Description





Lots of people would say that blogging as we know it is dead. There's little ROI on it because you have to compete with all the other blogs that are out there.



That's why a lot of people use Medium as their blogging platform. They then link those posts on social media hoping that the eyeballs see it.



However, today's guest, Tori Reid, suggests otherwise.

Chris Jordan – Find Your Voice! How Faith Can Help You Become an Effective Leader (AoL 141)
How do you find your voice? Not your singing voice, but instead your message or work, that is unmistakably you?There are many reasons why people become a reanimated creator. Sometimes, they simply see a void in an industry that they're already in and think they can do a better job than the company they're at. 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. After a life altering experience, Chris Jordan realized that God had given him a new personal mission.

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.

Kevin Bupp – Investing in Mobile Home Parks: Are They the Best Places to Invest in Real Estate? (AoL 124)
In this session, we're continuing on with our education about the real estate investing (REI) world. Again, REI is something that a lot of us online folks are familiar with. Mainly because one of the most recommended books about passive income was written by Robert Kiyosaki. It's no mystery that he made most of his income through REI.As we'll be reminded in today's conversation, you can get started at any level. Ideally, you'd be able to put your own money to work for you just like Robert suggests. However, if you don't have the resources, you can find opportunities for people who do.These are a couple of the ideas that today's guest, Kevin Bupp talks about.Kevin has seen it all. Starting nearly 20 years ago, he went from single family homes to owning all kinds of property.Today he focuses on one type in particular - mobile home parks (Or better yet, manufactured housing communities).Why? Listen in to find out!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How'd Kevin first get into real estate investing? 10:03 How did he get started with his first property? 13:39 Should people new to real estate investing focus on wholesaling or buying to produce recurring revenue from the property? 14:44 Why did Kevin start investing in mobile home parks? 17:23 Where can someone do research to learn more about doing REI with mobile home parks? 20:53 How does Kevin alleviate the problem of tenants not paying on time in his parks? 27:48 What would Kevin of today tell himself back in 2000 to invest in if he only had $5000 to $10000 initially? 33:14 If someone wants to bring opportunity to someone like Kevin, what kind of property should they be on the look out for? 35:16 How can someone find those opportunities for established real estate investors? 36:51 Could someone develop their own mobile home park? Why might it be a good or bad idea? 38:42 Is there any trend in tiny home parks starting up? 41:15 How important is it for Kevin to give back to his community? 42:34 What's Kevin looking forward to in the future? 44:53 Who are the 3 most influential people in his life? 46:06 One gift he likes giving others? 46:56 What's Kevin looking forward to in the future? 47:15 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 48:24Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Kevin Online: Sunrise Capital Investors, Personal Website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn This session's cohost: Harrison Painter Millennial Skills: Get Educated on Chatbots here!  MyINREIA LoopNet CoStar Mobile Home Park StoreSHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Kevin on BiggerPocketsInterview on the REI Foundation PodcastKevin on Rod Khleif’s ShowA Taste of 72 Hours to Key WestThanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

If you're an entrepreneur who's making money passively or you're simply interested to do so, there's a good chance you've read a book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.I remember when I read that book back in 2002 - it was an eye opener. I couldn't put the book down. Since then, it's one of the books I've bought whenever I see on sale so that I can give it to other people when I see them struggling to get ahead.What's cool is that this particular book isn't the only one that Robert has written. And if you spend any time reading those other books, you realize that he made a big part of his fortune early on in Real Estate.Today's guest is on the same path. After starting in 2013 being paid $24k a year, she now does that in a month.

When it comes to podcasting, you can get geek out about equipment and marketing tactics all day long.

Tim Paige – There’s Money Where Your Mouth Is: Discovering How to Get Into Voice Acting (AoL 116)
Voice acting is something that a lot of people don't think about, yet we probably hear it everyday.

Tori Reid – Become a Master Content Creator! Why Blogging Should Still be a Part of Your Content Strategy (AoL 115)
Lots of people would say that blogging as we know it is dead. There's little ROI on it because you have to compete with all the other blogs that are out there.That's why a lot of people use Medium as their blogging platform.

