For a lot of business owners, the pandemic has cost them their livelihood. For example, Yelp! recently shared that 55% of the businesses using their platform which closed down due to the pandemic aren't coming back. What's a business team to do when you're looking at those kinds of numbers? How can you avoid having to close down?The answer, I believe, is all about being able to make a pivot. And this is something we've been discussing in great detail on the show.Unfortunately, for some business teams, pivoting might not be too obvious. Sure, curb service and delivery for some restaurants makes sense, but what if your restaurant wasn't so much a restaurant, but a bar? What if you're reliant on a market that's not doing so great right now such as realty?Today's guest, Dirk van Reenen, excels at helping teams focus on the foundations of business and how they scale their businesses in ways that they might not have noticed before. In fact, with the future looking like things will be changing faster and faster, it's important that all businesses know how to quickly pivot.So what does that look like? Well, the first thing is all about building the right team - and that's where today's conversation takes us.Listen in as Andy and I learn more about Dirk's business BERGflow and how it might benefit those of us going through or preparing to go through a hard time.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What's the path that Dirk followed to eventually starting BERGFlow? 9:45Where did the name BERGFlow come from? 15:20What are some things people need to consider when building a team as a solopreneur? 20:24What challenges does remote work give to a group who's forming into an effective team? 26:50If a leader finds themselves in a situation where there's trust issue in the team, how can they get back some of the control in their group? 32:02According to Dirk, what's the importance of a business team building something worthwhile? 38:54What kind of things is Dirk looking forward to as we move into a different world post-pandemic? 45:40What's the best advice he's ever received? 51:40Which three books does he gift or tell others about? 52:11What's the smallest decision he's made that has had the largest impact in his life? 54:22What's one thing all high school students must know? 59:01What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 1:01:41 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Dirk Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixPowered By: KennectedDocumentary - Happy - (Flow in BERGfow comes from this documentary)Rocketfuel - Visionary / Operator (or Integrator) relationshipDavid Osborn- Dirk’s Mentore-myth revisitedChris Tuff AoL InterviewThink and Grow RichThe Fish that Ate the WhaleThe Road Less Stupid - Keith CunninghamLoving What Is - Byron Katie Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

Today, more than ever, videos play a large part in social media marketing. If you have a goal of becoming a social influencer, there's a pretty good chance you'll need to know how to not only make but produce good quality content to attract people to be part of your audience.Here's the catch, though. Not all business owners want to be social influencers. In fact, many business owners might prefer to stay out of that particular limelight because they feel that it would take even more time to make that extra content. Time they could be spending doing what works and less experimenting with new content.So how does someone who prefers to work their craft and/or work 1 on 1 with their clients, find the time to create and edit this new content?Well, truth is, they need to bring in someone who has a proven process to attract the right type of audience.Our guest, Rohan Kale, fits the bill. Personally, I call him more of a social media marketing architect. Not only does he has the process down, but like an architect, hires out the in person work to local videographers.It's a really fascinating business model.In this session, Andy and I learn how he got started in business and what about his approach makes his process a winner today and in the future.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Rohan's choice to go to business school eventually lead to starting his own business? 14:31When it comes to building a business, is it worth becoming a social influencer first or should it be a focus in fortune? 20:17How can someone increase their lead generation with a limited budget? 22:00How do you shift the thought of online marketing being a gamble to a one where you know it has a given ROI? 25:18What factors should a business owner consider when they're determining whether to stay localized or go global with their marketing? 26:48For someone who has an in person based business, how does Rohan make his business work from the other side of the world? 29:39What mistakes does Rohan commonly see with those who want to be a social influencer? 31:40What are three tips he'd recommend to those who are looking to expand their reach and influence? 33:10How has the pandemic affected his business? 38:16What is one song, one book, and one film Rohan he'd add to the curriculum in school? 39:53What's the best advice he's ever received? 46:25What new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved his life? 47:35What is something people don't realize is a huge waste of money? 49:14How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 51:33 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Rohan Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixPowered By: Fizzle (Start get started for free today!)CBS Sunday Morning Story on the WorkplacePursuit of Happyness (Will Smith)Conversations with God by Neale Donald WalschBollywood Music videos mentioned by Rohan: Dilko Ko Tumse pyar hua and YaaronMalhari - My go to Bollywood music video Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

