When it comes to my work here at New Inceptions, one of the most often asked questions I've received is "JC, how did you find your why?" 10 years ago, I wouldn't have really known what they were talking about. I hadn't really thought about my motivators in life. Sure, I had thought about my personality and what I was naturally attracted to doing, but not what actually goes behind that thinking.In fact, when I first heard Simon Sinek's "Start with Why" presentation, it made since how he was relating it to companies, but it hadn't really clicked for me how it related to people. That wouldn't be until later. However, someone it did click with at the personal level was the founder of the Why Institute, Gary Sanchez.In this chat, Gary's right hand man, Dan Dominguez shares with us in his own words where he was when he stumbled upon Gary's work and how Gary actually put the work together.More specifically we'll learn how Dan is now living his best life due to the work Gary has done as founder of the Why Institute.If you're still struggling to figure out your own Why, perhaps getting some time with Dan might be in your not too distant future? Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What were the circumstances that pushed Dan to start searching for a career change? 11:05Why did Dan actually decided to join Gary to help build the Why Institute? 24:46Are there certain questions the Why Institute employs to find someone's Why? 29:59What does Dan want for people to remember as the world continues past the pandemic? 38:53What are some of the things he's looking forward to moving forward with the Why Institute? 42:38Which three books does he share with other people? 45:07What message out there is a disservice to youth? 45:46Is there something he'd like to do in his life that no one knows about? 47:30Provided it was cost free, what ad would he place out in the world? 48:25How can someone quickly find out if they're already living their personal mission? 49:47 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Dan Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, InstagramCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: FizzleRoad Less Stupid - Keith Cunningham (Amazon Link)Heroic Leadership - Chris Lowney (Amazon Link)Play bigger - Al Ramadan (Amazon Link)Copper Canyon Races Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

In 2020, using Zoom has become commonplace for businesses and schools alike. Since so many people have become familiar with the platform, it only makes sense that there are ways we should or shouldn't use the platform. Whether you're a business leader, a member of a nonprofit, or a teacher, no one wants to attend a zoom meeting where the presenters aren't engaging.In this session of the show, Andy and I have the opportunity to speak with someone who has made it his mission to help others harness the power of the virtual stage.More specifically, the Trigger, Rich Bontrager, coaches his clients to be better presenters through time proven broadcasting techniques.In this conversion, we explore why his approach makes such a big difference when you're trying to seperate yourself from the pack in virtual presentations.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Even though Rich grew up with a stutter, how was he initially called into the speaking world? 10:16Where many people might use bad experiences as excuses to not overcome, Trigger has used them to catapult them to the next level. How has he been able to do that? 12:09What has Trigger learned from his past experiences which have made him a better communicator? 15:34How did he get started in pastoring? 16:52How can someone learn to regularly change of their pace a bit when it comes to speaking? 21:22What are some things leaders shouldn't hesitate to implement as we're going forward in 2021? 23:44How can someone come off as authoritative, confident, and natural on Zoom? 28:09What are common blunders business leaders make when they go onto the virtual stage? 31:39Where should we focus our eyes in a Zoom conversation? 33:46What are some things people should be looking forward to going forward in this new world of online stages? 37:40What in particular is Rich looking forward to as we move into the pandemic adjusted economy? 40:05Who are three speakers who have launched Rich to where he's at today? 42:49What's the biggest plot twist he's experienced in day to day life? 43:15What's something every high school student must know? 43:52Who gave him the best advice he's ever received? 44:13What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 44:43 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Rich Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram Cohost: Andy Dix Powered By: Uncover Your Personal Mission.