Mike Thorp – Less Talk and More Creation! – How Saying No to Gary Vaynerchuk Helped Launch a Hospitality Consulting Business  (AoL 114)
There's a reason that many businesses fail in the first several years of business.Of course, finances might play a part in that. But I think that even having a revenue problem is the sign of a deeper issue.The issue is simply that business ownership doesn't necessarily make one a great leader.And without the ability to paint a vision and help employees see what's going on, of course a company is going to fold.Today's guest, Mike Thorp, helps restaurants with this problem. He says that what he does for his clients is a combination of Hell's Kitchen and The Profit. He loves what he's doing, as you'll find out.But doing his own thing - it came at a cost. As creatives, we find out that to create our consumption must go down. And sometimes, we have to cut it out completely.That's exactly what Mike had to do with Gary V.So in today's chat, we'll hear all about what Mike brings to the table with his business, but we'll also learn what motivated Mike to pull the plug on Gary.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How'd Mike get started in the restaurant industry? 9:43 How does Mike view leadership and culture in the restaurant industry? 15:16 What's an important role he sees his company doing for local students? 22:02 Does he only work with local businesses around Grand Rapids? 26:53 What was his transition like going from corporate work to consulting? 30:43 What does Mike wake up for in the morning? 34:18 What lead Mike to write his viral post on Medium? 42:28 Why do so many people have trouble leaving the consumer mindset to becoming a creative? 50:37 What are some of the things Mike's looking forward to? 52:39 What are his three top favorite books? 54:50 What's a fact from today that would blow the mind from someone ten years ago.? 56:41 Smallest decision he's made that's made the largest impact? 57:08 What's a life skill that he's amazed people lack? 58:44 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 1:01:44Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Mike Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope Co-Host: Veronica Kirin Looking for a great community to start your Indie Business?

Andrew O’Brien – Forging the Vetrepreneur Tribe: Helping Veterans become Successful Entrepreneurs (AoL 113)
Let's face it. The world can eat you up and spit you out if you let it. And the number one way that this happens is by not having a personal mission.Or simply not having something to fight for.Like anyone else, military veterans are susceptible to having a numb life after they retire from the armed forces. However, because they have had something to fight for they know what it means to have a mission - even though it didn't begin in their own head.This mission gives veterans a unique sense of comradeship.And when they retire - they lose all of the support they've become accustomed to.As we've been learning, entrepreneurship can be a way to not only develop a personal mission, but embrace it as well.And that being the case, veterans can make great entrepreneurs who support each other.In today's chat with Vetrepreneur Tribe founder, Andrew O'Brien, we learn how his life struggles have lead him to realize this and why he felt it was necessary to start the Tribe even though he had been having pretty good success with his PR company.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What's the short version of Andrew's story of how he ended up in the Army? 8:04 How did he come to the realization that he wanted to be public speaker? 14:38 What was Andrew's early days of speaking like? 16:22 How did things start picking up for him where it eventually lead him to becoming the Publicity Guy? 17:33 How did Andrew realize there was a gap that he could fill as an entrepreneur? 21:21 What was the transition like from being the Publicity Guy to being the Vetrepreneur Tribe leader? 23:42 What does he contribute most of the success with the group to? 25:52 How can people build up their own resiliency? 31:26 How does one determine when it is actually time to pivot what someone's doing in their business? 34:52 What's Andrew looking forward to doing with Vetrepreneur Tribe? 39:07 What are his top books? 40:49 What's a gift that Andrew likes giving others? 42:32 One thing that costs under $100 that has changed his life? 43:59 What's something all high school students must know? 45:29 What's Andrew's secret to achieving personal freedom? 47:00Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Andrew Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter Co-Host: Albert Winks Start building your Facebook Group today the right way!

Rachel Pedersen – From College Dropout to International Influencer: How a Former Hairdresser made her Side Business a 6 Figure Recurring Revenue Machine (AoL 112)
It's easy to get the mindset that because we have some sort of disadvantage compared to someone else that we won't be able to do what they've done.Truth is, though, that's usually an excuse more than anything else. It's a victim mentality.If you truly want to do something with your life and your work, then having that mentality isn't going to get you anywhere.For me, when I was growing up in my hometown, I knew I was going to go to grad school. Both of my parents had their master's degrees, so it was an automatic that I would at least have that. It didn't matter how long it took or what I had to do to achieve that goal. It was going to happen.However, a lot of my peers didn't have that perspective and/or support that I did. So their goals weren't as "big". While they might have dreamed about leaving our hometown and doing great things, many fell short. They just didn't have the missing ingredient to get to that point.I'd argue that this particular missing ingredient, for most, is unfortunately hitting rock bottom. Where things are so unbearable that we are forced to dream of a better life.For this session's guest, this was definitely the case.Rachel Pedersen has lead a life peppered with all kinds of ups and downs. Growing up in Minnesota as a pastor's daughter, she had great expectations. But somewhere along the line, life took a turn and she found herself a college dropout with kids AND on welfare.But her story doesn't stop there. It got much better.In fact, today she finds herself working on her own 7 figure marketing business.What happened in the middle there? That's what we're going to be finding out in today's session.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Did she ever see herself being as successful as she's become? 7:50 While growing up, did she live her life based on what other's expected of her or did she do her own thing from get go? 9:49 What was the first mental click she had that started her on her current path? 12:38 Did she start working with her clients for free like Russell Brunson suggests in his book or did she charge right away? 19:03 What are some tips for someone to become as successful as Rachel even if they live in a "small town" or don't have the best support in getting there? 23:34 What are 5 steps that someone should take if they want to start their own work? 29:44 How does Rachel build a real human connection with people through social media? 39:14 Who does she pay attention to when it comes to watching FB Live videos? 42:42 How do you build a following and how does one define that? 44:52 What's Rachel looking forward to in 2018? 46:57 One gift she likes giving others? 53:11 What's something that's going to affect entrepreneurship in the future she's excited about? 53:37 What's an issue that's not being talked about enough? 54:42 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 55:04Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Rachel Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram Co-Host: Veronica Kirin Start learning about sales funnels with this FREE book (Just pay S&H)!

