Why You Should Wake Up at 4:30 AM Every Day, According To A Navy SEAL
 
03:01
With a busy schedule, Jocko Willink finds time to get everything done by waking up before everyone else does. Willink, former Navy SEAL and author of "Way of the Warrior Kid" explains the one habit from service that he can't shake. For the full interview, search for "Success! How I Did It" on Apple Podcasts or your favorite app. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/success-how-i-did-it/id1205997729?mt=2  Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more.

So for example, you still wake up at 4:30 in the morning, to go workout, what was it about your time in the Seals, that you wanted to keep these habits up? Jocko Willink: They're good habits, why would you not wake up at 4:30? Richard Feloni: Well what does this bring to you? Jocko Willink: Waking up early? You just get a jump on the day. The reason I wake up at 4:30 in the morning is because no one else is awake yet, so that gives me the opportunity to do things that I need to get done, kinda selfishly for myself, and the big one in that category is working out. And it doesn't feel good at 4:30 when you get up, but by the time 7 o'clock rolls around, and you've already worked out, and you've already got some work done, and you've got some time to say goodbye to your kids before they go to school? It's infinitely better than sleeping in until 6:45, and you get out of bed, and now you've missed your kids going to school, or whatever. You're not prepared for the day, it's awful. Feloni: So if someone, maybe they don't have time to work out or they just need something that could be like a quick fix, is there something that you recommend? Willink: Oh yeah, workouts don't have to take a long time. Workouts can be very quick. Matter of fact, go do two minutes of burpees, as many burpees as you can, in two minutes, or four minutes, or six minutes, go and sprint, go and do anything very intensely, for a short period of time and you'll get great benefit out of it. Feloni: Something I'm sure you hear a lot is 4:30, like this either just can't fit into my schedule, or if I'm gonna be realistic, I'm probably not gonna wake up at 4:30, what do you tell people who say that? Willink: Yeah, and there's people that work night shifts, and there's people that it's unhealthy for them, they can't fall as-- it's like no, be healthy, get enough sleep, but, first of all, wake up at the same time every day and, if you pick that time and you start waking up at the same time every day, that's very good for you. It doesn't have to be 4:30, it could be 6:30, it could be 7, I don't know what your personal schedule is, but find out a time, pick it, set it, stick to it, and maintain that schedule, and that's gonna end up better for you. I recommend it's earlier. I recommend that you go to bed earlier, 'cause what are you doing at night, most of the time? Most of the time at night, you're not working on anything super productive, you're just winding down and watching stupid YouTube videos, or surfing the internet, reading clickbait stories, right? Don't do that, instead, go to sleep, and then wake up early. Feloni: Could you explain that notion of discipline equals freedom? Willink: If you want more freedom in your life, you have to have more discipline. If you don't have any discipline, you'll end up with absolutely no freedom, you'll end up being a slave to other people that boss you around. There's all kind of problems that can occur, if you don't have discipline in your life. And the more discipline you have, the more freedom you're gonna have. Feloni: So just the discipline of the Seals, will never-- it's impossible to leave? Willink: No, it's possible to leave, there's retired seals all over the place that are undisciplined. They've moved on, and they don't care about that anymore. It's fine, I don't judge other people on what they're doin', like they're probably stoked to sleep in and hang out with their kids, and eat breakfast in bed, that's fine. I don't have anything against that. But for me? I wanna get up and go.

Hugh Hefner's Son Tells Us What It Was Like Growing Up In The Playboy Mansion
 
04:43
While most people associate the Playboy Mansion with scantily clad playmates and sex-fueled debauchery, it served as the childhood home for Hugh Hefner's sons. Now 23, Hefner's youngest son, Cooper, recounts his childhood spent in what many consider to be a sort of adult fantasyland. For Cooper, it was quite the opposite: a child's wonderland fueled by Indiana Jones-inspired adventures in the Grotto, a zoo full of exotic animals, and epic games of hide-and-seek played in the mansion's private forest of redwood trees. Cooper shared his experiences growing up inside the mansion, and invited Business Insider along on a private tour of the grounds. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI Video On Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1bkB8qg Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

