DTD #52: Seek Your Dream Life, Not a Dream Job

Spoiler alert: It should be illegal for two people to have this much fun together. If you’re not prepared to witness what happens when two best friends get together after not seeing each other for two weeks, this episode is not for you.

This episode is fueled by bone broth and is anchored around the book The Third Door by Alex Banayan. In his book, Alex shares his epic adventure to interview some of the most successful people in the world.

From hacking The Price Is Right to interviewing Bill Gates to shadowing the legendary Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, Alex plays above his means because he has the courage to ask. He consistently asks for what he wants, faces his fears, and Dares to Dream!

His story is incredibly inspiring, not because he is some wonder-kid with an IQ of 180, but because he seems like a normal dude who is wholeheartedly chasing something that matters to him. His story aligns perfectly with the spirit of The Dare to Dream Podcast—his journey fired us up.

Join us as we dive into:

—Why you should seek what truly EXCITES you

—Why you should go all-in on what makes YOU unique

—Why you should fit your job into your life, not your life into a job

—The power of saying yes to things that scare you, even if you have no idea (at the time) how to figure it out

—Why the best conversations often happen in the Uber/taxi

—What success means to us at this moment

And much more!

If you’re looking for some laughs, some inspiration, and genuine human connection, look no further.

Come on in, the bone broth is nice n’ hot!
