If building wealth was simply about math, we'd all be independently wealthy because we all know how to add and subtract. Seeing as how we're not all independently wealthy, there must be something else at play. And, it might surprise you to know that it's you that has the potential to become your own worst enemy.

Today, I'm joined by repeat guest, Dr. Daniel Crosby to talk about human psychology and why it hinders your ability to build the level of wealth you're after. We cover how your behavior dictates investing success, how our physiology and psychology work against us, how a "contrarian mindset" will help us succeed, and how to invest - the right way.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How behavior dictates investing success
  • 3 traits all investment strategies must posses
  • How a contrarian mindset could improve your investment portfolio
  • How to balance logic and emotion in investing
  • How financial markets help you keep score in your life
  • Why overestimating our abilities hinders performance
  • How good behavior can be expensive but necessary
  • The power of a financial coach
  • How "hedonic adaptation" keeps us from being happy with more money
  • How "action bias" hurts our portfolios
  • How our social nature has created incredible amounts of wealth
  • How our physiology and psychology can work against us
  • How noise and chaos is our enemy and how to tune it out
  • The need to overcome arrogance and ego in investing
  • Why "rule-based behavioral investing" is so powerful

 

DR. DANIEL CROSBY

Today I am joined by repeat guest, Dr. Daniel Crosby.

He is a trained psychologist, behavioral finance expert, and asset manager. Specifically, he studies market psychology to understand the nature of why we do what we do and how it impacts our ability to invest successfully in financial markets.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and his ideas have made him a critical voice and expert in the financial community.

As a former financial advisor myself, I've been connected with Dr. Crosby for years and have applied many of his ideas and teachings into my previous financial practice.

He brings a unique and refreshing perspective to building wealth and one that has the potential to help you finally invest successfully.

Mar 12, 2019

If you're anything like me, you're fed up with the noise and nonsense we see in mainstream and social media. It seems that everywhere we turn and with everything we say, people are looking for reasons to be upset and/or offended.

My guest today does not allow that to back him down or dictate the conversations he wants to have on some very important subjects everyone else is too afraid to talk about, from sexual orientation, religion, masculinity, politics and just about every other topic we're "not supposed to talk about."

His name is Chad Prather and, today, we talk about our responsibility to speak up, calling boys into manhood, the rise of the victim culture, and the power of being politically incorrect.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The power of political incorrectness
  • Our responsibility to speak up
  • How to become a more effective communicator
  • The rise of the "victim culture"
  • The delusion of social media
  • Overcoming the vocal minority
  • The danger of identity politics
  • Calling boys into manhood
  • Losing the ability to connect face-to-face
  • Learning to be satisfied but not content
  • The power of storytelling
  • Re-orienting a generation of weak people
  • Developing a vision
  • Taking risks
  • Fostering courage and confidence

CHAD PRATHER

My guest today is a man that won't need an introduction for a lot of you.

His name is Chad Prather and you may know him as the political cowboy. But just in case you don't already know, Chad is a comedian and a political commentator willing to discuss (and have some fun with) some of the most polarizing topics in society today.

He's been entertaining people on TV as early at 6 years old and hasn't let up since. He's been featured on Fox New, A&E, CNN, MSN, and The Blaze. In fact, he's everywhere. So much so that I can list all the things he's up to.

That said, I'm excited to have had the chance to sit down and talk with someone who I admire for not only his perspective and his interesting approach to sharing it but his willingness to do so in an environment that seems to be increasingly wanting to shut down these types of conversations.

There is no question that we are increasingly committing ourselves to digital use. The fact is that our use of digital technology has presented us with some opportunities never before available in the history of mankind. But that doesn't mean it doesn't pose a very serious threat to our sanity and well-being.

Today, I talk with repeat guest, Cal Newport, to talk about some of those threats and, more importantly, how we harness the power of digital technology while minimizing the risk that inherently comes with it. We talk about the philosophy of digital minimalism, why you ought to consider a "digital de-clutter," how to keep from losing control to technology, and how to minimize digital use while maximizing your life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What is digital minimalism
  • How to develop a philosophy of technology use
  • How to incorporate a digital de-clutter
  • Why you should place priority on long-term meaning over short-term satisfaction
  • How we lose control to technology

  • Why clutter is costly
  • How to develop a personal technology process
  • How we're beginning to see mental health issues associated with technology use
  • Strategies for overcoming digital addiction
  • How tech. companies capitalize on the "attention economy"
  • Why social approval is so compelling, even if we know the dangers
  • Why real-world interaction is so much more powerful than digital interaction
  • Why every man needs to strategize his free time
  • How to utilize the idea of "slow media" in your life

CAL NEWPORT

Gentlemen, today I have the honor of introducing you to my friend and repeat guest, Mr. Cal Newport.