When we have the discussion about achievement and having greater success, many times we go straight to tactics and tools as the answer. Or, if we know better, maybe we'll take a look at our vision and mission and see if it needs to be tweaked a bit.One thing we often skip over, however, is our mindset. As we've been learning in the show recently, mindsets can be seen as the lenses we see the world in. And there's a lot of talk about going from negative mindsets to more positive alternatives.Most of the time, though, this has been a bit of nebulous concept. Especially, when we don't know where we're currently at and how we can improve from there.However, in this session, our goal is to bring that conversation down to reality a bit.Our guest, Dr. Ryan Gottfredson, has spent over five years looking at the knowledge and data on what it means to go from good to great when it comes to mindsets. And what he's found is that mindsets can actually be quantifiable. Through his assessment and book, Success Mindsets, we have a way to find out where we're at in our positive and negative mindsets and have a plan to move all our If you've been searching for an assessment to help you get more clarity on where you should go in your self development journey, this is a great place to start.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Ryan end up in the Organizational Behavior field and later looking at mindsets? 10:06Why does he look at mindsets versus personalities? 13:44What are the four opposing mindsets that we can encounter in the world? 16:57How do the results of Gallup's annual poll on leadership tie into Ryan's research? 21:42How do we as leaders become the better version of ourselves so we can inspire our followers to be their best? 24:04Is there a way to make sure we don't fall into self protective stress and keep in a growth mindset? 26:03What exercises can someone do to keep them in a growth mindset? 29:09Does Ryan feel that his new growth mindset is his new default setting or will he have to continue to reinforce it over time? 32:50What role does a coach play in helping someone improve their mindset? 35:37What benefits can someone expect from reading Ryan's book "Success Mindsets"? 36:43When it comes to the word agile, what does it mean at the individual level? 38:16What has Ryan been doing as part of his pandemic pivot? 41:58How infectious are mindsets when it comes to other people? 43:43What are Ryan's top 3 favorite books he gifts or tells others about? 45:24When you become overwhelmed or unfocused, what does he do? 46:49If he were to run a business or do a job for a day that he's currently not, what would it be? 47:51What's the smallest decision Ryan's made that's had the greatest impact on his life? 48:31How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 49:39 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Ryan Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixPowered By: Kennected (Save $500 on your onboarding call by using this link!)Andy’s Interview of Mel McMahonAoL Interview with Chris TuffViktor Frankl - Man’s Search for Meaning5 Minute Journal AppBonds that Make Us Free - Terry WarnerCreativity Inc - Ed CatmullHigh Performance Habits - Brendon Burchard Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

