Max Lugavere is a filmmaker, health & science journalist, and NY Times bestselling author of Genius Foods. He appears regularly on TV shows like Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray, and the Today Show. In this episode of Build Your Network, you will find out how Max started from nothing and became a bestselling author, and how he ended up in the health and wellness space.   Episode Highlights: - Max was born and raised in Manhattan, and was fortunate enough to be exposed to quite a few different things so he was able to find his passion. - Both of Max’s parents grew up rather poor as the children of Jewish immigrants, who started a successful business in the Garment District, so those entrepreneurial characteristics were instilled in him from a young age. - He started college as a pre-med student but ended up double majoring in film and psychology. - He was highly intelligent and always curious, but struggled with executive function and the skills necessary to be a highly successful student. - Max focused on documentary filmmaking and worked with journalists who are now household names. - He was always casually researching health and fitness from a young age for his own interest and curiosity, so it became something that people knew to approach him about it with questions. - Through his own research, he was getting a highly scientific perspective on health issues like ketogenic diets and other things that were really cutting-edge at the time. - When his mom fell ill with a form of dementia, Max decided he wanted to find out what could be done with diet and health to help his mother. - People often don’t find motivation about their health until something catastrophic happens, at which point it’s almost too late, but things Max has done are reproducible steps you can take now. - His book proposal was rejected by three of the four publishers he pitched to, and was only able to dedicate his time to writing by dramatically cutting his expenses and living a lean life for the year he dedicated to write. - His publishers were confident that he was the right storyteller for this content and took a chance on him, but Max knew that publishers are playing a numbers game and there’s no guarantee of a successful book. - Max did no fancy marketing, he only used basic social media and leveraged contacts in his network. - He knew this book was a once in a lifetime opportunity and was dedicated to investing in it, which for him meant things like hiring a PR firm to help manage incoming requests. - Within a week, the book hit #4 on Amazon. - After he changed up his Instagram approach, he launched his podcast, The Genius Life, in order to continue having conversations with his followers. - Success requires you to foster your relationships, which requires networking. - Saying that you don’t like networking is an excuse; networking and building friendships are not two separate activities, they are the same. - The Random Round 3 Key Points: 1. You can take the thing you’re naturally curious about and cultivate it into a business. 2. Taking advantage of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities may come with sacrifices too. 3. Networking and building friendships are the same activity. Tweetable Quotes: - “I knew that I had to invest energy into Instagram. And when it came to figuring out what strategy was going to work, I basically tried everything. I was not afraid to experiment and to fail and to have a post now and then that had no engagement.” –Max Lugavere - “People aren’t willing to suck at something. They’re afraid of the embarrassment or other people’s judgement, but ultimately you have to come to terms with the fact that you are going to suck, and it’s okay. Just keep doing it and you’ll get better.” –Travis Chappell - “Life is a collaboration. One of the best things about life is meeting people and then making cool shit with them.” –Max Lugavere Resources Mentioned:  - https://www.maxlugavere.com/ - The Genius Life pod...
