George Campbell & Jim Packard – Eliminating Self Sabotaging Behavior: How the Power of Habit Is Essential to Goal Achievement (AoL 193)

Self sabotaging behavior is a common theme when it comes to personal and business development (or the lack thereof). Whether it’s the lack of willpower to get healthier, the determination it takes to go through college, or the focus it takes to build one’s business, there’s one thing that is certain when it comes to accomplishment: setting a goal is one thing – but actually achieving that goal is something completely different.

In this session of the show, Ya’el Johnson and I get to talk to two completely different kinds of individuals who have made it their passion to help others figure out how to achieve goals like this.

Through their app called the Consistency Chain, they’re helping tons of people build good habits in place of the ones that have lead them to where they are now.

In their recent book built on the same premise, The Consistency Chain for Network Marketing, authors George Campbell & Jim Packard suggest that the main reason that people don’t do well with network marketing is that they simply haven’t built the right habits to actually grow their business. Interestingly, George goes on to say that he was only successful when he realized he was the common denominator between all these opportunities.

In this conversion, we explore how they came to that conclusion and some of the concepts one should consider when trying to achieve anything in this world – let alone building a network marketing business!

Enjoy!

SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:

  • As enthusiasts of the industry, how did George and Jim get into Network Marketing initially? 12:55
  • How do you know when you’re working with the right business when it comes to network marketing? 21:18
  • How did Jim & George realize they were on to something when they felt the 80/20 rule applies to those who are successful in network marketing? 26:24
  • How do they give themselves milestones on a regular basis to keep them going in their journey? 30:17
  • What are some of the ways that people are using the Consistency Chain app in their daily lives? 37:17
  • What are some of the things George and Jim are looking forward to moving forward in 2021? 42:10
  • Who are Jim and George’s personal influencers and teachers? 45:23
  • What’s the biggest plot twist they’ve seen in their day to day life? 48:43
  • Is there a particular gift they like giving others? 50:31
  • What is something they’ve become good at saying no to? 52:33
  • How does someone realize they’re living their own personal mission? 53:59

building companies

Marek Zmyslowski – Building Companies Abroad: Key Do’s and Don’ts when Investing In Businesses Outside the First World (AoL 191)

Welcome to 2021, everyone. What an interesting ride it’s been… and we’re not out of woods yet. However, if you’re interested in building companies (and who isn’t these days?), I’m really feeling hope in the air. Hope of a fresh start.

If anyone knows about fresh starts, it’s this session’s guest Marek Zmyslowski. He’s had a couple in his career – but one he’s most notable for is the one he had to go through as he was writing his book Chasing Black Unicorns.

In his book, Marek shares with us the story of why and how he built the Amazon of Africa… but then how selecting a bad business partner eventually got him in hot water with Interpol… and what he learned from the whole ordeal.

In our conversation with Marek, new co-host Ya’el and I explore some of the items Marek has learned you want to do or don’t do when you’re building companies in up and coming countries.

Enjoy!

SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:

  • What was Marek’s first business? 10:08
  • What were some of the key steps he took to get some of his first ventures started? 14:23
  • How did Marek come to the decision to buy out his business partner when things started going south? 17:54
  • How was Marek able to move past the drama with Interpol and his business partner? 23:19
  • In which ways has Marek been able to leverage his experience into positives today? 29:12
  • What has Marek done for his own pandemic pivot? 32:04
  • Who are three influencers or teachers which have helped him get to where he’s at today? 35:47
  • What’s been the biggest plot twist he’s seen in his day to day life? 37:56
  • What’s something he feels is going to change entrepreneurship in the future, and what specifically is he excited about? 39:15
  • Which message in the world is a disservice to youth? 43:49
  • How can someone be a difference maker in their community? 47:13

build confidence

Casey Sharperson – Believe in Your Better Tomorrow – How to Build Confidence and Achieve Your Dreams (AoL 189)

As 2020 is coming quickly to an end, we’re moving closer to favorable conditions to be creatively self employed. However, that might be easier said than done. For many, the pandemic has set people back in more ways than one. If we want to build confidence going into the new year and to be a player in the Pandemic Adjusted Economy (PAE), we’ll likely need to rebuild and equip ourselves with new expectations of what’s possible.