During the civil unrest of 2020, there's been a lot of talk about how to create safe neighborhoods for everyone. However, this isn't a new topic by any means. In fact, it's an issue that many cities have been dealing with for a number of decades.For example, here in Indianapolis, we're way ahead of the curve when it comes to homicides for the year. It's only June and we have had over 100 people killed. This curve has been rising year after year.Add to that the frustration people have with law enforcement and the systems in place for their accountability, and it only makes sense that there's protests.However, where many people draw the line is when those protests turn to violence. When protests turn to riots, that's where the message starts getting lost.So, if people want to make a change for the better, wouldn't it make sense that they do so in non-threatening manner?This session's guest, Commander Dale Brown of the Threat Management Center in Detroit, MI, believes that's the case. On top of this, through his experience of over 25 years, he also believes that when people know a bit about self protection, crime in neighborhoods tends to go down.In this session, Veronica and I learn why this is the case, and what society can do to erase the man made construct of race all together.If you're a peace loving individual and have wanted to have your voice heard, then perhaps Dale's message is for you.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What drew Dale to Detroit to teach the east side community how to defend themselves? 8:08When lots of people were leaving Detroit during the recession, why did Dale stick around and continue to develop the Detroit Threat Management Center? 12:04How does Dale see Detroit's current renaissance playing a part in the rather peaceful protests they're seeing? 19:50Since race is a manmade construct, what are some steps we as a society can do to get rid of it? 30:44How has Dale had to pivot during the pandemic? 35:11What are three books he gifts to others or tells them about? 39:23In the last few years, what's something Dale's started saying no to and why? 40:11What is something that's $100 or less that's changed his life? 49:02Is there anything he believed as an 18 year old but now realizes is completely inaccurate? 49:46How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 51:17 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Dale Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Uncover Your Personal MissionHulu Documentary Series "Abandoned" (Dale's on the last part of the last episode - 10)Jordan Harbinger AoL InterviewArt of WarBorn a Crime - Trevor NoahBone Conduction Earpiece Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

For many people, the main reason they don't start a business is simply because they don't want to (or feel they can't) sell. In fact, many of the most successful books in business are those that teach the reader how to sell. And interestingly, many of those books teach tactics that reinforce the reader's perspective of sales. This perspective being that sales is all about bypassing objections that a potential buyer would have.However, what I've learned in the last few years is that sales, when done right, is more about adding value or service to someone who needs a particular solution. Meaning that, if you're looking to develop a sales process, it needs to include a phase where you can ask questions from the potential buyer. It also needs to include a point where you suggest the solution based on the buyer's needs. And then, if they need help, they'll ask for it.This session's guest, Chris Spurvey, is all about that process. And, in fact, he suggests that ambiverts, who are people who aren't quite extroverts or introverts are the best equipped to do sales.Interestingly enough, most people who can't think of doing sales the "traditional" way, are, in fact, ambiverts.In this session, we learn from Chris why ambiverts like him, have this special power to be super successful at giving people what they want.If you've dreaded sales in the past because you don't want to come across as being sleezy or pushy, then this chat is one you don't want to miss.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Chris get over his initial perspective on sales? 12:19If someone wants to change their perspective on how to sell, what kind of mindset shift would help directly with that? 19:21What does he think about the concept of people trying to do the smallest amount of work for the greatest ROI when it comes to their effectiveness as a business owner? 25:34Why does Chris believe business systems are so important? 29:04What was the decision process like for Chris to write a book even though he didn't see himself as an author? 33:25Does he have advice for those who feel they're being pressed to write a book but they don't feel that they're an author at heart? 37:50What's Chris' pandemic pivot looking like and what has him excited about it? 40:27Which song, book, and film would he add to the national curriculum? 44:55Is there something he's been recently learning about he's excited to start implementing? 46:52What's something he'd like to do in his lifetime that no one knows about? 48:04Is there something that's changed his life for under $100? 48:50What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 49:48 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Chris Online: Website, LinkedIn, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Uncover Your Personal MissionGregory Diehl AoL PodcastReiss Motivation ProfileAndy Dix AoL InterviewThe Greatest Networker in the WorldMach2 with your Hair on Fire - Richard BrookBlueprint your Bestseller - Book Architecture MethodI Remember You - Skid RowShawshank RedemptionEvernote Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

