In this episode of Habits and Hustle, I chat with the legendary Chevy Chase about the comedy industry’s best kept secrets. From jazz piano to drumming, we dive into his hidden talents and his first big break in comedy - setting the stage for a life filled with laughter and unforgettable moments.  Moving from comedy gold to silver screen gems, we lift the veil on Chevy’s versatile acting journey. Celebrated for his quick comedic timing, Tony shares his favorite characters, his comedy influences, and the strategic choices he made throughout his career. Get ready for some exclusive insights into some truly classic cult films. Chevy Chase is a comedian, actor, and writer. From being a key cast member on the first season of “Saturday Night Live” to having his late-night talk show in 1993, this actor has given people a run for their money. Chase has a career that spans over five decades. He’s been in 101 films and television shows, written 14 productions, and produced a T.V. show and a documentary.  What we discuss: 02:36: Was Chevy always funny? 11:29: How did Chevy come up with the idea of his show? 22:38: Why did Chevy leave Saturday Night Live? 26:41: What movies is Chevy really known for? 31:05: How would the writing work? 33:25: How did Chevy pick his roles? 44:47: Did Chevy ever regret turning down a role? 55:50: What are the coolest things Chevy has got himself involved in? 01:08:20: What is Chevy’s morning routine like? 01:11:24: Does Chevy have any hobbies? 01:12:33: What is Chevy working on now? 01:13:32: Where did Chevy get his nickname? Key takeaways: When you have a natural talent in an artistic field, it’s easy to fall into the mold that executives may want you to morph yourself to fit into. However, the reason why people in the creative field are successful is because of their unique abilities. Thus, it’s important to adopt a “ I don’t give a sh*t” attitude and express yourself in the way that is natural to you and which you are known for. People tend to have a certain affinity towards specific types of arts such as paintings or music, but snub people who watch too much TV. What people with this attitude fail to realize is that watching TV is how you can admire and appreciate the work of the actors, directors, and writers that poured their hearts into bringing this piece of art to life for their spectators. Thus, you shouldn’t feel guilty about sitting down to watch TV if it’s to enjoy a good movie or TV show - it’s simply another form of art to appreciate.  Thank you to our sponsors: Ketone IQ (HVMN): You can save 30% off your first subscription order of Ketone-IQ at Therasage: Head over to and use code Be Bold for 15% off Learn more from Chevy: Website: Instagram: My links: Website: Instagram: @therealjencohen  Learn more about your ad choices.

Do you let the feeling of “not feeling like it” get in the way of your goals?    In this solo episode of the Habits and Hustle podcast, I chat about the importance of focusing on how you will feel in the future, after you do something that you know you should do, instead of focusing on how you feel in the moment.

What makes an entrepreneur a real one? In this episode of the Habits and Hustle podcast, I chat with you about how it seems like everyone is calling themselves an entrepreneur.

Is following your passion really the way to go if you want to become rich?  In this episode of Habits and Hustle, I chat with Professor Scott Galloway, our esteemed guest on this episode, who turned a major disappointment – being turned away from UCLA tryouts – into a driving force that sparked profound personal growth and transformation. A renowned author and motivational speaker, Tony shares tales of his struggles and successes, unearthing invaluable insights about commitment, finding your niche, and embracing personal evolution. Professor Galloway explains how success isn't merely about intelligence. It's a complex blend of risk-taking, aggression, sales skills, seizing opportunities, and living life to the fullest. He also explains how it's not all about personal journeys - we also navigate the broader societal landscape, examining the profound impact technology has on relationships, dating, and socialization, as well as the loneliness epidemic that’s silently wreaking havoc in our society. Scott Galloway is a Professor of Marketing at NYU Stern School of Business where he teaches Brand Strategy and Digital Marketing to MBA students and is the author of the Digital IQ Index ®, a global ranking of prestige brands' digital competence. In 2012, Professor Galloway was named "One of the World's 50 Best Business School Professors". What we discuss: (0:00:01) - Following Passion and Personal Growth (0:10:54) - The Correlation Between Intelligence and Success (0:15:12) - Moving to London and Life Experiences (0:26:50) - Evolution of Courses and Personal Reflections (0:31:16) - Technology's Impact on Human Relationships (0:44:04) - Challenges and Solutions for Young Men (0:51:10) - Technology's Impact on Relationships and Mental Health (1:03:36) - Social Media Impact, Fitness Importance (1:10:50) - Coping With Depression and Hollywood Frustrations (1:21:13) - Book Promotion and Appreciation Key takeaways: The truth about the common advice of “following your passion” is that the person giving you this advice is already rich. They also most likely made their billions in iron or smelting. Ideally, find something you like that has 90 plus percent employment rate, which things like acting, modeling, sports do not have. Then, commit to becoming great at it. So if you find something you're good at and you start making money at it, the passion will follow.  The correlation between intelligence and success exists, but it tops out. A person who's got a 120 IQ is much more likely to be successful than someone at 80. But above that, it flatlines. Plus, when you get really, really smart, it actually turns on you and that is because you become so thoughtful and see so many downsides to everything. One thing that entrepreneurs have is they’re too stupid to know we're going to fail.  To learn more about Professor Scott: Website: Instagram: My links: Website: Instagram: @therealjencohen  Learn more about your ad choices.

She also discusses her journey to mental health recovery, shedding light on the importance of therapy and taking control of one's life.

She also talks about how her product ended up on the shelves of major retailers like Walmart and Target and shares her plans for the future.  Mari Llewellyn is the founder of Bloom Nutrition and creator of the fitness app, Slay.

However, there are no such things as hacks and shortcuts when it comes to success. Your only option is to do the hard work and it’s truly the only thing that works. So many people in business wait for the perfect moment or until they have permission from someone. However, if you actually want to succeed, you need to pull the trigger and just launch it. You will learn a lot more from getting started than you ever will from trying to perfect a product or service. When it comes to marketing a brand on social media through influencer marketing, it’s best to give the creatives you hire the opportunity to be creative. The truth is that content creators know their audience better than you ever will and have the secret formula to pushing your product to their audience profile. By restricting their creativity, the content which introduces your products may fall flat and not obtain the results you were hoping for given that it may not resonate with their audience.  To learn more about Mari: Instagram: Website: and Podcast: My links: Website: Instagram: @therealjencohen  Learn more about your ad choices.

Sounds like an intriguing discussion on modern dating dynamics and the impact of social media! The question about whether someone's interest wanes if they stop watching your stories is relatable with site, and I'm curious to hear the insights shared in the episode. Navigating relationships in the digital age brings a whole new set of challenges, and the topics of curating feeds, muting accounts, and their effects on our interactions are definitely worth exploring. Looking forward to gaining some valuable perspectives from this episode! 📱💬
