Below is a podcast Q&A that appeared here on B&D back in July 2014.
It has not been available here for a couple of years so we thought it would be a fun time to re-release it.
The podcast Q&A is a 2 part series. Part 1 is below, part 2 will be released in a couple of days.
After one week I will release a brand new podcast for you.
If there are any questions or topics you would like covered in the new podcast, please leave a comment below this article.
I will get to every question I can.
In the meantime, enjoy the podcast from the vault…

You seem to have a massive wide neck, how did you get it it? In your old pics you had a pencil neck. I've been putting on mass everywhere, even though I only do bench, squat and deadlifts but the neck doesn't grow at all.

(About Me Fired from Job, 22 years old, currently living in Orlando, FL. $6,500.00 saved) I thought about moving to New York to work as a stock broker to bank money. Or work oil industry without any skills and work my ass off. Or start a business with no experience online or otherwise as self-employed. Your recommendation? Can I make money online before the money runs out?
11:56 Jacob says:
Since I’m working I a blog with the hopes of turning it into a profit making venture, my question will be relevant with that. I’ve been writing for a month now and my blog has had a few hundred visitors and a lot of views. However there has not been a single comment from anyone. So my question is, what are some steps to encourage participation from viewers?

Everything you write is awesome. I am moving towards financial freedom myself. My questions is: In your opinion does it really take money to make money? If you were to start a new website today would you blog or sell products online?

I would like to hear more information about the process of moving and living overseas, the good, bad, and ugly. How to navigate the visa process, how to find an affordable place to live, how to overcome language barriers, etc.
15:42 sex symbol says:
What are the assets that Victor Pride buys? Does Victor Pride invests?
15:53 Jakub says:
Might as well add on to this. I inquired as to whether Victor would make an article about this, he said he will “put that in the pipeline”. What assets do the rich buy?
16:19 6 100 says:

For all of us young guys out there (going into college), what is top skill we should improve on.
19:02 Alexander says:
Do you do any major SEO work or do you rely mostly on the content on the blog? When can we expect a new book from you? How does it feel to be a model for so many men? (please answer one of the last two if you only accept one question per reader) Thank you and have an awesome week.
23:18 Nick says:
When you were building up Bold and Determined several years ago, what was your daily routine like? Did you set a word count of X for daily writing, work in blocks of time on different aspects of the site, outsource certain elements like design/UI?
20:27 Buffguy says:
Are you using any PED (performance enhancing drugs)? Not that I am here to judge, I am just curious if one can attain your size without any use of hormones. If you do, I'd like to hear which ones you do use.

25:56 zessson says:
I am 23 , I got married when I was 19, my wife is 5 years older than me, I have a daughter , I am going to University part time, working as a gardener, I am trying real hard to do my best for the family, I also help my family financially who are living abroad, I am a guitar player, I had a dream of being a musician but now I have so many responsibilities on me , that I can't look up and work on my dream, when ever I think about it it kills me, my question is what would you do if you would be in my situation (I know you would never be here)? At this point I just want to be free and to do what I want but to even think it will be a sin, I have a lots of potential in many things but no space on work on it. Please leave a few words on my situation bro, I want to overcome.
27:33 WTFrankie says:
My minds on gaining size and building a business, but when I’m focused on one, the other suffers. My idea was to focus obsessively on business until I’m in a happy enough place to add the other. How did you handle your body goals when first creating Bold and Determined? / How would you approach it starting all over again?
29:01 Dylan Smith says:
Q1: How to improve slouched shoulders? My gym routine for shoulders/traps is overhead press, shoulder laterals (2 versions) and high pull. I gained some muscle, but the slouch remains.

31:36 Sebas says:
I would also like to know how you can get Superdrol in the States? You mentioned there are some other sites still selling it, not having much luck finding it (probably not looking in the right places). Tired of sluts, where have you had your most luck finding “good girls” (location wise)? Plus any other insight/advice.

32:24 Hector A. says:
What are the top characteristics of a real man??
32:55 Mike says:
I have been a nice guy for my entire life. Had two girlfriends in my past. They both used and abused me, financially and emotionally. How do I stop being a nice guy? I need to become a MAN who has respect, someone who does good to the world and at the same time, not being an asshole. I was raised by a single mom, and my dad never put attention into me. Out of a family of four boys, I was the youngest and my mom wanted a girl. So she treated me like a girl my entire youth. Now I am in my early 30′s and I realize that I need to become more alpha. Anyways, what actions do I need to take today?