As the world heads back to a post pandemic normal, more people find themselves wondering about getting ahead of the new status quo.As we move forward, once again many people are realizing (again) the future is uncertain. Just like security was a big concern after 9/11, corporate wellness is going to be a huge topic moving forward. Corporations, being the relatively static entities they are, prefer to have all their ducks in a row. The more predictable the future is, the better they look to their investors.So one would think that part of the new status quo is going to be maintaining a healthy workplace and workforce. Is a business capable of properly reacting to potential future waves of this (and other) diseases? For us creative entrepreneur types, we know that with uncertainty comes big opportunity. So that's why in the last couple of months, my business partners and I have been working on starting a wellness consulting business.If the corporations want to go digging for gold ( in wellness), then we're more than happy to help them find the tools they need.Even if you don't have the expertise to capitalize directly on the new status quo, there will be more than enough room for to indirectly capitalize on it.For example, perhaps you're an artist. Is there a way for you to use the technology everyone has become accustomed to using to get more people around your work? (Yes, virtual art shows...)As we speak with this session's guest, Greg Reid, Veronica and I learn a little bit about the mindset he's used in getting ahead himself - now and in the future.If you've not heard from Greg before, then today might be one of those days which changes the trajectory of those that follow.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Greg get in a position where he was able to capitalize on opportunities when they came along? 8:50What has having connections done for Greg? How can someone start getting ahead by building strategic connections? 17:46How does he stay relevant to all the people who's in the Switchboard? 21:48From Greg's perspective, why is good etiquette and preparedness so important to success? 24:07What behaviors should people work on if they're serious about building their own dream or an empire? 27:13What's Greg excited for in 2020? 35:23Who are his current top 3 influencers who have helped him get to where he's at today? 38:54What gift does he like giving others? 39:57How can someone tell the difference between a Credible Source vs someone who's trying to fake it until they make it? 42:18What's advice out there is a disservice to youth? 43:21What would be found in the "Guide to Being a Creative" handbook? 44:36According to Greg, what's it mean to live a life of Abundance? 46:07 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Greg Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Kennected - Automated LinkedIn Cold Connecting - The Right Way!

Here it is 2020, and a good part of the population scratches their head when the subject of Millennials and Gen Z comes up. With the pandemic completely changing how things are done in the working world for the foreseeable future, it would seem that these generations are going to be the ones left picking up the pieces and reassembling the economy in their own way.So what exactly does that look like? For the most part, we know what it looks like for entrepreneurs. But the usual 9 to 5 world is going to change drastically in the next 5 to 10 years. Like after 9/11, when we were all about ramping up security, are we going to now see a continued uptick in technology use specifically geared towards maintaining healthy workplaces? How will this change the workplace overall? Will things ever go back to "normal"?These are some of the questions Veronica and I ask this session's guest, Chris Tuff, author of the book The Millennial Whisperer.If you've not heard Chris before and you're into futurism, I think you'll really enjoy this chat.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What's his take on the responsibility he has a Xennial? 12:00When did Chris choose to get into marketing as his career? 16:20How is Chris working with leaders to reshape their internal company structures to engage with Millennials? 26:44What does Chris see in the future when it comes to technology playing an ever increasing role in daily work life? 31:47According to Chris, what's Shawshanking and what is its role? 36:20What other technology does he see playing a role in Millennial's lives in the not too distant future? 39:07Besides writing another book, what else is Chris looking forward to doing in 2020 as we move through the pandemic? 42:41Which teachers and influencers have helped Chris get to where he's at today? 47:16What's the biggest plot twist he's seen in his day to day life? 49:14What message in society is a disservice to youth? 50:46Is there something under $100 which changed his life? 51:06What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 51:39 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Chris Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, InstagramCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: FREE Resource - Uncover Your Personal MissionGet a Job (2016)Jason Beckerman (Shared the concept of Shawshanking with Chris)Devin Johnson’s AoL InterviewAntico PizzaTommy Breedlove’s AoL Interview Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

