< 1 day ago
Do you want a Warren Buffet-sized bank account? Well, Buffett once told today’s guest a key to make it happen. If your definition of success has anything to do with money, you’ve already failed. Warren Buffett Although success has nothing to do with money, money is the byproduct of being successful, Buffett went on to tell my guest, Troy McClain. Troy is the CEO of AXS Consulting and the McClain Companies. He got his business start by becoming a finalist on President Donald Trump’s The Apprentice in 2004. The reality TV show pitted businesspeople against each other for the privilege of running one of Trump’s companies with a $250,000 annual salary. Even being the only contestant who lacked education beyond a high school diploma, Troy managed to become a finalist before hearing “You’re fired” because of his educational shortcomings. That time with Trump was the first of many audiences that Troy found with successful men he wanted to follow. In this episode, you’ll also listen to Troy McClain tell his story of meeting Warren Buffett via private jet and another successful businessman via tow truck (the story’s even better than it sounds!) You’ll also hear some memorable one-liners his “Ma” gifted him when she wasn’t working as a bouncer or a trucker – or otherwise “between success cycles.” In short, you’ll hear the incredible lengths Troy McClain went to get in front of successful men he wanted to learn from.

Excellent Interviewer and Worthwhile Material!
I was recently interviewed by Robert Mallon, and have listened to some of his podcasts. Robert does a great job drawing out the essence of his featured guest's experiences on the show, and the inspirational message from them for his listeners. With his easy going conversational style, it felt like talking with an old friend. Thank you for having me on your podcast, Robert. It was a real pleasure!
