Eric Thomas

Prepare for Greatness & Believe in Yourself

He was only free at 7 am on a Friday to record this interview, but it was worth it.

If you listened to the first episode on the School of Greatness with Eric Thomas, AKA ET The Hip Hop Preacher, I’m sure you agree with me.

ET is one of the most inspiring and motivating voices on YouTube today. He’s also a powerhouse force in schools around the country, in his workshops, books, iTunes albums, and podcasts.

He’s the real deal.

So when everything lined up to get him back on the show, I was stoked.

"Start where you are with what you have because what you have is plenty."  

This time around we went deep into relationships.

Eric is a family man through and through, but he has also built an incredible team of people to support his vision.

He has a lot of powerful experience cultivating relationships the right way, and I loved learning from him (and meeting his team who came with him).

One of my favorite moments of this conversation was hearing ET’s perspective on what it means to be a man.

I know he practices what he preaches.
