we’re not careful, this level of content can persist throughout our lives, leaving us in a position of never facing our fears.


That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are breaking down the 5 rules of powerful public speaking. From mastering emotional transference to understanding the different levels of cadence, this toolset gives us a framework to reference the next time we get in front of an audience.


Tune in to this episode, so you can start to cease the speaking opportunities that are presented to you!

“Humans, by their very nature, don’t trust other people.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind


  • Understand evolutionary psychology and risk-aversion to become a good public speaker
  • Slow down your speech if you start to feel anxiety or nervousness
  • Find that balance between improvisation and preparation
  • “Builder” personality-types like to listen to more structured speaking styles
  • Master emotional transference, the act of transferring your strongly held beliefs to another perosn
  • Understand that the only thing words are good for is transferring emotions
  • Pursue your life with logic ahead of anything else
  • What makes you a great speaker is the same that makes you great at anything: practice

“Build on your strengths, rather than trying to get a different strength” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

People are much closer to their side hustle than they think. A lot of people think that they need to acquire new skills in order to start a side hustle, but the reality is that most people already have a fantastic skill, probably several, that could be turned into a side hustle.

Today, we’re talking with Chris Guillebeau about the 3 ways you can start building a side hustle immediately. Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams, so there really is no reason to wait, and Chris talks us through the 3 ways that you can start earning money on your own terms today.

“Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams” -Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Build on your strengths, rather than trying to get a different strength
  • Everyone's an expert in something, they just don’t always know it
  • Brainstorm through the things you’re good at, write them all down, to organize your potential ideas
  • Get things out in the world, even if you feel like it’s not ready, because you probably won’t ever think it’s ready
  • Procrastination is the killer of hopes and dreams
  • Some of those closest to you will become the people who mess up your world the most, because the will externalize their own paranoia
  • Don’t project your own insecurities about yourself on other people
  • If you can come up with $100, you can change your life financially
  • People are often looking for a way to remove all insecurity in their life, but that is the wrong goal
  • Understand the cycles that will always come

3 Ways the Average Person Can Start a Side Hustle

1- Look at the skills you already have, rather trying to get a new skill

2 - Don’t just have idea, go from idea to OFFER. The promise. How will this change your life?

3 - Launch before you think you’re ready

How to Choose Your Social Circle
00:24:09

“It’s ok to be a little eccentric, but know where it becomes a problem” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

As you go through life, you come to the realization that many people have serious psychological problems. Whatever metric or system you use to measure psychological issues, you will find that a very large number of the people that you run across exhibit those traits.


But times reveals everything, so when it comes to deciding the people you will have relationships with, whether personal or business, give it some time. It’s easy for someone to pretend to be someone that they are not for a few weeks or a few months, but try to give it a year to make sure you know who they really are.


Then, understand that everyone has a little weird in them. Everyone has a different mix of character traits, with desirable and less desirable aspects mixed in. Just make sure the weirdness doesn’t out-weigh the rest too much. Allow for the mix in your relationships, as long as it’s not overboard.

“Three things that will mess you up: Pride, stubbornness, and being overly sensitive” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Probably about 70% of people that you will run into have serious psychological issues
  • If you don’t understand psychological issues, you might start second-guessing yourself and thinking that you’re the one with issues
  • The dark triad is one way to understand psychological issues of varying degrees
  • It’s ok to be a little eccentric, but know where it becomes a problem
  • Three things that will mess you up: Pride, stubbornness, and being overly sensitive
  • A lot of times pride expresses itself as anger
  • Often, stubborn people come across as very nice, but do not act on advice
  • Everybody is allowed to be a little weird. Maybe 20%. Just not too much
  • The first step in progress is massive awareness
  • Be careful about all new relationships. Time reveals all, so give it time to understand who people really are
  • Be honest with yourself. Admit who you are and your weakness. And see if maybe you should get a pro to help you, and see a psychologist

“When everything is unpredictable in your life, you’ll have no brain power left to innovate” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Making money with social media is a lot more doable than most people think. It comes down to having a good understanding of human nature, understanding the technology, and then testing and iterating.

Today, we’re speaking with experts in all areas of branding, about the specific steps that are required to make money with social media. Whether you want to make money with your own social media accounts or by managing other people’s socials, this episode will show you the way forward.

