The Tai Lopez Show

I spoke at Harvard University last week and it was an extremely humbling experience.

Not everybody gets to speak at the top university in the world.

Yet, leading up to my talk in Cambridge, all I could think about was the fact that I myself was a college dropout.

And make no mistake about it, college dropouts are foreign to Harvard.

Between Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Matt Damon and others, Harvard’s dropouts have been more successful than most other colleges' graduates.

Which leads to a question that I am always asked.

“Tai, should I go to college?”

In the video I’ll explain how you should really approach college.

And when should you get a degree versus when you should drop out, or skip it altogether.

I have a simple goal for myself.

I want to make 300 people insanely wealthy.

And I’m not talking about making people who already have a ton of money wealthier.

I’m talking about helping ordinary people create financial independence from themselves.

That’s because I want to help the people who were just like me.

The ones who don’t come from a family of money and aren’t lucky enough to have received an inheritance.

And I know this sounds like a bit of a lofty goal, creating 300 wealthy people…

But the truth is, I have already been creating wealthy people through my programs for years now.

And with the evolution of snapchat, people write me so much that I actually get to document people’s progress as it’s happening.

For example, two months ago I first opened my Social Media Marketing Agency course where I teach people how to get businesses to pay you to help grow their social medias.

This was the first time I opened up the curtains to how I grew my YouTube and Facebook accounts to just about 700,000 subscribers/Likes.

But the thing about social media is that it’s not enough to just have followers.

My program teaches step by step techniques on how to monetize your following, no matter how big or small it may be.

And only a few weeks after the launch of my program, I had someone message me saying that my program is helping them make 20k a week.

(I actually inserted the screenshot of this message in the video above)

And a question I get all the time from my peers in the entrepreneur world is why do you share your secrets.

Aren’t you just creating more competition for yourself, Tai?

While it is true that I am creating more competition for myself.

The reason I created this Social Media Marketing Agency program is because I’ve spoken at Harvard and London Business School, which are the top 2 universities in the world. And after talking to those kids, I am more then aware that everyone doesn’t have $200,000 to invest into an Ivy League education.

And to be completely honest.

Most of those Ivy League kids I spoke to don’t even have the money themselves.

They’re just going deeper and deeper into debt.

The educational system is a real problem in the world that needs to be fixed.

People are going into huge amounts of debt without learning money-making skills to even get themselves out of it.

And now they’ll literally be stuck paying off these student loans for the next 3,4 or 5 decades of their lives.

But instead of complaining about the system. I’ve decided to do my part and “be the change I wanted to see.”

So if you want to learn step by step techniques on how to land big clients and have them pay you to manage their social media.

"When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

This is one of my favorite quotes because it illustrates the way the majority of people think.

Before I opened up my real estate course, with my business partner Cole Hatter, many people I spoke to about real estate equated

Renting a house with being poor, and buying a house with being rich.

But if you want to separate yourself from the masses, you have to have to think differently then the masses.

Because the reality of the situation is that there are many celebrities who rent their homes as opposed to buying them.

So do they rent because they can't afford their homes?

Of course not.

So when should you buy versus when should you rent?

What do you do with your income? Where do you place it to get the highest rates of returns?

In this video I talk about the secrets of how the wealthy invest their money.

Rihanna is one of the most recognized figures in the world.

And if you ever have the pleasure of meeting her, it won't be hard to tell why.

When I meet individuals with the accomplishments of Rihanna I try to think extremely practically.

So after my conversation with her, I had these two thoughts:

1) Why is Rihanna so loved?

2) How can I apply that to my own life?

The answer to why Rihanna is so loved is evident in our conversation.

Despite her popularity and riches,

Rihanna is still extremely humble.

And this is exactly what sets her apart from most other celebrities and people in general.