In a an usual time like we're going through right now, it's easy to be hyper responsive to everything that's going on around us. Practicing mindfulness is probably the last thing many folks are thinking about. In fact, I'd go on to say that many people are doing the opposite - they're in a constant state of panic. They're still focused on what we've been through, not where the world is going.But can you blame them? Many who were hanging on a thread from their day job have found themselves in a lot of hurt right now. Even small business owners and farmers find themselves having to do things they never thought they'd have to.What I've personally found out is this. If we can manage our stress in stressful times, then new solutions and new ways of looking at the world come more readily. We have to give ourselves room to find our own pandemic pivot. (Plus it always seems to me that survivors in zombie movies tend to see what the masses are doing, and do the opposite!)In this conversation with Kelly DiNardo, we learn about a time where she herself had to pivot earlier in her career. While it wasn't convenient at the time, it sure did prep her for future times of adversity.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was Kelly's "A-ha!" moments when it came to practicing mindfulness? 11:22What was the process like for Kelly in putting together her Yoga business? 17:37How does she find time to manage her two completely different businesses? 22:13Based on how she runs her business, what opportunities has she seen to grow and expand her business? 26:54What are her thoughts when it comes to achievement vs feeling shut in and scared during the pandemic? 33:13Even though we're dealing with the pandemic in 2020, what is Kelly still excited for this year? 39:24What are Kelly's top 3 influential podcasts she listens to? 41:23In the last few years, is there something specific she's learned to say no to? 42:35Is there an issue more people should be talking about right now, yet hardly anyone is with the pandemic? 43:16What's a tip for traveling? 44:42How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 48:02 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Kelly Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, InstagramCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Kennected - Meet Great People Automagically on LinkedInThe Daily Podcast via The New York TimesUltimate Health PodcastOn BeingRosie Acosta - Radically Loved Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

When it comes to the entrepreneurial mindset, most of the time we hear topics that the new business owner needs to know. It's great to know that there's so much support for folks new to the game. In fact, people like my unofficial mentor Pat Flynn and the crew over at Fizzle have made decent livings on helping these folks. (Which I admire because it's really hard to grow a reputation in this market segment. The market is already saturated and many folks don't or can't pay at this stage in the game.)However, there is market for entrepreneurs and business owners who have had a bit of success.

Business marketing online is still a bit of a mystery to many business owners. Especially when it comes to LinkedIn.In the past, we've had interviews with LinkedIn marketing experts Myr Bacun and AJ Wilcox about building groups and advertising on the platform.Those are great and cool strategies on their own, and I know they work. But it seems that whenever I go to LinkedIn, I'm always being blasted by 3 to 5 messages saying "Hey, nice to connect! Seems we know similar people. Do you need help with...?" Have you felt that way?As this session's guest, Devin Johnson puts it, it's simply not the way to do long term business. You lead with relationship first.So in this interview, we'll learn how Devin and his company Kennected are righting the ship when it comes to making meaningful connections online.Enjoy!

With the coronavirus outbreak, working remotely is starting to become a normal trend. In fact, I'd say it's moved the timeline up by 5 years or more until we see a lot more remote workers. However, not all virtual workers are from first world countries where being able to work remotely is considered a perk. Instead, they reside in countries where they might be in the middle of long term economic crisis. They have learned how to become virtual assistants or VA's so that they can bring in money than they'd get paid in their home country.To help those folks, today's guest, John Miles, and his partners at iWorker and Optimate, have built a network of VA's around the globe. These aren't just any VA's, though. They are VA's who actually are usually more than capable to handle what us solopreneurs would throw at them. In fact, a lot of them have degrees in the work that they do.In this interview with John, we find out why he and his partners felt they needed to start down this path and who might benefit from hiring from those in the network.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What's John's history in business and as an entrepreneur before starting iWorker and Optimate? 9:48What are some questions people need to consider before they bring on a VA or hire locally? 23:22Due to what his various brands do as social enterprises, has John considering making them B-Corp's? 31:19Which countries are iWorker and Optimate targeting in finding VAs to work with? 35:44How can people support what John and his co-founders are up to without hiring a VA? 38:09Is there anything exciting for John coming up in 2020? 43:30Who are three influencers he follows regularly? 44:48Who would be someone John would get starstruck by interviewing? 47:19What new habit has recently improved his life? 47:40What costs less than $100 that has changed John's life? 48:39Is there something he believed when he was 18 but doesn't today? 49:14What's a tip for traveling John has? 50:01How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 50:40 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: John Online: Optimate, iWorker, LinkedInCohost: Veronica KirinAoL Interview with local virtual assistant, Emily KellyWilmer Valderrama on Lewis HowesAoL Interview Chris Schwab Tim Ferris - 4 Hour Work WeekCharles Duhigg - The Power of HabitNeil PatelRamit SethiRichard Dawkins Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

