When you’re faced with a difficult situation, do you run from it or run towards it? This story is a great metaphor for how to behave when we’re faced with adversity.

Show Notes:

I’ve got a real treat for you today. I’m lifting the curtain on a conversation I had at my elite level mastermind with the legend, Rob Dyrdek.

In case you’ve forgotten who he is (because I know you’ve heard of him), he is the professional skater turned TV personality and mega-entrepreneur. You probably know of him from his TV shows Ridiculousness, Fantasy Factory, or Rob & Big. But most people don’t realize how wildly successful and brilliant an entrepreneur he is.

He was willing to come to our mastermind and bless us with his incredible knowledge, not only of his businesses, but how he leads such a life of balance. I’ve never seen any entrepreneur do it like this before.

 

Question Highlights:

-What are your core values?

-Where did your boundaries come from and how do you uphold them?

-Why was the book Start at the End so impactful, and what do you do as a result of what you learned from that book? 

-What did it take for you to learn to be a numbers person?

-What keeps you motivated to keep pushing?

-Do you have a meditative or spiritual practice?

-If you started over, what would be your next revenue stream?

-Can you break down your morning routine?

 

Guest Bio:

At 18 years old, he used his knowledge gained from the skateboard industry to create his first company.

The relentless pursuit of his childhood dreams made Rob Dyrdek a professional athlete at 16 years old and propelled him into the world of business before most people entered college. Surrounded by entrepreneurs in his youth, Dyrdek quickly learned the power of building brands. At 18 years old, he used that knowledge to create his first company.

This “outlier” experience helped him to develop and grow both his own brands and increase the value of his brand partners as he was quickly becoming an influential professional skateboarder. By leveraging his influence and designing new concepts and ideas, he helped turn a rising footwear and apparel brand into a $500 million international company. He used that same expertise to build skate brands later in his career launching the world's first true professional skateboarding league Street League Skateboarding and a first of its kind skateboarding channel, ETN.

That same approach to brand development led him to co-create and executive produce his first television show, Rob & Big on MTV. After the success of this first show, he created Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory showcasing his Do-Or-Dier® mentality towards entrepreneurship. Constantly evolving and taking calculated risks, Dyrdek beat world records with his physical feats while continuing his endeavors, launching several new brands while structuring multi-platform integrated partnerships.

Dyrdek continued in his television success with the launch of his new production company, Superjacket. In this new role, he created Ridiculousness, yet another big hit television show, followed by hits like Nickelodeon’s Mega Life & Crashletes and CMT’s The Dude Perfect Show.

Using this expertise gained developing the intersection between business and media, he went on to not only invest in new businesses, but also help successfully amplify their brand. With his extensive knowledge, experience and insight gained over two decades of building his own intellectual properties and working with top brands around the world, he started developing the groundwork for his full-service venture studio, Dyrdek Machine.

The Dyrdek Machine represents not only the financial investment of Rob Dyrdek, but also his passion for partnering with disruptive “Do-or-Dier®” entrepreneurs, guiding them to achieve sustainable success. Using his proven method for predictable success, Dyrdek works personally with his partners to help them realize their true passion and voice and turn it into a profitable, sustainable brand.

His unquenchable desire to live life to the fullest pushed him to develop a strategy for success in life, not unlike the formula he created for his venture studio. Following his life plan for happiness, balance and love while still achieving greatness in his career, Dyrdek now enjoys a fulfilling life with his family in Beverly Hills and continues to build his dream as he had not only envisioned, but designed it.

Show Notes:

Some of the questions I get the most center around how to handle business partnerships: Whether or not you should have a business partner, how to tell if someone is a good fit for your partnership, or what to do if you have a partnership that’s going downhill. To help answer some of those questions, I’ve brought on two powerhouse women, one being my wife Lori Harder, and the other is the remarkable Lindsey Schwartz.

 

These two women have recently collaborated on an upcoming event called Event Luv, a five day training program for holding profitable, successful events. Because I’ve been watching how this collaboration unfolded firsthand, and because I have been watching how well they work together, and some of the tough things they’ve had to do to make this successful, I decided to bring them on to ask them the tough questions around how to form a successful partnership. Listen up, get inspired, and get ready for several takeaways that are going to help you in your business.

 

Question Highlights:

 Is this a partnership or a collaboration?  Why are collaborations so valuable right now? What value do partners bring to the table? How do you have the money conversation? Have you had any moments where you’ve had to have tough conversations? Whose idea was Event Luv? What is the one thing you’re most excited to teach?

After seeing numerous women in her life stop short of pursuing their own entrepreneurial dreams because of fear and self-doubt, she saw the need for more honest conversations about the ups & downs of entrepreneurship in order to show women that they don’t have to have it all together to get started. From there, the Powerhouse Women community, annual event, and podcast were born, with the motto that we're not meant to do business (or life) alone! 

 

Lori Harder is a transformational speaker author, Forbes Top-18 Female-led Podcast host, Number 1 Best-selling author, and thought leader. She helps people lock in their transformations by teaching how to create lasting relationships that support their long-term goals.

 

As a successful entrepreneur running two seven-figure businesses, network marketing professional, Tedx Speaker, 10-time cover model, and three-time fitness world champion, she offers a carefully curated set of practical tools to promote sustainable health, spiritual well-being and emotional thriving.

He is the CEO of The Hollis Company, and husband to Rachel Hollis, the famous author of the books Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing. Before he joined Rachel in building The Hollis Company, he had an incredible career in publicity, talent management, marketing and brand management, mostly in the motion pictures industry for some of the biggest companies in the world.

 

Dave and Rachel have four kids, and yet they still find a way to run one of the largest self-development brands in the world. We’re going to do a deep dive into how they make that work, how they keep their relationship and being a great parent a priority, while having this explosive growth.

What is the key to being a really great partner to a very powerful woman? Are there times you ever feel like Rachel Hollis’ husband instead of the person you are yourself? What are some of the hacks and non-negotiables that you’ve installed to protect your role as lovers and parents first? What is it like being on the other side of one of the most recognizable self-help brands? What are the most common lies that hold us back?

Show Notes:

Is homeownership the right move? This can be a controversial topic, but so many people have questions about it, and more importantly, so many people get it wrong.

 

I’m going to address this financial urban legend that’s been fed to people who, while meaning well, didn’t know any better. So many of us just follow the advice that someone gives them without stopping to run the numbers on it. It was also probably given to you by people who aren’t exactly financially savvy. We’re going to go over when buying makes sense, when renting is a better idea, and the smartest home-buying strategy I know.

Every good reason to make good money is rooted in love. It really is the true motivating factor for 99% of us. Some people want to pay their parents back, or provide a better life for their family, or to make an impact on issues that matter to them.

 

We have way too many people saying “money is evil,” or “rich people are greedy,” while simultaneously wishing they could live a better life, shift a cause they care about, or make a bigger difference. This will only stop when we start to push the idea out there that every good reason to make good money is rooted in love.

Show Notes:

I’m sitting down with a friend of mine today named Michael Dash. He has an incredible story of addiction: addiction to drugs, alcohol, gambling, money, and practically every addiction you could possibly chase. But, he’s now turned it into an incredible story of contribution and leading a beautiful life.

 

We’re going to talk his rock bottom, then we’re going to talk about what saved him from it, and we’re going to dissect all the lessons from it that apply to your life as well. During all this, we tell his story of how he went from craving millions, being addicted to money, to then no longer wanting money at all, to now realizing it’s not good or bad, but a tool for him to get his message out there for those who need it.

 

Michael has built companies, sold companies, been-there-done-that as an entrepreneur and he has tons of advice to share. In fact, he’s put all of that into his new book, Chasing the High, for you to learn from.

 

Question Highlights:

 Can you tell us about your history with addiction?  Have you traded addictions for other, more productive addictions? Are we always trading addictions, or is it possible to be free of addiction? When did you sell your company? Tell us about your book, Chasing the High? What is money, anyway? How do I pursue this tool called money in a healthy way? Is there any fear in chasing it down again?

 

Guest Bio:

MICHAEL G. DASH is an entrepreneur, author, recovering addict, speaker, philanthropist, and thrill seeker. He founded the F.A.T.E. series (From Addict to Entrepreneur) published on Thrive Global & Medium, and rolled out a F.A.T.E. program to help entrepreneurs dealing with addiction, which he looks forward to growing. Information can be found at http://michaelgdash.com/fatemasterclass. He is the co-founder of imactivated.com, 

a social movement focused on inspiring a culture of positivity, authenticity, passion, empathy, and resilience. Michael is an avid volunteer, fundraiser, and mentor, and is dedicated to bringing positive change to leaders of all kinds. 

 

You can reach Michael via email at michael@michaelgdash.com regarding partnering or other opportunities or check out his site at michaelgdash.com.

 

Book Description 

To be on the frontline of entrepreneurship, you must be bold and take risks. But the need to achieve can be as addictive as drugs, with serious side effects. It can make you feel isolated, uncertain, and trapped on an emotional roller coaster ride full of euphoric highs and  devastating lows. But there’s a way to get back onto solid ground.

 

An accomplished entrepreneur and recovering gambling and drug addict, Michael Dash realized his gaming obsession and his drive to succeed were two sides of the same coin. He was always “chasing the high,” whether in the office, the casino or out being the life of the party. Through it all, he was able to devise strategies and routines that enabled him to refocus, reboot, and take control of his life. And his winning approach will help all leaders calm their inner chaos and find fulfillment, serenity, and purpose.

 

A different life is possible when you stop Chasing the High...and start living.

Show Notes:

In this episode, we’re going to do something different. We are going to be talking to entrepreneurs who are in the beginning and middle of their journey, not just people who are already walking success stories. To kick this off, I’ve selected three entrepreneurs that I absolutely love. I’ve known them for a while, I know their business intimately, and they are all very diverse entrepreneurs. 

 

We’re going to start with Jim Carter, an incredibly successful tech entrepreneur that’s been behind the scenes with some big sites and launches, but now he wants to be out in the spotlight helping others do that for themselves.

 

We’re also going to hear from Christina Lecuyer who was a professional golfer and now wants to coach other individuals on how to connect better as humans, which is what she was really doing on the golf course to begin with. She’s taking those skills from the golf course and helping to apply them to your life through coach, masterminds, and other modalities like that.

 

Finally, we’ll talk to an incredible artist, the founder of Wanderlust Skulls, Cassie Everson. She finds reclaimed steer and other skulls and turns them into some of the sexiest art on the planet. She’s one of those stories of starving artist turned successful, but she’s not fully there yet, she’s still in the middle.

 

Listen up, take notes, and let me know what you think of this episode. You are going to learn so much from these three.

 

Question Highlights:

 What was one of your biggest fears in starting your business?  What was the tipping point where you decided to jump into it? What was one of the moments that made you realize you could do this and it was worth it? What was one of your biggest wall-kicking moments? What made you join this mastermind? What happens when you don’t bottle up your knowledge? What is your long-term goal for your business? What is the best piece of advice you have for a starting entrepreneur?

By the end of this episode, it’s my goal for you to see, track and feel your level of success in a very different way. All of you are working way too hard to feel beaten up, giving way too much effort to not feel successful. So we’re going to turn that around.

Today I’m sitting down with my good friend Chris Pan. He’s the founder of MyIntent, the incredible bracelets that let you choose your word, one that means the most to you, and have it stamped right into them so you can be reminded of it all the time as you wear it.

 

Chris went from personally working with Mark Zuckerberg, teaching him Chinese at Facebook, to traveling the world everywhere and realizing he wanted to fulfill his passion through more spirit-seeking startups.

Can you tell the story of when MyIntent was born? What did this hole or gap feel like? When did you know that MyIntent would go from an activity to a company? Could you describe one of your big breaks for us? Talk to me about charging your true value? Why did you release the kit and what did it do for the company? What are you passionate about now that’s being supported by your success? What does it mean to you to provide great jobs for people? What role has generosity played with your success? What challenges do you face next? What advice do you have for the entrepreneur who thinks their product is too simple or has been done before?

The guidelines to follow when deciding when to give a refund Being extremely customer-service ordinary Being obligated to stand behind your return policy Having a clearly-defined refund policy Needing unbreakable boundaries Enforcing with consistency

 

Resources:

Nordstrom Customer Service Free training videos: fortheloveofmoney.com/free Money Principles

 

Show Notes:

Today, I’m weighing in on the age-old question of “Should you give a refund?” This is obviously aimed at the entrepreneurs, or anyone that provides a product or service. This episode is going to be the end-all, be-all decision-making guideline so you don’t have to panic over making the call.

 

The reason most people struggle with this is because it deals with so many triggers: self-worth, money mindset, boundaries, reputation, and many more. You immediately default to all of the negative thoughts and then you end up making decisions from a place of panic, and that never leads to good decisions.

 

I want to share our personal set of guidelines when it comes to whether or not to give a refund. This will free you up so much!

Show Notes:

I first saw Jon Jacques performing magic at a mastermind while teaching self-development and business strategies. He leverages social media to tell captivating stories and to raise awareness for important issues, as well as to train people in areas of self-development and entrepreneurship, using magic to keep your attention and as a metaphor for the lessons he teaches.

 

He is also an expert in creating virality. Everyone is trying to get their content to go viral, except almost none of us are able to do it. He has helped to create viral videos in the hundreds of millions of views, and he even uses his own skill-sets to grow his Facebook page from zero to almost a million followers in just 10 months.

 

It’s not just his magic tricks that get him the growth: Content is 30% of the equation, and the other 70% are strategies around distribution and other hacks that he will teach right here in this episode.

 

Question Highlights:

 How did you go from performing magic to using it to leverage self help and business mentoring?  How do we get more eyes on our content? What are some of the strategies we can use to get it distributed in a big way? What is the best way to approach content partnerships? How can I create content for people who are not yet following me? What are you doing with this knowledge now for customers? What was it like to having a business fail? What would you have done differently? How did you pull yourself back out of it? How did giving provide you with your breakthrough?

 

Guest Bio:

Jon Jacques is a philanthropist, entrepreneur, professional magician, and influencer who has been featured by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, TechCrunch, Buzzfeed, and Mashable. 

 

His journey in entrepreneurship began at the young age of 10, when he was able to turn his passion for performing magic into a successful entertainment business. By 12 years old, he was executing over 250 worldwide performances per year for crowds of up to 8,000 people. Throughout his performance career, Jon leveraged his gifts not only to entertain, but also to inspire action. He's helped raise over $500,000 for numerous charities including Relay For Life, We Are The Children, and The Junior Women's Club.

 

Upon graduating from Babson College (Ranked #1 for Entrepreneurship), Jon moved out to San Francisco to help scale a video advertising startup from zero to $20 million dollars per year in revenue. He's the man behind some of the most viral video campaigns in history for Turkish Airlines, Disney, Verizon, Anheuser-Busch, and more.

 

After honing his advertising and social media skills, Jacques decided to quit his job to create viral videos of his own - his content has inspired over 100 million people and earned him a tremendous following. He recently launched ViralSecrets.com to help business owners go viral and scale their brands on social media. Through his courses and speaking engagements, he's helped thousands of entrepreneurs predictably drive millions of views and followers online. When not building on his mission, Jon enjoys working out, scuba diving, snowboarding, and wakeboarding.

Show Notes:

Today I’m honored to sit down with decorated U.S. Army Ranger, Mikhail Venikov. Mikhail is such an inspiring human, and he’s creating an incredible impact everyday in his life and nonprofit, Ranger Road. He is leading by example in the way that I, and so many others, want to show up in the world. This episode is full of the inspiration you need to change or do anything you have ever wanted. Be ready for emotion-fueled stories about the impact that his nonprofit has been able to create, and ways that you can help the movement.

 

Question Highlights:

 

What is the best lesson you’ve learned as a Ranger? When did Ranger Road start, and how does it gain funding? What role has generosity played in your success?

 

How can we help your message?

 

Guest Bio:

Former 2d Ranger Battalion veteran Mikhail Venikov continues to live a life devoted to the principles of the Ranger Creed following his passion in mixed martial arts and establishing Ranger Road, an active duty and transition not for profit designed to bringing veterans and civilians together through extraordinary sports adventure experiences to assist in the transition process to civilian life.

 

A native of Kazakhstan, Venikov's service in the 75th Ranger Regiment was defined by stellar accomplishment rooted in small unit leadership that included three combat tours. He was named Honor Graduate and Sgt Maj. Robert Spencer Enlisted Leadership Award recipient of his U.S. Army Ranger School class. In 2006, Mikhail and his partner Sgt. 1st Class John Sheaffer won the prestigious and physically demanding Army Best Ranger Competition.

 

After completing his Army enlistment, Venikov graduated from the Sacramento Sheriff's Academy and was hired by the San Mateo Police Department where he eventually joined the city's SWAT team. After joining the SWAT team, a chance engagement with MMA legend Urijah Faber led to Venikov's dedication to become a professional MMA fighter with Team Alpha Male.

 

The popularity of MMA within the military community provided Venikov a platform to launch Ranger Road. Since its inception Ranger Road has provided opportunities for active duty and veterans to participate in a variety of high adrenaline activities such as skydiving, wakeboarding, and MMA training. The events are provided at low and no cost.

 

"We believe that the brotherhood and camaraderie found in the military is unparalleled in the civilian world," Venikov said. "We've learned that being amongst our brothers and sisters is better than any therapy and brings out the best in us and everything we do. We are here to lead the way."

 

Venikov is actively pursuing a partnership with the United States Special Operations Command Care Coalition. The Care Coalition serves special operations forces wounded, ill, or injured service members and their families by, through, and with government and non-government organizations such as Ranger Road. Venikov is excited for the opportunity to continue to serve the special operations community.

 

"We are all stronger together," Venikov said.

Today I’m weighing in my two cents on the topic of easy money and big money, and the idea that the easy money will often cost you the big money.

I get that sometimes saying yes is the common sense thing to do, especially if you need the money.

Show Notes

We are all spending quite a bit of time on social media, talking to people and connecting with people outside of our own circles. Because of this, it’s important to know just how to properly reach out and network on social media. This is a great business move to do! Thanks to social media, we can connect with people that we may have never had the opportunity to meet in person. The unfortunate thing is that most people have no idea how to reach out and network, so today I’m sharing my two cents on just how to go about it.

Show Notes

Joining me on today’s show is Paige Filliater! As a business and life strategist, Paige uses energy work to remove the root reasons businesses aren’t working and coming in with high-level scaling and growth strategies. I am so excited because Paige is also a human potential expert. She uses human design as a means for how we can run our businesses, and how we work and communicate best. Paige has an incredible story of breaking free from her past money mindset, shifting her subconscious stories, and how she’s helping others do the same. This episode is a good one filled with breakthroughs!

 

Question Highlights:

What is human design? What do people need to know about it? Why is it that we can feel not very connected to our design? How do you tie the knot between two opposing views of energy and religion? What is the Play Method? Why is changing the money conversation so important to you?

 

Paige Filliater was born and raised in Marion, Ohio. Both of her parents were factory workers and as a family, they went to church on a regular basis until she was 6-years-old. Although she grew up on the other side of the tracks, she credits her parents for being loving and instilling curiosity as major parts of her future success. During her childhood, her family was involved at the Historical Palace Theater in town and participated in a show every summer since she was 8-years-old.

Paige attended Marion Harding High School (Ohio) and graduated in 2006. She attended Columbus State Community College and later Marion Tech, each for less than a semester, before dropping out of both.

 

In 2014, Page created Graceful Hustle, a community of entrepreneurial women. As safe space for women looking for genuine connections, Graceful Hustle offers With weekly threads, monthly training, bi-weekly phone calls, and bi-weekly book club masterminds.

 

Paige started the quarterly subscription Spellbox Subscription Box Service that contains deliveries of crystals and tarot cards to sustain positive vibrations. In addition, Paige's husband runs a local juice bar in their town. Her husband previously worked at a steel plant for eight years and would have never predicted owning such an enterprise.

A central part of Paige's philosophy is the Golden Rule and believes that how you treat others is a reflection of how you treat yourself; we are not separate.

 

Paige founded Paigecakes in 2013, a social media management service for businesses. After a year, Paige expanded her company to be a creative and digital marketing agency that helps businesses for everything ranging from paid traffic funnels to strategic social media targeting. Paige began to narrowly focus the company more in 2015 to specialize in increasing revenue for online businesses. Currently as a business and life strategist, Paige uses energy work to remove the root reasons businesses aren’t working and coming in with high-level scaling and growth strategies.

Through her strategy and online marketing, Paige's business alone made six figures in six months and $380,000 in two years while helping her clients generate revenue in the multi-million dollar range. With her primary goal being sales and POI, Paige's method of successful outcomes for her clients all comes down to low lead costs and high opt in conversion rates.

Carly Stein, founder and CEO of Beekeeper's Naturals, is a savvy and inspiring entrepreneur. She is a beekeeper herself who developed an innovative bee-made nutraceutical product line that provides effective, natural solutions to everyday modern health issues. Her passion for the power of the bees originated from a personal medical issue she faced while traveling in Italy. After discovering the incredible healing properties of bee propolis while abroad, she set out on a mission to share the wonders from the hive and educate people on the integral role the bees play in our ecosystem. It wasn't long until she swapped her 16 hour days on the trading floor to head up Beekeeper's Naturals full time.

Carly is dedicated to using her company as a platform to raise awareness and funding for the bee cause through partnerships with cutting edge institutions and non-profits, while also promoting sustainable practices and pesticide-free beekeeping.

In case you didn’t know, or someone hasn’t told you recently: You were put here to be noticed. You were put here with a purpose. Our families, friends, and teachers meant well, but they have us all programed to be afraid of standing out, which makes you miss out on sharing YOUR gifts with the world. Are you trying to pursue your calling, but aren’t gaining the traction you see everyone else getting? In many cases, this is because you’re saying one thing, yet doing another. You want to help people? Do you want your service to be noticed? Then you need to get over your fear of standing out. Stop whispering, start shouting.

I am so excited for today’s episode because I am sitting down with Travis “TJ” Jones, the founder of RBT Gyms, founder of Think Tank, and co creator of Small Business Performance Coach. Travis is literally an epic entrepreneur and philanthropist, and he absolutely stands for everything that this show is about. I can’t wait for you to learn from him, be inspired by him, and to hear some of his incredible stories. This episode is for sure going to rock your world.

 

Question Highlights:

What was it like living in your gym? How has living risky helped you in business? How did you find the courage to keep going through all the no’s? What makes your coaching business different from all the rest? Could you tell me about your foundation? Where did your drive come from? How do you do it all as a parent?

 

They say true success is born. Vibrant, energetic and infectious as a youngster Travis Jones,  or “TJ” as his friends call him, was inevitably going to achieve big things. After starting out in the  health and fitness industry, and a stint in Canada where he trained with elite coaches, Travis returned to Australia in 2011, and launch his own specialist body transformation gym,  Result Based Training, utilising every aspect of the experience he gained from working tirelessly nationwide wide and overseas.

Known for being the man who has never written a business plan, Travis began his entrepreneurial journey like many entrepreneurs –essentially  broke and living out of the space that his business occupied. In this case, it was Result Based Training’s first location in South Melbourne. Jones’‘do what it takes’ mantra and work ethic helped grow Result Based Training into an internationally recognised gym, launching six gyms across three states within the first 24 months.

The last five years has seen the growth of Result Based Training from one gym in 2013 to 21 by February, 2018. Together with wife, Liv Jones, the couple went on to establish their cutting-edge coaching business, Think Tank, which was created to help guide and coach SME’s on how to grow their businesses into successful brands. Jones’  business smarts have seen him have a history of building businesses rapidly, with Think Tank growing from $0 to having a $1.5million turnover within its first year.

If that wasn’t  enough, in 2017,  the couple founded Attain Digital –a  digital marketing agency that began producing over $500,000 of sales before they even launched their company website and manages over $1.5 million worth of client marketing campaigns in the first year and growing rapidly.Apart from their corporate ventures, Travis and Liv have also gone onto create their passion project, If Not Now Then When, a foundation established to change the lives of children all over the world.

Show Notes

 

Today I’m sitting down with Charlie “The Rocket” Jabaley, and you guys, this may be one of the most inspiring episodes I have had this far. Charlie Jabaley was once a highly successful music manager for celebrity recording artists, but decided to walk away from it all when he realized it was leading to an unhealthy future. Since then, Charlie has biked across the United States, lost 130 pounds, and lives a more full and healthy life all around.

We go deep into why Charlie left his business to pursuit better health, and the different ways he went about creating goals, training for an IronMan, and biking across the country. Charlie also talks about creating the vision of Charlie Rocket, how he manifests change, and why it’s so important to give back.

This episode is so incredible, and serves as a great reminder that we can strive for wealth in all aspects, not just monetary.

 

Question Highlights:

What career background did you come from before your transformation? How were you so successful in some aspects, but so lost in others? What did you have to leave behind in order to begin this new life? What sparked biking across America? What was that like? Where did this drive for generosity come from? What did money mean to you before this journey, and what does it mean to you now? What has made you choose to be so transparent?

 

Quotes

"Boil pots of water, not lakes.”

“I just want to live a great story.”

“Too many people in this world are “you should” people, they get up on stages or they get on Youtube or Instagram and they say, “You should do this, you should do that,” and I never say those words, you should.”

“See, money is going to magnify who we are.”

“Nobody is going to believe in you until you get down the road, so you’ve gotta have this delusional optimistic mindset.”

 

Charlie Jabaley wasn't your typical kid from Georgia (United States). Sometimes labelled, "the chubby kid", Charlie was a dreamer. Knowing that he needed to use his imagination as a weapon to survive the playground, Charlie created his first persona, CEO Charlie. He had other ideas. Like pursuing the life of an athlete. But, that had to wait.

As a young CEO millionaire of Atlanta Hip-hop management company, Street Execs, he sold millions of records, changed the trajectory of how to market to millennials, and guided the careers of influential artists like Grammy award winning 2Chainz. However, while all the success was pouring in, he battled depression, binge eating, crippling insecurities and a brain tumor. To everyone on the outside, CEO Charlie was crushing it. On the inside, he was dying. Unhealthy, unhappy and unfilled, Charlie retired in 2017 at the age of 29 from both the music industry and the name “CEO Charlie”. He made the decision to reinvent his life in pursuit of his childhood dream to become an athlete.

Charlie Rocket inspires those around him. He’s lost 135 pounds. Became vegan. Ran 3 marathons. Reversed the growth of his brain tumor. Became an Ironman. Just finished his nationally known Dream Machine bike tour across America. Is currently on the cover of Runner’s World Magazine and secured partnership with Nike. Charlie has rerouted his ambition of making millions of dollars into his current mission to TRANSFORM 1 MILLION PEOPLE’S LIVES.

His name is Charlie Jabaley. His story isn’t over yet.

I want you to think about the last 5 conversations you’ve had. Who have them with? What did you talk about? Have they been solutions based, or were they wildfire conversations? What is the difference between a solutions based conversation and a wildfire conversation? Which conversations do we tend to have more of? Why do I think this topic is so important to share with you all? Once I realized the types of conversations I was having, and decided to shift them to being solutions based instead, everything changed. Why do we default to wildfire talking rather that rise to a solutions based conversation? Simple, it’s easier to jump on the bandwagon.

 

So, what can we do?

Be hyper aware of what conversations you are participating in. Try to turn the conversation around. Adopt a zero tolerance policy for wildfire conversations.

 

Quotes

"There’s very few things you can talk about in life where you cannot offer somebody some great advice and make it a solutions based conversation."

“It’s easier to just join on the bandwagon, join in on the gossip, join in on the complaining.”

“We train people how to treat us, we train people what conversations we are willing to have, not by what we say, but by what we do.”

177: Four Reasons You're Not Yet Rich . . .

Nov 15, 2018 16:05

Description:

Time for a little wake-up call, friends!  There can be many reasons why you’re not yet where you want to be, but today I am going to go over four of them.

 

When Lori and I were doing only around 250K a year we got sick and tired and decided to just “GO FOR IT”…and went from 250,000 to over 1 million in one year.

Your Goals Are WEAK. You’re shooting too low…thinking that you’ll just take slow, incremental steps to wealth instead of really exploding!  Why not think bigger and set bigger goals? You’re not setting the bar high enough. And then when you do, just work backwards, and think out of the box.  So what kind of crazy, amazing goal are you going to set this year? Your Tribe ISN’T Helping You. While your tribe might be amazing, great people, but if they haven’t been to where YOU’RE SHOOTING FOR, then they have nothing to teach you.  It’s time to find a new tribe of people who you surround yourself with. You don’t have to tell your current one to “peace out” but you need to reach out to additional, different people who will up-level your tribe. You’re Too Damn Conservative. You’re probably placing too much value on your current “stability” and if you place too much focus on that, you will not be able to take the proper “risks” that you need to take in order to go to the next level. Make a radical change to get a radical new outcome! Take some risks when it’s smart. You’re Mentally Weak. I say this with the most love possible, honestly. You’re scared and afraid of what people might say if you fail or make changes. You’re afraid you might look silly. You’re not willing to push through the uncomfortable part and endure a short-term struggle in order to reach that long-term success! You’re not willing to turn off the tv and pick up a book to learn what you need to learn. Your mental discipline needs a good workout!

 

“These four reasons are why you DESIRE to lead a better life, but you are not yet leading an EXTRAORDINARY life.”

 

You see, these four reasons have been holding you back. And again, I say talk about these with some serious love for you. They’re the reasons that you DESIRE to lead a better life but you’re not yet living an EXTRAORDINARY life. If you can get these four areas cleaned up and corrected, just imagine what your life could look like in a matter of months!



In This Episode We Talk about:

Why your tribe could be holding you back Four reasons you’re not yet rich and how to make some changes in order to fix them How you’re probably setting crappy goals and don’t even know it

175: How to Set Wealthy Boundaries

In This Episode We Talk about:

Setting boundaries Upholding boundaries Seven wealthy boundaries to help ensure strong finances

Show Notes

Today’s episode is all about setting boundaries – more importantly wealthy boundaries. First of all, setting boundaries in all areas of your is a very valuable thing, because when you set these strong, non-negotiable boundaries it naturally helps you achieve a stronger financial situation.

So how and where do you set these boundaries? First and foremost, you must remember that:

“Boundaries are set and kept, not by what you say, but by what you do.”

You can’t expect people to respect your boundaries if you don’t respect them yourself. 

“It’s only a boundary if you reinforce it.”

When you’re able to follow through and actually uphold your boundaries, others respect it as well. When you only talk about it without following through, it’s just a wish, am I right?

 

The following are a few “Wealthy Boundaries” that are a good starting point:

    Paying yourself first. Make a commitment to put away a certain amount of money weekly or monthly to build up your savings. My tip? Set up an auto deposit so it’s done without you having to even think about it.     Spending habits. What are you splurging on? How often? For me, I love watches and if I wanted to I could buy one whenever I wanted, but I’ve set this boundary. “I can never buy a watch unless it has a great story or accomplishment attached to it.”     Who you take advice or coaching from. You wouldn’t take financial advice from a broke financial advisor, would you? No. Make sure the person who’s doling out the advice is a proven expert and can actually help you.     Lending money to friends and family. This is so important, especially as you continue to create more and more wealth. It’s not saying you can’t loan money to friends and family, but be sure to create clearly defined boundaries.     Business budgets. These boundaries are often forgotten, but so important. Set budgets and stick to them, regardless if they’re monthly, quarterly, annually or by percentage.     Start and end of the work day. Make sure your start and end of your work day works for you and keeps you operating from a full cup. My day doesn’t officially start until 11 a.m., and while I have no “end” time, my day always ends with a non-negotiable family walk.     Giving. It is so important to give, but make sure you’re not giving too much or too little. It’s better to continuously give 10% of $100,000 than it is to give everything that’s left over. Remember, being left with nothing promotes scarcity, which only pushes abundance away from you.

 

I hope these wealthy boundaries have helped give you an idea of where you’d like more boundaries in your life! Regardless if you use the above or create new ones for yourself, always remember that boundaries only work when practiced and reinforced regularly. Good luck!

If today’s guest’s voice or picture looks familiar to you, it’s likely because you’ve seen James Swanwick at some point on ESPN. While that’s where he found early success, since that time this Australian-American has become an incredibly successful entrepreneur, speaker, health coach and podcast host.

While I only did it for 30 days, James has been faithfully reading a book a day for years. James and I dig deep into his generosity practice and why he feels it’s the only way to lead in order to form true and authentic relationships, why he gave up alcohol and now helps others do the same with his 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge. Genuinely wanting to help others, he also founded Swanwick Sleep that focuses on better sleep in a blue-light filled world.

Can you give us a high-level overview of your upbringing and how you got to where you are today? What are your practices to reading a book a day? Who’s the most fascinating entrepreneur you’ve ever interviewed? Why did you quit drinking? What is your 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge? Can you tell me about a transformation that really stuck out to you? How does someone join your challenge? How are you able to connect people so well? What has being involved with charities done for you and which charities mean the most to you these days? What was the best lesson you took away from working with 11 charities in 11 weeks? What is the rage behind blue light-blocking glasses?

 

Quotes

"Just do it and do it now.”

“Your network impacts your net worth.” 

“You have to lead with generosity with people in order to earn an authentic relationship with them.”

“There is no good, there is no bad – there’s just happenings. Our perception makes it good or bad.”

He is the creator of blue-light blocking glasses Swannies from Swanwick Sleep, which helps people sleep better; and the 30 Day No Alcohol Challenge, which helps people reduce or quit alcohol. Forbes magazine voted him one of the Top 25 Networking Experts. Swanwick has interviewed celebrities including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kobe Bryant, David Beckham and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

173: Why We Must Do Better

Show Notes

Today I’m calling us all out – myself included. It’s time for us all to do better. In an effort to explain why I’m making such a profound statement, I’m going to tell you about a conversation I overheard the other day on a walk.

There was a woman talking on her phone and I heard her tell the other person, “I can only afford to give you $20…I know it’s not enough, but I hope it at least helps a little.” First off, I want to commend two people for doing the right thing. One person is asking for help and another is offering help. But here’s the thing, it’s not good enough. How sad is it that one person only has an extra $20 to give a friend in need when she could be making more money.

“We simply have to do better.”

Now believe me, I’m not judging either one of these people because I’ve been the asker and the giver. We’ve all fallen on hard times. Of course, we can chalk it up to “life happened to me” when something goes awry, but I can honestly say in my moments, “I happened to me.” Do I believe bad things should happen to people – definitely not, but if this message stirs up something inside you, please hear it has a wake-up call. We have to do better.

The woman I overheard is a good person but she wasn’t making good money. She was missing the tool of money, and while it may seem like a no-brainer, we need more money to help more people. How amazing would it have been if she could have given her friend $2,000 without batting an eye? Amazing, right? What if we ALL could do that?

Personally, I know I can do better too. I would love to give away millions and millions of dollars like some of my friends currently do but I’m not there yet. But just imagine it, if we all made enough money to solve every problem out there what this world would be.

I hope this episode inspires you do keep striving to make a different and do better.

172: Success Against All Odds with Nick Santonastasso

Description:

In This Episode We Talk about:

What Hanhart Syndrome is and how it’s impacted Nick’s life Why energy is contagious Why Nick made the decision to amputate his right arm Turning outside noise into fuel Why Nick’s parents are his heroes Why everything is a muscle Why Nick doesn’t feel like he’s doing “enough” sometimes Why Nick wants to give people experiences and take care of people when they need help Nick’s new book, Victim to Victor The importance of storytelling in learning

 

Resources:

IG: @nicksantonastasso BookNickSanto.com Victim to Victor by Nick Santonastasso http://a.co/d/iDiPDRz Chris will send a copy of Victim to Victor to the first 20 people who DM him @chriswharder on IG requesting the book.

 

Show Notes

I first heard today’s guest, Nick Santonastasso, speak at the recent THRIVE event I attended and I am so grateful I did. Not only is his story remarkable, but just the way he delivered his inspirational message on stage sent goosebumps straight up my arms.

Born with Hanhart Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that left him without legs, an underdeveloped right arm and a left arm with only one finger, Nick’s parents were told early on all the things he would likely never be able to do. His parents threw that list away and Nick has been shattering those glass ceilings ever since. As a fitness model, inspirational speaker and now author of the book, Victim to Victor, Nick is instilling his can-do-anything attitude and energy with the world.

This was such an awesome conversation and I can’t wait for you to hear the wisdom that comes out of this 22-year-old’s mouth. Check out how you can get a free copy of Nick’s book in Resources!

 

Question Highlights:

What is one of your superpowers? What is one of your favorite books? What is one thing you’re challenged by right now? Who is someone who’s changed your life? What can you tell us about Hanhart Syndrome? Do you remember the age you realized that you were born differently? What was it like growing up “different?” When was the first time that you shifted from having down-and-out feelings to being the inspiration you are today? What role did your parents play in who you are today? What is your one biggest piece of advice for parents today? What would “doing enough” look like? What do you believe the purpose of earning a significant amount of money and being successful is? What is the message of your book, Victim to Victor, and what makes it so special?

 

Quotes

"What are you willing to do to pivot?”

“You need to focus 110% effort on whatever you’re doing or you’re going to sell yourself short.”

“If you believe in yourself to do great things, why would you sell yourself short?”

“It’s not selfish to level up.”

 

Nick Santonastasso is a medical miracle. Not only is he one of four people alive with the rare genetic condition, Hanhart Syndrome, the inspirational keynote speaker is an internationally known bodybuilder and fitness model – despite missing both his legs and one arm since birth. The high-energy youth shares his amazing story, showing people that anyone can thrive if they have the determination and willpower to go after what they want. When Nick was born, the doctors handed his parents a long list of things that he would never be able to do. Nick’s parents politely thanked them and threw the list out. They raised Nick the same way they had raised his three able-bodied older siblings and instilled in him never to let the world tell him what he could or couldn’t do.

Seeking the good in everything Tips to help you change your perspective from negative to positive Retraining your brain

Show Notes

Today I’m going to let you in on a secret hack that I believe accounts for all facets of my success – in all areas of my life.

“Seek the good in everything.”

