Dean Graziosi is a New York Times best-selling author, real estate investor, and successful entrepreneur. But it didn't come easy. He learned how to transform a tumultuous childhood into fuel for personal growth and business development.

In this episode, he and Chris talk about how each of our unique experiences shape who we become and why it's important to identify, question and even change the beliefs we hold.

His path was windy, riddled with self-doubt and included plenty of mistakes along the way. But you don't become business partners with Tony Robbins by giving up.

Thanks to Framer and Hover for sponsoring this episode.

In this episode of Deep Dive, Chris talks with content creator Unmesh Dinda, but you might know him better by his YouTube moniker, PiXimperfect. He teaches people everything there is to know about Adobe Photoshop and with over 2 million subscribers, he seems to be doing something right.

But as you will soon hear, Unmesh does not consider himself a YouTuber. He is a teacher, first and foremost. Through this fun and transparent conversation he will explain why helping people will get you everything that you want in life.
