John is not only a wildly successful entrepreneur but also a motivational speaker, philanthropist, movie producer and author of the brand-new book How Rich Asians Think. Just so you can appreciate the scale of what John has built, I'll share with you that John commands a sales force of nearly 6,800 agents. Whether you've read or haven't read Think and Grow Rich, keep reading because you are in for a treat to learn how an amazing book has changed an amazing person’s life and can change yours too.

Average sucks! My guest today, Michael Bernoff, would know. Not only is he above average in terms of goals he has set (and achieved) for himself, he is one of the many who have been labeled with a “disability,” only later to discover it’s a pretty special ability. He was told as a child that he had ADHD. Rather than treat it with medication, Michael accepts that while he may be hyper-alert to his surroundings, he also has the ability to laser-focus on things that have been important to him, like becoming an entrepreneur, and writing a book. Michael wrote a bestselling book called—you guessed it—Average Sucks! In this episode, we get into the concept of changing the world by first changing ourselves—something I believe in and practice every day. We talk about taking a meta approach to setting goals by first thinking about your thinking and being aware of your awareness. To understand more about what this expert speaker and motivator has to say about breaking through barriers and achieving your dreams, stay tuned for an inspiring episode.

If you do, then I advise you to stay tuned as Jaime and I reveal some truly powerful wealth-building strategies that will help you join the Seven Figure Club.
Over the past few decades, technology has radically reshaped the way we do business. Compare life today to that of someone living in the early 90s. It's like comparing a VHS tape to Netflix. Organizations are becoming more collaborative and less hierarchical. We're crowdsourcing powerful data and insights at the touch of a button. The blockchain is decentralizing and disrupting across all sectors- government, business, nonprofit. One man who's studied the impact of some of the biggest technological innovations of recent times is Don Tapscott. Don is the bestselling author of 16 books including Wikinomics, and Blockchain Revolution. He's executive chairman of the Blockchain Research Institute, and a member of the Order of Canada. Don regularly consults for prime ministers and presidents who want to understand what our current era of rapid technological change means for their citizens. And now, Don will help you prepare for the decades ahead too.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average person now holds ten different jobs before the age of 40. With the rise of AI and rapid technological change, this number is likely to increase in the future. The question is, how can you future-proof yourself in your chosen field while avoiding self-sabotaging behavior that can derail your career or get you laid off? Our guest in this episode is Carter Cast. Carter has reinvented himself several times, starting out as Marketing Manager at PepsiCo, moving on to become CEO of Walmart.com, and later a venture capitalist and professor. In his work life, he has been forced to confront some hard truths, which he documented in his book, The Right and Wrong Stuff: How Brilliant Careers Are Made and Unmade. Carter's formula for avoiding career disaster involves knowing yourself and your weaknesses, becoming more agile, and learning to control risky behaviors. As our work lives inevitably become less certain and more intellectually demanding, Carter's insights are essential for anyone who has a long-term career or business goals.