Dr. Robert Garcia – The Warrior Strategist – Making Your Veteran Owned Business Your Next Battlefield (AoL 111)
In the military, people are groomed to be able to take a given situation (many times dangerous) and take charge of it. Often an objective will change at a moment's notice, but the end goal remains the same. Because of this, they learn to be flexible and resourceful.When they get out of the military, many veterans find it hard to get back into civilian life primarily because the world they're used to is so different than what they're now having to adjust in. A lot of times, the work their working life doesn't make as much impact as the work they're used to. And, further more, the mindset of your typical civilian worker is completely different.Many veterans who start their own business do so because they feel that calling to do something more than the typical 9 to 5. In fact, they don't just feel it - they know that they can build something meaningful because of their experiences.However, just like any entrepreneur's journey, the path to do that isn't super straight forward. So that's why folks like today's guest, Dr. Robert Garcia are needed. They can relate to the veteran because they've been there - but they also know what it takes to be successful in business.Today we find out why he's referred to as the Warrior Strategist. SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was life like growing up for Robert? 7:58 How does Robert focus on getting so much creative work done? 11:28 Why did Robert start his digital magazine? 14:48 How does someone who wants to interview or talk to a influencers get access to them in the first place? 16:19 What made Robert decide to go after his PhD? 20:17 What inspired him to create his Warrior Path program for entrepreneurs? 21:32 What are 3 steps that someone can take to get better at anything? 30:34 What's coming up for Rob in the near future? 34:59 How can a veteran who's used to being told what to do become a well known entrepreneur? 36:02 What are Rob's top 3 favorite books? 41:40 What's something under $100 that has changed Rob's life? 42:33 What's an issue more people should be talking about yet hardly anyone is? 43:39 What's something all high school students must know? 45:26 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 47:25Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Robert Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter Cohost of this session: Albert Winks Shift Magazine Lulu Self Publishing Nathan Chan Dr. Howard Wasdin - Black Hawk Down - Seal Team 6 Dave Daley - Monster Motivator Hope Center Indy Vetrepreneur Tribe Law of Success by Napolean Hill Breaking BUD/S by D.H.