Self sabotaging behavior is a common theme when it comes to personal and business development (or the lack thereof). Whether it's the lack of willpower to get healthier, the determination it takes to go through college, or the focus it takes to build one's business, there's one thing that is certain when it comes to accomplishment: setting a goal is one thing - but actually achieving that goal is something completely different.In this session of the show, Ya'el Johnson and I get to talk to two completely different kinds of individuals who have made it their passion to help others figure out how to achieve goals like this.Through their app called the Consistency Chain, they're helping tons of people build good habits in place of the ones that have lead them to where they are now.In their recent book built on the same premise, The Consistency Chain for Network Marketing, authors George Campbell & Jim Packard suggest that the main reason that people don't do well with network marketing is that they simply haven't built the right habits to actually grow their business. Interestingly, George goes on to say that he was only successful when he realized he was the common denominator between all these opportunities.In this conversion, we explore how they came to that conclusion and some of the concepts one should consider when trying to achieve anything in this world - let alone building a network marketing business!Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: As enthusiasts of the industry, how did George and Jim get into Network Marketing initially? 12:55How do you know when you're working with the right business when it comes to network marketing? 21:18How did Jim & George realize they were on to something when they felt the 80/20 rule applies to those who are successful in network marketing? 26:24How do they give themselves milestones on a regular basis to keep them going in their journey? 30:17What are some of the ways that people are using the Consistency Chain app in their daily lives? 37:17What are some of the things George and Jim are looking forward to moving forward in 2021? 42:10Who are Jim and George's personal influencers and teachers? 45:23What's the biggest plot twist they've seen in their day to day life? 48:43Is there a particular gift they like giving others? 50:31What is something they've become good at saying no to? 52:33How does someone realize they're living their own personal mission? 53:59 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: George and Jim Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedInCohost: Ya’el JohnsonPowered By: Groove Funnels - Join Us in Exploring the power of this awesome new tool!

As we're getting started in this second year of potentially a two or three year pandemic "clean up" plan, there's going to be plenty of time for us to really adjust and think about where we fit in the world. It's a great time to develop our skills for success.What do I mean by that? Well, it's a forced transition period for all of us. What might have been our identity in the past, might not work in the PAE.That said, one group of individuals who all have to go through this major life change sometime in their career are professional athletes. Like our guest, Desmond "Dez" Clark says, if your identity was wrapped up into your job (as an athlete), you're going to have issues when you can't do that job anymore.Luckily for Dez, he knew who he was before his career as a professional athlete. So when he finished up, yes, there was a transition period, but he was the same Dez who used the game as a means to get what he wanted.In this chat with him, Ya'el and I learn a little bit of what he's learned over the years through these transitions and how he's been able to stay the course during his life using those experiences.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Where did Desmond's early leadership mentality come from? 8:46How did he develop a vision for his athletic life and able to stick to it? 12:11When did Dez realize it was time to transition into a new life/identity? 17:07Why does he believe his success wasn't a coincidence? 20:50How did Dez start realizing that failures aren't necessarily endings but just learning opportunities no matter the cost? 25:00How does he actively build relationships to help him and those around him get to the next level? 28:11Is there a secret to gauging if a conversation is a winning conversation? 29:43What's a bad day look like to Dez? 38:25What is he looking forward to in 2021? 41:06Which teachers have helped him get to where he's at today? 42:53If he could ask anyone living a dead a question, who and what would he ask? 43:11Which issue should be discussed more today, yet hardly anyone does? 44:01What advice does he hear adults give children which he'd like to call BS on? 44:21What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 45:02 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Desmond Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, InstagramCohost: Ya’el JohnsonPowered By: FREE GUIDE: Uncover Your Personal Mission Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

