If you want to hear from the “world’s fittest CEO” Strauss Zelnick about how to have a better body at 61 than 21, and how to create more success and abundance in all areas of your life, then you want to listen to this podcast.
Today’s guest is Strauss Zelnick, who’s known in the Fortune 500 circles as the “world’s fittest CEO.”
At 61 years old, Strauss maintains a two-a-day workout schedule while running the media juggernaut Take-Two Interactive, which has given us blockbuster video game franchises like Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, and NBA 2K, as well as his private equity firm, Zelnick Media Capital, which has about $12 billion in assets.
Oh and Strauss also has managed to do all of that while also being a husband to his wife of nearly 30 years and father to his three children, which is no small feat, either.
As you can tell, I’m kind of a fan of Strauss’. You just don’t get to meet people like him very often.
So, in this interview, Strauss talks about his upcoming book called Becoming Ageless, which is his personal blueprint for looking and feeling young and vibrant at any age, as well as his thoughts on a number of topics, including work-life balance, goal setting and achievement, key life lessons learned, and more.
I hope you enjoy it.