Glenn Livingston – Never Binge Again: How to Stop Binge Eating, Stress Eating, and Overeating (AoL 110)
It wasn't too long ago that residents of the US grew their own food. Instead of letting the big food companies and government tell us what to eat, we grew most of our food on our local farms.Ever since we've let big agriculture take over, however, obesity has been on the incline. Sweet foods that we like to eat have become more abundant throughout the year and more readily available.Because of this, phrases like binge eating, stress eating, and overeating have become the norm.But because it's normal, doesn't mean it's right.In this conversation, I talk with Dr. Glenn Livingston about how to induce a mental anchor that will help us get out of destructive bad habits when it comes to food.Having worked with the food industry as well as researching the topics through his own practice, he has found a great way to associate these bad habits with actions that don't identify us.In this session, find out more about that method and how you can apply it your own bad eating behaviors.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Glenn get into the marketing world after being formally trained as a psychologist? 9:59 What was the point in his career that he felt was a major breakthrough to where he is today? 15:52 How did he decide what his next steps in life were when he was in the midst of his break down? 23:32 Why is it that food that's affordable is typically made from bad stuff? 30:46 How did he learn to keep himself from engaging in unhealthy behavior? 34:31 Should one address overeating and binge eating the same way they address stress eating? 39:08 Why does portion control work and planning out meals for the week work as well as it does? 45:04 3 top books he recommends or gives to others? 49:03 Fact from today that would blow the mind of someone from 10 years ago? 49:29 One thing under $100 that has changed his life? 50:07 Something that isn't as bad as he thought it would be? 50:39 What's one thing all high school students must know? 51:05 What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 51:34 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Glenn Online: Website, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram Sugar: The Bitter Truth - Full Length (Condensed) Jack Trinky at Rational Recovery  Walter Reed Veteran Hospital How to Lead an Inspired Life by Jim Rohn (review by Brian Johnson) Breakthrough Advertising - Eugene Swartz Getting Things Done - David Allen The Plant Paradox - Steven GundrySHOW NOTE EXTRAS:When Sugar is Poison, Let It Go!Best Advice for Someone who Alternates Between Binging and Starving All about Sneak Eating:What if We Are Meant to Live to 150?BONUS - Dr. Gundry on How Plants are Poisoning Us with Lewis Howes (Preview) Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Helping people in a way that is uniquely you.Today's guest is a great example of that.Having been trained as a classical musician, Edwin Culver first started his career as a teacher. However, he soon realized that this wasn't his calling. His students were not nearly as fascinated about the arts as much as he first hoped they'd be.He wanted to change this - but he wasn't going to do so from the inside.Today, he has transitioned to performing more regularly and training those that want to actually learn. But, like any good educator knows, it's important to know the background of what you're teaching so that you can give your students can understand the full context of what they're learning.In today's chat, you'll find out how he ended up with this perspective and also what he's done to further his own education. We also discuss how someone can become a musician like him AND how he applies some of the things that he learned during a short internship with Wallbuilders and Mercury One.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Edwin go from being a music teacher to becoming an actual performing musician? 14:16 Is playing other people's music as fulfilling as playing his own? 29:15 Why did Edwin apply for the Wallbuilders' leadership internship this past summer at TheBlaze studios? 42:05 What kind of specific experiences did he have during his internship that were memorable? 51:59 Were there any lessons he had that he now applies directly to his work as a musician? 58:14 How can someone pursue a career in music? 1:07:37 What is he currently working on that he's excited about? 1:11:30 3 Influencers or teachers which helped him to where he's at today? 1:14:57 What's a gift Edwin likes giving others? 1:18:39 What was the smallest decision he's made that had the largest impact on his life? 1:20:18 What's a skill that he's often surprised people lack today? 1:22:06 What is the secret to achieving personal freedom? 1:25:33 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Edwin Online: Website, Facebook, Twitter Wallbuilders Leadership Training Program Dane Maxwell AoL Interview Lewis Howes Interviews Magician Julius Dein Johann Sebastian Bach Ira Glass - The Gap SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Choros No. 1 by Heitor Villa-Lobosh:Beginning of Edwin Culver’s performance (8/2/17):Edwin Discussing Dissonance (pt1):Edwin Discussing Dissonance (pt2):Edwin's intern group at the Leadership Training Program:Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Mark Boersma – Developing your Sales Skills: Why Business Systems are Huge in Making Predictable Revenue (AoL 106)
You always hear about people "systematizing" their work. However, so many of us, especially us solopreneurs, don't take the time to do that. Sure, we might write an SOP if we hire a virtual assistant (if we're smart), but when it comes down to our creative work we never take the time to think about what might be easier if we actually detail out what gets results.As you'll find out in the interview of Mark Boersma, he started systemizing early on. Having an analytical mind, he out thought his problem and now teaches others how to turn sales, which can seem like an intangible skill, into something that's very step by step.In today's chat, Mark discusses with me why he had to figure this system out, what the results of it gave him, and how knowing personalities plays into the success of this system.Enjoy! SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Why did Mark get three bachelor degrees? 10:41 Did he feel that going to college was a detour of what he should be doing in his career? 13:22 When he got out of school, why did he immediately go for a 100% commission paid position? 15:02 What was the first tool that he made which systematized his sales? 20:35 How does knowing about personalities useful in making sales? 23:44 What's the accuracy percentage of the personality assessment he uses with people? 30:54 What are some of the things Mark is looking forward to in the future with Synergy Solutions? 35:51 Who are 3 influencers who have helped him get to where he is today? 41:38 What is a scientific fact that he knows his true but still blows him away? 42:49 What's an unwritten rule that should actually be written today? 43:55 What's something that he belives all high school students must know? 45:18 What does it mean to live a life of abundance? 46:39 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Mark Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn The Junto Facebook Group Tom Kunz Jonathan Boerma’s Interview Life Masteries Institute Alan Stein - Tanglewood Conservatories Malcolm Gladwell DNA for Life DNA for Success Get your 14 Day Clickfunnel Trial here! SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Mark and Tom interviewed by the Milwaukee's Morning Blend: Introduction to Personality Masteries:Mark on Thinkers vs Doers:ClickFunnels Viral Ad 2017:Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Lisa Mitchell – Becoming Aware of Your Body Posture: Why Reading Body Language and Giving the Right First Impression are Vital to Success (AoL 105)
Whether you're on a phone, in person, or standing on stage - communication is king. In general, when you think about the word communication, your first thought probably is a vision of someone talking.I know that's the case for me.However, during the time when we're talking or simply standing still, our body is actually speaking for us as well. In fact, non-verbal communication is often what truly conveys our message more so than our actual words!In today's chat with Lisa Mitchell, we find out more about non-verbal communication and how it affects our daily lives as well as our businesses. We also get into why authenticity is so important in today's world, and we even get into why body language needs to be part of the next generation of online dating. SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: Why did Lisa leave behind a career as a coffee house owner to pursue her current career? 10:03 Why was the underlying reason she struggled with her first business? 14:47 What was her "aha moment" when she realized that she wanted to help people communicate better? 18:56 What are some ways that a person can manage their first impression a bit more? 26:41 What are the three parts of nonverbal communication? 31:31 Why does Lisa believe that the market demands authenticity from their experts? 36:32 When it comes to body language, how does being aware of your decoding process help? 39:36 What are some of the common conflicts and trends Lisa has seen between Millennials and Corporate? 46:41 What got her started helping people in romantic relationships as well? 51:17 How are some common problems that young professionals have when it comes to dating? 57:08 What does Lisa think the next big thing in online dating is? 1:01:13 How can someone plan for a good first impression? 1:04:06 What does Lisa have coming up to look forward to? 1:06:07 Who are three influencers that has helped her get to where she is today? 1:07:53 What's here least favorite social custom? 1:12:12 What kind of advice does she hear parents giving kids that she'd call BS on? 1:14:25 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 1:18:01 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Lisa Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter Wilmer Valderrama on Lewis Howes Science of People - Vanessa Van Edwards Dallara - Indy Car Factory The Brendon Show Lindsay Boccardo - Millennial Whisperer Chalene Johnson Cohost: Albert Winks Get on board with Fizzle! 5 weeks FREE through this link.SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Be a human lie detector:Own the Room (pt1):Own the Room (pt2):Avoid the Question Inflection (Don’t be a valley girl!):What does LeBron’s post-shot behavior mean?:Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