Welcome to 2021, everyone. What an interesting ride it's been... and we're not out of woods yet. However, if you're interested in building companies (and who isn't these days?), I'm really feeling hope in the air. Hope of a fresh start.If anyone knows about fresh starts, it's this session's guest Marek Zmyslowski. He's had a couple in his career - but one he's most notable for is the one he had to go through as he was writing his book Chasing Black Unicorns.In his book, Marek shares with us the story of why and how he built the Amazon of Africa... but then how selecting a bad business partner eventually got him in hot water with Interpol... and what he learned from the whole ordeal.In our conversation with Marek, new co-host Ya'el and I explore some of the items Marek has learned you want to do or don't do when you're building companies in up and coming countries.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was Marek's first business? 10:08What were some of the key steps he took to get some of his first ventures started? 14:23How did Marek come to the decision to buy out his business partner when things started going south? 17:54How was Marek able to move past the drama with Interpol and his business partner? 23:19In which ways has Marek been able to leverage his experience into positives today? 29:12What has Marek done for his own pandemic pivot? 32:04Who are three influencers or teachers which have helped him get to where he's at today? 35:47What's been the biggest plot twist he's seen in his day to day life? 37:56What's something he feels is going to change entrepreneurship in the future, and what specifically is he excited about? 39:15Which message in the world is a disservice to youth? 43:49How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 47:13 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Marek Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, InstagramCohost: Ya’el JohnsonPowered By: Groove (formerly Groovefunnels) - Get all your online marketing needs under one roof... currently for a lifetime deal!

As we're quickly hurtling towards 2021, many a young professional is finding it harder and harder to sync into the "real world" once they're out of college. For me, it's been over 10 years since I got out. And it took me quite awhile to get my bearings. I can only imagine what it's like now as the world is changing faster and faster outside the ivory tower of academia.Personally, I think 2020 has been a wake up call in more ways than one. Sure, we've been talking about pivoting all year since the virus officially dropped. But one thing we haven't discussed is the need for better networking skills.For yours truly, I struggled with this for awhile when I got out of school. In fact, I wasn't all that great at it even when I started this podcast. However, it was through the podcast, that I have been able to build my networking skills. It's definitely not the same perspective I have on the art as I did when I first entered into the "real world". It would have been nice to have been taught some of the stuff you'll learn in today's conversation in school.So, if you're a young professional, entering the workforce, or have an expendable entry level position, what can you do to hedge your bets? Well, I think a great start is to look at someone like Emily Mishler as a fine example of how to get yourself out there.Listen in as Andy and I find out how she's been able to reach the professional level she has as a late 20-something.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How was Emily able to be as productive as she was during her college years? 11:08How can a young professional leverage their network to build something they'll be really proud of? 15:44What are some common misconceptions that younger people have about networking? 18:37If someone wants to begin networking, what would Emily recommend as a starting strategy? 23:03What advice would Emily have for those who have multiple passions and is having a hard time focusing on single passion because they feel if they focus on one that it will be on the expense of the others? 29:11How has Emily been able to pivot in 2020? 31:46What is Emily's favorite opening line for networking? 35:12Which one book, one film, and one song would Emily add to the national curriculum? 36:06What has she been learning about recently that she's super excited to implement? 36:36Is there something specific that each high school student must know? 37:49What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 38:29 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Emily Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, InstagramCohost: Andy DixPowered By: Uncover Your Personal MissionCobra KaiThe Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (Amazon Link)Eat Pray LoveDon’t You Worry Bout a Thing - Stevie Wonder Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

