    Hmmmmm! This episode made me rethink about my “self development website”. I built one with the intent of gathering all I’ve learned, and to share it with others. I was in the middle of writing an eBook about the same subject. After listening to this episode I was upset that your boy there said… “People selling an eBook, about something they know nothing about.” I felt embarrassed. Because I’m not successful yet! I thought about it for a few days and I went back and read the content of my website. I realized I never promoted that I WAS successful. I was promoting that others should do themselves a service and continue learning! I wiped the frown off my face, and focused on the deeper meaning of the conversation of this podcast. And said “eff it” and posted the eBook for sale on Amazon anyways. LOL

    Although this comment sounded negative. I really learned a whole lot on being true to my audience. Along with many other gems.

    I started listening to Podcasts about a year ago, and this has ALWAYS been my favorite! Thank you Justin & Joe!

    Thanks for the shout! I’ve only listened to the first part of this episode so far, but I’m pretty impressed with what Jordan had to say. I also like the non-douchy pua angle of his dating biz.

  3. Just listened to this on the commute… Great stuff!
