However, we're not just talking about performing a particular skill like you would in a job, though. In fact, it starts with building one's mindset. And one way to work on one's mindset is through the form of practicing mindfulness or perform meditation.In this session, we're talking to Manuj Aggarwal who knows all about this world. Interestingly enough, when he lived in India, he never had an interest in this knowledge.

Small business accounting is a topic that many entrepreneurs needlessly struggle with when they're getting their feet wet with running a business. For me, I have a simple tracking system of my expenditures. And usually, when it comes to invoicing, I usually opt to get paid on the front end. Outside of that, I really don't have too much to keep track of.However, I realize I'm not a true representation of most business owners. Most business owners need a platform that can do more than AR/AP. They might need something that takes care of payments and is a CRM on top of that. A one stop location for all of your financial bookkeeping.That's where Freshbooks comes in.In our chat today, Matt Baker, VP of Corporate Strategy and International Expansion at Freshbooks, shares with us what numbers of business owners should be paying attention to.We also discuss the process of de-risking the move to self-employment as well as what he'd recommend to entrepreneurs starting out in the Midwest.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:If Disney were to make a movie about Matt, what it's genre be and how would it begin? 6:42 What's Matt's thoughts on going to college in today's career climate? 12:15 How can someone de-risk the move to self-employment? 16:30 What would he recommend to folks wanting to start a business in the Midwest? 20:53 Is social media creating an unrealistic vision of what it takes to be an entrepreneur? 24:55 Who's a realistic role model someone can follow to learn to start their business? 28:04 How safe is being a W2 employee for the foreseeable future? 29:59 What are some steps that someone can do to take control of their career? 33:56 What financial numbers should a small business owner pay attention to? 37:42 When things are going wrong for businesses in their finances, where does it typically go wrong? 42:18 What does Matt see himself doing the rest of 2019 and beyond? 44:49 What 3 influential podcasts does he listen to on a regular basis? 48:16 One gift Matt likes giving other people? 49:17 What's an issue that more people should be talking about? 50:35 When Matt becomes overwhelmed or unfocused, what's he do? 51:50 What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 53:06ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Matt Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTubeCohost: Andy DixSession Sponsor: FreshbooksHopeful Hoosier PodcastBreakfast Lecture Series - Creative MorningsOnward Nation PodcastDose of Leadership PodcastConscious MillionaireRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:#imakealiving Los Angeles PreviewCreating a Genuine Brand in the Digital WorldBill Morrison on Learning on the FlyHow to Avoid Small Business BankruptcyThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

When it comes to peak performance, most experts on the matter suggest that we learn how to care for ourselves, plan, and execute accordingly. However, even the most disciplined of us will have problems from time to time. Whether it's a physical ailment or a mental breakdown, we all have issues from time to time. Thankfully, there's some supplements on the market that can really impact your mental state. In fact, some of them contain some of best nootropics in existence.If you're not familiar with term nootropics, Veronica and I weren't either before this interview. However, the way that our guest, Prady Tewarie, described them, it almost sounds too good to be true! Something better than coffee?! Blasphemy!In today's conversation, Prady shares with us his journey in starting his business Azoth, one of the fastest growing nootropic supplement companies today. What's cool to me is that his entire journey in starting his business has been rather organic. He didn't force it by starting a business first and then finding a product. In fact, he did it the way that it should be done.If starting and growing a business based on your interests is something you're wondering if you should do, let Prady's story inspire you to give it a shot.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:After spending so much time going after a law degree and becoming a lawyer, what inspired Prady to become an entrepreneur? 9:32How did he realize that fitness was essential to being in the right state of mind for his business, partners, and clients? 11:46Where did the idea for Azoth come from? 14:56How did Prady come to realize that systems were critical to building his business? 21:44How did Prady find himself getting involved with Real Estate Investing? 33:10What is he looking forward to in the end of 2019 and beyond? 40:40If he could add one book, one song, and one film to the national curriculum, what would they be? 42:33One thing under $100 that has changed his life? 44:07What's a believe, behavior, or habit that he's started in the last 5 years that's helped him improve his life? 46:16What's something he believed when he was 18 but now feels is inaccurate? 47:44What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 49:19ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Prady Online: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Uncover Your Personal MissionAudacious Entrepreneur on the Move PodcastNootropicsRay Dalio - PrinciplesJohn Warrillow - Built to SellRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Prady and Justin Hall on Having the Right Info on SupplementsEnlightened Millennial: Why Hard Work Is Not Enough!Should I Quit my 9-5 and Start My Own Business?The Reason You’re Not Achieving WealthThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