The Right Way To Eat Sushi, According To Renowned Japanese Chef Nobu Matsuhisa
 
03:09
Nobu Matsuhisa, owner of Nobu Restaurants and Hotels and author of "Nobu: A Memoir," shares how to eat sushi the traditional Japanese way. Following is a transcript of the video; it has been edited for clarity. Nobu Matsuhisa: I’m Nobu Matsuhisa, owner of Nobu Restaurants Group and Hotels. Chef Matsuhisa opened his first restaurant in 1987 in Los Angeles; today he owns 47. And there are six Nobu hotels around the world. Matsuhisa: You don’t need extra wasabi. Wasabi is always inside, between the rice and fish. So you can use chopsticks or your fingers — it doesn’t matter. Use what's more comfortable. OK, here is wasabi and the ginger. Normally, people take the wasabi and dip soy sauce here, right? But for me, it means a more traditional way. A piece of the fish, dip — put the soy sauce and wasabi on the middle of the fish. Then not much soy sauce. So these are the three ways: sashimi, nigiri, and roll. Nigiri sushi. Make half-turn, take the chopstick and put soy sauce on the fish side. You can see no rice. Just a touch of the soy sauce on the top of the fish. But now, ginger. A piece of ginger, after one bite, if you try the next one, some tuna or shrimp or whitefish, take one piece of the ginger. Clean the salmon taste, then try the next pieces. So, the sushi roll. Take this one, and this is no choice. Put the soy sauce in the rice but just a little. Just a little, then one bite. So everything is one bite. Don’t bite two bites. I think it’s better to eat more the light, then a little bit heavy. It means more fatty fish at the end. The final sushi may be better as a roll, even more — a cucumber, not like a fish. So cucumber roll, oshinko roll, and sour prawns. This is my way. I like that. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

What Tony Robbins Does Every Morning
 
02:54
For years, Tony Robbins has been starting his mornings with a 10-minute ritual that gives him a boost of energy and prepares him for the day. On a recent trip to Robbins' Fiji resort Namale, where he was hosting the winners of Shopify's Build a Bigger Business competition, he showed Business Insider how to perform what he calls "priming." Robbins, 57, is the world's most famous life and business coach and is as busy as ever, averaging 60 events each year. He developed priming as a way to maintain his energy and focus. The routine, which involves a forceful breathing exercise and visualization of light pouring through your head, can seem pretty wild, but it's a slightly adapted version of a yoga technique called Kapalabhati Pranayama breathing and Buddhist mindfulness meditation. Following is a transcript of the video. Tony Robbins: My very first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is — I want to get my head right. I do this thing called "priming." Now, some people get up in the morning and they meditate, and I think meditation is wonderful. But I haven't met many people that can not think thoughts. This is a different outcome. This is about priming yourself. It's about putting yourself in a state where your mind and body will respond accordingly. We'll do three steps. It's really simple — over 10 minutes. So why don't you sit down and I'll guide you through it. So, just get really comfortable. You want to be sitting up. Is that back enough for you to be able to relax? Richard Feloni: Yeah. Robbins: OK, cool. And then the first thing you're gonna do is your hands are gonna come up as you take the breath in and then you're gonna explode out the nose down. Good. Now, relax. Keep your eyes closed. Have your hands open, if you would, on your lap face-up like that. Just feel whatever you feel. Just take it in. And you don't even have to respond to me anymore. You just enjoy it and take it in. And now just let your body relax deeply. And I'd like you to begin to think of a moment in your life that you could feel really grateful for if you wanted to. It could be something little, Rich, or it could be something big. It doesn't matter. It could be from your childhood or this week. It doesn't matter. Do your best to remember it and then step into it as if you were there, kind of like stepping into your body and seeing what you saw then through your own eyes. Hearing what you heard then. Feeling what you felt then. Savor it. Maximize that sense of appreciation or enjoyment or gratitude. Enjoy it. Feel it. Fill up with it. And now we're gonna shift to the last piece. Really simple. All you're gonna do is focus on three things, one at a time, that you want to accomplish. Three things you want to achieve. Live it and feel it and experience it. How was that? Feloni: It was good! Robbins: Yeah? What'd you feel? Feloni: It feels calming. Refreshing. It was good to like, escape inside myself. Robbins: There's two worlds to master – the external world and the internal world. They both have to be mastered, but if you master the external world, you know, a la, you know, Robin Williams, but you don't master the internal world, there's a big price. This is the one to master first. And so I start my day by making that – so I have this base to deal with. I'm gonna live from gratitude today. I'm gonna live from blessing – you know, I'm gonna be a blessing in people's lives today. I'm gonna get stronger today. And I'm gonna achieve what I'm here and committed to do. And then the whole thing, you know, we did that one in a little less than 10 minutes. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Shaq Spent $1 Million In One Day
 
