Oz Pearlman

Read Minds and Amaze People

Get ready for your mind to be blown. No really.

I have always been fascinated by the power of the mind and people who have learned to master it.

Especially when it comes to using your mind to read other people.

So every time I’ve seen a magician or performer who specializes in this, I get so excited.

And when I had the chance to meet one of the best mentalists in the world, Oz Pearlman, I was extra excited.

If you watched the show America’s Got Talent a few seasons back, you’ll recognize Oz as the incredible mentalist who nearly won the season with his mind-blowing tricks reading people’s minds.

He’s also an accomplished endurance runner who has done several of the toughest ultra-endurance races on the planet.

"The best form of creativity is a deadline."  

I remember watching Oz on TV and thinking he was amazing.

Then he came to the studio to record a podcast interview and this was confirmed.

He set up several tricks with me and my team that he blew our minds with during the interview (we literally were trying to figure out how he did these for hours after he left).

But some of the best moments of our conversation were when Oz talked to me about the skills he’s developed as an entrepreneur, a negotiator, a salesman, a networker, and a performer.

These are the skills all of us can use no matter what kind of business or project we are working on.

And learning them from a world-class mentalist is a bonus.

Get ready to believe the impossible in Episode 476 with the one and only Oz Pearlman.