For many people, starting a consulting business is something they've thought about doing at one or another. But just like most entrepreneurial endeavours, many don't get started because they don't know the way to find real success. And many times, they don't know anyone who is a "successful" consultant to learn from.In my experience, there are a few well known names out there that come to mind when you're talking about becoming a decent consultant.Today's guest is one of those names.Michael has been a consultant since the age of 19 and since then, he's been honing his craft and helping others along the way. Since 2007, he and his cousin Sam have empowered 34,000 people from over 80 countries with their company Consulting Success.To Michael and Sam, success is not about numbers or material gains. Instead, it's about being in a place where money isn't a concern anymore. It's the ability to go out to enjoy a meal or a trip with family. It’s having the certainty you need – in an increasingly uncertain world – to take charge of your future. It's the freedom to live life on your own terms.If consulting is something you've thought about getting started with, I'd highly suggest getting to know Michael in this chat with Veronica and me.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How has his family and traveling across the world played a role in Michael's career? 8:54What was the trigger for Michael and his business partner to take their consulting work online with Consulting Success? 14:05How can consulting set entrepreneurs free? 18:31What models are available for consultants to use with their business? 20:34What are the 6 principles of running a successful consulting business? 24:56What does making better decisions within a consultancy mean? 27:46How does someone know what to offer and how much it should cost when they're selling their expertise to others? 36:50What is Michael excited about in the rest of 2019 and beyond? 42:41What is one book, film, and song he'd add to the national curriculum? 44:38Is there anyone he could interview that would cause him to be starstruck? 48:06What message is out in the public that is actually a disservice to youth? 49:06In the last 5 years, what new habit or behavior has most improved his life? 50:26What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 52:44ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Michael Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: NameCheapClickfunnelsRussell BrunsonMichael's Interview of Blair EnnsMomentum - Early Stage Course for ConsultantsSiddhartha - Hermann HesseNessun Dorma - PavarottiJoe PolishDan SullivanStephan Spencer - Get Yourself OptimizedRolin Fraser - Business LunchDustin Matthews - Get Wealth FitBloomberg - Masters in BusinessImpact Theory - Tom BilyeuMichael’s Free Guide to Growing a Consulting BusinessRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Avoid Information Overload by Using the ACTION ApproachThe Unprofessional Professional - Your Thoughts?Veteran Consultant TestimonialFrom Corporate World to ConsultingThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

People get involved in non fiction writing for a number of reasons. In the thought leader space, the number one reason books are created is for their ability to be a lead generator. Many times, they'll be at the front of a sales funnel that leads to higher and higher priced products such as courses and live events.However, sometimes the book is the end message. And for me, before I got into the content production world, I always thought that was point of a book. The point was to actually increase the awareness of your readers. The book was the end... not the means to an end.But, as a good authorpreneur knows, you can have the best of both if you really care to make the effort. You can create something of value while at the same time using it as a tool to grow your business.This session's guest, Lindsay Whiting, is all about helping writers do just that. She finds joy in helping new writers write a good book while at the same time helping them navigate the publishing waters.If writing a valuable non fiction book is something you've wanted to do and your goal isn't to just be an Amazon Best Seller, then you'll get a lot out of this interview.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:Where'd Lindsay get her start in literary and publishing work? 6:31What inspired her to start her first business? 15:14How did she get the idea to become interested in the idea to help others with their book writing process? 