01:59
In 1992, the legendary NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal (then only 20 years-old) made a financial mistake that forever changed the way he handled his money. Shaq stopped by Business Insider to talk about his collaboration with home security technology company Ring, to raise awareness about how homeowners can better protect their property this holiday season. Shaq recently kicked off a campaign with Ring's CEO Jamie Siminoff around protecting holiday package deliveries - specifically as National Package Protection Day approaches on Nov. 29. Following is a transcript of the video. [Shaq once spent $1 million in one day. It was 1992 and he was 20 years old. He'd just signed an endorsement deal with a trading card company.] Shaquille O'Neal: It was me being overly happy-slash-irresponsible. My agent called me and said, "Hey, you've got a million dollars." But I didn't subtract his 15%, right? I didn't subtract the Texas state tax or the FICA. So, in my mind, I was just trying to do the simple math. I always wanted a fancy Mercedes-Benz. I used to go to the 7-Eleven and get the fake Mercedes, the little ones and just drive them, you know, on top of my bed and — I'm gonna get one of these one day. So, once I knew I got that million dollars, I went to the bank like a big-time guy and set up a little checking account. And I said "Okay, I've got a million dollars. Here you go, sir." I said, "I'll be back." So, I went to the Mercedes dealership. The guy says $150,000. I write him a check, give it to him. So now, in my head, a million minus $150,000, I've still got $850,000 left, right? So, I get home. My father says "That's nice. Where's mine at?" Go buy the same car for my father. I'm good. I've got $700,000 left. And then came back home. My mother said, "I want the smaller version," which cost $100,000, so in my mind, I've got $600,000. So now, I've gotta go do what all the homeboys do — gotta buy rings and diamonds and earrings and this and that. A couple of days later, the bank manager called me in and he sat me down and he said, "I've been following you two or three years. Love your career. You're probably gonna be a fabulous player and make a lot of money. But, you know a lot of you guys, when you're done playing, don't have anything. I don't want you to be like that. I want you to take a look at this." And I was like 50, $60,000 in the hole. So, I was just writing checks. I was buying TVs. I was just buying stuff I didn't even need. So after that, I said, "You know what? I need to get me a business manager." Luckily, I had a lot of hard lessons early, but I'm the type of guy that — I don't like to miss two shots in a row, even if it's a free throw.

What It Takes To Be An NBA Referee
 
03:46
It takes years and a series of trials to get to the NBA level of officiating. Zach Zarba is a 15-year NBA referee. Like many professional referees, he started by refereeing little kids and eventually moved up to the high school and college levels. Now he shares the court with the likes of LeBron James and Stephen Curry.  Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: It's always easy to blame the referee. But what's it like to be that Official? Zach Zarba: My name is Zach Zarba and I'm a 15-year NBA referee. The pressure is underestimated — you know, it's taken for granted sometimes. It takes a lot to be able to function and exist in a pressure-filled environment and you have to be calm. Zach has had his fair share of court time. He played D3 basketball for SUNY New Paltz. Zarba: My father was a baseball, local baseball umpire in Brooklyn and he did high school and college and he kind of gave me the idea to try officiating. How did Zach become one of the NBA's 65 referees? It's a long road to reach his level. Zarba: You start from the bottom. You start from CYO 4, 5-year-olds, 6 year olds. You work your way up. You do high school basketball, you do a little bit of college. I did a lot of work in the New York City Pro Am leagues and and then the D-League. If you're good enough, you go to training camp. If that goes well, you might be recruited to the G-League. Only those at the top of the G-League get accepted as NBA referees Zarba: You have to be able to run up and down with the best athletes in the world. You have to stay light. The lighter you are, the less wear and tear on your legs, on your knees, on your feet. That's going to give you a longer career. Clearly, staying in shape is key. How does Zach stay trim? Zarba: So, for me personally, it's an hour cardio a day. It’s core work, it's you know, abs. It's a lot of weight work on the legs to protect the knees. Referees have to keep more than just their bodies in shape. Zarba: I do a lot of meditation during the day before the game and stuff like that just in order to find a calm place in order to have clarity because we're making decisions that likely affect people's careers, people's jobs. Someone wins, someone loses and you just want the utmost clarity and peace in a charged environment. On game day, Zach and his fellow officials will meet around 11 a.m. to catch up. They'll head to the arena 90 minutes before tip-off to run through their pre-game routine. Zarba: The interaction with players is an ongoing art. Some nights are easier than others, but communication is key. Communication and listening skills are huge. At the end of the day, we may agree to disagree on some subjects, but the respect comes both ways. We are not more lenient with the stars. I would say the star players actually are disadvantaged more than anyone else. You're going to concede that we make mistakes, which we do, the mistakes we make are going to be on the people who have the ball in their hand 75% of the time, which in this case is the star players. They hold the ball 75% of the time. They put pressure on the defense and pressure on the officials, and if and when mistakes are made, they're usually made with them. On top of the stress of the game, refs are on the road a ton. Sometimes for up to 10 days at a time Zarba: The travel is difficult. For the more veteran guys, it's 24, 25 nights gone from your family a month. It's basically 8 months on and then 4 months off because all that time gone during the winter, you have to reconnect with your family and so we're home during the summer.

