Most recently: Be Obsessed or Be Average by Grant Cardone. It’s a huge kick in the ass and explains why being an obsessive entrepreneur is actually a good thing.
How do you start off your day — aka what’s your morning routine?
Two hours at the gym followed by four-six hours of client work. I start my day at 5:30 a.m., so by noon I have my two biggest tasks out of the way.
What is one thing you do to get motivated?
Doing a single task. I shut everything off, hide my phone and go into a tunnel.

Wework because they play loud music in the common area which makes the entire vibe more social.
If you had the opportunity to spend a week or month in another country to be your office of the week/month, where would you go?
Hawaii because I have to stay in the Americas for time-zone reasons. Otherwise it would be Tokyo.
