UPDATE JULY 7th: Learned my lesson on this one!
So, exciting news today. I’ve been keeping this under wraps for a little bit as there has been a bunch of behind-the-scenes organization.

I have this saying: You are either changing and evolving, or you aren’t really living. To me, life is about reinvention.

The Rise To The Top is moving beyond business interviews and will now be focusing on a wide variety of interviews with interesting folks in a variety of industries ranging from entertainment to sports (and there is a heck of a lineup on its way).

It was just that time and I couldn’t be more pumped to tell you about it. After 2.5 years of doing purely business interviews with great people, I could feel it in my bones that it was time to evolve. Time for something new.

Does this mean I’ll never again interview entrepreneurs or talk business? Not at all. My goal is to bring you interesting interviews with awesome people and that is going to continue to happen in a HUGE way.

For example you might be seeing interviews from:
-Best-selling non-business authors
-Comedians
-Musicians
-Entertainers
-Performers
-Athletes
-Artists in all types of fields
-Wresting superstars from the 80’s.

…and more. MANY more.

I’m shaking a bit as I write this. Not out of nervousness, but out of anticipation. When I started The Rise To The Top in 2008, we had maybe four viewers/listeners including Dad, Mom, Grandma and myself. Now, well over 100,000+ are tuning in on computers, mobile phones, tablets, and even TV’s (through Roku and Connected TV) which is extremely humbling and I’m excited to grow even further.

Let the new era begin! None of this would be possible without you.

The fun starts Tuesday, May 3rd….with best-selling author and rock&roll/pop culture journalist Neil Strauss.

    Congratulations David! Keep the awesome interviews coming!!

  • David,

    Congratulations on the direction. You always do great interviews. Deep down, I hope that you still lean towards business interviews, but nonetheless, I can’t wait to see where this takes you.

    Looking forward to seeing all these new folks you will be interviewing this upcoming year. Congrates to you.

  • Recently came upon your site and have watched and enjoyed many of your interviews. You share Rose’s and Morgan’s colloquial gift of of the gab. Hopefully expanding your slate of guests moves you towards a daily show like the before mentioned interviewers.

    Keep up the great work, David!

  • After watching many many interviews, I feel this is a necessary step forward. You have interviewed so many amazing guests and I could imagine after hearing many similar backstories and asking similar questions you would want to spice things up.