JR Rivas – Leveraging Creative Marketing in Local Advertising: What a 23 year Old Did to Create a 6 Figure Digital Marketing Agency (AoL 104)
Most entrepreneurs think, at some point, about the ability to strike it rich one day doing whatever is that they're doing.In my Amway days, a good question I remember being asked was "Doing the job that you're doing, could the income they're making ever be obtainable?"Most of the time the question was answered "No.". And I believe that kept many people believing that Amway was the one ticket to the life they dreamed about.Today's guest, had a similar wake up call. He realized that to get to where he wanted to be in life, he had to learn how to sell things.That lead him through a journey of all kinds of jobs, businesses, and online opportunities.This past year, he found something he could help people with - creating sales funnels.In this chat, we discuss how he came to that realization. We also discuss why he believes that building sales funnels is one of the most lucrative out-of-the-gate businesses a new entrepreneur can start today.SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was the Digital Nomad Excelerator? 10:48 What was it like growing up for JR?

Isaac Lidsky – Seeing Shouldn’t Always Mean Believing: How to Make Better Life Choices by Changing Your Perspective (AoL 102)
In the last session with Jeremy Miller, something stuck with me. In fact, it stuck so well that I used it as the trailer for the chat. He talked about the fact that if you go through life thinking a certain way, particularly that everyone is out to get you, then you're going to lose out on opportunity.He's totally right. But I think it goes further than that. I think it goes as far as ANY limiting beliefs will prohibit you from having amazing opportunity. Especially after having the chat with today's guest.At the ripe age of 13, he was told the news that he was going to eventually lose his site. At the time, he had recently landed a part on a popular kids' sitcom: Saved by the Bell: The New Class.It was soon after this, however, that he would soon change things up dramatically. He would trade in his acting career to go to Harvard and major in Mathematics.He would then go on to help start a successful business, become the law clerk for 2 supreme court justices, and take a struggling construction and make it worth 10x as much. Then he would go on to write a book that has become a New York Times Best Seller and speak at TED.In this session, Albert Winks and I go "behind the scenes" with Isaac Lidsky.This session isn't our normal format. In fact, you can think of it as a continuation of other interviews that Isaac has given. In it, we find out the answers to more "meta" questions.Was it easy to jump from one career to the next? How did resurface in the public eye as a TED speaker and make a very successful first book? How he believes he was able to grow his construction business to the size it is today? Is it important to have people in your life that have "been there before"?Thanks for spending some time with us and enjoy!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How'd Isaac get started in acting? 9:27 Why did Isaac leave Saved by the Bell? 10:59 Why did he start studying mathematics at Harvard and did that degree lead into his first company? 12:31 How was going blind at an early age so beneficial to who Isaac is today? 19:53 Does he believe that it takes a severe hardship for someone to take inventory of their lives? 24:42 How did Isaac realize that fear distorts reality? 26:51 When did he determine that he wanted to inject what he had learned about how he saw the world into other people's lives? 31:12 What are somethings that Isaac thinks about as his kids get closer to school age? 34:38 How was he able to grow the construction company by 10 fold? 39:22 How can someone help foster culture in a company they're in? 42:39 Did he get to pay his mom back for the loan she made for him to rebuild the company? 45:12 How did Isaac become a TED speaker and appear on the different platforms he's appeared on after being pretty much out of the limelight for a number of years? 46:22 Does he have any tips in choosing a publisher? 49:46 What are some influencers that have helped Isaac to where he's at? 51:45 Is there anything he wishes was still a thing from the 90's? 52:47 What's a basic life skill he's shocked people don't have these days? 53:25 What's something he believed as a 20 year old that he believes is completely inaccurate now? 53:42 What's it mean to Isaac to live a life of abundance? 54:12 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Isaac Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter Places to hear Isaac’s story of creating his book: Art of Charm, Glenn Beck Program (Part 1) (Part 2), Art of Manliness Saved by the Bell: The New Class MediaMath CEO Joe Zawadski JC on Uncomfortable Conversations with Gregory YPO - Young Presidents Organization Sandra Day O’Conner Jack Daly Gregory Diehl’s interview of Isaac Cohost: Albert Winks Read It For Me:  Get Summaries of Books Daily (Try it free for a month here!)SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Isaac on The Doctors:

