Work & Life: Jordan Harbinger on starting over from scratch
By Rebecca Markwick, on 3 June 2021
I chat with Jordan about how to start over completely from scratch and how important it is to surround youself with good support, as well as how good well thought through feedback makes all the difference
I have the great honour this week of interviewing a podcasting legend, Jordan Harbinger.
On The Jordan Harbinger Show, Jordan deconstructs the playbooks of the most successful people on earth and shares their strategies, perspectives, and practical insights with the rest of us. He has hosted a Top 50 iTunes podcast for over 14 years and receives over eleven million downloads per month, making The Jordan Harbinger Show one of the most popular podcasts in the world.
Huge thanks to Jen Harbinger for helping to schedule this in across very different timezones!
We talk about why his show has worksheets and how unexpectedly popular they are, why it’s important to cover the difficult and gross topics that are happening in the world, Jordan’s strong belief in exposing cults and scams and how you can support friends and family who are trapped in them. We also spend time discussing his Feedback Friday episodes and the amount of research that goes into the responses and how vital that is in order to help people with very niche problems. Lastly we talk about how hard it can be to restart in business from scratch and how looking at those around you who support you and realising what you have done so far can help you to dive back in and start again.
