RWR-027: Sex, Science, and The Art of Risk with Kayt Sukel

On today’s show, I talk with a passionate traveler and science writer from Houston, Texas by the name of Kayt Sukel. Some of the topics that she often talks about range from love to politics to sex to neuroscience and everything in between. Her work has appeared in USA Today, The Washington Post, National Geographic Traveler, and several other well-known publications. She’s the author of two books, she does public speaking at events like TEDMED, she claims to overshare on Twitter, and if you asked Forbes, they would say she knows more about sex than you do. Without giving it all away, hit play and listen to my conversation with Kayt!

RWR-026: What It Means To Be An Expert

“To be really successful at anything, you don’t have to be the best. Being the best is too hard and there’s only one person who gets to be that. It’s too elite. You can be an expert if you know a little more than the average person. If you read 3 books on any topic or learn that amount of information on a skill or industry, you can make a good living at it on your own. You just have to want to do it. If you’re passionate about it, the money will follow.”

Featured books:

Will It Fly by Pat Flynn. As you probably know, I’m a big fan of Pat as I’ve mentioned him in several of the episodes, so it was a no-brainer to add this book to my Amazon wishlist. About a week ago, I jumped on a Skype call with my friend Jason Reaves from the Live Life Loudly podcast. After helping him for a couple hours, he said he wanted to thank me by sending me this book. Thanks again Jason, it was much appreciated!

So it showed up a few days later and I started reading it instantly. It’s already adding a lot of value but the coolest part is the free online companion course that comes with it. This book is all about testing your next business idea at the beginning so you don’t waste a lot of time and money. Most people just build something and hope people want it. You know that old quote, “If you build it, they will come.” That’s terrible biz advice and that’s why their business usually fails. So if this sounds awesome to you, just visit riskwithoutregret.com/willitfly and order this book today!

The Art of Risk by Kayt Sukel. I actually interviewed Kayt last week for an upcoming episode of the podcast. We dig deep into the science of why certain people take huge risks on a daily basis and why some people never take risks at all. Her book comes out March 1st but you can pre-order it today (if you’re reading this before 3/1/16). Once it officially releases, you can buy it at the same link. So if you’re ready to learn more about your brain on risks, just go to riskwithoutregret.com/artofrisk.

Things like not having to set an alarm clock all the way to inspiring others and so many other good ones.

RWR-023: Michael Carbone on Being an Ironman & Hosting Successful Webinars

Today’s guest is Michael Carbone. He’s originally from Canada where he went down the typical path of going to college and getting a corporate job. You know, just doing the standard 9-5 grind that so many people do. Everything seemed great from the outside, but inside, he was feeling unfulfilled. Unfortunately, most people stay in this position their whole lives and never make a change. But Michael was different.

He’s going to share his story about how an Ironman race changed his life, how teaching others to win more at online poker was a gamechanger, why webinars are so lucrative, as well as using fear to force you to take more action in your life. And towards the end, he talks about traveling to Paris a few months ago… the day after the terrorist attacks. He elaborates on how that experience can relate to business, as well as showing you how fragile life is and why you should live your life to the fullest everyday.

This is definitely one of my favorite conversations so far, and I know you’re going to take several things away from this episode. Enjoy!
