You know that thing you’ve been thinking about doing? Why Not Now? This show has been created because I believe the world will be a better place if more people ask themselves, “Why Not Now?” Each episode you’ll hear from a professional Why Notter and learn how they answered the question and took action so you can too.

At age 18, on the day before his freshman year final exams, Alex Banayan, author of the acclaimed new book “The Third Door”, hacked the TV game show The Price Is Right, won a sailboat, sold it and used the prize money to fund his quest to learn from the world’s most successful people.

Alex went on a seven year journey tracking down people like Bill Gates, Maya Angelou, Steve Wozniak, Tim Ferriss, Lady Gaga and many others. Alex was on a mission to uncover how these individuals broke through and launched their careers. He even chased Larry King down in a grocery store and snuck into Warren Buffet’s shareholders’ meeting. In his book, “The Third Door” Alex shares all of his lessons.

In this episode with Alex, we talk about what he learned from all these fascinating people, but what I took away the most is that his story is just as fascinating, and what he has to share is just as valuable, as all of the big names he interviewed. Alex has been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and The Business Insider’s Most Powerful People Under 30.

Alex is quite the force and he’s just getting started.