20:30What does she feel are the most common mistakes that authors make when they're entering the publishing space? 28:30What is Lindsay excited for in the not too distant future? 47:31What are her top favorite books that she gifts or tells others about? 51:51Is there a specific gift does she like giving others? 52:51What would she like to see popular still today? 53:39What's something that every high school student must know? 53:55How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 55:00ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Lindsay Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedInCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Fizzle - Start Making an Income based on Your Expertise!Living Into Art: Journeys Through CollageSelf Publisher's Book PlanThe Awakened WomanBiology of BeliefWhat is Epigenetics?Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Lindsay on Selecting a Good Book Designer:Lindsay on Finding Book Models for Your BookVeronica's TEDx TalkStories of Elders: The DocumentaryThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Business ownership comes in many forms. The goal of this show has always been to expose the listener to as many ways to start earning 6 or 7 figures a year. In the last session, our guest, Chris Prefontaine, built his income generating machine through real estate investing. Then, in session 150, we had Corbett Barr on who told us about how he managed to make Fizzle from the knowledge he knew about monetizing traffic online.In this session, I had the chance to speak with an influencer here in the Indianapolis area about his background in various businesses including multi-level marketing (MLM).As you guys probably know, I've been a fan of properly ran MLM groups for years. For instance, way back in session 23 of the show, Laila and I had the opportunity to interview soon to be Amway Diamond Mark Nathan.What he and today's guest, Jeff Gamble, can tell you is that a large part of being successful in the network marketing arena is affiliating yourself with great people.Pair this experience of his with traditional business and the result is someone that knows a lot about what it takes to be successful entrepreneur and leader.But don't think that this journey of his has been easy. He's had more major setbacks than anyone I know.Even if you're not interested in getting involved with an MLM company, let his story be one of inspiration to you in whatever you're pursuing.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How was Jeff initially exposed to the multi-level marketing industry? 9:14 What life event made him change his perspective and look at other ways of making income? 16:02 When it comes to network marketing, what kind of benefits does Jeff believe associates get? 44:14 What are some things that people should consider when getting started with a MLM company? 53:21 What's Jeff looking forward to in the not too distant future? 58:57 Who are three influential people who have help get him to where he's at today? 1:01:39 What job or business would Jeff like to try out for a day? 1:01:49 What's the smallest decision he's made that's had the most impact in his life? 1:02:05 Is there something that every high school student should know? 1:02:25 What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 1:02:45ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Jeff Online: Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTubeSession Sponsor: Uncover Your Personal MissionMichael O’Neal interviews his MLM mentor David Wood317 Holistic HealthTony RobbinsJim RohnJohn MaxwellRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:How to Fix Your Credit:John Maxwell's Law of Leadership #20 - Explosive GrowthGoing Executive Director Show Episode 78Jeff Working Out and Getting Max Gainz!Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

If you've ever read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, you probably know that the author, Robert Kiyosaki gained his wealth in Real Estate Investing (REI). Since the release and rise of popularity of the book, there's been all kinds of methods revealed to the general public about how to make passive income. There are two passive income quadrants: Investing (I) and Business (B).When it comes to passive income, we're usually thinking of the B quadrant. For example, most of us are familiar with the thought leader approach. They create content, develop a tribe, and provide services or products to that tribe to help them achieve more. The larger the tribe, the more potential one has of making a good income.Yet others might be more familiar with drop shipping through eBay or Amazon. Pretty much the same idea, but instead of developing your own tribe, you sell to the customers on those sites. Because of that, you have to share a percentage of what you earn with the company.A hybrid of both of these is using Facebook ads to get your name out there to Facebook users so that they can convert in your sales funnel.As for the I quadrant, it tends to stay off limits to most people who are seeking passive income.Mainly because most people think that to work in that quadrant, we have to have money available to invest.Truth is, that's not necessarily the case.In fact, today's guest, Chris Prefontaine, has one of the coolest systems I've seen to help people develop wealth in the I quadrant.In this session of the AoL Podcast, Veronica and I learn how it's indeed possible to build a passive income portfolio without using money from banks or our own pocket.