=== SUMMARY ===

 

Whether we're conscious of it or not—we are all moving towards one an end, be it money, power, peace, enlightenment, or something else entirely.

Today's episode on Making Bank isn’t about determining which end goal is better or more noble, it's about learning how to engage in the process of discovery. How to practice mindfulness in order to better understand who we are, what we truly value, and what we want to strive for day in and day out:

What success means to US.

Our guest today knows all about this process. His name is JP Sears, a man whose greatest hope is that people find their true selves by confronting the beliefs that work for and against them.

JP started finding his true self when he was just a teenager. The journey would take him through the complicated world of physical fitness and dietary nutrition (including “the gluten-free breadcrumb trail”) before leading him to his true passion—helping others engage in emotional healing.

Today, JP makes his living as an emotional healing coach who employs comedy and lightheartedness to help his students ask hard questions of themselves.  He’s also an author (How to be Ultra Spiritual) speaker, and world traveler who describes himself as a “curious student of life”. 

Tune in to hear JP talk about his greatest hope, and share thoughts on…

  • How comedy is a vehicle for delivering hard-hitting truths
  • Finding purpose and passion by taking ACTION
  • How to measure TRUE success as an entrepreneur
  • Breaking through the “shadow” side — our egotistical drive and agenda
  • How human inconveniences work FOR us
  • Why you MUST have a self-growth process
  • The strength and courage of embracing vulnerability

And more...

=== SUMMARY ===

 

When it comes to encountering trials and tribulations—it’s not a matter of if, but a question of when. And when those crises come, many of us find ourselves reacting in destructive ways. Ways that are harmful to our business and the people we care about most.

Why does this happen?

It happens because adversity shatters our sense of control. 

A crash in the market? A sudden illness, or tragic accident? The reality is we usually have NO control over the events that cause the most disruption in our lives—the only thing we can control is how we respond. 

And no one knows that better than today’s guest on Making Bank, Hal Elrod.

Adversity first found Hal in the form of a life-changing accident, before finding him again during the global recession of 2008, and each had its own unique set of repercussions for both Hal and his family.

Rather than let these challenges bring him to his knees, Hal accepted his reality, controlled his response, and focused all his energy into staying positive and moving forward.

Since then, he’s authored two books—Taking Life Head On and The Miracle Morning—and become the co-host of the co-host of Best Year Ever Blueprint event. 

He has also become a keynote speaker, business coach, and father of two, with a passion for helping people overcome the adversity in their professional and personal lives.

Tune in as host Josh Felber highlights some of the factors that have contributed to Hal’s success, including...

•The power of enthusiasm and work ethic

•The 5-Minute Rule in responding to adversity

•Morning rituals for the world’s most successful

•Why experiential learning is the deepest level of learning

•How multiple streams of income will save you

And more…

Questions to Ask with Guest Dan Kuschell: MakingBank S2E1

=== SUMMARY ===

 

 

Entrepreneurs like to ask questions because questions (and the answers they lead to) drive destiny.

Where is the opportunity?

When can we get started?

What’s the run-rate?

How much is the overhead?

Why aren’t we effectively speaking to our audience?

Who should we hire next?

These are just a few of the many questions that successful entrepreneurs ask, and ask with regularity.

But there are three questions—ironically the three most-important questions of all—that entrepreneurs always fail to ask themselves.

And entrepreneur’s fail to ask them because they’re scary—they are big, philosophical questions whose answers can lead to rapid pivots and dramatic lifestyle changes:

•What do I WANT?

•What do I STAND FOR?

•Who AM I?

Obtaining the answers to these questions with complete clarity is vital.

Their answers do more than give us insight into our inner-selves, they ultimately determine our destiny.

Sometimes, overcoming the fear to ask the big questions takes an Earth-shattering wake-up call which, for today’s Making Bank guest, came in the form of life-threatening surgery.

With more than 11 successfully launched entrepreneurial ventures, starting with a direct mail campaign in 1992, Dan Kuschell channels an unshakably positive mindset to drive the engine of his professional success. 

Join host Josh Felber, as he asks Dan about the journey from food stamps to fortune, his rebellious personality, and much more, including…

•Why social proof is the world’s greatest sales mechanism

•The addiction of “workaholism”

•How destruction can be the best avenue to greatness

•The incorrectly assumed correlation between skill and success

•And why the NOT-to-do list is the most important list of all

A Human Project with Guest Wesley Chapman: MakingBank S1E61

=== SUMMARY ===

Imagine never having the opportunity to know your father—not because he died fighting in some awful, bloody struggle, or became afflicted with some horrific disease—but because he didn’t want to be there.