One last note: We’re up on Spotify! Make sure to head over to Spotify and listen to The Tai Lopez Show over there!


“Be careful about making too much money too fast. You might not know how to handle it” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • If you want to make money with anything in your life, you need to become a master of systems
  • When everything is unpredictable in your life, you’ll have no brain power left to innovate
  • To make money with social media, start by selling other people’s products
  • Do collaborations with other influencers to get started building your social media
  • Vlogging is the future on all social media platforms. Tell your story
  • Smart work always beats hard work. But do both
  • Part of execution is strategy
  • When something is good enough, launch it. Then, innovate and improve as you go
  • If you don’t launch with errors, you waited too long
  • Spend 70% of your time on stuff that works now, 20% on things that you’re pretty sure will work but you’ve never done, and 10% on hair-brained, crazy ideas
  • Never be the first, or last, to an idea
  • Be careful about making too much money too fast. You might not know how to handle it

People Pleasing Isn't the Way to Success
00:17:54

“Don’t try to please everyone. Just do you” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

It feels like the level of narcissism in the world is continually increasing. Just take a look at your Instagram feed, and you will see it proudly on display. It seems like nothing is more important to people today than themselves and their looks.

Maybe it’s time to take a step back and reevaluate our emphasis. Put more effort into the truly important things in life, and less into the ones that don’t matter. Put less effort into how you look, and more into what you do.

At the end of the day, you can’t please everyone, so don’t worry about it. Just do you, and do good in the world.


“Be willing to experiment. Don’t be close-minded” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Don’t try to please everyone. Just do you
  • Narcissism is everywhere. People think it’s all about them
  • Be willing to experiment. Don’t be close-minded
  • You need a small amount of narcissism to improve yourself. But it seems like it’s out of control these days
  • We need to become more curious people about many things

“Study history so that you don’t make stupid decisions” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Do you read history? Today, most people don’t. Most people don’t read at all, but if they do read, it’s probably either light, fluffy novels or maybe a self-help book here and there. But what about history? What can a deeper understanding of history do for your life, in helping you achieve the best life possible?

Today, I’m going through some moments in history, and what can be learned from them. Because without and understanding of history, there really is no way that we can predict the future. But because history tends to repeat itself, if we develop an understanding and knowledge of history and the trends that come back time and time again, we can better understand the world around us, and make more sense of where it’s headed, as well as if current political decisions are likely to be a good idea.

"The reward should be emphasized in education to motivate students to learn" - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


 

Points to Keep In Mind

  • To start learning history, focus first on what you enjoy
  • History should be more about stories than dates and numbers to be interesting
  • Show the reward before you teach in order to effectively learn, and want to learn!
  • First you get the mindset, then you launch the business, then you get the money. The progression is important
  • Use the HEXACO personality test to more fully understand personalities
  • The C, which stands for Conscientiousness, is probably the most important attribute when it comes to making money
  • Conscientiousness:
  • Perfectionism
  • Organization
  • Prudence (the ability to make good decisions)
  • Parents are usually the worst thing for their kids
  • Politics and Republican vs Democrat tends to have more to do with personality types
  • Knowing history, and how it repeats itself, will help you earn more money and be more successful
  • The mark of an intelligent person is to see both sides of a story
  • Study history so that you don’t make stupid decisions

Tai Vs. Haters
00:11:46

“Age is irrelevant. You don’t know when you’re going to die.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


People lie, but numbers don’t.

As our businesses and brands grow, we attract more and more people into our network. These individuals will have things to say about our success, and if we’re not careful, we can become distracted by that external noise and lose focus of what’s actually important.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are debating a hater online. When we acknowledge the peanut gallery, we gain insight into the lapses in judgement in those around us. Thus, we are able to move forward with a more accurate vision for our future.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to best respond to your haters!

