We take fan questions and talk about things Tim is never asked like what was his childhood nickname, what is he going to name his kids, how to get out of a Mexican jail and much more. You can see the full list of questions I asked Tim below with links to everything we talked about in this EPIC Q&A episode.

Tim has influenced me to maintain integrity and honesty. He and Noah are examples of success with integrity.

Damn, Noah, I love how you delivered DIFFERENT answers from Tim on this podcast. As one of Tim’s unabashed fanboys, I really appreciated this. Furthermore, it’s great how you KEEP IT REAL Noah! I’ve followed you (In the least creepy way possible) for a while and have really enjoyed learning marketing from you and also have used sumome on my fitness website as well as my boss’s site (Which has gathered 15,000+ emails in the last 10-11 months). Thank you Noah!

Hi Noah, just start listening to your podcast. And all I can say is – I love it too much. I think after a very long time, I felt really happier and connected and feeling very light. Love it too much . Can’t wait to listen your next episode. Hope you have a great time Noah. Bye

Loved this podcast by Tim, Noah.

I loved his strategy on free to then do ultra-premium. I just started a new site and I’m thinking about my monetization strategy and will definitely consider that. Because all of that free goodies can help build strong relationships.

Great first episode.

Yes Noah – Found you from mixergy. Love the new podcast, feels real, like a friends giving you a kick up the arse rather than an interview. It was Tim that started me on this journey and gave me the confidence to go from 50K to 150K in less than 2 yrs. Thanks to you, I’m about to start a new chapter!

Noah, thanks for posting, seems from the talk you want your fans to take action and follow your recommendations. Tim looks to be much more relaxed on the matter /and i agree with the guy/. Be patient!