There's so much misconception about the word hustle. At times hustle is extremely necessary. This is especially true when you're starting out on your entrepreneurial journey. But hustle is a means to an end, it's not a goal. Your goal should be to create a sustainable business model, that if you put a great team behind it, can run without you being in the day-to-day. Having a sustainable business will allow you to spend time with your spouse, your kids, your friends and your loved ones. You'll also have time to hit the gym, a place that you've neglected for so long. Your goal shouldn't be to purely hustle. Your goal should be to live a long, healthy and fulfilled life. Set your sights on living that life instead, although, you might have to hustle at times to get there...


Why are you so afraid? So timid? So fearful? If you're anything like me when I first started out, you feel these emotions. But have you ever asked yourself WHY? Maybe it's because you feel that you don't know enough. However, in my experience, most businesses don't know what they're doing either. So lucky you! Warren Buffett once said that he too used to be scared of the real world when he was in college. But when he graduated, he said, he soon realized that most people in the real world were rarely qualified to do anything BIG. And that's the sad truth about business. People are either too lazy to become knowledgable in their field, or they are simply just misguided. But if you put in the effort that the other 99% of people don't, then you WILL stand out from the crowd.

How do you build a business with little or no experience? It’s simpler than you may think. If there’s one thing that I’ve learned in my 20+ years of entrepreneurship, it’s that most businesses are bad at this one key thing. And that key thing is marketing. You see, most businesses spend way too much time bettering their product. And they don’t spend enough time making sure that their product is actually known. Now I’m not saying that building the best product is a bad thing to do. But it leaves a vulnerability in many businesses, if equipped with the proper know-how, could potentially earn you a lot of money. Check out how Joe Soto built a 7-figure businesses using this one simple strategy.

Is it possible to create your own luck? Yes, of course it’s possible. Our favorite celebrities tell us all the time about the 'big break' that turned their career around and propelled them to where they are today. But the thing about creating your own luck is that you have to put in the work. Putting in the work, each and every day, puts you in a position to take advantage of the opportunities once they do come. And inevitably there’s going to be times where you don’t seize the opportunity that’s put in front of you, or even worse, you completely miss it altogether. But if you continue to work each and everyday, if you become more observant of what’s going on around you, you will recognize opportunities that are right infant of everyones face yet nobody else can see.

If you're like me, and was born in the U.S., you were born in a capitalist society. And one of the first rules of wealth building we hear in western society is that you have to spend money to make money. But is that really true? Is there a benefit to being a miser with your money? Can you actually save your way to financial freedom? In today's book of the day we'll explore the truth behind how to grow your financial life.

The question that I get the most is, "How did you turn your life around?" "How were you able make it in business with only $47 in your bank account?" And the answer is that you should be your happiest when you're at your lowest point in your life. Now that sounds a bit farfetched, but hear me out. "When you succeed you party. When you fail you ponder" This quote is straight from a Tony Robbins' book that my mom gave me when I was sleeping on a couch which completely changed the trajectory of my life. This quote reminded me that when something in your life isn't going right, whether it's your finances being a wreck or you getting dumped by a partner, that is the best time for you to ponder. When you fail you should take time to think and reassess, that way you can come back even stronger than you were before. My second mentor Allan Nation said that the definition of an entrepreneur is someone that recreates the world in their own image. So remember when you think you're down and out you really have the clearest path to recreating your world in the exact way you want it.


"What's my personality type?" This should be an extremely difficult question for a co-worker or an acquaintances to answer. That is because the trick to winning friends and influencing people is to have a balanced personality type. Now people like to argue with me about the importance of personality types. They say things like, "Are personality types really that important" or "Can a personality test really tell me who I am as a person?" And my answer is yes. It's that plain and simple. Having an imbalanced personality is like having poor health; it's extremely noticeable. People can recognize it right away, and a test can too. By taking personality tests you start to realize what your imbalances are so you can then begin working towards balancing them.

The first thing you need to do when selling anything is to define your goals or your objectives. Some objectives that you should have a clear answer to is who you want this product or service to help and how big that market is. Once you define your customer avatar, you can then reverse engineer every step of the way it'll take to reach those people. And if you happened to change what you originally thought would work, for something you know will help better to reach your customer avatar, then you are not a sell-out. You are a good marketer. You serve your customer, not yourself.