“If you’re ruthless, you want a recession to happen.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • You want businesses that move in the opposite direction of the economy (inverse correlation)
  • The stages of capitalism: recession, expansion, bubble, and then repeat cycle
  • A recession happens about once every 7 years
  • Understand that you can make more money at that bottom if you’re ruthless
  • Normal unemployment rates are at 5-6%
  • People lie, but numbers don’t

  • Frame the Republican vs. Democratic debate as a man vs. woman personality type difference
  • How tribes handle hunting vs. gathering with differing variance foods reveals how we should cooperate
  • Blockchain technology could empower people to vote with less barriers

  • We create a set of idealized beliefs about people because we no longer live in small villages and know their histories

“The President, in my opinion, is a reflection of what’s already there. They don’t cause anything.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Our President is everywhere.

No matter where you turn, his face and some news headline is screaming at you. The mass media makes it near impossible for us to focus on anything else. However, some of the blame must be put on ourselves for keeping those Twitter feeds open, leaving the TV on, and letting our Facebook friends dictate our thoughts.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the importance of the President. By examining this, we can better understand what’s actually happening in our day-to-day when we become distracted by the mass hysteria. Inside this discussion, we unpack the other things that are important in life: diet, exercise, lifestyle, etc.

Tune in to this conversation to learn how to reframe your understanding of the President’s importance.

  • Your body is mostly a reflection of your diet, exercise, and lifestyle
  • Make sure the proportion of energy you spend on politics is aligned with other priorities

Starting Your Million Dollar Business Doesn't Have to Be Hard
01:08:20

“The best marketing is to demonstrate. I don’t tell you why you should listen to me. I show you.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

If everybody knew how to do e-commerce, this opportunity wouldn’t exist.

But instead people choose skepticism over knowledge. They hear the words “dropshipping” and “e-commerce” and immediately think “That’s a scam!” Why they do this is for their own personal problems, but the reality of making money online is that it’s the great frontier of 21st century business. For under $100 today, you can start a business that can net you millions in under a year.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to make money online. There are many steps involved: selecting a domain name, purchasing a URL, driving traffic to your site or product through social media advertising. Executing each of these steps is the key to launching a successful business on the Internet. Tune in to today’s discussion to learn how and generate a revenue stream that puts you one step closer to financial freedom!

“It used to cost at least $100,000 to $200,000 to get into business. Today, you can literally start a business for under $100.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • Think about business ideas from an angle of what you use in the house
  • You want to launch businesses that have competition
  • Example: McDonald’s only has 10% of the fast-food market
  • Choose a simple, memorable domain name
  • Use GoDaddy or Namecheap when purchasing a domain name
  • Look through AliExpress when finding a source for your product
  • AliExpress will do the shipping for you when someone orders your product
  • Use Shopify or ClickFunnels to build an online store on your domain
  • Today, you can literally start a business for under $100
  • When Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1994, the website cost $100,000
  • Use Facebook ads to target specific demographics of people online
  • The best marketing is demonstration; show, don’t tell
  • To become rich, you must become a master of common sense
  • Understand that huge brands can disappear (ex: Myspace and American Apparel)
  • There’s no change without a change in routine
  • Don’t blame external resources
  • There are 3 reasons people are broke: procrastination, fear, and overanalysis

Learn How To Sell OVER 1 MILLION Physical Products Per Day with Quest Bar Founder Tom Bilyeu
01:03:29

“Most people build self esteem around being right, good, or something else. Instead, build your self esteem around being the fastest, best learner” - Tom Bilyeu

(click to tweet)

Today we’re talking with the founder of Quest Bars about how he was able to build a health bar empire. Quest Bars sell 1.5 million bars per day, and today he is giving us a behind the scenes view of what it takes to do something on that scale, and just importantly, what it feels like to achieve the much success.

Tom places a tremendous amount of emphasis on where your self esteem comes from. If your self esteems comes from being right, you will feel too threatened to admit when you’re wrong, and learn from it. But if your self esteem instead comes from the idea that you are an incredible learner, the best learner in any room, you will be willing to admit when you’re wrong.

Just like he says, your behavior is driven by your identity. So the process of defining to yourself what your own identity is, will change your behavior, and in fact is one of the most powerful ways to change your behavior to be what you want it to be.

