#62 – Get Smart, Healthy, and Rich

Randy Gage is a multilevel marketing guru, success coach, motivational speaker, and author of the new book, Why You’re Dumb, Sick, and Broke… And How to Get Smart, Well, and Rich. He has been referred to as “The Millionaire Messiah” because of his assertion that it’s a sin to be poor. A search on Amazon.com will reveal that he has written a number of other books relating to success in multi-level marketing. The contents of “Why You’re Dumb, Sick, and Broke… And How to Get Smart, Well, and Rich” are as confrontational as the book’s title. It’s an in-your-face, take-no-prisoners approach that is meant to challenge many widespread assumptions. As a teenager, Gage was an alcoholic and a drug addict. When he was just fifteen, he went to jail for armed robbery. As you will hear, he later turned his life around and has gone on to great success. Randy Gage is not a psychologist but his book draws heavily upon what many would characterize as “pop psychology.” He is clearly in the tradition of authors such as Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) and Dale Carnegie. This is a somewhat different direction than our past shows have taken and I’ll be interested to hear your reactions.
