In this season 2 of the Alchemist Nation Real Estate Podcast Episode #136, I talk to Ron White who I believe has memorized more names on the planet than everyone else. I have been struggling to find Ron and for years I have been looking for the secrets to memorization and suddenly I join this mastermind with Ken Walls and he just happened to show up and be there. I wanted to know what made Ron start this whole thing of memorization and before anything else, I wanted to know what is the craziest thing that he was ever memorized. He says that if you have been trying to look for him, his marketing sucks but he has been doing his memorization thing for 30 years and he is a two time US memory champion, he used to hold the fastest record to memorize decks of cards in the United States which he did in a minute and 27 seconds. He held the record the longest number ever memorized which was in 5 minutes which was a 167 digit number. The craziest thing Ron has done was on Kal Penn's show called Superhuman with Mike Tyson where they had 15 models and each girl gave him 3 things about her 1) - Her name, 2) - A fact about her and 3) - Her Telephone number which was a 10 digit one. So Mike Tyson told me to call the girl with the red hat by phone and he dial her number and her phone rang. Ron White offers 3 pieces of advice to 20-year-old Ron on how to move him where he is faster, happier and wealthier. 1) - Get a good cpa and bookkeeper 2) - You're going to die so take the risk if it is not going to kill you. 3) - Comparison is the thief of joy.

You've made it! 11:30 - CNBC recently released an article about actor Kal Penn applying for a job at the White House under the Obama administration.
