Awesome Steve! I’m glad you highlighted that the rich are a minority and get DISCRIMINATED against as well! This is why I think it is wrong to tax people more who make more money more than someone who makes less.

Let’s fight for equality!

Where did you play college tennis Steve? We should play sometime!

Sounds a lot like T. Harv Eker’s Secrets of the Millionaire Mind…
Tom, why didn’t you ask him exactly how he made $100,000 in four days, with an email message? Shouda been the inevitable follow-up question, if you ask me.

Steve is spot on about the rich having a stronger belief system. Its not rocket science people, if you want to become wealthy upgrade your beliefs in your abilities and learn how to leverage EVERYTHING for monetary gain. Great podcast interview Tom!
