At age 18, on the day before his freshman year final exams, Alex Banayan, author of the acclaimed new book "The Third Door", hacked the TV game show The Price Is Right, won a sailboat, sold it and used the prize money to fund his quest to learn from the world's most successful people.

Alex went on a seven year journey tracking down people like Bill Gates, Maya Angelou, Steve Wozniak, Jessica Alba and many others. Alex was on a mission to uncover how these individuals broke through and launched their careers. He even chased Larry King down in a grocery store and snuck into Warren Buffet's shareholders' meeting. In his book, "The Third Door" Alex shares all of his lessons.

In this episode we talk about what he learned from all these fascinating people, but what I took away the most is that his story is just as fascinating, and what he has to share is just as valuable, as all of the big names he interviewed. Alex has been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and The Business Insider's Most Powerful People Under 30.

Alex is quite the force and he's just getting started.

Alison Levine went from climbing the corporate ladder to climbing the highest peak on each continent and skiing to both the North and South Poles. She was the captain of the first American women's Everest expedition, and the list of her adventurous accomplishments goes on and on. Alison is a New York Times bestselling author, an executive producer and when you listen to Alison, you'll understand why she is one of the most in-demand keynote speakers in the world. The parallels she draws between mountaineering and business are thought provoking. In this episode, we do a deep dive into leadership, failure and the life threatening danger of standing still.

What do you get when you combine a professional wrestler who loves to read, and me who knows nothing about wrestling, but also loves to read? You get the Why Not Now? Read a Book Club. Several episodes back, Bryan Danielson was on the show and he mentioned that he reads a book a week. Well, I jokingly suggested starting a book club and we've done it. The first book that we review in this episode is Factfulness by Hans Rosling: 10 Reasons Why We're Wrong About the World and Why Things are Better Than You Think.

I love how books can build bridges so you don't have to have read this first book in order to get value from this conversation. We basically give you the cliff notes.

Follow Bryan on Twitter, and use the #WhyNotNowReadABook hashtag to join the club and have your say about what book we will review next.

Widely considered to be the best big wave surfer in the world, Laird Hamilton is known for having successfully surfed the heaviest waves on the planet. He’s a pioneer in the world of action water sports and the primary influence behind many surfing innovations like tow-in surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, and hydrofoil boarding. 

In this episode we dissect how Laird makes decisions, his relationship with fear, his parenting style, how he has dealt with nay-sayers all of his life and the advice he would give you on all of these topics. 

Laird is also a businessman. He has a variety of apparel and product lines. I took so much away from this conversation with Laird. It made me re-evaluate my relationship with fear and put some of the things I’m scared of into perspective.
