Description

The Hard Thing podcast is focused on helping people improve their lives by learning how to do hard things.

It's more than just another personal development podcast or self-help podcast. This podcast is really about helping you overcome your challenges and adversities and accomplish the achievements that, deep down, you know you want to do, but maybe you don't believe in yourself enough, or you're just scared.

Listen as I interview guests who have overcome average by doing hard things. Each of us has to go up against difficult challenges, but it's not the challenge that defines you. It's your overcoming of the challenge. I'll extract the methods used to do hard things so that average people like you and me can replicate their success.

I have episodes released every Monday and Thursday talking about how to lose weight, how to get out of debt, how to find a better career, how to get stronger, how to develop better relationships, how to find fulfillment and so many more questions. We want to give you actionable insights into improving your life.

Join us on the journey to become the person that you know you should be. Join us doing hard things and overcoming average.

Today we discuss profit, debt, and being sure about your business. Welcome back to the 88th episode of the Hard Thing Podcast. Today I share my conversation with Amanda Neely. Amanda hosts the https://grandmaswealthwisdom.com/ (Grandma's Wealth Wisdom Podcast) which also has a https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDhyT09v_5xD1qyvLuhSfDA (great Youtube channel). We start the show by asking about Amanda's hardest thing. For her, it was starting a business. She and her husband had this idea to start a business and so they decided to see if they should by fasting. Eventually, they decided they should and that's where the fun began. Throughout the conversation, we talk a lot about hurdles they had in starting their business and how they overcame them in very creative ways. Amanda shared how by restructuring their life a little bit, they were able to save their business and their marriage. It all started with them changing their focus to be on profit rather than undercutting themselves. We talked about how everyone should build themselves a good financial foundation, and as always Amanda gave us some good action items: Get to the sense of surety about your business (by asking questions) Involve people creatively Build an emergency fund Profit first Thanks for listening to the show.

We start talking about the challenge I had to do 10 Crossfit workouts in 14 days. I failed in doing the full 10 but did 9 of the 10. I learned that the day that you think you can't but you do is when you feel the best. The opposite is true as well. We then talk about the action items from this last week's podcast guest: Weed the Garden Lastly, we talk about the new challenge Ty gave me, namely, to do a mental focus exercise every day and chronicle my experiences.

Today we discuss weeding your garden, outrunning avalanches, and finding more meaning in your life, oh and did I mention outrunning avalanches? Welcome back to the 87th episode of the Hard Thing Podcast. Today I share my conversation with author, lawyer, & trekker Jeff Rasley. You can reach out to Jeff at http://www.jeffreyrasley.com/ (jeffreyrasley.com) where you can find his books and other articles. One thing I liked about today's conversation with Jeff is how he mentioned the three hardest things of his life instead of 1. He said Actualizing himself as a human being Revitalizing his life Outrunning an avalanche. As part of our conversation, we talked about how Jeff had a seemingly perfect life with a successful career, a happy family, tennis pursuits, and even many activities with his children. Yet he felt unfulfilled. It took his wife handing him a pamphlet of an expedition to the Himalayas and traveling across the world in order for Jeff to realize that he needed to scale back parts of his life and only focus on what's most important. He realized that he needed to make his life a masterpiece and doing very specific things intentionally. Because of this, he started reinterpreting his life. Overall, it was a great conversation filled with insight. Jeff also gave us some action items to make sure we take the insights of today's show and put them into practice: Weed the garden. Find what doesn't fit in your life and weed it out. Thanks for listening to the show. Make sure you subscribe so you never miss an episode.

Welcome to the 13th episode of The Forge The goal of the Thursday show is to show you our journey to hopefully help inspire you and hopefully help you relate more.

Today we discuss business debt, keeping your mental state during times of great difficulty, and choosing relationships that you don't drop the ball on. Welcome back to the 86th episode of the Hard Thing Podcast. Today I share my conversation with https://www.tabpierce.com/ (Tab Pierce), business owner, and author. Feel free and sign up for his https://www.refinersconference.com/refiners-conference-2021 (Refiners Conference). You can email him for a 50% discount and make sure to mention you came from the hard thing podcast. His email is tabpierce@gmail.com. Don't forget to ask him about his opportunity pipeline. Tab starts off the show by describing being in $750,000 in debt to people like the IRS, Loan Sharks, and more. Today's a full episode of great business insights. Some of the highlights of today's episode are: Adjust your expectations. If you are starting a business assume it will take 3x as long or as much money to do what you want to do. Avoid the control of emotions. While business is very emotional, you need to avoid making emotional decisions. Make value over and beyond your paycheck. Be willing to make humble sacrifices that actually produce results (i.e. driving for Uber while managing a million-dollar company) Keep your mind straight. You are your greatest asset and you go, everything else crumbles down too. Avoid time thieves and do deep planning to do what's most important. Identify relationships in which you can't drop the ball. As I said, it was an amazing episode full of insights and Tab left us some action items to make sure we put into practice what we learn: Adjust your focus to the long game Adjust your expectations Do deep planning Give yourself some credit.