Learn how to achieve incredible success in whatever you plan to do in life, on this episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“When your marketing, there has to be a subconscious thing that vibes with what your customer thinks about themselves” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)


Points to Keep In Mind

  • What you build your self esteem around matters
  • Most people build self esteem around being right, good, or something else. Instead, build your self esteem around being the fastest, best learner
  • Being a constant learner is the only way that you are going to achieve great things
  • Make your goal the adventure, rather than being right
  • Influencers are a powerful way to launch
  • Business partners are like a marriage: You need to really, really know the person before you agree to anything
  • When you do a really good influencer campaign, people will start going into stores, expecting them to be sold there, and asking about it, which will pressure the stores to stock your product
  • Say no to stores who want to carry your product, keep building online, evangelize your customers until they love you, and then in a year or so you can negotiate a deal that’s much better for you
  • What you chase moves away from you, and what you deny moves closer. So attract what you want, but don’t too much of a chaser
  • You have to play the long game
  • When your marketing, there has to be a subconscious thing that vibes with what your customer thinks about themselves
  • You should believe that you can learn to do literally anything
  • Behavior is driven by identity

Learn to Work On Yourself Before Criticizing Others with Dr. David Buss
00:37:22

“Machiavellianism is when people pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

We are all flawed.

But instead of trying to fix our own issues, we point the flaws in other people. This is an inescapable part of the human condition; it’s easier to look outwards than it is to look inwards.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss, to discuss how to fix ourselves. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains the mechanics behind human psychology.

There are only a few billionaires in the world.

Since then, he’s gone on to forging a net worth of over $3 billion. He is the star of Shark Tank, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the author of How to Win at the Sport of Business, and a source of knowledge for all of us to tap into.

  • Look at how technology is being used today to figure out where it’s going tomorrow

There’s book smarts. 

And then there’s street smarts. We know which of these two we have more of, and what areas of the other we need to work on, but how exactly do we go about doing this? 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the balance of street smarts and book smarts. When we lean too heavily in one direction, our skills become lopsided and as a result, our career trajectory may flatten. But if we can welcome both domains of knowledge into our daily lives, we are able to reach new heights.

“Be firm with your beliefs. You will find people who try to move you to what they want to do. Resist. Resist. Resist.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

We all want to do everything. 

But when we try to attack this idea, we often get lost in the tsunami of action items. Do I open a business account? Build a website? Buy advertising? From the outside, this may look like stagnation. But the truth is that it’s part of the process, and we just haven’t distilled our goals down yet. This is the first step to forward progress. 

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are unpacking the essential components of effective time management. By uncovering the bare bones, we can more optimally approach our day-to-day and maximize what life has to offer.

“We’ve grown up in under an antibiotic umbrella where we think antibiotics are going to cover and cure everything.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

(click to tweet)

 

Health is more than a diet and exercise regimen. 

When we take a minute to examine our health from a more global perspective, the other factors of well-being surface. Our lifestyle, our habits, our mindset—these are the things that shape a person’s vitality.  

And on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Dr. Martin Blaser, the Director of The Human Microbiome Project at NYU’s School of Medicine, to discuss the dangers of antibiotic use. Dr. Blaser has 28 patents, and is the author of Missing Microbes, a book that examines how our species is devolving with the declining supply of microbes in our system.

  • Without microbes we would not be alive

  • Babies pick up their mother’s microbes in the birth canal
  • Rising rates of cesarean sections are preventing this from happening
  • 70 years ago, agriculture experts figured out that if you feed antibiotics to animals, they gain weight faster
  • Some cities have an antibiotics in their drinking water
  • Sweden uses 40% of the antibiotics we use
  • Epidemics come from the lack of diversity in our current living situations
  • Kids born by C-section are more prone to disease (celiac disease, juvenile diabetes, etc.)
  • The rate of juvenile diabetes is doubling every 25 years
  • A Denmark study showed that antibiotics increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease by 14% in kids
  • We’ve engineered a system where the doctor-patient relationship is sterile 
  • Antibiotics change the metabolism in adults 
  • We need better diagnostics to determine viral vs. bacterial infections
  • Food preservatives are antibacterials destroying our microbiome
  • Our good bacteria fights the bad bacteria; this is the problem with anti-bacterial products
  • Hospitals and doctors like C-sections because they’re scheduled

(click to tweet)

Most of us are scared of public speaking.

But that’s only because we have yet to have a good experience getting in front of an audience. The stage fright and perceived threat of embarrassment makes us content with staying inside our comfort zone.

