#144: How to 10X Your Results, One Tiny Tweak at a Time
If you've enjoyed my previous in-between episodes , then this might be your favorite episode ever. It's one of the most actionable, information-packed interviews I've ever done. This time, it's Joel Stein (@TheJoelStein) asking the questions. Joel is one of the funniest writers I have ever read, and he's great at leading an interview. Here's how it all happened: Joel wanted me to help him figure out 5 areas he could improve for an upcoming series he was going to create. I have many different conversations with journalists. It can be painful when I have a 1-2 hour conversation, and then it's cut to a single sentence as a quote in a piece. And it's often a misquote. So how do you fix that? Well, you record it yourself, which is what we did. (With Joel's approval, of course.) This way, you don't "lose" the content, and you cover your ass with media and journalists. In this episode, we discuss a wide variety of topics, including: How I choose what to improve from infinite options How you can subtract your way to success The genius of Ben Franklin Why self-improvement doesn't mean self-centered How I say no to time-consuming lunches, coffees, and other meetings How I tackle cold introductions How I surmounted Lyme Disease My 100% complete break from start-ups (read this for more) My podcast process Tools and tactics for reversing email overwhelm Enjoy!

This podcast is also brought to you by Thrive Market. If you’re anything like me, you care a lot about the food you put in your body. In fact, I think it’s much more important than exercise.

Thrive Market is like Costco for everything healthy – an online shopping club offering the best brands and groceries at 25-50% off retail prices, shipped nationally for free. There are a lot of Slow-Carb Diet friendly items that I recommend in The 4-Hour Body.

Joel Stein
Super funny writer Joel Stein stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to talk about his new book, Man Made (A Stupid Quest for Masculinity) for which he let people yell at him while he tried to pee and almost shot a turkey. He also did other, manlier things including fainting and something with Boy Scouts. Then he accused me of having an imaginary boyfriend and misremembering The Brady Bunch. We also talked about massages, black out sex and other stuff which I'm having trouble recalling at this moment but I'm pretty sure was amazing. And of course we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone (click here to see the JMOEs we put up on the screen) and read your iTunes comment of the week.
