The Introverted Iconoclast

The Introverted Iconoclast

So, you want to be a powerful, wealthy, and charismatic luminary… but you want to do it without ruffling feathers or attracting haters? Heh, yeah, so did I… Let me tell you how that worked out for me… This is the continuing story of my serendipitous journey from shy outcast growing up in an obscure part of the world to becoming a highly successful serial entrepreneur. In this podcast, I obliterate self-imposed limits, deny regret, recognize and use failure, hurdle obstacles, manage hate, and revel in epic wins… all while trying to stay a decent human being… easier said than done. Each episode, always unscripted and sometimes irreverent, will focus on a theme tied to actual events in my life. Welcome to The Introverted Iconoclast.

On this episode of The Introverted Iconoclast, I sat down with Steve Sims.  Steve looks like the perfect hybrid of a character straight out of a Guy Richie movie and a Harley Davidson TV commercial.  But underneath that surly facade, Steve harbors some deep wisdom and an unapologetic resolve that is, quite frankly, very refreshing.  I can see why people are drawn to Steve and how he has brute forced himself into the position he is ...

On this episode of The Introverted Iconoclast, I sat down with Donnie Boivin, the original badass success champion. I gotta say, this ranks as one of my all time favorite interviews for a couple of reasons: First, Donnie and I literally didn’t even exchange an email directly before meeting for this interview but as you will hear, we got along like we have known each other for years. Secondly, he’s fucking real! No bullshit and a...