Now, travel back to your four-year-old self. What if—instead of enjoying trips to the park, or having playtime with your favorite toy—you found yourself changing diapers of and preparing food for your younger siblings?

How would your life be different if you spent earliest years going in and out of foster care?

Or being partially raised by an astoundingly abusive step-father?

Envision how challenging it would be to mentally and physically overcome even one of these barriers to success…

…Could you do it?

Even if you could do it, how would you do it?

Those are questions to keep in mind as you listen to today’s episode of Making Bank with guest Wesley Chapman—a man who overcame all of the aforementioned hurdles (and then some) on the way to becoming an uber-successful entrepreneur and self-described “Humanity Advocate.”

Wesley is a man who believes we all have a unique value proposition to offer the world, it’s just a question of sitting down and actually identifying it—something that (as Wesley freely admits) is easier said than done.

But if you can do it—if you can keep pushing and trying to focus on your unique strength—amazing things will happen.

Tune-in to hear Wesley and Josh cover a number of powerful talking points, including...

  • Wesley’s depression-clad, suicide-attempt-laden childhood
  • The process for identifying your unique gift
  • Modern, unseen threats to the modern family
  • Why proving yourself right is more powerful than proving others wrong
  • How developing a rudimentary understanding (and appreciation) of money at a young age leads to greatness
  • The relationship between success and honesty with oneself
  • Wesley’s involvement with A Human Project

…And much, much more!

Marketing Funnel Mastery with Guest Todd Brown: MakingBank S1E60

=== SUMMARY ===

How are you going to acquire new customers at a reasonable cost?

That—more than anything else—is the question you need to be able to answer as an entrepreneur looking to launch a business that will survive and thrive.

Customer acquisition is everything. It is the lifeblood of every business, be it nascent or fully-developed. Without consistent and reliable new customer acquisition, a business is living with one foot in the grave.  

Contrary to what most entrepreneurs think, customer acquisition doesn’t need to be a profitable enterprise right off the bat. In fact, the most successful customer acquisition campaigns are quite often breakeven, or even negative at the front-end.

Think of it like this—if it costs $1000 to acquire 100 potential customers (leads) for a company, and only 10 (10%) of those leads convert into customers (purchasing a $25 per month subscription-based product), the acquisition cost at the end of month one puts the business $750 in the red.

The customer acquisition cost is NEGATIVE at this stage.

But by the conclusion of month four, the company has reached the breakeven stage, and at the end of the month five the company has made a 25% profit on its initial $1000 investment. Plus, the company gets to hang on to (and continue to market to) the other 90 leads that haven’t become customers yet.

This idea that it’s OK to not run an immediately profitable customer acquisition campaign is just ONE of the many MASSIVE takeaways shared on this week’s episode of Making Bank, where host Josh Felber, sits down with marketing funnel master Todd Brown, of Marketing Funnel Automation.

Inspired by a single piece of direct-response copy he got in the mail, Todd catapulted himself into the world of marketing 15-years ago and never looked back. Today, he’s enamored with the idea of salesmanship multiplied through readily repeatable, automated means that any entrepreneur can use to grow a healthy business.

Listen as Todd and Josh talk at length about a number of incredibly valuable marketing concepts and strategies that every entrepreneur—be they a seasoned veteran or new arrival to the game—needs to know, including…

  • The danger of having ONE of ANYTHING
  • Reasonable customer (lead) acquisition
  • Mom N’ Pop lead acquisition versus savvy lead acquisition versus professional acquisition
  • Why elite marketers are more like prosecutors than salespeople
  • The under-appreciated value of numbers-knowledge
  • And the THREE indispensable keys to a successful front-end funnel build

Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur with Guest Mike Koenigs: MakingBank S1E59

=== SUMMARY ===

Avoiding failure isn’t the key to success—enduring it is.

For every entrepreneurial win captured in a best-selling book, or CNBC segment, there are a thousand unseen failures overcome, and ten-thousand unseen hurdles cleared.

Simply put, the price of success is high, and before the big breaks, most entrepreneurs are flat-broke.

Becoming a successful entrepreneur takes guts, resolve, and an insatiable appetite for improvement. The criticism, the cut-downs, and the doubts will greatly outweigh the complements, the accolades, and the money for a long time.

