Where to start about today’s episode? As announced yesterday, the show is moving beyond business content and focusing on a variety of interviews with interesting people in all kinds of industries – from sports to entertainment.
Today is the kick off of the new era of The Rise To The Top with a VERY special guest. I couldn’t think of anyone better to kick off the new direction.
Neil Strauss is a multiple-time best-selling author with such books as The Game: Penetrating The Secret Society Of Pickup Artists, Emergency! This Book Will Save Your Life and many more, including coauthoring Jenna Jameson’s How To Make Love Like A Porn Star. His new book, Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead, chronicles some amazing (and revealing) moments during his incredible interviewing career for such publications as Rolling Stone and The New York Times.
In this interview, Neil and I discuss a whole range of topics from interviewing some of the world’s top celebrities, musicians and personalities, to finding his calling as a writer, to Neil doing sort of a psychological read on me (not kidding).