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:What did Chris learn from being around his dad's business growing up? 9:06What are some of the benefits in having a family owned business? 10:17How does Chris enable those in his business to succeed? 11:30What's his perspective on helping charities with a new business? 12:44How was getting started in Real Estate Investing (REI) different than it is today? 15:01What are some strategies he recommends for people just entering the market or already have holdings and don't know what to do next? 20:31Is there a way to prep oneself for another recession? 22:37What does it means to buy and sell on terms? 23:58What's Chris' advice when it comes to working with agents as an Real Estate Investor? 30:49Is there ever a good time to get into commercial real estate investing? 32:00What's the day to day operation look like when you have to hang onto an investment property for years? 34:03Is there a good way in keeping up with all the laws, ordinances, and taxes? 35:32What's Chris looking forward to in the not too distant future? 37:21What podcasts have influenced or inspired his own podcast? 38:33What's a book, film, and song he'd add to the national curriculum? 39:45Is there something he's learning about right now that he's looking forward to implementing? 40:49What's one thing every high school student must know? 41:32How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 41:51ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Chris Online: Website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Smart Real Estate CoachChanakya and the Art of the Getting RichPredictive ROIOnward Nation PodcastMitch StephenShoulders of TitansPrinciples by Ray DalioRudyAC/DC - ThunderstruckGet Your Free Smart Real Estate Coach Book hereCheck out the Free Smart Real Estate Coach Webinar hereRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:What does it take to Crush It in REI?:How to Communicate with BuyersDeal Structure Sunday: Part of the SREC Origin StorySREC Podcast Episode 103 with Mike MakredesThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.
Having the knowledge about different personalities is a bit of a super power. When you know someone's personality and personal motivation, you can understand what makes them tick.

Life has a way of making us rethink the actions we're taking. Whether it's in school or on the job, in life, or even while we're working on our business. That's where the saying "When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade!" comes from. Because it's when we have these obstacles in our life, we often wonder if we're doing the right thing. We wonder if maybe the universe is trying to tell us something.This is why knowing who we are, what our strengths are, and how we can help others is so vital to our success. It's because we know how we fit in the world, that we're able to justify doing the work we're meant to do - even when it gets hard and we're given reasons to not do it.In this conversation with today's guest, Kim Trathen, we learn about all the things she had to go through as she was developing her business in 2018. She had plenty of reasons to put her blossoming business on the back burner. However, because she knew what she was good at and how she could help others, it gave her the strength to keep pushing forward.So join Veronica and I was we talk with Kim about this journey of hers and how you can apply it to your own life and business.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:What was the process that Kim went through to start her business? 7:38How has she been able to deal with life's challenges as she's been starting her business? 13:36How does she address limiting beliefs with her clients? 25:35In what way does passive income factor in her business? 31:08How does social media come into play with her clients? 39:46What is Kim looking forward to the rest of the year? 44:32What is one song, one book, and one film that should be added to the national curriculum? 47:48What's the best advice that Kim has ever received? 50:58Which social custom is Kim's favorite? 51:24What advice does she hear adults giving children she'd call BS on? 52:04What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 53:08ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Kim Online: Website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Fizzle - Hear how Others Get Through their ObstaclesMike Michalowicz - The Pumpkin PlanYou are a Badass at Making Money - Jen SinceroLudacris - Money MakerTEDx Talk by Radhakrishnan Pillai on Money MindsetRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:How to show up when you’re busy, tired, or just don’t feel like it…The #1 Reason You Aren’t Where You Want to be In LifeHow to Really Use Social Media as a MLM’er#GirlsTalkBusiness 25 with Kristen LynchThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Back in session 55, Laila and I had the opportunity to pick the brain of Summer Edwards. Outside of Veronica (who was still running her tech company), she was the first entrepreneur I had on the show who we could label as a social entrepreneur. This type of entrepreneur is someone who not only creates a business, but that business could be called a social venture - a business that has a social mission empowering it.Since then, I've met all kinds of social entrepreneurs and they all have one thing in common. They're creating something by themselves or with others that not only affects a large amount of people in a positive way, but is sustainable.Traditionally when many nonprofits start out, they do so thinking that they'll be funded by governmental grants or strictly through donations and fundraising. However, they tend to leave one concept on the table - partnering with companies who care about their cause.In this session, we find out about a company which not only offers a great service through their membership, but has a passion in feeding people around the world. Obviously, they can't do the work themselves, so that's where a nonprofit who is already doing that comes into play.It's a win-win for both organizations.So join me as I speak with one of the founders of LVRG, Cam Martinez, and learn more about his journey as a young entrepreneur and where this great idea came from.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:Has Cam always seen himself as running his own business? 10:43What was it about Tai Lopez that restarted his interest in developing his own business? 13:12What kind of barriers did he experience getting started in the business world? 16:06How did Cam start his relationship with his future partner Sylvania in making lvrg.it? 18:46What process did Cam and Sylvania utilize to find the right partner companies? 25:50When did Cam realize that leveraging his network was vital to having success? 29:46Why did Cam and Sylvania specifically partner with the nonprofit that they're working with? 33:49What's Cam looking forward to in the near future? 38:21If he could add a song, a book, and a film to the national curriculum, what would they be? 41:10What message is out there which a disservice to youth? 42:54What is something he believed when he was 18 but doesn't believe today? 44:41What tip does Cam have regarding traveling? 47:02How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 48:41ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Cam Online: LVRG, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTubeSession Sponsor: NameCheap - Need help installing Wordpress while keeping your hosting CHEAP?

As we learned in session 149 with the Shohawk Media founders, the film world can be amazing experience. But one thing is clear: it's vital that as a filmmaker you take advantage of the right opportunities to get ahead and get things done. This includes properly funding your production, going to film festivals, and knowing the inner workings of film distribution.For many new filmmakers, these things can seem overwhelming. Many questions come up. How will I fund this project? How will I find the right people to partner with to get it done? When it is done, how will I get it out to the masses?Today's guest is someone that has the chance to get to know the film industry inside and out. With 30+ years of experience, Ray Murphy has seen it all. From starting off in security to becoming a producer to now helping with distribution, he can help those projects that won't get the time of day from the big studios.In this conversation with Ray, we talk about that journey of his.Not only is he a great resource for young and veterened filmmakers alike, but he does a great job of shining the light on parts of the industry outsiders, like myself, might not understand.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, did Ray ever imagine seeing the level of success he's seen in his career? 6:27What was his first experience like in the film industry? 10:25What are the definitions of the various titles of producer? 14:24Has Ray ever considered being a director himself? 17:40How can young film producers take their career to the next level? 25:06Where does Murphy Media Distribution come in to help film producers? 27:40What types of individuals is Ray looking to work with? 37:42What's going on in 2019 for Murphy Media Distribution? 41:40Who are the three influencers who have helped Ray get to where he's at today? 49:28Is there anything Ray considers a waste of money that others buy regularly? 51:40What advice does he hear adults giving kids that he calls BS on? 52:44Is there anything he'd like to do that no one knows about? 54:29Three truths that he's learned over time that he'd want others to know? 55:30What's it mean to live a life of abundance? 57:49ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Ray Online: Website, LinkedIn, TwitterSession Sponsor: Uncover Your Personal MissionAoL Session 143 with Marc DavenportKarate KidBumblebeeGet OutUnplannedAoL Session 149 with Michael Hall and Chris SakrMovie SubredditRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:A Day in the Life of a Production AssistantWhat does a Producer Actually Do?How to Shoot a No-Budget FilmHow to Start and Grow Your Own Production CompanyThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