But, for those brave enough to stick their necks out and tough enough stay in the game, the success eventually comes.

Just ask today’s guest on Making Bank, Mike Koenigs, a man who went from meager means to making more than $1 million dollars in a single day.

After barely finishing high school, and electing to skip college, Mike launched headlong into an entrepreneurial career, only to find himself mired in a world of big-time hurt.

Setbacks and miscues left him with a floundering business, where he was forced to use credit cards to pay his employees and a gas-station rewards card to buy his groceries.

It was an unsustainable (and dangerous) way to live that brought him near the breaking point. 

Faced with mounting debt, surging self-doubt, and impending professional failure, Mike was left with two options:

Give-up or give it one last shot

He chose the latter and the rest is history.

Today, Mike is an accomplished entrepreneur, cancer-survivor, 11-time #1 bestselling author, cable TV producer, marketer, angel investor, filmmaker, speaker, inventor, and active philanthropist. He has sold multiple businesses to publicly-traded companies, including his most recent exits—Traffic Geyser and Instant Customer.

During today’s episode of Making Bank, he and host Josh Felber will go the distance in discussing what it takes to survive the long road to success, and what it means to live life healthily. They’ll also talk about…

  • Overcoming the obstacle of poverty in childhood
  • Why entrepreneurs make great innovators, but not managers or optimizers
  • Surviving the obstacle-laden road to success
  • Using a traumatic experience—like cancer—to become a better businessman
  • The importance of paying to play—why self-investment is an essential ingredient to success
  • Why being the dumbest person in the room is so advantageous
  • How a clear understanding of what you actually want can expedite it’s acquisition
  • The danger of carrying around old drama

…And much, much more!

Marketing and Life Purpose with Guest Gary Vaynerchuk: MakingBank S1E58

=== SUMMARY ===

 

Today’s guest who—despite not actually being born in America—knows just how lucky he is to be here.

His name?

Gary Vaynerchuk, and he’s a Making Bank veteran.

In case you’re unaware, Gary happens to be one of the most well-respected and highly sought-after marketers on the planet.

His gift isn’t funnel-building or an exceptionally high IQ, it’s knowing where consumer attention is going next (is it any wonder why he’s an investor in Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Uber and Venmo?), and he’s used that gift to build out a small media empire.

A self-described “day-trader” of consumer attention, Gary’s operating philosophy for business is “make money by doing what you love.” In his case, that love is marketing, but in your case, it could be anything—even working a regular nine-to-five earning $40,000 a year. As Gary sees it, if you can make a living by doing that which you love, you’ve won the game of life no matter how much you earn in a year.

Join Making Bank host Josh Felber, as he sits down with Gary to talk marketing, parenting, and Gary’s latest book #AskGaryVee. Listen as their conversation pivots back and forth on a number of interesting topics including…

  • The importance of taking care of yourself before anyone else
  • Building an empire on the back of good
  • The marketing medium that has a stranglehold on America
  • Life’s purpose
  • Determining where consumer attention is underpriced
  • The difficulty of balance

…And more!

=== SUMMARY ===

 

Go back to your teenage years.

You are a student in high school, working hard to get good grades, graduate, and still maintain some semblance of a social life.

Picture yourself sitting in class at the conclusion of a long, hot and humid spring day, getting ready for the brassy overture of the final bell knowing that with its ear-splitting ring your REAL day begins.

When all of your friends and classmates head home for the day, you’re going to head to a greasy, steamy restaurant to wait tables for seven or eight hours, working yourself to exhaustion.

How would you handle an utterly daunting workload like that? More importantly, what lesson would you extract from such a labor-intensive experience?

If you’re anything like today’s guest, you’d learn a lot.

Meet Mike Dillard, father, entrepreneur, investor, author, and self-described “freedom fighter” who approaches life with the belief that anyone can accomplish anything if they develop and apply the appropriate skills.

Using his time waiting tables at the original Romano’s Macaroni Grill as a sparkplug for entrepreneurial learning, Mike came to understand professional success isn’t rooted in hard-work, it’s rooted in smart-work—the kind that earns more money through means of continually-reduced effort.

Mike used this understanding to build a successful business teaching small business owners how to effectively market themselves online using “attraction-marketing”—a business that would be worth more than 7-figures by the time he turned 27. 

In 2010, he founded a financial education company in order to teach others how to achieve financial freedom through investment strategies commonly reserved for the wealthy.