Escaping the 9 to 5 Through Online and Retail Arbitrage: How Selling on Amazon Can Buy Your Freedom with Tyler Philbrook (AoL 099)
In this session, I wanted to take it back to where my idea of starting a podcast originated from. I've been a big fan of the SPI podcast ever since Pat Flynn started it. From that show, I've been turned onto several of other business and lifestyle podcasts and influencers.Pat motivated and inspired me to do more and he continues to do so.Today's guest was also motivated by Pat but at a much deeper level.Unlike me, Tyler Philbrook has experimented with multiple ways of making passive income that Pat has talked about on his show. If Pat is the crash dummy of online business, then Tyler is kinda like the dummy that didn't turn out so hot after the wreck.Nothing seemed to work for him.

Finding Purpose through Podcasting: How New Meaning was Revealed through a Sportz show with Cole Johnson (AoL 098)
People find their purpose, or as I like to call it - mission, through various ways.As we've heard, some people find that purpose early on in life. Many of those have the help of mentors to find that.For others, life becomes the mentor and eventually you realize that there has got to be something else.For Cole Johnson, today's guest, he realized that he wanted to be a creative later in life. In fact, it wasn't until his wife started bringing out the creative in him that he decided he needed to have a way to get his voice out there.And talk about a voice! He knew he could sing - but have a voice for the radio? He didn't think it was possible.Today, Cole finds himself at the helm of two podcasts. His original Cole Sportz and his soon to be released Revelations.In our chat today, we learn how he got here, how Cole Sportz got started, and some tips for beginner podcasters.Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was Cole's time in the military like? 11:39 How did he get into media? 15:08 When did Cole know it was time to do his own thing? 21:50 How does it work when you have two creatives married to each other? 25:44 What are some of the struggles that Cole has gone through getting his show off the ground? 28:54 What's Cole Sportz experience like and has he been able to leverage living in Nashville? 33:20 What are some of things that really grinds Cole's gears with new podcasters? 45:38 What's he looking forward to working on in the not-to distant future? 1:00:47 What are three influencers that have launched him to where he's at today? 1:06:56 What's an issue that people aren't talking about enough today? 1:09:38 What is something he believed as a 30 year old and now doesn't? 1:16:17 What's it mean to lhave a life of abundance? 1:19:34 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Cole Online: Cole Sportz Show, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter Chris Ripka AoL Interview Anthony Hayes AoL Interview Scott Doucett AoL Interview Cody David Boyce Tim Wohlberg JC on Cole Sportz Playing with Science with Chuck Nice featuring Pete Bommarito Revelations - Cole’s New Podcast Fizzle.co - Get Help for Your Podcast for 5 weeks FREE!SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:THE GAP by Ira Glass (from Daniel Sax):Drew, Cole, and CJ on The HaverCole Johnson on Kwame’s Show:Check Your Ego at the Door with Scott and Cole: Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