If you've been following the show for awhile, you're probably aware that I'm a big fan of Fizzle. Personally, I think they're one of the best resources I've seen out there for the lifestyle entrepreneur.Why?Well, there's a couple of reasons for that. For one, their library of courses available to their members are geared for those who need an Entrepreneurship 101 or 201 course. They cover all the fundamentals.But that's not all that's there.In fact, the creators joke with the idea that people come for the courses, but stay for the community.Which is so true. In fact, I'm still interacting with several people I met on there 4 years ago. Including Veronica.In today's interview with co-founder of Fizzle, Corbett Barr, Veronica and I talk to Corbett about the founding of Fizzle and what he thinks about the online entrepreneurial space 10 years after he started his first blog Think Traffic.It's my hope that you get a bit of an understanding of why Veronica and I both believe Fizzle is such a great resource.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How did Corbett originally get started in the tech startup world? 9:11What was his initial plan in starting Think Traffic? 17:29How have things changed online since the start of Fizzle? 22:24Where did the idea for Fizzle come from? 28:51What kind of advice does Corbett have for those who want to get off the fence and develop the business they truly want? 36:23What's the future for Fizzle and Palapa look like? 41:37Who are three influences that have helped him get to where he's at today? 47:20Is there something he's excited about that's going to affect entrepreneurship in the future? 49:06What topic should more people be talking about yet hardly anyone is? 50:54What is something Corbett believed as a 35 year old that he's changed his mind on? 52:41What does it mean to live a life of abundance? 54:53ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Corbett Online: Fizzle, Personal Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinPast interviews with Fizzle Alums - Barrett Brooks and Steph CrowderSan Miguel de AllendeBlog World ExpoWorld Domination SummitCaleb WojcikPalapaThe Lean Startup - Eric RiesRework, Getting Real - Jason Fried and David Heinemeier-Hansson (DHH)Evergoods Civic Transit Bag 40LRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:7 Big Lessons about EntrepreneurshipBest Places to Work and Live around the World, FB Productivity, and Managing a Remote Team4 Simple Productivity Practices and AppsChase Reviews the Evergoods CTB40Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

For many, internet business is something that is pretty simple to understand. Create a digital product or service, get a couple of clients, and then scale. If done right, you can build yourself a great lifestyle.The problem, however, is that the majority of the population doesn't know that this opportunity is available. In fact, your own family or friends might still wonder about "that thing that you're doing".Today's subject and interview might just help people you know get a grasp on that thing. In the documentary Generation Freedom, creators Michael Hall and Chris Sakr give us an overview of what it means to be an online entrepreneur.Does it look entirely the same for everyone? Of course not. But there are certain ideas and concepts that we all have to know to comprehend the true powers of internet business.In this chat, Harrison and I have the opportunity to chat with Michael and Chris and find out more about why they made the documentary, how they made it, and why they started filmmaking in the first place.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How did Michael and Chris get into filmmaking so young? 8:54What kept them from giving up on their aspirations? 12:35Is there anything they would say to their past filmmaking peers who have put their dreams on the backburner? 17:06What's their view on the current state of Hollywood? 19:38What do they think about leveraging Netflix and YouTube to get films out? 21:50How did Shohawk Media get started? What kind of work can we expect from them? 26:59How were Michael and Chris able to distribute the Generation Freedom documentary? 29:29What kind of advice would they offer someone who's struggling to make money from their art? 33:31What was the process like for putting together the documentary? 39:12Where does Michael and Chris see Shohawk in the future? 46:57What song, book, and film should be added to the national curriculum? 50:08Who's their favorite filmmaker? 54:45Is there an issue that more people should be talking about? 