Today, I have a finance celebrity on the Skinny-Fat Transformation Podcast: Mikael Syding.
Mikael retired at age 42 as a decamillionaire (USD) and was awarded Europe’s Best Hedge Fund Manager of the Decade after outperforming the financial market with 600% for a decade!
Currently, he’s the only person in the world who has had the honour to achieve this award, and he holds it proudly here in a picture with me:
Besides being one of the most successful people in finance, Mikael has a 310lbs. bench press and phenomenal health for someone in his forties.
This summer I visited Mikael in his apartment in Stockholm to interview him on a variety of topics including:
- Fast cars: What’s it like to own a Lambourghini and is it worth it?
- Career: Should you “whore out” and work a boring job to make a lot of money or work a job you love?
- Women: Will money make you successful with women?
- Health: How do you maintain your health while working countless 80 hour work weeks?
- Bodybuilding: How to bench press 310lbs. in your forties.
I highly respect Mikael and he’s my biggest role-model, therefore I want to share the interview below..
