💵 Asking 70-Year-Old Billionaires If They Have Regrets


Are all the sacrifices and hard work required to become a billionaire worth it? 

I wanted to know, so I asked the tycoons behind:

  • Ugg boots
  • Kinko’s
  • Qualcomm

They share how they built their empires and whether or not they have any regrets.

Was the money worth it?

🖨️ How to Start a Billion Dollar “Boring” Business (one of the most popular episodes we’ve done ever!)


Paul Orfalea is the founder of Kinko’s, a legendary business for making copies and faxes in the ‘90s. Paul ran the company for 30 years, until FedEx acquired it for $2.4 billion dollars.

Nowadays, Paul himself is a legend in the business community, known for his no BS business advice and philanthropy (spoiler alert: he donated so much to charity that he’s not a billionaire anymore).

In this podcast episode, find out what Paul has to say about:

  • Why a business is an instrument to make you happy
  • How to live the best life in your 20s, 30s, and beyond
  • How he splurged after selling the company

And a bunch more ear nuggets.