As 2020 is coming quickly to an end, we're moving closer to favorable conditions to be creatively self employed. However, that might be easier said than done. For many, the pandemic has set people back in more ways than one. If we want to build confidence going into the new year and to be a player in the Pandemic Adjusted Economy (PAE), we'll likely need to rebuild and equip ourselves with new expectations of what's possible.Personally, I feel that 2020 has helped me reflect and improve my vision of what my businesses can be. In fact, we're improving the model of everything I'm involved with. I've certainly learned a few lessons from this past year. More so how to build businesses that are pandemic proof!However, I understand that not everyone has been able to gain that clarity. In fact, I think a lot of people who've lost their business aren't quite sure how to pick things up to rebuild. Or, even if they'd want to. Or maybe, someone's been waiting for the best time to start out on their own - but they're especially not sure if NOW is the best time to get started.Here's the thing: everyone who was affected by COVID-19 will still have to start from a level playing ground when we're given the greenlight to begin again.So don't let your fears hold you back. Reach out and find those who can be a catalyst for what you're trying to achieve.One such person I'd recommend reaching out to is this session's guest, Casey Sharperson. In this conversation, she shares with us how she made the jump BEFORE the pandemic hit and how she's already helping others do the same. Listen in as Veronica and I find out what it means to take charge of your story and use it to your advantage to move forward.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Who was Casey growing up and how would her own Disney movie begin? 9:44How did her mentor, Alice Carson Tisdale, affect her and where she saw her life going? 12:17Was there a "catalyst moment" during her corporate career which made Casey start on her own path? 18:41When it comes to working with Millennials, where does she start in the process of helping a client? 23:54How can someone use rejection as a catalyst for change and growth themselves? 28:05How has Casey pursued her vision as opposed to simply dreaming and hoping things will come true? 32:45What's it take to leverage one's own story to build a brand and fans who love them? 37:06If someone hasn't found their "story" yet, is it possible for them to build a brand? 40:30Has any of her clients realized their own personal story under her watch, and if so, what was the transformation like? 43:31What would the world look like if everyone had their own personal transformation experience where they actually step into who they are? 47:17What in particular is Casey focused on for the near future? 48:43Who are three influencers/teachers who have helped her become who she is today? 50:28What gift does she like giving others? 52:50Which issue does she believe more people should be discussing yet hardly anyone is? 53:48Which ad would she place into the world if it didn't cost anything? 55:16How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 55:38 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Casey Online: Website, Facebook, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: GroovefunnelsCasey’s Book - Dream, Build, Repeat (Amazon Link)Alice Carson Tisdale StoryMarshawn Evans Daniels Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

In 2020, it's been relatively easy to put on a few pounds since we're all more prone to living a sedentary lifestyle. That's why the Quarantine 15 has become a thing. However, that's really a bad excuse to not take care of yourself. So, for the holidays, I wanted to make sure we released a conversation with someone who can help us work-o-holic creatives be a bit more mindful of how we're treating ourselves during the last stretch of the year.While our guest Sameera Khan typically works with bariatric surgery candidates, she has some great tips for the rest of us.Listen in as Veronica and I explore a handful of tips we should keep in mind to keep ourselves from binging and/or staying on track for our holiday meal planning.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was the spark that drew Sameera towards a career in the health field? 11:03How can someone become more aware of where they're at in their own personal care? 15:52How would the work-a-holic use this knowledge in their day to day? 18:31What is someone facing when they're looking at bariatric surgery? 21:40What kind of actions does someone need to take after bariatric surgery to stay healthy? 26:00Why would someone want to shift their carb intake and what are some tips someone can do that? 28:03What is Sameera focused on for the rest of this year and going forward? 33:24Which 3 books does Sameera find herself giving or telling others about the most? 35:30Is there a documentary she recommends people check out? 36:17What is something she believed as an 18 year but has realized is completely inaccurate and why? 37:17Which three personal truths would Sameera want others to know? 38:52What does it mean to live a life of abundance? 40:40 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Sameera Online: Website, Facebook, InstagramCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Uncover Your Personal MissionRegain Be Gone (Amazon Link)Obesity Code (Amazon Link)Whole30What the HealthCuriosity Stream (free with your subscription to Scribd!)

