Want to be a guest on The Root of All Success?

We’re always on the lookout for amazingly successful entrepreneurs with a great story.

On The Root of All Success, we are looking ONLY for entrepreneurs who founded their own companies without the help of a family business or franchise. Generally speaking, we seek to interview entrepreneurs whose businesses are producing $10mm in annual revenue and who have built a personal net worth of at least $5mm as a result of the businesses they started. These financial metrics are not hard and fast rules that would disqualify you from being on the show. The main thing is we want guests who are truly successful and who are willing to share their story of how they achieved success.

Please note: If you do not have the experience of starting your own successful business, then do not apply.

If you are confident that you would be an amazing guest for the show, are willing and able to be outgoing, energetic and effusive, please book a 20-minute pre-screening call with Jason’s team. The purpose of this call is to share how the podcast process is designed. At the conclusion of this call, we will together decide next steps to schedule the podcast recording.