Personally, I feel that 2020 has helped me reflect and improve my vision of what my businesses can be. In fact, we’re improving the model of everything I’m involved with. I’ve certainly learned a few lessons from this past year. More so how to build businesses that are pandemic proof!

However, I understand that not everyone has been able to gain that clarity. In fact, I think a lot of people who’ve lost their business aren’t quite sure how to pick things up to rebuild. Or, even if they’d want to. Or maybe, someone’s been waiting for the best time to start out on their own – but they’re especially not sure if NOW is the best time to get started.

Here’s the thing: everyone who was affected by COVID-19 will still have to start from a level playing ground when we’re given the greenlight to begin again.

So don’t let your fears hold you back. Reach out and find those who can be a catalyst for what you’re trying to achieve.

One such person I’d recommend reaching out to is this session’s guest, Casey Sharperson. In this conversation, she shares with us how she made the jump BEFORE the pandemic hit and how she’s already helping others do the same.

Listen in as Veronica and I find out what it means to take charge of your story and use it to your advantage to move forward.

Enjoy!

SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:

  • Who was Casey growing up and how would her own Disney movie begin? 9:44
  • How did her mentor, Alice Carson Tisdale, affect her and where she saw her life going? 12:17
  • Was there a “catalyst moment” during her corporate career which made Casey start on her own path? 18:41
  • When it comes to working with Millennials, where does she start in the process of helping a client? 23:54
  • How can someone use rejection as a catalyst for change and growth themselves? 28:05
  • How has Casey pursued her vision as opposed to simply dreaming and hoping things will come true? 32:45
  • What’s it take to leverage one’s own story to build a brand and fans who love them? 37:06
  • If someone hasn’t found their “story” yet, is it possible for them to build a brand? 40:30
  • Has any of her clients realized their own personal story under her watch, and if so, what was the transformation like? 43:31
  • What would the world look like if everyone had their own personal transformation experience where they actually step into who they are? 47:17
  • What in particular is Casey focused on for the near future? 48:43
  • Who are three influencers/teachers who have helped her become who she is today? 50:28
  • What gift does she like giving others? 52:50
  • Which issue does she believe more people should be discussing yet hardly anyone is? 53:48

take care of yourself

Sameera Khan – Healthy Living for the Creative: Secrets from a Health Nutritionist to Take Care of Yourself (AoL 188)

In 2020, it’s been relatively easy to put on a few pounds since we’re all more prone to living a sedentary lifestyle. That’s why the Quarantine 15 has become a thing. However, that’s really a bad excuse to not take care of yourself.

So, for the holidays, I wanted to make sure we released a conversation with someone who can help us work-o-holic creatives be a bit more mindful of how we’re treating ourselves during the last stretch of the year.

While our guest Sameera Khan typically works with bariatric surgery candidates, she has some great tips for the rest of us.

Listen in as Veronica and I explore a handful of tips we should keep in mind to keep ourselves from binging and/or staying on track for our holiday meal planning.

Enjoy!

  • What was the spark that drew Sameera towards a career in the health field? 11:03
  • How can someone become more aware of where they’re at in their own personal care? 15:52
  • How would the work-a-holic use this knowledge in their day to day? 18:31
  • What is someone facing when they’re looking at bariatric surgery? 21:40
  • What kind of actions does someone need to take after bariatric surgery to stay healthy? 26:00
  • Why would someone want to shift their carb intake and what are some tips someone can do that? 28:03
  • What is Sameera focused on for the rest of this year and going forward? 33:24
  • Which 3 books does Sameera find herself giving or telling others about the most? 35:30
  • Is there a documentary she recommends people check out? 36:17
  • What is something she believed as an 18 year but has realized is completely inaccurate and why? 37:17

live the life

Justin Breen – Live the Life You Want – How to Build Your Own Epic Business (AoL 187)

In the last five years, I’ve learned a lot of things from doing this show. If someone is looking, I really think it can help someone live the life they want. However, while I might have learned plenty since starting the show, I’d say a big part of that knowledge is simply developing new perspectives on what I already thought I knew.

While I’ve had several changes of perspective, three have stood out the most this year.

The first big perspective change I had was that it really does take awhile to master a craft. For example, while I feel I know a lot about producing a great sounding show, there’s always tweaks I can be making to improve the show as a whole. But it’s only from that experience that I know to make those changes. You’re not going to learn meaningful knowledge overnight.

