Tim Ferriss: The human guinea pig doesn’t want to be your role model

Tim Ferriss first found fame with his 2007 book "The 4-Hour Workweek." After taking a break from writing in 2012, he became an accidental podcast star with "The Tim Ferriss Show," which is approaching 200 million downloads. He sat down for an interview with Business Insider senior reporter Richard Feloni for this episode of "Success! How I Did It."

This hasn't been a typical year for Ferriss. He celebrated the 10th anniversary of "The 4-Hour Workweek," then decided to leave his successful "4-Hour" brand behind. He lost some friends, he got a lot of attention for talking about his struggle with depression, and he turned 40. He's out with a new book, "Tribe of Mentors," in which he collects advice from 140 successful people, a project that was as much for him as it was for his audience. Ferriss talks about all that and more, including how wrestling shaped his childhood, the original title of "The 4-Hour Workweek," and why he hopes no one considers him a role model.