OK, I get it. This sounds really basic and is not a unique concept, but it’s a game-changer. Here’s a short story. A friend recently shared an article about a person who has given $10,000 to different people a handful of times. This particular instance showcased a waitress being left a $10,000 tip. Later the video they captured of the act was shared on YouTube to promote their brand. My friend told me, “what a shame that they’re using this for self-promotion.” Now, if you’ve followed me for a while, you know that I likely wouldn’t call this part out about the situation. What I would call out is the fact that these people gave someone who likely needed it, $10,000 because I tend to see the positive of the situation.

My friend and I went back and forth on this, but what’s your take on it? Do you see the good in the situation or are you quick to find the potential negative? 

“You have to intentionally seek the good in every situation in order to get good results.” 

When something bad happens to you, do you go into victim mode (“Poor me, why does this always happen to me?”) or do you find the growth and education that can come from such moments? Now, everyone is free to think whatever thoughts they want, but I can tell you from personal experience that seeking the good will net more success in your life. 

So let’s say you’re the person who does tend to see the more negative side of things. I challenge you, for 30 days, to try looking for the good. It is possible to re-train your brain to think positively. Here are a few tips to help:

Decide you’re willing to try this concept to start seeing the positive. Come up with a mantra. Something along the lines of, “I seek the good in everything I come across.” Catch yourself when you gravitate toward a negative though and quickly reframe it! This is crucial in training your brain to see the positive.

 

I think you’ll find that once you’re able to see more of the positive, more success and opportunities in all areas of your life will follow. 

“People want to lock arms with people who see the possibilities of the world – not the hurdles.” 

If you accept the challenge, please be sure to let me know over on Instagram! I can’t wait to be blown away with all the positivity!

Description:

 

I’m so excited to have my friend and fellow masterminder, Jeff Ragan, on the show today. As the founder of KiZE Concepts, his story really showcases what it truly means to be generous. Seeing food as something that links us all together, he took a risk with his peanut butter “fudge-like” bar and founded KiZE Concepts in an effort to change lives through food, service and charity.

Jeff admits that the process has always had its challenges – especially since he knew nothing about running a business – but it’s been an enjoyable fight nonetheless because he knows he’s helping others (KiZE helps feed 1,000 kids a day in Haiti) and inspiring others to do the same.

Get ready for a knowledge- and inspiration-packed episode that will have you motivated to give more in all areas of life. Jeff’s energy is contagious and I can’t wait to hear what kind of an impact our conversation has on you!

 

In This Episode We Talk About:

Where the idea of KiZE originated Jeff’s 3E Principle (Easy, Enjoyable and Energizing) What gives Jeff energy The many KiZE packaging struggles and iterations Why Jeff doesn’t want people to think his company’s generosity is for marketing Being unified by food KiZE’s love-based business model Generosity and giving Being authentic and realizing it’s not about you KiZE’s mission work in Haiti

Were you a budding entrepreneur your entire life or did it begin in college? Where did your generous and loving heart come from? When did you decide to put your “fudge” into a wrapper to sell to people? What was the toughest thing you had to overcome with your business? Can you apply the 3E Principle to business? Where did you get the skill set to build your company? When did feeding 1,000 kids a day become a part of the KiZE mission? Is it better to give out loud or give in the dark? What’s next for KiZE?

“Be great, love people and spread joy.”

“The only risk for me was not taking one.”

Show Notes

Today I’m speaking on a topic that is all too familiar to me and that is perfectionism. I’ve had so many missed experiences because I was so worried about what people thought and what I really should have been worrying about is getting results. I can’t even imagine how many opportunities I’ve missed out on just because it wasn’t “perfect” in my eyes.

While I still experience small instances that pop up on occasion, know that everything I share with you is from my own personal experiences and will help you eliminate some, if not all, your perfectionism tendencies as well. I know it may seem difficult now, but I assure you that it’s not as bad as you think. Just take it one step at a time.

“Your dreams are counting on you to get over your perfection and start taking action.”

 

Face and acknowledge your perfection. It’s necessary for you to feel the pain so you are spurred to take action. Declare it to the world – especially to those people who you’re afraid to tell. Declare that you’re going to change your habits. Heck, tag me @chriswharder so I can cheer you on! Start talking more out loud about your fears and mistakes. You’ll be surprised at the response of those who want to support you and also hear how you overcame any mistakes or learned from them. Choose to become more committed to action over perfection. And make sure to reward yourself – in a big or small way – for taking that action. Chart your actions even if they’re imperfect (that’s the idea). Make it your new, imperfect normal. Make a list of why you are epic just the way you are. Think of it as another form of gratitude practice. Do it daily, weekly etc. – but make it a regular practice so it gets locked in. Take it a step further by making a list of 20 people who you love or look up to in your life and next to their name, write a mistake they’ve made. Review and notice that you still love them despite their flaws. Read more biographies of big names who you look up to and you’ll realize that all of them have made a disastrous mistake one time or another and they still were successful. Give yourself hard deadlines. Get comfortable with releasing something – whatever it is – even if it’s not perfect. You can always tweak or make changes later.

 

“Stop getting ready to get ready.”

 

If you practice even a couple of the above habits consistently, I know you’ll be able to smash through the confines of perfection not only in business but in ALL areas of your life. Now, go take action!

Show Notes

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I had one of my favorite human beings, Bedros Keuilian, on the show, but I’m sure glad he’s here today to talk about his new book, Man Up. As the founder of Fit Body Boot Camp, he has overcome so much to get where he is today (check out his incredible story in his first FTLOM episode in Resources).

Today, we’re talking about one of Bedros’ lower points in life when he was experiencing panic attacks as the result of a failing business. He talks about how he navigated through that process bit by bit and discovered a strategy and mindset that kicked himself into gear – he made the choice to Man Up! Bedros committed to go all in – in all areas of life – in order to fulfill his purpose.

Tune in to hear about some of the steps he took that led him to this discovery, or better yet, grab his book and read about them all!

 

Question Highlights:

What is your favorite quote? What is one of your superpowers? What is one thing you’re challenged by? What is one of your favorite accomplishments? Who is one person who’s changed your life? Can you tell us about your panic attack at age 38? How did you turn your lowest of lows around? What moves are you going to make to reach your goal of 34 franchises a month? What has changed since your panic attack? Are you getting any backlash around your book title and what do you say to those people who say this title isn’t for them? What is your secondary and equally important message in your book that you’re treat to get across? Why are you not afraid to be unapologetic about who you are and what your message is? What is the one generous thing coming up yet this year that you’re excited about?

167: Building A Great Business is an Act of Love

Oct 11, 2018 10:19

Description:

I’ll be honest with you, some nights it would be easier to shut down at 5, crack open a beer and Netflix and chill with Lori – and put my worries away until the next day. But deep down I know that I won’t be satisfied with that when I know I’ve got big things to do and lives to change. Building a great business is truly an act of love.

 

We don’t want to waste the gifts we’ve been given. This doesn’t mean that everyone should be an entrepreneur – trust me when I say that we need people with other gifts that usually support people like me. But being an entrepreneur takes sacrifice, and here’s four reasons why it’s also an act of love.

 

You’re building solutions people need. You’re improving peoples’ lives with your solutions. If you don’t provide these solutions that people need to protect your ego, time and energy, it’s actually an act of selfishness.

 

You’re creating jobs. All the supporters of your business? You’re creating jobs for them, showcasing their talents and giving other gifts along the way.

 

You’re creating wealth the world needs. You’re not just creating wealth for yourself, you’re creating wealth for others. Think of the trickle effect it has when you buy a house. Banks, title companies, builders, insurance etc. – the list goes on and on.

 

You’re inspiring others to do the same. When you build your business and share in your area of expertise, you’re showing others the way by example.

 

“You create an entrepreneur by being an entrepreneur.”

 

So you see, building a great business is an act of love – for yourself and others. Doing anything less with the gifts that you were given is actually an act of selfishness. Not sure about you, but I’ll choose love and inspiration over selfishness any day.

Why building a great business is an act of love Four ways that prove building a business is an act of love Why building a business inspires and creates wealth for others

166: The Courage to be REAL and AUTHENTIC with Steve Weatherford

Oct 8, 2018 01:02:15

Description:

Today’s guest and former NFL star, Steve Weatherford, and I have been trying to connect and get him on the show for a year now. But we both came to the same consensus that this specific timing was meant to be. With so many revelations happening recently for this former American football player, Steve feels called now more than ever to uncover all of them and share them with others in podcasts like this (and on his own new podcast show – link in Resources).

 

Today, Steve and I do a deep-dive into all aspects of his life, past and present, focusing not just on what he’s done or doing now, but most importantly about what he’s passionate about and what lights him up. Steve gives permission to all men out there who feel they need to portray an “alpha” man to share their vulnerability instead. We don’t have to focus on our inadequacies – we get to focus on the wins, too.

 

This is such a life-changing (possibly life-saving for some) episode for so many reasons and I’m so excited for you all to listen in. Be sure to let both Steve and I know what your takeaways are!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

What do you really want to be known for? Do you feel like there’s a value in sharing your journey as you’re becoming this entrepreneur and kind of leaving it the past you’re know for behind? Why now? What made you go down the toughest path I’m guessing you’ve gone down yet? How did you make the shift? Can you participate in philanthropy now from a place of the right intention – and for you? Is it better to give in the dark, give out loud or something in between?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

Being authentic Where Steve’s at in the middle of his transcending journey The importance of sharing vulnerability Performance anxiety in the NFL Why men don’t have to suffer alone Why you don’t have to cover up anxiety or pain achievements Why the “doing” isn’t enough The two different ways to take action Why Steve wants to inspire people Steve’s new podcast, The Steve Weatherford Show Celebrating the moments when you show up as yourself The power of imperfection What Steve did to capture his father’s attention Why Steve doesn’t look for praise anymore Steve’s take on giving And so much more…

--

 



Steve’s Thoughts…

 

“I don’t want my life to be about things that I’ve done, I want it to be about the things that I am.”

 

“I am more than what I do.”

 

“If how you feel about you is predicated of others’ opinions of you, you’re not powerful – you’re powerless.”

 

“I’m leading a crusade for alpha men to show vulnerability in order to gain strength and mastery of themselves.”

 

“My greatest achievement is being myself.”

 

“If I serve people, I need to know what the pulse of my community is.”

 

“You can never fail at being yourself.”

165: How Do Couples Make Financial Decisions Together

Oct 4, 2018 15:49

Description:

One of the most popular questions I get is how Lori and I as a couple make financial decisions. It’s not surprising when you see everywhere just how stressful finances can be. So today, I’m sharing a few game-changing ground rules that will help you feel better about your and your partner’s relationship with money.

 

Set your ego aside. Regardless if you’re the sole bread winner or you both work, no ONE person is at fault. You should both have a strong interest in your financial goals. (If you don’t, this is your wake-up call to start!) This is a team effort and no one is meant carry the burden alone. Ensure there are no secrets, share your fears and keep those old financial stories out of it.

 

            “Living in the now is the only way to have certainty of your financial future.”

 

Learn your partner’s communication style. This is imperative. Keep in mind that your partner will not hear you if your message is being given in a way they cannot receive. Trust me. When Lori and I first began working together, this took us 6 months to figure out.

 

Have a budget and set goals. Make it fun and dream together. If you’ve never had a budget, I recommend checking out Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.

 

            “Your budget is your financial roadmap to your goals.”

 

Schedule regular celebrations. Yes! Make “money dates” something to look forward to. Once a month shoot to go out and celebrate in your favorite way and take this time to acknowledge what went well, what mistakes were made and what you need to work on. Truly aim to air out any issues at this time unless it is more urgent.

 

            “What doesn’t get celebrated won’t be repeated.”

 

In closing and in order for these steps to work, you must practice integrity when it comes to achieving your goals. Make sure you’re adhering to the above and your feelings around finances – especially as a couple – will lead to more harmony and abundance in all aspects of life.

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Four tips that will change the financial game for you as a couple Why no one is at fault Learning different communication styles Why you need to schedule in regular celebrations

164: Riding The Success Roller Coaster with Fitness Celebrity Natalie Jill

Oct 1, 2018 39:28

Description:

Today’s conversation with the one and only Natalie Jill of Natalie Jill Fitness is long overdue, but I feel like we’re connecting at the perfect time all the same. Having been friends with Natalie Jill for quite some time now, her initial rock-bottom comeback story is amazing, but after experiencing another setback recently, her story is both inspiring and eye-opening.

 

Natalie Jill’s journey began 15 years ago when she found herself at rock bottom – she was a divorced single mom who lost her house, her retirement and gained a lot of weight. She created a vision board to inspire her to make changes, but took it one step further by posting the process on social media for accountability. Not only did she find accountability, she also found a following that quickly led to a $3 million-plus business.

 

Seemingly having it all figured out, it was a shock when Natalie Jill realized that her “following” wasn’t hers and she saw a dramatic downslide to her business. With changing algorithms and a saturated market, she desperately attempted to turn it around by throwing money out to find a solution. Hundreds of thousands of dollars later, Natalie Jill went back to her initial strategy and that was to make authentic connections again – and it’s working like a charm.

 

Natalie Jill gets super honest and vulnerable throughout this episode and reveals what it truly means to be an entrepreneur – the highs and the rock-bottom lows. No stranger to those lows, it definitely made me reflect on how I can better connect with people both in my programs and following. What strides could you make if you connected on a more authentic level?

--   

 

Question Highlights:

What’s your favorite quote? What is your superpower? Who is someone who’s changed your life? What is one of your biggest accomplishments? [When you hit rock bottom], were you more scared that people were going to find out just how bad everything was or were you more scared that your life was changing and transitioning with so many changes so quickly? What was the first steps/thoughts in reconciling where you were at and stepping forward? How did you start to build momentum? How much money have you invested in “coaches” that weren’t the right fit? What would you have done differently? You’ve gone from broke to a $3 million business and back to broke – how has your happiness varied with different levels of income/net worth – or has it? How did your friends change or show up as you went through declines? What’s the most important lesson you’re drawing from your 15-year roller coaster journey? What are you building now? Where do you think the next safest place to build a following should be?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

Natalie’s rock bottom moments The first steps Natalie Jill took to move forward after her rock bottom How accountability and sharing her journey led to her initial success Making authentic connections What went wrong with Natalie Jill’s success Social media and how it impacted her success Getting back to being authentic Failures and self-doubt Natalie Jill’s new podcast (Leveling Up: Creating Everything from Nothing) Why Natalie Jill is shifting her focus to smaller group interactions Natalie Jill’s new book, “Aging in Reverse” (releases May 2019) And so much more…

--

 

Natalie Jill’s Thoughts…

 

“Excuses or solutions – you decide.”

 

“Those little steps, over time, add up to big things.”

 

“The only difference between where we are now and where we want to be is our thoughts and actions.”

 

“It was never about my own specific vision, it was specifically about what are they asking for next and let me create that for them.”

 

“It took crashing and burning for me to finally realize what I learned 10 years ago at my rock bottom. It’s about being vulnerable, being real and connecting with people and it’s not about what somebody else is going to do for me.”

 

“My happiness does not relate to money – it relates to connection.”

 

“It’s not a following thing, it’s a connecting thing.”

 

--

Once upon a time, Natalie Jill lost her house, her retirement, her marriage ended and she gained a lot of weight. She was at ROCK BOTTOM. At the time she was in her late thirties and felt doomed. She had all kinds of nagging “False Aggravating Truths” that she believed about herself. She felt too old, too broke, too overweight and too depressed to do anything. She had so many Self Imposed Stops that were in her way.

Something had to shift. Her beliefs weren’t working for her.

She started by changing her STATE and decided she was NOT those self-imposed stops and created a vision for MORE.

In a nutshell, she turned it all around, got her life back and became an inspiration to others.

Now, she kills FAT for a living. The Fat on bodies AND that F.A.T. getting in the way.

163: What Happens If You Lose It All? A Question from Instagram

Sep 27, 2018 12:12

Description:

There’s a misconception out there that only the people who are down and out struggle with their money mindset. I couldn’t disagree with that more – very successful people also feel the same fear. In fact, the other day, I received an DM from a young, super successful woman on Instagram. (By the way, I love getting messages and questions from you so feel free to send them my way @chriswharder).

 

This 24-year-old woman shared how while she was presently super successful, she was terrified of being successful and having it ripped away. See, when she was younger (age 14) her father lost his job and to make ends meet she ended up having to work 5-7 jobs to keep the household afloat. Can anyone relate to this? I know I can. Following are the five tips I shared with this woman to help her work through and manage her fear:

 

It’s better to have something to begin with then to never get it in the first place. It’s good to have a healthy fear so you keep working hard. Don’t see it as fear, see it as urgency. Be present. Live in the now. You’re doing great – enjoy it! Stop worrying about something in the future that may or may not happen (hint: it probably won’t). Your abundance that you have right now is because you had the talent to create it. You can’t lose that ability to create more of it!

 

“It’s not your current assets that make you rich. It’s your ability to create wealth at any time.”

 

Hire a coach to help you keep the right perspective and keep growing. Whether it’s one on one or a mastermind, up-level your tribe!

 

Thanks so much again to this woman (who knows who she is) for sharing your story. You’ve helped so many others and helped me turn it into an incredible episode in the process. I can’t wait to hear who else has a similar story – be sure to share with me on IG!

162: From 5 Million Dollars to Broke - A Money Mindset Lesson with Ashley Stahl

Sep 24, 2018 51:32

Description:

I don’t even know where to begin telling you about today’s guest, Ashley Stahl. I met Ashley in my mastermind group, but it was recently that I really sat down to hear her story, and wow! Prepare yourself to be in awe of her mind-blowing journey so far.

 

While now a career coach and writer with successful business, her career journey began early on at age 23 in Washington D.C. at the Pentagon managing a high-level counter-terrorism program. She excelled in the position and knew that it looked good on paper, but she knew it wasn’t the right fit when she wound up with a bag over her head in a routine drill. Ashley knew she could continue on, but she also knew that she wasn’t staying true to who she was.

 

Ashley left the Pentagon and high-tailed it back to L.A. where she grew up, found another job in intelligence in the private sector, but also started a side hustle as a career coach. That side hustle is now a thriving business, and as you’ll hear in this episode, it was full of highs and lows (millionaire to broke to millionaire).

 

Be sure to listen in as she walks us through her challenging moments and how she’s still working on releasing limiting beliefs around money, success and relationships. Ashely offers a broad spectrum of empowering advice and I hope it inspires you to do more as well.

--   

 

Question Highlights:

What’s one thing you’re challenged by? What’s one of your superpowers? Who is someone who’s changed your life? What is one of your favorite accomplishments? Can you tell us about your counter-terrorist job with the Pentagon at only 23 years old? How did you get your job at the Pentagon? How did you make and lose $5 million? When did your success go the wrong direction? What’s the verdict? Have your key people stayed in your life despite your success ups and downs? How has your view of money changed? Do you have a favorite moment of giving?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

Ashley’s education path How Ashley wound up working in Washington D.C. at the Pentagon The magic of human connection Ashley’s “You Turn” moment Ashley’s career path from the Pentagon to career coach Navigating through a loss and struggle money mindset Automated webinars Why Ashley had the belief that success and fear always occurred together How attorneys and Ashley sabotaged her success False urgency The work Ashley is doing to release the belief that people are going to screw her over The role generosity has played in Ashley’s life And so much more…

--

 

Ashley’s Thoughts…

 

“Never rob someone of their rock bottom.”

 

“If you’re a wobbly coach, you’re going to get a wobbly customer.”

 

“I became an entrepreneur because I’m creative, not to fix things.”

 

“Quitting can be for winners. There is a glory in quitting.”

 

“The trauma wasn’t in losing my money – that was a gift.”

 

“It’s priceless to be able to go out in the world and be yourself.”

 

“Worthiness is our birthright.”

161: How To Bust Through Your "Ceiling", FAST!

Sep 20, 2018 16:35

Description:

Some may find it hard to believe but everyone, and I mean everyone, has a ceiling. Yes, even Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey or any other wildly successful person has one. And here’s why:

 

“Everybody has a ceiling or they’d be higher than they are now.”

 

For example, let’s say a person is making $100K a year. Why aren’t they making $200K? Because they have a ceiling. You can change the numbers, but you’ll still get the same answer. But here’s the good news. Every ceiling can be lifted. If you need a visual, think about those cheap drop-down tile ceilings that people used to put in their finished basements. When installed, yes, there’s a ceiling there, but it can easily be busted through to expose more space above it. And you can do the same with your “ceiling.”

 

Here are five steps to help you do just that.

 

Acknowledge that you have a ceiling and you’ve hit it. Now look for patterns and see how you can change it. Choose to bust through the ceiling. This is your moment to burn the boats!
“Make sure it’s a real choice to bust through your ceiling – not just a desire.” Choose new beliefs. Choose to believe what is possible. Look for evidence and beliefs to support why you’re worthy. Choose new rituals. Reinforce your beliefs with new rituals. Read more, take new courses, set better boundaries, meditate more (or start), schedule forced creative time – the options are endless. Just know that your new beliefs won’t stay if you don’t reinforce them. Uplevel your tribe. Your current tribe may be holding you back. This can be difficult, but know that you’re never leaving anyone behind because they always have the choice to come along. Choose people who have been where you want to go.

“Most people are in a habit of choosing people that make them feel good, not people that make them do better.”

 

All of the above steps build on top of one another and you can’t support one without the other. Because we know how important it is to have guidance when it comes to navigating this, we’ve created our life course, Aligned, that helps you choose new beliefs and rituals – and also connects you to a new tribe. Enrollment just opened this week and we’re so excited to help others on this journey! Join now and receive a special bonus!

159: Who Should Have The POWER? The Good Guys or The Bad Guys

Sep 13, 2018 12:00

Description:

I’ve been wanting to talk about today’s topic for a while and am excited to dive in to whether or not the statement “Money is power,” is true. And if it is true, who should have the power? The good guys or the bad guys?

 

First off, I do believe that money is power because we all get an opportunity to “vote” with our dollars. The more money you have, the more say you have. People with more money are often looked up to more as a guiding example and they tend to have more of a responsibility with that power as well. They’re leaders and they don’t hoard their power, they share it. The only catch? We want power in the hands of good people who are going to do the above.

 

This same principle is shared in the book, “The Traveler’s Gift” by Andy Andrews. Here are a couple of his quotes that sum it up nicely and also mirror a good portion of the For the Love of Money philosophy, too

 

“To do great deeds, great power is essential.” – Andy Andrews

 

“If money is power, do not run from power. Gather it as you would the finest fruit. Power in the hands of a good person is like a drink of water on a hot summer day. It refreshes everyone with whom it comes in contact with.” – Andy Andrews

 

Andy goes on to describe that there are three different levels of power:

Those who have enough money and power to get by Those who make enough to make things more comfortable for their families and sometimes a few others Those who make enough to change the world. They ignore what’s popular and do what’s right to lead hundreds and thousands of others toward the right thing.

 

We all have the capacity to do more, but so many of us fear it. I encourage you to stop being afraid to step out and grab that power! And similar to what my podcast says every week:

 

“Grab your power and use it for good!”

158: Stop Wasting 76% of Your Facebook Marketing Dollars with Jacob Baadsgaard

Sep 10, 2018 46:14

Description:

I’m so glad that I was introduced to the founder and CEO of Disruptive Advertising, Jacob Baadsgaard. I was pulled to interview him instantly when I saw the powerful link between his income and generosity level. Believing that tithing supports an abundance mindset he’s also incorporated those beliefs into his business too, but creating a company charity committee.

 

In addition to the above, Jacob created Disruptive Advertising to help other businesses get the most out of their Facebook and Google ad dollars by getting their data in order and creating the right website experience. With clients spending millions per month in ads, it’s obvious Jacob and his team know what they’re doing. In this episode, he shares a few key tips that contributed to his success in hopes that it may help you turn around the performance of yours. I hope our conversation inspires you to do and give more, too!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

What’s one thing you’re challenged by? How did you develop your company’s charity committee and how does it work? Can you give us an example of where you donated money and worked physically on a project? What side effects have you seen in your team as a result of giving? What does Disruptive Advertising do for people? What sets you apart from other similar companies? What are you doing differently as an entrepreneur that others aren’t doing in their first year to get past 7 figures in revenue right away? Have you always been entrepreneurial? What’s a massive hiccup or hurdle you’ve had to navigate through? What’s something that people should be doing that they’re not when it comes to digital marketing? Where does your generosity come from? How do you want your kids to grow up and view money? What role has your faith played in your capability to be successful?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

Why Jacob makes giving a priority Why tithing supports an abundant mindset What sets Disruptive Advertising apart from other companies Why you should say no to bad revenue Specific vs. generic targeting Why less is more in ads Tips for hiring new people What you should be doing when it comes to digital marketing for your business Generosity How Jacob wants his kids to view money The role faith has played in Jacob’s success Creating good environments for growth in life and business And so much more…

--

 

Jacob’s Thoughts…

 

“The more I put in the world, the more comes back.”

 

“We come in, we kick ass, and we are great at what we do so we can provide wealth for ourselves and have enough left over to make a difference in the community.”

 

--

After growing one of his first PPC clients from 25 to 250 employees, Jake realized he had a gift for using pay-per-click marketing to drive dramatic business results. To help more companies succeed online, Jake founded Disruptive Advertising, a PPC, and CRO management agency that has helped hundreds of companies realize unprecedented growth and profitability from the online advertising.

 

In the four years since its founding, Disruptive Advertising has grown from two employees working in Jake’s basement to a flourishing agency with more than 90 employees and a run rate of over $12 million – putting it at #145 on the 2017 Inc 500 list!

 

Jakes ability to assess and clearly explain complicated issues has made him a favorite in a variety of forums. Jake is a regular contributor on a variety of blogs including notable publications like Entrepreneur, Forbes and SearchEngine Land where his wit and ability to make even tedious topics engaging elicits rave reviews from his readers.

 

Jake’s humor, charm, and insight aren’t limited to the written word, though. He has spoken at numerous events and webinars including SMX, Kissmetrics, Create Nation, Unbounce, PRSA, Starfest, VWO and others and has a gift for both entertaining and educating his audience. Attendees usually leave comments on how much they enjoyed his sessions – and how much he gave them to think about.

 

As a business owner, author, and speaker, Jacob Baadsgaard’s witty, thoughtful and genuine approach to pay-per-click advertising makes him a compelling leader in the digital marketing arena!

157: Why Isn't This "Good Enough?"

Sep 6, 2018 13:17

Description:

Has anyone ever asked you, “Why isn’t this good enough? You’ve already done x-y-z, so what do you want to do more?” Most often the people who ask have good intentions, but they don’t understand that you’re called to do bigger things. And this can be painful for others or make them feel threatened for a couple different reasons.

 

First, they may just feel threatened and afraid that you’ll move on and leave them behind. And secondly, it forces them to look in the mirror and where they’re at and they’re not liking what reflects back. But what they don’t realize is that almost none of us have done what we’re called to do – at least all aspects of it. We’re not built to remain the same (just look at nature!) and that means that we have to keep striving for more.

 

“Life isn’t meant to be good enough; it’s meant to keep growing.”

 

So if anyone questions you, don’t feel offended. They’re just not tapped into their higher calling yet, and you’re entitled to pursue anything you want. This isn’t good enough because you’re called to change more lives by following that calling and living a better life each and every day.

 

  

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why you should be unapologetic for what you have Why what you have may not be good enough Why your quest for more threatens others

156: How To Pay As Little Taxes As Possible with Diane Gardner

Sep 3, 2018 45:59

Description:

It’s super difficult to have a good money mindset if you have a fear around a certain topic of money. And I’ve found that one of the most common fears out there is taxes. That’s why I’m so grateful for people like today’s guest, certified tax coach Diane Gardner, who help quiet those fears by arming you with knowledge that helps you navigate the tax space.

 

Diane’s goal is to help her clients (and others) pay as little taxes as possible (legally). When it comes to taxes, so many people fear the unknown and that’s why Diane coaches her clients to know the basics of tax planning.

 

If you’re an entrepreneur who tends to be nervous about taxes, prepare to take notes and soak up the value of our conversation. Diane shares so much priceless knowledge in regard to the new tax cuts, the different business structures, what you can and can’t write off – and so much more. I learned so many new things (not a lot of good news for my taxes), and I can’t wait to hear how these tips help you too!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

What is one of your superpowers? Who is someone who’s changed your life? What is one of your favorite quotes? What’s one regret that you have? Why do taxes strike such a fear in people? What should people be doing to help mitigate their fears? Are taxes a good thing or bad thing? Who wins with the new tax cuts? What are some of the changes we should be excited about? What are some of the urban legends out there about things that people can or can’t write off? What are some common pitfalls when it comes to taxes? What’s the best way to make tax payments? Why do you like masterminds so much? Who is your perfect type of client?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

The fear of the unknown when it comes to taxes Whether taxes are good or bad things Ways to pay as little taxes as possible How different states view taxes and LLCs The differences between a sole proprietorship (schedule C), LLC, S-Corp and C-Corp The recent changes in tax cuts What a QBI deduction is and who can and can’t take advantage of it What can and can’t be written off The basics of tax planning Why keeping mileage logs are necessary The importance of keeping receipts The different types of meals that can be written off Philanthropy and donation write-offs Why it’s beneficial to pair advertising with philanthropy Masterminds And so much more…

Diane’s Thoughts…

 

“Look for strategies that fit you in your business, not strategies that just fit business overall.”

 

“If we don’t give back to our community and those around us, we don’t thrive in business.”

 

“Once you start giving back, you open yourself up to receive blessings from other people.”

155: Be Grateful For Your Seeds

Aug 30, 2018 09:59

Description:

I just returned from the last leg of my two-month vacation and I feel recharged and freaking ready to go! So today I want to remind you to be grateful for your seed. What the heck do I mean?

 

You see, we all have special little seeds inside of us and that in turn becomes your business and eventually your wealth. Those little seeds could be a variety of things, such as a special talent or skill, an idea or some sort of innovation that no one has. Regardless of what it is, we all have them, but the problem is that we’re not grateful for them. We’re not grateful because that seed hasn’t turned into a full-blown crop/harvest yet and we’re comparing our seed to another’s crop (that yes, was once a seed).

 

Here’s where people need to step back and realize that only time and consistent effort will turn that seed into a crop. Don’t compare your journey to someone who’s already put that time/effort in or is in a completely different area of expertise.

 

“Your seed is unique to you and that’s why it’s valuable.”

 

Stop being pissed at the rainy days when things are seemingly putting your seed at a standstill and understand that we need those days to help us grow – literally! 

 

When it comes to comparing – just stop!

 

“Look at each other’s seeds with admiration, not envy.”

 

It’s not a competition. Instead, figure out a way that you can help those who are already excelling (or maybe someone who’s not). I assure you that when you collaborate and help others, your business will grow faster and bigger as a result. Know that if you’re putting in the effort and taking care of your seed that it will eventually grow into a bountiful harvest – it just needs a little (sometimes a lot) TLC from you.

 

“Be grateful for what your seed is about to be, but also what it is today.”

 

Your seeds are unique to YOU so don’t deprive the world of its greatness. My goal is for us all to be happier, healthier and wealthier farmers reaping a huge harvest! Who’s with me?

  

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why time and consistent effort are essential when it comes to turning your seed into a crop Why we shouldn’t compare our seed to another’s The importance of collaboration

154: Life Coach To The Stars, Tim Storey

Aug 27, 2018 51:55

Description:

It was such a privilege to have my friend, Tim Storey, on the podcast. No matter how long or short our conversations are I always leave them a better person – and I know you will too. His words will set a fire in anyone’s soul!

Tim’s story began in Compton, California where his family of seven lived in a two-bedroom apartment. It was there that he learned to “think big in small places.” That thought compounded later on in a life-changing conversation with his sixth-grade teacher when he was told, “I think you are brilliant.” From that moment, Tim bought into that idea, took it to heart and committed himself to helping that brilliant come out in some way.

Fast forward to today and let’s just say, Tim’s teacher knew what he was talking about. Since that day, Tim has nurtured that seed of belief with faith, taking action and believing in a little bit of magic, too – and loves sharing that knowledge with others.

I hope you enjoy our inspiring conversation as Tim discusses miracles, taking power steps, the difference between a God idea and a good idea and what to do if you find yourself in a season of setback. Can’t wait to hear what you think and if you experience any breakthroughs as a result!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

What is one of your superpowers? Who is someone who’s changed your life? What’s your favorite speech you’ve ever given? What’s one regret that you have? Could you share a little about your upbringing? How does someone go from believing in miracles to expecting them? How early did you know/expect that you would do big things? Is it our responsibility to go find these moments of inspiration or should we just wait around and trip across them? As a Godly man, what is your view on gathering wealth? How does someone get into a place of finding these God ideas and how do they take action? Can you tell us about your Utmost app? Is it OK to give out loud? Or are you supposed to keep it to yourself?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

Tim’s upbringing and life-changing conversation with his 6th grade teacher Miracles – believing, expecting, receiving and releasing them Surrounding yourself with those with similar mindsets and motives Taking power steps (steps with purpose and intent) How the Jackson 5/Michael Jackson made Tim believe in magic Intentionally going after knowledge and information that builds faith and makes us better people Building faith on a daily basis What to do if you’re in a season of setback What a God idea is vs. a good idea When and why you need to stop and take inventory Partnering with power for a comeback Humbling yourself to learn what you need to know The Law of Harvest Tim’s favorite moment of giving And so much more…

--

 

Tim’s Thoughts…

 

“Think big in small places.”

 

“Feed your faith, starve your doubt.”

 

“You cannot give what you don’t have.”

 

“The way to get out of a difficult situation is to work your land.”

 

“Success is finding the need and filling it.”

 

“God has blessed me so now I can be a blessing.”

 

“An utmost God does not want almost children.”

153: What You Have TODAY Does Not Determine TOMORROW'S Abundance

Aug 23, 2018 09:03

Description:

If you’re experiencing feelings of lack, scarcity or worry right now, I hope my message today helps free you:

 

“Your abundance tomorrow is not determined by what you have today.”

 

We all have these feelings at one time or another, whether we’re super successful or barely making ends meet – and that’s OK! But we must do our best to get back into an energy of abundance by taking one step forward (big or small).

 

Today, you may not have what you want, but I bet you have a great idea and some skillsets that could help you put it into action. You never know what tomorrow will bring… Maybe with the help of another thriving individual, you’ll put it into action and have a major breakthrough, but you have to keep taking action.

 

Because there’s only one thing that will create the abundance for you…and that’s YOU! It’s up to you to go just one more step further than you already have.

 

“Your future is in your hands.”

 

Take 100% responsibility for where you are today. Yes, the good and the bad. This may feel either frustrating or empowering, but by taking responsibility, you have control of your life. You receive the blame and the credit no matter what.

 

Sure I’m abundant right now, but Lori and I had our down-and-out moments too. There’s nothing special about me. I have a few talents and a whole lot of gaps to go with it. That’s why it’s up to the individual to fill in those missing gaps and take action to fill them.

 

We are all just one step, one moment away from finally creating the abundance we want tomorrow. It’s just up to us to go and grab it! Are you ready? You’ve got this.

  

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why abundance is not determined by what you have The one thing that determines your abundance Taking 100% responsibility for where you’re at

152: How to Connect with ANYONE with Alex Banayan

Aug 20, 2018 01:11:43

Description:

Imagine being set on a trajectory for the majority of your life, only to wake up one day questioning whether or not you’re on your path or a path someone else put you on.

 

This is what happened to my guest and author, Alex Banayan. From an early age, Alex’s parents’ dream was for him to become a doctor, and up until his freshman year in college it was what he thought he wanted to – until he realized it didn’t. Upon this realization, he attempted to seek the answers for how other successful people got their start – only to realize that such a book didn’t exist. Overcome with inspiration and a drive to write one on his own, he knew he had to find the funds to back this passion project.

 

Having trouble thinking about anything but this project, the day before his freshman year final exams, he made the decision to trade an all-nighter studying for exams with one on how to hack The Price Is Right. With a slim chance of actually winning, Alex beat the odds, won a sailboat, sold it, and used the prize money to fund his quest to learn from the world’s most successful people.

 

Throughout our conversation, we talk all about his seven-year journey to write The Third Door and all the rejections, “flinch” moments and courage that took place to make it happen. Alex is an EPIC storyteller, which you’ll hear in this episode and his book. There were so many goose-bump-inducing moments and nuggets of valuable insight shared and I can’t wait for you to experience all of them and let me know your thoughts, too. Of all the authors I’ve interviewed, this is literally my favorite book so far. Go out and grab his book ASAP – you won’t be sorry! 

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

Who is someone who’s changed your life? What’s your favorite speech you’ve ever given? What’s one regret that you have? How did you end up interviewing the world’s most influential people? How do you hack the Price Is Right? How many names made the list and how many made the book? Who was the coolest person you ended up meeting? Who made you the most nervous/prompted the biggest “flinch?” What’s your advice to get over your “flinch?” What was the worst rejection you received? Were there any people along the way that pulled you back on track and didn’t allow you to quit? Who did you want to interview that you weren’t able to? Where did you get this obsessive persistence from? What would you say is the single-most-important lesson of your book? Now that you’ve spent 7 years knocking down doors, is it fate or luck that finally allows these things to happen? Or is it good old-fashioned making it happen yourself? How do you view money, success and wealth after writing The Third Door?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

How Alex went from an 18-year-old pre-med kid whose parents’ biggest dream was for him to be a doctor to interviewing some of the world’s most influential people Alex’s big win on The Price Is Right Where the list of people started when he first set out to write his book, The Third Door The journey of getting through to influential people What the crippling “flinch” is The fear that was present in all the successful people he interviewed The difference between fear and courage Rejection and two lessons Alex learned from it What fueled Alex’s persistence when writing his book Why Alex believes luck accounts for 90% of his success The role generosity played in his book Why you don’t become a billionaire on a salary And so much more…

--

 

Alex’s Thoughts…

 

“The most extreme expectations are the ones that aren't explicitly said.”

 

“Courage is acknowledging how scared you are, analyzing the consequences, and then deciding that you care so much about it you’re going to take one thoughtful step forward anyway.”

 

“The core belief was like a thread that, even in my darkest times, I could hold onto and it kept me from calling it quits.”

 

“The only thing worse than an unproductive hour is quitting all together.”

 

“Persistence is the means of achieving the goal.”

