Tony Hawk is quite possibly the most well known and innovative professional skateboarder on the planet.

Tony turned pro when he was 14 and went on to experience more success than he could’ve ever dreamed of. One unexpected aspect of Tony is that he's an entrepreneur. He has had his own company, Birdhouse, for many years and has a licensed video game that's become a billion dollar franchise.

We talk about business. We talk about how Tony refers to having gone through three generations of haters in the physical and online worlds and his lessons as a parent. The through line for all of this conversation though is that Tony always comes back to skateboarding. That's his passion. That's the transcendent thread here and it's what's allowed him to do really well in other areas. Tony truly sticks to what he loves, which is inspiring in itself.

Miki Agrawal has one of the most intense Why Not Now? moments we’ve ever heard on the show. Miki worked as in investment banker on Wall Street right across from the World Trade Center, and when 09/11 happened, she was supposed to be at work, but slept through her alarm clock. After all of this took place, she decided to pursue her dreams and finally confronted the reality that she was living a life of supposed to instead of meant to.

From that point on, Miki became an entrepreneur developing a variety of different products and innovations. This woman is a true innovator. She's the founder of THINX, Wild & Tushy. Miki created a restaurant concept (Wild) that revolved around gluten free pizza way before anyone was ever talking about gluten free. She also created a product within a category that had only seen three innovations in the 20th century and completely disrupted the category. You'll get a glimpse into Miki’s process, how she vets ideas and why she thinks business is like a burpee. You'll feel her energy. You can literally hear the passion in her voice.

Amy Porterfield is an online wizard. Truly. She's an online marketing expert, entrepreneur, a podcast host and you're going to want to write down a lot of things she says in this episode. Amy talks about being plagued with the chronic cases of second guessing and shiny object syndrome and that feeling of not enoughness during the phase when she was going out on her own for the first time. She refers to when she was working with the big brands as being a yes girl, always wanting to please, desperate for approval, and then everything changed.

She's become the go-to expert in the online training courses, and email list building fields. It's amazing how much value she offers up in this episode. There are a lot of things that she says that you can take away and do literally today.
