Tune In: 

Living the Lifestyle Between Business and Play (13:05)

A glimpse of the blissful life in Bali. Whether it’s off-season or discovering some awesome non-tourist spots, one could easily get in the Bali bubble. As a business owner who loves to surf, it’s always important to get the right perspective in all that you do. Understand what you want and how you’d want to achieve it. From board discussions to mentoring and finding a good coach, everything should lead to one goal -- And that is to get better everyday.

“So many guys are chasing these tiny boards and are so barrel focused.. But the reality is for most people out there is you’re not catching barrels, you just want to be a better surfer, ride more waves, so I would go off a bit from what the “pros” ride, that’s for sure.”

Finding Balance with Productivity, Structure and Technology Tools (34:21)

Every business needs an appropriate amount of discipline and hardwork. Beyond amazing work ethic, it’s also important to identify business burn-out. Take time-outs to reflect and know what works for you. Learn the ropes of your platform and always explore for new options. Focus on your product and prove to yourself that there is a market for it.

“It’s super important these days to have a strong brand and really really good products and those fundamental things.”

The Catalyst That Will Define Business Standpoints (52:17)

Business challenges may come unexpected and most often it can really knock you down. By understanding these risks and knowing how to leverage options can greatly work to your advantage. The e-commerce space is awesome, especially if you want that location interdependence with unlimited scale opportunity. The tough part however, is keeping up with all the changes. It’s such a fast paced space but catching on the fundamentals to achieve that business goal is worth all the risk.

“pick a market that you really know… “

What’s Worth Your Time and Task Delegation (1:08:38)

It’s always a trial and error for any start-up. Being able to identify as to what adds more value to your time is a critical skill that every business owner should acquire. This way financial decisions and efficient task delegation could further streamline your process and in turn minimize mistakes.

“...as your business grows and you're at different stages, you just gotta keep your ears open and try to pull your head out of the waves..”

The Relationship Between Mentoring and ROI (1:17:06)

It’s always great and helpful to find a good mentor, but always look for hard proof. Do something that’s not too big of an investment, time and money wise and go from there. Get someone who you would really need at that time. If you’re going to put money into something, then you’d surely want to have that return.

“I dip my toe in the water with someone. I might do something that’s not too big an investment in time and money wise and then go from there.”

Business Technology and Tools (1:35:30)

Always take 100% responsibility in everything that happens in the business. Execute ideas and use tools to measure productivity. Know those tools and make your metrics straight to the point. This will help identify wastage and maximize cost. 

“Go through the shit, feel bad about it but then pull yourself out and figure out what to do to fix it and then to actually fix it.. execution. People that always have all these ideas is great but execution for me is like 95% of business. You can have the best ideas in the world but if you don’t execute.. Discipline and consistent discipline and action is what success is about.” 

Tips and Recommendations (1:46:26)

Read a good book and get your own internet access and VPN when traveling and running a business at the same time. Also don’t forget to upgrade or renew your computer at least every two years and don’t forget your backup. That is the most important tool for every business and digital nomad.

“... I’m time poor like most people. But what this book [The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday] does to me is it just gives you little perspectives on life. Reading something like that for two minutes can totally set my whole day up for feeling great about the day and get into it.”

The James Altucher Show
Episode artwork
Read more

Dan Carlin hosts the #1 history podcast, “Hardcore History.” It has a cult following. For a lot of reasons: 1. Dan has an incredible voice. 2. his research is so weird and extensive and detailed. And 3. Dan is known for breaking rules. He went around the standard path. And decided that he didn’t need to have a history degree or some pre-approved "credentials" to create the best history show out there. He just went ahead and did it. So I have him on today to find out how he gave himself permission to do what he loves. Despite all the reasons not to... So that we can give ourselves that same permission and start to do what we love. 


I write about all my podcasts! Check out the full post and learn what I learned at jamesaltucher.com/podcast.

Hardcore History's Dan Carlin on Why The End Is Always Near

The Reason Interview With Nick Gillespie
Episode artwork
Read more

Dan Carlin is the host of the popular podcast Hardcore History and author of the new book The End Is Always Near: Apocalyptic Moments from the Bronze Age Collapse to Nuclear Near Misses.

Hardcore History is notable not only for its immense audience (millions of people listen to it) but the length of its episodes. The most recent episode, part of a sequence about Imperial Japan in the 20th century, stretches over four hours.

The 54-year-old Carlin, who has been described as a "social libertarian" and always stresses that he is an amateur historian, talks with Nick Gillespie about what motivates him to go so deep on topics in a moment when we're constantly being told we all have short attention spans, whether he's optimistic or pessimistic about the present and especially the future, and why we haven't yet had a world-ending nuclear catastrophe.

Along the way, Carlin and Gillespie talk about how the media landscape has changed radically (and mostly for the better) over the past 30 years, the deep lesson we should all learn from the original Planet of the Apes movie, and whether, as Carlin puts it in his new book, "the idea of progress is not without bias."

Audio production by Ian Keyser and Regan Taylor.

Today we’re cracking open the history textbooks and learning from OG podcaster—we’re talking, 2005 OG—Dan Carlin! Dan’s had a long career in broadcasting and his podcast, Hardcore History, combines gripping moments in history with Twilight Zone-style twists only a master storyteller could pull off. Dan and Jen examine that while we may be players on the world’s stage, we really have no precedent for today’s society. How do we navigate it when there’s nothing in our experiences we can compare it to? Through it all, Dan provides invaluable insight into seeing ourselves through the lens of history, learning from our ancestors, and fitting ourselves into the giant puzzle.
