When I interviewed James Altucher, he mentioned a friend of his named Kamal Ravikant and said. "You should have him on your show."  James introduced the two of us and I told Kamal I needed a few weeks.  I  got my hands on a copy of his book Love Yourself as If Your Life Depends On It,  and I emailed him back right away because I was so blown away by the book.  I felt the message of his words was so important that I wanted our listeners to here it sooner than later. Here are just a few of the highlights from our chat:
