Description

James Altucher interviews the world’s leading peak performers in every area of life. But instead of giving you the typical success story, James digs deeper to find the “Choose Yourself” story—these are the moments we relate to… when someone rises up from personal struggle to reinvent themselves. The James Altucher Show brings you into the lives of peak-performers: billionaires, best-selling authors, rappers, astronauts, athletes, comedians, actors, and the world champions in every field, all who forged their own paths, found financial freedom and harnessed the power to create more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

It's been a struggle in staffing in the restaurant industry, people rather work other jobs, that being in the restaurant industry. In this Make You a Millionaire episode, Jason Furst and I talk about the struggle, and why no one wants to work in the restaurant industry. However, the answer still eludes us. The only thing that we can do is to brainstorming ways to attract people, and/or ways to find and hire more staff for the restaurant.  On top of that, we came up with different ideas on how can we combine the customer data, with the point of sales, and reservation systems to make the whole dining experience much more seamless!

Has anyone theorized the possibility that only through the repeated extinction events on earth, were 'sentient' beings able to evolve? Meaning, as our mammalian species evolved so did our ability towards the mutation that grew our frontal cranial fat mass. More than that the ecosystems that came to be that also influenced our gene expressions to be what we are today. They would have also been directly affected by mass extinction events. Perhaps when we find out all down and up-chain expressions of our DNA could we then model all outcomes, especially as AI computation gets better. The best mystery ever...life.

I love your description of how America just simply tapped into our "primate" reward system better than other types of economies. It also makes me think of this passage in a different light - "For whoever has innovation, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever lacks innovation , even what he has will be taken away from him ".

This is Gold!!!! Some of my fav. points - model risk - diversification - Always think of the broadest possibility for your idea - And the big one, at least for me - Don't create for $$. Create for passion. You'll always be ahead of your competition if you love it more🤘🤘🤘🤘

Hey Robyn & James! Good to see you breaking out of your shell! Huge! Improvement in a short time! I hadn't realised until I only listened to your voice I instantly felt like you could be a cartoon voice on Adventure Time (our kids and I are re-watching the series) or Disney or anything really. Which leads me to an idea I had for you to do a voice over in a cartoon series you create on parenting. You could also spur this into a read along with the video with a children's book and that would give tons of advert clips ECT. thank you Cheers!