 

“The soul of the book is possibility.”

 

“You can give someone all the best tools and knowledge in the world and their life can still be stuck, but if you change what someone believes is possible, they’ll never be the same.”

 

“The strongest lessons are the ones that are never said.”

 

“The hard work is the last 10%.”

151: How to Raise Your Game Quickly

Aug 16, 2018 11:27

Description:

While I never like to talk about my schedule being “too busy,” at the start of this week I was downright intimidated with mine. Fortunately for me, a friend of mine was in town and invited me out for brunch. That particular time is usually scheduled for my morning workout, but I’m so glad I chose an impromptu brunch instead.

 

This particular friend has a 100-million-dollar business and every time we’re able to connect, we have the best conversations and I wind up leaving with a ton of brand new ideas that will potentially help grow my businesses. This get-together was no different and as a bonus, it also reshaped my view on my schedule and what I get to do.

 

So if you’re looking for the fastest ways to up your game or become unstuck if you’ve plateaued, it’s time to find more tribe to connect with.

 

“Break bread with people who are doing better than you.”

 

Another way to connect with people? Charity events or galas. Lori and I attended a Pencils of Promise charity event on Tuesday evening and again, new ideas and ambitions were sparked while sitting next to and having conversations with multi-millionaires. These are the people who you want to spend time in order to regularly break through to new levels.

 

So I encourage you, go find those people or events. Ask around, Google it… “You have to seek out and make these connections happen.”

 

Please share what conversations and/or connections give you new ideas and have you constantly striving for more over on my IG page (@chriswharder)! I love hearing what works for other people.

149: The Surest Person in the Room WINS

Aug 9, 2018 10:10

Description:

Do you ever wonder why some people succeed and connect with people right away, while others, when given the same opportunities, just can’t seem to pull it together? Over the years I’ve noticed one common trend that sets these people apart, no matter the kind of sales, business or opportunity – and that’s certainty.

 

“The most valuable thing you have is swagger.”

 

I was able to observe this same trait while at an entrepreneurial event this week with 15,000 people. Everyone at this event has the hopes of being really successful, but realistically only about 1,000 will actually see those results. So if all these people were offered the same products and opportunities, why isn’t everyone really successful?

 

It comes down to your energetic posture. When you approach someone, do you begin your conversation with confidence and excitement? Or do you tend to act shy and unsure of yourself while tripping over your words instead?

 

When you’re first meeting someone and/or presenting them with an opportunity, they want to look at you and see that you a.) Know where you’re going b.) How you’re getting there and c.) Know who you want to come with you. Sounds simple, but within that first 30-60 seconds of meeting someone, people are often already making the decision to link arms with you – or not.

 

“The surest person in the room wins.”

 

Now this isn’t to say that you won’t get nervous – we all have different areas in our lives that bring about that flutter, but it’s your choice to show up either big, confident and sure of yourself or small, meek and unsure.

 

“You don’t have to show up how you feel – it’s just a choice.”

 

So stop telling yourself that you can’t do x-y-z because you’re too shy or introverted. It’s just a story! Every single one of you can show up as the most certain and confident person you know you are at the core. And it doesn’t take years to do! Give it a few practice runs, get out there with certainty and it’s inevitable that your success will follow suit!

The No. 1 reason some people succeed and some don’t ­– even though they’re given the same opportunities The importance of energetic posture Putting a stop to limiting beliefs and stories

147: How To Grow Your Audience

Aug 2, 2018 09:22

Description:

Today I’m going to give you the answer to the question of why your audience might not be growing – regardless of what business you’re in. Brace yourself, it’s really quite simple.

 

The No. 1 reason your audience isn’t growing is because you’re not putting information and content – that’s shareable – out there. But was does it mean to be truly shareable? It’s about blowing the minds of your current audience so much that they are compelled to share it with their audience – and then their audience becomes your audience. See how this can turn into powerful ripple effect? Your content has to be so DANG good that it practically forces others to share.

 

Here are three ways to increase your chances:

Start creating a better experience. This can happen simply by always having the posture and intent of putting something extraordinary out there. Do it more often. Create, create, create…share, share, share. Ask others to share and give them directions.

 

That last point may make you feel a bit awkward, but people crave specific directions and certainty. And besides, you likely won’t receive what you don’t ask for, right?

 

So here’s a little test… go over to Instagram, give me follow @chriswharder and share one of my posts, too. Make sure to tag me so I can send you a thank you! I love hearing from you all and can’t wait to hear what happens when you implement the above tips!

Taken aback by this, soon after set out to find a more sustainable way for people of the Amazon to provide for their families without sacrificing their ecosystem.

145: An Amazing Story of Giving vs. Judging

Jul 26, 2018 15:00

Description:

Lori and I just wrapped up our trip to Europe and wow, it was one of our greatest experiences to date – not just enjoyment wise, but we learned so many things about ourselves and other people.

 

One particular story and lesson we’ve taken home taught us about perspective on how people think, but don’t take action.

 

While having lunch in a beautiful square in Spain, we overheard the conversation of a group of women on vacation at a nearby table. They were talking about another person they knew – someone who presumably had a lot of money. They were appalled that someone could buy a $60,000 watch when they could use that money instead to feed people. Of course, my ears perked up because this was clearly a money mindset issue.

 

But before I go further, please know that by sharing the following story my goal is not to brag; nor is it to judge these women. After all, we’re all on different journeys, right?

 

“Make a difference, don’t make a judgment.”

 

Their judgments all come down to perspective. So yes, a $60,000 watch is a great deal of money to an everyday family with an average income. But if this person has $100 million or billion, it likely doesn’t affect how they give. What if they annually give away $50 million? To this particular person, $60,000 may very well be a drop in the bucket compared to the impact they’re making already.

 

As these women continued discussing, suddenly a beautiful woman entered the square. She was a woman who I could tell was beautiful inside and out, but it was clear that she was mentally and physically challenged – and homeless.

 

A bit later, we heard this angelic voice sing one of the most moving songs we’d ever heard. We looked around and around and found ourselves looking at this same woman. Our minds were blown and I felt compelled to get up, walk the 500 feet to where she was standing (with a cup in hand for money), and give her 50 Euros. She turned so quickly she dropped the cup filled with coins. I bent down to help her pick it all up and place the 50 Euros in her cup. When she realized what I had given her, her face lit up with a smile so big I couldn’t contain my own, and it was in that moment, even though we didn’t speak each other’s languages, I could see the profound gratitude she felt.

 

The woman continued to sing and weave her way through the square and eventually made her way near us and toward the table of women. She stopped at our table, rewarding us again with a bright smile, and proceeded onward. With her cup extended for money, these women brushed her (as well as other performers) off. This was a clear example of people preaching and talking about how someone else should give, but when given an opportunity to improve someone else’s life, they didn’t.

 

I tell you this story to demonstrate that there are a lot of people out there judging, talking and preaching, but all of that adds up to nothing in the lives of people who actually need a handout. What does add up are the people who have a few extra dollars to give in the moment when someone shows up that could be given to.

 

So, do you want to be one of the talkers or the do'ers? I think you already know what my answer is.

Cole Hatter is back on For the Love of Money and this time we’ve asked his wife and partner in crime, Sanja Hatter, to join him.

143: Are You Being Abundant OR Financially Irresponsible??

Jul 19, 2018 14:45

Description:

Today we’re talking about the huge difference between being abundant and financially irresponsible. You see so many people want to be abundant but they’re using abundance and increasing their financial thermostat as an excuse.

 

“Abundance without responsibility is stupidity.”

 

Sounds harsh, but here’s what I mean. If you’re living outside of your means, perhaps buying high-price items (homes, cars etc.) when you don’t have the secured money to do it, you’re not actually living in abundance. On the contrary, you’re likely attracting more lack, and you feel fraudulent and broke because you’re not ready to spend like that. And let’s be honest, when you’re broke it’s hard to feel abundant.

 

I can talk about this firsthand because Lori and I were once living this way. We had the house and the cars, but the recession it and we felt the complete opposite of abundant. It’s my hope that by sharing this that you’ll remember this lesson and avoid going through something similar.

 

So how do you know when to feel abundant and buy nice things, or when to hold back? It sounds too easy, but your soul knows. Your gut knows. Tune in and listen to what it feels like when you’re going to make a purchase.

 

To help keep it on your radar, I’ve come up with seven simple rules/steps that will help clue you if you’re ready to start spending more.

 

Set aside an emergency fund that covers one month of expenses. Work to stop buying anything with unsecured debt (credit cards) that you’re not going to pay off right away. If you have unsecured debt, start paying it off as quickly as you can. This is also the point where I believe you should start working in an occasional splurge (I don’t like the all or nothing approach). Focus on your savings by working up to 6 months’ worth of expenses Once you’ve reached a savings of 1 years’ worth of expenses – start funding your retirement. The 1-Year Rule. At this point, once you can buy and want a bigger-ticket item, wait ONE year, then buy it. Want to speed up the above process? Invent more income!

 

Once you start doing the above, I know you will attract true abundance and in turn do great things for yourself – and others!

The difference between being abundant or financially irresponsible Being aware of your financial patterns 7 rules that help you know when you can start treating yourself

141: My Quarter Million Dollar AMEX Bill...WTF??

Jul 12, 2018 11:58

Description:

Picture it… You receive your monthly credit card statement, open it and find that the balance due is a quarter million dollars! You’d be blown away, right? Well, let me tell you... I sure was.

At first, I felt instant feelings of anger, panic…and scarcity. Yes, I still have flashes of that money mindset belief, but this one knocked the wind out of me. I wasn’t expecting that balance – honestly, it wasn’t even on my radar. My range of emotions went from holy crap – $250K could buy me a nice home in my hometown of Green Bay, WI to how the hell did we spend that much money in 30 days? Were we spending irresponsibly? Will this be the new norm?

Then, I slowed that train down and realized we had a lot of expenses last month. I hosted my mastermind group and we go ALL out. We spent two weeks away on Lori’s book tour with our team. Add to that social media ads for the book, a charity donation, international travel and more…well, I’d say we got an awful lot for that quarter million. 

So I reversed that scarcity mindset and instead used it as a moment to practice abundance and celebrate it. It was up to me to take this opportunity and zero in on how fortunate we are to have the money to pay this bill and to see just how far we’ve come over the years. Not to mention how many AMEX points we’re getting out of this bill, too! ;-)

 

It was time to practice what I teach and turn this into a celebratory moment. While I had 30 days to pay my bill, I made the decision to pay it right then and there – because I could. I put on some happy music, poured myself a glass of scotch whiskey and paid it in full. Why put off paying it when it will only put out signals of lack and fear to the universe?

 

While some may be critical of my transparency, I didn’t share this story to be criticized. I shared it to demonstrate that we all still struggle with our money mindset beliefs. Will these beliefs ever go away? No, but you’ll learn to handle them more quickly and with more ease because you have the tools to walk you through them.

 

I hope this episode inspires YOU to celebrate each and every one of your wins – big and small.

140: How to Be a More Confident Speaker with Yahya Bakkar

Jul 9, 2018 56:02

Description:

 

The name Yahya in Arabic means “alive,” and my friend and guest, Yahya Bakkar embodies his name to a T! 

Full honesty, when I first met him in our mastermind, I thought he was just this loud person putting on an act, but within 10 minutes, I realized it wasn’t an act at all – that’s just who he was and it was awesome! In fact, I discovered that it was these traits that I wished I possessed more of. And since that time, Yahya has given me permission to be louder, bigger, more self-expressed and perfectly imperfect.

After hearing everything Yahya’s gone through, however, it’s hard to believe that he’s such a positive and high energy person. From complicated parental relationships and struggles with religion to following his heart in terms of his career and marrying his high school sweetheart, Yahya discovered what it means to be fully and unapologetically self-expressed and now strives to help others do the same.

Whether you want to become a better speaker or just become more self-expressed, our conversation is a must listen. Can’t wait to hear what you take away from it!

Yahya’s Thoughts…

 

“Real, genuine and authentic confidence comes from a grounded sense of self-esteem and self-worth.”

 

“Know you’re valuable because you exist.”

 

“I’m self-centered – not selfish.”

 

“The more income you make, the more impact you’ll have.”

 

“You’re so much more than what confines you in the material world.”

139: I Found I Out That I STILL STRUGGLE With This...

Jul 5, 2018 11:23

Description:

This week, while going through the decision-making process of buying a new car, I had a surprising moment of self-discovery... I still struggle with my money mindset. Let me know if you can relate.

 

Many of you know, that I previously owned a Ferrari, and it was a dream come true to own one. However, there were a couple reasons why this car just wasn’t working for me anymore.

 

Lori didn’t enjoy the Ferrari like I did. Being more of a race car, it’s not as comfortable, loud and just different to drive. She did like it and tolerated riding in it because she knew how much I loved it.

 

Full honesty, there were a lot of times where I just felt weird about driving it. You’d either have people yelling nasty comments or others who when stopped at a light snapped pictures like paparazzi. It was a lot of extra attention and it didn’t always feel good.

 

Here was my dilemma though, and where I still realized I struggled with money mindset. I had some resistance around letting my Ferrari go, because letting that go meant I was also getting rid of that attention because even though it sometimes annoyed me and I loved it, too. By parting with the Ferrari, I was letting go of part of my perceived significance and what it represented.

 

And that’s when it hit me. I wasn’t being unapologetic about wealth! I was letting what others thing influence my feelings – and this is exactly why I do a podcast around money mindset! You teach what you need help with the most, am I right?

 

“We are all significance-seeking machines.”

 

And this is OK! It doesn’t matter what significance we seek as long as it fits in with your moral compass and how you want to show up in the world. So if you haven’t mastered your money mindset yet, don’t beat yourself up – I haven’t either! No one has.

 

“Growth is the goal – not perfection.”

 

I obviously still have small money mindset battles in my head, but I’m learning from every one of them – and I know you will too. 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

How Chris discovered that he still struggles with money mindset Why we’re all searching for significance Growth over perfection

138: Believing Your Way to Success with Danny Morel

Jul 2, 2018 56:04

Description:

 

I love hearing success stories – especially from individuals who found theirs from the ground up. My guest today, Danny Morel, is one of these stories. Considered the “man of the house” at an early age after a cross-country move from New York to California, he shouldered a lot in order to protect and provide for his family. From driving at age 13 to starting his first business at age 18, he knew he was wired for more in life.

Since that time, Danny has run successful businesses, only to lose everything when the market crashed, and once again fought his way back to become the owner of several businesses that earn more than $40 million in revenue. Crediting much of his success to his thought process, he unknowingly (and luckily for us) lays out a step-by-step plan to help others get what they want, too.

You definitely don’t want to miss this inspiring and motivational conversation. Oh and if you’re in the L.A. area July 11-13, be sure to get to tickets to his Relentless event. There will be some incredible speakers and I’m so bummed I can’t make it. Check out how you can get a free $199 general admission ticket in the Resources section!

Question Highlights:

What’s your favorite quote? What’s one of your superpowers? What’s one thing you’re afraid of? What’s one of the most memorable speeches or messages you’ve ever given What’s one of your favorite accomplishments? What did your upbringing look like? What is one of the greatest lessons/personality traits you took away from your situation from age 13-18? How did you think you’d be able to buy your mom a house by 21? What does it feel like to own businesses that earn $40 million in revenue? What’s your advice for those people who aren’t making it happen? How did you get such big names to speak at your Relentless event? Talk us through what “Morel means something” means when you say it to your kids.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

How Danny’s family struggled with their finances early on Danny’s early driving experience at age 13 Danny’s first business at age 18 How Danny learned to get comfortable with pressure Reverse engineering your plan to get what you want Danny’s four-step plan to achieve your goals The difference between just action and “massive and inspired action” Hitting rock bottom when the market crashed and how he came back Why Danny believes in books, events and all learning Danny’s desire to do things with excellence and in the biggest way possible Why real wealth and success come from a healthy mind and spirit And so much more…

--

 

Danny’s Thoughts…

 

“I was always wired to want more in life and likely so because I didn’t have it.”

 

“Pressure is privilege.”

 

“Biblical abundance doesn’t mean you get a lot. It means more flows through you.”

 

“Wealth and success is the byproduct of a wealthy and successful heart and soul.”

Danny Morel is an author, broker, business owner and leader in the Real Estate industry who resides in Southern California.

 

With over 20 years’ experience in the real estate business as a coach, mentor and broker, he embarked on a career as a salesperson at 19. By 27 years old, Danny had earned 1.5 million in commissions during the course of one calendar year. Even more impressive was his ABSOLUTE commitment to creating a leveraged business. Danny successfully closed 150 transactions that year while only averaging 4.5 days a week of work, while others struggled to close 30 transactions while working 7 days a week.

 

His passion for others led him to teach the EXACT principles he followed as a sales person to others through his brokerage that started at zero and within 5 years of opening achieved 800 million dollars in sales annually. In 2017, his brokerage closed nearly 1 billion dollars in sales volume in only its 6th full year in business. His companies have been featured on the Inc 500 and Inc5 000 lists as one of the fastest growing companies in America between 2015 and 2017.

 

People that work with Danny experience transformations that are typically unheard of. 30, 50 even 400% increase in production within 12 months are common play.

 

In 2017 he authored his first book, The Resilience Road Map to provide his step-by-step philosophy of success to entrepreneurs worldwide and launched M.PIRE University, an online coaching university for entrepreneurs now hosting hundreds of clients.

 

When not working on improving the lives of others, Danny enjoys time with his beautiful wife, Claudia and their three boys.

137: How to STAND OUT to Stand Up for Your Message

Jun 28, 2018 09:22

Description:

 

I’ve been noticing lately that there are just too many people who are invisible that need to be seen and share their message with the world. Have you noticed that? Do you ever feel invisible? Perhaps while being an onlooker you wonder how someone’s business is killing it, but you question why or how they’re doing it. Here’s one of the main reasons… they STAND OUT! 

 

Full honesty, it’s hard to stand out today. There’s so much going on in social media and there are so many people doing similar things, so you need to find a unique way to get noticed.

 

“Crack the code and find out how to stand out to get your message heard.”

 

It’s all about grabbing someone’s attention by flashing something “shiny.” Lori and I sometimes call it the “bait and switch.” For example, Lori will show an image of herself that shows her abs, but instead of talking about fitness she’ll talk about self-development and what she’s passionate about teaching. It’s all about getting people to take noticed and then teaching or telling your message.

 

If you don’t want to be invisible, it’s imperative that you stand out. And this doesn’t just apply to social media, it applies to everyday life, too. Make sure what you’re putting out there not only gets you noticed, but supports your message.

 

“If you don’t catch people’s attention, your great efforts to create impact will not be seen.”

 

Here are a couple tips to help you get started:

Get resourceful. This means ZERO excuses. It’s not about what you have, it’s about using what you’ve got. It’s about everything that makes you, YOU – your unique style, manners, sense of humor etc.

 

Stop being so humble! Nobody is SEEING you. Stop worrying what other people are going to think and share your message. The right people will see it – trust in this.

 

It’s time for you to stand out in order to stand up! What are you going to start doing RIGHT now to start standing out for your message today? I can’t wait to hear and see just how you’re going to grab all of our attention!

136: How PLAY Can Boost Your Business with Rob Murgatroyd

Jun 25, 2018 38:39

Description:

It was a blast to sit down and talk with one of my best friends, fellow entrepreneur and podcaster, Rob Murgatroyd. He’s changed my life in more ways than one, but I’m most grateful for him and our friendship because he taught me how to incorporate more play into my life. Because what fun is being successful if you can’t enjoy it, right?

Today Rob is sharing how he finds balance between work and play and why you’re doing yourself (and likely your business) a disservice by not finding it. He admits that it’s not always the easiest task, but if you focus on what you really want your life to look like and create the plans to go along with it, you’ll be well on your way.

It’s my hope that this episode encourages and inspires YOU to get out there and PLAY hard!  

 

Question Highlights:

What’s your favorite quote? What’s one of your superpowers? What’s one thing you’re afraid of? What’s one of your favorite accomplishments? How does giving continue to drive you? How do you balance your chiropractic business, podcast and travel? What is the first step for people to help them see there’s a light at the end of the tunnel? What do you find when you ask entrepreneurs about where they find their play and balance? How has tribe influenced your level of play? Why is it so imperative that we make time for play when we are so driven and successful? What’s another example of a hard-driving entrepreneur that you’ve had a major influence on to play more and how has it influenced their business? Who’s the perfect candidate for your new mastermind?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why Rob felt compelled to fund a baby’s heart surgery Why Rob is so passionate about traveling The balance between work and play Creating plans around what you want your life to look like Why the lives of high-level entrepreneurs are out of balance How Rob has influenced Chris and Lori’s views on play Getting out of our comfort zones What Rob’s “envelope goal activity” is all about Why masterminds work Rob’s new and different mastermind that mixes business and play And so much more…

 

Rob’s Thoughts…

 

“You are so much more than your business.”

 

“Once you change your physical environment, you come back refreshed with new ways of thinking.”

 

“There’s nothing spiritual about a bread line.”

 

--

I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success.

Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence. With home being a less-than-idyllic place, I clung to work and education as my ticket out of the bedroom I shared with three brothers, and the low-income reality of the life my parents couldn’t seem to escape.

The minute I was old enough, I threw myself into any job I could get my hands on, from washing cars at filling stations to washing hair in salons. In hindsight, the high-end neighborhood across the tracks (home to the doctors and lawyers) likely played an unconscious role in my decision to attend school to be a chiropractor.

Post high school graduation, I moved to Atlanta to complete my training and never looked back. Over the next decade I built a successful chiropractic practice, welcomed my first child, experienced the heartbreak of a challenging divorce, found healing and redemption when I met and married my wife, and read a book that changed my life and uncovered for me the world of lifestyle-entrepreneurship.

That book was The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris. Having spent my entire life thus far in relentless hustle mode, I was ready for the PLAY HARD side of the hard work coin. My wife and I wanted to escape the grind and travel the world, so we did. In 2006 we launched our travel/lifestyle Blog ‘Jetset Life’ and my all or nothing tendencies showed up for the party.

Predictably, poppin’ bottles on yachts grew old and I became aware that once again my life was out of balance and I felt disconnected and unfulfilled. THIS was the pivotal moment I decided to apply myself to mastering the counter-balance between the science of achievement and the art of fulfillment.

From THIS, the Work Hard, Play Hard podcast is born.

135: It's OK to Change Your Mind

Jun 21, 2018 13:19

Description:

Today’s topic can be a taboo topic to talk about because there are so many conflicting opinions out there as to why a person shouldn’t or can’t change their mind. While I completely agree that you can’t change your mind on a regular basis, I also believe that if you don’t like the path you’re on, it’s OK to change your mind and get off it. In fact, in this episode, I’m giving you “permission!”

 

There are a couple moments in my life when I did the unthinkable and changed my mind – and they weren’t small decisions at all. The first is my brief stint in college. I didn’t want to be there. I wanted to be out in the world and making money, but I also wanted to make my parents happy. So I stayed and sabotaged my grades by not engaging (Books? Who needs those?) and excessive partying. Needless to say, I was kicked out.

 

I share this story with you for two reasons…

Don’t take the roundabout way. Take the direct route. I was right! I made it to the outside world and made $75K in small-town WI – 20 years ago!

 

Another impactful decision I made was to leave the small investment company I helped found. While we were very successful, it just never felt “right.” Fortunately, I learned from the past and had a talk with my partner and bowed out of the business. FYI – this business has since done billions of dollars in investments. It goes to show you that it’s not always about the money – it’s about what makes you feel the best, too.

 

“A lot of money in itself isn’t necessarily worth it – fulfilling money in itself always is.”

 

Be prepared though. When you change your mind abruptly you’ll likely have to change your mindset around different things as well. With big decisions often come many mini decisions to help support them. Whether it’s your spending habits, living situation or lifestyle… nothing is off limits. But if it’s keeping you on your path, it’s worth it.

 

“It’s OK to change your mind just for YOU.”

 

When you follow your intuition and what feels right, good things are bound to come your way. Wherever you’re stuck – be it in a relationship, your career etc., it’s within your power to change it. How empowering is that?

 

It is my hope that this episode gives you permission to change your mind when the path doesn’t feel right. But once you do, make sure you follow suit and take ACTION.

Why it’s OK to change your mind Two life-changing moments when Chris changed his mind Following your intuition

133: Who Are You NOT To??

Jun 14, 2018 08:17

Description:

 

While on Lori’s book tour I’ve found myself in a state of awe watching Lori serve others over the past couple weeks – even when sick. Yep, she was sick and still showed up and rocked the stage to help others make lasting changes in their lives.

 

So it got me to thinking… With all these people in the room, including myself, I realized that ALL of us are capable of doing that based on the gifts we were given. We all have unique talents that we can use to create a solution for people in pain.

 

“You have a responsibility to get over yourself and do this.”

 

Set aside those nerves, your worry about what others will think etc., and start serving. Can you imagine what this world would look like if every person had a solution to someone else’s problem?

 

So I ask you, who are you not show up and serve your solution? Keep in mind that everything is an energy exchange. Many people use money as that energy source, but it’s not always the case.

 

“When you gift your solutions to other people’s problems you are gifting them energy.”

 

And by pushing out your energy/solution to more and more people, you have the potential to become wealthy. Don’t let others suffer when you have a solution they need.

 

So get out there, show up and serve others with your talents!

Chris’ revelation while on Lori’s book tour Serving others and creating a solution for their problems Why everything is an energy exchange

131: More People NEED YOU Than You Think

Jun 7, 2018 08:47

Description:

Today’s episode is all about flipping your perspective upside-down and leaving you empowered to find more customers to build your dream(s) and wealth. Get ready…

 

“There are more people out there who need you more than you need them.”

 

Here are two reasons why I love this statement so much.

 

There are plenty of people that need what you have to sell whether it’s a product, service, talent etc. You don’t need anyone, however, you can desire people to partake in what you have to offer. Saying you need something comes from a place of lack, and we know that we don’t operate from that place, right?

 

We all have individual talents and abilities and we need to share them. Sure, there may be someone else or another company who’s doing something similar, but they’re not YOU. So before you let your inner dialogue run away with phrases of lack (I’m not good enough; no one wants what I have to offer etc.), realize that there are 7 billion possible takers in this world… The odds are clearly in your favor.

 

“There is more than enough to go around.”

 

Isn’t that empowering to think that there’s just people who haven’t found you yet? But don’t get lazy… it’s still your no. 1 job to find these people. Do the work, outreach, marketing and whatever else you need to do to make it happen.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why people need you more than you think Why it’s your job to find these people Banishing the negative self-talk around your skill, product etc.

Was the personal development book your dad gave you at age 10 ahead of its time, and did it shape what you do today? What was the first business you started? What did network marketing teach you? How did you work through your scarcity issues in order to become as successful as you are today? Earlier you said that you help clients simplify their process of attaining clients…can you walk us through that? When you worked with T.

“It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, it just matters where you want to go today.”

 

“When you actually niche down, you attract more people.”

129: My Millionaire Mornings

May 31, 2018 12:27

Description:

 

I’m addressing another popular question today and that’s, “What do your mornings look like?” Let me start by saying that I think having rituals (whether they’re in the morning, mid-day or evening) are vitally important to a person’s success. These rituals are crucial to my and Lori’s self-care, and let’s be real, our sanity! Personally, mornings work the best for me.

 

“There is no easier time to take control of your day than in the first 30 minutes of the day.”

 

Think about it… the first 30 minutes of your day are the easiest to control. For me, it’s the first two hours, but that’s the time that Lori and I have carved out of our day as “protected time.” We put ourselves first so we can be the best versions of ourselves for others the rest of the day.

 

Here’s what the first part of the day looks like for me:

 

Wake up and immediately say my mantra: “I am happier, healthier, wealthier and more fit than I was yesterday.” 60-90 second prayer of what I’m grateful for. This list varies and is very child-like, but it really does set the tone of my thoughts for the day (hello, gratitude and possibility!). Pages before Swipes + COFFEE! OK, the coffee is optional, of course, but it’s mandatory in our house! ;-) This is my and Lori’s rule of reading a minimum of 10 pages before we hit our emails or social media. You never know what you will read or see that can send your day into a tailspin before it even gets started. This has been a game-changer! We used to do 20-30 minutes…or nothing, but recently realized that even 5-10 minutes is plenty to help visualize our day. Something is always better than nothing.

 

            “What matters is the consistency, not the amount of time.”

Moving my body. This is a staple of my success and every single day, there is at least one block of time where I’m going to get sweaty.

 

After we’re done working out, we get home, rinse off, and that marks the end of our “protected time.” We start our day. Final words...

 

“Dictate your day and your thoughts.”

 

Again, I realize that not everyone has the flexibility in their lives to commit to this same schedule, but aside from the workout, this is roughly a half hour of time that can help you start your day right. Don’t leave your day to chance. Wake up earlier, break it into multiple smaller chunks of time throughout the day – just do what you can to control your day.

128: From Welfare to Millionaire and the Tools That Got Him There with Christian Mickelsen

May 28, 2018 01:07:09

Description:

I’m so grateful for all the amazing people I’ve met through my mastermind with Lewis Howes, and today I’m fortunate enough to talk with another fellow masterminder, Christian Mickelsen.

I love diving deeper into his story as he tells us more about being on welfare as a child and how that lack of money made him feel then and how it affected his money mindset later on. Christian obviously overcame that lack mindset and it happened when he realized that he’s always been “rich” – just not in the traditional way. He now helps others work through their feelings and fears through his coaching and Abundance Unleased events.

This is one of the most empowering conversations I’ve had to date and I know that his insights will help propel you to the next level of abundance in your life and business. 

--

Question Highlights:

What’s your favorite quote? What’s one of your superpowers? Who is someone who’s changed your life? What’s one of your favorite accomplishments? What’s one regret you have? Can you tell us a little more about your upbringing? When did you start this journey to go from a poverty mindset to a master of abundance? What are the invisible forces that are holding people back? Is your event based on your book, Abundance Unleashed? How can people go to your event? When and where is it?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

The childhood belief Christian had that when you were poor people didn’t like you and when you were rich they did The shift that happened when Christian was able to release emotional ties to things (house, money etc.) How Christian incorporated vision boards into his life The top 4 things that drive Christian in life and business Why it’s important to eliminate the invisible forces that hold people back Working through fears and other feelings using the “Peace Process” and the “Instant Miracle” Extreme abundance beliefs Christian’s event “Abundance Unleased Live” Why all abundances (love, money, health and time) are related Why desires are here to make us grow And so much more…

 

Christian’s Thoughts…

 

“If we want more abundance in our lives, we need to get clear on what we want.”

 

“Being alive is rich.”

 

“The richest person in the world isn’t the person with the most money, it’s the person with the most gratitude.”

 

“If you want to be rich now, start appreciating what you have now.”

 

“Having big goals forces us to become bigger people.”

 

“Be happy with what you have – and go for more!”

127: A Controversial Lesson to Share

May 24, 2018 11:52

Description:

Today’s topic may be considered controversial by some and I may get judged for it. On the other hand, some may actually like it and have a breakthrough. Whichever reaction this episode sparks in you, I just want to clarify that my podcast is all about understanding how wealthy people think and giving you alternate ways of thinking when it comes to your views on money and how you want to embrace and pursue it. The following story is just one way to personify how wealthy individuals think and act vs. how the everyday person does.

 

So, Lori and I went surfing this past weekend to recharge. We drove down to the beach, unloaded our boards and proceeded to the parking ticket line. Because it was a weekend, you can imagine the line was long (about 11 people deep from our position). Quickly figuring out that it was taking each person around 5 minutes to get their ticket, I knew I didn’t want to waste nearly an hour to get ours. So, I walked over to the ticket attendant and asked what the fine would be if we didn’t have a ticket. He said $50. With a ticket price of $15, I made the decision to park the truck without a ticket and pay the extra $35.

 

Why? Simply put, the extra $35 wasn’t worth my time. Nor was it worth getting ticked off and potentially putting a damper on our day.

 

“Sometimes rules are just guidelines – depending on what your values are.”

 

Now I’m sure there were some people in line that saw me speak to the attendant and then park my car without a ticket, and thought, “what a rich asshole.” But the fact of the matter is, I was just making a decision based on the result of my time/money equation.

 

“Is it worth X amount of dollars for me to do Y?”

 

Time is the most valuable thing you have, so use it wisely. I would love to hear your thoughts on this lesson. Please share if you had a breakthrough or if you think I should have followed the rules. I love hearing all perspectives.

May 21, 2018 55:31

Description:

If you’ve never heard of today’s guest, Lori Kennedy, you’re going to want to start following her ASAP! Lori and I met in our mastermind with Lewis Howes, and from day one I’ve been astounded by all she’s accomplished so far.

As a single mother running multiple, wildly successful businesses, you’ll likely notice as I did throughout this episode just how impressive Lori’s level of resourcefulness, grit and intention is. From navigating a failed business and having kids to creating massive levels of success and giving equally, Lori admits to times of struggle, but she’s kept going anyway.

She is unapologetic about living an extraordinary life with her kids and takes great pride in helping others do the same through her programs and through her philanthropic efforts. In fact, in this episode alone, there are nuggets of knowledge that may just help you take your success to the next level. You don’t want to miss it!

 --

 

Question Highlights:

What’s your favorite quote? What’s one of your superpowers? What’s one thing you’re afraid of? What’s one regret you have? How did you go from the lowest of lows in your career to this person who saw a light at the end of the tunnel? When did you learn how to become successful? How did you learn to be comfortable with sales? When did you become this online sensation? If you don’t identify with being a business coach, what do you identify with? How do you make it work as a single mom? Why are you concerned about your kids growing up being spoiled and how are you raising them as an entrepreneurial parent so they turn out the way you’re hoping? What’s been one of your most successful charitable marketing campaigns and why do you do them? How did you get to the point where you were really efficient at being able to launch these courses and have them take off? What do you teach that brings people so much success?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why Lori felt her first nutrition business was a failure The levels of success Sales psychology Why tonality and your speaking rate is important with sales Why your price is irrelevant but also important at the same time Balancing family life with growing a business The dirty little secret of entrepreneurship How Lori teaches her kids the difference between normal and privileged Lori’s non-profit upbringing Lori’s philanthropic causes And so much more…

 

Lori’s Thoughts…

 

“Success is relative to where you are in your journey.”

 

“I don’t want to give energy to repetitive tasks.”

 

“I am relentless. I am unapologetic about making boatloads of money and living an extraordinary life.”

125: When is Enough, ENOUGH?

May 17, 2018 11:38

Description:

Have you ever heard the question, “When is enough, enough?” It’s a question I’ve gotten before and I totally understand why people ask it, but I’ll be honest…I don’t like it. The question instantly makes me feel judged even though it’s generally someone’s curiosity about what drives you. But the more people ask the question, the more you start to question yourself. Am I working too much?

 

Lori and I talked about this very question the other day on our 10-mile walk. Yes, it’s a long walk, but it’s a great way for us to connect and also hash out questions/issues like this one. So we determined that for many, the answer is no, it will never be enough. And it’s because that particular person is geared to keep going and it’s that drive that keeps them motivated.

 

“If we lost our ambition to create abundance, there’d be no extra abundance to share.”

 

I want you to think of all the good things being done in this world right now – a great majority of it is from people who have an abundance. Imagine if this “well” dried up? Where would the world be without the high performers/financial contributors of the world? It’s these people who were given the responsibility of creating an excess of abundance.

 

“Not everybody has been given the same-sized assignments in this life.”

  

This really is a beautiful thing. We were all given different wiring, different drivers and different purposes. If people don’t understand where you get your drive from, it’s not their fault – they’re simply not wired that way.

 

“Some people are called to organize and solve great causes – and some people are called to fund those missions.”

 

We all have our role. So maybe you’re not creating the amount of financial abundance as others, but what other type of abundance are you contributing that another couldn’t? I know personally, it will never be enough. Not until no one is starving, everyone receives an outstanding education, everyone is healthy, the world lives in peace and all natural resources are guaranteed to never run out.

 

So go out there, continue to be unapologetic about your drive and do great things.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

When enough is enough or why it’s not How we are all driven by different things Why people don’t seem to understand when people don’t feel like it’s “enough”

Description:

I’m certain that today’s guest, Mahsheed Barghisavar, and I were meant to cross paths so she could be a guest on the show.

123: Does Money Bring You Happiness

May 10, 2018 11:17

Description:

 

Today I’m talking about the question I probably get asked the most in regard to my podcast, and that’s, “does money bring you happiness?” This can be a complicated question, but I’ll try to break down the complicated (not-so-complicated) answer.

 

Money does indeed impact your happiness, but only to a certain degree. I’m a firm believer that money magnifies who you already are. If you’re a giving person, you’ll give more when you have more money. If you typically give less, you’re not likely to give any more when you do have more money. You with me?

 

“An unhappy person with bad habits simply becomes a wealthier person with bad habits.”

 

The money doesn’t change the person – it just changes their income. But here’s what money can do…

 

“Having wealth increases the number of opportunities that you will find happiness.”

 

On a scale of 1-10, there’s never going to be a 12 – more money doesn’t change that. But there can be multiple occurrences of a 10. Money ensures that you’ll have opportunities to have “10” experiences. Here’s what I mean… If you’re traveling and you stay at a Ritz or Four Seasons, you’re checked in right away, people know who you are, there’s more amenities, the hotel smells nice, etc. – it’s a “10” experience. Whereas if you stay at a Hampton Inn or Motel 6, you’ll likely have a nice stay, but the service isn’t the same – it’s typically just good. This applies to your car or family vacation, too. Money doesn’t guarantee happiness, but it does provide more chances to feel happy or achieve or maintain that “10” feeling.

 

So I ask you this, do you want a significantly higher number of peak moments (10s) and significantly lower amount of 1s and 2s? Then go out there and start chasing more wealth! 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why money magnifies who you already are How money impacts your happiness Why having money doesn’t guarantee happiness

122: Creating More WEALTH Through TRIBE with Lori Harder

May 7, 2018 48:29

Description:

I’m always excited to interview my wife, Lori Harder, but today on the eve of the official launch of her book, A Tribe Called Bliss, I’m ecstatic and so, so proud. As the subjective husband, of course I would say this book is a must-read, but because I never sugar-coat anything and am brutally honest sometimes (even with my wife), objectively I would say the exact same thing.

