Sometimes, a person is laid off and uses the skill that they are professionally known for to make a living on their own. However, there are other times where someone is called to do what they know they're meant to do. They have an internal pull to go a different way than they have their entire career.For today's guest, that last one description is definitely the case.

Jared Latigo – Living Debt Free – Why Practical Minimalism Might Just be Your Ticket to Freedom (AoL 138)
One of the reasons many people become self employed is because they believe they can have more freedom working for themselves. Whether that's more time for family or the ability to dictate what they do in a given day - they're looking for more autonomy.However, as we get more and more successful, we have a decision to make. Do we want to scale up and bring more onto our team or stay at the level we're at because that's our sweet spot?It's really hard to fight the urge to scale up - especially if part of the way that you measure success is through an increase in income and the ability to buy bigger and better things.But what if finances didn't enter into the equation of success? What if it stayed at what was important to us at the beginning - to do what we want when we want? Not to be pressured by keeping up societal norms - but to spend time with those we care about and/or traveling?This is the life that today's guest Jared Latigo has crafted for himself and his family.

Antonio Smith Jr – The Making of the Mentor: Escaping Poverty & Building Others Up (AoL 134)
When someone hits rock bottom, they usually have a choice to make. One, they can blame everyone but themselves for what has happened to them. Many times this prevents people from moving on from where they're at.They can then choose to make the other choice. They can realize that they're actually the one in control of where they're at and make it their mission to get out of that situation and never come back.The term "rock bottom" is a relative term. Rock bottom for one person can be quite different than rock bottom for someone else.For some people, a simple habit change can be enough to help them get out of their situation. But on the other hand, the person might need a complete mindset overhaul.For today's guest, he was more of the latter. After being homeless through the ages of 6 to 16, he thought his only way to get ahead was to excel at football. When an injury killed his chances to get a scholarship, he felt stuck. Luckily, a mentor stepped up and taught him that he had a gift of communication.Ever since then, he's been on a mission to develop this gift. Doing so has given him opportunities he might not have ever considered as an athlete.Join Harrison and I as we talk with Rev. Antonio Smith Jr. about this transition and how others can make a positive impact in their community!Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Why does Antonio still feel like an immigrant to the America even though he was born in the US? 10:34 How did he find his first mentor growing up and what are his thoughts on mentorship through life? 12:42 How does Antonio reach out and help those who are living lives of quiet desperation? 26:35 Is there a secret in finding opportunities to work with celebrities like Antonio has? 32:21 Is it possible to balance Christian values with business values? 37:29 How does he emotionally deal with it when he knows that only a fraction of the people who listen to him actually take his advice and act with it? 41:30 What's Antonio looking forward to and excited for in the future? 46:36 Who are his Favorite Top 3 Influencers? 54:28 Who would he have dinner with, living or dead? 54:38 What is a habit or belief that has improved his life in the last 5 years? 54:47 What's a gift he likes giving others? 55:02 What's something he wants to do that no one knows about? 55:14 How can someone make a difference in their community? 55:33Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Antonio Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube Cohost: Harrison Painter Session Sponsor: Fizzle - The Hurdle Between FREE and PAID Antonio’s GoalCast Video Michael Merritte Joel Osteen Barbara Corcoran on Shark Tank Les Brown $100k ConferenceSHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Why High Performers No Longer Perform HighlyProfit over PopularityKeep the Wrong People AwayFrom Where You Are to $100kThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.
