What Fame, Money & Success Won't Get You


I used to think that being ambitious and going 100% after my dreams would lead to healing and a feeling of inner peace. As I get older and continue on my journey though, I’ve come to realize that the opposite is true – once you start down the path to healing, you’ll begin to take your ambition to a whole new level. 

Here’s the reason why: once you start living your truth, your true purpose will reveal itself to you. If you’re in the process of healing, you’ll pursue your passions and goals from a genuine place rather than a place of anger, resentment, and bitterness – setting you up for long-term success both internally and externally.

It’s safe to say that my guest today has taken this concept to the highest level. His name is Steven Bartlett, and at just 29 years old, he is widely considered one of Europe’s most talented and accomplished young entrepreneurs, investors, and host of one of the most popular podcasts on the continent, The Diary of a CEO

During our conversation, Steven shares with me how despite his outward success, it wasn’t until he began healing that his full ambition took flight. I’m SO pumped to share this one with you all and know you’ll gain a ton of value from Steven’s insights. And now, please help me welcome the one-and-only, Steven Bartlett, to The School of Greatness!

“Healing actually creates the foundation for real ambition.” @StevenBartlettSC  

Today’s guest is Steven Bartlett. He is the 29-year-old Founder of the social media marketing agency Social Chain. From a bedroom in Manchester, this university drop-out built what would become one of the world’s most influential social media companies when he was just 21 years old, before taking his company public at 27 years old with a current market valuation of over $600M.

Steven is a speaker, investor, author and content creator, hosting Europe’s biggest podcasts, ‘The Diary of a CEO’. Steven recently released his debut book, ironically titled ‘Happy Sexy Millionaire’ which is a Sunday Times best seller. Steven joined BBC’s Dragon’s Den (UKs version of Shark Tank) for Series 19 this January 2022, as the youngest ever Dragon in the show’s history.
