TMBA591: The Surprising Habits of Wealthy People with Noah Kagan

Podcast 52:28 | Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

Our good friend Noah Kagan recently published a video that caught our attention.

Noah is the founder of, and his YouTube channel has been a favorite destination of late for thoughtful content about entrepreneurship and creating wealth.

That video was called 10 Surprising Things About My Richest Friends, and in it, Noah outlined some specific habits that he has seen time and time again among the wealthiest people he’s met.

We were so enthralled by some of the unorthodox ideas he presented that we had to talk to Noah to dig a bit deeper.

In today’s episode, Noah joins us to discuss the types of habits that the super-wealthy cultivate, how people become rich in the first place, and what we can do to emulate some of these behaviors ourselves.
