Tips

  • Eric's Tip: Don't volunteer to get bumped from a flight because involuntary bumping pays out much more
  • .
  • Darren's Tip: If you're a celebrity, live like people are watching—because they probably are or will someday. (This tip is more specifically for Hulk Hogan.)
  • Adam's Tip: Ignore fad diets and quick fixes to health and weight issues. Instead, find a healthier diet and exercise plan that you can do forever. Start with a little and work your way up. Make lasting changes, not temporary ones that you'll most likely undo or fail at. Very few people find real success with diets that don't suit them, even for short periods of time.