How Bill Gates Makes And Spends His $89 Billion Fortune
 
01:42
With a net worth of approximately $89 billion, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is one of the wealthiest men in the world. If he spent $1 million a day, it'd take him 245 years to spend his fortune. Here's how he made all that cash. In 1975, Gates co-founded Microsoft. At 31, he became the world's youngest billionaire at the time. In 1995, he released Windows 95 and became the world's richest man. He's been at the top of the list ever since. Gates is also a leading philanthropist. He stepped down as Microsoft CEO to focus on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It has given away $41.3 billion to charity. Gates doesn't forget to splurge on himself, though. He bought a $21 million jet in 1997. He's had tons of luxurious cars over the years. He even once got arrested for speeding in a Porsche 911. Gates has an extensive art collection. In 1988, he spent $36 million on a Winslow Homer painting. That piece hangs in his $63 million home in Seattle. It has 24 bathrooms, 6 kitchens, a reception hall that holds 200 people, a home theater, and an artificial stream stocked with fish. In 2010, Bill, Melinda, and Warren Buffett created the "The Giving Pledge." Those who join pledge to give half of their wealth to charity. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

How Jay-Z And Diddy Made Millions Off Of 'Cheap Grapes'
 
03:41
Zack O'Malley Greenburg, author of 3 Kings: Diddy, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, and Hip-Hop's Multibillion-Dollar Rise discusses how hip hop moguls, Jay-Z and Diddy, leveraged their fame to create two million-dollar brands. Following is a transcript of the video. Zack O'Malley Greenburg: Just goes to show how you can leverage your fame beyond just the music. About a decade ago The Economist interviewed the director of the company that makes Cristal Champagne, one of the most expensive champagnes in the world favored by Russian tsars over history, he was asked, what did he think about all these rappers drinking Cristal Champagne and he basically said, "Well, we can't forbid "people from buying it." Not exactly a ringing endorsement of a new customer base. He thought that rappers didn't read The Economist but he was wrong. Jay-Z heard about his comments, he removed it from his 40/40 Club, and more importantly he started issuing this sort of, directive to his fans, not to drink it either. And instead of rapping about Cristal, he put his money where is mouth was, he ended up investing in, and eventually taking over French champagne brand called Armand de Brignac, AKA Ace of Spades. You see this in his videos, the gold bottles, he raps about it all the time, and this has now become one of his most valuable assets in his entire portfolio. Diddy does not have his own champagne, however he has something just as or perhaps even more valuable, which is his deal with Diageo's Ciroc vodka. He started out with them in the late 2000s, and at that point, Ciroc was just a middling vodka brand being shilled by no-name former NFL players. They decided to take a chance on Diddy, and they didn't really have anything to lose, because Ciroc wasn't doing very well. It was about the fiftieth ranked vodka in the world and so Diddy came on and he applied his typical marketing panache and his shock and awe salesmanship, this was around the time that Barack Obama was running for president. He started calling himself Ciroc Obama, giving that free product placement, within only a few years, Ciroc was number two in the premium vodka category, to only Grey Goose doin' about two million cases a year. There's a really fascinating connection between Diddy and Jay-Z in the spirits world. Between the two of them, I mean you think, you know same job description, hip hop mogul, two very different guys, two very different approaches. But born a month apart, in the same city, both named Shawn and they both use the same cheap grape as the base of two of their most important products, that's the Trebbiano grape, which is considered by wine officials to be, you know sort of a, a nothing grape, it's a filler, it's table wine. Jay-Z has a Cognac called D'Usse, which is a joint venture with Bacardi. Of course, if you're making Cognac, it doesn't really matter because they're grapes that you have to include in order to be officially called Cognac. As far as Diddy's Ciroc vodka goes, using grapes is rather unorthodox, vodka is typically made out of potatoes or grains or something like that. So that was kind of his first philosophy with Ciroc is to center on the sexiness of the grape. Diddy: One-and-a-half ounces of Ciroc vodka, you can only make it with Ciroc vodka, other vodkas don't work. Greenburg: One thing that gets kind of lost in all of the promotion of Ciroc and such, is that Trebbiano is actually a very cheap grape and not some super-fancy thing. At the end of the day, Jay-Z and Diddy are both excellent, savvy businessmen. Of course they're not gonna get the most expensive grape because in order to do well on a product, you have to have a low cost, and you have to have a high price. They've grasped that better than anybody and the success that they've had with Ciroc and D'Usse certainly go to prove that as well. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