The second perspective shift I’ve received from the show was actually a big game changer. I realized the more people are doing work aligned with what’s important to them in life and how others see them, the closer they are to doing work that isn’t really… work.

And the third realization came from understanding this past year one thing: The more people you meet and let into your life, the more opportunity you have to grow.

I share those three perspectives with today’s guest, Justin Breen.

In fact, when I realized he was building his business on these three core beliefs, it occured to me that I should probably embrace them more myself.

Listen in as he shares with Veronica and I why these beliefs are important to him and how they’ve empowered him to live the life he’s proud of.

Enjoy!

SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:

  • What initially drew Justin to a career in journalism? 9:13
  • In 2017 Justin realized there was a shift in journalism. What happened that made him realize it was time to start to live the life he desired? 11:43
  • What inspired Justin to write his book Epic Business the way he did? 18:04
  • What are some of the things someone should expect to learn about in his book? 19:53
  • How can someone put their family needs first when they believe the work that they’re doing is supporting their family long term? 24:01
  • How important is a knowledge of PR and media connections in business success? 31:09
  • For someone who’s just starting out in their business, what should they know about being more respectful of journalists and building relationships with them? 34:26
  • How did Justin learn the skill of leading with relationships in building his business as opposed to being highly transactional? 37:58
  • What does the future of BREpic look like and what is he looking forward to? 43:25
  • Who are Justin’s favorite teachers who have helped him get to where he’s at today? 45:21
  • Which documentary would he recommend people check out? 45:37

identity shift

Rob Scott – Tackling Humanity’s Core Problem – How an Identify Shift Can Lead To Your Personal Breakthrough (AoL 184)

There’s a lot to be said when it comes to having a personal breakthrough. In fact, having one might just change the rest of your life. However, when it comes to having a breakthrough through an identity shift, what does that actually mean? Shouldn’t a breakthrough come before having a change of identity?

Interestingly, according to today’s guest, Rob Scott, you can find a way to change your perspective on who you are and how the world influences you. Not only that, but when you do, the world can become a much more friendly and/or productive place.

business team

Dirk van Reenen – A Great Challenge Means Great Opportunity – How to Build a Pivot Ready Business Team from Day 1 (AoL 180)

For a lot of business owners, the pandemic has cost them their livelihood. For example, Yelp! recently shared that 55% of the businesses using their platform which closed down due to the pandemic aren’t coming back. What’s a business team to do when you’re looking at those kinds of numbers? How can you avoid having to close down?

The answer, I believe, is all about being able to make a pivot. And this is something we’ve been discussing in great detail on the show.

Unfortunately, for some business teams, pivoting might not be too obvious. Sure, curb service and delivery for some restaurants makes sense, but what if your restaurant wasn’t so much a restaurant, but a bar? What if you’re reliant on a market that’s not doing so great right now such as realty?

Today’s guest, Dirk van Reenen, excels at helping teams focus on the foundations of business and how they scale their businesses in ways that they might not have noticed before. In fact, with the future looking like things will be changing faster and faster, it’s important that all businesses know how to quickly pivot.

So what does that look like? Well, the first thing is all about building the right team – and that’s where today’s conversation takes us.

Listen in as Andy and I learn more about Dirk’s business BERGflow and how it might benefit those of us going through or preparing to go through a hard time.

Enjoy!

SPECIFICALLY, YOU’LL FIND OUT MORE ABOUT:

  • What’s the path that Dirk followed to eventually starting BERGFlow? 9:45
  • Where did the name BERGFlow come from? 15:20
  • What are some things people need to consider when building a team as a solopreneur? 20:24
  • What challenges does remote work give to a group who’s forming into an effective team? 26:50
  • If a leader finds themselves in a situation where there’s trust issue in the team, how can they get back some of the control in their group? 32:02
  • According to Dirk, what’s the importance of a business team building something worthwhile? 38:54
  • What kind of things is Dirk looking forward to as we move into a different world post-pandemic? 45:40
  • What’s the best advice he’s ever received? 51:40
  • Which three books does he gift or tell others about? 52:11
  • What’s the smallest decision he’s made that has had the largest impact in his life? 54:22
  • What’s one thing all high school students must know? 59:01
