172: Listening Your Way to the Top with Jordan Harbinger

Today's Guest: Jordan HarbingerHailing from Michigan, Jordan was an inquisitive kid who was fascinated by the internet at an early age. He went to law school at the University of Michigan and landed a job on Wall Street as a corporate lawyer. Jordan wasn’t interested in climbing the corporate ladder. But he was curious about a partner who was never in the office. Dave spent his days at charity events and playing racquetball. How did he keep his job? Dave told Jordan that he brought in business for the firm. To do that he didn’t sit at his desk: he spent his time building and managing personal relationships. After hard work and intelligence, Jordan felt like he was learning a “secret third path” that nobody ever talked about. This kicked off an obsession with body language and non-verbal communication, persuasion, influence, social psychology and networking. When he started uploading what he learned to the web, he inadvertently became one of the first podcasters. Today Jordan's podcast has grown to INCREDIBLE 11 million downloads per month! On this episode:Amber is joined by attorney turned podcast legend Jordan Harbinger for a conversation changing your life path, preparation, and interview style.Tweetable Quotes"Any path you're passionate about is a successful path depending on your outlook." -Amber Fuhriman"My introduction to the workforce after college was like a cold shower.

" -Jordan Harbinger"Larry King once told me that your audience hears you often, when you have a guest, allow them to shine. That advice helped shape my interview style." -Jordan HarbingerJordan Harbinger:https://www.jordanharbinger.com/Connect with other incredible people looking to break out of the corporate mindset by joining the More Than Corporate Facebook group:http://bit.ly/2MuWn53