55:52Something that has cost under $100 which has changed their life? 57:36Are there any pieces of equipment that up and coming filmmakers should look into? 58:33What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 1:01:04ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Michael and Chris Online: Generation Freedom Website, Shohawk, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Harrison PainterSession Sponsor: Fizzle (Get 2 weeks free!)Ricky Gervais’ Interview on 60 Minutes4 Hour WorkweekCrush It!Will It Fly?AoL Session 66 with Jesse WintonSocial Media Marketing World ConferenceHappiness is a Warm GunRichest Man in BabylonRich Dad, Poor DadRaging BullThe Fog of WarPlastic Bag - A Short FilmRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Generation Freedom TrailerWho is Shohawk?WhiskeyFest Northwest Promotional VideoEpisode 1 of the Make This Movie PodcastThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Your body image can be a heck of a limiting belief. If you're a creative who wants to be on stage, you might believe if you're out of shape that you should be in shape before getting up there. Or, if you're slim, you might think you need to get some muscles and size to you so you appear more confident.When it comes to sports, there can be a bit of obsession about the athletic body too. Maybe even more so. A lot of athletes believe that if they're going to stay at peak performance, that they need to control not only practice what they're doing with their bodies, but what goes into them.That's fine. However, just like so many things, it can become a problem if taken too far.In this interview, Veronica and I talk with former All-American athlete turned author Rachael Steil about her journey.We find out what caused her to reach out for help and why she's taking what she's learned out to others.If you find yourself obsessing about food and nutrition to an unhealthy extent, then this talk is for you.SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:When it came to Rachael's eating disorder, when did she realize it was time to get help for herself? 9:16What initially made her start her blog about her athletic body image journey? 14:33What kind of writing process did Rachael have when writing her book? 18:08Does Rachael have any advice for people who want to become known for their art or writing? 23:00Are there any pointers she has in regards to someone finding their identity? 30:02Is she looking forward to in the not too distant future? 31:55What's one song, one book, and one film that she'd add to the national curriculum? 34:22What message out there is a disservice to our youth? 38:27Has there been a new habit or behavior that she's been practicing that has helped improve her life? 40:52If she woke up tomorrow as her 10 year old self and all her memories were still intact, what would she do? 42:40How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 44:02ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Rachael Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: FizzleGlenn Livingston on AoL Podcast Session 110Veronica’s TEDx TalkWomen’s Economic Forum in IndiaRunning In Silence (book)Cal Fussman interviews Simon SinekThe Entrepreneurial AuthorCam Adair AoL Interview(s)The Glass CastleWarriors - Imagine DragonsSecondhand LionsRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Rachael on Binge Eating and HungerEating a Diet of Only Fruits and VegetablesHandling a Eating Disorder When You Can’t ExerciseRachael presents her Athletic Body Image Journey at the Failure Lab Event in West MichiganThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

To be consistent. It's a phrase that's thrown around in all kinds of industries as a part of their success. But what does it mean? If you own an agency that relies on you to get the job done, then you have to show up everyday. If you own a website that sells certain products, then there's a good chance you'll need to go to various events to let potential customers that your site exists. Maybe you're trying to build a personal brand on social media - then you're going to have to commit to building that brand and showing up daily.So, that being the case, consistency can come in different forms. It's really dependent on what you want the end goal to be.However, if you really want to shoot for the stars in the online entrepreneurial space, then today's guest is some you'll appreciate.In this session, Tony Whatley speaks to Veronica and I about what it took for him to not only build a company outside of his day job, but to also sell that company for what it was worth. We also touch on the kind of work it's taking for him to build his own personal brand online.Join us as we pick the brain of the Side Hustle Millionaire!Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How did Tony get into mechanical engineering? 10:41What lead him to start side businesses outside of his day job as an engineer? 12:14How was Tony able to scale his business so he could have a "10 hour work week"? 17:38If he were to start over today, would Tony have used the same marketing and sales strategies he used to first grow his businesses? 22:24After selling his first big business, what was life like? 35:20What was the process of selling this business like? 40:32What's the future hold for Tony's brand? 46:40Who are three influencers who have helped him get to where he's at today? 51:21If he could ask anyone living or dead a question, who and what would Tony ask? 54:25What is something that most people don't realize is a huge waste of money? 55:56Something that cost less than $100 which changed his life? 59:07What does it mean to live a life of abundance? 1:00:17ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Tony Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Uncover Your Personal MissionBlinkist (Book Summaries)Mike Rowe Works FoundationRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Business Coach vs Business Mentor Fear!

