living your dream

Jerome Myers – Discovering Your True Self: How To Allow Yourself to Start Living Your Dream (AoL 198)

One of the things I’ve learned in the last 10 years (and even more so since the start of the pandemic) is many of us, including myself at times, ask if we’re worthy enough to level up and start living our dream. Scratch that – OUR DREAMS.

See, here’s the thing. Society has told us what’s important and that’s the magic dollar bill. How you get it is secondary to actually getting it. Because so many people focus on the end destination (which, hint… there is no end destination), it really doesn’t matter how you get the result.

However, what I’ve learned along the way is that if you can tap into your true self and do work that has meaning to you and/or you finding fascinating, then the sky’s the limit.

That was true for this session’s guest, Jerome Myers.

As he tells it in this chat, while he was in college he realized that there are easier ways to earn income than trading time for money. In particular, he learned that multi-family housing can be particularly lucrative.

More so, he realized that when he “figured it out” that others need to know how to get free from the Matrix and live their dreams as well.

Listen in as he shares with us some of his thoughts on steps to finding our true selves and how we can make sure we don’t live a nightmare of constantly trying to do it with little luck.

Enjoy!

top stock picks

Sean Tepper – The Magic of Compound Interest in Trading: Using SaaS to find Top Stock Picks and Invest Confidently (AoL 197)

Often when we think about making millions of dollars, they think of three things. Primarily those things include building a business to a particular revenue level, creating a portfolio of real estate, or getting lucky in the stock market. That last one has always been something that I’ve struggled to believe – that you had to have luck to find the right top stock picks.

Back in session 182, we learned from Jason Brown that it’s possible to create a predictable revenue stream from stocks. So after hearing that, I did a bit of research. What I came up with was a subscription the Rich Dad Newsletter… but unfortunately, it was simply a way for his publishing company to make $250 off of me while upselling other solutions.

It was frustrating to the say the least.

However, it wasn’t much longer before I met today’s guest, Sean Tepper, and my paradigm started to shift.

In today’s chat, Sean shares with us how he created a platform called TYKR out of a need to develop his own passive income stream. In it we learn that being an angel investor isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. And we also hear how, with the use of the platform itself, how we can all build passive income through the magic of compound interest.

Enjoy!

SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:

  • When Sean was developing a means to create passive income, why did he go with the stock market vs going the real estate route? 13:46
  • How does playing the stock market actually yield passive income? 16:17
  • What’s some advice Sean has heard in the entrepreneurial space that he believes doesn’t work for everyone? 17:57
  • What are the key features of TYKR? 19:15
  • How did the journey go for Sean as he was creating the platform? 23:26
  • How does Sean find great guests for his show? 27:18
  • Sean has posts about certain stocks on his blog. How much are these posts Sean’s insights vs the data that comes from TYKR? 28:59
  • How much money is a good amount of money to use TYKR effectively at first? 33:01
  • Why does Sean feel TYKR is a wise move for the novice investor? 33:41
  • How can entrepreneurs keep themselves from getting hooked on the gambling aspect of playing the market as opposed to a tool for growing lasting wealth? 36:35
  • What are some of things that TYKR’s users can expect to hear from Sean when they first get started? 37:47
  • What is he looking forward to in his journey through 2021 and beyond? 42:20
  • What are Sean’s top three influential podcasts? 44:05
  • In the last five years, which behavior or habit has had the most impact on his life? 44:42
  • If Sean could put any ad out into the world, what would it be? 46:24
  • What is something most people don’t realize is a huge waste of money? 48:25
  • What’s the secret to achieving personal freedom? 49:18

online presentation

Rich Mulholland – Fulfilling Your Victory Condition: How to Get Real Results with Your Next Online Presentation (AoL 196)

For a good majority of the population, an online presentation can be a drag. Reason why is that most people are simply new to doing online business. They simply haven’t heard all the tips and tactics which have been discussed in the digital marketing space for the last 10+ years.

As of 2020, though, the game has changed. And just like how Facebook was once a place for college students to get together and discuss school and their favorite professors, things have changed for Zoom as well. What was once a platform utilized mainly by podcasters and tech savvy businesses, everyone and their brother is using the platform.

However, that doesn’t mean that they’re doing a great job doing so. In fact, poor presentation skills is nothing new. It’s just now being done in a widely used online setting.

So in this conversation with our guest, Rich Mulholland, we find out how he’s not only been able to help people get better at presentations themselves, but why so many business owners fail to take their business to the next level.

It was very interesting and unexpected to Andy and I how these very different topics actually are related.

Enjoy!

  • How did Rich realize the stage is a strong way to “activate the audience”? 11:58
  • How he realized he wanted to make the jump into the performance business? 15:00
  • What’s the difference between a regular job and a job you’ve started? 18:06
  • Why do entrepreneurs fail to take their business to the next level? 20:23
  • What advice does Rich have for the reluctant presenter who’s trying to captivate a zoom audience with an online presentation? 24:04
  • What kinds of things should presenters stay away from when presenting? 26:20
  • How does Rich feel digital platforms are changing the dynamic of being an actual speaker? 29:55
  • How do we find those moments to be attention grabbing and what ways can we win back the attention of the audience? 32:33
  • In what ways does Rich coach his clients to be in sync with the audience and anticipate what’s going to be important to them? 36:50
  • What are some of the steps presenters can take to make sure they’ve being proactive about staying relevant with today’s tech? 39:22
