Dan’s The Man

This is great, never really cared about the guy but after this, he is actually really cool

He says the right things , which makes him sound like he has some advice or somethinng wise to share, but all he has said about money and all he has learned about fame it’s just common sense. And he still does the opposite! Actions speaks louder then words. Chasing money and girls? Nothing wrong with that. I do like his honesty though, but I’ve seen more interesting people on this show. People who are creative and have ideas about improving our lives and the world we live in !

I fully agree, other guests are much more interesting and knowledgeable. Dan crated his own world. Brian, please less of interviews like that ….. I do get why ‘guys’ liked it, because he has said some good advice which guys can benefit from. Apart form that…. waste of my time.

I love the thing how you are doing what you are doing, couse I see that all that is coming from your hearth and your authenticity!
You are a beautiful person 🙂

This was amazing. I loved his insights and motivation and is perception of things. I learned a lot. Anyone in the comment section that “didnt learn” anything are the same fools that are looking for a blueprint to follow and get rich..

Brain, very interesting move….. To be honest, I really don’t get what possibly I could learn from Dan.
Or this interview is pure entertainment?
Obviously Dan is successful, and have everything what he wanted to have in his life…. but seriously shall I laugh or cry?
\Shall I comment or shall I shut up?
I am just lost for words.
Don’t like it. Don’t get it. Not so cool, because it does not fit. 🙁

A friend of mine once told me something that stuck with me. And it goes like this: “You can learn something from anyone”
And it is soo true, no matter if you like someone or not, just relax and listen, there will be something you don’t know.
I am not the biggest fan of Dan either, but i found the talk great and took some things out of it!

yeah don’t jibe with his energy either , couldn’t watch it all. big ego, he might be a fascinating person to come back in a few years once the universe humbles him, interesting guy to watch but don’t feel drawn to listen to him right now

A good friend of mine actually met him at an event, he kept asking her ‘hey don’t you want to get a photo with me?’ she was like No…. quite proud of her….. quiet a needy ego I’d guess………………..Still i’m sure in the future he will be very interesting I hope

Sorry Brian, I tried. I couldn’t get the pass the comment of the “best day of his life was getting high with his girlfriend and friends” I had to stop the video. How old is this guy? ….smh 🙁

Maybe you didn’t get the other information he shared there: he discovered that being with your friends and having a great time made him most happy, and all the money wasn’t needed for that.

Massimo Marchi

So …..you are dismissing friendship? and the simple basic value that he just communicated, as not being one of the best things in life? Rather than criticising tell us openly then which was the best day of your life. I’m curios.

Funny, i didn’t think Dan was this humble. It’s interesting when certain MEN! sorry ladies. Get to this level it becomes harder to find true meaning in life. I like how he reflects that he likes to help his real friends out the most. Not sure about the 5% rule. I think the vast majority of men in the world are married could be wrong. I usually do say I wish I had his lift for 24hrs! Holy shit I would vote for him!

Brain did an excellent job with his questions and made Dan seem more well rounded.
People may have watched this interview out of curiosity. My favourite part is Dan explaining that being with nature and doing ordinary things with friends gives him the most happiness in life.
