Jason Hartman and Adam start off today’s show talking about the topic of the news today: Trump’s billion dollar “loss” over a 10 year period. What the media fails to mention throughout the whole thing is that he didn’t actually LOSE any of that money, he simply had massive deductions thanks to the beauty of real estate phantom deductions.
Then Jason talks with Steve Jones, CEO of Allied Universal and author of the book No Off Season: The Constant Pursuit of More, about how his career in sports translated into business success. Steve and Jason look at the various skills learned in sports and how can each be applied to the business world, whether you’re an employee or employer.