Today, I’m asking questions all about Lori’s new book – why she wrote it, who it’s for and how it can help you get your message out in the world with the help of a supportive tribe.

Thank you all so much for your support. If you buy the book and love it, it would mean so much to us if you would write a review, share and/or gift the book to someone else. Cannot wait to hear all the epic tribe-building stories!

What effect has tribe had on your earning power? Can people make more money if they create a tribe like you? What are you most excited about with your book release?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Lori’s book-writing journey – how and why she wrote A Tribe Called Bliss Why this book is for anyone in any type of relationship Becoming the person that will attract your desired tribe Clearing your stories How tribe takes you from transition to transcending in a fun and accelerated way Lori’s tribe/mastermind and how they’ve supported her (and vice versa) How tribe opens up a new dialogue between women Why you need more than just a partner to talk to How tribe and wealth go hand in hand Tribe and philanthropy How tribe pays you back – both financially and personally And so much more…

121: The Middle of Your Mindset Journey

May 3, 2018 08:38

Description:

 

Let me start this off by saying I love receiving direct messages on Instagram and hearing all about your money mindset journeys. It helps me keep a pulse on what my listeners are struggling with and also what they’re excelling at. So thank you in advance for keeping the messages coming.

 

So, the other day I received a message from a woman who’s had a great start with her money mindset journey, but she posed a great question… “What does the middle of the journey look like?” She’s done the work necessary in the beginning and is finally at a point where she accepts and wants to celebrate money…so now what? What should she be doing?

 

This is such a great question – and here’s the answer:

 

“The middle of your money mindset journey is doing the work to create it.”

 

Now that you have the right frame of mind, you’re able to attract and accept more wealth. It’s time to “do the work to create your wealth.” This means starting your business, figuring out that extra way to earn income or finding that side hustle that will help. Full honesty, the middle is the LONGEST part of the journey – but one of the most fun.

 

“You’re going to overestimate what you can do in a year, but you will underestimate what you can do in a few.”

 

So don’t get discouraged or frustrated if in a year you’re not where you want to be. Money is infinite and it will find you in time. Be kind to yourself, set a realistic timeline and focus on the small, consistent steps that will get you there. I cannot wait to see how you all are DOING the work. 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

What the middle of the money mindset journey looks like What you do in the middle of the journey Learning how to produce the income you want

120: Creating More Certainty in Your Money Mindset with David TS Wood

Apr 30, 2018 01:08:38

Description:

I am so inspired and proud to call today’s guest, David Wood, a friend and mentor. I’ve learned countless lessons from him over the years and today he shares even more with you.

Leaving home at age 15 with only $500 to his name, he spent many years backpacking and eventually landed in Canada. Throughout his journey, he learned early on to let go of the things that weren’t working and move on to the next. This practice (along with the gift of certainty) served him well and he now coaches thousands of other people who are looking to become more successful and make it an impact at the same time.

David is unapologetic about his success and life, and has a heart of gold – making it a point to give in some way, shape or form, on a daily basis. Tune in to hear all about his journey so far and also what he uncovers about me and my money mindset that I never even thought about!

             

--

 

Question Highlights:

What’s your favorite quote? What’s one of your superpowers? What’s one thing you’re afraid of? What’s one of your favorite accomplishments so far? How did you get so much compassion? How did you develop your coaching style? When did you make the shift from troubled backpacker to the success story you are now? What is something that someone can do to gain certainty? Do you have any rituals or routine that ensures correct thoughts in your mind? What is something you’re working through right now? When did you start to value money? What are the different money archetypes? Why do people have walls up around money?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

How David gives on a daily basis Accepting others beliefs and still keeping your own How David went from troubled backpacker to success story The importance of certainty, transparency and authenticity David’s daily rituals and routine How meditation changed David’s life How David working on his focus to amplify his impact How David is enjoying living in the moment David’s association with money growing up The four different money archetypes – hoarder, spender, money monk and avoider David's impactful moments of giving Why your money mindset is a learned behavior Why environment is so crucial when it comes to living your life unapologetically And so much more…

 

David’s Thoughts…

“When you consciously live in the unknown zone, it’s all about self-trust.”

 

“I never held onto things unless they were working.”

 

“Certainty is sexy.”

 

“The brain is not designed to make us rich and happy.”

 

“The only world you know is the one you’re in.”

 

“It wasn’t about being wealthy; it was about creating freedom.”

 

“It’s not about how much money we make, it’s about how that money works for us.”

 

“My wealth can only grow to the extent I grow myself.”

 

“Right time. Right vehicle. Right you.”

 

“The feeling of the need to apologize is because you want something that doesn’t match the environment you’re in.”

 

 

--

Crazy, rebel, misfit, troublemaker, are a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe David T.S. Wood, some others are, humanitarian, pinnacle leader, multi-millionaire, adventurer, master educator and goofball.

 

David is as comfortable leading a team to the 19,000-foot summit of Kilimanjaro, “The Roof of Africa,” as he is brainstorming with billionaires about changing the world.

 

He has trained over “one million” students from all corners of the world, and regardless of the venue, the language they speak or the duration of his program, his students ALWAYS describe him the same way: fearless, transparent, authentic, hilariously funny, effective and life changing.

 

His radical, non-apologetic approach is not for everyone; it’s definitely not for the faint of heart, or for the person who is not ready for change, the person who is content to sit on the sidelines and watch the game of life being played out in front of them by others who are tired of the status quo or playing by the rules.

 

David continues to work all over the world helping his students break through their fears, create freedom and design extraordinary lives.

 

He likes to say, however, that his greatest accomplishment is being the proud father of his two son’s Calvin and Ben.

119: Should You Act As If...or Not?

Apr 26, 2018 08:29

Description:

 

You’ve all heard the phrase “fake it ‘til you make it,” but lately there’s been a lot of talk that by doing so you’re being inauthentic. Why act like something we’re not and be who we really are in the moment? Well, I beg to differ and am a huge supporter of acting as if. Here’s my reasoning…

 

“When you act as if, you are literally taking the actions that the person you want to become is already taking.”

 

Acting as if is THE shortcut to getting you where you want to be. It also helps attract the right people and opportunities into your life and business. So yes, fake it ‘til you make and act as if because what you’re portraying is already in you, you’re just nudging it to come out a little sooner. It doesn’t change you at the core.

 

Tough-love truth, nobody wants to do business with someone who isn’t already acting as though their product is the biggest thing since sliced bread – unless YOU are acting as though it is. It’s not inauthentic, it’s actually more authentic because you truly believe in what you’re doing.

 

“Acting as if is just getting into the energy of the person who’s already there.”

 

It’s all about showing yourself (and often others) who you’re about to become – even though you’re not quite there yet. Because I believe that someday it’s that energy that will help you become who you were meant to become. And why not take that shortcut to get there just a little quicker?

 

What ways will you start “acting as if” this week to help propel your success forward?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

The idea of “fake it ‘til you make it” and whether or not it’s unauthentic Acting as if you’re already who you want to become Getting into the energy of the person who’s already there

118: Sales, Leadership, Confidence, and Cocaine with Zach Slobin

Apr 23, 2018 01:02:40

Description:

 

            I am stoked to finally be able to have my friend and fellow entrepreneur, Zach Slobin, on since he hit the 7-figure mark. He’s one of the most well-studied and philosophical people I know and I’ve had many a conversation with him about business and life – and now he gets to share his knowledge with you.

 

            While a huge proponent of networking now, initially Zach was against it after seeing his father’s experience with it. But after a few different failed attempts (and some epic low points that included drugs and being broke), he turned it around to become a go-to source for sales and marketing advice.

 

            I have a feeling this conversation will spark breakthroughs for a lot of listeners. With some invaluable truths and knowledge bombs on human potential, Zach helps us all see that we are all meant for something greater and to live a life of abundance.

Question Highlights:

What’s one of your superpowers? What is one regret you have? What’s one of your favorite accomplishments so far? What is a belief you’re questioning now? How did you get into the network marketing industry? How did you view money when your parents divorced? What do you see in network marketing that makes you so confident about it and what do you like so much about it? How do you help people get beyond fear-based thoughts? How did you cope with your low points? What makes you such an effective leader? Why are you so open and generous with your leadership? Why do people have such limiting beliefs around money mindset? What are you not taking action on but you soon you will be?

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

How Zach got into network marketing and why he is a huge proponent of it How Zach coped with his life’s lowest points of being broke and regular drug use Finding the gift in your struggles What makes Zach such an effective leader Why Zach’s such a believer in human potential Why we are all financially tied together The real reasons that people are scared to speak their message to others Why sales is so necessary Why money is just an energy Zach’s relationship with money Trusting the process vs. going with the flow And so much more…

 

Zach’s Thoughts…

 

“Money doesn’t make or break who you are as a person, but it can certainly impact the ways in which you experience life.”

 

“People tend to see a reflection in your big moves as a reflection of their small moves.”

 

“If you weren’t meant for something greater, you wouldn’t have survived that one thing that you thought would kill you.”

 

“The best networkers in the world are the best storytellers.”

 

“We are all financially tied together.”

 

“Sales is merely an elegant conversation to help people get to an end result from which they can benefit.”

 

“I will choose self-reflection over arrogance and ego every day of the week.”

 

“You can either own your limitations or you can own your life.”

Madly in love with his wife. Natural philosopher. And producer of his own life. 

These three things pretty much sum up Zach Slobin and his insatiable desire to knock, question the everyday rules and then bend life to create massive freedom, joy, and abundance.

After weathering life’s natural ups and downs, being lost in “finding his purpose,” and navigating through the inevitable entrepreneurial storms, he can tell you the stories of hitting several physical, emotional, spiritual and financial bottoms. 

He’s the athlete who almost went pro, but severe injuries kept him from his dream.

He’s the top guy who walked away from a good corporate job (and the money), because it was suffocating.

 

He’s the man who wouldn’t settle until he found his soulmate.

And he’s the entrepreneur who was so committed to excellence, he created financial freedom at just 34 years of age.

Grateful for the lessons all the losses have taught him, one thing is for sure–he can show you how you to play the game of life and win it.

As a Master Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Zach’s greatest thrill in life is showing people how to go from where they are to where they deserve to be by removing the BS lies they tell themselves, so they can be, do and have ANYTHING they desire.

117: Are You Doing This For Others?

Apr 19, 2018 08:23

Description:

 

Today’s podcast is about something really important, and whether you realize you’re doing it or not.

 

Are you lifting others up or are you accidentally holding them back?

 

Here’s what I mean… Let’s say you have a friend who just released a podcast. You’ve always told them you support them, but are truly showing it with your actions? Are you sharing their podcast on social media and to your others friends? Are you listening to the episodes and commenting? If you’re not doing those things, I’m not saying you’re intentionally withholding that type of support, but actions speak way louder than words in terms of lifting someone else up. It also tends to correlate how they lift you up when you need it.

 

“What you do on a regular basis is going to be done to you.”

 

Maybe you feel like certain people have “enough” supporters. (Hint: You can never have too many supporters.) The more action you take to support on the behalf of others, the more action they’ll make in return. It’s an amazing natural energy exchange!

 

“Lifting people up is always an action.”

 

So next time you have a friend who’s excited about something, releases a new product etc., go out of your way to support them through some action. And when you do, you’ll find that not only are you not holding them back, you’re propelling them toward their dreams. And in turn that helps you get closer to yours.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

How people unintentionally hold others back Why you can never have too many supporters Lifting people up in an actionable way

115: How TIPPING Can Make You Rich

Apr 12, 2018 13:48

Description:

 

What are your tipping habits? Do you give more depending on the level of service you get? What if I told you that your tipping habits actually have more to do with your abundance and wealth than you think?

 

I learned my tipping habits years ago from my parents who were very generous tippers – no matter what the level of service was. And this stuck with me up until this point and I know it’s only helped boost my success (and in general, my happiness).

 

“The way you tip someone is not a reflection of the job they’ve done, it’s a reflection of how you feel about money.”

 

Let’s not forget about all the happiness/time-saving after effects of tipping well. At restaurants, because I’m known for my generosity, I’m seated faster, get better service and tend to get a lot of extras that other people don’t get. When I valet park (at least once a week), my car is always parked close and I’m able to get my parked even when the lot is full. When I’m generous, I’m saving both money and time, which leaves me happier and with better energy.

 

So let’s try to shift your view of money (if it’s needed). If the service was bad, don’t use the lack of a tip as punishment. Instead, use it as an opportunity to show the particular person a different view of money. If they were having a really crappy day, wouldn’t an awesome tip help turn it around? YES! And what’s more, you’re sending a message to the universe that you have an abundance of money. Let’s take that one step further… when you tip well you’re actually boosting the economy. You pay more, but then the other person has more to spend, too.

 

No matter which way you look at it, you create a ripple effect when you tip well. What kind of example could you set by showing others how abundant you are with everyone? Who can you inspire? I would love to hear all about your generous tipping habits!

How your tipping habits can make you rich Where Chris learned his tipping habits from Chris’ tipping habits and why they promote abundance

113: MOMENTUM HACK! How To Get It and Keep It!

Apr 5, 2018 10:43

Description:

Today we’re talking about momentum – how to get it, keep it and get more of it.

 

“Momentum is the hardest thing to gain, the easiest thing to lose and the most valuable thing to have.”

 

This above statement says it all… So much so that I could safely leave it at that, but of course I’m going to elaborate a bit.

 

Momentum is something that everyone seeks in business. It’s that magical feeling when everything is going your way, the money and customers keep appearing – it’s explosive. And it honestly should be the goal for everyone when it comes to everything they’re doing – life and business. But it can be elusive and hard to hang on to.

 

See, momentum can be the savior or killer of your business or success. So many people never hit that momentum because they either give up right before it hits or they let it die after hitting it. It’s all about finding the delicate balance between finesse, effort, time investment and a little bit of miracle worked in.

 

“Momentum must be carefully cultivated in order to get it and then persistently preserved once you have it.”

 

So to help you create and keep that momentum I’ve come up with a few hacks to guide you:

 

To gain momentum, you must be consistent. Consistency is more valuable than effort. Think about it, a little every day will always beat a giant push and then nothing.

 

            “Momentum rewards the consistent.”

 

Have a plan. “You must do the right work at the right time in the right direction.” You can’t aimlessly wander your way into momentum. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and get a “map” to help guide you.

 

Once you get it, hold onto it.

“Do the same amount of work it took to get it that it does to keep it.”

Whatever it takes, steer your momentum in the right direction. If that means hiring more people or delegating – do it!

 

There is no substitute for the effects and rewards of momentum –  it rocks. It makes all your efforts worth it and so much more rewarding. But you must keep it rolling! And of course when that momentum is in high gear you’re success takes off with it.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why momentum is the most valuable thing to have Why momentum is the killer and saver of all businesses and success Three hacks to help you get momentum and keep it

112: How FAITH Can Help You SUCCEED with Joel Brown

Apr 2, 2018 49:59

Description:

Back when my podcast first launched, I interviewed entrepreneur and fellow podcaster, Joel Brown, but the sound quality was so bad that it never aired. That’s why today I’m even more excited that we were able to connect one more time to have, in my opinion, an even better conversation.

 

From a very young age, Joel possessed an empowering mindset. Practicing his entrepreneurial skills at the young age of 7, he has long followed the principle of making money work for you – and not the other way around. Now for the last seven years, Joel has been running his motivational website, Addicted2Success (and more recently his podcast), where he encourages others to find their 10-year vision and the values that align with it.

 

In this episode, we deep dive into what a 10-year vision entails, how to find and create one and how faith has amplified Joel’s business and life. You don’t want to miss this inspiring and insightful talk.  

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

What’s one of your superpowers? What is one regret you have? What’s one of your favorite books? Who is someone who has changed your life? Can you tell us where you were before you became an influencer? What is the “formula” behind success? Where did your core value of contribution come from? Why is the Bible your favorite book now and what has shifted inside of you? How does this return to faith affect what you teach today in business compared to what you taught a couple years ago? What can we learn from Jesus and the way He ran his “business” that applies to how we run businesses today? Can you be spiritual and still desire wealth? How can you help others find their vision?

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

How Joel got his start as an entrepreneur Making money work for you How Joel created Addicted2Success.com Joel’s formula for success The importance of contribution The relentless pursuit of truth Why Joel stepped back into his faith The four areas to Joel’s structure to test any world view (origin, meaning, morality and destiny) Spirituality and wealth Steps to figuring out your 10-year vision and tips to check in on it Why vision and values go hand in hand

And so much more…

 

Joel’s Thoughts…

 

“I never felt like there were ceilings, the sky was the limit.”

 

“Inspiration is way more powerful than motivation.”

 

“Just because it’s a personal preference doesn’t mean it’s true.”

 

“He didn’t come to be popular, He came to speak truth.”

 

“Your vision disciplines you. It chooses your friends for you. It teaches you what to say yes to and what to say no to. It gives you direction in your life.”

 

“I’m not big on the law of attraction; I’m big on the law of intention.”

 

“You have to be committed to mastery if you want to achieve a high level of success.”

111: The Difference Between You and I...it might not be what you think

Mar 29, 2018 07:43

Description:

 

I’m sure the title of this episode threw you off today because I am definitely not going to stand up here on a pedestal and tell you about all the things I’ve done, bought or experienced that make us different. Nope. Not even close… are you ready?

 

“The difference between you and I is what makes you so valuable.”

 

It’s true! Here’s the thing, what I don’t have I need to buy from someone. What I don’t know, I need to learn from someone… you get the idea. The difference between you and I is your value and it’s what you can, in turn, market or monetize.

 

We were all meant to have an impact on the world – whether you realize it or not. But so many people have a unique set of skills and they could leverage those skills to those who need it. It may feel like selling, but trust me, it’s really a gift. People pray every night for solutions to their problems. What if you have the answers, knowledge or skills they were looking for? Powerful, right?

 

So, if you’re not sure what skill you could possibly leverage, I want you to make a list of what comes naturally to you and brainstorm how you can use it. And please share what you come up with! I love hearing your thoughts.

 

You just may surprise yourself at the gift you’ve been keeping from the world.

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

The difference between us all Monetizing our differences Leveraging skills to solve people’s problems

The #1 Reason Businesses Don't Get Started (and What To Do!)

Mar 22, 2018 12:12

Description:

I cannot believe these days how many business ideas I hear on a daily basis. And I’m talking epic, game-changing ideas that could make millions of dollars. But here’s the thing, the people with the ideas aren’t bringing them to fruition. So today, we’re going to dive in and talk about the No. 1 reason why these businesses don’t get started.

 

And the No. 1 reason is…lack of follow-through. Yes, such a simple concept, especially when we have access to countless resources to make it happen. It’s not a saturated market (really for anything), there is a wealth of resources and mentors are everywhere. And let’s not forget – there is no shortage of great ideas. But there are multiple reasons why the follow-through isn’t happening.

 

“Virtual homeruns are stuck on someone’s shelf in their heads behind fears.”

 

Fear of failure, rejection, success, hard work etc. are all BS reasons that are given. It’s not that we’re too busy, it’s that we’re choosing the wrong things to focus on. Don’t get me wrong, I’m calling myself out on all this too. We’ve all done it at one time or another. We all have good intentions, but we must choose to take action.

 

“Business doesn’t reward good intentions, business rewards good actions – and lots of them.”

 

So how can you get your idea out there? Below are five steps that will get you started:

Seek a mentor. There are so many out there if you look. But if you can’t, books count, too! List out your exact five next steps in order to gain momentum on your idea. Be specific, but only tackle one at a time. Tell everyone about it – social media, word of mouth, skywriting – everyone! Line up the money for it. It’s usually less than you think you’ll need. Set deadlines. This is crucial to following through. Besides, you can’t hit something without aiming, right?

 

The beauty of these five steps is that anyone can do them – they just require action. What’s your next step to getting that epic idea out into the world? I can’t wait to see!

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why so many people haven’t started their businesses Why lack of follow-through is killing your multi-million-dollar business Five steps that will help you get your ideas out there

What’s one of your superpowers? What is one regret you have? Who is someone who has changed your life? What is your show Vintage Flip about? How different are you and your wife in person compared to how the show portrays you? What was your first surprise in the TV world? How do you handle criticism?

Jessie and Tina Rodriguez are the husband and wife duo starring in the HGTV series VINTAGE FLIP.

 

On VINTAGE FLIP, the couple set out to find, fix and flip vintage homes, restoring them back to their glory days while modernizing them to meet the needs of today. Each episode takes viewers from the initial process of scouting potential flips through ultimately putting the restored home on the market.

 

Jessie and Tina have long ran Cal American Homes — a successful full-service real estate sales, construction and design firm out of Claremont, CA. Cal American Homes was named one of the fastest-growing small businesses in America by Inc. Magazine in 2012; the same year Jessie was honored as one of the National Association of Realtors’ “30 Under 30.” Since 2008, Jessie has sold more than 2,000 homes and flipped more than 500 with no signs of slowing down.

107: Does Your Partner Determine Your Success

Mar 15, 2018 13:54

Description:

 

Today’s episode was spurred by a question I received via Instagram. And while I could have just answered on there, I figured it deserved a longer, more quality and REAL response.

 

The question was: “How do you think someone’s relationship could affect their success and how do you find a partner like this?”

 

Fair warning, my answers may lead to a huge wave of self-reflection. Firstly, in my opinion, a person’s romantic relationship massively affects success. How can we expect it not to when our partners share our finances, time and energy – among other things. And let’s not forget that these people are also the people we want to celebrate our successes with.

 

“If your partner is aligned with your goals, you’re going to have a higher chance of succeeding.”

 

They can have different goals and drivers, but they understand your ambition and likely have their own as well. On the flip side:

 

“The wrong partner can ruin your success.”

 

Now don’t get me wrong. Just because you’re with the “wrong” partner doesn’t mean they’re not a good person – it just means that they’re not in alignment with your goals and ambitions.

 

“People can be good people but the wrong partner at the same time.”

 

Just to give you an idea, the right partner provides:

You with ideas and supports yours The right style of accountability Objectivity in a way that you can receive it (and not take offense)

 

Let me stress here that I am only answering the question. You definitely don’t NEED a romantic partner to be successful. It could be a friend, business partner – or perhaps it’s just you.

 

When it comes to the second portion of the question about how you find a partner, I don’t think you can find one, but let me explain. When Lori and I met, we weren’t amazing partners…at least not right from the start. We were a couple of party kids from Wisconsin who liked to go out. But here’s the thing, we both were dreamers and had big goals for our future lives. And we both had equal levels of ambition and drive in each of our fields.

 

“We were always willing to try the other’s ideas on for size.”

 

We didn’t start out with perfect communication. There were fights and tears, but today we are committed to getting better as partners. We still have disagreements, but know how to objectively get through them. I hope that after listening to this episode that you’re able to also discover what is needed to help you (and perhaps your partner) elevate your life and dreams to the next level.

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Whether or not someone’s relationship affects their success Qualities of the “right” partner Why you DON’T need a romantic partner (or any partner) to find success

106: A Work-Life Balance Lesson from a 6 Year Old with Mel Abraham

Mar 12, 2018 47:19

Description:

 

There’s a lot of talk in the entrepreneurial world about maintaining a work-life balance, and today’s guest, Mel Abraham, talks about the defining moment that made him focus on what that term really meant. A CPA by education, he was pushed out of a firm partnership and did what anyone would do… He dug his heels in and worked countless hours to keep profits coming in so he could support him and his son. However, when his then 6-year-old, Jeremy, drew a picture of his dad surrounded by computers and phones while working, he knew something had to change.

 

Today it’s no longer about the myth of work-life balance – it’s about finding work-life harmony so his entrepreneurial dream can coexist with the responsibility and gift of being a father.

 

Mel has a way of breaking down and simplifying this complicated topic so we feel connected to those we care about and our businesses at the same time. He also drops some serious, game-changing knowledge on marketing and intellectual property that you don’t want to miss. 

-- 

Question Highlights:

What’s one of your superpowers? What is one regret you have? Who is someone who has changed your life? What is something generous you’ve done lately? After you realized your son only thought of you working, what did you do next? Why do people tend to abandon their why or their above the line stuff? What’s the common thread between you and your friends that makes you such success stories? What role has generosity played in your success? Why do you think some people have a hard time asking for help? What’s the most common cause of people getting stuck? What do you teach at your academy that’s so unique? How did you view money growing up?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

The moment that caused Mel to improve his work-life balance Time-blocking to do more reflecting, connecting and rejuvenating Connecting with people on a level where they feel they’re cared about Why it’s so important to protect your intellectual property Why Mel thinks indecision is dangerous Why there is no competition to your unique view (just competitors) Recognizing that everything we create has value The significance of the photo Mel included in his book And so much more…

Mel’s Thoughts…

 

“If my greatest success was raising my son as a single, full-time dad, then I did OK when I was here.”

 

“Work-life balance is a myth. It’s about getting work-life harmony.”

 

“My son didn’t need the profits, he needed the presence.”

 

“The more we can make people feel more connected, the more people feel cared about, the more we all grow and get better from it.”

 

“Give because it’s the right thing to do.”

 

“If you have the ability, you have the responsibility.”

 

“There’s an audience for every perspective.”

 

“Marketing doesn’t matter if your positioning is correct.”

 

“It wasn’t about the wealth, it was about the richness and peace of mind I could get.”

 

“I want to create experiences for the people I serve at the level I want.”

105: I Had A BREAKDOWN (True Story!)

Mar 8, 2018 15:10

Description:

If you’ve been listening to my podcast for a while now, you know that I try to be as transparent as humanly possible. While most only teach the rosy stuff, I feel it’s imperative to see what’s normal so you know if you’re on the right track. No one is perfect.

 

Case in point, earlier this week I had a breakdown. Yep, an all-out toddler breakdown, which included throwing my phone on the floor and blurting out whatever came to mind. Lori and I have both had a lot going on the past few months – Lori’s Bliss Project event, my Mastermind, other speaking events for Lori (where I helped her prepare), Lori’s book launch and our new Aligned course. And this doesn’t even include our normal everyday tasks.

 

So, we were wrapping up our two-day recharge at the Ritz in Laguna and about to head back into reality when I checked my email and received a message that just set me off. It instantly made me feel like I wasn’t living life on my terms. Enter tantrum mode. I can totally laugh at it now, but all the stress had built up and I had to release some of it.

 

And this is where tribe saved me… Lori was there to let me vent and talk it through. Then I also texted a couple of my super successful entrepreneur friends and they also reassured me that this was normal and gave me a couple stories of their own as well as some tips to get through it. We NEED people like this in our lives. Without them, you’ll bottle up all the motions and eventually explode (have a tantrum like I did).

 

“The pace doesn’t need to slow, but the releasing of the pressure does need to be more often.”

 

We need to put a focus on self-care and give ourselves a break now and then. It is perfectly normal to have breakdowns and feel tired.

 

“You’re always going to be tired from struggle or tired from making it happen – I choose the latter.”

 

Stay the course. Talk it out. Let off some steam with your go-to person. And take as good of care as possible of yourself. But keep up the pace so your dreams come true. You’ve got this and we’re all here to support you!

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why it’s important to be transparent and share your struggles How tribe saved Chris during his breakdown The importance of self-care

104: Is the Law of Attraction Real...with The Manifestation Babe Kathrin Zenkina

Mar 5, 2018 45:53

Description:

 

There are so many different thoughts on the Law of Attraction, so I am super excited for Manifestation Babe (and expert), Kathrin Zenkina, to talk about it today. With her initial interest in the Law of Attraction beginning at the young age of 16, she later realized just how much more was behind truly manifesting all the things you desire into your life.

 

Manifesting is far more than just thinking about something you want. Instead it’s about becoming the version of yourself who already has the thing you desire and then taking action to make it happen.

 

During our conversation, Kathrin breaks down the manifestation process even further and does it in such a clear and concise way that I know it will help you shift your practices (manifesting, abundance and attracting) immediately.

 

Kathrin has made it her mission to impact lives, influence others and share her knowledge through the online space. Be sure to check out the resources on this page to connect with her and all the tools she uses help others attract abundance.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

What’s one of your superpowers? Who is someone who has changed your life? What is something generous you’ve done lately? Tell us more about your brand and how you got into it. Is the Law of Attraction an energy magic trick or is it the result of someone wanting to do better? What’s more important – to think about the thing you want or to feel it? How does someone move from a scarcity mindset to one of abundance? Do you ever fall back into a “lack” mindset? How did you feel about money growing up? Where did the wildly generous part of your personality come from? What are you most excited about now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

How the book, “The Secret,” has influenced Kathrin’s business Adding physical action to the Law of Attraction Starting small with manifestation Kathrin’s manifestation process Why feeling takes priority over thinking How Kathrin gets out of a scarcity mindset with her “Gratitude Rampage” Being grateful for the small things Why it’s important to maintenance your abundant mindset The Law of Polarity to strengthen our “focus muscle” Why parents need to be mindful of the money mindset beliefs they’re showing their children And so much more…

 

Kathrin’s Thoughts…

 

“There’s the Law of Attraction, but there’s also the Law of Action.”

 

“We are drawn and attracted to certain things for a reason. We’re either meant to teach them or do something with them.”

 

“If you’re always looking for the big things in life to be grateful for, you’re always going to be waiting to be happy.”

 

“It’s a game of focus rather than a game of elimination.”

 

“Money is a tool to elevate your human experience.”

 

“The more you send out the flow of money, the more money that’s going to come back.”

 

“The more you have, the more you can give.”

103: A Ferrari, A Landscaper, and a Dent - Who Should Pay

Mar 1, 2018 14:24

Description:

Today, I want to tell you a story about a Ferrari, a landscaper and a dent. I normally wouldn’t call out the make of the car involved in this story, but the fact that the car is a Ferrari is of significance and represents all the hard work I’ve put in to own it.

 

This story was set into motion while getting my hair cut, like I do every two weeks. I park in the same small parking lot that has an attendant, but this time, the attendant had some bad news when I came back. Someone had backed into my car resulting in a dent and scratch.

 

Of course my first reaction to this was anger, but I quickly caught it and reframed. Amazingly, the attendant was super proactive and got the information of the man who’d backed into my car. He was a landscaper with an old broken-down truck. As soon as I got in my car, however, my struggle began. Who pays for this $2-3,000 repair? It wasn’t my fault, but this hard-working landscaper was likely not going to be in a position to pay it.

 

I called this man and he immediately took responsibility and wanted to pay for the damage. While speaking through broken English, he offered to pay cash. When I told him the amount though, he sighed. That was a lot of money to him, so he would instead need to make an insurance claim to pay for it.  

 

So here’s the dilemma. It was his fault, but did I really want to put this burden to pay when it would put such a strain on him? And furthermore, if he did indeed file a claim, it would cost him at least $500-$1,000 for his deductible (and a premium increase) and cost me a ton more of my time and energy until the insurance company figured it out. So I made the decision to pay the repair cost because I can, and because I can do it so much easier than he can.

 

“Too many people are chasing pennies instead of using that time to create dollars.”

 

I don’t want to be one of those people. I don’t want to feel bad energy or waste any of my time while I can be doing other more, high-energy, money-making things.

 

“Do what’s right, not righteous.”

 

Maybe it’s not always easy, but it’s karmically better for you.

 

“I am in this position because I’ve always made decisions like this – even when I couldn’t do so as easily.”

 

And when you consistently create a pattern of decisions like this, you will experience wealth – in all forms – far beyond your wildest dreams. When have you given up the opportunity to be righteous and done what’s right instead? 

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Retraining your mind to have an attitude of abundance. How bad energy costs you time and money Different forms of philanthropy

102: The Formula to Losing 40 lbs and Gaining Millions of Dollars with Drew Canole

Feb 26, 2018 48:44

Description:

            I’ve gotten to know today’s guest, Drew Canole, super well over this past year, and wow, has it been life-changing. A fellow Midwesterner, he was born and raised in Michigan but went after other opportunities and more growth in Florida. While he did find success in the real estate/mortgage arena, the weight piled on and so did his unhappiness once he realized he was escaping his emotions and certainly not living in his highest purpose.

 

            Shortly after, Drew had an eye-opening dream where he died and only five or six people showed up to his funeral. It was then that he made the decision to make a radical shift and do something that changed people’s lives. He wanted to inspire people in big way – and leave a legacy that’s remembered for decades to come.

 

            To promote this change, Drew moved to California to surround himself with new people and a new awareness. He documented his weight loss journey in an attempt to help and influence other people in both health and mindset. Fast forward to today and Drew still documents his journey and helps millions of followers on FitLife TV on YouTube, and through Organifi, the supplemental company he founded just three years ago.

 

            Drew is one of the most giving people I know – in all areas of life. He’s made it his mission to help as many people as he can while also spreading massive amounts of joy, abundance and love. With a mission like this, Drew is making such an impact and has inspired me yet again to do more and I hope his message pushes you to do the same.  

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

What’s one of your superpowers? Who is someone who has changed your life? What is one of your biggest accomplishments? How did you go from Midwest, born and raised, to California living and thriving in just a few years? What’s the key to building such large followings and a large company? How did you develop a unique wide range in life? How do you reconcile liking nice things and feeling spiritual at the same time? How did you feel about money growing up? How do you feel about money now? What do you think holds people back from accomplishing the success or wealth they really want? What do you say to those people who are too scared or holding themselves back from participating in the “woo-woo” stuff?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Drew’s journey from Michigan to Florida to California Giving up who you are now to become something greater How Drew came to help others with health and mindset Why you should track your joy – day in and day out Drew’s four-step process to get more done in 30 days Why we Drew chases impact, not money Paying attention to limiting beliefs and stories And so much more…

 

Drew’s Thoughts…

 

“Are you willing to give up who you are now to become something greater?”

 

“It doesn’t really matter what you do if you’re surrounded by people you love.”

 

“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.” – Lewis Caroll

 

“Just start – silence the mind.”

 

“If I can impact people, the money will come.”

 

“The more money you acquire, the more ability you have to help people and inspire change.”

101: PROOF - If You Have MORE, Someone Else Does NOT Have Less

Feb 22, 2018 18:44

Description:

There are many things that can hold you back from accumulating wealth, but today, I want to cross one of those off the list. I’m going to prove that if you have more, it doesn’t mean that someone else has less.

 

You know that saying, “your slice of the pie?” It makes it sound like there’s only so much pie and if someone gets a bigger piece, another gets less. Ok, if we’re talking literal pie, yes, this is true. But from a wealth perspective, wealth is NOT a pie. It’s a living, growing, shrinking and expanding organism. So comparing wealth to a pie doesn’t work. And if you think it does, it’s only going to hold you back from accumulating wealth because you’ll think someone else is getting hurt if you do.

 

“Wealth accumulation is not a zero-sum game.”

 

Hundreds of years ago, land was the biggest measurement of wealth. The more land you had meant that someone else had less or you bought it from them. But today, we’re so fortunate because there are so many different ways to accumulate wealth.

 

“Wealth is always being created.”

 

Here are a few examples of what I mean:

There is always something to sell. Products, ideas, services etc. – you name it. Even your salary job. You’re selling your time/skillset for money and in return, you create something for your boss to then sell and make money. Events and eCourses. Let’s say Susy goes to an event or buys an eCourse for $500. Susy isn’t poorer, she’s actually gained value and could maybe further turn that value into $100K because of what she learned.

 

“Value is nothing more than an amount that we all agree it to be.”

 

At the end of the day, just know that there is an endless amount wealth available and your ability to create wealth determines how wealthy you’ll be. You are entitled to as much as you learn to create – without taking anything away from anyone else.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Different ways to accumulate and measure wealth How wealth is always being created Supply and demand and how it affects wealth

100: This Powerhouse Paid Off $50K and Donated $120K in Just Two Years with Adrienne Dorison

Feb 19, 2018 46:54

Description:

I think a lot of you are going to relate today with my guest and entrepreneur, Adrienne Dorison. Like many, she found herself in a corporate job that was “OK" and paid the bills, but she ended up starting a business/side hustle because she needed to create space in her life for something that she loved. Initially her goal wasn’t to replace her corporate income, but when the corporation had a problem with her side hustle, she was nudged into it.

At the time, Adrienne was trying to pay off $50K in student loan debt, however without a full-time job, she worried that it would take her forever to pay if off. So, rather than allow her boyfriend (now husband) to pay off her debt for her, she made an aggressive plan to pay it off herself – and give back at the same time.

Adrienne wanted to balance out the negative feelings of shame that came with debt or bad credit and instead made it a feel-good experience. Today, giving is built into her business’s structure – both monetarily and by sharing her experiences. Tune in to hear more about Adrienne’s driven and giving spirit. 

--

Question Highlights:

Who is Adrienne Dorison? What was your transition like from corporate America to entrepreneurship? Why did your corporate job have a problem with your blog? Why do we stay in bad jobs for so long? What was one of your big “crash and burns?” What is it like to be the bread-winner of your family? What’s your advice to couples who wake up in this position? How do you make it work? How did you work giving into your business’s DNA? Where does your generosity come from?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Adrienne’s transition from corporate America to entrepreneurship How shame around debt/bad credit led her to donate How she paid of $50K in debt in 6 months (while still giving) How Adrienne made paying off her debt a feel-food experience Spousal communication and balancing feminine and masculine dynamics How Adrienne likes to take action from the place of how she wants to feel Why it’s so important to share what your business gives And so much more…

 

Adrienne’s Thoughts…

 

“I needed to create space in my life for something that I loved.”

 

“Giving grounds you in what you have.”

 

“I want to make a lot of money so I can give a lot away.”

 

“When you earn more, you can give more.”

99: The MISSING LINK to YOUR SUCCESS

Feb 15, 2018 13:22

Description:

This isn’t the first time I’ve discussed the one thing that can truly unlock what you’re seeking – and that’s giving.

 

“Giving is the absolute secret to unlock every single thing you want.”

 

Wherever you are or where you want to be, giving more will ultimately get you there. But what if you’re already giving? My advice? Give more. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not just giving money. Below I’ve listed six areas in which you could possibly give more to.

 

EFFORT: Perhaps you think you already work hard – and I have no doubt that you do. However, what if some of your current efforts are misguided? What if you focused more on income-producing activities and put more work in your business?

