This week we talk to Jordan Harbinger about the power of awareness and intention
Jordan Harbinger is the founder of The Art of Charm. The Art of Charm helps men to improve their social skills so that they can succeed in business and life. The truth is that I originally turned Jordan down twice to be on the show because I thought he was a “pick-up” artist. I clearly didn’t think that was a good fit for our show. But as I learned more about him and what he does I realized that his focus is to help men become better people. The success follows from that. One of his core principles that he teaches is to leave everything and everyone better than before he was there. That’s a pretty good way to feed the good wolf. In addition his podcast has really excellent guests and he is a great interviewer. I’m glad we had him on because it was a really good conversation.
