Ep 783: Cooking & Conversation with Calvin Wayman | Bacon, Eggs, and Hash Browns
Calvin Wayman joined me to prepare his all-time favorite meal on Cooking & Conversation: Breakfast! Calvin showed us how he has mastered making bacon, eggs, and hash browns and we also talk professional speaking, sales, and more! Watch the recorded live stream on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
Calvin is 1 of 45 kids in his immediate family. (Yes, you heard that right—he has 44 siblings!) He grew up on family farm in a religion that still celebrates the practice of polygamy.
In 2015 at 27 years old, he took the plunge to leave everything he ever knew to pursue the life he had always dreamed of. He started selling door-to-door, facing adversity and rejection that would help mold him.
As rocky as his story has been, he’s been documenting the entire journey on social media to help others on their own path.
Some of the things he’s done are incredible:
- He went from being an employee to building his own business
- He went from $53k in debt and documented his journey to becoming becoming debt free
- He went from never even running a marathon before to running a 50 mile ultra marathon
- He was overweight and lost over 50 pounds
- He had dreamed of one day speaking on stage with some of his mentors, and he’s since shared the stage with people like: Brendon Burchard, Lewis Howes, Mel Robbins, Jay Shetty, and Tom Bilyeu)
Today, he’s a proud papa and successful entrepreneur. He’s an international TEDx Speaker, and the best-selling author of Fish Out of Water. He’s the host of a podcast carrying his name, and he stars in the YouTube show Making The Millionaire: a vlog where he’s documenting his story from $53,000 in debt, to his first one million dollars. He’s been featured in 100s of magazine, television, radio, and podcast shows—including Entrepreneur Magazine, and the Dave Ramsey Show.
He’s involved in multiple ventures including acting as the founder of CobbesMedia--a social media agency designed to help purpose driven entrepreneurs impact on the world.
Simply put, this guy’s story shows that it doesn’t matter what everyone around you--including the negative voices in your head--tell you about what you can and cannot do. And despite the adversity you’ll face along the way, you have the power of creating the life of your dreams.
