The 100th Episode! Inside the Heads of Top Money-Makers, Investors, & Celebrity Entrepreneurs
Welcome to a very special, incredible and exciting edition of the Get WealthFit! Show. I can't believe it's been 100 shows already since we started. We've covered so much ground and I am so excited for the future and what's to come. If this is your first or very early show in your repertoire, welcome. I want to let you know you are in for a treat. I'd like to ask you this question. What if I could take the best segments from all of our best shows, from our 100 shows here at the Get WealthFit Show and pull out the highlights and give them to you? That's exactly what I am going to do with 100 because it's a very special thing.
I also want to do something special as well. I wanted to take you a little bit behind the scenes, some of the things we don't get to talk about here on the show. Some of these shows that we have recorded, it’s not just me in a room recording the shows. Some of them required me getting on plane. A couple of examples of places I've been to. I've been to a camp in the middle of Texas, an hour outside of San Antonio, two flights, a car ride to get there, to interview three very special guests on the show and it was completely worth it. I flew all the way to New York to meet up with Danica Patrick, which I'll tell you a very interesting and embarrassing story, which I know you're going to love because it's one of those behind the scenes stories. I went to Vegas, who doesn't like going to Vegas for a little fun and excitement? Then all the way to Orlando.
We're based here in San Diego. All of these shows had a little different flare. We've done them in expos where there are 2,000 people and it's hard to hear. We've done them in the sound booth in San Diego in Pacific Beach. We've also done them in our studio as well where we record the courses here. I've also done them in green rooms and I say that with a big smile on my face. I want to share with you the humiliating and embarrassing story of me of interviewing Danica Patrick. I flew to New York and set all this up. I got there and I said, “I'm here for the interview.” The lady says to me, “Who are you?”
A direct shot to the ego, but that's okay because I rebounded. I said, “Remember, I'm the guy we were going to do an interview.” She's like, “I thought that was remote.” I'm like, “No, here I am.” I flew all the way from San Diego to be there, in the snow which was a crazy flight. Nonetheless I get there and she's like, “Give me five minutes, I'll go see what we can make happen.” I was a little nervous because I told the whole company, “We're getting Danica on the show,” and so everyone is expecting this. I'm expecting this. It’s an emotional roller coaster. She pops back out and she's like, “I can get you eight minutes.” I'm like, “Done. I'll take it.”
Just get your foot in the door. I go get my stuff and I'm in the room now. I'm frazzled because it's up and down, “Is this going to happen? Is it not going to happen?” Finally, I get into the room and I've got eight minutes, which I've prepared questions for an hour. It's like, “What do I do now? I get to do this on the spot.” One of the goals of the social media team here was to get Danica to sign a book so we can give it away. On our social media, we give away autographed books from the guests that come here and the trainers that come to WealthFit. Be on the hunt and be on the lookout for that. We get some fun ones that we give away.
I tell her, “I'd love for you to sign this book. Are you okay with that?” She's like, “Yeah.” She's going to sit down on the couch, getting ready for the interview. I go to hand her the book and in slow motion as if it were a Hollywood trailer, the book flies out of my hand. Time just slows down and I'm sitting there and I'm like, “This is not good.” It hits her in the calf and she says, “You just hit me with the book.” I'm the type of guy who love to prepare because I want to be ready for any scenario that happens. Can I think on my feet? Sure, I do that here on the Get WealthFit Show. I follow my curiosity but in a situation like that, especially something like she's going to cut the interview off because I hit her with a book. Luckily for me, something pops in my head. I say, “I'm just trying to make sure you're on your toes.” She laughed and I laughed, then the tension just dissipated from there. Those are the kinds of stories that sometimes you don't get to hear at the Get WealthFit Show or on podcasts or all sorts of things. That's the kind of stuff that happens here. I've shared that privately and now the whole world is going to know about it. If you see me, you can remind me about the Danica story that I shared with you.
I also want to give you a little heads up if this is your first or one of your first shows, we've had so many different people here on the show. I am so excited all around creating wealth in your life. When I mean wealth, it is money. This is Get WealthFit Show. We do talk about money and personal finance. We also talk about how to have an abundance of time. It's an abundance of money. It's an abundance of time and it's an abundance of impact. Impact can mean a lot of different things. Impact to start a charity, impact to do a passion project, impact to be a steward in your community, whatever impact means to you. For that reason, we get to interview a lot of different folks. I want to give you a little background on some of the titles of people that have come through here.
