5 Things You Didnt Know About Dan Bilzerian

A few weeks ago, Lauryn & Michael flew to Vegas to meet and record with Dan Bilzerian.

How do we even start to describe him?

He is a venture capitalist & author who has carved out a name for himself as a high-stakes professional poker champion, adrenaline seeker, & Instagram sensation. His lifestyle, love for danger, and careless attitude have earned him international acclaim.

In his podcast episode he goes over what his childhood was like & his experience with bullying, to how he got rich in the gambling industry & what it’s like to live a day in his life.

He discusses his experience with women, the strategies he uses to pick up girls & why he chooses to date multiple women at a time. We also see a vulnerable side & he gives us the truth about his feelings regarding his reputation, what he has to say to the people who hate him, and why he allows people to underestimate him.

It’s a must-listen for sure. Whether you love him or hate him, you’re sure to learn something about him that might change your opinion. That’s why today we want to share 5 unsuspecting things we learned about him in the candid episode. Let’s go…

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Dan Bilzerian

♡ he entered the Navy SEALS training program

This is a wild part of the podcast. He talks about some injuries he had while he endured the training & his emotions and feelings towards the higher ranks.

♡ he’s over social media

Our favorite line from Dan: “social media is a video game that I beat 8 years ago.” It was refreshing to hear he is no longer a fan of social platforms but they’re great for business. In fact, he said social media is the worst thing to happen to society.

♡ pleasure and happiness are different

You’ll have to listen to the episode for his take on this one. You might be surprised by how he defines the two after you take a look at his Instagram feed.

♡ he embraces people’s assumptions about him

This is something that can be used to your advantage. It helped Dan in poker and it can help you in your life too.

♡ he just wrote his own book, all by himself.

Lauryn & Michael could not put Dan’s book, The Setup, down. Lauryn immediately knew they had to interview him AND Dan wrote the entire book himself, without a ghostwriter so you can be sure it’s as real and raw as it gets. Not to mention his foreword is by David Goggins. Tune into the podcast to learn how they met.

Have you listened yet? What was your top takeaway from the episode. Be sure to grab his book The Setup too. Like we said, Lauryn couldn’t put it down and literally LOL’d while reading it.
