BHP 005: Mind Pump Media | Building A Business Empire

Mind Pump Media is one of the leading voices in raw, unfiltered, no-BS health and fitness information. They’re also incredibly savvy and successful businessmen.

In an industry rife with misleading information, ulterior motives, even outright deception, Mind Pump’s intentionally unfiltered – and unapologetic – approach resonates with an audience hungry for the truth.

In this episode of the Better Human Project, I sit down with the trio of Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer and Justin Andrews in Mind Pump’s San Jose, CA studio to find out how they’ve built such a massive media company in the last 3 years and what lesson other creators, leaders, and businesses can learn from their approach.