Cal is an MIT graduate and a professor of computer science at Georgetown University and, in addition to that, he is extremely interested in the intersection of technology and society.

I know many of you have read his books, including, So Good They Can't Ignore you, Deep Work, and his latest New York Times Bestseller, Digital Minimalism.

I've been fascinated with his work since I first read, So Good They Can't Ignore you. In fact, many of his theories and ideas have been used in my life to build this movement, Order of Man. I'm not sure I would have had so much success with the organization without incorporating some of his ideas, including the ones he'll be sharing with us today.

Confidence is something a lot of men struggle with. Unfortunately, it's also something a lot of men believe you either have or you don't. That just isn't the case. As with any skill, it can be developed through intentional action. Here are ten steps to foster more confidence:

  1. Have a deep, emotionally charged vision for your life
  2. Be very specific on what you want to accomplish and why
  3. Tie that to small, actionable steps you can take daily
  4. Surround yourself with those who are achieving what you want to achieve
  5. Familiarize yourself with your fear in controlled environments
  6. Develop and build upon small wins
  7. Find people who will hold you accountable
  8. Don’t make excuses – call your fear for it for what it is
  9. Redefine Failure
  10. Weigh the Cost

Every single one of us has to start somewhere. When we look at the guys at the top, however, it's easy for us to jump to the conclusion that they've always been there. What we fail to see is the years of toil, effort, and struggle that those men at the top endured along the way.

No one ever accused me of being funny but that doesn't mean I don't see the value of humor and comedy in life and in society in general.

Today, I'm joined by my good friend, Keith Yackey, who over the past couple of years has transitioned from the corporate stage to the comedy stage.

KEITH YACKEY

My guest today is my friend, Keith Yackey.

He's been extremely successful in the corporate and event world, building an 8-figure investment firm in just two short years.

But the reason I wanted to have him on the podcast is for his more recent endeavors, stand up comedy. It's something that has always been fascinating (and scary) to me so, to watching Keith go from, comedy newcomer to performing in some of the biggest comedy clubs in the world, has been incredible to watch.

I hope you enjoy today's conversation with Keith as he shares with us how to become funnier and why it's so important.

A couple months ago when I was out in Maine, I had the opportunity to sit down with an absolutely incredible man who went from lying nearly dead on the battlefield of Afghanistan to losing portions of both his arms and legs to now running an organization dedicated to serving and developing injured members of our military.

As many of you know, I have begun to immerse myself more deeply in the world of hunting. I've always been fascinated with the life and mindset of a hunter but never grew up being too exposed to it. Now that I am, my mind has been opened to what it truly means to be not only a hunter but a conservationist as well.

Today, I am joined by a man I have been watching for a long time, Mr. Donnie Vincent. He is a film-maker, a conservationist, a hunter, and one of the most trusted voices when it comes to the symbiotic relationship between the hunter and the hunted.

We talk about we have not evolved out of hunting, how ignorance around hunting is hurting all of us, how to become better stewards over our resources, and how to become the hunter.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why we should pursue our passions
  • How to become a good steward over our resources
  • The problems with factory farming
  • Why we have not evolved out of hunting
  • Why we need to give back to nature
  • The relationship between the hunter and the hunted
  • The seriousness and gravity of the role of a hunter
  • How ignorance around hunting is hurting all of us
  • How to rectify the odds between hunting and conservation
  • The symbiotic relationship between everything
  • Why we owe it to the animal to become the best hunter possible
  • Why we should not pick sides as a hunter or non-hunter
  • How we can better self-regulate
  • The power of asking serious questions about food sustainability
  • Why education is the core of conversationism


DONNIE VINCENT

My guest today is Donnie Vincent and he is someone I deeply admire and respect regarding his work with the wilderness.

This is a man who has truly immersed himself in the connection with nature and is one of the leading voices and champions of sustainable and ethical hunting.

He is a biologist, hunter, explorer, conservationist, sportsman, and filmmaker. But one of his most powerful pursuits from my perspective is that of "storyteller."

Donnie creates amazing films documenting his journey into the wilderness, his connection with nature, and the hunts he pursues.

If you've ever considered hunting (or already are), following Donnie should be an absolute requirement.
