So – here's the deal: Josh Elledge has been conducting a series of interviews for a Napoleon Hill project. We've been meeting at a top-secret Cold War-era base southeast of Orlando.

This project is designed to reveal how people of influence gained their influence. How did they gain their authority? How did they become respected in their industry? You'll find that in most cases, it wasn't due to being lucky or getting the right breaks. It comes down to intentional choices that led to eventual success.

Play along with us. The hackers inserted listening devices into my base – and now they are publishing the audio as a podcast! Rather than fighting them, we'll share the audio here.

Josh and the team are still working on the project. We have nearly 100 influencers on our list. At some point, we will share more about our research findings. Until then, you are welcome to listen to the raw audio of Josh's conversations with thought leaders. It's pretty revealing stuff.

Josh is actively booking guests for his DAILY podcast: The Thoughtful Entrepreneur. They're happy to share your story with their 120K+ audience.😇

Our guest for today is Chris Joyce, the CEO and founder of Gusher, a startup platform that focuses in successfully launching a company by using time equity. Gusher deals with companies in different industries whether it may be in media, health, technology, design, finance, and gaming. The problem with most startup companies is that they don’t know where to begin. Normally, most of these companies would begin with money to start the company. Gusher believes that money isn’t the first thing that should be considered. When really doing a startup, your number one barrier that you have to overcome is people. You don't need money or capital. What you need is people to go ahead and unlock your idea and bring it to life. When you're dealing with a founder and creating startups and teams, there are the goals, the milestones, and the methodology. The processes that Gusher provides aims to help the entrepreneurs and the teams go through those stages. You have to go ahead and provide a certain amount of structure that enables that entrepreneur to go ahead and knock out those goals with the team. That's really what Gusher is all about. We at Gusher believe that it’s all about the right timing at the right place and in the right moment in history. We think that demand is there, and we think it is going to take off. It is really just a matter of time and effort. Aside from being the founder of Gusher, Chris is also the founder of 24 other companies in various industries. Some of these companies are Exert, Movy, Uzurp, Carebox, Upvice, and O' So Lo Foods.
