Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll hear:

  • A super cool “interviewee technique” (often used by Hollywood screenwriters) for grabbing the host’s and audiences’ rapt attention right off the bat. – 1:47
  • How a seemingly “innocent” chat with his uncle at Thanksgiving sent the young Michael Dash down the precarious path of gambling. 2:00
  • The shockingly young age Michael began his gambling habit. – 2:20
  • How Michael was virtually groomed as a child to become a gambler. – 2:30
  • Tony’s little-talked about days of being a pro pool player. Geez…what hasn’t he done? (At 2:40 you’ll hear Tony wax lyrical about playing Nine Ball for cash in the pool halls of Houston Texas, and… what he spent his winnings on. Hmm…)
  • The REAL reason gamblers love gambling. – 5:50
  • A form of selling that, more times than not, chews up and spits out the salespeople who attempt it. (This “brutal” form of selling is what Michael cut his teeth on and says it has turned him into one helluva good salesperson. – 9:15
  • Why Michael used to be called “The White Devil” (And no… this was not a term of endearment or a nickname given by his mates. Full story at 9:30)
  • Michael’s “crazy” Spring Break story. (This involves a Lincoln Continental, two ballsy but stupid guys in their early twenties, and 22 pounds of marijuana – 12:00)
  • What Michael saw that helped him kick his gambling addiction for good! -14:10
  • Michael and Tony swap “horror stories” about business partnerships, corporate bullying, and rant about scumbag business executives and their money-grubbing lawyers. The fun starts at 22:00
  • A cautionary tale: what Michael learned during his six years of litigation hell. – 24:30
  • The dumbass mistake most people make when seeking legal help. – 35:00
  • The “Hell Yes! F*#k No!” philosophy that’s helped Michael (1) make better life decisions (2) become more focused, and (3) feel a sense of peace and wellbeing. – 38:50
  • Proof that Michael Dash is not a fan of the 80s band The Police. – 39:40
  • The strange (but effective) way Michael gets high. (Don’t worry, this doesn’t involve taking any drugs or ingesting any substances. – 48:10)
  • Michael’s damn good advice for entrepreneurs, introverts, and lone wolves who spend a lot of time alone. (Since Michael’s been doing this, he’s never been happier. – 52:00)
