Attention: This interview was scheduled for next week, but was so good and promotes something that will help so many people that I decided to post it 1 week early. So the reference to Blog World at the end refers to Next Week.

I meet Authority Bloggers all the time – people who have built blogs that have established them as an authority in their niche. This is pretty commonplace today – People start blogs, become popular, start selling info products and make a significant amount of Cashy Cashy.

However, every once in a blue moon, I meet someone who is doing something that just REALLY STANDS OUT!

Well, let me tell you. I saw a tweet about something Adam Baker was doing, within an hour we had arranged to do an interview that same day (which was yesterday), we did the interview and I’m posting it today.

Why such a quick turnaround? Because I BELIEVE IN WHAT HE’S DOING and I want to do my part to let the world know.

When I was in college, I read a book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad and it completely changed my mindset. For the first time in my life, I knew that I could do something HUGE in my lifetime, and I didn’t have to settle for the status quo.

Adam and his team are working on a project that I believe can serve as that kind of inspiration for people all over the world, and I wanted to share it with you so that you can be one of the first people to have that experience.

Just check out the trailer below:

Ok, so now you see what I mean. I think that this film can transform the lives of so many people that I needed to grab him up for this interview.

Inside the interview, you will discover:

  • The catalyst that changed Adam’s life forever
  • How him and his wife decided to Sell their crap, get out of debt and live the life of their dreams
  • How the “Man Vs. Debt” blog started and grew into the powerful force that it is today
  • Elements of a successful blog
  • About the “I’m Fine, thanks” project
  • What to do if you don’t know what to do in life
  • And MUCH, MUCH MORE . . .
Just do me a favor, listen to this interview, be inspired, and take action!

    leslie the book that, you mentioned earlier changed my mindset too… great interview…great idea…

       @Fotis Giannakelos Yep, Rich Dad, Poor Dad was an essential part of leading me into becoming the entrepreneur I’ve become and am still becoming. I’ve heard that from a number of other people too.
       
      Glad you enjoyed the interview!

    Well, living on your own terms is an American dream too.  Sales people are heroes in the US in ways they aren’t in other countries.
     
    Many of us have been living by making our own choices for years.  We are looking for how to get wealthy while doing this.   We don’t presume there is a magic formula.
     
    I do like Adam’s emphasis on adapting and adjusting.

       @livingauthentically Adapting and adjusting is definitely essential in today’s market. Thanks for the comment!

    Hey, Leslie. 
    I totally love the project I’m Fine, Thanks!!! I heard about it on the net, headed over and became a backer at Kickstarter.

    Do you know what happened next? I received a thank-you-mail from Adam. We got in touch and it turned out that Adam gave me a quick interview for my German blog!

    Adam is great! I knew him from his blog. I was astonished how fast he is. He gave you an interview quite fast, right?

    I wish Adam & the other guys good luck for their project. I hope to spread the word over in the German blogosphere :)

       @Andrea @EntwicklungsCamp.de It was the fastest I’ve ever done an interview. I heard about it, tweeted at him immediately, set up the interview within an hour, recorded the same day and got it out the next. ManVsDebt is doing a great job at getting the word out there, and it’s definitely a worthy project.

    i backed this movie. love the concept. but the movie sucks. the producer seems to love himself and try to relate everything back to him. way to ruin an amazing concept. such a great idea, and now i wish i had never backed.

      Hmm, interesting. I haven’t seen it as yet, but definitely looking forward to checking it out. I’ll see if I think the same thing.