Whether you’re looking to marry someone, go into business with a partner or simply befriend a co-worker there is one trait you need to look for. Are they humble? The latest research states that a person who lacks humility is more likely to cheat, steal or be friends with you for the wrong reasons. My favorite quote from today’s book of the day says, “If you meet someone with low levels of humility and honesty, just stay away from them.” I thought that was pretty funny haha...

Do you have a balanced personality? Are you too masculine or feminine?

This will effect your personal life, income, lifestyle, and happiness.

Today I want to talk about something that's near and dear to my heart; personality types.

My good friend, Mimi Ikonn came up The Bingo Theory several years ago. The theory helps you balance your masculine and feminine energies. The books teaches you how to use your energies to your advantage and not let it work against you.

Mimi also has a cool personality test that you can take that outlines your strengths and weaknesses.


Want to be successful? Be nice. It's that simple. Well, there's actually more to it. But being a nice person is the most important and the most practical advice that I can give anyone. There's 25 cognitive biases of the human brain; one of the strongest cognitive biases being 'liking and disliking bias'. Your ability to be likable is highly correlated with your success in life or in business. So if you're sitting down at your desk right now, watching the video, and saying to yourself that 'I could be a nicer person': you have some work to do. If you aren't nice, or if you are constantly taking jabs at people, chances are you will stay at the level you're currently at. And don't get me wrong. There will always be one or two complete assholes in high places. But they're much less the norm than people think.


Larry King is one of the most influential people in American pop-culture. King has interviewed everyone from the likes of The Dalai Lama and Oprah to Chris Brown and Kim Kardashian. On his way to becoming one of the most prominent interviewers in the world, Larry King was helped by mentor named Jackie Gleason. Gleason gave King some advice that he still remembers today, "You understand the whole secret of this business, which is, there's no secrets." If you combine the lessons King has learned on his journey to prominence, with the thing's he has learned from world leaders,  it makes for one hell of an interview. Learn what King thinks about Trump running for presidency, this craziest interview he has ever done and what you should look for before you purchase a house.

I often ask others who are uncertain about my book blitz method whether they would rather have one amazing consultant to their business' or have six? Although it is possible to have too many cooks in the kitchen, the answer undoubtably is always yes. Treat your reading the same way.

What's really being said? How does the person across from you truly feel about you? You have the option of physically listening to what the other person is saying; but science has proved that the words someone says only accounts for about 7% of what they're actually communicating. So what about the other 93%? Well that manifests itself in posture, eye contact, and tonality amongst other things. However, it's not until you understand and learn to interpret the other methods of communicating that you'll really understand how somebody feels about you or the situation. So that hot girl's number that you got at the club but didn't text back. Or that business deal that you were certain you were going to close but didn't show for the next appointment.

Get more done in life. I get messages and snaps all the time from people who can't seem to shake procrastination; or just don't have enough energy to get everything that they want done. First, I ask them how is their diet. Because if you aren't eating well then you will never have enough energy. Secondly, I say it's all about having "mind over matter". You have to have drive. And sometimes you have to mind trick yourself to having more energy.

Should you sacrifice the life of one innocent person if it would mean saving the life of 1000 other innocent people.

We just saw the movie, Eye In The Sky with Helen Mirren, a very interesting movie.

Should you kill an innocent life to save 1000 other innocent lives?

What would you do?

I used to think that the right choice was to kill one person to save the lives of many.

But I read an interesting book about the fundamentals of the federal law system.

Which was about the fundamentals of the US law. And it said you're better off to create a legal system that would not imprison 100 guilty people if that meant it will never imprison an innocent person.

Meaning you can't be too hard on people in court, because it's better for a few people to go free that actually broke into someone's house than it is to have one innocent person rot in jail.

So ever since I heard that argument I really can't tell you my opinion.

These are killer tough questions.

But the main takeaway I got from the movie is that the root of all evil, you might of heard this before, is money. But that's actually false. The root of all evil or most evil is poverty, injustice, and abuse.

