About Rafael Badziag
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.

We can recall the discussion in Alice in Wonderland between Alice and the Cheshire cat, "If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there." This simple logic underlines the idea that you need a planned destination or purpose in order to move toward your goal.
