only howard stern has gotten away with charging people to pay for radio
and then only working three days a week.
if that doesnt make him your hero how about this:
he says exactly whats on his mind
he’s filthy rich
his wife is beautiful, wonderful, and has a heart of gold.
he interviews people better than anyone.
sadly the demons in his life appear to be overwhelming:
he doesn’t seem to truly enjoy his success
he doesnt seem to like himself
he doesnt get the respect that lesser broadcasters get
his longtime sidekick robin seems extremely ill.
so what are the lessons we can learn from howard?
– be careful what you ask for
– appreciate yourself
– your best asset is your uniqueness, own it
ive been listening to howard for maybe 20 years now,
hes a bigger influence on my life than you probably know.
so what’s my favorite interview he’s given? probably the one he did in 1996 with JFK Jr.