As we grow more successful, it can be easy for power to go to our heads. We can start to think we're unstoppable. This is especially true on the grand scale when we see ethical issues in business headline the news. One right now, for example, is the rehabilitation of the Boeing 737 Max line of aircraft. It has turned into an epic crisis in the last couple of years for them as they simply have not done well in addressing the issue. Nor did they really do a great job of mitigating it either. Whoever made the decision to cut corners and create the software which caused a couple flights to crash, obviously shouldn't have cut those corners.Another example was back in 2008 when Lehman Brothers had to file for bankruptcy. Out of all the things that went on that year, I still remember watching the news as the threat of that particular crisis grew more inevitable. When it finally did, the market plummeted... as well as the savings and lifestyles of many people who thought they had done things right.Today's guest, Michael Ainslie, was one of the group of people that had to make the decision to file for Chapter 11. Sure, making the decision was tough, but it was the right thing to do.Being part of that board hasn't been his only rodeo, however. He was also the CEO of the internationally known auction house Sotheby's. Let's just say they had a few things they had to deal with during his time there as well.In his new book, A Nose for Trouble, he shares with us how he's been able keep his head through all the adversity in his career.In this chat, Andy and I get the chance to learn a few things you won't hear on any other interview of his!Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: If Michael wrote a screenplay for his life, where would the opening scene be? 9:42As a first hand witness, how do highly successful board members end up in a orange jumpsuit in a prison? 14:38What kind of people do these types of people hire as leadership for their companies? 16:29How was Michael able to keep himself from being consumed by the power he's had in his career? 20:38How does he suggest executives balance the line between the what's right and the needs of different stakeholders? 22:04What can Xennials and younger generations of entrepreneurs learn from the mistakes of leaders who have gone before them? 27:06What advice does he have to a company who's trying to rebuild their brand and reputation if they've been dragged through the media? 32:38What's Michael looking forward to in 2020? 34:34Who are his 3 top influencers are teachers who have helped him get to where he's at today? 39:54What's a gift he loves to give others? 40:29Is there a documentary that he'd recommend people watch? 40:26What's Michael's favorite social custom? 42:02How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 42:40 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Michael Online: Website Cohost: Andy Dix Session Sponsor: Fizzle - A REAL entrepreneurship community with REAL advice!

Return on Experience and Expertise, or RoEE, is something we all should realize we have. Whether you're more street smart or climbed your way up the twin towers of formal education and the corporate world, you do have experience which can serve not only you, but those around you.However, that said, it's up to us to realize what expertise can truly help others. Unlike our Passion, we don't get to choose our Purpose and where we fit with others.However, when we can pair up our Purpose with our Passion, then we have the seeds to greatness. Add it to a unique Process, and we have a winning formula for awesome Profit!Sound familiar? It should. I shared briefly about the 4 P's of the Ikigai in this blog post recently.Today's guest, David Bryant, is a prime example of someone who's not only found this sweet spot in his career, but also has been able to take advantage of it. How? By staying humble and learning lessons wherever or from whoever he can.In this chat, Andy and I get the chance to learn how he's done this over his career and some of the key things he's learned along the way.Enjoy!