 

TIME: This encompasses all areas. Could you spend more time with your business partner? Perhaps you could spend more time looking outside of your business or studying/bettering your craft?

 

MONEY: I often hear that people are stuck on a plateau. If you’re pinching pennies (which isn’t a bad thing), it may be time to give more money to your business. Add that new team member, do more research or take out more ads. Being cheap is smart, but not if it’s stopping your business in its tracks. So get creative and ask for a loan, an investor etc.

 

RESOURCEFULNESS: No money? No problem. As I just mentioned, get creative. Find an intern who will work for free or next to nothing. Trade favors. Resourcefulness fixes everything.

 

RESEARCH/PLANNING: The technology and business worlds change rapidly. It’s in your business’s best interest to keep up on your research and give more time to planning ahead as much as possible.

 

LOVE: Give more love to yourself, your business, your co-workers or business partners. Give love outside of your business – without expectations. Love always comes full circle, and you never know who will be able to help you down the road.

 

Which area(s) could you give more to?

 

No matter the answer, giving is the missing piece when it comes to achieving the level of success you want to have. Now, who’s ready to commit to that next level of giving?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

The missing link to your success – giving How to give more to get more The six areas where you could possibly give more

98: No Arms, No Legs, No EXCUSES, with Kyle Maynard

Feb 12, 2018 01:00:36

Description:

My history with today’s guest, Kyle Maynard, goes back a decade or so to my banking days when I heard him speak at an event and left completely inspired. Imagine my surprise when I met him again two years ago and got a chance to talk with him at Lewis Howes’ Summit of Greatness event. I’m so glad that we were able to get him on For the Love of Money and share more with all of you!

 

Many of you have likely heard about Kyle and his epic story. But for those who don’t know, he was born with a rare condition called congenital amputation that left him with arms that end at the elbows and legs that end around his knees. He credits his parents for helping him navigate life with this challenge (without prosthetics) and for encouraging him that anything was possible. And wow, did he ever prove that there were no limits – so much so that others felt his “disadvantage” was actually an unfair advantage!

 

In Kyle’s younger years, he found success in both wrestling and football, but most recently he became famous for becoming the first man to climb (bearcrawl) Mount Kilimanjaro. Today he continues to thrive on physical challenges, however he’s added an extra focus on photography and film.

 

Kyle shares his incredible story and “No Excuses” philosophy in the hope that it inspires others to banish their excuses and make the world a better place. My hope is that his story inspires you to do the same.  

--

 

Question Highlights:

What was it like to climb Mount Kilimanjaro? Is filming/photography your new rush? How many times a year do you speak? What does your hustle look like now? What common threads do you see between those who are successful and those who are not? Where are you going to take this newfound love for photography and film? What’s one of the best business decisions you’ve ever made? How can people get past their BS excuses? Now that you’ve raised your speaking fees, do you see a difference in the quality of events that you speak at? What cause(s) do you care the most about and what causes should we be more aware of?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Kyle’s childhood journey growing up with congenital amputation Using doubts to fuel you to be and do better Kyle’s success in athletics (wrestling, football, crossfit) Kyle’s Mount Kilimanjaro climb (bearcrawl) The importance of quality relationships (the “beer test”) What it means to do the “deep work” The value in creating a structure for decision-making Learning from your excuses How and why Kyle raised his speaking fees And so much more…

 

Kyle’s Thoughts…

 

“The map is not the territory.” – Alfred Korzybski

 

“Focus on the deep work.”

 

“Create a structure so you don’t have to make the same decisions all the time.”

 

“There is no end to our excuses.”

 

“No excuses give you the freedom to try.”

 

--

97: Should You Feel Guilty for Having "Wealth?"

Feb 8, 2018 07:19

Description:

 

Should you feel guilty for having more than others?

This isn’t a new question, but it came up on my recent trip to Guatemala with Pencils of Promise, an organization that helps villages provide sustainable schools, clean water and sanitation. These are very remote and poor villages that lack many of the modern “comforts” we have here in the U.S. 

So when this question came up again, it got my wheels turning. Should I feel guilty? My answer was no, but I quickly let my thoughts put doubt in my head. Should I feel bad about this? Once I was able to reframe these thoughts I stuck to my original answer and here’s why. 

Without excess wealth or having more than others, we can’t help anyone else. We need those extra resources, connections etc. to do great things. The only time you should feel guilty is if you have excess wealth and you’re not doing anything to create more of it. Or of course, if you’re playing small… that doesn’t serve anybody.

We’ve been gifted multiple opportunities so we can help others. My trip to Guatemala was proof of that. That’s why I came home more excited and even more inspired to do more.

“Home represents opportunity.”

I plan to use the excess leverage and opportunities I have to create more positive change in the world. And I can’t wait for you to do the same and live up to your fullest potential, too.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Whether or not you should feel guilty about having more than another The infiniteness of money and wealth Using excess leverage to create change

96: How To SUCCEED No Matter WHERE YOU BEGIN with Sean O'Shea

Feb 5, 2018 45:16

Description:

World-renowned dog trainer, teacher and author, Sean O’Shea, struggled for the first 40 years of his life. Between a dysfunctional family, learning disabilities and a directionless, toxic music career, he knew this lifestyle wasn’t working for him. While this often is the point where a person gives up, thinking they’ve screwed things up forever, Sean did the opposite.

 

Knowing he didn’t have the luxury of time, he dived head-first into self-development and hit it hard – absorbing everything he could to bring new skillsets on board (often 4.5 hours of reading and watching videos a day). And it all was spurred by the mind shift happened after he adopted a couple of dogs in his 30s.

 

At the time, knowing nothing about how to raise dogs, he admittedly messed them up. But upon realizing this, he made a promise that he would help them get in a better place – and he did. Shortly after Sean transformed his dogs’ behavior, people began to notice. Starting out with a dog-walking service that became wildly popular, his business grew and shifted into The Good Dog Training. (So grateful as he trained my brother’s dog, Ozzie, and turned him into a gentleman of a dog.)

 

Sean’s comeback story is incredible and he wants everyone to know that you don’t have to be perfect to be successful. You can come from any background, screw up colossally and still find success – if you do the work. Be sure to listen in to the full episode to find out how he turned his profound struggle into a successful life and business – and now a new book! There are countless valuable takeaways from our conversation!

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

Describe one of your lowest moments. What role has self-development specifically played in your success? What do you mean when you say that “you don’t have to come to the table with the skills, you just have to want the skills really, really bad?” Tell us about your book. Who’s your book for? What’s the best lesson in your book? Where did your generosity come from?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

How Sean overcame profound struggles to become the success he is today How adopting dogs made a pivotal change in his life What role self-development has played in Sean’s life The power of influence and the importance of surrounding yourself continuously with great influencers The influence Jim Rohn has had on Sean’s success Creating resources to do more good Importance of finding what resonates with you His new book, Closing the Gap and the fact that he’s donating all of its proceeds Learning skills and becoming the master of them Where Sean’s generosity comes from And so much more…

 

Sean’s Thoughts…

 

“You don’t have to come to the table with the skills; you just have to want the skills really, really bad.”

 

“You start from influences that plant the thoughts and then you can start to build everything else.”

 

“Drive will reveal the path.”

 

“Being the equal of what you want is critical.”

 

“You don’t have to be filthy rich to give back.”

 

“Money combined with contribution is where the magic is.”

 

“Money facilitates what you want to do.”

95: Four BUSINESS LESSONS from my Mastermind Group

Feb 1, 2018 07:20

Description:

This past weekend, I hosted my first business mastermind and honestly, I’m still on a high from the epic breakthroughs and experiences that were had. There are 24 people in this year’s group, but a mastermind can be as small as three to five people too. As a refresher, a mastermind is when a group of people, who have similar goals, come together to lift each other’s businesses up so there are several people working on a business – not just one person.

 

I observed so many similar trends within the group and instantly knew I wanted to share a few with you.

 

Most people know how to get where they want to go, but they’re holding themselves back because of fears and stories they tell themselves that aren’t true. The takeaway?

 

“You’re closer than you think to your goals – you just have a mental block.”

 

The power of collaboration. I was blown away at the breakthroughs that were happening left and right. And I credit it to the group brainstorming and talking about things as a collective. Just think what you could come up with in a group of like-minded people!

 

It’s not all business– it’s a mix of business and pleasure. I noticed that the most breakthroughs happened when people let loose at the restaurant. There was a noticeable difference when people were more open and decided to have more fun with it.

 

There’s always a way to hit your goals. When you’re around a group of new people who are able to be completely objective, they’re able to see the things you can’t or aren’t willing to see. Masterminds are way to remind that you don’t have to do it alone – someone can help you! And this isn’t just limited to masterminds. Whatever situation you’re in, and I cannot stress this enough, ASK for help!

 

Let me know if you agree with any of the above or if you plan to incorporate parts of them into your life and business. They may further boost you onto the fast track for success.

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

What a mastermind is Mixing business and pleasure The power of collaboration

94: Becoming Extremely Wealthy with Grant Cardone

Jan 29, 2018 40:02

Description:

 

I’m so honored to have the one and only, Grant Cardone, as a guest today as he’s inspired me for the last 20 years of my life. Sounds crazy, but after dropping out of college and getting into the car business, I was selected to hear him speak at an event about sales. It was game-changing for me because it made me realize I wanted to do more than sell cars – I wanted to be the person on the stage. Fast forward to the present and I’ve had the privilege of speaking on stage and have Grant to thank for it.

 

As an international sales expert and NY Times Best-Selling Author, I’m in awe of Grant’s no-nonsense approach to both life and wealth/business. Whether he succeeds or makes mistakes, he equally owns both 100%. But Grant wasn’t always a wealthy sales mastermind. From his late teens to early 20s, he was self-admittedly selfish. After a brief stint in rehab, he made the choice do something about the disappointment he felt and turned it around.

 

Since that time, Grant never settles for what he has and strives to do better and better so he can be around 200-300 years after he’s gone through his books and courses. His goal and passion are to help others grow their wealth and make their lives easier. With the packed house his upcoming 10X Growth Conference promises, I’d say he’s doing just that.  

 

Don’t miss this inspirational, but brutally honest conversation with Grant. I can almost guarantee that it will make you want to do more when it comes to taking action to increase your wealth – and your giving.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

You don’t always have to like what you’re doing, but it can still be good for you and put you on your path – can you expand on this idea? Where does your drive to be great in all areas come from? Do you still feel disappointed in yourself after all you’ve accomplished? Why should each of us become as wealthy as possible? Why do people struggle with having a strong money mindset? What’s the best way to make money today and how does it relate to Cardone Capital? When did you decide to stop letting other people’s opinions matter? Who do you study? Who motivates you? Is it easier to invest in someone else’s fund or would you rather do it on your own and make mistakes? What will people learn at the 10X Growth Conference? Who is the event for? How has generosity impacted your success?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Why more people should be dissatisfied with their lives Getting great in the space you’re in until you can movie into the next level What it means to have a scarcity mindset Why so many are mis-educated about money The importance of a second or third stream of income When Grant decided to value his time more than his money How and why we need to continue the cycle of action and giving And so much more…

 

Grant’s Thoughts…

 

“I wanna be the guy on stage and working for the world.”

 

“We’re never playing above our game.”

 

“If you don’t love money, you’re never going to get it.”

 

“I’m certain about my mistakes and I’m certain about my successes.”

 

“We should be inspired by people’s successes – not hate on them.”

93: How to Handle ENTREPRENEURIAL STRESS

Jan 25, 2018 08:48

Description:

This is a huge topic that plagues everybody – or at least it seems to anyway. Whether we’re stressed about our business not having any traction or we’re stressed about all the work that comes with a business with traction, stress doesn’t discriminate. That’s just real life, right? Not so fast…

 

While I’m not denying the existence of all stress, I do question how much of the stress we have is really B.S. I venture to say that roughly 90 percent of the stress we have is literally made up in our heads. What if we reframe this idea?

 

“You’re not stressed, you’re blessed.”

 

Would you rather have the alternative to your stress? Typically, that answer would be no. Think about it, a broke and struggling person would love the stress that your success brings upon them.

 

When entrepreneurs are stressed it’s because we chose that stress. We had a series of choices that we said yes or no to. We have the control and power to either change it or appreciate it. I choose the latter.

 

“We’re not actually busy, we’re busy in our head.”

 

How often do you get stressed thinking about all of your future appointments or project deadlines? I know it’s tough, but STOP living in the future! Get present. The things you worry about in your head will likely never happen. Seriously, 95% of the stuff we stress about NEVER happens.

 

One more tip, make sure you’re not mislabeling your stress or nervousness as excitement. They’re very similar feelings, so when you catch yourself doing that, quickly reframe it. The sooner you learn to stop creating fake stress, the better you can manage your business and life.

 

Make sure you’re leaning into the stress, don’t fear it. I firmly believe that “a little stress is a prerequisite for success.” Just remember to keep stepping through the stress, not back.  

 

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Reframing the “stress” in your life Differentiating between stress and excitement How being present can help you avoid feelings of stress

92: The Bachelor's Ben Higgins Teachus Us GENEROSITY

Jan 22, 2018 51:17

Description:

 

Most widely known for his roles on ABC’s The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, you will soon realize that my guest, Ben Higgins, is more than just a reality TV star. After his time on The Bachelor, he used that platform to help others and create a dynamic business model in the process. And it all began with his friend’s non-profit organization called Humanity and Hope United.

 

Believing whole-heartedly in this organization’s mission to assist underserved villages in remote parts of Honduras, Ben wanted to ensure the longevity and success of it. And that’s when they got the idea to create a for profit business with the purpose of supporting a non-profit. This business model is pure genius and he predicts that it’s only the beginning for other future businesses.

 

I cannot wait for you to hear Ben’s story and how he seems to embody all things generosity. It’s no surprise that relating, connecting and being generous with people are so important to him. From his business model to his blog and podcast, Ben gets super transparent in an attempt to let people know that at the heart we’re all the same and that we all have a passion to share with the world.

 

Don’t be surprised if this episode blows your mind and likely gives you a nudge to give back more, too.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

What was life like before The Bachelor vs. after? Growing up, what did you think you’d be doing as an adult? Was your new-found fame easier to deal with because of your desire to work with people? How did you learn to cope with trolls and negative comments that came with your fame? Do you feel you have a responsibility to use your influence for good or is it a choice? How does your podcast give back? How have your parents dealt with your fam? What makes for a successful blog? What is one of the toughest parts of running a non-profit business?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

The unexpected and difficult growth that happened during Ben’s time on The Bachelor Dealing with sudden fame The power in knowing that you can’t please everyone Why it’s important to always be aware of what your intentions are The common desire that everyone wants to be loved and not be alone The importance of authenticity in a blog How Ben used The Bachelor platform to create Generous International How Generous International was founded Why Generous Coffee can compete with big brands like Starbucks Why future businesses will need a social cause tied to them How Generous International works with Humanity and Hope United to develop communities and make sustainable change in the world Why the non-profit world needs your passion And so much more…

 

Ben’s Thoughts…

 

“Stay open to the criticism, but also be confident enough to know that you may have to reject it sometimes because you know what your intentions are.”

 

“You can live life simple. It doesn’t have to be hard.”

 

“When much is given, much is expected.”

 

“Profit is sacred.”

 

“The more profit we make, the bigger the long-term impact.”

 

“From start to finish, we want to be generous.”

 

“When we are loving on others and building relationships, life makes more sense.”

 

“No one should be apologetic about wanting to live a great story.”

91: Your "RICH" Will Be Different

Jan 18, 2018 06:31

Description:

My Two Cents today is based on a conversation I had the other day with a buddy of mine. To sum it up, we discussed how when spending time with a friend (someone who has crushed it in business), there are times when you walk away from it questioning their actions or how they treated others, ultimately fearing that you too will become a certain way when you reach their level.

 

It’s only natural to reflect on their behavior, but I’m here to tell you that you need to stop.

 

“Your rich is not their rich.”

 

Money doesn’t change people, but it can magnify who you already are. For example, if you’re kind to everybody, treat others with respect and genuinely have a genuine desire to help people, when you become more successful, you’re going to do more of that. The same thing is true if you feel entitled, disrespect others and only care about yourself – it will magnify that too.

 

Don’t worry about what’s coming up next – no matter where you are. Stay true to who YOU are.

 

“Root down in who you really are and who you’ve been up that point, and live in your truth.”

 

If you’re living in your truth you can get out and pursue wealth without fear of what it will look like to others. And as I eluded to above, if you’re not caught up in the wrong crowd and you don’t have hurtful thoughts now, you’re not likely to have a problem down the road when success is knocking at your door.

 

But I get that fears will naturally arise. And when they do, I want you to stop, acknowledge it and reframe it. Remind yourself (picture it too) how you’ll feel and what you’ll do when that next level comes.

 

“It’s not the destination that changes you, it’s the person taking the journey to the destination that can cause that.”

 

If you love you, with more wealth and success, you’ll only love yourself more. So get out there without fear and do great things!

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

That money only magnifies who you are now Why it’s important to get rooted in your truth How to confront and reframe fears about making more money

89: Three Important Lessons I've Learned from These Billionaires

Jan 11, 2018 09:31

Description:

Some of you may know that some of my favorite books are actual biographies – most specifically of billionaires. I’ve learned so much by reading about their actual experiences – the wins and fails – and today, I’m going to share my top three lessons I’ve learned from billionaires Warren Buffett, Elon Musk and Richard Branson.

 

Lesson No. 1 – In order to get some of your time back and get more done, give yourself permission to say NO to more things.

 

“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that the really successful people say no to almost everything.”  – Warren Buffett

 

Time is our most valuable asset and it should be invested in the same fashion.

 

“Invest your time in all the right places.”

 

By saying no, you’re gaining back both time and energy, and you’re able to get laser focused on the areas that need it. Even if it’s gaining back one hour a day, that’s getting back just over 15 days in one year! Just think of what you could do with that time with your family and friends.

 

Lesson No. 2 – Go all in!

 

“No matter what you’ve done in the past, you’ve got to check your ego at the door and be willing to ask for help.”

 

Elon Musk is the perfect example of this as he is so passionate about his dreams/businesses. So much so that he nearly went broke multiple times trying to achieve them. Needless to say, he now has billion-dollar companies and is himself a billionaire.

 

Lesson No. 3 – Make an impact while living a fun and well-rounded life.

 

“A life worth living is a life full of well-rounded memories and impact.”

 

Make it a rich, fulfilling and meaningful life without apologizing. Don’t make it a life about just your family… or just your business… or just your adventures… Do it all, because how you do anything is how you do everything.

 

These are three of the lessons I tap into when focusing on how I want to live my life. And no matter how you define success, I’m guessing these three billionaires will pass the test. After all, in my opinion they’re all living my motto: “When good people make good money, they do great things.”

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How billionaires Warren Buffet, Elon Musk and Richard Branson have influenced my life and businesses Why saying no to more things is so valuable The importance of going all in Why we should strive to live a well-rounded life with impact

88: Our Plans for Success in 2018 with Lori Harder

Jan 8, 2018 01:00:18

Description:

My wife, Lori, is back for another dual podcast! Both of us have been lit over here since ringing in the New Year and we wanted to share some of our thoughts out loud regarding some of the things we’ve been working on going into 2018 (hint: new eCourse coming in the next couple months).

 

First and foremost, we’ve both done a lot of reassessing and have gotten really clear and laser-focused on what we want to see and do this year – individually and as a couple – both in business and in play. Find out what we’re working to get rid of and what we’re working to align ourselves with more – some things may surprise you! We’re putting it all about there in this super candid conversation – you don’t want to miss it!

--

 

Question Highlights:

What was something you loved that we did on New Year’s Eve? What is something you do to get clear on your goals/intentions? What are your mindset blocks? What is one of the rituals that you’re committed to? What are your favorite ways to find tribe? How do you find the energy to keep up with your habits/rituals and how do you stay in the energy to keep doing it? Why should people be unapologetic about their pursuit of wealth and success?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

Our rituals, how we set goals and how we figure out what the next step will be Getting clear Finding and following the things that light you up Releasing judgment Aligning beliefs with intentions Preventing negative thoughts from taking root and nurturing positive thoughts Chris and Lori’s rituals The importance of boundaries to avoid resentment Finding a tribe that helps you think bigger or reinforce positive thoughts Making tiny adjustments one at a time in order to tackle bigger challenges Why play is such a big deal And so much more…

 

Chris and Lori’s Thoughts…

 

“Clarity is power.”

 

“It’s simple, but it’s not easy.”

 

“Focus on the impact you’re going to make. Anything else robs you of your happiness

and the world of your gifts.”

 

“We don’t find our voice in the easy times.”

 

“Create tribe for transition.”

 

“Elevate yourself through the things you enjoy most, which in turn then elevates other people.”

 

“If it brings you happiness and joy – follow it.”

 

“Choose possibilities and expansion over fear.”

 

“Make choices, not excuses.”

 

“Your version of happy is just that.”

87: Bust Through This Limiting Belief Once and for All

Today’s episode is all about busting through a limiting belief that you may not even know you have. In fact, this very belief may even be holding you back from greater success. Here it is… So many people think that we’re supposed to feel good ALL the time on the quest of entrepreneurship. OK, I’m not saying I want you to feel crappy about it, but here are my thoughts on it.

 

The journey of entrepreneurship isn’t supposed to feel good. I know it sounds crazy, but full honesty, a large portion of the time we don’t know what we’re doing, it feels clunky or awkward and we fail a ton! But unfortunately, we all live in the era of social media where we all see everyone’s highlight reels. I’m all for this, because I feel like I’m pretty happy most of the time, but I also know that I feel frustrated, under-motivated or have a ton of work to get done – and I try to share that with my followers as well.

 

“The wins are not the entire picture of reality.”

 

I feel it is so important to understand the full circle of entrepreneurship – the ups, downs and in-betweens. The problem is that we’ve all been conditioned to think that when we mess up or haven’t gotten it all figured out we think we’re doing it wrong. Hint… You’re NOT!

 

Reality check. Think of the person you love to follow on IG. If you think they have X followers, now cut that in half to get the real number. Don’t get discouraged! You’re figuring it out just like the rest of us. Go into things without abandon and try new things without fear of failure.

 

“If you’re not failing at all, you’re probably doing it wrong.”

 

Let’s go into 2018 by getting real and sharing all side of entrepreneurship. Use this mantra as a reminder!

 

“It’s OK to be silly, to feel silly and look silly.”

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

Why feeling good all the time about entrepreneurship isn’t necessarily a guarantee for success What the reality of entrepreneurship really looks like Why we’ve been conditioned to think we’re doing it wrong.

86: How You Can FIX YOUR MONEY STORY with Peta Kelly

Jan 2, 2018 43:20

Description:

I was so excited to connect with today’s guest serial entrepreneur and author, Peta Kelly, as we hadn’t had a real catch-up in forever. And how amazing is it that it could be timed with her new book, Earth Is Hiring?

Once a self-professed science nerd, Peta followed the pull of her soul into network marketing which soon led to full-on entrepreneurship and she hasn’t looked back since. She’s now made it her mission to help millennials (and anyone else who gives a sh*t), discover The New Way to Live, Lead, Earn and Give.

Listen in to hear how Peta made the conscious decision to change her personal money story in order to align herself with her soul’s purpose, and how you can too. Believe me when I say she makes it sound easy and effortless.

Question Highlights:

Who is Peta Kelly? How did you make the transition from science nerd to serial entrepreneur? Do you feel you have the responsibility to create change? Of your motto, “The New Way to Live, Lead, Earn and Give,” which do you think is the most important? Why are we just now talking about the “New Way” since it’s actually the “old way?” What do you mean when you say we’re voting with our spending power? How do you feel about money? Why do people have such a hang-up with money? If someone feels out of alignment with their money story, where can they start doing the work? What are we going to learn and discover in your new book?

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How millennials are using The New Way to Live, Lead, Earn and Give How Peta went from science nerd to entrepreneur Why network marketing businesses are like training wheels for entrepreneurship What it means to take radical responsibility The importance of raising your vibration Why businesses need to upgrade their practices to support the earth if they want to survive Why money acts as a teammate The importance of getting in alignment with your soul, mission and money How to get in alignment with your money story About Peta’s new book, Earth Is Hiring And so much more…

 

Peta’s Thoughts…

 

“Take care of the planet or bust.”

 

“Our money is never spent. Our money is never asleep.”

“Take responsibility for your own money story.”

Peta Kelly's most favourite title is HUMAN AF. She is a conscious entrepreneur, author, speaker and philanthropist. She was recently featured in Forbes Magazine and was just ranked by Inc Magazine in the Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs changing the world.

 

She’s is an unbridled soul and barefoot bandit on a mission to unleash the jeaniius of GenY’s globally.

She dropped being a PhD science nerd at the age of 22 and went on the pursuit of that ‘thing’ that was calling her higher. That's when she found her first business pursuit in network marketing and She became a 7 figure a year earner in Isagenix by the age of 26. Her network marketing journey led her to her bigger, more global soul work and now she’s building a global enterprise, Jeaniius – a global hub of nakedly brilliant people, mobilized to create change for our planet through conscious enterprise and magical collaborations.

 

Peta teaches the new way to live, lead, earn and give and what excites her the most is bringing her brilliant, badass generation together as one team and one family so that we can gift our planet and our kiddies, an environment where they can thrive. Peta is an angel gifter and a silent investor, and thrives on expanding the cycle of abundance and contribution, especially when it allows young people to kick ass in their endeavors. A millennial with a love of millennials, Peta speaks on global stages, barefoot, to tens of thousands of people, and to millions through her various platforms, sharing visionary messages of conscious living to move hearts and minds to what’s possible.

 

Self-described as an alien, a “vessel” for what needs to flow through her, Peta is the creator of The New Way Live, Jeaniius and The Supercharged and she’s got her first book on the way in early 2018.

Peta was recently featured on The Rise Up movie with Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Danielle LaPorte, Gabby Bernstein, Marie Forleo, Tony Robbins, The Dalai Lama and more.

 

She's a new Mum to her beautiful daughter Sol and has now found a new supersized passion for empowering women to create a beautiful pregnancy and birth experience.

85: Eight Words That Cripple Your Success

Dec 28, 2017 16:54

Description:

 

Words are more powerful than we realize, but today I’m going I’m specifically highlighting eight words that may be crippling your success. We all use them without realizing it and often don’t even intend to use them.

So let’s start 2018 right and kick the following words out of our vocabulary and watch as you see an uptick in your success.

 

TRY – You’ll either do something or you won’t. By saying “try” you’re already building in an excuse. Do or do not – those are your choices.

 

MAYBE – By using this word, you’re telling others that you have no intent on following through, which can lead to feeling overwhelmed. Make this the year of YES or NO – period.

 

SOON – This instantly puts something off until “later.” This word is also a wake-up call you’ve committed to too many things and you must cut what’s not serving you.

 

POSSIBLY – The word says, “if I feel like it, I’ll do it.” You’re not fully committed to anything and you’re feeling overbooked and stressed. Make a commitment.

 

IF – If means you’re putting a condition on following through and that doesn’t make you an ideal business partner.

 

“Nobody wants to be on the other side of your if.”

 

BECAUSE – This word acts as a justifier – and excuse. “I can’t meet with that person because…” You shouldn’t have to talk endlessly about why you can’t.

 

“YES and NO are complete sentences.”

 

WANT – This is probably the most important word to kick to the curb… The word indicates lack and if you’re a frequent listener, you know we shoot for abundance. Using this word means there’s a disconnect between what you want and what you desire.

 

“Things only appear once you know how to make them certain.”

 

LUCKY – Last but still impactful, simply put I don’t believe in luck, I believe in good fortune. And using this word puts you in a powerless position.

 

There you have it! Do you notice these words used frequently in your day-to-day interactions? If so, share with me on IG (@chriswharder) and let me know what you’ll replace them with!

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

The eight words that we must eliminate from our vocabulary in 2018 Why being certain in your decisions makes you an ideal business partner And much more…

84: What is a Net Positive Business and Why is it the Future with Chris Sukornyk

Dec 26, 2017 37:53

Description:

 

I am so excited to continue a conversation that I had a couple months ago in Costa Rica with serial tech entrepreneur, Chris Sukornyk. Originally from Canada with entrepreneurial parents, entrepreneurship was built into his DNA. With a passion for technology, Chris attended University, but felt the teachings were out of tune with reality. He left, just one credit shy of graduating (his parents still remind him) and built his first business.

 

Since that time, Chris has founded (and sold) four other businesses and is now focusing on his next endeavor, which is to help create more net positive businesses and help ecopreneurs. I love that he is intent on creating businesses that are in alignment with his passion as well as his core values around the environment and social responsibility.

 

Listen in to this enlightening episode to find out how net positive entrepreneurship is the up and coming trend to businesses everywhere and how you can make an impact by either creating one or being a part of one.

--

 

Question Highlights:

What’s your best entrepreneurial lessons you learned from your parents? With your most recent advertising tech company, how did you go from zero to 170 employees in such a short amount of time? What was the conflict that came up with your advertising tech business? How did you become realigned with it? Do you think you would be this passionate about net positive businesses if you hadn’t woken up in a business that wasn’t net positive for you? What makes a net positive company different than the old way of doing business? How do you reconcile your dad’s advice (“All that matters is sales.”) with the impact the company is making? Does building a net positive business present a different set of hurdles than we’ve seen in the past? How do you want your children to grow up viewing entrepreneurship and money? How do you view money? Do you think it’s a masculine trait to pursue wealth or can it be a feminine trait as well? Do you feel that your view of money has shifted since getting out of North America and moving down to Costa Rica?

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How Chris came to be such a successful serial tech entrepreneur The importance of connecting with your partners/employees What having a net positive business means How Chris navigated his business when he had lost his passion for it What an ecopreneur is How businesses impact the environment and why they need to minimize it Why people want to hear about the founder or story behind a product Why it’s crucial to find investors who are aligned with your passion Why we need socially minded startups who compete/challenge legacy businesses that are doing damage in the world How we can integrate giving back into our lives and the businesses we create And so much more…

 

Chris’s Thoughts…

 

“The Zero to Hero Life of a Serial Entrepreneur: Either hit it out of the park or one day before the sale, everything could fall apart.”

 

“If your business is aligned with your passion, you’re never tired.”

 

“There’s nothing wrong with having nice things, but we have to be aware of the impact we’re making.”

 

“There has to be more – you have to give back.”

 

“Money is just a vehicle that has value and it can be exchanged for different things.”

 

“Good things are at the end of dirt roads.”

 

--

Chris is a serial entrepreneur having founded and sold five tech startups with combined exits of more than $250 million. In 2015, Chris was recognized by Ernst & Young as the provincial winner of the Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

A lifelong environmentalist and father of four, Chris recently relocated from Toronto to Costa Rica and is now focused on investing and advising “ecopreneurs," founders with a vision to better the world through sustainable, mindful and socially conscious products and services.

83: Our FORMULA to CHOOSE Your INCOME For Next Year

Dec 21, 2017 17:39

Description:

I don’t know about you, but I love when the end of the year approaches. I get super excited about the holidays (which many of you know), but what some you don’t know is that I get super stoked about sitting down with Lori on New Year’s Eve to go over the year’s highs and lows and planning out our yearly income for the upcoming year. It’s such a great practice and today, I’m going to share that exact plan that we’ve been using (with success) for the past several years.

“Why leave it up to chance when you can call your shot, plan what you want to make and make it happen.”

This year, I want you too to take control of your abundance, and part of that process is to pick your target income number. Full disclosure, Lori and I have never met our exact number, but we’re also consistently choosing a number that reflects massive growth over the year before. But don’t let that worry you… As they say, “shoot for the stars and land on the moon.”

“When you have the number picked out and you’re serious about it then your actions naturally follow suit to ensure that you hit it. 

Keep in mind that it is imperative to pick a number that challenges your current income.

“By not changing your goals or plan, you’re automatically choosing by default your current situation.”

Once that number is chosen, you’ll work backward to figure out how you’re going to reach it. As long as you’re committed to that number, you’d be surprised at all the different income sources that pop up.

“There are so many ways to make money, you just have to commit to finding them.”

Draw on your skillset to create products or programs and fill in the gaps. Whether it’s ebooks, podcasts, mastermind groups or affiliate programs, you can exceed your current income and reach your goals (or come pretty darn close to them).

Here’s one example of how to get to $100,000 if you’re currently bringing in $60,000:

Current yearly income = $60,000 You decide to create a coaching program that costs $100/week for one year.

4 clients = $20,000

The coaching was in high demand so you create an e-course which costs $99. You sell 202 e-courses over the year equaling $20,000

$60,000 + $20,000 + $20,000 = $100,000  YOU DID IT!

Again, this is only an example. As I mentioned above, there are so many more ways to make extra income. But it just proves how essential your actions are if you want to reach a specific number. I firmly believe that

“What you make next year is no accident – it is intentional.”

Best of luck in 2018 – I’ll be cheering you on!

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

The exact plan that Lori and I use to map out our yearly income How to pick out your number and work backward to hit your goal How you’re already asking for the income you’re getting without asking About detailed hypothetical scenarios that can lead you to $100,000 or $1 million And much more…

82: Mastering The Law of Abundance with Harriette Hale

Dec 18, 2017 42:16

Description:

 

Whatever your thoughts are on abundance – true or not – you’re going to hear first-hand how my guest, business and mindset coach and entrepreneur, Harriette Hale, tapped into it in a big way. With her first business at the age of 19 (yes, 19!), Harriette quickly climbed her way to success with businesses in music (her passion), dance and spirituality. This success came to a screeching halt, however, when her business partners at the time, planned, plotted and succeeded in taking her entire client list and setting up a competing business on their own. It was a pivotal moment that left Harriette both financially and spiritually broke.

 

Family and friends had no doubt she would bounce back, but she had worked too hard to go back to a 9-5 job and knew she was meant to use her gifts in a different way. Tune in to find out how she broke free of her conditioned mind and surrendered to the universe, subsequently inviting levels upon levels of massive success into her life.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

Who or what gave you this inner knowing that you shouldn’t just get a 9-5 job and forge ahead anyway? What did you learn about the Law of Attraction that so radically changed your life? What’s the key to having an abundant mindset and why do you feel we have the right and responsibility to have one? What are 1 or 2 things people can do to bust through their limiting beliefs around abundance? Where did this unapologetic attraction to having nice things come from? How do people in London/UK tend to view the wealthy as compared to North America? What’s the common thread you see in your successful clients and what’s the common mindset block in those who are unsuccessful?

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How Harriette came back from being both financially and spiritually broke Why we must follow our soul’s intuition About the importance of breaking free from the conditioned mind Why Harriette doesn’t agree with all aspects of the Law of Attraction The key to having an abundant mindset Why it’s our responsibility to be abundant How living in service and light allows the universe to reward you ten-fold Why we must ensure our spending is in alignment with our highest good Why it’s imperative that we surrender Why we need to be generous with ourselves first And so much more…

 

Harriette’s Thoughts…

 

“The only thing standing between me and my success and financial freedom was my money mindset.”

 

“There is a reason for absolutely everything because it’s all divinely aligned and pre-destined by our highest selves.”

 

“We are born with the support and love of the universe.”

 

“We would not be born if we weren’t meant to be abundant.”

 

“We have to have money in our lives so we can help other people in our lives do the same.”

 

“Wake up to the beauty of your world.”

 

“It is perfectly OK to be spiritual and to be rich.”

 

“You have a gift because you are meant to make money from it.”

 

“When we love ourselves, we elevate our vibration so much that we become alchemists of energy.”

 

“Energy is exponential.”

 

“Be generous to yourself first, then to others.”

81: These FIVE Things are BLOCKING Your BUSINESS

Dec 14, 2017 11:29

Description:

Have you hit a plateau with your business and can’t seem to figure out why? Give my following list of five a read (and listen) and I bet you’ll likely find an area to improve upon.

 

Trying to be a one-man show. I get it, you take pride in being able to do it all on your own, but my advice? Get help sooner than later. Save your time (and sometimes money) by getting someone else to do it faster and better. Hint: This is, in my opinion, the No. 1 reason people hit a plateau.

 

Not upgrading your tribe. Seek out people (even if you’re intimidated by them) who are already successful and doing what you want to do. This was a game-changer for Lori and me.

 

“Upgrading your tribe is the world’s greatest shortcut to get from where you are now to where you want to go with your goals.”

 

Not upgrading your personal software. It’s all about working on your own mindset! Keep learning new things.

 

“If you’re not growing, you’re shrinking.”

 

Losing your passion. Keep in mind that love is a verb, but it doesn’t just apply to relationships, it applies to your business too. Don’t let the daily (often boring) tasks bring you down. Make sure to take a break every now and then from working “in” your business and instead work “on” it. Think mastermind groups or something similar that gets you out of the day-to-day briefly, but also keeps that business passion spark alive.

 

“Money is in the monotony.”

 

Paying attention to too many shiny objects. Keep your eye on the prize even when other shiny prizes are being flashed at you. Every time you turn your attention away from your path, you’re putting your business on hold. Stay the course, but find that sweet spot of educating yourself on new trends but not letting it take over everything else. Keep your focus on your original goals.

 

There you have them! Did any sound familiar? Once you’re aware of any blocks that apply to you, you can be on guard so you don’t fall into their traps. And that, of course, means more success – faster!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

What five things are blocking your business Why you shouldn’t try to do everything on your own About the importance of hanging out with already successful people And much more…

79: How To Create an Abundant Holiday

Dec 7, 2017 07:07

Description:

 

With the holidays and the season of giving upon us, I felt it was only fitting to talk about abundance and how abundance can affect us throughout them. For a good portion of people, the holidays can be super stressful – especially when there’s worry around paying for the gifts they want to buy. But here’s the thing, when we worry we send the message of lack out into the universe and we’re looking for abundance.

 

Just as a refresher, when you have a mindset of abundance you are attracting more and more wealth and good things in your life. And on the opposite side, when you have a lack mindset, you’re pushing away all of those abundant things. So when there is stress around how you will pay for gifts, travel, family gatherings etc., you are actually inviting more struggle into your life. And we don’t want that! So this year I challenge you to reframe all of this. 

 

“Break free from the feeling of lack and get back into the good feelings that the holidays are meant for.”