Finding REAL Relationships in a Digital Age: How to Make Friends Online with Felicia Slattery (AoL 096)
Relationships today are so much different than they used to be.I can't exactly put my finger on why, but it seems that so many people rely on social media to interact with other people. Personally, I'd rather have a good conversation with someone - I think these podcasts show proof of that!The problem is with relying on social media, texting, and whatever else you want to put in the blank... these communications are usually fairly short and from what I can tell, surface level communication.Meaning, they're not very deep.Growing up, I remember that everyone knew everyone in their neighborhood. This was common all over the place.That said, I'm glad that people like today's guest exist in helping people create better relationships in their lives.Felicia Slattery is on a mission to bring people closer together. In her upcoming book, she tackles how people can create REAL relationships in their everyday life.In today's conversation, Veronica and I find out from her what REAL relationships are, the dos and don'ts of social media, and what are some ways that creatives can be more engaging with their followers.Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What was it like growing up around Chicago? 12:02 How did Felicia get started in speaking? 13:45 When did Felecia realize that she wanted to help people build better relationships? 17:02 How can people stop talking at each other and build better relationships? 21:12 What are REAL relationships? 26:16 How can we be more mindful in our lives to get more REAL relationships? 33:47 How can someone get more comfortable with doing LIVE videos? 38:06 What are things not to do on social media so you're not being irritating? 44:14 What are some of the ways to get more engagement out of different social media platforms? 1:01:07 What's the future hold for Felicia? 1:03:52 What are Felicia's favorite 3 books? 1:06:31 Something under $100 that has changed her life? 1:08:32 What advice do you hear parents giving advice to children that she says is bs? 1:09:18 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 1:14:15 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Felicia Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram Bradley Speech Team Cam Adair’s AoL Interviews: Session 8 and Session 62 The Go Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann (Amazon Link) The Tap by Frank McKinney (Amazon Link) Trust Funnel by Brian G.

Transformational Learning through Travel: Why Your Next Trip Might Change Your Life and Business for the Better with Gregory V. Diehl (AoL 095)
Let's face it, we grow comfortable with who we are, or at least, who we're perceived to be. Whether or not our self image is one we're proud of, we get used to how we're perceived in the world.Many times that perception can hold us back on what we could be or should be doing with ourselves.For me, growing up in a small town, I have a lot of small town perceptions. I know they're completely different than my wife's who has a much different view of the world because she grew up in cities.For example, as an only child in a small town, I got used to being bored fairly regularly. The nearest mall or movie theater was 25 miles away. So, I had a lot of time growing up to think about how the world worked based on what I saw on TV, heard on the radio, read in books and magazines, and later read on the web. My natural state has always been to learn and explore.In Maria's case, she's always had family around. People who needed her for one thing or another. So she's always been focused on what needed to be done next. Didn't have nearly as much time to be bored as I was because she was always doing something with someone - somewhere. She frankly didn't have much time for herself.It wasn't until her tour in Iraq that she had time to think about what she wanted in life. For her, while she was in a combat zone, it gave her time to think.That time to think - to be away from everything you know - is exactly what today's guest is all about. He wanted something different from what he was getting in life as a teenager.So he set out to explore.Today, Gregory V. Diehl has explored 50 countries in 10 years.In today's conversation, Veronica and I discuss transformative traveling with him as well as how your story is essential to your brand. Both of which he's written books about. We also discuss how someone can create pain in their life to give themselves a way to discover who they really are.Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What were Gregory's formative years like? 6:50 Where did the inspiration for traveling come from? 8:38 What gave him the courage to get started in traveling? 12:47 How does being a traveler help Gregory with his business? 17:14 Where are some of the places that he has citizenship? 20:31 Did he have any early entrepreneurial escapades as he was growing up? 23:18 Is there any advice that he'd want to tell young entrepreneurs as they're first getting started? 26:25 Where did the idea for his book, Brand Identity Breakthrough, come from? 28:21 Where did the idea for his podcast come from? 29:45 What are some of the things that Gregory likes diving into on the show? 32:15 How can someone get confident in discussing their new identity with the world around them when they've recently found it? 33:39 How can someone manufacture pain in their life so they can rise to another level? 37:03 What's the next book that Gregory is working on about? 42:13 Are there other methods, besides entrepreneurship, that kids can allow them to explore their identity? 43:33 Who are Gregory's top 3 favorite influencers? 48:10 A gift he likes giving others? 50:47 Something he wishes was still a thing? 51:03 Place any ad in the world, cost free, what it would say? 54:27 What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 56:59 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Gregory Online: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram Ginger Kern’s AoL Interview Brand Identity Breakthrough Travel as Transformation Uncomfortable Conversations with Gregory (JC's Interview) (Veronica's Interview) Marti MacEwan’s AoL Interview Easton Allred’s AoL Interview Common Sense Economics by John Pugsley (Amazon Link) People Try Durian Fine Brothers on YouTube This session's cohost: Veronica Kirin Traveler's Mindset Travel Savvy eCourse - Get Out and Exploring th...
Soft Skills for your Growing Indie Business – Why Millennial Entrepreneurs Need a Personal Development Plan with Hector Santiesteban (AoL 094)
Do you know people who are doing exceptionally well with their indie business? Do they just seem like natural solopreneurs? How'd they get to be so polished?I can tell you. Through a lot of personal development work.That's one of the biggest take aways I got out of my time in the MLM / direct sales world. How important personal development is.I feel I can safely say that today's guest believes the same thing - personal development goes hand in hand with building a business.Hector Santiesteban is the founder of Millennial Skills. Like us here at New Inceptions, he feels that there is a major lack in the desires of many folks out there and the actions they're taking to get what they want.Like me, he probably asked himself at one point "why should the MLM groups get to only share this with all their members. Why shouldn't the masses know?"That's one of the things that we find out today. We also learn why he feels it's necessary to niche down in your new business and some of the struggles he's had in moving to an entirely new type of business.If you want to start thinking like truly successful people, then you'll need to know Hector.Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: How did Hector end up in Southern California? 12:56 How did he become a National Champion Sales Manager? 15:59 Why did he start working with Millennials and start Millennial Skills? 22:32 Is having one thing all in one spot not a big a deal as it used to be? 31:58 What are some of the biggest struggles in starting his online business? 35:20 What does he think about the advice of niching down? 42:45 How do you find clarity in your purpose and business? 49:39 What's some of the things he's looking forward to in 2017? 52:39 Who are his 3 biggest teachers and influencers? 56:31 What is a social norm that tends to irritate Hector a bit? 1:04:43 What is an issue that people aren't talking about, but they should be? 1:06:30 If he woke up as his 10 year old self tomorrow with all his memories, what would he do? 1:11:32 What's the secret to achieving personal freedom? 1:15:08 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Hector Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram Brian Drury’s AoL interview Russell Brunson Art of Charm Hal Elrod Kamal Ravikant Interview with Glenn Beck (Full Show - Audio Only) Read It For Me - Save Time, Space, and Money Getting to Know What You Need to From Bestselling Books!SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Reasons You’re Still Broke:How Do I Master Myself?29 Steps to Starting Your Business:Amanda Rivera interviews Hector: Thanks for Listening!Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