When it comes to marriage and family counseling, one would think that the therapist loves to do what they're doing. Why else would they do it? It has to be a super fulfilling job in that you're doing all this great work with couples and helping them make breakthroughs critical to the relationship's survival.However, just like any other health related position, working with troubled patients can take its toll. It's so easy to take their problems home on top of the all the things that one has to cope with in their own life.And it's not just the health field - doing anything you love too intensely for a long time can lead to burnout.This is certainly the truth for this session's guest, Lisa Mustard.And, in fact, it's one of the reasons that she's started her podcast, The Therapy Show. In this chat, Veronica and I get the chance to learn how she's been able to package up her own life experiences in two hugely different arenas into what she's doing today. Not only that, but we also discuss the importance of self care regardless of our position.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: After getting started in the sports marketing arena, how did Lisa end up as a therapist? 12:27How has she been able to repackage her skill set as a therapist to being a coach? 17:45Are there any similarities with her therapy patients vs those that she coaches? 22:36What sparked Lisa's interest in starting a podcast for therapists? 25:36When it comes to building a new business, does Lisa think we should build on the side of our day job or build a runway first? 33:55Why does it take burnout for us to realize how to be happy? 39:12How does she feel like her work is helping others not fall down the stress rabbit hole? 42:37What has Lisa excited for 2020? 48:58What are three of Lisa's favorite influential podcasts? 51:05Which three books are her favorite to gift or tell others about? 51:38Which message out there is a disservice to youth? 53:21What is something that would be found in a Creative Handbook for Entrepreneurs? 54:22What's Lisa's secret to achieving personal freedom? 54:24 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Lisa Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Uncover Your Personal MissionTour DuPontGoal Digger Podcast - Jenna KutcherPractice of the Practice - Joe SanokMaybe You Should Talk to Someone - Lori GottliebDesigning Your Life: How to Build a Well Lived Joyful Life - Bill Burnett and Dave EvansUntangled - Lisa Damour Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

I can't tell you how many times in college I heard fellow students use the phrase "I'm going to take a nap and wait patiently for death" as a joke. And in reality, for many, life is simply something that has to be endured. However, I fully believe that finding your passion & purpose in life is a huge part of getting out of that life of quiet mediocrity.Since college, and especially after starting this podcast, I've come to the realization that individuals who have this figured out have overall a lot less stress in their life. Not only that, but they usually have a higher chance of being fulfilled by the work they're doing.This session's guest, Tommy Breedlove, has gone through it all. From being incarcerated early in life, to working at the C-suite level, to realizing that the more he wrote his own story, the less others controlled it. Today he helps others not only realize that fact for themselves, but helps them find their next level.In this chat, Andy and I get the chance to learn how he made that realization for himself, how he helps other men find their own way, and some pointers we can all use to start moving the dial a little bit more today.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What kind of legacy does Tommy want to leave? 7:47What was the defining moment which lead Tommy to his current path? 8:39Can something be said to someone who has fallen into a contentment coma to help them get out? 17:35What's the current state of men in America, and why did he focus to work them specifically? 20:49Is there a difference between boys, dudes, and men? 24:52According to Tommy, how do you start finding your passion & purpose in life and build a life of legacy? 28:17Does he have any recommendations for someone do to build a financial fortress and build a legacy? 32:12What are 3 favorite books he likes to give or tell others about? 42:36Is there anything he recently says no to? How did he come to that realization? 42:59Who's the most awe inspiring person he's met and why? 43:56What's something he'd like to do in his lifetime that no one knows about? 45:09What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 45:50 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Tommy Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixSession Sponsor: FizzleTommy’s Book - LegendaryBig Leap - Gay HendricksThink and Grow Rich - Napoleon HillWar of Art - Steven Pressfield Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