In the last five years, I've learned a lot of things from doing this show. If someone is looking, I really think it can help someone live the life they want. However, while I might have learned plenty since starting the show, I'd say a big part of that knowledge is simply developing new perspectives on what I already thought I knew.While I've had several changes of perspective, three have stood out the most this year.The first big perspective change I had was that it really does take awhile to master a craft. For example, while I feel I know a lot about producing a great sounding show, there's always tweaks I can be making to improve the show as a whole. But it's only from that experience that I know to make those changes. You're not going to learn meaningful knowledge overnight.The second perspective shift I've received from the show was actually a big game changer. I realized the more people are doing work aligned with what's important to them in life and how others see them, the closer they are to doing work that isn't really... work.And the third realization came from understanding this past year one thing: The more people you meet and let into your life, the more opportunity you have to grow.I share those three perspectives with today's guest, Justin Breen.In fact, when I realized he was building his business on these three core beliefs, it occured to me that I should probably embrace them more myself.Listen in as he shares with Veronica and I why these beliefs are important to him and how they've empowered him to live the life he's proud of.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What initially drew Justin to a career in journalism? 9:13In 2017 Justin realized there was a shift in journalism. What happened that made him realize it was time to start to live the life he desired? 11:43What inspired Justin to write his book Epic Business the way he did? 18:04What are some of the things someone should expect to learn about in his book? 19:53How can someone put their family needs first when they believe the work that they're doing is supporting their family long term? 24:01How important is a knowledge of PR and media connections in business success? 31:09For someone who's just starting out in their business, what should they know about being more respectful of journalists and building relationships with them? 34:26How did Justin learn the skill of leading with relationships in building his business as opposed to being highly transactional? 37:58What does the future of BREpic look like and what is he looking forward to? 43:25Who are Justin's favorite teachers who have helped him get to where he's at today? 45:21Which documentary would he recommend people check out? 45:37What's the best advice he's ever received? 45:58Is there an issue more people should be paying attention to? 46:12What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 46:36 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Justin Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, TwitterCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: KennectedGreg Reid AoL InterviewEpic Business - Justin Breen (Amazon Link)Three Feet from Gold - Greg Reid (Amazon Link)Kolbe A IndexDocumentary: Thirteenth Justin's Networking GroupsProvisors (Local chapters around the country)Strategic CoachEntrepreneur's OrganizationAbundance 360 (Elon Musk level) Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

Believe it or not, but there's a lot of people in this world who are afraid to think big. The reason for this is pretty simple... at least to them. Why think of making a huge impact when you can't even get your own life straight?What I've learned is that having big goals and dreams actually helps one deal with the now. If we have a worthwhile goal, it allows us to prioritize it. And that, allows us to not prioritize what's good now... or at least the actions that might self sabotage us in the long run. In other words, if you have an elephant to eat, that's how you eat it - one bite at a time.In this session with friend of the show, with newly married Ya'el Johnson, Andy and I chat with her about what she's learned about life and success as she's taken control over her own life and destiny. This is a great lesson if you're new to the self development world, but also a great reminder for those of us who might feel down due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19. Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How does Ya'el remember getting into the personal development space? 10:46According to Ya'el, why is it necessary for people to control what they can in their lives? 12:10What tips does she have for someone whose been living a horror story and are trying to get out? 19:25What got her interested in aiding in homelessness in the town she's living in? 23:33How can someone tackle a big project like homelessness in their own community? 27:48What can we expect to hear from Ya'el's podcast? 35:01What's going on for Ya'el in the not too distant future? 39:43Who are her three influencers or teachers who have helped launch her to where she's at today? 41:25What is the most powerful question she likes to ask her coaching clients? 41:59What message is out there that's a disservice to youth? 43:29How does Ya'el deal with getting overwhelmed? 46:22What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 47:50 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Ya’el Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixPowered By: Uncover Personal MissionBrendon Burchard - Millionaire MessengerRegis Philbin's passing and effect on the South Bend Community Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

