This week on THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL HIM & HER PODCAST…
( 0:55 ): Welcome back to TSC HIM & HER Show. #593: Today we’re sitting down with Alex Banayan, author of “The Third Door” and the youngest bestselling author in US History. Banayan hacked The Price is Right, won a sailboat, sold it, and used the money to fund his quest to learn from the world’s most innovative leaders. Over the course of his unprecedented journey, Banayan interviewed Bill Gates, Lady Gaga, Larry King, Maya Angelou, Steve Wozniak, Jane Goodall, Jessica Alba, Quincy Jones, and more. Alex joins us to talk about his experience learning from the world’s most successful people, the mistakes he made along the way & the one thing that every successful person has in common. He also gets into his stories: how he chased down Steven Spielburg in Italy, his unsuccessful experience with Warren Buffet, his rejections and his successful interviews. Finally we get into what he’s learned after 12 years of studying success, and the common denominator of both successful and unsuccessful people.