The Rise And Fall Of Hooters Air
 
06:03
You might not remember it, but at one point Hooters had an airline. Hooters Air launched in 2003, but closed about three years later. The company cited a number of reasons for the airline's failure, including a $40 million loss. But in the short time that Hooters Air existed, it made a major economic impact on one city in particular — Myrtle Beach, South Carolina — that's where the airline was headquartered, and where it brought thousands of tourists every week. We talked to people who worked for Hooters Air — flight attendants and one pilot (who asked to remain anonymous). They told us what it was really like to work for the airline (which featured two Hooters Girls on every flight) and dispelled some common misperceptions about what it was like to fly it. Hooters declined to comment for this story. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

How MoviePass Makes Money, According To Its CEO
 
03:35
By now, most people have heard of MoviePass and their deal of a movie a day in theaters for the price of $9.95 per month. In fact, there are multiple subreddits dedicated to MoviePass. Even elitist moviegoers forego referencing Rotten Tomatoes for movie recommendations now that MoviePass has made the theater experience financially accessible. Users of MoviePass ask about limitations of the subscription service from restrictions on theater locations to whether or not users are allowed to see the same movie twice. There are actually few limitations of service which further poses the question, how does MoviePass make money? Mitch Lowe, CEO of MoviePass, sat down with Senior Correspondent Steve Kovach to discuss the MoviePass business model and the many ways MoviePass turns a profit. Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Steve Kovach: It's a service that sounds too good to be true. MoviePass, you pay 10 bucks a month, and you can watch pretty much unlimited movies in theaters. You lose money when I see one movie. How does this business model work out for you in the end? Mitch Lowe: I always find it interesting that, to get that question, because, you know, Netflix has to borrow billions of dollars a year to stay in business; to create the content, that they don't earn enough money to pay for. If you read the reports about Spotify, they spent two billion dollars more on content than the revenue they generated. And we're no different. We're building a big subscriber base of film lovers who, over time, we have dozens of ways to make money. For example, marketing on behalf of studios. The film distribution system is completely broken. It's so hard to get a film out in the theater that's not a big blockbuster hit. And there's hundreds of millions of dollars spent marketing those films. We're an incredibly effective partner for those studios. We have people who are coming to our site, you know, four and five times a week where we can sell advertising. And we're on our way to get to break-even on our subscription. Steve Kovach: So right now, just the subscription part, you're essentially break-even, maybe sometimes a little bit profitable. Mitch Lowe: We're not there yet. When you do kind of an all-you-can-eat subscription, the first people who join are people in New York, people who go, "Geez, it's a no-brainer. I'm spending $15 on a ticket. This is $10, I'm gonna save money on my first ticket." Or they're the 11% of moviegoers who already go to 18 films a year. Over time, slowly but surely, you start to acquire more of the casual moviegoers. This is why we priced it at $9.95. So where 89% of film-goers, over 200 million people, only see four movies year. And they spend $40 to $60 a year on movie tickets. When they join MoviePass, now they're spending $120. We're increasing their consumption and they'll do it because it's $9.95 and it's an unlimited value for them. Steve Kovach: So the hope is, it's kind of like the gym membership model, that maybe some of these people won't actually go to as many movies, and they'll, kind of, make up for the people who are going every day. Is that how you're thinking about it? Mitch Lowe: Not quite. What it ends up is, if you look at the distribution between the casual moviegoer who now is going about 10, 11 times a year. That's roughly what, they're spending $9.95 and they're going a little bit less than one a month. They're kind of breaking even on it. And we add all these other values, like special screenings that are only for MoviePass subscribers. We're going to bring back some of the classics into the big screen that, you know, people haven't seen on the big screen ever, that will be exclusive for MoviePass subscribers. Steve Kovach: So you're big pitch, is we have well over two million subscribers now, we should easily get to five by the end of the year, it's just going to grow from there. We're going to juice those numbers a little bit by offering these deals once every few weeks. Then you go to marketers and say, what can we do, how can we work with you? How can you pay us to access these people? Mitch Lowe: Exactly, and our subscribers are so thrilled with the value they are getting, that they're very open to recommendations.