  • Understand that the only thing words are good for is transferring emotions
  • Pursue your life with logic ahead of anything else
  • What makes you a great speaker is the same that makes you great at anything: practice

We all want the best possible version of life for ourselves.

But often times, creating that life comes at a cost. We spend our nights and weekends, hustling on our side projects instead of spending time with our friends and family.

Most of us got a job the moment we turned 16.

The 3 Secrets to Reading People
00:36:04
“Machiavellianism is when people pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)
Growing a business requires working with other people.

It’s a fundamental truth that we’re sometimes unwilling to accept. We might think locking ourselves in our office to fine-tune the product/service helps, but the reality is that the business is only as good as the connections you make with other people.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss, to discuss the fundamentals of being a human being. With this information, we can go out into the world and more effectively read the people we work with. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains the mechanics behind human psychology.

Banks are willing to lend us credit cards.

With these credit cards, our purchasing power increases. We are able to purchase the things we want, as long as we pay the bank back. But these credit card companies also incentivize us to purchase more with bonuses and gifts. So the question becomes: how can we use these free perks to pay off our credit cards?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, Stephen Liao teaches us how to sift through the world of credit card perks to be able to do just this. Stephen dropped out of Stanford to figure out the credit card game just a year ago, and today he has a credit-limit that exceeds $3 million spread across 220 different credit cards. If he’s not flying first-class, he’s on a private jet. And if he’s not staying at the Waldorf Astoria, he’s at the Ritz-Carlton. Tune in today to learn his secrets on building a good credit score!

“Essentially, it’s legal money laundering. You pay off your credit card with cash equivalence, get your sign up bonus, and then pocket the $150.” - Stephen Liao

  • Treat your credit limit as how much money you have
  • Utilization rate, payment history, and derogatory marks affect your credit score

  • You can’t help your age of credit history
  • Try to have an age of credit history over 9 years

  • 5% money back (MB) for an intermediate credit card

Relationships can be the most difficult algorithm.

When we partner up with a mate, the bowl of emotions doubles in quantity and suddenly, there’s two spoons stirring inside. If we’re not careful with who we choose, it can quickly become a mess too great for us to handle.

That’s why breaking down personality types is so important.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are wrapping up our discussion with Dr. Helen Fisher by discussing the 4 personality types: explorers, builders, negotiators, and directors. Helen Fisher, PhD has conducted extensive research and written six books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how your personality style shapes who you are and who you love. She is currently using her knowledge of brain chemistry to discuss the neuroscience of business leadership and innovation.

Love is the most complicated algorithm.

When we think about what’s needed for a healthy relationship, we can quickly get lost in the requirements: time, energy, money, attention, emotions, sex, and the list goes on. If we’re not careful, we can begin to feel overwhelmed with the to-do’s and lose sight of the overarching goal: love.

It’s no secret that humans are motivated by sex.

If you’ve been mildly awake in the past year, you’ve sensed the panic in the air.
 
But the panic is the problem. People displace blame to externalities, so they can justify their own story. Certainly there are causes and social issues that are exempt from this analysis, but for the most part, we as a society underestimate our individual agency when we choose to believe that a government is stopping us from pursuing our goals.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by political commentator Ben Shapiro. Ben is the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire. As a controversial political figure, Ben is subject to much criticism and controversy. Today, we hear his thoughts on everything related to politics, the government, the education system, and much more.

  • Be aware of how media warps messaging 
  • Nothing besides military is solved by a federal government
  • Studies show that quality of education is more determined by factors like how the family treats education than any sort of government system
  • The problem is people looking to the federal government for solutions; localism is the solution
  • The single greatest predictor of poverty is being born into single motherhood
  • The focus of marriage has moved from the production and raising of kids to “are you in love?”
  • The whole reason society has an interest in marriage is to make sure there’s a mom and dad in the home
  • When dating, figure out values not common ground

(click to tweet)

In business, regardless of your product or service, an effective online strategy is essential to your success.

Whether that means a well-designed website that converts visitors into customers, or an engaging social media presence that dialogues with customers - it’s mandatory to infiltrate the Internet and show up oan people’s screens if you want to succeed in today’s business world.

However, having the intention to do that and actually doing it are two different things. Fortunately today, we are joined by the best internet marketer around; no person is better at driving traffic than Neil Patel.

