Today’s guest is the award-winning comedian, Jeff Kreisler. He is a triple threat! A writer, performer and producer with impressive Ivy League credentials… who believes that the world can be saved with more thinking, passion, and aggressive naps!

I actually had the opportunity to cross paths with him at His work, including his bestselling satire “Get Rich Cheating,” has been praised by mainstream media including The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, CNBC, and San Francisco Chronicle, among others. Jeff is a sought-after corporate speaker and was the featured comedian at The 2011 Economist’s World Conference, alongside former President Bill Clinton. He is a graduate of Princeton and Virginia Law School, a former attorney and private investigator.

Several takeaways from our interview:

— Why Jeff turned down 6-figure job opportunities that could have put him on a partner track at leading law firms

— Why he doesn’t like to use automatic bill pay

— The best thing that his parents gave him (hint: it’s not his allowance or first car!)