 

Now I get it, if you’re comfortable with the traditional gift-giving – keep doing it! But if you observe your feelings and thoughts around this time of year and you come up with feelings of lack, then speak up! Maybe it’s time to switch your definition of giving.

 

For example, my family decided a few years back to forego traditional gifts (we had a tendency to go overboard) and instead rent a cabin, give our time and enjoy the experience of it.

 

“It’s more about the experience than the gifts.”

 

Just think…what could you give that would create the same feelings of receiving a gift that isn’t something you can buy? Think non-traditional gift ideas could such as the gift of your time, energy, skillset or creativity – the list is endless. Regardless of what you choose, let’s:

 

“Practice abundance, not stress, for the holidays.”

What the differences are between an abundance and lack mindset How Chris switched up his family’s holiday traditions Alternative ways you can give to your family and friends

77: This GRATITUDE Practice Can Make You RICH

Nov 30, 2017 13:57

Description:

I’m often asked what my non-negotiables are when it comes to my success. Today I’ll share one of the most important and that is my gratitude practice. I am certain that the four steps of my gratitude practice have helped me make more money and I’m certain it can help you, too.

 

“Gratitude. It doesn’t just change your life; it continues to keep you on the right track.”

 

Here Are the Four Parts of My Gratitude Practice:

 

Name Your Alarms with Something Positive. These words don’t have to be anything complex or life-changing, but when you’re tired or half-awake, you need it to train your brain to go somewhere positive. It shapes your mindset and shapes your day. Here are a couple of my alarm names: 4:15 a.m. God has blessed us so we can help others 7 a.m. Congratulations! Today is one of the best days of your life. 9 a.m. Everything is happening even better and even faster than expected.

 

Wake Up and Say a Positive Mantra. Again this can be simple, but the important part is that you MUST say it like you mean it. Here’s what Lori and I repeat every morning: “I’m happier, healthier, wealthier and more fit than I was yesterday.” You are programming into your body and into your expectations for the day.

 

Simple Gratitude Prayer. I’m not joking… keep it super simple, almost juvenile and short (only about 60-90 seconds). Take into account all the things you DO have. List them…Thank you for my house. Thank you for my success. Thank you for keeping my loved ones healthy and safe. You get the idea… Just stay away from saying “want.” This wakes you up in lack and we’re shooting for abundance!

 

Meditation. The time on this one varies, but we shoot for 10-20 minutes. Please though, if you’ve only got two minutes to meditate – do it! This is your opportunity to close your eyes, get silent and call in exactly what you want for that day.

 

All of the above tools ensure that you’re able to control your day. Even when those bumps happen, you can easily reframe it because you started your day out in gratitude. So I challenge you, starting today… OWN the results of your day, week, month and year.

 

“Choose what is going to unfold for you instead of letting things unfold and going with the flow.”

 

Try the above steps for a week and keep an open mind. Start with just one of the practices if you feel overwhelmed. I know if you can add even just a little more gratitude into your life that it will help you significantly increase your productivity, income, blessings and abundance.

 

Let me know how it goes (or doesn’t go) – I want to hear either way!

Chris’s four steps in his daily gratitude practice Why you should start your gratitude practice right when you wake up The importance of choosing what your day is going to look like

75: SUCCESS Is Just Beyond THIS POINT...

Nov 23, 2017 08:08

Description:

Lori and I recently visited Costa Rica and met a woman who was working on her Pilates certification. Part of the certification process is teaching classes and this woman shares that she was so nervous that she thought she was going to puke.

 

Have you ever felt that nervous? I know I have, and the most recent example was the very first episode of this podcast. But just like that Pilates instructor, I pushed past that moment to get the reward.

 

“The payoff is past the puke.”

 

Yes, it’s an awful feeling, but it’s just your body and mind’s way of saying, “Whoa, slow down – this is scary.” When you can move through that feeling you’re most often rewarded. But that reward doesn’t come as quickly if you stop short before it can happen.

 

“The point where you feel like you might get ill is the great separator between those who do and those who do not.”

 

You are often times ONE step away from the ultimate payoff – but you must make the choice to keep moving.

 

“It’s one little step, but it’s a HUGE barrier that stops people.”

 

Don’t let the fear – or puke– stop you. Make your dream a reality and keep that momentum going.

 

Do you have any “I got so nervous I puked (or almost puked) stories? Be sure to share them with me on IG!

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

The moment when Chris was so nervous he felt like he could puke Why the payoff is past the puke The benefits of pushing past the fear (or puke)

73: SUCCESS HACK: Always Buy The Upgrade

Nov 16, 2017 09:52

Description:

 

Lori and I have been to our fair share of self- and business-development events, and when we do, there’s one thing we always do… We always buy the upgrade! Upgrading to VIP (or whatever the upgrade is called) has helped so much when it comes to expanding our tribe and network.

 

“Maximize your return on events.”

 

Before I go further, if you’re attending an event by the skin of your teeth and you absolutely cannot afford to upgrade – don’t sweat it. I applaud you for hustling and just getting to the event! And trust me, there are plenty of radically amazing people in general admission as well. BUT, if you do have the extra dollars, and you’re trying to determine whether or not to part with that money, my advice – do it!

 

“Invest in proximity.”

 

When you choose the upgrade you’re choosing an investment of proximity to the people who are already crushing it. You’re setting yourself on a path that may lead you to the answers you’re looking for. You’re surrounding yourself with the doers, big thinkers and hustlers who also expanded their money mindset to have the same experience as you.

 

And guess what? The people who are consistently in the VIP areas are also seeking you out, too, whether it’s as a partner, client or person with fresh ideas. It’s a win all around.

 

Is it always comfortable? No. But I promise that when you do, you’ll plug into a brand-new tribe that takes your success to new levels.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

Why choosing the upgrade at events is beneficial How investing expands your money mindset What kind of people buy the upgrade

Description:

Thanks to today’s guest, real estate entrepreneur, Steve Valentine, your opinion of realtors is about to be challenged. It was never Steve’s intent to get into real estate, however after a brief time in the automotive industry he was called to join his family’s real estate business as a third generation real estate entrepreneur. Steve found great success, however after a huge real estate crash in 2007 and a foreclosure of his own, he had to fight to get his business back and become a “wealth builder.”

--

 

Question Highlights:

What did your family teach you about business? What lessons did you learn? What did your family teach you about money? Why was losing everything a blessing? What’s your advice for people who are facing a huge obstacle? What is this new way of doing real estate? How are you different? What’s different about your employee policies? What are some tangible or profitable benefits of running your company this way? What’s behind you and your giving away 25% of your income? Where did your extreme spirit of generosity come from? And more…

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How Steve got his start in real estate and recovered from foreclosure How failure can make your rich Why being transparent can allow you to better help others Why Steve hates the word realtor What makes Steve’s real estate business so unique from others Why Steve offers his employees unlimited vacation time Why faith is necessary when determining your donations for the year The power and importance of writing your goals down When and where the idea of becoming a “wealth builder” began And so much more…

 

Steve’s Thoughts…

 

“I lost everything, I learned from it and this is how I can help you do it better than I did.”

 

“Every failure we have no matter if it’s big or small, as long as we learn from it it’s one more step up the ladder to something successful.”

 

“If you can look at your failures as rungs on a ladder, the more failure, the higher you’re going.”

 

“When you’re generous and your kids see it and catch it, you know you’ve arrived.”

“If we start with generosity vs. income, it changes your life and makes the world a better place.”

 

--

I've always said I was proud to be a third-generation Realtor. Although, looking back, I finally realize I am not a third-generation Realtor, but a third-generation Real Estate Entrepreneur. My grandmother, Essie Spencer, held her real estate license for 50 years. She practiced until the age of 80. My late father, Dan, practiced in real estate for over 40 years working together as a team with my mother, Debbie (who still practices). This is where my real estate venture began.

 

After short stint in the automotive industry, I gave real estate a shot.  For the first two years of
my career, I sat at my dad’s desk listening to his calls, and sitting in on meetings, and learning how to conduct business. I don’t remember thinking I wanted this type of mentorship at the time, but now I know how valuable it was.  I learned customer service and how to conduct business. After my internship, I worked for my parents nearly 10 years. My wife, Wende, and I decided it was time for us to take what we had learned and forge ahead out from under the umbrella of my parents.

 

The real estate market crash of 2006 left us financially and emotionally devastated. In 2008, Wende and I founded Valentine Group. Through trial and error, and failing forward multiple times, we learned to become real estate entrepreneurs with a new way of doing business for a new generation of homeowners also recovering from the fallout from 2006. Since 2008, our group has served over 2500 families and continue to serve more than 200 families each year. We provide solid real estate solutions, designed for each individual client, each and every day.

 

One of the greatest things Wende and I have to offer, though Valentine Group’s diversification, is experience. When my father passed, one thing he said resonates in my head, “…there are very few people who will see the multiple markets we’ve seen in during your short 17 years in the business. We’ve witnessed the rapid rise in the real estate market in 2003 and 2004, and the astronomical prices and lotteries to purchase homes in 2005 and 2006. Then, the sudden crash in 2007.” How true. During this same crash, Wende and I made our way through our own foreclosure. This experience allowed us to truly and honestly help others though theirs. A sense of “normalcy” in the market began to return, for us, in 2010 and on into 2011 as we worked through decreasing inventory foreclosures and an increase in clients asking how to not only buy a primary residence, but how to purchase investment properties as well. By being as brave as our clients through the re-birth of the real estate market, we now, in 2016, have been blessed as our business grew from three to more than 11 employees. Eleven individuals in a strategic group, working together to serve our diverse clientele as we specialize in various real estate transactions. While we still proudly represent our clients in traditional buying and selling of homes for families, we are also now working with wholesalers and investors in building wealth through a variety of wealth building tools.

 

I’d leave it at that…. But the rest follows: This includes, but is not limited to, repurposing (or what some of you might know as “flipping”) homes, finding rental properties, using private funds to purchase long-term holdings which increases wealth for our investors. At the end of the day Valentine Group strives to provide multiple solutions for our clients from real estate advice, to wealth building strategies, to property management. Most Realtors measure their impact by the number of homes they sold, or the dollar volume homes sold, or he amount of commissions earned. While we can’t deny the significance of those stats, we feel it is more important to impact our clients lives by providing practical knowledge. We make sure we are there when they need advice or encouragement whether it's buying, selling, or renovation suggestions.

71: SUCCESS HACK! Connect More People

Nov 9, 2017 07:06

Description:

Over the last couple years, taking a cue from my friend and mentor, Lewis Howes, I’ve made it my own personal mission to connect as many people as possible. Once you see that it’s a gift to connect two people who need each other – it’s a no brainer.

So how do you go about connecting people? First off, when you meet new people or even when you’re talking to an old friend, get present and LISTEN! I know it sounds simple, but by really tuning in and learning what their goals are or what they’re passionate about, you’re able to connect them with others who have an expertise in an area they need help with or maybe they know someone who does.

I’ve started making mental notes of everyone I talk to and lately, I’m able to connect them to someone else who can help them immediately. And it feels amazing! Not only do I get to have a hand in the magic, but often times the favor is returned down the road. 

“The more people you can help with their dreams, the more they’ll help with yours.”

Of course this isn’t the driving reason to do this, but it is incredible what happens when you find the right people, your tribe, to accelerate your journey or find shortcuts. And we all know how hard it can be to find the “right” people.

With 2018 just around the corner, I challenge you to make an intention to ask what people are up to and connect more people. Make it your new addiction to become an ultimate connector. Are you in?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

Why it’s so important to find your people or your tribe How connecting more people can lead to more success for you How to be a better listener

70: The PERFECT DAY Formula for Entrepreneurs with Craig Ballantyne

Nov 6, 2017 52:22

Description:

 

After having a conversation with my guest, Craig Ballantyne, it’s hard to believe that he once struggled with crippling anxiety despite living “the life.” It’s what he likes to call the “paradox of freedom.” He had the freedom, but was still trapped when it came to having panic attacks. Sometimes his attacks came out of nowhere and other times they were predictable (drinking excessive amounts of caffeine or alcohol). He knew it was time to do something about them, however, when he had an anxiety attack for nearly six weeks straight.

 

Having since gotten a handle around his anxiety, Craig now enjoys sharing his story to help others work through theirs. And because we talk a lot about gratitude in this podcast, I love that one of his biggest tips is practicing gratitude and helping others daily.

 

Craig’s transparency in this interview is invaluable and I hope that if you or someone you know suffer from anxiety that you discover some helpful tools to help you control them moving forward.

Question Highlights:

What was your upbringing like and how did it lead to your success and the epic knowledge you have today? What did you do to overcome your anxiety/panic attacks? Have you seen a trend among your clients of anxiety holding them back? How have you done well in both personal training and business? What is The Perfect Day Formula? Do you find that you have clients who sacrifice happiness at home for a thriving business? What would be better to start with – your book or The Perfect Day Kit? What role has generosity played in your success? What is one of your all-time favorite moments of giving? And more…

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How Craig overcame is struggle with anxiety and panic attacks Why anxiety is like a black box How gratitude, generosity and helping others has aided Craig in coping with anxiety Why we shouldn’t suffer in silence The importance of having good mentors Why you must figure out what moves you ahead toward your legacy in life – professionally and personally How the Three Cs help you establish rules for your life How your values drive anything you do Why it’s essential to prioritize your values And so much more…

 

Craig’s Thoughts…

 

“Everything is a learnable skill.”

 

“At the root of anxiety is self-doubt.”

 

“Admitting a weakness is a strength.”

 

“It wasn’t the law of attraction; it was the law of action attraction.”

 

“You can attract great opportunity into life when you do the work.”

 

“Control what you can. Cope with what you can’t. Concentrate on what counts.”

 

“When your actions are misaligned with your goals it causes internal stress in us.”

 

“If you want to do great things, you have to do fewer things.”

69: The REAL Gift of Being Rich

Nov 2, 2017 08:30

Description:

What’s the real reason you want wealth? The power, the “things” or the social standing? While all those things are great here’s my thoughts on being wealthy just to be wealthy.

 

“Don’t get rich just to get rich because you won’t feel any different than you do today.”

 

Get rich for the gift of who you become during the process to get there. Money isn’t going to make a lick of difference unless you change who you are. Now don’t get me wrong – I’m sure you’re an amazing individual already – but we’re looking for the upleveled version of you.

 

“The wealthy you should be an enhanced version of what you are today.”

 

You have to grow new strengths, be more open, expand your network and people and become more giving. After all, the more you give, the more you get, right?

 

“In order to really grow wealthy, you need to really grow.”

 

Yes, that means you need to be more consistent and more disciplined. But it also means – and here’s the kicker – you need to be more caring!

 

“Becoming wealthy is really a side effect of solving more peoples’ needs than you are today.”

 

How will your money make someone’s life better? Most of the successful people I know and hang around don’t talk about their wealth or all the things they have. Instead they talk about the impact they’re making and who they want to help next. It’s not about what you get back.

 

Becoming the enhanced version of yourself is THE ultimate gift because it’s about the person you get to be as you make your way through this life. The money and possessions are just the icing on the cake.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

What the ultimate gift of being wealthy is Why becoming wealthy has the potential to create a more enhanced version of yourself Why growth is required to increase your wealth

68: Is The PURSUIT of Money Just a MASK of MASCULINITY with Lewis Howes

Oct 30, 2017 43:51

Description:

 

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of my friend and mentor, Lewis Howe’s book, Mask of Masculinity. I devoured the book in just a couple of days and love how it brought me just as many moments of enlightenment and breakthroughs as it did resistance. And this is why I was so honored to have an in-person interview with Lewis the other day to talk about it.

 

If you’re a man who wants to understand the masks he wears or a woman who wants to obtain the “keys to the kingdom” and the tools to connect with the men in her life, I definitely recommend buying the book (or pre-ordering – it releases Oct. 31) and for sure listening to this episode as he explains more about his journey with this book and also gives an in-depth into his sincere and giving nature.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

Why did you write Mask of Masculinity and why right now? Was the book a healing process for you as well as other men? Do women wear these masks as well?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

Why Lewis wrote Mask of Masculinity How his new book helps men let go of their ego and heal How men are conditioned to react with anger and frustration What ways men use masks to fit in or to ensure they’re worthy of acceptance How we can break out of our default masks by getting to the root cause of them The importance of being aware of things that trigger your masks When money feels fulfilling or unfulfilling Why it’s necessary to have regular conversations about money The reason why Lewis still drives a 1991 Cadillac he bought for $4,000 Why having a holistic lifestyle is a non-negotiable for Lewis What the rewards and prices of wearing masks are And so much more…

 

Lewis’s Thoughts…

 

“If we want to be ultimate human beings, we should be committed to our vision, not our egos, which hurt us.”

 

“Reacting is never as good as responding from a place of grace.”

 

“How can I be driven to achieve what I want, but make sure I’m living in harmony as well?”

 

“Be who you want to be and embrace it, but have peace in your heart.”

 

“Ultimate fulfillment is when we continue to grow and contribute to others.”

 

“If self-worth is based on a mask, it’s temporary.”

 

“Even if you can’t give financially, you can still give your heart and energy to people and it will feel amazing.”

 

“Don’t stop being who you are. Step into who you fully are by embracing a holistic lifestyle.”

 

“The more you achieve and succeed, the more of an example you can set for others.”

67: The Fastest Way Out of Financial Struggle

Oct 26, 2017 08:51

Description:

 

Do you know someone (or are you that someone) who struggles with growing their income? Today we’re going to crack the code of this financial struggle wide open and talk about ways to eliminate it!

 

Most often people think that it’s because the person is lazy, scared, or afraid to try new things. Or perhaps that they lack drive or the resources. I believe that it’s none of the above. In my opinion, I believe it’s because these people aren’t regularly expanding their minds. They become stuck because they’re not shifting paradigms and they’re not seeking different perspectives.

 

“You cannot expect to have new levels of success with old levels of growth.”

 

You will never reach new heights in your business if you are still applying old ideas and methods.

 

“When you exercise your mind, everything else expands right along with it.”

 

So how do you exercise your mind anyway? I say, expand, expand, expand!

 

Expand your circle of influence (you will likely transcend some in your current circle) Expand your ability to jump over hurdles that get in your way Expand your motivation and drive Expand your business acumen

 

Some of the best ways to do the above is through books, podcasts, coaches and masterminds. If you really want to bust out of that financial rut, all of the above apply. I know it’s a lot, but if nothing changes, nothing changes.

 

“You need new ideas to reach new levels of growth.”

 

Read new books that offer opposing views. Attend high-level events. Yes, it will be scary as hell, but you will leave a totally different, more expanded person (trust me!). And if you commit to growing your mind and your standards – you will grow your income as well.

Why people remain stuck in financial struggle What isn’t holding people back Ways to expand your mind and grow financial success

66: From Trailer Park to Tech Mogul - The Inventor of Face Filters Jeremy Greene

Oct 23, 2017 44:21

Description:

 

By all accounts, today’s guest and CEO of PingTank, Jeremy Greene, shouldn’t be running one of the most successful tech companies around. As a child who grew up poor, spent years in the foster care system and barely graduated high school, he was certainly not groomed to be an entrepreneur, but there was one difference… he had an innate sense to survive and hustle to get where he’s at today.

 

From a start in the music business to the face filters you see today in social media, Jeremy’s 8-Mile-esque story is mind-blowing. If you’re looking for an inside scoop on pitching your ideas and turning them into realities, Jeremy’s no-nonsense talk will set you straight about what works – and what doesn’t.

--

 

Question Highlights:

Tell us how you got started in the music industry Why did you drop your career in music? Where did you get the posture to present yourself to billionaires? When you were figuring out how to be an entrepreneur, were there setbacks? What’s your best trait as an entrepreneur? How do you get people to say yes? Where did you get your huge financial thermostat from? Do you feel that you’re able to make a bigger impact because of your wealth? Where do you like to make an impact with your money? And more…

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How Jeremy went from trailer park to tech mogul How Jeremy got his start in the music business Why Jeremy shifted his focus from music to technology Why you must fail in order to succeed The importance of instilling a fear of missing out mentality when pitching your product What Jeremy’s new app Mojiit is all about How one can make in impact without money Why hustling is so important to get the money to build a bigger platform Tips on how to part ways from people you’ve outgrown And so much more…

 

Jeremy’s Thoughts…

 

“I really understand that marketing plays a big aspect in everything you do in life.”

 

“If you could create and sell people on a product and you can build a good product, you could convince anyone to be a part of it.”

 

“Building a good company starts with building an amazing product first, marketing it right and giving people the fear of missing out.”

 

“You don’t learn anything until you have failures behind you.”

 

“If you want to disrupt anything, it starts with just being OK with the comfortability of you first. You can’t sell something to other people if you don’t believe it yourself.”

 

“Money doesn’t buy you happiness, but it makes you comfortable.”

 

“Money doesn’t define who you are and what you become. Where you grow up does not define where you’ll be one day. It’s OK to outgrow people, places and things.”

 

“You don’t need money to be successful. You have everything that’s built within you to be successful.”

 

“If you have money in the bank and you’re not helping people, you’re an a**hole.”

 

“Do what you love.”

Jeremy Greene is an American serial entrepreneur based in Los Angeles, California . He grew up in Maine.

65: How to Create Explosive Growth through Masterminding!

Oct 19, 2017 19:20

Description:

Today we’re doing a deep-dive on the topic of masterminds – why they work, what you might not know, how you can create or become a part of one yourself, and so much more.

 

First off, let’s define what a mastermind is. A mastermind is essentially a group of people all working together to mastermind on each other’s business (or another area).

 

“The idea is to go into a mastermind with massive, audacious goals and come out on the other end smashing those goals.”

 

Lori and I have personally invested and been involved in two business masterminds – one we didn’t complete, however we still learned so much from it. Our most recent has been a raging success exploding our income with an additional seven figures beyond our existing goal.

 

So how was this success possible? Below are some key areas that will help ensure a healthy ROI on your investment:

 

Family mentality: Everyone is treated as family and everyone is open to helping each other when they can facilitate – think any aspect of business that you don’t know how to do Group diversity: It’s necessary to have a diverse group of people and skills to ensure different perspectives Size is key: Not too small, not too big – 20-25 people is ideal Duration: A year commitment allows any breakthroughs to be implemented and completed Enough touchpoints to ensure accountability (quarterly, monthly and weekly) At the same point financially heading toward the same (or similar) financial goal

 

“When you get all the layers right, your significant investment turns into multiple returns.”

 

Masterminds are a magical formula that combines ideas, support, accountability and connections that when utilized correctly can help you reach your goals. Don’t try to do everything alone when you could literally have 20 or more people making life easier for you. Instead mastermind and catapult your business to new heights.

63: The REAL Reason 95% of Businesses Fail

Oct 12, 2017 07:12

Description:

So, why do so many businesses fail, or more to the point, why do so many not even get off the ground? It may surprise you to know that often it’s not because it’s a bad business. It’s not because it’s a bad idea or product, and it’s not because the person isn’t a good “business person.”

 “The reason 95% of all businesses fail is because everyone is allowed to call themselves an entrepreneur without actually acting like an entrepreneur.”

So many people seem to think that being an entrepreneur is this fun, romantic and energizing endeavor – like a magical entrepreneurial movie. But it’s actually quite the opposite. It’s gritty, dirty, scary and downright uncomfortable at times. Entrepreneurship consumes your life.

“You don’t build a business in your spare time, you build your business all the time.”

If you’re not willing to do that, your business and your entrepreneurial career isn’t likely to go too far. It’s all about going that extra mile. You ask for help. You face rejection over and over. You have to learn what you don’t already know to reach your goals.

True entrepreneurs do all the above (and more). And when they do, their business success follows.

62: The Secret to MORE PROFITABILITY with Thor Conklin

Oct 9, 2017 44:24

Description:

I think you’re all really going to love my conversation with founder of Peak Performance Group and profitability expert, Thor Conklin. He first caught wind of entrepreneurship while caddying for successful businesspeople at the age of 13. Not only did he help them navigate through challenging golf courses, he also asked questions, listened and learned tips on navigating his own businesses down the road. Of course he didn’t start any at that age, but he credits many foundational elements to that time in his life.

 

Today, Thor does his best to pay it forward by being the “caddie” for others in their businesses by helping them maneuver around problem areas or obstacles that can stray one off their path to profitability. He challenges his clients (and others) to use accountability as a tool to reach new levels of success (hint: you don’t have to do it alone!).

 

I love how Thor operates both in his businesses and his life – giving both his time and money to ensure others are moving forward to create maximum results (see special offer below). Be sure to listen to the full episode as he drops some amazing nuggets of knowledge that can help you get out of your own way and take action.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

Being a caddie, and being around business people, what’s the lesson that stands out the most to you? Who’s one of the people who’s had the biggest impact on the successful life you live? What does it mean to be a senior leader with Tony Robbins, and what kind of exposure did you have to him? What kind of impact has this relationship had on your life? Do you have a preparation ritual before you speak to or meet with people? Do you feel like the most successful people have some sort of strong morning ritual they start with? What are your thoughts when it comes to entrepreneurs regarding profit vs. revenue? Do you think we live in a time where people are being overfed knowledge? What’s typically the biggest waste you see when you dig into someone’s profitability? Do you have any tips to help people stop their limiting mindsets? What are your thoughts on profit? Have you seen a correlation between profit and impact? What role has generosity played in your life?

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How Thor used his job as caddie when he was younger to learn about business How Thor became a senior leader within the Tony Robbins Organization Why a morning ritual is part of most successful people’s lives What work/life balance means to Thor How PEAK Performance is able to help you – Profitability, Execution, Accountability and Knowledge Why execution and accountability trump knowledge What components make up Thor’s Ultimate Success Map Why it’s so important to find someone that you pay to hold you accountable Tips to help stop limiting beliefs Thor’s views on profit That there is no honor in trying to do things alone And so much more…

 

Chris’s Thoughts…

 

“If you can’t turn those sales into profits and those profits into cash, then why are we doing what we’re doing?”

 

“Most people think that they’re business owners, but their business owns them.”

 

“People know what to do. They just can’t figure out how to get it done.”

 

“Knowledge is not power. Correct knowledge applied properly is power.”

 

“We don’t want to admit that the problem might be us.”

 

“You need to make money so you can give it away.”

 

“I want to know that I had a hand in the psychology, the process and the actions of an individual.”

 

“Wealth is a byproduct of a value provided to the marketplace.”

61: If You Just Had FAITH - A True Story

Oct 5, 2017 09:18

Description:

 

Today I want to talk about having faith and how it ties to abundance. Faith is no small thing. It truly has the power to make or break different situations in your life. If you believe it will happen, it will happen.

 

You don’t have to know the how or the where… you just have to know. It’s acting on something even when you’re scared because you know abundance is out there.

 

My trainer, Abe, recently had a faith-testing situation. He hadn’t had a vacation in five years and desperately wanted to unplug with a month-long trip in Bali. But of course there was fear around it. Obviously a vacation like that is a lot of money, but on top of that, he wouldn’t be getting paid for that entire month while he was away. Long story short, Abe booked the vacation on faith.

 

“I had faith that the finances would work out.”

 

And they did! Abe’s finances appeared seemingly out of the blue. Here’s how abundance showed up for him… I hired him to train me 3-4 sessions a week. Plus, he received a surprise bonus and had the busiest month of his career the month before he left. Long story short? Abe came back from his trip fully rested and more abundant than ever.

 

Now, I’ve oversimplified the ease at which this all happened, because after all, faith is not intuitive to our brains. Our brains send out the emergency flares any time fear starts creeping in to keep us safe. But this is the exact spot where we need to interrupt those thoughts and do the opposite – no matter how uncomfortable it makes us.

 

“Just because it doesn’t feel intuitive doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.”

 

Let blind faith lead you. Don’t let fearful thoughts get in the way. Abundance only happens when you truly feel the faith at your core.

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How one man acted on faith and attracted abundance Why you don’t have to know the how or where in all situations Why it’s so important to have faith to attract abundance

59: The "Up-Leveling" Trap and How to AVOID IT

Sep 28, 2017 06:05

Description:

My Two Cents – Ep. 59 – The “Up-Leveling Trap” and How to Avoid It

 

We’re often told that if we want to get further and have more success we must start surrounding ourselves with those who are doing what we want to do or are doing bigger things. This is a good thing, however, when we continually spend time with these types of people we start falling into the “up-leveling trap,” which is comparison.

 

We start feeling like we’re not doing enough because we’re not where they are. But here’s the thing…mentors are supposed to be ahead of you! Don’t compare your journey to theirs. Be conscious of your own journey and love where you’re at.

 

“You have to pause and look back at how far you’ve come instead of looking at how far you have left to go.”

 

Be grateful that someone else has done it first and is willing to share how to get you there. Be grateful they’ve given you a “roadmap.”

 

“Be grateful for who you are and what you have right now and what you’re doing, but be equally excited about where you’re going.”

 

When you can find this balance between the two, you know you’re on a healthy journey to success and abundance.

 

The next time you find yourself about to fall into the up-leveling trap, do me (and yourself) a favor and make a conscious effort to stop comparison in its tracks. Catch your thoughts and meditate for five minutes in a quiet place. Think about and picture how far you’ve come in the last week, month, year and beyond. I promise it will shift your perspective and help ground you where you’re supposed to be.

 

It’s definitely normal for these thoughts to come up, but it is not OK to let them stop you, to wallow in them or let them be an excuse. Be grateful that others have paved the way for you and also allowed you to create your own unique path to success. And be assured that if you stay ambitiously on this path success and abundance will follow.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

What the “up-leveling trap” is and how to avoid it Why the gap between you and your mentors should be view as a roadmap Why it’s important to have gratitude for your journey

58: This Disabled Veteran Worth Millions is Paying it Forward with Joey Fazio

Sep 25, 2017 01:01:56

Description:

I am so glad that today’s guest and wildly successful entrepreneur, Joey Fazio, and I were recently introduced by a mutual friend. Growing up in a military family, his life was a bit atypical as his father was gone often (at age 12 his dad was deployed and didn’t come home for three years). Joey left his parents’ home at the age of 17, joined college a little after only to eventually drop out at age 20 and join the military (Air Force) himself.

 

Always having an innate drive for success and dreams of bigger things, he left his secure military job to pursue the unknown. Unfortunately, his wife at the time (who had two children with) did not share his passion, and they divorced. So, at the age of 26, Joey started over with a negative net worth, but knew he would become a multi-millionaire by age 36. Spoiler alert: He’s now 36 and a multi-millionaire.

 

You don’t want to miss this episode as Joey shares his amazing, but sometimes difficult entrepreneurial journey. I truly appreciated how authentic and vulnerable our conversation was and I know that you will resonate with it as well – especially on topics of relationships, money and giving back.

Question Highlights:

 

What were you feeling like when you were starting over with nothing? What is your advice for those who feel someone they love is holding them back? What did you learn in the military that you use today? Where can someone develop discipline if they haven’t been in the military? Of your business, which is your favorite? Where does your insane entrepreneurial drive come from? Would you be able to make as big a difference as you do now without money? What does money mean to you? How do you want your kids to grow up viewing money and opportunity?

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

About how Joey turned a negative worth into millions Advice on what to do if you have an unsupportive partner or spouse Why discipline is essential to growing a successful business The importance of working from the bottom up in a company Why time and opportunity is more important than money How Joey raises his kids to view money And so much more…

 

Joey’s Thoughts…

 

“Time is the most valuable resource that any of us have.”

 

“Act now – the sooner the better.”

 

“Couples that share goals and have the same vision have a much higher chance of succeeding than those with separate goals.”

 

“If you don’t have the partner who supports you and sees your vision – leave.”

 

“Start at the bottom. Work every position. Be the smartest person in the room.”

 

“If you have the opportunity to put yourself in a position of power and that truly helps people and makes a difference – do it.”

 

“You can’t help anyone from the bottom.”

 

“If you piss off 10 people to help a million – do it.”

 

“It’s not about the money, it’s about the opportunity.”

 

“If you’re going to help, go all in.”

57: Abundance HACK! How To Get GOOD At SALES

Sep 21, 2017 12:03

Description:

Take a poll on how people feel about sales and my guess is that you’ll see a large portion of people who are uncomfortable with it or just plain don’t like it. If sounds like you, I encourage you to stay put and hear my take on it.

 

First off, sales intrigues me. I’m kind of a nerd that way, but I like it! And maybe it’s because I do approach it from a more positive perspective.

 

“You’re always selling someone on an idea that you believe in.”

 

Whether it’s a point of view or a product, I think most can agree with that statement, but link it to money and that’s when people start to get uncomfortable. And it’s likely because they had bad experiences that helped support that feeling. So my goal with this episode is to change those opinions and feelings around selling and help you get comfortable with it.

 

Let’s take the words “sales” and “money” out of the equation. Now you can focus on the people, and offer them a valuable solution for their problem.

 

“You’re currently placing too much value on money and not enough value on your customers’ needs.”

 

It’s all about an equal energy/value exchange. As Lisa Nichols puts it,

 

“Sales is just a dignified conversation enrolling two people into a new possibility to enhance their lives.”

 

Sales doesn’t have to be sleazy and it doesn’t mean that anyone is getting the wool pulled over their eyes. Sales is taking an interest in the actual people – not their money (even though that’s an amazing side effect).

 

“The best sales are caring conversations.”

 

But just like any relationship, don’t be surprised if the sale or friendship isn’t locked in right away. It takes time and follow-up to build a connection. Have patience and don’t make the mistake of stopping that conversation because you think they’re going to say no.

 

“Don’t create a false no in your head just because the person who you’re selling to isn’t ready to say yes.”

 

A person saying “not yet” is not a NO. Don’t get tripped up by doubts and don’t stop out of fear or being judged. The world needs your unique solutions!

 

“Not selling to protect your ego is being selfish – not caring.”

 

If you’re aligned in integrity and you whole-heartedly believe in your solution or product, it will eventually happen and abundance will appear. It is your moral obligation to share your solutions with others. Because if you’re not, who else will they turn to? 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

Why people are so uncomfortable about sales How sales is essentially helping to solve peoples’ problems Why it’s so important to take an interest in those you’re trying to sell to

55: MYTH BUSTING! Is "Balance" A Real Thing

Sep 14, 2017 09:37

Description:

Ah, balance – it’s something you hear a lot of about. So is it real or is it a fairy tale? If the mere mention of balance has you feeling conflicted, you’re not alone. Do we let flow just happen or do we take the bull by the horns and make it happen?

 

As an entrepreneur, you have people like Tim Ferriss who promote a four-hour workweek while spending your time on remote islands or anywhere else in the world you want to work. And then you have the die-hard, Gary Vaynerchuk’s, who are all about the hustle and working harder and harder.

 

Honestly, I agree with both sides of that coin because either way and at some point, you’re going to feel guilty. It sets in when you’re working hard and take a break or not working as hard. Or it happens when you’ve got your sleeves rolled up, working hard and people tell you you’ve gotten out of touch and they never see you. That’s why I believe that daily or weekly balance is a myth – or at the very least, it’s misleading.

 

“Balance is something that’s always changing and that’s the key. You need to honor it and change with it.”

 

Lori and I like to talk about in terms of “seasons.” I cannot stress the importance enough of honoring the season you’re in. Don’t let someone else dictate what you should be doing, what do you feel like doing?

 

“The key is to trade ‘should’ with ‘I feel like.’”

 

Pay attention to what you’re feeling like. Are you amped and ready to power through for an extended period of time, or do you feel like going to the beach and eating pizza? Whichever season it is, know that eventually you’re going to want a change. If you’re working hard and in a productive mode, you’re eventually going to want a period of rest, travel or play. On the flip side, those beach days will soon lead to boredom and restlessness and you’ll likely crave a productive season.

 

While I’m no expert, my typical “doing” season is about 120 days max and my season of “rest” follows for about 30-45 days. Again, these are just MY seasons – yours may be very different as there’s no magic formula. Balance is purely subjective – it all boils down to how YOU feel.

 

So in an effort to help you find balance between your seasons, I challenge you to do two things:

 

Listen to and honor your season. Ignore all social media and other influencers (yes, even me) who are in a different season than you. Trust me. It will only make you feel guilty,

 

Once you figure out this balance, I know you’ll feel better. And when we feel better, we can do even more amazing things in life and business.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

If balance is real or just a fairy tale How balance can be compared to the different seasons The difference between a productive and rest season

54: Changing The World, One Sex Toy at a Time with Polly Rodriguez

Sep 11, 2017 45:01

Description:

Now that I’ve got your attention, I’d like for you to meet Polly Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of Unbound, a sexual wellness company. Raised in the Midwest, this was not the path she saw herself taking early on in life, however after a cancer diagnosis in college and consequently a premature onset of menopause at the age of 21, she was compelled to dig when she found a lack of information in regard to it.

What started as a small quest to more comfortably purchase sexual wellness products, Unbound has now grown into a wildly successful business (despite multiple barriers and misconceptions to break down) that empowers countless women to explore their sexuality. Don’t miss this inspiring story that proves that anything is possible!

--

Question Highlights:

• What thoughts went through your head when you were diagnosed with cancer?

• What is Unbound?

• Where did you get the idea for it and how did it get started?

• What was one of your biggest business challenges?

• Was there any hesitation about starting a company in the sexual wellness field? Were you worried what your parents would think?

• What does the landscape look like for women entrepreneurs?

• What has to happen in order for it to be easier for women to have a successful start-up?

• What initially drove you to give a portion of your business profits away? In This Episode You Will Learn:

• How Polly came up with her business, Unbound

• About the challenges of running a sexual wellness company

• How Polly overcame the stigmas and misconceptions associated with sexual wellness products

• Why giving away a portion of Unbound’s profits boosts team morale

• Why getting cancer is a huge part of Polly’s success

• Why it’s so important to have a career that’s more than just a job, that it has a purpose

• And so much more…

Polly’s Thoughts…

“Everything’s a good experience if you have the right attitude.”

“If you can be really vulnerable and honest about what it is about human sexuality that interests you, you can just simmer in that awkward moment and why you’re interested…and only good things can come from that.”

“I had to be brutally confident that it would work out.”

“Women, especially millennials, want a job that has a bigger meaning or purpose.”

“It’s not just about selling, it’s about something more meaningful.”

