Listen on

Episode notes

If you don't know who he is, Tim Ferriss is a best-selling author and host of one of the top podcasts out right now. One of his most popular books is called "Tribe of Mentors," where he asked world-class performers 11 questions (listed below) and recorded their answers. In this solo episode, I went through and answered each one myself. Enjoy!


(4:35) 1. What is the book (or books) you’ve given most as a gift, and why? Or what are one to three books that have greatly influenced your life?

(9:57) 2. What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last six months (or in recent memory)? My readers love specifics like brand and model, where you found it, etc.

(12:51) 3. How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a 'favorite failure' of yours?

(23:51) 4. If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it—metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions—what would it say and why? It could be a few words or a paragraph. (If helpful, it can be someone else's quote: Are there any quotes you think of often or live your life by?)

(29:17) 5. What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you've ever made? (Could be an investment of money, time, energy, etc.)

(35:06) 6. What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?

(37:19) 7. In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?

(43:19) 8. What advice would you give to a smart, driven college student about to enter the 'real world?' What advice should they ignore?

(48:03) 9. What are bad recommendations you hear in your profession or area of expertise?

(50:26) 10. In the last five years, what have you become better at saying no to (distractions, invitations, etc.)? What new realizations and/or approaches helped? Any other tips?

(55:55) 11. When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do? (If helpful: What questions do you ask yourself?)

**PS: If you could rate and review the podcast, it would mean the world to me and it would help get the word out to others just like us so we can continue building this amazing, one-of-a-kind community.**
