My friend Tai Lopez is a very interesting guy.
Tai is a true renaissance man.
Tai (pictured right) went from being a college dropout living with the Amish and working on Joel Salatin's farm (which we talk about in this podcast episode) to becoming a self made millionaire before the age of 30, while launching 12 multi-million dollar businesses in the process.
He is a member of MENSA: the high IQ society, a Certified Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant, Chartered Life Underwriter, and most importantly a student of life with a ton of books (5000 plus at the last count). In addition to his massive book collection, he is himself the author of several books on unrelated subjects such as dating, life insurance and modeling, and the voice of the brand new podcast “The Grand Theory of Everything“.
Tai was on Bravo's “The Millionaire Matchmaker” (his episode is the highest rated yet), is addicted to traveling (51 countries on 6 continents so far), and is also a student of salsa dancing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and playing classical piano. He lives in the Hollywood Hills, where he has a cold thermogenesis pool off his front porch.
Tai also has a good way of summing up books that would normally take you a long time to read. That’s wonderful for anyone who doesn’t have the time luxury to read lots of books (and you can consider his Book of the Day list a fantastic time-hacking technique).
A few weeks ago, I featured an article by Tai entitled “50 Secrets Of The World Longest Living People“, and in this podcast we go way above and beyond just living long. You'll learn:
-How Tai went from being a college dropout to living with the Amish…
-Why the Apache Indian tribe were some of the toughest people on earth…
-What farmers and ranchers know about toughness that we don't…
-How aligning your body with your natural circadian rhythms can make you tough…
-Tai's top techniques for getting tough…
-Tai's technique for getting through as many books as possible in as short a period of time…
Resources we discuss in this episode:
-Book: Michael Jordan: The Life
-Book: Peter Drucker: Managing Life
-Book: Poor Charlie's Almanack
-Book: Kon Tiki