(click to tweet)

Points to Keep In Mind
  • Don’t go for the big guys and instead seek out smaller clients
  • If you are looking to launch a physical product, use GoogleTrends to find what holes are in the market and opportunities
  • Investing is a long-term game, especially with currency and real estate
  • K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple and Stupid
  • Helping investors for free and building authentic relationships is the easiest way to make money
  • Scratch their back before you ask them to scratch yours
  • “The man who chases two rabbits catches none.” Focus and be very good at one thing 
  • Don’t act like a stranger (“Nice to e-meet you!”) in cold-emails to CEO. If he/she forwards internally, the new point-of-contact will assume you two know each other
  • An important element in a cold email is to ask for them to forward it: “If you can, please forward this to the person in charge of marketing so that I don’t waste any more time.”
  • For writers, use Udemy and Google Trends to find what topics people are interested in 
  • Get a superpower and build around that superpower
  • Figure out what you do like by figuring out what you don’t like
  • If you’re going to invest, think long-term strategies. Things go up like crazy, and they go down like crazy, the way you win is by thinking long

Today we are joined by Russell Brunson, owner of ClickFunnels.com, a website-builder that has sales funnels cooked into it—so that you can do one thing very easily and well: get customers landing on your website immediately.

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Extrovert + introvert make best business partners - read Working Together by Michael Eisner if seeking advice on business partnership
  • Best headline: How To [Insert Good Thing] Without [Insert Bad Thing]

  • Put $10 in Facebook ads behind videos of you endorsing your product - those who don’t make content lose 
  • Email campaigns will never be replaced
  • Good copywriting isn’t just the right words. It’s putting the right things in the right place
  • The most powerful word in the English language is “imagine” 
  • To be able to sell to the masses, you have to understand people’s false beliefs and shatter them
  • The three false beliefs people have are about: 1) their need for the product, 2) their internal ability to use the product, and then 3) how external factors will influence their use of the product

“Emotional intelligence is knowing how to control your own emotions in sync with also reading how others feel about you.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)
Great marketing requires a storytelling finesse. 
This is because audiences are smart, and can detect the tricks you might be trying to play. Say your video’s call-to-action is too explicit; a viewer will see that and turn the other way. Or if the product’s need is not rooted in enough emotional weight, the potential customer might not feel incentivized enough to purchase. Whatever the case may be, the cure to this is to tell relatable stories. 
A relatable story is an emotional story. From the failure stories to the love stories, if the core of the messaging is rooted in something that the viewer or reader can relate to, the storytelling becomes much easier. No longer are you tiptoeing through the tripwires in the potential customer’s head; he or she is on the same page and will inevitably feel motivated to buy your product. 
On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are taking a close look at relatability. In a conversation with my brother, we discuss all things related to storytelling, marketing, and interpersonal relations. How can you be more relatable in each of these domains is the question we answer in today’s episode.

“Anything you can do to make people see themselves in your story will automatically connect them with you. Next time a police officer pulls you over, make him see himself in the driver’s seat.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)
Points to Keep In Mind

  • Being real is being relatable
  • When trying to get what you want, present your need in a way that people can relate to
  • The Kardashians are successful because their family dysfunction, at its core, is relatable
  • Love is the most relatable theme in any marketing or storytelling material
  • Everyone can relate to being hurt, and the vulnerability that creates
  • You have to make the person see yourself in your shoes
  • People relate to the failure story; another reason to launch businesses and fail, it will help you relate in the future
  • Emotional intelligence is the soft skills, far different than the IQ they teach in school
  • If you’re ever losing the crowd, say “I want to tell a story about someone close to me who betrayed me”
  • Optimism bias causes a person to believe that they are at a lesser risk of experiencing a negative event compared to others

You can either be right or rich.

“The problem is we have not structured our medicine to look at it in a holistic, global way.” - Dr. Kim
(click to tweet)

You can’t stop aging. 
And that’s a good thing. There are many important benefits that come from aging. Our brain develops, our muscles form, and our systems mature. But at some point during the aging process, it turns on us and our body begins to break down. 
Right now, depending on the ailment, we respond with treatment. Physical therapy for the injured back, blood-thinners for hypertension, and a new diet for diabetes. But scientists today are learning how to respond before the ailment presents itself. And as our technology continues to grow exponentially more powerful, the question of, “Can we live to 700?” becomes less and less unreasonable. 
On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by gerontologist Dr. Paul H. Kim MD to discuss how realistic living to 700 will be. Dr. Kim’s expertise in genetics, aging, and hematology helps us determine how to best approach aging in the healthiest way possible.