It's said that college can either teach you what to think or how to think. And in my case, I'd like to believe that it taught me how to think. But looking back, especially this past year, I've realized when it comes to creative thinking, my Purdue career might have failed me. Not because I didn't get anything out of it. I did. However, when I got out of grad school, I found myself trying to build staircases out of information.That's just not how the world works. Especially when you're trying to start or restart a business.In fact, when you're learning something new, using a circular or global way of learning to connect the dots might make more sense to utilize than a linear model.In this session with Emmy award winning documentarian Lois Stark, Veronica and I chat with her about what what she's learned about shapes and patterns in nature, and how those relate to our ability to think now and in the future.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What fostered Lois' interest in becoming a documentarian? 8:38Are there specific ideas people can remember as their world continually shifts around them? 11:57How can we get a little higher to see beyond the divisions of mankind? 24:11How can adults reshape their mindset so we can access the future before it unfolds and possibly influencing it based on what we know from the past? 29:11What advice would she give to business owners in riot zones who want to stay in business, but also need to be cautious about how they engage with their community? 41:32What is Lois working on now and what does she expect for its impact in the future? 47:17Who are three of Lois' influencers or teachers who have helped her get to where she's at today? 52:47What are three books she gifts or tells others about? 56:51In the last five years, which belief, behavior, or habit has most improved her life? 59:42What happens regularly today which would horrify a person from 100 years ago? 1:01:35How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 1:03:28 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Lois Online: Website, Facebook, TwitterCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Fizzle - Use a Roadmap to create your business with different thought processes in mind!Synthesized DNA to store dataJoseph Campbell - Power of Myth; Hero with a Thousand FacesCarl Jung - Man and his Symbols Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

There's a lot to be said when it comes to having a personal breakthrough. In fact, having one might just change the rest of your life. However, when it comes to having a breakthrough through an identity shift, what does that actually mean? Shouldn't a breakthrough come before having a change of identity?Interestingly, according to today's guest, Rob Scott, you can find a way to change your perspective on who you are and how the world influences you. Not only that, but when you do, the world can become a much more friendly and/or productive place.In this session, Andy and I chat with Rob about how he could have had all the reasons to be a failure at life, but instead used identity shifting techniques to become the person he is today.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Rob discover his fundamental shift? 9:35What kind of identity shifting techniques did he have to use to get to where he's at today? 15:14What mindset issues does Rob typically see while working with his clients? 22:17There's three steps to changing one's limiting beliefs: awareness, a new choice, and a subconscious pattern. What do those mean, exactly? 23:51How does someone install a new lens in how they see the world? 26:34What would it be like working with Rob when he'd be helping with identity shifting? 38:04What is Rob looking forward to in his work? 50:09Is there a power coaching question Rob likes to ask his coaching clients? 52:02What are three books Rob gifts or gifts to others? 53:05Why is self sabotage such a problem amongst most human beings? 54:10What's one thing every high school student must know? 55:44Is there a secret to achieving personal freedom? 56:52 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Rob Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixPowered By: Uncover Personal MissionDavid Bohm - J.

When you're starting anything in the business world, it's a really good idea to know who your target audience (or avatar) is. Some businesses might have many options, while most actually have a handful or less.Generally speaking, when you're starting a podcast, it's no different. Sure, there's a few podcasts out there that practically anyone can listen to, but for the most part, shows need to be tailored to the audience. This is especially true if the host isn't well known.When this session's guest, Joe Sanok, started his podcast, not many people knew who he was outside of his therapy work. However, with a podcast name of Practice of the Practice, it only makes sense that people who were looking to build their private practice would find his show.In this session, Veronica and I chat with Joe about the importance of knowing your audience and successfully building a brand around their needs.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What lead Joe to realize he had to retire from his therapy practice to build his current business of Practice of the Practice? 9:49How did he realize it was time to sell the therapy practice that he had been building for years? 13:44What inspired Joe to start his podcast in the first place? 15:34Is there anything in particular he's learned by running a practice that he can apply to what he's doing today? 17:16What ideas does he think keep people back from creating something which has a high level of scale and influence? 18:56When someone believes they have limits in their lives and business, what questions should they be asking themselves if they want to move forward? 20:47How can someone make a podcast about an industry that might seem too limited in scope? 23:56Are there key elements a new podcaster should consider if they're starting a show in a particular niche? 26:25Has Joe had to go through any particular pivots this year? 40:28If he could add one song, one book, and one film to the national curriculum, what would they be? 42:35What's a message that's out there which is a disservice to youth? 43:42What's something that costs less than $100 which has changed his life? 44:06Is there something he'd like to do in his lifetime that no one knows about? 45:23What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 45:54 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Joe Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Fizzle (Community for the Newpreneur!)Kelly HigdonJoe's Course: Podcast Launch SchoolFireball - Pit BullMichael Pollins - How to Change Your MindThe Untold History of the United StatesGriffin Wrap around microphone shield Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

