EP056: Picking The Brain of Multi-Millionaire Steve Mehr (2015 Throwback)

Steve Mehr is a badass by many standards. Raised by Iranian immigrants, this man hustled his way to the top selling stereos and whatever he could flip, reinvesting until he had a legit business.

Now, he’s an attorney and multi-millionaire entrepreneur who recently owned one of the biggest law firms in California — as well as a portfolio of other successful ventures. Dude is the real deal. 

Listen in to the interview so you too can feel his passion, hear what it takes to succeed and learn from his extensive experience.
