James Altucher Takes Over The School of Greatness Podcast With Lewis Howes

After inspiring everyone to “Choose Yourself” in episode #19, James Altucher returns to take over as the host on The School of Greatness.

With Altucher in charge, the microphones have been turned around and I’m the one who is answering the questions.  I share things I’ve never shared before about chasing my dreams of being a pro athlete to the rough transition of living on my sister’s couch.  Then I share the turning point that led to doing millions in sales over the last few years.

So strap yourselves in because James is taking over on this 21st episode of the School of Greatness podcast.
