A few weeks ago Lauryn & Michael flew to Vegas to meet and record with Dan Bilzerian.
How can we even begin to describe it?
He is a venture capitalist and author who has made a name for himself as a high-stakes professional poker champion, adrenaline seeker and Instagram sensation. His lifestyle, his love of danger and his careless attitude won him international fame.
In his podcast episode he talks about what his childhood and experience of bullying was like, how he got rich in the gaming industry, and what it’s like to have a day in his life.
He talks about his experience with women, the strategies he uses to seduce girls, and why he chooses to date several women at once. We also see a vulnerable side and he gives us the truth about his feelings about his reputation, what he has to say to people who hate him, and why he allows people to underestimate him.
It’s a must-listen. Love him or hate him, you’re sure to learn something about him that could change your opinion. That’s why today we want to share 5 unsuspecting things we learned about him in the candid episode. Let’s go…
5 things you didn’t know about Dan Bilzerian
♡ he entered the Navy SEALS training program
This is a wild part of the podcast. He talks about some injuries he suffered during training and his emotions and feelings towards higher ranks.
♡ he is on social networks
Our favorite line from Dan: “Social media is a video game that I beat 8 years ago.” It was refreshing to hear that he is no longer a fan of social platforms, but they are great for business. In fact, he said that social media is the worst thing that can happen to society.
♡ pleasure and happiness are different
You’ll have to listen to the episode for his take on this one. You might be surprised how he defines the two after taking a look at his Instagram Feed.
♡ he accepts people’s assumptions about him
This is something that can be used to your advantage. It helped Dan in poker and it can help you in your life too.
♡ he just wrote his own book, all by himself.
Lauryn & Michael couldn’t put Dan’s book, The set up, down. Lauryn immediately knew they had to interview her AND Dan wrote the whole book himself, without a ghostwriter, so you can be sure it’s as real and raw as it gets. Without forgetting that its preface is David Gogins. Tune into the podcast to find out how they met.
Have you ever listened? What was your best takeaway of the episode. Be sure to take his book The set up Also. Like we said, Lauryn couldn’t put it down and literally cracked up reading it.