“Getting cancer was this weird gift that gave me permission to pursue a different path.”

“Something that feels selfish can actually be a charitable act in a lot of ways.”

--

From the start of her career, Unbound’s CEO, Polly Rodriguez, has always been committed to elevating the customer experience from acceptable to exceptional. With a background in strategy consulting, she began at the firm, Deloitte, where she innovated new, thoughtful approaches to outdated customer tactics. Translating this skillset to an entirely different industry, Polly’s next role was as Director of Growth for the YCombinator startup Grouper, which focused on the most flawed experience of all: dating in New York City (and subsequently globally). Yet, there was one interaction that continued to plague her — the process of shopping for, and finding, adequate sexual wellness products for the modern woman. It wasn’t until Polly was diagnosed with cancer at age 21 and went through premature menopause as a result of the radiation treatment that she faced the disparaging barriers that women encounter when seeking to explore their own sexuality. Wanting to ameliorate the process of shopping for sex products — one that is often overwhelming and uncomfortable — she took her place as the CEO of Unbound, a sexual lifestyle company that specializes in subscription boxes, one-off thematic sets, and most recently an original collection. With the goal of helping women empower themselves through sexual exploration, Polly continues to innovate new and unprecedented approaches to a rapidly evolving industry.

53: One CHOICE That Will Make You MORE MONEY

Sep 7, 2017 09:34

Description:

My Two Cents today is about a simple, but powerful topic, and it’s about the importance of becoming more open…waaaay more open. Currently, I know a lot of people who don’t understand why they’re not further ahead than they are in life. The common denominator? All are working in silos – ideas, groups of people, etc. They’ve gotten so used to the way things are (and should be in their minds) and they aren’t open to anything different. I can say this because I’ve been this person. I’ve shut down so many different opportunities all because I had already made a decision as to what it would be like. But once I became more open to entrepreneurship, networking and new point of views, the new possibilities rolled in and became new realities. And as embarrassing as it is to admit, I’m also more open to new people that I may have judged in the past. In order to make this shift though I had to get over the fear first. “Our lack of openness comes from fear or fear of change.” I know that change and everything that goes along with it can be uncomfortable, but try different things on for size and see what happens. I’ve had so many life-shifting experiences that forced me to be more open and at the same time created amazing opportunities – in both life and business. What if that one small (or big) leap changes your life, too? So if you’re wishing for more abundance in your life, whether it’s money, happiness, memories or experiences, know that it comes down to this one powerful choice. And now’s as good a time as any to make it. “Your break is on the other side of choosing to be open.” In This Episode You Will Learn: • Why becoming more open will create more abundance in your life • How trying something “on for size” can lead to huge life changes • Why busting through fears is a part of being more open Resources: For more stories and tips on becoming unapologetically wealthy, follow me @Chriswharder on Instagram and check out fortheloveofmoney.com.

52: Teaching Teen Tycoons - A Russian-American Success Story with Olenka Cullinan

Sep 4, 2017 52:18

Description:

 

I heard today’s guest, Olenka Cullinan, speak at an event recently and I just knew her story had to be shared with this audience. In a nutshell, this entrepreneurial powerhouse left Russia at age 19 with only $450 to her name (that she borrowed from her uncle) determined to seize the American dream and build anything she wanted. While growing up in an entrepreneurial household (her mom was a die-hard entrepreneur with her own company), she chose to pursue education instead in an effort to distance herself from the entrepreneurial world. Once in the U.S., she worked three jobs at one point to complete her education degree (and completed it without owing a cent!).

 

While Olenka loved teaching people, she soon felt the pull to do more and leapt back into the entrepreneurial world while combining it with her training in education. She may have started off with humble beginnings, but she has since used the skills she knew she had and BUILT her own success. Olenka is determined to help others discover their passions and now teaches teenagers the skills to become successful entrepreneurs in her Rising Tycoons Academy. She truly believes in helping this country’s youth turn their dreams into a dream life. I already know I’ll be applying the principles she taught in this episode to my children down the road. Be sure to tune in to find out how you can too.

Question Highlights:

 

Why didn’t you choose to be an entrepreneur right away when you came to the U.S.?

What is holding people back the most when it comes to pursuing their passionista journey?

How do you want your daughter to view money and success when she grows up?

How Olenka teaches teens success skills in entrepreneurship, leadership and personal development

Olenka’s Thoughts…

 

“If skills are learnable, then success is learnable, too.”

 

“Comfort and execution don’t live on the same block.”

 

“You always choose. You can look at any circumstance in your life and choose what it becomes. Is it going to become an excuse or an opportunity? Because you can’t have both at the same time.”

 

“We can only change the country by changing the next generation.”

 

“Stop preparing and start doing.”

 

“You have to practice the unsexy routine to get anywhere, but you have to give yourself small pieces of ‘candy’ along the way to remind yourself why you’re doing that.”

 

“Kids have no issues with having dreams. They only have issues finding pathways for those dreams.”

 

“The moment you stop looking at money as something to move you forward and start looking at it as something that creates love in your community, family and in the world around you, is when you’ll change your perspective.”

51: Connect the Dots, an EMPOWERMENT HACK

Aug 31, 2017 07:53

Description:

What would you say if I told you that your future is fully in your control with the help of one empowerment hack? Too good to be true? Possibly, but then you’re not using the hack. ;)

 

Today’s Two Cents talks about accepting 99.9% responsibility for your current situation. Think about it… The dots (your choices) always connect back to you. Whether it’s a moment of weakness where you said yes or no to something or you missed an appointment because your car broke down…it doesn’t matter. Whatever the “event” was, you made a choice and that choice is why you’re where you’re at now.

 

Look, I’m not trying to be an ass (maybe trying to offer a bit of tough love), but this is meant to be a wake-up call to empower yourself by owning your choices!

 

For example, when I lost my job some years ago, I could have blamed the recession, the company etc. But I didn’t. I blamed myself because I chose that profession and I could have saved more money so it wasn’t such a scary thing. I owned where I was and that day I made the decision to make a career change.

 

“Once you own that you have caused the exact spot you woke up in today, then you are able to determine the exact spot you’ll be in tomorrow.”

 

It’s not always easy to own your choices – it’s actually downright uncomfortable. But trust me, when I tell you that it’s also where the magic happens.

 

“You’re fully in control to make your life awesome…or to make it difficult. It’s your choice.”

 

Start owning your choices TODAY and create the life YOU want. 

In This Episode You Will Learn: 

What empowerment hack can help you create the life you want Why it’s important to own our own choices How to recognize who’s responsible for your current situation

49: If You REALLY Understood Abundance

Aug 24, 2017 07:30

Description:

 

These days we’ve been hearing a lot about having an abundance mindset. Many claim to have it, but they still don’t seem to be “winning.” My two cents? Many people don’t truly understand the meaning of the word.

“If you truly understand abundance, the excitement, not the stress, would keep you up at night.”

Many don’t get that if they truly understood what abundance meant, 90% of their problems would potentially go away. And this mindset doesn’t just apply to finances. It’s also about leaving a bad relationship because you know there’s a better one out there. It’s leaving your soul-sucking job because you know you can and will level up. You have a hard-wired belief that even if you lose everything, you know how to get it back (and often more).

“There is no ceiling other than the one we put on ourselves.”

Truly understanding abundance means that there’s enough to go around for everyone. It means the more you give, the more you get back – in all ways.

So why don’t we understand? Did we miss Abundance 101? No! We’ve just been programmed to only see scarcity from a young age. Whether it be our parents (even though they were well intentioned) or the media (Buy NOW before it’s gone!), we’ve been taught that everything goes away if we don’t act now.

So, I challenge YOU to understand abundance and put an end to that lack mentality. 

“I challenge you to ask why others keep winning while you follow the rules and can’t seem to get ahead.”

 

Question what you’ve done up to this point, and be open to brand new mindsets if you want something different than you have today. 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

Why a lack mindset can be linked to the absence of abundance How you are either attracting lack or abundance How the abundance mindset applies to relationships, money, career and more

47: The TRUTH About RESOURCEFULNESS

Aug 17, 2017 06:28

Description:

 

If you’ve been listening to my podcast, you know I want everyone to succeed. And what’s more, I love it when a person’s success is created by a no-excuses ability to succeed. Does that trait describe you?

 

It’s no coincidence that many of my podcast guests possess this same trait. Many have hit rock bottom only to become multi-millionaires later on. How were they able to do this? They turned the few assets they had into full-fledged resources. They were resourceful with what they had!

 

“It’s not how many resources you have, it’s your resourcefulness that determines your ability to succeed.”

 

While some people are just “given” resources because they have the money to put behind it, I find that sometimes these are the people who end up failing. The stakes aren’t as high and they’re not as personally invested in the business or project. They’re not concerned with the seemingly little things. My resourceful friends think a little differently – they see every seed (big or small) as something BIG.

 

“Resourcefulness means you are able to find any little thing that other people might overlook and turn it into something big.”

 

Whether it’s Googling, working two jobs and saving the money or getting to know the right people, you are fully equipped to create the level of resourcefulness that translates into massive success (however you define it). It’s simply a matter of planting the seeds, nurturing them and watching them turn into your dreams.

 

“When you fully grasp the idea that it’s all about how resourceful you are instead of what resources you have, that’s when you are fully empowered to know that your success is in your own hands.”

 

How resourceful are you?

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

The difference between resources and resourcefulness Why having resources doesn’t guarantee success How to turn your resourcefulness into resources

45: There Will Always be PAIN, CHOOSE the one the PAYS

Aug 10, 2017 08:42

Description:

My Two Cents – Ep. 45 – There Will Always Be Pain. Choose the One That Pays.

 

My Two Cents today is all about pain and choosing the better type of pain in all areas of your life.

 

Isn’t “better pain” an oxymoron? Well, it can be, but let me explain. There are two different types of pain in life – the kind that keeps us stuck or the kind that propels us forward. This episode is all about choosing the latter.

 

“There’s always going to be some type of pain, so choose the one that pays better.”

 

Take working out for example. Sure, working out can cause pain. You’re literally tearing your muscle fibers so your muscle grows. All that sweat and soreness is the pain. Lori and I work out regularly, so we’re choosing the type of pain that helps us grow. If we didn’t work out, we would trade that pain for the opposite – disease, weight gain, low energy etc. Either way equals pain, but one offers a reward.

 

The same goes for your financial wealth and abundance. Many are unknowingly choosing to struggle financially by playing the victim for their circumstances (It’s not fair…etc.). Similarly, many can choose the pain of self-judgment, knowing they are capable of so much more but not doing it. It’s time to start getting uncomfortable.

 

“You’re always going to have aches and pains, so let them be pains that give you a life of joy to offset them.”

 

You’re never choosing to be pain-free, but you can choose the pain of struggle or the pain of growth. It’s so important to choose the right kind of pain, but many of us are choosing wrong. Why?

 

“It’s easier to choose the type of pain we’re already familiar with then it is to choose the type of pain that’s unknown.”

 

So I say, choose the unknown. Take that leap. Step into your power and consciously choose the RIGHT set of pains. If you do, the payoff will be well worth it.

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How consciously choosing the right sets of pains can propel you forward How to step out of your comfort zone Why some people are choosing to struggle financially without even knowing it How to step into your power

44: How Wealth Allows This POWERHOUSE WOMAN to be a "Volunteer CEO" with Candy Nelson

Aug 7, 2017 42:32

Description:

Candy Nelson – Episode 44 – How Wealth Allows This Powerhouse Woman to Be a "Volunteer CEO"

 

At the age of 15 years old, Candy Nelson had already gotten the entrepreneur bug. And it was all spurred by a 3 a.m. infomercial for some tapes (which she purchased) by Tony Robbins. Upon listening to the tapes, the longing in her soul was answered and she vowed to set goals and complete them.

 

As the child of teenage parents, Candy’s excitement wasn’t readily reciprocated, but she persisted nonetheless. With the help of her father and a small business loan, by the age of 19, she started her first business. And while it took a few years to see the rewards of it, it is now a raging success. So much so that she was able to hand over the operations and focus on the creation and operation of the nonprofit organization Animal Friends Sanctuary.

 

Through this organization, Candy is able to donate her time as the CEO and focus on causes that are near and dear to her heart – animal and at-risk kids. Her story (there is so much more to it) is so inspiring as it shows such a shining example of how wealth can do amazing things and make a massive impact on this world.

Question Highlights:

 

What was it intrinsically inside of you that made you so different as a 15-year-old that you got an idea and followed through on it?

 

How did Tony Robbin’s tapes turn you into a budding business woman?

 

How scary was it to start a first-of-its-kind business in your area?

 

Did your first business take off right away?

 

What is one of your biggest growing pains and how did you navigate through it?

 

When did you decide to walk away from the operations side of your first business?

 

How did the 15-year-old you view money and how do you view it now?

  

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

Overcoming obstacles to create a successful business at age 19

 

How to “work wealthy”

 

Why it’s so important to just start – even if you’re unsure

 

About redirecting your course when things don’t go as planned

 

How Candy was able to start and become the CEO of a nonprofit organization – and not get paid to do it

 

And so much more…

 

Christine’s Thoughts…

 

“We are not the product of our circumstances.”

 

“It was a vision – it was something I could see, feel and walk into and that was it. And I reverse-engineered from there.”

 

“When you do what’s right, things seem to work out.”

 

“Some people are so fearful looking 10 years ahead that they never start.”

 

“You’ve got to start and redirect as you go.”

 

“You never know if you can accomplish or contribute unless you start.”

 

“Does this decision take me closer to or further away from my mission and life’s purpose?”

 

“Money is going to just amplify who you already are.”

 

“The pursuit of money isn’t evil if you have good intentions.”

 

“Sometimes we have to go through the struggle to realized what our gifts are.”

 

--

 

At just 19, Candy started her first business just out of high school. A serial entrepreneur for nearly two decades, she has built a successful service-based business, developed a nationwide product-based company and invested in real estate investing since the age of 25. 

She started a non-profit organization at the age of 26. Candy has donated over 25,000 hours to that charity as a Volunteer CEO and has raised over three million dollars in the last 10 years. She is actively engaged in saving thousands of animals' lives and bringing hope and healing to abused children. 

She is passionate about encouraging others to stand up and speak out against abuse and cruelty and is committed to inspiring others to live a kinder, most compassionate life.

43: UPLEVEL Your Financial Results - Instant HACK

Aug 3, 2017 10:57

Description:

So you’ve probably heard that you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with, but I also believe that you’re also the average of the environment you hang out around most as well. That being said, I’m here to offer you some hacks to help you change that environment to change your outcome. 

While a lot of these will be no-brainers, I think you’ll also find them challenging, but stick with me. 

“At first a lot of these things will feel quite uncomfortable – that’s normal. But the goal is to do them often enough so they feel comfortable so that they can become your new environment.”

Here are a few hacks:

Travel. If you don’t travel, START! If you do travel, travel BETTER. Get a better hotel room. See what it feels like to walk into a better hotel. How are you greeted? How comfortable is the bed? Up-level your hotel experience. Same goes for flying… First Class!

 

“That extra few hundred dollars could change your level of expectations forever.”

Clothes. If you can’t afford them just try them on. Even if you don’t purchase, you are up-leveling how you look and feel.

 

“It’s not wasted money if it’s an investment in yourself that totally changes your level of expectation from here on out.”

Restaurants. Not in a place where you can spend money on that expensive of a meal? Get a drink at the bar.

 

“Change your environment – change your results.”

It’s simple. If you never experience something different, you’ll never pursue it. That’s why it is so crucial to make that S T R E T C H that truly changes your environment. It’s the change that truly counts. 

Of course we all start at different levels, so acknowledge the level you’re at and go from there, whether it’s an extra $20, $200 or $2,000. Regardless of the dollar amount, any time you bust through that uncomfortable barrier, you experience growth.

So, I encourage you… Go splurge a little. Not to hurt yourself financially, but to forever change what you expect of yourself. If you commit to that you will be amazed at the up-leveling effect it will have on all areas of your life.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

Why you are the product of the environment you hang out in How intentionally changing your environment can change your outcome How to get comfortable with the uncomfortable How to up-level your expectations of yourself

42: How Expectation Hangovers are Costing You Wealth with Christine Hassler

Jul 31, 2017 52:47

Description:

Christine Hassler – Episode 42 – How Expectation Hangovers Are Costing You Wealth

 

Today’s guest, Christine Hassler, is one of the wisest people I’ve had on my show to date and I know you’re going to learn a lot from her stories and experiences, too.

 

As a child, Christine always felt as though she didn’t belong. Growing up with some health problems, she was always seen as different and wasn’t well liked. As difficult as this was to cope with, Christine compensated for it all by focusing on being smart (an overachiever if you will) so she could be super successful. While this tactic worked for a long time, it still never eliminated the feeling that she had something to prove. So after graduating college (double major and a minor in 3.5 years), she went where a lot of people go to do just that – Hollywood. Christine didn’t want to be an actor, but she did end up being an agent.

 

Christine’s life, from the outside, was amazing – a six-figure career, a successful boyfriend, parties with celebrities etc. – but inside she was miserable and suffering from anxiety and depression. Then with the encouragement of a friend, she met a therapist who loved her unconditionally and for the first time in her life, looked at her with zero judgment. It changed her world. After seeing this therapist for some time, Christine left her successful career to pursue other passions. While at the time this seemed like an easy thing to do, it was anything but, and after multiple setbacks (boyfriend dumped her, diagnosed with an auto immune disorder, massive debt etc.), she still didn’t know what to do with her life.

 

Throughout this time of struggle, Christine had to seek what it was she truly wanted and she discovered that it was to serve and share her experiences with others. So, she decided to write a book about her own challenges and experiences and getting through them. And that’s when her first book, Expectation Hangover was born. Christine has since published several other books and now coaches individuals and hosts multiple courses.

 

This is the perfect episode for those who are feeling lost and looking for answers or trying to cope with disappointment and unexpected life events. I know I personally had a few mind-blowing a-ha moments throughout our talk and would love to hear if you had any moments of clarity, too.

41: How to Instantly Change Your Abundance Story

Jul 27, 2017 13:19

Description:

 

What’s your abundance story? Are you happy with where you’re at? Or do you operate from a place of lack? If you’re the latter, it’s time to change things up.

 

As you learned from my previous mini episode, we’re ALL entitled to abundance, but we’re not guaranteed it. That means, when it comes to your own abundance story, it’s up to YOU to make the decisions.

 

So first off, you’re the one who sets the finish line. Realize that it’s a subjective decision as to what your abundance story us. You are radically abundant right now. You just may be choosing to see your current level of abundance as a lack of abundance because of how you’re choosing to define it.

 

“Abundance is nothing more than an opinion or feeling. You determine what it is to you.”

 

For example, let’s say you make $50K a year, and you’re not feeling abundant because you feel like you’re not making a lot of money until you hit $100K. That lack of abundance you feel is on you. You’re the one who created that definition of abundance and you’re unable to recognize the abundance in the $50K that you already make. The same goes for the person making $100K who feels a lack because they’re not making half a million… See where I’m going with this?

 

“You can’t be pissed off if you don’t feel abundant, because you’re the one who set the finish line.”

 

You must recognize that you’re the one in control of how you define abundance and appreciate the abundance you already have.

 

To help, I encourage you to start a gratitude practice. Personally, every morning I start my day with a positive mantra. Mine and my wife’s is: “I am happier, healthier, wealthier, and more fit than I was yesterday.” Then, I do a quick prayer of gratitude – expressing thanks for all the big and little things in my life in that moment. After all, when you’re appreciative of what you already have and you’re feeling abundance, you’re going to attract more abundance.

 

Lastly, know that your abundance story is just that – a story. This story is nothing but ONE interpretation of the events in your life.

 

“The events aren’t fiction, but the meaning you put on them is pure fiction. Nothing has meaning other than the meaning you apply to it.”

 

So do your best to change the events, people or choices that downgrade your abundance story. Choose well! Consciously choose to see the positive over the negative.

 

“Choose a level of abundance so big that others benefit from it as well.”

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

How to create a more rewarding abundance story Why your abundance story is really a subjective decision How to take control of and appreciate the abundance you already have Why having a gratitude practice is so important

40: The Million Dollar Wedding Photographer - BRANDING EXPERT Jenna Kutcher

Jul 24, 2017 53:28

Description:

After studying corporate business and graduating from college, small-town Wisconsin girl, Jenna Kutcher, landed her dream job (or at least she thought) in a large Midwest-based corporation. Unfortunately, her dreams of wearing heels and a business suit morphed into wearing khaki and red – and was far from glamorous. She knew there had to be something more in store for her.

 

Enter in the $300 Craig’s List camera. Jenna started taking pictures, enjoying the learning process and sharing her captures online. People started to notice her talent and asked if she would take pictures for them. And so it began, she booked 25 weddings without ever shooting one. A year later, she was doing so well that she was able to leave her corporate job and began photographing weddings full time.

 

Her photography soon developed into a focus and love for branding. She connected so deeply with her brides and wanted to make their personal visions come to life. This love, and let’s be honest, branding genius, quickly turned into a six-figure business. Having found such success personally, she was confused when she learned that others in wedding photography were struggling. Seeing the need, Jenna began to teach others what she’d learned.

 

Since then, her photography and branding business has skyrocketed to a seven-figure business (and growing) all based on this founding concept of generosity. From free content and blogs to merchandise and online training courses, Jenna wants everyone to find the same success she has. And she does it all from a place of authenticity, sharing the honest highs and lows of her life and business.

Question Highlights:

 

How have you taken a very common industry and turned it into a seven-figure entrepreneurial endeavor?

 

How did you book 25 weddings without ever shooting one?

 

Do a lot of artists, in general, suffer from limiting money mindsets? Did you always have a strong money mindset?

 

What does it take to stand out as a wedding photographer?

 

Where did your drive and high standard of performance come from?

 

What do we need to know to build a bigger and more engaged audience on IG?

How Jenna’s wedding photography (and branding expertise) began.

 

Helpful (but simple) tips that launched Jenna’s wedding photography business.

 

How to be resourceful without a ton of money.

And so much more…

 

 

Jenna’s Thoughts…

 

“I landed in the dream job – and it wasn’t a dream.”

 

“Anyone can go out and do their work for free so they have work to show for it.”

 

“I believe we should get paid to do what we love.”

 

“We try to guess what people will be willing to pay for our products or services instead of trusting that we can speak directly to the people who will see our worth and value – and pay full value.”

 

“Time is my motivator. Money is not. Money is just a measure of how I’m doing with my time.”

 

“The more vulnerable I’ve been, the more I’ve aligned myself with the right people.”

 

“People start to recognize you not just by what you do, but by who you are.”

 

“I teach the what and the why, and then I offer the how.”

 

“When you hire a team that thinks the best of you, that believes in you, that gets behind you, it’s the most incredible thing you can do for yourself, for your sanity and for your business.”

 

“Whenever my life hits the fan, my business booms!”

39: Finally UNLOCK The ABUNDANCE You Desire by Answering This Question

Jul 20, 2017 08:38

Description:

Do you know why you haven’t chased down that radical wealth and abundance that you KNOW you’re entitled to and capable of earning? Get ready, it’s time for a deep-dive into your mind!

 

I can tell you from personal experience, that it’s one of the worst feelings to know that you can do something, but you’re not doing it! But the good news is that you can begin to eliminate these feelings by asking ONE question that can help unlock the answers as to why you haven’t followed through on your pursuit of this abundance wealth.

 

“Who/what is it serving by you holding back on your quest for wealth and abundance?”

 

Are your wheels turning? We’ve all been stuck before (yes, me too) because we’re serving someone or something instead of rising to the occasion, going out and getting that abundance. Stop playing SMALL! For instance, you’re not serving your business when you don’t make those sales calls that take your business to another level – you’re serving fear.

 

Same goes for people… You don’t DARE make more money than those in your group of friends, because that would make them uncomfortable, right? Guess who you’re serving? Hint, it’s not you! Take responsibility for you and get after it.

 

“You are entitled – not guaranteed – to make the choices to be abundant and wealthy.”

 

You must become unapologetic when it comes to your abundance and wealth. Until you do, you’re not going to realize what you’re capable of earning, doing or creating. Trust me, I KNOW this can be extremely uncomfortable, but it’s more uncomfortable to know that you’re capable of doing something so much bigger, but you’re anchored because you’re afraid of making someone or something different than it is today.

 

Know that you’re not the only one who feels that way, and if you have to, borrow some faith from a friend and make it into your own. I promise that once you’re able to move past this who or what isn’t serving, that’s when everything starts coming together and abundance appears. 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

About ridding your life of things or people that aren’t serving you

About why it’s dangerous to choose temporary safe zones over abundance

How to become unapologetic when it comes to wealth and abundance

About the importance of accepting change and getting comfortable with the uncomfortable

38: How This Soul-Fueled CEO Quickly got her Business to SKYROCKET with Amber Lilyestrom

Jul 17, 2017 46:02

Description:

Everyone, meet Amber Lilyestrom, a fellow entrepreneur and passionate soul who left a successful career to make a bigger impact and fulfill her soul’s higher calling, which has since allowed her to pour more of her time and soul into her family. She now enjoys pushing herself beyond her human limits and mindset roadblocks that inevitably pop up along the way – all to be the BEST version of who she was born to be. 

What I love the most about this mompreneur’s mission and story is that she’s done all of this to help others create businesses that align more with who they are. Amber wants everyone to lead the happiest and most fulfilling life through “coming home to their truth.” And she loves to facilitate that process.

“I’ve always wanted to empower people to embrace and accept themselves because I never did.” 

Of course, the above is rarely a straight path, and that’s why Amber is so transparent about the challenges she’s faced and continues to face (mostly her own limiting beliefs that made her question her personal value). Through her own experiences, she is able to whole-heartedly encourage others to take that leap and use what they have (or don’t have) to their advantage. 

“Action builds belief.”

This podcast is a must-listen for all those who feel that pull on their souls to do something bigger and more true to themselves. It is my hope that by the end of this episode that your soul is fueled, ready to make an impact in your own unique way.

“When I invest in me, it is the greatest investment I will ever make in this lifetime because it pays in dividends exponentially.”

 

Question Highlights:

 

How were you taught to view money? What actions are you taking right now to overcome challenges? When did you start your business? How did you make the transition from your existing career to your own business? What has changed since your business started that has allowed your business to grow so quickly? What has been the best investment you’ve made so far? What role has generosity played in your life/business? What are some of the BS reasons that hold other mom’s back from pursuing their calling? 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

How Amber overcame her limiting money mindset beliefs. Why there is more than enough time in your day to fulfill your soul’s purpose. Why it’s so important to teach what you’ve already went through. How the role of generosity plays in Amber’s life and business. Why you are good enough RIGHT NOW to go after your soul’s calling. How stepping into your own truth and doing the work that’s in alignment with your soul’s purpose can make the world a better place. And so much more…

 

Amber’s Thoughts…

“Our bank accounts and our bodies are really truly these beautiful mirrors for where we are at with our relationships and ourselves.”

“We must operate at a higher level and clear the space and clutter that’s not making us feel good in order to become the master visionaries, creators and leaders that we are.”

“The more I honor what I feel called to and what I am the very best at, the more abundance and goodness there is in my business, bank account, how my body feels and relationships.”

“I will always bet on myself.”

“Give people permission to be who they are.” 

“By you stepping into your truth and doing the work that’s in alignment with your soul’s purpose and calling, you are making the world a better place. When you don’t do that, and shut the door out of fear, then you shut the door on the expansion and growth of mankind.”

37: Fuc#*ng Google It!

Jul 13, 2017 07:10

Description:

 

First off, pardon my French, but I really felt the need for an emphasis, a real punch-in-the-gut phrase to drive this episode’s message home.

One of my recent pet peeves (that completely blows my mind) is when people say they don’t know how to do something or how to get started. I politely call BS!

“We live in the easiest time to start a business and thrive that there has ever been.” 

Information is abundant and it’s at our fingertips – you just have to effing Google it! If you want to learn how to launch an eCourse – Google it! You will no doubt find tons of information – videos, step-by-step tutorials – you name it. 

“There’s not a single thing you can’t learn on Google.”

Now I’m not saying all of the things you find are going to be your best answer (perhaps leave surgery for a REAL surgeon?), however it is so FREEING! You no longer have to let this notion stop you in your tracks. And let’s be honest, in this day and age, if you’re not making progress in your business because you don’t know how, you’re just letting fear win.

“You’re driving that fear train to victimhood.”

Stop being a victim and letting fear win. Don’t be afraid to take that step forward. Give up the comfort of playing the victim and asking for someone to help you. Again, I’m not saying any of this to be mean – I simply care about my listeners and want them to wake up!

Three takeaways from this episode:

Wake up and realize that you can do ANYTHING! If you didn’t know before, all of the answers are on Google. Take action. Don’t allow limiting beliefs or fear to slow you down.

Don’t live behind the shield of “I don’t know how” or “I couldn’t find the help.” Sure, it’s comfortable and that’s because most of society goes along with that mentality, but it’s NOT the truth.

The truth is if you want to do something…you can fuc#*ing Google it.

36: From Gang Member to Multi Millionaire with Ryan Blair

Jul 10, 2017 58:20

Description:

Even though my guest today, Ryan Blair, is known for being one of the most successful entrepreneurs out there, you wouldn’t know it by his humble, surprised attitude with that title.

Ryan’s success story alone will have you believing that you too can do anything if your mind is wired right. Oh, and you’ll likely discover that you’re already a mathematician – you just don’t know it yet. 

Early on in his life, the cards were stacked against Ryan. Coming from a broken home with an abusive father, he never finished high school, and at the age of 14 he was witness to the tragic murder of the girl who gave him his first kiss. Soon after, he was forced into a gang. And while this could have been the move that led to his demise, it instead taught him the essential survival skills needed to succeed as an entrepreneur on the streets.

Some years later with a successful street career in motion, Ryan realized that he now had a choice – he could be successful either on the streets – or off. He chose to apply his entrepreneurial success off the streets. With the ability to experience both sides and looking back, he is truly grateful that he was “wired right.” Ryan attributes that to stating what he wanted and using reverse engineering (math) to get to where he is today.

“You can do your programming and wiring to get exactly where you want to be – you just have to figure it out and reverse engineer it.”

See, I told you you’d get to do some math! For example, Ryan raised money, he borrowed money, asked for investments – he did what it took to get him where he wanted to be. After listening to this podcast you’ll hear the passion in his voice when he talks about these very actions as he believes EVERYONE can become a successful entrepreneur (yes, you too) and it’s just a matter of figuring out the formula so you can use math to do it. 

“The path is the math. There is a mathematical formula. You just have to put in the work to do it.”

Ryan stresses that you always have a choice. Even if you feel like you can’t go into medicine because you’re not a doctor, you CAN! But first, make a decision and become self-aware. Then align yourself with the right people to get you there and have an appetite for learning. Absorb everything you can from the people who you want to emulate. Take their best qualities and implement them in your life. What’s even better is if you can also find the sweet spot of living your dreams and also creating wealth.

“If you have a great life-work integration, you can have a great, happy life.”

Don’t let the societal norms tell you what you can and can’t do. A software engineer by training, Ryan knows he’s not a conventionally trained mathematician, but he’s made himself into one. He personally thrives on the challenge of people telling him he can’t do things. You just need to not care what other people think. I dare you to challenge him and see what happens! ;) It’s just another example of his passion and drive to do more good things in this world through his success.

I love Ryan’s take on money as he equates it to the amount of projects he’s able to take on. The more money he makes, the more projects he can start and the more people he can help. This is the exact mentality that my podcast encourages… the more we have, the more we can GIVE to others. And that’s exactly what Ryan is setting out to do. 

He is passionate about supporting, serving and building up a family of entrepreneurs who he can do business with for the rest of his life (be sure to check out is entrepreneur in residence training at hashtagone.com). This includes all different varieties of people, businesses etc.

Ryan is out to transform billions of peoples’ lives and make a massive impact. And I have no doubt that his actions will leave a lasting legacy for years to come.

35: Our Single Greatest Overhead

Jul 6, 2017 08:32

Description:

 

For the last handful of years or so, I’ve had a phrase/mantra that I’ve repeated to myself over and over: 

“Ego is our greatest overhead.”

I attribute a large part of my wife and I’s financial abundance to this very phrase (it will be my next tattoo – hold me to it). There was a time not that long ago that my ego drove a lot of my decisions, in turn costing me…I don’t even want to know how much money and potential partnerships. There were so many missed opportunities because my ego sensed fear.

Yep, when we feel any type of fear – judgment, failure, not being accepted or success – ego slams on the brakes and “saves the day” before we do something really stupid and embarrass ourselves. But here’s the thing… 

“Your ego isn’t programmed to choose the types of risks and decisions that are needed to achieve massive financial abundance.”  

Speaking of finances, your ego will also encourage you to make bad decisions so you look successful instead of being successful. And who will want to help you if you already look like you know what you’re doing? 

“You’ll never get ahead while you’re pretending to be ahead.”  

So what do you do to calm your ego? Good news, it’s simple really (albeit challenging now and then). Recognize it (or often someone points it out to you). Once you’re aware, it’s just a matter of catching it in the act, recognizing it and reframing it.

Once you’re free of your ego, you’ll find that everything flows faster – relationships, income, happiness, opportunities, sales etc. And we could use a little more abundance and little less ego, right?

34: Getting Past FEAR: From Broke in the Desert to a $30 Million Business with Marshall Morris

Jul 3, 2017 01:00:13

Description:

Marshall Morris – Episode 34 – Getting Past FEAR: From Broke in the Desert to a $30 Million Business

I must say that this interview is one of my favorite interviews to date because internet marketing ninja, Marshall Morris, kept surprising me with his down to earth, get-it-done attitude, generosity and life and business insights. Did I mention that when he started out, the only internet skill he knew was checking his email? More on that later… First let’s talk about how his career began.

As the son of a hard-working, humble pastor, Marshall was taught early on the value of a hard day’s work. In fact, at a young age, his father would “loan” him out for the weekend to different farmers he did business with to help out (for very little pay). This weekend help wasn’t about making money, however, his father really just wanted to instill in him the value of working hard.

And it’s with this same mentality that his dad encouraged Marshall to attend college, but also informed him that it would be his responsibility to pay his own way – as that’s the way he did it. Growing up in an impoverished family, his dad worked hard to pay for his college while attending so he’d never have to take out a loan.

Not deterred by this, Marshall joined the military so his schooling could be paid for as he went. He never thought he would be deployed, but then 9/11 happened. Obviously, while deployed Marshall couldn’t attend college so instead he read a lot of books (12 hours a night for a year) so he could continue at least some type of education.

Among those books, he found that those focused on business resonated with him the most, and upon returning from his deployment he took it from there. Admittedly having more of a sales mindset from the beginning, he dabbled in real estate but gradually got out of it when the market took a turn.

After returning from being deployed, Marshall was presented with the opportunity to help a friend of a friend with advertising sales on an automotive site that was struggling. Knowing very little about the internet, but feeling that this business could go somewhere, he offered to partner with this person. Their goal was to just make some money, make it a success and figure out the sales and marketing along the way with “Google university.” Eventually the company started doing well, and they sold it to a bigger automotive company.

It was through networking that he met his now business partner, Justin, who was in internet marketing. Having only a Facebook page, he enlisted the help of Marshall. Both found that their strengths and weaknesses balanced each other and they created the business I Heart Dogs. And the rest is history with other businesses such as I Heart Cats, I Heart Birds (and many more).

Marshall and business partner, Justin, excel at building business models and then using those models anywhere. For them and their current niche, they’ve found that the more they do, the more they find opportunity (and who wouldn’t want that?). But how did they build this brand/model to be so successful in the first place?

Marshall states that it comes down to authenticity.

“People want something that’s authentic. We crave authenticity in a world that’s so fake.”

That’s why Marshall’s business makes it a point to give back to the communities they serve. Particularly with the I Heart Dogs mission, they built a program that would help feed dogs without homes or in shelters (so far they’ve fed 8 million dogs in 24 months). They aim to be as transparent and as authentic as possible.

“We see numbers, but they’re people like us with needs and desires.”

Marshall attributes more of their success to the fact that people want to feel good about their purchases AND who they’re buying from. The more authentic you can be, the more you’re going to attract people. And when you do this you’re giving context to your conversation with your customer. To Marshall, it’s more than just selling a product, it’s about showing customers opportunities and making them feel like they’re part of a movement. When you’re talking openly and not just about revenue-oriented topics you build the communities/followers to go with it.

And when you get people to be a part of something and feel good about it becomes a part of their identity, too. 

That’s why Marshall and his business are so passionate about encouraging others to free themselves and achieve their dreams as well. Naming fear as the biggest limiter, he acknowledges that fear is always going to be around.

“You never get rid of your fear, you just battle it.”

The more complicated life and business gets, the more things come at you and the more people break down. You can’t escape it, so you need people to support you.

“Fear isn’t a fact, it’s an emotion.”

Marshall is grateful to have his wife as his rock and main support person along with his family. Often times, when things get stressful, it’s a matter of taking a few days off to reboot and spend time with them.

One crucial time in Marshall and his wife’s lives is what they like to call their “time in the desert.” He had hit rock bottom… going from making hundreds of thousands of dollars to $7 an hour building garages. He had become complacent, not understanding how to balance an abundance of money and lost control of his financial situation. While building these garages and going through this “drought,” Marshall realized he needed to be around people who were going places, growing etc. in order to change his mindset.

Having formerly undervalued his worth, he suffered from what a friend called the “poor boy mindset.” This is someone who feels bad asking for a return on the value they provide, assuming that their value isn’t as high as another. Marshall had to go through a major value SHIFT.

“The whole point of building anything is to create value and capitalize on it. Period. Whatever that looks like. And you’ve got to be able to ask for as much as you create.”

So, Marshall started to rebuild, and a large part of that was again surrounding himself with good people who were going somewhere and who helped him survive and grow. But that was only one part of it. He still had to make the effort to make the connections. Whatever you build manifests outside of you.

“What’s down in the well will come up in the bucket.”

If you’re having trouble finding these people, Marshall suggests to keep things simple. Don’t overcomplicate it – just ask someone to have a cup of coffee with you. Have 3-4 really good questions ready. And then, make it a part of your weekly schedule. You may be investing $5 in a cup of coffee, but he guarantees that you’re receiving a heck of a lot more in value.

