If life were a video game, books would be the cheat codes. The first book I read that changed my mindset completely was written by an author named Tim Sanders called “Love Is The Killer App.” It taught me how to give value and use that to get further in life, especially in entrepreneurship. It laid the foundation for me to be where I am today. Because of social media, years later I was able to form a friendship with Tim and get advice from him personally. Something I would have never imagined when I was younger.
This week I sit down with André Hueston Mack founder of Mouton Noir Wines. If you haven’t heard about him yet, stay tuned because his brand is turning into a household name. If you ever thought to yourself “this can’t be as good as it gets for me,” then this interview is specifically for you.
We learn about Andres humble beginnings working at McDonald’s, and a passionless job in the corporate world. He knew nothing about wine, got influenced watching Frasier and turned that passion into a career as a well-paid wine consultant for top restaurants. Eventually, he turned that new career into a business and now Mouton Noir is one of the top brands in the world.
What it’s like to talk to billionaires for a living?
I met Alex Konrad a few months ago on my visit to Wall Street. I had no idea who Alex was, but I have seen and admired his work without really knowing his name. Alex has written the cover stories on many of the world’s richest people featured in Forbes magazine.
I told Alex I would love to have him speak to my community about journalism and the lessons he has learned interviewing so many titans. So I quickly fired up my laptop and recorded our conversation for the masses.