You need to bring income equality. From my experience, all rich countries I've visited are the most peaceful.

The "Thank You" effect! It is amazing how many people want massive success in their life but never learned the simple secret of saying thank you.

All the top people do it: Millionaires, Billionaires, A-List Celebrities.

You know who never says thank you, broke people.

You have to pay attention to the habits of successful people and reverse engineer what they do.

If you want to have more mentors, say thank you to people.

If you want to have more money, say thank you to people.

Even better, use my "one for one" principle: someone does one thing for you, you do one thing for them.

It is so simple, but most people never pay attention and use this simple secret. Albert Einstein said "Make things as simple as possible, but not simpler."

Trust me! You will reap the rewards from saying thank you.

Right now, write below who you need to say thank you to.

It's not about what you know, it's about who you know. How good of a networker are you?

In "Get Big Things Done: The Power Of Connectional Intellegence" by Erica Dhawan, it says that the benefits of learning the power of connectional intelligence is that "you'll be able to take your dream, add connections, and you'll be able to dream even bigger and get big things done."

Here is some insight from what I've learned from my mentors; It's not about what you should know, it's about who you should know. You become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time around. So if you wanted to become a millionaire, make sure to get to know and hang around 5 millionaires because it's likely you will become the 6th if you do.

The power of connection is so crucial to your financial future. Too often in my life I've made the mistake of trying to do things on my own and it ends up being too inefficient. Imagine being able to network with other experts in your field and collaborate towards one goal? How much faster would you achieve these goals?

This book takes those same principles of networking and breaks them down into parts that you can work on to increase your ability to network in what they call "The 5 C's"

1. Curiosity - Curious people attract high level people.
2. Combination - Having the ability to combine different people's ideas and formulating it into your own.
3. Community - You must have the ability to bring people together.
4. Courage - Build the courage in order to network with others.
5. Combustion - The ability to drive and motivate others. Others should be able to feel this from you.

If you don't have all of these traits, or you are very weak in one, the best way to build them up is to train consistently. You may fail in the beginning, but no one was born a natural networker: the more you train, the better you will become.

Make sure to leave me a comment on what parts of networking you are good at and what parts where you need to work on.

At every point when you have something to sell you have two basic kinds of people who you can work with:

Prospects and paying customers.

Paying customers buy stuff from you.

Prospects are people who are somewhat interested in your product.

You must be able to convert prospects into customers to make money.

If you know how to take the 7.3 billion people and turn them into prospects or a lead you are going to get a hell of a lot more people in the paying category.

Remember, impatience = poverty.

Most people walk up to the 7.3 billion in the world and impatiently try to get them to buy.

People need to see your brand 7 times before they want to buy.

Heres a simple way to get more leads:

1. Ask people for their email on your website

2. Be good at it. To be good it has to be mobile optimized. It has to look good. There has to be an incentive it.

3. Know how to follow up

One my tricks when I used to have nightclubs was to get email addresses.

When people first saw the Lamborghini ad they thought it was weird. But over time people started to watch the ad and say, "Oh, this guy is telling me to read more books."

For me the better I have gotten at this, the more money I've made.

My friend Anthony made this tool to get more email leads.

This guy has made lots of money online.

Remember I said you have to be good at asking for emails?

Anthony has a webinar that you can watch to learn the 3 things to help you build more opt-ins.

Remember, cynics are always broke.

All the money is on the cutting edge.

Make war with a multitude of councilors.

I look at everything now with open eyes and I'm always willing to experiment.

People are so paralyzed by inaction, so they miss opportunities.

If you want to do big things don't regret a lot of stuff.

You need buyers, this is key.

Having a Snapchat or Instagram does not mean people will buy.

It's the transition that gets them to buy.

How do you get someone from Instagram into a sequence where they get to know you?

To make a lot of money you have to know how to do a lot of things.

This is one of those simple things you must know.

For some of you this is going to be the most important decision you have ever made.