Today we discuss proper business principles, poop, uncovering fraud, and did I say poop? Welcome back to the 85th episode of the Hard Thing Podcast. Today I share my conversation with Terry Rich. Terry had a rich career in cable TV, turned things around for his state's zoo, and helped resolve the biggest lottery fraud in the nation.

We spend time talking about various things business today. Terry explains that one of the hardest things for him was cracking the biggest lottery fraud case in the history of the nation. But before that, Terry had to escape the simpler lifestyle of his hometown farm. He ended up moving out by working a low-paying job for a local cable TV company that eventually led to his being on the Carson show. We then move onto the topic of Terry running his state's zoo. During this portion, Terry shares various ideas on how to brainstorm and create ideas that can work and not risk everything. Terry even shares that he helped the zoo to start to sell poop. Terry also shares his experience of running his state's lottery and also navigating the complex waters of a national investigation surrounding the biggest lottery fraud in US history. During this portion, Terry shares certain business ideas on how to run a business during a large scandal or emergency.

Welcome to the 10th episode of The Forge The goal of the Thursday show is to show you our journey to hopefully help inspire you and hopefully help you relate more. Today I'm flying solo without my co-host Ty Crockett. We start off the showing talking about complaining specifically because I was challenged to go 2 weeks without complaining. I failed, however, I was humbled as I realized how much I complained. I realized that there is a difference between a complaint and a grievance in a relationship because sometimes you do need to bring things up otherwise they won't get fixed. I talk about the importance of realizing your weaknesses and understanding that sometimes you even complain in your mind. I then talk about the action items given to us from this last monday's podcast guest, Dan Cumberland, (https://thehardthingpodcast.com/captivate-podcast/ep-83-dan-cumberland/ (Ep. 83)) Do the Test and Try Exercise Do Self Reflective Writing Write Your Goals Daily After that, I mention some things I'm working on including a big announcement of new resources I'm offering soon and the challenge I took was to complete those resources and get them up on the website.

What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done? I ask that question every Monday to people who’ve done amazing things in their lives in an attempt to figure out how to do the same thing. This is Justin Lewis and I’m the host of The Hard Thing Podcast. This is the podcast that helps you overcome average and step up above mediocrity all by doing hard things in your life.  We’re going to give you the tips, tricks, tools, and tactics on episodes every Monday and Thursday to achieve and reach your goals, and create a more fulfilling life. On Monday, as I said, you’ll hear me have conversations with suicide survivors, business owners, former NFL football players, civil rights activists, and more all to get you the strategies to overcome the challenges in your life. On Thursdays, you’ll hear me and my co-host, Ty Crockett, as we try to put into practice all the things we’ve learned from our Monday show, as well as giving each other some very difficult challenges. If you want a great episode to get started with I’d recommend starting with Ep. 33 with Jon Bennion to hear us talk about drug addiction. Make sure to subscribe and we’ll see you in the next episode.

Welcome to the 8th episode of The Forge The goal of the Thursday show is to show you our journey to hopefully help inspire you and hopefully help you relate more. Unfortunately, I am going solo again today, but we should have Ty back with us next week. I start off by talking about the challenges I got two weeks ago from my wife. She challenged me to not play any games on my phone for 2 weeks and to spend more time on her and less on other things. I explain some of the things I learned from these challenges. I then talk about the action item given to us from this last week's guest, Nelson Tressler ( https://thehardthingpodcast.com/show/e-81-nelson-tressler/ (Ep. 81)). Then I give myself the challenge of not complaining for 2 weeks. Thanks for listening to today's show. We really appreciate the support.

Today we discuss overcoming difficult birth circumstances & doing things no one in your family has, as well as setting big goals and reaching them. Welcome back to the 81st episode of the Hard Thing Podcast. Today I share my conversation with entrepreneur, author, and investor, https://nelsontressler.com/ (Nelson Tressler). You can reach out to him on https://www.facebook.com/IGOTSMARTER (Facebook), https://twitter.com/IGOTSMARTER_APP (Twitter), and https://www.instagram.com/igotsmarter_app/ (Instagram). We start off the conversation by talking about how graduating college was the hardest thing Nelson's ever done. It was that way primarily because of how Nelson's life began, namely as a result of rape and in spite of murder. With all of that craziness, Nelson was able to get through college with a great degree. We then talk about the importance of family and having great examples in your life. We then move on to talking about business and the importance of investing. Most of all during this episode we talk about goals and the importance of fixing a huge and massive goal, as well as the importance of reaching that goal. It was a great conversation full of insight. Nelson, of course, left us an action item: Think of what you know you need to do. Now go do it! Thanks for listening to the show. Make sure you subscribe so you never miss an episode.
