314 - [Anniversary Episode] Sara Blakely: How to Get a Billion Dollar Idea

Sara Blakely is a self-made billionaire. She’s the founder and creator of Spanx. I interviewed her exactly a year ago. But all of her advice (learned directly from DOING) is still impacting me today. I had to re-listen. And I hope you do, too.

 

I wrote an article "What I Learned From Spanx Founder Sara Blakely." Sometimes I re-read it to remind myself of everything she taught me. Some people are inspirations for life. Sara is one of those people. Check out the full post and learn what I learned at jamesaltucher.com/podcast.