There’s Something Brewing Here! – What Strong Working Relationships Can Do For Your Brand with Sean Webster (AoL 093)
Relationships are made and broken on the values of the people in those relationships.For some, a simple misunderstanding can break a weak bond. Whereas if you know people at a deeper level, then you know who they really are and what they're about. That kind of relationship can pay dividends in the long run.I know for me, I've always had a close group of friends - and then there was everyone else. It wasn't just "treat everyone the same". No, I've always had my inner group because those were the folks that would understand me the most at that point and if I ever needed help, it'd be available - and visa versa.If you don't have that inner group when it comes to business, then you're essentially working for yourself by yourself.But it doesn't have to be that way.Today's guest, Sean Webster, is what I would call a catalyst for craft brewers in Indiana.Having started his business in 2016, he's been making a pretty big strides in his business simply because he understands where his clients are coming from. He understands their stories and why they make the product they do.While Sean applies his skillset to the brewing industry, I think it's important to realize it should be applied anywhere.In this session, Albert and I ask Sean about this skillset of his and how he's been able to build his business around it. How he identifies as someone that really knows the art of creating good brews, how his business actually functions, and how his core values fit into his daily routine.Success looks different to different people. You might not know that if your career only involved formal education and getting a job upon graduation. In fact, if you've gone that traditional route, you might believe that those who have the most money or the most fame might be considered the most successful.I believe that this model simply doesn't fit in today's new world. Sure, I might say that a majority of people still believe that to be considered successful, it just happens to you - but I and many other creators would say that success comes with achieving what you set out to do - whatever that might look like.If you like craft brews, good ideas, and collaboration, then you'll like hearing from Sean!Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT: What's Sean been up to since session 4? 10:32 What's Sean's take on the podcasting world now that he's been on a few? 15:58 As someone who's been a bartender in the past, how does he identify as a mixologist? 22:14 Why's it important to have distinguishable beers. 28:29 Is there any places making mead in Indiana? 32:34 What's the working process of Monon Beverage? 34:28 How does having core values fit into a his business' daily routine? 44:44 What's the future for Monon Beverage Brokers look like? 51:45 What are 3 movies he recommends to other creatives? 56:24 Hardest thing he's had to say no to? 57:49 Something Sean wishes was still a thing? 59:39 What's something that all high school students must know? 1:02:01 How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 1:04:02 ... and MUCH more!Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer.ITEMS and PEOPLE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Sean Online: Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram Evil Czech Brewery Midwest Bartenders School Acetaldehyd as an Off Flavor Rooster’s Kitchen (Place to find Kopi Loewak in Indy) Kopi Loewak (Weasel Butt Beer) Broken Beaker Distillery (this place is a really unique - especially if you're into Science) New Day Craft (Mead location) Scarlet Lane Brewing Company Cool Creative Movies: Looper, Split, The Lobster Co-Host for this Show: Albert Winks ClickFunnels: Make Making Sales Funnels Easy - Start Today with a 14 Day Free Trial!SHOW NOTE EXTRAS:Moonlight Meadery “Fling”, “Smoulder”, and “Kurt’s Apple Pie” Review: Sean at A Better You Wellness:
