Sam shares how he has rebounded from failure, how he commits to his fitness and success, and the importance of persuasion. Episode Highlights:  - You don’t get any off hours when you’re an entrepreneur, but you’re the one in charge and calling the shots. - You need to hire someone to hold you accountable and push you when you’re an entrepreneur because you don’t have a boss to do that. - It took Sam 10 years to make his first $1 million, and then only 6 months to earn his second million. - Early in his business, he actually faced foreclosure and bankruptcy in the face of the 2008 financial crisis. - Sam has had to master the skill of delaying gratification. - Money is like bodybuilding, in that you can lose gains just as quickly as you make them. - His main avenue for investing is real estate, particularly flipping apartments. - Sam believes who you know is more important than what you know. - Seeking out new people is uncomfortable, and it’s easier to stay behind your computer and do things yourself, so you have to make it a priority. - Sam gives everybody a chance, but he doesn’t give unlimited chances, which allows the most impactful people in his circle to stick around. - Commitment is freedom and discipline is happiness. - Humans are programmed to be negative, so we have to rewire ourselves to be positive in a more automatic, habitual way. - All entrepreneurs need to build their skills in copywriting, persuasion, and marketing. - Random Round: a quick series of random questions to get to know Sam. 3 Key Points: 1. Giving up something now for something greater later is a skill and a muscle that needs to be developed. 2. If you treat people transactionally, you’ll get transactional results. 3. Persuasion is not a negative thing, it’s necessary for business success. Tweetable Quotes:  - “What’s the best thing that can happen and what’s the worst thing that can happen? If you can live with the worst thing that can happen, then you should go for it.” –Sam Bakhtiar - “If something makes your heart happy, as long as you’re not being a dumb investor, you’re not doing dumb things with your money, there’s nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day you have to be happy.” –Sam BakhtiarResources Mentioned: - Sam Bakhtiar: Website, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube - What To Say When You Talk to Yourself - Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion - Visit Travis’ website at Buildyournetwork.co - Join the Build Your Network Facebook group BYN.media/fb - Join the Build Your Network University Facebook group here byn.university. - If you want to amplify your network through podcasting apply at travischappell.com/coaching - Download the Himalaya App in the App Store or Google Play - Leave a rating and review for the Build Your Network Podcast on iTunes - Watch Travis’ free masterclass on how to build the network of your dreams at threenetworkingsecrets.com For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Matt Manero, author of “You Need More Money”, Evan Stewart, a 25-year-old luxury real estate developer, and Jeff Hoffman, founder of Priceline.com, share with your host, Travis Chappell, their thoughts on "who you know" and "what you know." Episode Highlights:  - Matt Manero - It starts with “what” and moves into “who,” because you won’t be on a big “Who’s” radar unless you have excellence in a “what.” - Ultimately though, it comes down to who you know. - If you want to get out of a conversation with someone who isn’t beneficial to you, just say that it’s been a pleasure talking, and then walk away.  - Evan Stewart - Who you know is more important. - To break into a higher real estate budget level it was all about who he knew and who his clients were referring him to. - Education is what you can do to compensate for lack of experience; if you can’t say you have ten years’ experience, you need something else to lean on.  - Jeff Hoffman - Nobody is great at twelve things, so you need other people in your network to round out your team to accomplish big things. - Schedule days where you aren’t in the office doing work, but are out in the world growing your network. - People who claim they’re too busy to network could solve the problem of being too busy by networking and finding people to build a team to take things off their plate. 3 Key Points: 1. You need a level of competency in what you do, but you won’t get better at what you do without who you know. 2. Schedule time in your calendar specifically for networking. 3. Use networking to find people whose skills fill in the gaps of what you don’t know. Tweetable Quotes: - “Excellence in what will not allow you to reach your potential unless you have excellence in who. And excellence in who will not work unless you have excellence in what.” –Matt Manero - “Everybody says you’re full of crap because you’re in your twenties until you do tens of millions of dollars in sales, and all of a sudden nobody cares how old you are because they know you do your job.” –Evan Stewart - “No big accomplishment in the world was ever accomplished by one person. You really are limited by the strength of your network or the weakness of it.” –Jeff HoffmanResources Mentioned: - You Need More Money by Matt Manero - Matt Manero’s website | Twitter  - Evan Stewart’s Twitter | Facebook | Instagram - Jeff Hoffman’s Website | Twitter | Linkedin - Visit Travis’ website at Buildyournetwork.co - Learn more about mentorships and masterminds for FREE at freemmcourse.com/enroll - Get your tickets for Travis new live event in Vegas at www.bynlive.com - Download the Himalaya App in the App Store or Google Play - Get more free content from Travis at threenetworkingsecrets.com For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
