The James Altucher Show: Jesse Itzler on Becoming Self-Made

Jessee Itzler is a man of many things. He has a new book out – Living With the Monks: What Turning Off My Phone Taught Me about Happiness, Gratitude, and Focus. For this project, Jesse decided to live with monks for 15 days to see what he could learn. For his last book, titled Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet, he had a navy SEAL move in with him for 30 days, and he had to do everything he said to get himself in shape – not something you do every day.

To top that off, Jesse is the co-founder of Marquis Jet, one of the largest private jet card companies in the world, a partner in Zico Coconut Water, the founder of The 100 Mile Group and an owner of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.