One being a professional race car driver. The winningest female race car driver of all time, Danica Patrick. We've had a top 100 tennis player. I'm a tennis nuts. I was excited to have a professional tennis player here and interview. A Heisman finalist and multiple NFL stars talking about how do they make money, how do they parlay their fame and fortune into success after the NFL. We talked about that. We've had an Olympic gold medalist, a SEAL Team Six leader, a Marine, TV personalities, CEOs of fast growth companies, New York Times bestselling authors, philanthropists, MMA fighters, doctors, an ER doctor at one of the craziest hospitals here in the United States, actors, Guinness Book World Record holders, special forces, celebrated investors, a teenager that has a seven-figure business, a vintner, a wine maker or owner of a winery. The inventor of the infomercial. We've had attorneys don't hold it against me. They've been incredible with their knowledge and scope and private bankers, filmmakers, a man who ran across America 100 marathons in 100 days and even a precious metal expert.
We've had a lot more than that but that was the list that I could share with you in the time given. We've got a diverse range, which means if you keep going to the same people over and over again to get your advice, you are going to get great advice if they are celebrated expert. However, we want to introduce you to people that you might not hear on money, on investing, on entrepreneurship. That is our mission here at the Get WealthFit Show and at WealthFit.com is to make the world's best education on money, investing and entrepreneurship accessible to everyone online and on demand. Especially if you're just getting to know the show and getting to know us. WealthFit is an online learning company dedicated to helping you boost your financial and entrepreneurial skills.
We invite you to check out a course or two or three. This show is to introduce you to folks and get your mind going. However, if you want tactical step by step, that's what our courses provide. Give it a look at WealthFit.com.
A lot of people ask me about the show what's my favorite episode? This is my answer now. These shows are like my kids. The stories are so fascinating. I fall in love with every person that comes through because it's the human condition. We've all have ups and downs. We all battled back from something, whether that's self-doubt or disease. What I hear from the most successful people that we get to interview here on the show is perseverance and how they overcame obstacles and roadblocks and the strategies, but also they're just like us.
They have to figure things out. Things aren't handed to these folks and they've got to reinvent. You've got to grow and expand. I don't have a favorite show. They're all my favorite shows. This was what made this particularly difficult, diving into each one of these shows to give you the best of the best. I want you to know in this show what I'm going to do is break this down into what we call the MILE. At WealthFit, we believe just like you go to a gym and get a trainer to make you fit, you need trainers to Get WealthFit. Conveniently, the categories that we cover are money, investing, lifestyle and entrepreneurship. You put that together and it is MILE, a very fit word.
Money, investing, lifestyle, which is personal development, which is growth, which is achievement, time management. It's the soft topic skills that all of us need to get to that next level, then entrepreneurship. I'm going to be breaking down this show into those four categories. If you love money, you're going to get some of that. If you love investing, we got that for you. If you love how can you get better routines, how can you grow as a person, we've got that. If you've always wanted to start a business and hear the entrepreneurial journey, we've got that for you. The big thing that I request of you is on Facebook and Instagram, we hang out there quite a bit. Let us know what’s your favorite part of this show is and any of the other shows, whether that's good, bad or ugly. We want to have a dialogue. We want you to engage.
I'm always curious to know who do you want to see on the show? That's how we roll here at to Get WealthFit Show. We want to serve you. We want to get your input. Let us know on social media what are you thinking about the show, who do you want to see? As I always like to say, be sure to share the wealth. If you love this show or any of the other shows and know someone that could benefit from it, definitely share it. What we're going to do is to give you a quick lay of the land. We're going to do the four different categories here. We will break it down into money, investing, lifestyle and entrepreneurship. Maybe investing is your thing. That's okay. I'm okay in this show if you want to fast forward to get to the category you like. There are so many takeaways that apply across the MILE. If I talk about investing, it’s likely you can benefit if you're into money and entrepreneurship and vice versa. These are lessons about how to be more successful in all areas of your life.