I love that Marshall offers this simple advice. It’s just one more way that he GIVES back. And likely it’s because he’s always been motivated to solve a problem and loves a challenge (he’s a bit competitive). ;) Both Marshall and his wife both love being able to do things for people as well… They’ve been through so many similar situations and because of this, they can feel the emotions and have soft spots for anyone experiencing the same or something similar.

“The world needs more generous people with money.”

Marshall is committed to building more profitable businesses that make an impact. He loves seeing businesses that have mastered the balance between giving and business. And it’s amazing when a business can be both genuine and generous while changing people’s lives. 

After all, Marshall clarifies… it’s not about him or his company. It’s a mission to GIVE back, and if you give, that value will come back to you. For example, when Marshall and his wife have felt called to give, every time they have received MORE back. It was never the plan, but that’s what tends to happen.

Marshall goes on to say that he believes money is a great tool when it’s used genuinely to make positive change in the world.

“The world needs people who are ruthlessly unafraid to step out and do what it takes to make change where they feel like they need to make change.”  

We all make impacts and help in different ways whether you’re a craftsman, a musician etc. – so own it! Even if that skillset is making and managing money. 

“If you’re in a place where you’re genuine about what you do and how you operate, there’s no reason to apologize for that skillset.”

You’ve been put on this earth with a set of unique gifts, so PLEASE follow Marshall’s advice and don’t let anyone keep you from YOUR vision. Money is a GOOD thing there’s good intention behind its use. Never, never apologize for the gifts you were born with.

33: COMFORTABLE is the CRACK to which we are ADDICTED

Jun 29, 2017 10:17

Description:

 

The title kind of makes you think, doesn’t it? Maybe you think I’ve completely lost it, but it makes perfect sense. Often times our desire to stay comfortable is why we haven’t reached goals or the abundance we long for. So many of us are addicted to that feeling that place of being comfortable and it keeps us treading water in the same spot. 

“That comfort drives every single decision we make…or don’t make.”

Think about that… The comfort that you think is so great is keeping you at a certain level. As the famous saying goes from Jim Collins goes, “Good is the enemy of great.” How often do we just do things to “get by?” Or if we are taking massive action, it’s usually to avoid pain.

But how often does that drive to do more last once that threat of that pain is gone? (Hint: not long!) Take your workouts… How often are you pushing yourself when you’ve already put in a “good enough” workout? How about your pay? Are you making enough to just pay the bills, but not so much to create an abundance? You’ve likely hit the comfort zone. You’re not taking risks because there’s fear you may fail, lose money or injure yourself. They’re all excuses that you’ve fooled yourself into believing. But I’ve got news for you…

“If you work hard to protect what you currently have, then that’s all you’ll ever get.”

Ask most successful people and you’ll find that they gave up the “good enough” mentality long ago. They’ve failed time and time again, but they continued on. They worked when they didn’t feel like it. They invested when they didn’t have the money to invest. They sold their “comforts” so they could achieve their dreams and they constantly walk that fine line between success and failure. There are no guarantees, but we all have to make our peace with that.

So how do you change this mindset? Simply put, change what you consider to be comfortable. Don’t seek comfort in the same places. If that means associating with different people do it. If you know certain people are going to sabotage your efforts, steer clear. But never doubt your capacity for abundance. When the pain is too great, you will choose to seek a different destination of comfortable.

“You were put here with a certain set of gifts to do something incredible enough to be abundantly wealthy.”

Never forget it. You never know who needs those gifts.

32: How to Become a SOCIAL MEDIA CELEBRITY by GIVING with Amanda Bucci

Jun 26, 2017 54:03

Description:

 

It’s not often that you hear of successful entrepreneurs who never actually planned to be an entrepreneur. And that’s just one of the reasons why I’m so excited to share with you my conversation with YouTube star and “accidental entrepreneur,” Amanda Bucci.

It all began as Amanda was finishing up her nursing degree in college. With an ongoing interest and passion for fitness, she decided to track her fitness progress by creating an Instagram account. Without any expectations of a following, out of nowhere she had 15,000 followers. So how did she attract these people? Through GIVING!

As many of you know, when you post progress pictures, your workout routine, your thoughts etc., you’re going to get questions about how you were able to achieve your results. And with her spirit of generosity, Amanda felt called to respond back (paragraphs at a time) because she genuinely wanted to help. There was no money being made at this point, but that soon changed.

Building a reputation as a coach, Amanda soon started taking one-on-one clients in addition to waitressing. Add studying for nursing exams and Amanda was maxed out. To free up time, Amanda decided to ditch the waitressing and create and sell an ebook. There wasn’t a plan, just a vision and the desire to help others (and help herself as well if she could). Her first ebook, The Ins and Outs of Tracking Your Macros was a huge success and she found in addition to her coaching clients, she was making enough money to cover her living expenses with a little extra.

With a nursing career still in sight, Amanda struggled. She didn’t have the desire or extra time to study. Her passion for nursing had transitioned to fitness. Nonetheless, Amanda followed through, took the registered nurse exams and…didn’t pass. A common occurrence, Amanda scheduled to take the test again, but when the time came take it again, she decided against it. It was time to take her fitness career to the next level (at this point she had already made $50,000 in just six short months!).

Amanda took on more clients, started providing more content and kept sharing on Instagram and YouTube. So how did she do it in a world FULL of social media fitness stars?

Amanda advises to not get discouraged by the amount of people who are doing something similar. There are so many people who need YOUR special message and guidance.

“People want to connect with people. It’s not just the information that people are seeking.”

Amanda feels that people buy things because they like the person they’re buying a particular product/program from. 

“You can still shine your personality through your content in a way that makes you stand out and makes you unique.”  

If someone else is doing something similar…great! But know that you have the power to make it better, different and MORE valuable. A game-changer for Amanda has been her practice of being transparent in so many areas of her life. It’s about giving people a first-hand look into your life… Share your struggles, what you’re feeling and what you’re doing. The more you share, the more successful your community/following will be. 

Being so new to entrepreneurship, throughout her recent experiences, Amanda had never really thought about her long-term financial and impact goals. 

“I was focused on growth. I was focused on being better every single day and providing valuable content.”

Realizing she needed to seek outside help for her business, she joined Lewis Howe’s Mastermind group (where we actually first met). Amanda has learned so much from him and other fellow entrepreneurs about what she wants the future of her business to look like. And one thing that was inevitable, she needed to offer more products and unapologetically charge for them.

While this was difficult at first, Amanda realized that charging someone often guarantees more success, because people are held more accountable. She also reflects that it’s refreshing to know the value of what you’re offering. For example, her new high-ticket coaching services are offered at a higher price point than she’s ever done before. And while fear and doubt creep, in she had the a-ha moment of: 

“I was able to give so much more because I didn’t feel resentful toward the price that I charged.”

And guess what, the coaching services were a success! This doesn’t mean you’re not going to have nay-sayers who accuse you of manipulating or “scamming” people, but at the heart of your business, you know what you’re providing. And don’t forget, there’s always the block and delete buttons, which Amanda has become more comfortable using. ;)

As long as you’re providing (aka giving!) value to your audience (and some free content, too), you have just as good of a chance as anyone to build a successful business.

31: Abundance Hack - Are You Confusing the Universe

Jun 22, 2017 08:33

Description:

My Two Cents – Ep. 31 – Abundance Hack – Are You Confusing the Universe?

Have you ever wanted something, thought about it incessantly, only to proclaim at a later time that you don’t? What if I told you that that action alone could be preventing you from multiple things – from a car to a successful business?

“Everything you do, say and think is manifesting something physical. It’s creating a result.”

Any hands up in agreement? I’m guessing I have a few skeptics. So before you think I’m getting all “woo-woo” on you, let me frame it from two different perspectives.

No. 1 – If you’re a believer in the Law of Attraction, you understand and likely support this theory. Your energy attracts other like energy.

No. 2 – You either don’t believe in this theory or you’re just unsure of it – and that’s OK! What I have to say will still resonate because what you think and say directly affects your subconscious and what you do (and how it affects your financial results).

When your thoughts and statements are contradicting one another – you are ultimately holding yourself back. Let me give you an example… In your heart, you like nice things, but when you’re talking to your friends, you tell them that you don’t. Or you would love a new luxurious car, but again, you downplay it by saying it doesn’t matter, you just want to have a car that “gets you from point A to point B.”

If this sounds familiar to you, you’re not alone! Everyone, at one time or another, has done this very thing. We do it to fit in or justify where we’re at in life in this very moment. But ultimately, your mixed messages are confusing the hell out of the Universe.

“When you tell these little lies to feel happy for 30 seconds, they’re actually robbing you of lasting happiness for years to come.”

And you may be turning away future success, too. I mean, what successful person is going to want to partner or help someone who doesn’t welcome/attract success themselves?

It’s not until we start to live more unapologetically and make a habit of being honest with ourselves (and those around us) that we will start manifesting what we want in our financial picture. 

Let’s start getting you what you really want by giving the Universe a clear message.

30: Everything You've Wanted to Know About LEADERSHIP with Steve Farber

Jun 19, 2017 59:11

Description:

One would never know that the highly successful leadership expert and author, Steve Farber once dreamed of becoming a musician – playing guitar, writing songs – the whole bit. 

Those dreams, however, were put to the side when he soon realized that supporting a family and music didn’t mesh well together at the time. So, he gave up the idea of a career in music and began his search for a job. Fortunately, he had a friend who had an investment business and he offered to take him on and show him the ropes.

A few successful years later, Steve opened his own company – and found that he had become an entrepreneur. He soon realized though that despite running a thriving business, he hated it. Witnessing people inevitably lose money took a toll on his heart, because he genuinely cared about people – he wanted to help them.

Realizing he could do more, he got out. Instead, Steve decided to take his business background, along with his passion for human beings, and combine them to start doing training, facilitation and consulting work. Along the way, Steve also discovered that he was also passionate about leadership. He made it his mission to help people grow into their own extreme leadership.

While an expert in the field of leadership, Steve still has his checks and balances when it comes to either speaking at events or other training courses. Years ago, an attendee at one of his events about authenticity questioned if Steve was actually modeling what he was speaking about. That hit him hard. Was he truly speaking from his heart or just doing all the “right” things? Reeling from this comment, he sought out the advice from a mentor, Terry Pierce, and he had some simple but valuable advice. First, you’re never going to connect with everybody. But specifically with the man who questioned Steve’s authenticity, it was important to 

“Assume he was right and go from there.”

Take a moment to see if there’s some truth. Whatever the answer, know that you can only learn and grow into a better leader.

So what makes a great leader? Steve strongly feels that leadership has nothing to do with your position or title. It’s not just about looking out for yourself and stepping on other people as you go.

“The greatest leaders are the ones who invest themselves in other people’s success. There’s a generosity of spirit and in what they give.”

Not limited to money, this includes sharing time, energy, contacts and so much more. Extreme leaders, as Steve likes to call them, do it because it’s the right thing to do. It’s about implementing a spirit of inclusiveness in addition to the structure of it. You can still have that hierarchy within a company and still function in an inclusive way. Real leaders are committed to changing at least their piece of the world for the better and making radical leaps (not coincidentally the name of one of his books) in love, energy, audacity and proof.

As you likely guessed, this isn’t the status quo way of thinking (but Steve and I would love it to be). So what do you do when there’s opposition? What if you’re the minority in a situation? Steve coaches that it’s all about finding your center of gravity. What do you love about the work you’re doing? Where’s your heart in this? Your values? 

“If your heart’s not in it, you’re not likely to take a stand.”


Whether you’re against the status quo or right alongside it, Steve advises that you must make the decision to LEAD. Keep in mind that it’s OK to say no. It’s perfectly acceptable as long as you’re making the decision consciously and being aware of the “oh shit! moments (OS!M).

“If the only reason you’re not doing something is because the idea scares you, that’s the reason to do it.”

Let fear be your guide. Sometimes that fear actual means, “I should proceed, not retreat.”

Pretty soon, you’ll be seeking out those OS!Ms, and that’s ideal because it means you’re always growing! Because sometimes,

“It’s the love that gets us to step up and take action, and the OS!M is often the experience of taking the action.”

Steve acknowledges that there are several different types of leaders/entrepreneurs out there and along with that different works styles. Some people work the standard 40+ hours a week and others boast a 4-hour workday. His take on it? “To each their own.” At the end of the day, if you’re creating and accomplishing what YOU intend to do, it doesn’t matter how you do it. On the flip side, however, if you’re not reaching your goals, you may have to adjust.

When it comes to “work” in general, be it as an entrepreneur or in corporate America, Steve believes that all of it’s good. Not everyone is wired to be an entrepreneur, just like not everyone is wired to work for someone else. To Steve, the problem lies in the work atmosphere.

“We should be changing the nature of what it means to go to work – wherever it is.”

Even if it’s mundane work, if you love the people and the company you work for, why shouldn’t it be a joyful experience? 

Extending on that point a bit further, Steve firmly believes that it’s not unreasonable to make money, be happy and change the world – simultaneously.

“You don’t have to be an ass to make money. You don’t have to sacrifice money for joy. And you don’t have to be a martyr to change the world.”  

“Be totally unapologetic for the money you’re making. Be totally unapologetic for the joy your achieving in your life. Be totally unapologetic for how you’re having an impact to change the world for the better.”

With words like that, it’s no wonder that Steve has such a generous and giving spirit. His natural impulse is to figure out a way, no matter the situation to help. It’s not to say it always works out, but just the intent ensures that when he needs help, he’ll have a line out the door offering to help. With an unapologetic personality like that, I don’t think I’m alone in thinking, “thank goodness his music career didn’t work out.”

29: Dealing With NAYSAYERS... Jake Paul's Advice

Jun 15, 2017 09:58

Description:

My Two Cents – Ep. 29 – Dealing with Naysayers... Jake Paul's Advice. 

This past weekend at a mastermind event, I asked one of the younger (but very wise and successful) attendees, Jake Paul, how he deals with resistance or other people who are out to criticize what he does. His simple answer:

“Don’t let a few dirty dishes in the sink ruin the rest of the home.” 

Boom! Enough said. It really is that simple, isn’t it? I mean, why would we ever let something so small disrupt such a large structure? You wouldn’t! The same goes for your life’s work/mission. It’s pretty much guaranteed that when you answer your calling (your mission), the nay-sayers start showing up. But are you going to let a few people convince you to quit what you’re doing? No, of course not!

But it’s not always so easy to turn the other cheek and take the high road. That’s why I’ve come up with three tips that will help you when people start to speak out against what you’re working toward. 

Keep them in perspective. This goes along with the dirty dishes quote above, but don’t let a few people cloud all the good you’re doing. They are a TINY minority in a LOVING majority.  See them with LOVE immediately. This is a tough one, but such a game-changer. When we can consider where the other person is coming from (different beliefs, different upbringing etc.), we have to believe that what they’re saying is truth to them.

“Someone’s perspective is always their reality – you can’t change that.”

And obviously, they loved you enough to share their perspective – right or wrong. Sometimes, it’s simply just that they wish they were doing what you’re doing, but they didn’t want to put the work in. After all, it’s easier to do nothing than it is to do something, right?

Have a ZERO-engagement policy. I know sometimes you’re going to want to defend yourself, but it only takes one screenshot of a message to send you and your mission on a downward spiral. Your safest bet? Don’t waste your energy…or your time.

“No energy should be wasted on anything that isn’t strategically moving your goals forward.”

If you can implement these key tips when resistance shows up, you will achieve your mission faster and with less stress.

28: Starting an EIGHT FIGURE Business on CREDIT CARDS with Dr. Mike DiMarco

Jun 12, 2017 32:44

Description:

Like a lot of us, Dr. Michael DiMarco started his career in jobs that didn’t serve him (or the people he was supposedly serving). Looking back, he’s now grateful that being fired from those jobs was just one of the things that needed to happen for him to start pursuing his own dreams.

“Everything is a little nudge pushing you to where you’re supposed to be.”

With an ongoing interesting in both body building and lifestyle health, Michael took charge and started to create the life he wanted. And because he had a passion for helping others in the body building arena (especially those who were the victim of crappy supplement sponsorships), he also co-founded the thriving supplement company, Shredz. The company passionately believes in selling quality products in addition to providing educational information on lifestyle.

Let’s back up a sec here though… Did I mention that Shredz was originally started on a $15,000 credit card? While for some this would lead down a road of disaster, Mike’s upbringing taught him to be responsible and he made it work. He and his found started out with the basics – finding a manufacturer and starting small so they didn’t go further into debt. And over time it’s become a success story – now an eight-figure company and growing.

But even with Michael’s wild success, he truly believes that his success has never been about the money.

“Money isn’t the goal. Put yourself in the consumers’ shoes and think about if you’re adding value their lives.”

Sure, if your short-term goal is to make a lot money, you can deceive and tell people want they want to hear with zero follow-through. However, if you want to make money and an impact for the long term you need to add value and do the things that fill your cup.

“If you want to have a great life and be fulfilled, you have to do the things that make you happy and feed your mission or purpose in life.”

So what advice does Michael have for budding entrepreneurs? He encourages others to build a brand that everyone can identify with.

“You have to create a brand that connects.”

Don’t create a business just so you can see your name. Help as many people as you can, whether it’s with that business or your day-to-day actions. It’s not worth as much if the business is just about you.

“If you attach a purpose to your business or your business already has a purpose, that to me is the way to make an impact.”

Whether through his own chiropractor practice or his company that helps people get healthy, Michael uses his wealth to do just that. 

“Money and success allow you to amplify the impact you can make.”

Message received loud and clear. If that doesn’t inspire you to DO more, I don’t know what will.

27: Is It OK to PUBLICLY Share Your Random ACTS of GENEROSITY?

Jun 8, 2017 13:08

Description:

For some, My Two Cents topic today may be quite controversial, but we’re going to talk about it anyway.

(Check out my upcoming challenge at Fortheloveofmoney.com/challenge)

When doing a good deed or a random act of kindness, is it acceptable to share on social media (or anywhere else) – be it with videos, pictures or posts? Some would argue that if someone shares their generous act that it automatically becomes a selfish one. But does it?

I say a resounding hell no! With all the negativity in the world right now – more than ever – what if we saw more posts about generosity and giving? In my opinion,

“The more random acts of generosity shown the better.”

Compared to seeing posts of people tearing each other down (politically, personally etc.), messages that share someone doing something GENEROUS makes people hopeful. Maybe it even makes them feel guilty (in a good way) and causes a person to ask themselves, “When did I last do something nice for someone?” Of course there will always be those people who think you’re an a**hole for gaining attention for a “selfless” act, but who cares?!

“The real person who should be questioned is the person doing the judging, not the giving.”

Besides, even if there’s an ulterior motive – it’s still helping someone and doesn’t take the good out of the good deed. Don’t be afraid of what any naysayers will say about it!

“Share the damn deed with pride! Be unapologetic. Set an example. Be the light. Start a ripple effect of generosity that someone else was too afraid to do.”

So here comes the exciting part. I believe in this practice so much that I wanted to start a challenge around it.

“I want to walk the walk and get as many people unapologetically doing and sharing random acts of generosity.”

So starting on June 12, I’m kicking off a 7 Day Generosity Challenge. That’s seven days of generosity and sharing it with the masses.

“Every single act – big or small – truly matters. And together we can make the biggest difference you’ve ever imagined.”

Get creative – it can be anything. Buying someone’s coffee. Donating clothes to someone in need. Ordering a pizza for a business who you think would enjoy it. Leave a few five dollar bills in random places where you know someone could use them. The options are limitless.

“No act is too small.”

If each of us does our part, we can set a new standard. We can create a new ripple of generosity. And I’ll be doing this right along with you! Be sure to follow me @chriswharder as I give away $2,000 worth of prizes to those who participate throughout the 7 days.

For official rules of the 7 Days of Generosity Challenge, visit fortheloveofmoney.com/challenge.

And while I’m not typically a person who likes to ask for things, I would LOVE for you to please share this episode with your friends. Sure, this is a contest, but I’m interested in making this a MOVEMENT.

Thank you so much for helping me make this a reality. I can’t wait to see the ripple effect at the end of the 7 days. Let’s go be generous!

26: What does THIS PREACHER think about gaining MASSIVE WEALTH? (and HOW to do so!) with Joshua Feuerstein

Jun 5, 2017 56:05

Description:

Joshua Feuerstein – Episode 26 – What does THIS preacher think about gaining massive wealth?

From very humble beginnings and a terrible speech disability, Joshua Feuerstein’s story is not one you want to miss. His experiences and stories are jaw-dropping, and while you may not get why I have a preacher on this podcast, you will by the end as he drops some invaluable social media knowledge bombs that will blow your mind.

For those who may not know, Joshua Feuerstein is a viral conservative social media personality, speaker, evangelist and political commentator with over two million daily Facebook followers. His bold perspective, cutting-edge presentation and resonating message have fueled several of his videos to break the coveted 100 million view mark. With between 30-50 million people viewing, reading and interacting with his posts on a weekly basis, he remains one of the leading social media voices in the Christian conservative movement. 

But this wasn’t always the case for Joshua. In the early part of his life, he had a terrible stutter. He was bullied and teased (which he’s now thankful for as it gave him some thick skin), but he had a loving home and an especially generous father. His father went out of his way to be kind to others – literally taking groceries from their home (when they had very little to give) to help those who were in need of them more.

Witnessing such generosity, at the age of 17, Joshua felt called to give some of his things to a local church as well. After doing so and later attending a service at the church, he had a miraculous encounter with God. His stutter completely disappeared. Nothing gradual about it. It was gone.

From this point, things starting looking up for Joshua. At the age of 19, he was speaking at several speaking engagements at churches and other large events. He even had an offer to become an NFL broadcaster.

Things were going well, up until five or six years ago though, when his fiancée at the time broke his heart. Suffering from deep depression, it was one of the lowest points of his life, so much so that he pictured himself pulling the trigger on his own life. It was then that he had an epiphany where he recalled God’s story about the five loaves and two fish…while as a whole it couldn’t feed many, by breaking it into pieces it could feed thousands. Similarly, Joshua thought,

“God could actually use my broken-ness to bless other people.”

And so it began… He started sharing his true, authentic self and the struggles that came along with it. People loved his transparency and as a result several of his videos went viral (some reaching more than 100 million views).

Now an in-demand social media consultant, Joshua shares the “secrets” behind creating a viral video and gaining a loyal social media following for your brand.

“If you say something that other people agree with, but don’t know how to articulate it, they will share it.” 

“If you say something that other people agree with, but they’re afraid to say it – they share it.”

Your success is largely dependent on your authenticity. When it comes down to it, you want people to CONNECT with you and everything that you are. So let people see your flaws.

“People want to see the real YOU – they don’t want a façade.” 

Furthermore, make sure you’re being authentic to YOU and finding the niche around that. Make it something your passionate about.

“Find who you are and build a brand around that – and invest in branding yourself.”

Know your audience. If you desire to be extremely neutral, you’re not going to develop as loyal of a brand. Joshua admittedly uses a radical approach. Keep in mind that your biggest enemies can be your biggest evangelists…

Being as conservative as he is, he’s aware that there’s always going to be some kickback. But to him it’s one of the highest honors.

“You’re going to irritate some people. And if you’re not, you’re probably not doing it right.”

“Don’t be afraid to tap into your opposition marketing and sometimes let your haters share your stuff, too – or at least talk about it.”

And don’t take it personally… The haters don’t necessarily hate you, they just don’t like what you stand for (love that this relates to my last podcast!).

So now that you’ve found your audience, how do you keep them?

This is one of my favorite parts, because like me, Joshua also feels that generosity is key. He suggests consistently giving people VALUE. Don’t try to monetize your following immediately or they’ll likely end up mistrusting you.

“Give people around 80% of your best stuff and then charge them for the last 20%.”

Also, be sure to let people see how you’re doing good in the world. This doesn’t mean you need to be boastful and showy, but when you lead by example, you’re also inspiring others to do the same.

As a preacher, Joshua believes that wealth can be a great thing.

“Money isn’t evil. It’s if you simply love money to the point that it owns you, instead of you owning it.”

He also believes in the “sow and reap” concept from the Bible.

“If you sow, you reap. Period." 

For example, one day at a local coffee shop, he paid for a man’s coffee and Danish. It was a pure act of kindness and one that he enjoyed doing frequently for random individuals. This particular time led to a conversation with the CFO of large company, which later on helped land him a multi-million-dollar contract.

“Real generosity has zero stipulations attached.” 

When it comes down to it, wealth is only what you make of it. Joshua likes to think of money as just one of the tools we were all provided with to fulfill our purposes here on this earth. But there has to be a purpose behind it… Whether it’s driving a nice car to keep up with the expectations of a wealthy client or buying luxurious watches so you can later give it to someone who needs it for the money, we must always keep it in perspective.

“Money does not change you. It only magnifies who you already exist as.”

25: A MIDDLE FINGER to SUCCESS!

Jun 1, 2017 12:55

Description:

Well, that got your attention, didn’t it? It got mine, too. Let me explain…

The other morning, my wife, Lori, and I were on our way to Soul Cycle, one of our weekly workout outings. It was a good day and we were chatting back and forth. We had been driving for only 10 blocks when out of nowhere a guy who looked like he was ready to go to work, gave us the middle finger.

This was no ordinary execution of flipping the bird though… This was a high-flying, fully extended middle finger that tracked us as we drove by. I give the man an A+ for effort. We hadn’t done anything to set him off – we were driving under the speed limit, no loud music etc. The only thing left was that we were driving a Ferrari and obviously he had a problem with what it represented – wealth.

Was I angry? Of course I was – the guy had just put a dark cloud to the start of my day. But that anger quickly turned into compassion as I realized just how much pain something must have caused him to trigger such an act. And this is just one of the reasons I started this podcast – I want to shift people’s perspectives around money.

“You’ll never be able to change your current situation if you have any hatred toward the people who are in the situation where you’d rather be.”

Have you ever judged someone by their bag, their car or the clothes they wear? We all have at some point. But ultimately,

“You can’t hate wealth and have it at the same time – it just doesn’t work.”

I realize that this goes both ways… I mean, I had no more of an idea what that man’s story was than he had about mine. But what if we all knew or asked what a person’s story was behind their wealth? What if they donate a large part of their wealth to charity? What if they donate their time? What if… And sure there’s always bound to be that stereotypical jackass, but again that doesn’t mean that all wealthy people are the same.

I challenge you to think this through the next time you encounter wealth – whether it’s in abundance or lack. Let’s work on shifting our money mindsets so we’re able to,

“Let everyone thrive so we can ALL make a difference.”

24: From Kitchen Table to $50 MILLION Per Year with Evan Tardy

May 29, 2017 45:16

Description:

 

It will probably not come as a surprise that today’s guest, Evan Tardy, was born with entrepreneurship blood running through his veins. His grandfather took the risk years ago to walk away from the already-in-place family farm and started a company, which is now run by his own father. Both men played a pivotal role in instilling a strong worth ethic in Evan, and further supporting those roles with phrases like,

“You make your money at 4:00 on a Friday afternoon.”

With this in mind, it was inevitable that Evan started his own entrepreneurial career at the ripe age of 16 when he created his own mobile car wash service. Of course, hours upon hours in the sun washing cars gets tiring after a couple years, so with a successful run he sold the business to a friend to pursue other adventures on his entrepreneurial path.

While there were moments of discouragement (and still some today), he just kept hustling and getting things done with the mentality that you “learn in your 20s and earn in your 30s” thanks to the idea from author Keith Ferrazzi.

So after trying a lot of different things, volunteering and learning about various areas, he ended up meeting a dentist who was moving to town. Seeing the need for some marketing help, Evan offered to help him at no cost (it was the perfect opportunity for him to cut his teeth on the new things he’d learned). Not only was he successful, he increased the dentist’s monthly income by more than three times than when he began. Evan also helped another friend with his marketing at no cost and had similar results.

Did he need to give his work away for free? Certainly not, but for him,

“The benefit of being able to help someone in some way or another and approach every challenge or thing I wanted to learn has come back to pay dividends in many, many multiples.”

After all, why would you not practice/hone your skills with a smaller (safe) audience before you have to do it for a much larger group?

“Create a safe space for you to experiment. Try stuff, learn and fail when you only have an audience of two or three or when there’s very little on the line.”

Fast forward to Evan’s raging success as the President of Dr. Axe, the 2nd largest natural health website in the world. Now in a leadership role, he focuses on bringing the right people onto their team and ensuring that everyone is bringing their best selves and creative problem-solving skills to work each day.

But what else contributes to the fact that Dr. Axe has been recognized as one of Inc. 5000's fastest-growing companies?

“We’re serving people with a mission that’s a lot greater than ourselves.”

And while that mission is super important, he also knows that money, personal growth and friends play a factor, in addition to reinvesting in their employees, hiring more great people and focusing on the same things. There’s really no “secret sauce.”

“By really choosing to focus on a few key pieces of the puzzle for us, we’re able to reinvest profits to get better and better.”

Evan is a shining example of what it means to be a true entrepreneur – both in work ethic and generosity. And he feels that we’re all here to aspire to some amount of greatness. Whether you make millions or just get by, he truly believes we should all just,

“Enjoy the journey and OWN that we are all striving for greatness.”

And what a great lesson for us all.

23: An Entrepreneur's HACK Guaranteed to BOOST Your INCOME

May 25, 2017 14:17

Description:

My Two Cents – Ep. 23 – An Entrepreneur's Hack Guaranteed to Boost Your Income 

Here it is, the business hack you’ve been waiting for… Delegation.

Ok, so this isn’t a new concept, but stick with me because I’m going to share my “formula” and rules that make this a game-changer for your business and life. While the idea of delegation is quite basic, it’s often not used to its full potential – if at all.

Just my two cents, but “You simply cannot and should not be doing everything yourself.”

I understand that it’s hard either giving up power or money, but this is exactly the reason you SHOULD. You’re not being efficient, it slows you down and you could end up potentially losing money as well.

“You should only be doing income-producing activities or activities that you love. That’s it. Nothing else.”

So how do you know if delegation is right for you? The following two rules will help you determine if you can afford to delegate or if your business is at a point to delegate tasks.

If you can hire out the task for less than you currently value your time at, then do it! Even if you have to hire it out for the same value as what you value your time at (or slightly more), and if it is delegating a non-income-producing activity, then do it.

Here’s how to estimate the hourly value of your time:

Take your gross revenue (or your estimated gross revenue) and divide it by the number of hours you put into your business. This is typically 2,080 hours a year (52 weeks x 40 hours a week). Example, if you made $80,000, your hourly rate would be about $39/hour.

If delegating a task would be less than this – do it! And keep in mind that even if it’s a higher rate, it will likely still save you time (which is ultimately more money).

And don’t forget, when you delegate you’re putting more jobs out into the economy as well. Not to mention you’ll likely be passing over duties that frustrate you. In turn you’ll likely feel a weight lifted – and be a happier person! I can tell you from experience that when you’re happier, you attract more customers/business.

“A happier entrepreneur is a more effective entrepreneur.”

I encourage you to start before you’re ready. Stop doing the things you hate. And spend time doing more of what you love – growing your business and having more fun with it.

To help you see where some of your inefficiencies are at (whether you’re an entrepreneur or business leader), be sure to make this list:

What’s your hourly value? List every activity that you currently do to grow your business that somebody else could be doing that falls under your hourly value. List things that cost the same as (or a little more than) your hourly rate that you’re currently doing, but would save you hours. Add anything else that you could delegate ­– get creative!

What were your results? I would love to hear! Be sure to tag me on Facebook or IG!

Now, go get delegating!

22: The EXPERT in How to MONETIZE YOUR PASSION Online with Melyssa Griffin

May 22, 2017 51:35

Description:

I am so excited (like geeking-out excited) for you to hear my conversation with Melyssa Griffin. She truly exemplifies the meaning of true entrepreneurship and giving, and I can’t wait for you listen. (This podcast is a must for anyone who has a passion and wants to make a living by doing just that.)

For those who may not know, Melyssa is a rockstar at teaching online courses and live workshops for entrepreneurs and bloggers who want to turn their after-work hobbies into full-time businesses. A few of her specialties include list-building, webinars, using Pinterest to get organic traffic, and content marketing. She also leads an active Facebook group of 60,000 members and helps almost 150,000 entrepreneurs with her weekly emails.

Early on, Melyssa actually had nothing to do with the blogging/online world. After college, she started out as an English teacher in Japan, but after some time just never felt like it was her true purpose, so she started to pursue more creative avenues. She wasn’t looking to start a business, she just really wanted to build an online community/blog that could help people become their best selves and be more creative.

Well, once her blogging began, it spiraled into so many different areas. Melyssa opened a small web studio and focused her blogging on her experiences with growing her business. And wouldn’t you know, people were really interested in what she learned and what she had to say.

It was during this time that Melyssa discovered that while she enjoyed the creative work she was doing and learning new things each day, she actually was having more fun (and fulfilling her purpose more) by teaching others what she was learning along the way and helping them find the freedom in their lives like she did. And so began helping as many people as possible,

“Monetize their passion.”

Ok, ok, easier said than done… Or is it? I know for many, this seems like a long shot. Can your passion really make you money? You’d be surprised. Melyssa’s clients range from yoga teaching to art lessons with a unique type of marker (seriously).

“People don’t realize that there are all these sub-niches out there with people who are willing to spend money to learn what you already have in your head.”

But you have to be willing to put in the work and put the information out there. Time is always a factor, but in this day in age, it’s easier than ever. Melyssa estimates that in 90 days and for less than $500, you can create a profitable business. Clearly, it won’t happen overnight, but you don’t need a HUGE audience. You just need to focus and be willing to forego a leisure activity or two. You can make it happen.

“The time often exists if we make space for it. It’s just a matter of are we willing to make that sacrifice in the vision of something bigger that’s out there for our lives.”

Melyssa goes on to talk about her fears and practices to help break through them. She also shares with us her money mindset struggle and why she feels it’s so important to be transparent and real when it comes to sharing her experiences (she shares her income and expenses on a monthly basis on her website). 

Melyssa is truly an entrepreneur who just keeps giving and giving…and giving. Whether it’s the Pinterest knowledge she drops on this podcast, a free workshop/online course or helping to raise money for Pencils of Promise, it’s so obvious that everything she does has others in mind.

Money is great, but at the end of the day, it’s about caring for people and finding a way to help each other. After all, Melyssa truly believes and practices what she says,

“The biggest thing you can give is your heart." 

And I couldn’t agree more.

21: Why I UNAPOLOGETICALLY Bought A Ferrari

May 18, 2017 07:25

Description:

Wait a second, this is a podcast about giving, right? So why in the world am I talking about buying a Ferrari? While the title seems a bit contradictory, I assure you there’s more to it.

If you’ve listened to my other podcasts, you know that I’m all about smashing negative wealth stereotypes. And that’s why I want ALL my listeners to have the ability to BUST through any mental blocks they have around wealth and unapologetically celebrate and pursue their wealth and accomplishments – OUT LOUD.

There’s a catch though…you must deem yourself worthy of all the good things that you accomplish along the way.

“If you don’t believe you’re worthy, you’ll never really reach your maximum wealth ability, and you’ll never reach your ability to give in as big of a way as you want to.”

But there has to be a balance between giving to ourselves and to others. After all, what’s it all for if we don’t stop to acknowledge in some way, shape or form our achievements along the way?

Does this mean you have to go out and buy a car? Definitely not – cars are just one of my deep-rooted passions. However, it’s so important to find something that represents both the season/mood you’re in at the time of your accomplishment and who you had to become in order to get it. For example, right now. 

“I’m in the season of aggressive, fast, sexy, and eye-catching movement – full speed ahead.”

Surround yourself with whatever will support you and help you to go ALL in. Be unapologetic about what dangling “carrot” motivates you to produce more epic results. And as those results compound, you’ll be able to give the excess away to others.

And at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about, right?

20: MILLIONAIRES in Their 20's...How Did Emily and Hayden Vavra Do It?!

May 15, 2017 52:19

Description:

Interviewing some of the youngest, most successful people I know today triggered me to ask one of my favorite questions, “What was your money mindset growing up?”

I think people perceive wealthy individuals as “lucky” or “dealt the good hand in life,” when truly I feel like 9 times out of 10, entrepreneurs didn’t START off that way, which is why I like to hear (and share with my audience) everyone’s background and how it all began.

Interestingly, today’s guests Emily and Hayden Vavra, give two very different but REAL perspectives on the beginning of their entrepreneurial careers. Emily was raised by a hard-working single mother with the mindset that “money doesn’t grow on trees.” Hayden, however, was raised in a very large and privileged family of equally hard-working parents and with the belief that anything and any amount of money is possible.

Before entrepreneurial life, both had their careers – Emily made an average amount of money and Hayden played for a short time in the NFL. And while they were content, both knew as a couple that they were destined to do more.

“I started reading a lot more, attended my first event and working on personal development. So I think for me, a lot of it came from the mindset. I needed to first believe that I could do it.”
– Hayden Vavra  

From a happy, but mediocre, lifestyle to an insane entrepreneur empire, Hayden and Emily are an unstoppable power couple.

“We both have our individual dreams, goals and aspirations, but we definitely talk together about what’s on the horizon as well and crazy goals that most people would laugh about if they ever heard us talking.”  

Accomplishing things on your own is empowering and exciting (don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise), but from my own personal experience, and hearing what Emily and Hayden had to say as well, crushing goals with the one you love is a completely priceless feeling.

19: How To CONTROL Your OWN ECONOMY

May 11, 2017 10:31

Description:

“Your economy is YOUR economy.”

How you live, how you run your business and/or behave as an employee, what you spend and what your savings habits are – that’s all up to you. It’s in your hands…literally. I repeat, “Your economy is YOUR economy.”

So for all of my listeners who think we’re in “tough times” right now, I’m here to have you try on a new idea, change your way of thinking and ask you to find a new perspective.

“People see what they want to see.”

It’s easy to find comfort and misery in tough times. Whether it’s within your bank account or your relationships, I challenge you to think outside the box. As the old saying goes, “No one said it will be easy, but it will be worth it.”

“Knowing you can thrive in any city – at any time – is like having the magic ticket to success.”