  • VO2 max training looks at how efficiently your system burns calories

When we pursue our entrepreneurial dreams, we must do our due diligence to have the best chance at success.

  • As you rise in wealth, prepare for betrayal by developing thick skin

Sales textbooks say the same thing.
Focus on the key benefits. Provide value. Don’t hesitate on the ask. The more we read these bulletpoints, the more we learn about ‘how to sell.’ But are these lessons really helping us get our product or service inside people’s doors?
The answer is no. On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Anik Singal, founder of e-learning company Lurn, to learn the real truth to sales. Anik’s insights spread across many different domains of business: from picking yourself up out of rock bottom to making deals in the boardroom, we can take our entrepreneur game to the next level from learning Anik’s story.

“Most people think they need to be Batman in a sales situation. Instead, position yourself as Robin and make the thing you’re selling Batman.” - Anik Singal

(click to tweet)

Points to Keep In Mind
  • You can tell who your real friends are in failure
  • Failure provokes introspection; take note of your answers to “Why?” during this time period
  • Don’t let ego get in the way of your methodology during times of success; do the risk analysis
  • Listen to your mentors
  • Study your past patterns/cycles to figure out what was behind times of success and failure
  • Implement and take action
  • Hire how many people can be supervised, not how many people you can hire 
  • The introduction of an ad needs to grab attention by answering: what’s in it for you
  • Position yourself as Robin and make the thing you’re selling Batman
  • Integrate storytelling to create connection, not credibility
  • We live in the age of interactive marketing; the day of direct marketing is gone
  • Use content to deliver value and build credibility
  • Make your content linear: lists or diagrams
  • Aim for 3-5 ‘Aha moments’; any more will be exhausting for your audience, any less will be disengaging
  • Integrate reason-respecting bias to shed perspective on the price of your product
  • The purpose of the pitch is to ask for a sale, but it’s really to provide value
  • Copywriting is not about trigger-words; it’s a sequence of a specific words that create a story 
  • The best e-commerce content is a demo of the product

Success has no singular definition.

For some, it’s a number in the bank account. For others, it’s a feeling of happiness and fulfillment. And for many others, it’s somewhere in between these two ideas. There is no right or wrong definition of success; thus, we must evaluate it holistically before driving ourselves towards any version of it.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by the billionaire, Mark Cuban, to discuss what it takes to reach his level of success. As a young 20-something, after discovering that he was skilled at technology, Cuban founded his first company, MicroSolutions. Since then, he’s gone on to forging a net worth of over $3 billion. He is the star of Shark Tank, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the author of How to Win at the Sport of Business, and a source of knowledge for all of us to tap into.

“I’d be lying if I said I knew I was going to be a billionaire or that I thought it was even possible. It never crossed my mind. I just found whatever it took to motivate me.” - Mark Cuban

Points to Keep In Mind

We all want to make more money.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to manage our emotions. In the pursuit of profit, we can often become overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, and any other crippling feelings.

With success comes the limelight.

And when people see you, they form an opinion. This is the unfortunate reality of achievement and accolades. When you garner success, public perception becomes something you must pay attention to. And if we don’t know how to properly sift through it, we will likely be driven crazy by the negative noise.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are talking about responding to our haters. When we are just starting out, this is something that we most likely don’t have to worry about. However, once our career starts to gain momentum, we must be equipped to keep our eyes on the prize and not become distracted by the haters.

Tune in to this episode to form a healthy relationship with the people trying to steer you off course.

People lie, but numbers don’t.

Part 2: What My 99 Year-Old Grandma Can Teach Us About Love, History, and Government
00:33:04
Studying history sheds light on our present-day. Our governmental systems don’t seem so flawed when we recognize that it’s been this way forever. Our dating habits no longer feel influenced by technology when we talk to an elder who made the same mistakes we did. Our life as a whole feels like a repeated beat, which brings relief to those of us who question our everyday.

