Ryan Levesque is the author of the best-selling book Ask, and creator of the Ask Formula, one of the most important paradigm shifts to influence online marketing in the last decade. That's impressive in and of itself, but Ryan is also a truly self-made man. He has found himself starting from nothing more than once in his life, and has ingeniously reimagined himself and his circumstances to rise to the top time and time again.

From paying his own way through Brown, to Scrabble tile jewelry, the great success of Ask, and everything in between, Ryan is truly an inspiration.

Key Points

At 5:47 - While everyone agrees that the cream rises to the top, Mitch goes into why he thinks that now is still a fantastic time for indie publishers to make their mark.

At 12:46 - Mitch talks about what he thinks would happen if he were to have just now started his blog, and contrasts that with the wild success of others who are newer to the online realm.

At 18:46 - Danny and Mitch discuss Seth Godin's book, 'The Dip,' and talk about how to know the difference between a dip, and a dead end.

At 25:18 - Exit strategies, what Billy Idol and Mitch Joel have in common, and how lunacy could easily factor in.

Tad Hargrave has made a career of teaching business skills to the people who are on a mission to change the world – which is hard, because they're the same people who tend to be most resistant to the concept of business! Tad manages to walk the line gracefully through his work at Marketing For Hippies, with an incisive sensitivity that I know you'll appreciate. On today's show, we dig into the deep meaning of what sales is really about, and reach some surprising conclusions.
