Today, we go back to some lessons from a game that mimics life – the game of poker. We welcome Alec Torelli to the show. Alec is a professional high stakes poker player, entrepreneur, and keynote speaker. He is the founder of Conscious Poker, a popular poker training platform. He has spend 14 years as a poker pro, including 3 he spent in Macau.
It goes without saying that Alec has made many high-pressure decisions under uncertainty and with high stakes involved. It also goes without saying that his experience in doing so creates many transferable insights from the poker table to other aspects of life and business. We cover a lot of these lessons in this wonderful conversation, including:
- The ins and outs of decision-making;
- The role of luck in life;
- Handling adversity;
- Managing your bankroll;
- Reading body language;
- Managing emotions;
- The life of a pro poker player;
- Tons more!
