Jordan Harbinger

I used to be extremely, painfully shy.

So shy in fact, that I would literally hide in my bedroom when we had visitors to the house, and my parents were forced to coax me away from my fantasy novels to merely come out and make brief eye contact with our visitors...

...before I disappeared back into my bedroom to go back to my novel.

As you learn in my new book, I also thrived on hamburgers and pizza - and my version of a salad was iceberg lettuce drenched in ranch dressing.

But I'm no longer that way, and now I not only podcast, but I also love to speak and engage socially, and actually get paid to travel around the world and talk to lots of people about how to change their fitness, health and lives!

My guest on today's podcast is Jordan Harbinger (pictured right), who has a knack for helping guys just like me to build the skills and confidence necessary for social success.

Jordan has always had an affinity for Social Influence, Interpersonal Dynamics and Social Engineering, helping private companies test the security of their communications systems and working with law enforcement agencies before he was even old enough to drive.

Jordan has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war-zones and been kidnapped -twice.

Jordan will tell you - the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of), just about any type of situation. At his website, The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with his students and clients.

During our discussion in today's podcast, Jordan and I delve into the realm of body language, personal habits, and social confidence.

-What kind of body language mistakes that fit people with nice bodies make which hold them back socially...

-How to reprogram your brain to actually like and appreciate things like kale smoothies and ginger juice...

-A simple eye trick to get you to "fake it until you make it" with extreme social confidence...

-Why bars and clubs are not necessarily the places to go to to enhance your social intelligence and ability to build relationships...

-How I went from eating fast food, being ultra-shy and reading fantasy novels to being named as one of the world's top 100 most influential people in health and fitness...

-And much more!