In this episode of Freestyle Friday, your host Travis Chappell shares his tips for how to become an influencer.   Episode Highlights: - Freestyle Friday episodes will be available as videos in the future! - If you have to call yourself an influencer, you probably aren’t one. - The only way to gain influence with people is to add value. - Earning authority is part of it, but it’s not the only thing. - Your influence will only rise as far as the value you give back. - Use personal development to make yourself a more valuable person to others. Key Points: 1. Offering value is more important than having authority alone. 2. To add more value to others, add more value to yourself. Tweetable Quotes: - “If somebody does not add real value, they cannot last in the space for very long.” –Travis Chappell Resources Mentioned:  - Get your tickets for Travis new live event in Vegas at www.bynlive.com - Shop easy, with smartly designed men’s clothes by Mack Weldon at www.mackweldon.com and use promo code “travis” at checkout for 20% off - Learn how to network at events at www.travischappell.com/yes - 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 - 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 - Download the Himalaya App in the App Store or Google Play For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
Mark Asquith, founder of Rebel Base Media; Amy Porterfield, online marketing expert and online course creator; and Rylee Meek, CEO of The Social Dynamic Selling System, motivational speaker, and mentor, share with your host, Travis Chappell, their thoughts on when it’s time to quit your job to pursue your passion full-time.   Episode Highlights:  - Mark Asquith - Mark left the corporate world after spending some time working for his dad who was a self-employed electrician, and that taught him freedom and flexibility. - The problem for him was never the money but was that he was always under someone else’s control. - Mark began to develop this point of view when he was young and tried to purchase a hot dog, only to discover he didn’t have enough money, and realized it wasn’t in his control whether he had the money and someone else got to decide what he could or couldn’t have because of it. - Amy Porterfield - Amy took the corporate route from day one out of college and never considered being an entrepreneur, but her dad always said she should find a way to be her own boss. - Amy worked for Tony Robbins for over 6 years as a content creator so she was immersed in the idea of being an entrepreneur. - Travis thinks people get caught up in the idea of being their own boss and end up quitting their job and losing their main source of income way too soon. - Amy ended up creating a business she actually hated because it’s what she had happened to learn working for Tony Robbins, and it’s networking that propelled her into the next phase. - She became a liaison between Tony and a man named Mark who ended up founding the now extremely popular website Social Media Examiner, and who ended up becoming her first client. - Rylee Meek - Rylee began developing an entrepreneurial spirit as soon as he worked his first 8-hour shift at a gas station and realized how little he would earn. - Rylee and Travis agree that everyone should do either network marketing, door-to-door sales, or telemarketing at least once to boost your skills. - He didn’t go back to school because he felt he could achieve unlimited opportunity with his business. - When he spontaneously went to Malaysia to open his business internationally, he had an early mid-life crisis from the culture shock. - Rylee was also engaged to be married and began working as an insurance salesman for a middle ground between being an entrepreneur and being part of an existing business. - A colleague told him that 85% of the job was negativity and rejection, but you’d do well if you could focus on the positive 15%. - Rylee and Travis have tolerated a lot of jobs they weren’t passionate about because they appreciated the time, freedom, and money, but eventually felt they had to follow their passion once they reached a certain level of success and stability. 3 Key Points: 1. Working for yourself means no one else is able to wield control over what you can do or how you feel. 2. Choose to become your own boss at a moment that makes sense for you financially and professionally. 3. Everything you work on, both the successes and failures, accumulate and impact your work today. Tweetable Quotes: - “The problem wasn’t the money. The problem was the lack of control and the lack of fulfillment. No matter how much money I earned doing that, someone would always tell me where I needed to be and when.” –Mark Asquith - “Putting myself out there literally changed the trajectory of my future.” –Amy Porterfield - “You know that saying that everybody should be a waiter once, & I have that same feeling towards network marketing. It’s gotten a bad rep, but at the core I think it’s a brilliant model & really pushes people to do the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable.” –Rylee Meek Resources Mentioned:  - Mark Asquith: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - Amy Porterfield: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - Rylee Meek: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagra...

Shelby Wachtendorf Colorado Springs Realtor

Hi Travis! I love your podcast. I am a Realtor and am always seeking ways on how to improve my ability to serve my clients to the highest degree. Like Jordan, I am currently building my business brick by brick - with the exception this is the first time I am building a business - and have realized that there are key elements, such as networking, that in the long term makes or breaks a business. This segment was fantastic as it dawned on me that interviewing skills are just as crucial in your industry as for mine. Approaching anyone with the intention to build a relationship takes interviewing skills - I have never heard it put that way before. Perhaps a significant part of this skill is about being interested in the person, not interesting. I also loved Jordan's acronym of Always Be Giving! Thanks for providing a great resource. ~ Shelby
