Rafael Badziag is a global entrepreneur, best-selling author, top TED speaker and angel investor. He is a valued expert in psychology of entrepreneurship, specializing in self-made billionaires and was featured on NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX as well as in USA Today, Wall Street Journal and other national newspapers and TV networks in several countries.

In the late nineties he built his first multi-million dollar business Raddiscount.de pioneering e-commerce in Europe. It was the first bike online-shop in Germany, which he developed into an established business in the German speaking market. He then expanded his ventures into an array of internet-based services and assets in several countries.

His passion is learning his limits and crossing them as well as learning the limitations of the people around him and helping them to overcome those.

Rafael is founder of the NoLimits project, where he fights against the limitations of his body, mind and soul. You may find him sprinting on a treacherous mountain trail, running a 111 km ultra race across the Sahara Desert, or dancing a tango on the floor of a fancy Milonga. On his English blog, NoLimits.co, he describes his extreme experiences and inspires others to follow his example, to also undertake challenges and to reach seemingly unachievable goals. The motto of this project is given by T.S. Eliot’s words: “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” The mission here is to inspire the readers to live their lives fully with passion and zeal, to make them leave their limits behind them, so they can rise above the boundaries of mediocrity and experience their full potential, exceptional success and deep satisfaction in their lives.

His expeditions and remarkable journeys have taken him several times around the world, from the ice desert of Antarctica through the hottest deserts on the planet to the Peaks of the Seven Summits. He has visited all seven continents.

Rafael has given some of the most popular TED talks in history that have been watched over 2 million times.

The book “Ready, Set, Go!” that he has co-authored with Brian Tracy, the world’s greatest business teacher and personal performance trainer, and some other top experts became an Amazon bestseller in multiple categories and has earned Rafael the Quilly Award.

Recently, Rafael has been travelling the world and meeting the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, all of them self-made billionaires, from various regions, industries, cultures, religions and age groups. He managed to open the most inaccessible doors and got access to some of the wealthiest people on the planet. By conducting face-to-face interviews with them he was able to obtain first hand information on their methods and mindsets. He reveals their success secrets on his website TheBillionDollarSecret.com, the corresponding YouTube channel as well as the upcoming book with the same title.

Some people call him The Napoleon Hill of the 21st Century, others - The Billionaire Magnet.

His writing and business activities have a truly global scope.

Rafael is a member of the National Association of Experts, Writers & Speakers. He was recently inducted into the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors.

He collaborated with Jack Canfield and Brian Tracy among other best-selling authors.

He was influenced by Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Mark Cuban, Tim Draper, Napoleon Hill, Tony Robbins, T. Harv Ecker, Tim Ferriss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, enjoyed it, easy to follow, inspiring opening
By Brian Delrosario on January 27, 2022
Recommend. 328 pages. It’s a quick read and starts well. Like much else in life, you may 80/20 the content. In my opinion, you’ll find the 80/20 in Chapter 6 (The Six Skills of Business Mastery) and Chapter 7 (The Six Habits of Wealth).

I won’t give up too much of the book, but the principles outlined probably sound very similar to other books on entrepreneurship and personal development. On the six skills of business mastery, five are people skills. On the six wealth habits, I’d say one can summarize them as constant improvement of the whole person towards a goal.

I enjoyed how the book opens with stories of rags to riches. The one that sticks out the most is the story of Infosys and its founder, N. R. Narayana Murthy. I’ll quickly summarize it here. In India, 1981, at age 35, Narayana founded Infosys with several partners. Infosys is a computer company. He founded the company with frequent power outages and with no computer.

Back then, he needed a license to obtain a computer, and he spent three years and 50 visits from Bangalore to Delhi to get that license. The distance was 1,500 miles, and he was too poor to afford a plane ticket. So, he traveled two days each way (four days round trip). That’s 200 days over three years just commuting, fighting bureaucracy!

So what about doing any computer work during those three years? Narayana found a customer in America who allowed Infosys to program on his computer. Six of the cofounders went to America while Narayana remained in India.

What about communicating? On average, it took about five to seven years to get a phone line back then. Infosys only took one year. In the meantime, Narayana used a public phone at a post office to reach the cofounders and customers in America. However, if they needed to call him, they couldn’t. When Narayana finally did get a phone line, most of the time, there wasn’t a signal, and when there was, it was usually busy.

How did the American team send work back to India? It would’ve taken about three weeks by mail to send programming code one way. Infosys decided to use fax instead, which generated additional problems, which no doubt made for an even more incredible story to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books i have even Read
By Ali Azhar on August 15, 2021
Rafael Badziag has done a great job interviewing top billionaire business men in the world.
And condensing their knowledge, Mindset and way of doing business and life. This is pure gold. I would say many timers better then Think and grow rich as it is more practical you can apply right after reading the book. Its like have 20+ Billionaires as your personal mentor. Highly recommended for anyone who aspires to do big things in business and this beautiful world. Again thanks to all those billionaires for taking the time and sharing thier knowledge, mindset and way of doing business and life, And Rafael Badziag for working on this project for many year diligently for us readers and action takers.