Once you tap into your own calling and curiosity, the world opens up and you discover your skills by listening to yourself.

Great marketing requires a storytelling finesse. This is because audiences are smart, and can detect the tricks you might be trying to play. Say your video’s call-to-action is too explicit; a viewer will see that and turn the other way. Or if the product’s need is not rooted in enough emotional weight, the potential customer might not feel incentivized enough to purchase. Whatever the case may be, the cure to this is to tell relatable stories.

Dr. David Buss: Why Understanding Evolutionary Psychology Will Get You Rich
03:06:19

“We evolved in small groups, and all groups have status hierarchies. From an evolutionary perspective, reproductively relevant resources always accrue to those with the highest status.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

It’s no secret that a greater understanding of people will lead you to more success in business.

From hiring to collaborating to managing to pitching, almost every touchpoint of business involves interacting with people. And if you’re not interacting, you are most likely working on your product that will ultimately affect or influence people. Thus, a greater understanding of human behavior and psychology will undoubtedly help you take your business to the next level.

But how you choose to learn about human behavior is what will determine your level of knowledge and ultimately separate you from the competition. And that is why we are so focused on evolutionary psychology. To study evolutionary psychology is to understand the human being from the core; how did we evolve over the past hundreds of millions of years to be the way we are today.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains how the principles of evolutionary psychology can be applied to business.

“Aside from intelligence, conscientiousness is the best single predictor of work performance.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Try to raise the status of your product
  • Speak at conferences, no matter how big or small; reach out to the person in charge and say you will blast your email list
  • Host networking events at your house once a month and invite people you want to connect with
  • Machiavellianism is a trait in people who pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy
  • Narcissism is a sense of entitlement and skewed value of others vs. value of themselves (welfare-tradeoff ratio)
  • Agreeableness is flexibility, patience, gentleness, and forgiveness
  • Conscientiousness is diligence, prudence, organization, and perfection
  • High psychopathy scores are void of empathy and impermeable to learning how to improve
  • Entrepreneurs score the worst on dark triad tests
  • Narcissism is tied to creativity and intelligence
  • Biggest red flags in long-term mate: high neuroticism or low agreeableness
  • Neuroticism is tied to people who cannot handle stress well
  • Surround yourself with people who are most things normal
  • The most powerful entrepreneurs are the most normal people
  • Personality characteristics are half-heritable, half-environmental
  • Watch ads and outline the psychological elements that tap into the 25 cognitive biases
    • The Lollapalooza Effect is when so many cognitive biases are being hit that people can’t help but buy
  • If you’re product isn’t selling, people aren’t being rewarded enough when being marketed

Billion Dollar Business Ideas: Augmented Reality with Jay Samit
00:12:37

“Augmented reality will eliminate the fear of others and make the world a better place.” - Jay Samit

(click to tweet)

Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed augmented reality technologies develop.

But products like Google Glass and QR codes made us skeptical of whether this technology had a place in the real world. Then there was Pokémon Go, which caught the world’s attention, made over $1 billion dollars, and made any AR-related doubts vanish from our minds.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by augmented reality-expert Jay Samit. He is the Independent Vice Chairman of Deloitte and the bestselling author of Disrupt You! Jay joins us today to widen our understanding of augmented reality. He shares what the latest developments are in AR technologies, and how they will undoubtedly influence our industries and lifestyles in the years to come.

Also you can listen to The Tai Lopez Show on Spotify! Click “Follow” and let me know what you think!

“We’ll now have more control over our environment because our environment will conspire with us to succeed. Not against us.” - Jay Samit

(click to tweet)

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Augmented reality isn’t just about adding to the environment, it’s about subtracting
  • An example of the implementation of AR in an industry is the airplane cargo-packers
    • AR glasses would make it 3D tetris and save airlines billions in jet fuel
  • AR softwares can tell if a person’s gait is suspicious or body temperature is high (risk for ebola)
  • Think about opportunity first and then worry about privacy
  • Tinder goggles would make profile apparent in real-life (ex: halo hologram above person)
  • Machine-learning allows the software to get smarter with each new data point
    • AR would allow people to always have access to all of mankind’s knowledge up until that point.