For some of you it won't.

But remember a mind full of conclusions has no room for expansion.

I have never met someone who said, "Bro, I went broke because I invested in my own brain."

Only by investing will you acquire more wealth.

There are no get rich quick schemes, there are only skills.

How do you build skills?

Train.

How do you train?

Spend time with people who have done it before.

You need pieces from everyone.

A little from me, a little from Anthony, a little from Warren Buffet, a little from Elon Musk.

This is what has worked for me.

Of course you have to apply skill to it.

The purpose of life is to win and bring others along with you to win.

Just like my mentors took me along the ride with them I want to take you with me.

Let me know if this helps you?

Everyone will tell you that you have to start businesses from scratch. They don't get the full story. Expand your money game by understanding the language of money. And one of the things in the language of money is understanding how to purchase pre-existing assets.

Success Rule - If you want to be Badass:

1. Surround yourself only with badasses

OR

2. Surround yourself with people who are on their way to becoming badasses

These two only work if you follow the third rule:

3. Be a badass yourself!

Rank yourself on a scale from 1-10, focus on yourself and bump it up. Then rank those around you. What I do is rank my employees, if you work for me you are either already a badass, or I can see you potentially becoming a badass. I am not going to waste my time trying to work on you and improve your business skills.

Ranking family is often hard, but necessary. You don't need to excommunicate anyone, you can just reduce the amount of time you spend with those who are not badass.

Remember:
"The quality of my life is determined by the quality of my surroundings"

I had Murray Newlands, a contributor to Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine from the Silicon Valley, over at my house to speak about the two M's every entrepreneur wants to learn more about - marketing and motivation.

Murray says that it is important to focus on what your customer’s problem is and how you can solve that. Then you have to communicate how you are solving that problem in a way that people will understand.

You have to understand your target persona and ask:

- Who is my person?
- What resonates with them?
- What do they love?
- How do I combine what they love with my product so they can absorb it?

Doing these really well are the keys to successful marketing.

What is the best way to reach the exact audience that you're targeting as an entrepreneur?

I played some NBA basketball with All-Star Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers the other day.

You can tell in sports interviews and on the NBA news that he's a nice guy with social skills. When I hung out with him, he made me feel welcome - he even gave me a pair of Chris Paul Player Exclusives. He's present in the moment.

People don't remember what you do, they remember how you make them feel.

Chris Paul is ruthless when he plays. But when you're hanging out he makes you feel good - and that's a real skill.

What can you learn from Chris Paul to apply in your life?

Obama and Rand Paul were in the news when I was headed to bed.

The argument was over the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment as they relate to gun control.

Earlier in the day I had been to an event at a house nearby in Bel Air where Warren Buffett and Hillary Clinton were talking - I almost got to talk to Buffett, damn-it, haha!

Both sides have good arguments, but I like Charlie Munger, the billionaire business partner of Warren Buffett, and his quote:

“I never allow myself to have an opinion on anything that I don't know the other side's argument better than they do.”

So I tried to argue both sides. Don't think I did it very well but I tried haha.

What's your opinion - and can you argue both sides so that you have a well balanced, logical opinion?


You can stop procrastination once you understand the 4 M's of motivation: Material, Mating, Mastery, and Momentum.

I use these every day to encourage and incentivize myself internally.

Which of the 4 M's is strongest for you?


Rags to Riches.

The American Dream.

Victor used the lessons from his 1st business bankruptcy for a turnaround later in his life. My buddy from New York dropped by Knowledge Society headquarters to tell his inspiring story...


Everybody loves a rags-to-riches story.
 
I brought my friend Nick Unsworth here up from San Diego. He was completely broke at 28 and was $50,000 in debt. But, Nick turned it around and at age 30 sold his first business.
 
Sometimes when you watch the news, you see these stories where somebody broke becomes the next Bill Gates and that's all great.
 
But it's also good to understand that you don't always have to hit a home run. You can move from first base to second to third.
 
In fact, according to Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham, it's a much safer approach.
