Gene Simmons from KISS – A Rags-to-Riches Story

Gene Simmons

Today I have Gene Simmons on the show, from the rock band KISS.

While you probably first heard of Gene from his music, he’s also very involved in a multitude of investments and different business.

With decades of experience under his belt, I thought it would be great to pick his brain on what drives him to keep going after already achieving this high level of success. We also dive into how he selects his investment and business opportunities, how he maintains peak performance, and lessons he would pass on to a younger version of himself.
