Jesse doesn’t remember anything he learned from college except for ONE lesson. He calls it “the $160,000 lesson.” He almost breezed by it. I had to stop him. “What was the lesson?”
It’s a strong lesson. And if I try to write the whole story in this box, it’ll lose it’s power.
I wrote about it here. Or you can listen to the podcast now [it’s in the first 2 mins]. It’s worth it. Jesse is one of the most naturally motivating people I’ve ever met. And it’s contagious.