Having success in work you love doing can take awhile to actually happen. There's certainly a Gap we all have to cross. In that Gap, we tend to ask ourselves different questions ranging from "Why am I still struggling?" to "Should I give up and do what I know I could get paid better for but not like to do as much?" to even "Why am I having so much trouble growing my audience?".I know I've had these questions myself.In this session, our guest, Sagi Shrieber, talks to Veronica and I about his career in design and how he was fairly successful right out of graduation. But after awhile, he found himself at a point in his life where he was $50k in debt and still having to support a family.In our conversation, we learn what he did to start climbing out of this funk as well as why he spent over $70k in improving himself in 2018.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:What led Sagi to school to be a designer? 9:40 How was he able to have as much success with his career after getting out college? 13:58 After having success early on in his career, how did things take a turn for the worse and how did he find himself getting out of his funk? 22:08 What did he learn from this experience that he's still using to this day? 31:50 When it comes to the way that Sagi uses it, what does it mean to be "full stack"? 38:17 What are some pointers he recommends when someone is building their first business website? 42:56 Where can we expect to see Sagi in 2019 conference wise? 55:55 What are his favorite top three books he tells others about? 58:12 Is there a gift he likes to give? 1:03:31 What message is out there that's a disservice to youth? 1:05:22 What one travel tip does Sagi have to share? 1:06:59 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 1:10:23ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Sagi Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeCohost: Veronica KirinSession Sponsor: Expert SecretsSagi being interviewed by Pat FlynnMeme - “Wish I had that talent!

Great things don't come from comfort zones. You've probably heard this so many times that it's cliche. But is it actually true? I think so.For me, the best things in my life have happened because I've stepped out of my comfort zone. Whether this was starting in band when I was in junior high, going to college, or stepping out to ask Maria on a date, good things happen when you take chances. Sure, sometimes things go south and don't work out the way you would have liked, but you never know until you get started.Case in point, today's guest, Jordan Harbinger, started his podcast way before they were considered "popular". Sure you could download them on iTunes, but when he heard that people were going to be able to listen to them easier with the release of the iPhone, he knew he had to jump on the wave.His first show, Art of Charm, was where I got to know him. And as his content matured, I felt myself maturing with it.Today he finds himself on his own platform where he and his team work (including his wife Jen and his producer Jason) to put out The Jordan Harbinger Show 3 times a week.

When starting a business, many people make building their business as complicated as improving themselves. The thing is that if you have a good business idea, it shouldn't be all that complicated to get results. In fact, there are still plenty of multimillionaires out there that haven't used social media to get their message out there.That said, you should always be improving yourself. If you're not, then you're automatically going backward.These concepts are examples which I learned from my Amway group, LTD, back in 2006. While I'm no longer active in the business, I can say that I learned a ton of great fundamentals there.Likewise, today's guests, Alex and Sarah Dumas, learned quite a bit from their days of being in the MLM (multi-level marketing)/direct sales as well. However, not all of it was awesome.In fact, in this conversation, you'll hear them talk about how much of what is taught today in MLM's is only part of the story. And more interestingly, much of what's taught to entrepreneurs as a whole - especially hustling 24/7 - might not be the best thing for YOUR business.Learn from the Dumas' experiences as they talk about these topics as well as what it takes to work and live abundantly.Enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:How were the Dumas' initially exposed to entrepreneurship? 9:46 What did they learn from their time in the financial service industry? 14:07 What was the one moment where they decided that there has to be a better way to building a business than what they already knew? 19:29 How has it been for Alex and Sarah to work together as a team? 29:03 What's NLP and how does Sarah use it in her coaching? 32:48 What is Reiki healing? 35:20 What would they recommend to others who are bringing in their significant other into their business? 38:16 What's the Abundant Life/Business Blueprint? 45:34 How can people connect with Alex and Sarah in 2019? 49:34 Who are three people who have help launch them to where they're at today? 51:02 What's one gift they like giving others? 51:18 In the last 5 years, what belief or habit has improved their life? 51:40 What issue should people be talking about yet anyone hardly is? 52:36 What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 57:07ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Alex and Sarah Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTubeCohost: Harrison PainterSession Sponsor: Fizzle - Get your first two weeks FREE!Milk frotherNLPReiki HealingRinna Mai AoL InterviewLaVar Ball - 'Stay in Your Lane'Abundant Business Blueprint (formerly Abundant Life Blueprint)Jim RohnLes BrownRight click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:It's OK to be Competitive, but not CombativeKeep Fighting For Your DreamsPower of AffirmationsPower of DisciplineThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.