When it comes to the stock market, the most knowledge people typically have is letting someone else manage their portfolio. Robert Kiyosaki strongly urges people not to do this because, generally speaking, those that do manage other people's money do so in whatever way they can earn the most commission. So, where does someone look if they're interested in finding out more about day trading for beginners?For me, this has been an answer I've not been able to find a solution to for the entirety of this show. We've had plenty of guests who have built their businesses in the B quadrant, and we've had several reality stars who have built a great portfolio in the I quadrant. However, we've never had an expert on whose focus is helping those who want to build wealth through paper assets. Until now.More often than not, people generally build an S quadrant business, scale it through the B quadrant, and then take their profits and buy assets in the I quadrant.However, there's no rule that says you can't start slowly in the I quadrant and then build a business helping others do the same in the B quadrant. In this session Andy and I learn how our guest Jason Brown ended up doing just that with The Brown Report and Power Trades University.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Jason get started in the stock market? 13:14How does someone know if they're investing in a good investment in financial education? 20:59Why should someone even think about passive income in general? 27:06What are some keywords someone who wants to make money on the stock market should be paying attention to? 29:51What kind of personal traits should someone have if they're considering getting involved with the stock market? 32:37Is there something specific about Jason's process that works for him and others? 38:05How can someone convert their business' profits into another revenue stream successfully? 41:33What is Jason looking forward to in his business and the market? 45:48Which podcasts are his top 3 most influential? 47:37Is there something he's gotten better at saying no to? 48:43What's something he's learned about recently and excited to implement? 50:49What is one concept every high school student must know? 52:32Is there a secret to living a life of abundance? 54:28 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Jason Online: Website, Power Trade University, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixPowered By: KennectedScience of Getting RichIncrease Your Financial IQThink and Grow RichSPI PodcastAmy Porterfield’s Marketing Made EasyRick Mulready - Art of Online Business Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

On the show, we've asked several of ours guests a particular question when we know they've had the answer. And that question is simply this "How did you get on TV?"Interestingly, there's been a few different answers. But the one thing which was common between all of them was that they had a compelling story. The other part was that they networked into the spot.Now, I get what that means. It means that you either found someone you knew who knew the person you were trying to connect with. Or, you randomly connected with someone who could get you on. One's a little more intentional, however, both have the same result.However, what if you don't know where to start in doing that? Sure, there's courses that can teach you how to network with the right people. But wouldn't it be easier if you could just reach out to someone who could help?If you believe you're looking for that kind of person, then today's guest is someone you should connect with.Sabrina Santucci has the network and the skillset to help you on local TV and potentially help you go national. As she says, there's different strategies for each.Listen in as Veronica and I learn more about the key things we need to keep in mind as we look to get on TV.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How'd Sabrina end up in journalism? 8:52What helped her realize that she should strike out on her own? 9:46Has the freedom of the local TV affiliate been taken away as media companies grow? 11:57Has she had a process of building "hype" for stories she's done in the newsroom? 15:07What does Sabrina recommend for pivot businesses who want to build more cohesion with their audience? 19:22If someone wants to be featured on their local morning show, how should they go about doing that? 24:31What are some tips Sabrina has for someone who's new to media? 28:42Who are three influencers or teachers who've helped her get to where she's at in life? 33:19What is her favorite social custom? 34:37What's something she'd like to do but no one knows about? 35:44How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 36:13 ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Sabrina Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedInCohost: Veronica KirinPowered By: Uncover Your Personal Mission Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.

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.
