Jesse Itzler

Jesse Itzler used to leave funny outgoing messages on his answering machine back in college. They were so good , they went viral, the old school way. Pre-Internet, people would tell friends, who would tell friends, who would tell more friends. This led him to a record deal with Delicious Vinyl.

To many people, landing a record deal is THE dream. Like, we got a DEAL, MAN!

This, however, was just the beginning for Jesse.

Jesse and Matt discuss how landing this deal led a lot of cool business doings in Itzler’s life including:

  • Creating music and video content for NBA (and other sports) teams.
  • Co founding Marquis Jets, the first private jet company allowing customers to “rent” versus “own”.
  • Becoming part owner of The Atlanta Hawks

There is a lot to be learned in this episode from a successful man who doesn’t seem to stress about any of it.

(They ran out of time before Matt could even ask about co-founding Zico Water or Jesse’s new book “Living with a Seal”, so hopefully there will be a part two.)