In general, politics is a topic that people are really engaged in or they want to keep away from it with a 10 foot pole. Personally for me, I'm a bit of a junkie. And in fact, the shows that I tend to listen to engage in political satire. They don't take themselves too seriously.I love that because it's such a break from the norm. Because when you think of politics today, you often think of this side vs that side. One side is right while the other side is wrong. One side is Trump and on the other side you have the Pelosi lead Democrats. This wasn't always the case.Today's guest, Andrew Heaton, is someone I started listening to sometime last year in his last podcast called There's Something Off with Andrew Heaton. That particular show concluded this past summer and since then he's been busy building his own show entitled The Political Orphanage. (He also has a new show called Alienating the Audience , Sci-Fi based show, which we'll talk a bit about in the interview.)Listen in as Andy and I get a chance to find out from Andrew what his process has been as he's been building his new platform. And what he can share with other creators in regards to getting on the national stage.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How does Andrew connect at a different level with his audience than most political commentators? 10:38Are politicians in DC the same people behind the scenes versus what we see in the news and media? 14:11What's Andrew's advice for a student to set themself up to work in Washington DC? 17:08What are some action steps he recommends to creatives, such as podcasters, who are in the hunt to get on a larger stage? 23:11How does he go about getting guests on his podcasts? 35:49Is there a certain way Andrew recommends to grow a contact list? 41:01What business lessons has he learned through his experiences as a standup comic? 56:50How has "always saying yes" affected him as a podcaster? 59:37What's Andrew looking forward to in the New Year? 1:02:12Which book, film, and song would Andrew add to the National Curriculum? 1:04:47What's Andrew do when he becomes overwhelmed or unfocused? 1:07:32What's a topic that would be found in a handbook for entrepreneurs if Andrew wrote it? 1:10:33Is there something he wished was still a thing? 1:12:12What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 1:12:45 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Andrew Online: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixSession Sponsor: Uncover Your Personal MissionAndrew’s 2 Podcasts - Alienating the Audience, The Political OrphanageUpright Citizens BrigadeHenry Hazlitt - Economics in One Lesson Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

Personal financial management is a topic that many people really don't want to touch with a ten foot pole. A lot of the time, the reason for this is that as a society, we're just not taught how to manage our own money. For those of us who are lucky to have extra to invest, we feel that we need to hire a financial advisor or investor to do the work for us.While that might be helpful, it's not a great plan to simply give up the responsibility for our own portfolio. Since the world runs on money, we all should have a good fundamental knowledge of how the game works.In this session, Veronica and I speak with Tess Wicks. Like many others, Tess didn't grow up really thinking about money. In fact, the only reason she started learning about the subject was through necessity due to her major and future career.However, that career didn't last long. After realizing she wasn't cut out of the 9 to 5 world and could help others with their knowledge of money, she set out on a mission to educate.In our chat, we learn about the illusion of job security, her unique digital nomad lifestyle, and why it's important to set goals in our finances as entrepreneurs.Having a healthy lifestyle is something that is brought up time and again in pop culture. However, with all the temptations of fast food, taking it easy, and dealing with stress, many people just simply struggle to do what's best for them.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Tess get her start in the financial world? 11:07Where did she find her first client as an independent advisor? 15:15What made her focus on helping self employed clients with personal financial management? 15:56How has Tess been able to get around the illusion of job security for herself and with her clients? 19:01What's the traditional "Digital Nomad" or "World Citizen" lifestyle look like for Tess? 27:16What are some things that someone needs to consider before they travel the world while working? 31:09How does setting goals and "paying yourself first" help her clients with their finances? 35:22What's Tess excited about in 2020? 42:04Who are three influencers or teachers that have launched her to where she's at today? 43:31What's a gift she likes giving others? 46:48What advice does she regularly hear adults giving children that she'd called BS on? 47:13What's her favorite social custom? 48:08What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 48:45 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Tess Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Fizzle - Start For Free Today!5 Minute Journal AppThe Wander Wealthy PodcastWander Wealthy RoadmapDane Maxwell/Andy Drish - The FoundationAshley Logan in ChicagoAmanda Boleyn - She Did It Her Way Podcast Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

Having a healthy lifestyle is something that is brought up time and again in pop culture. However, with all the temptations of fast food, taking it easy, and dealing with stress, many people just simply struggle to do what's best for them. However, once you do figure out how to live healthier and learn how to live a positive mindset, achieving your goals gets that much easier. Main reason why is that you won't constantly feel lethargic and out of energy.In this session, Andy and I talk with Cyndi Walter who figured out at an early age that looking at the positive side of things makes life not only easier, but more fulfilling as well.