Today, Mike’s businesses have produced more than $50 million dollars in revenue—all of it with $0 of outside funding—and his latest venture into aeroponics is positioned to be his most impactful and lucrative entrepreneurial effort yet.

Learn more about Mike during today’s episode of Making Bank, where he’ll discuss everything above, as well as…

  • How to become the hunted instead of the hunter
  • What to actually do when you achieve monetary success
  • Why the “opportunity” is NOT “the opportunity”
  • The critical importance of skill mastery and mentorship
  • How to properly apply the hours of the day
  • Why success isn’t derived from how hard you work, it’s derived from where you apply the work

…And much, much more, including the best advice he’s ever received.

A Life of Amplified Experience with Guest Keith Yackey: MakingBank S1E56

=== SUMMARY ===

Almost a year ago, real estate investor Keith Yackey, founder of Private Money Pro, joined host Josh Felber on Making Bank to talk about real estate—how to invest in it, how to generate additional revenue from it, and how to grow as an entrepreneur involved in it.

Today, Keith is back on Making Bank, but he’s not back to discuss real estate—he’s here to talk about living a life of no regrets.

What he calls, a life of Amplified Experience.

When Keith lost his mother, he used it as melancholic inspiration to stop living life constrained by fear, and within 15-months, he built an 8-figure real estate investment company.

Letting go of fear transformed Keith’s life. It led to fiscal freedom and wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But in spite of his rampant and rapid success, Keith found himself unfulfilled. He was successful, but he wasn’t happy, and success without joy—as Keith likes to say—is failure.

Realizing success had brought freedom but not purpose, he stepped back from his incredibly-lucrative real-estate investment business to focus on finding his passion, his mission, and his message.

Intense introspection led Keith to discover his true calling, a calling that could afford him with both freedom and purpose:

Helping people

Specifically, helping success-seeking individuals overcome their fear of chasing an idea and staring a business.

To that end, Keith started the Amplify Live Experience, a four-day annual event dedicated to helping people learn from AMAZING experts, engage with inspiring audiences, and learn how to act on dreams, passions, and aspirations. 

In this episode of Making Bank, Keith will walk the audience through his journey of self-discovery, and demonstrate his readily-adaptable framework for living a life of successful fulfillment.

Keith will also discuss…

  • The Amplify Live Experience
  • How anyone can make money online
  • The difference between asking “what’s my purpose” and living on-purpose
  • How to find, and then fine-tune, your message and meaning
  • Why authenticity—as opposed to polish—is the true key to making money
  • The FFAST Framework
  • Why joint-ventures, partners, and networks are the key growth

…And much, much more!

=== SUMMARY ===

 

The identity of America is changing, and changing rapidly. The country is becoming an increasingly beautiful mosaic of different cultures, ethnicities, languages, religions, and experiential backgrounds. And one of the most prominent and explosively-growing components of that mosaic is the Latino community—a community that is on-pace to make up more than 20% of the overall US population in the next couple of years.

Yet, the size, scope, and reach of this growing group has been largely ignored by one of America’s most prominent and profitable industries:

Entertainment

Right now, there is a Grand Canyon-sized gap between consumer demand for, and market supply of, Latino-centric entertainment.

Yes, there are few channels on TV like Univision and Telemundo, but they’re only taking a small sliver of the entertainment profit pie. Most of it continues to go uneaten.

Fortunately, that’s about to change thanks to the focused efforts of two successful entertainment entrepreneur-investors, Mr. Rich Hull and Mr. Jorge Granier. Their company PONGALO—a digital media company based in the US—owns one of the largest libraries of Spanish-language content in the world. And that library is slowly but surely being made available to Spanish-speaking Americans through PONGALO’s modestly-priced subscription based model.

Though it may not be entirely accurate to call PONGALO the “Spanish-speaker’s Netflix” right now, the reality is PONGALO could become a similar digital media juggernaut over the coming decade, particularly as the US-based Spanish-speaking audience continues to grow.

Remember—mobile device ownership and mobile media consumption is MASSIVE in the Latino community (in fact, no other cultural demographic owns as many mobile devices). Coupled with mobile media consumption’s unwavering rise in the general US population, and it’s reasonable to assume PONGALO’s industry footprint will become increasingly massive.

So, with all of that said, join host Josh Felber on today’s episode of Making Bank, as he sits down with both Rich and Jorge to discuss their respective media backgrounds, their interest in catering digital media to the Spanish-speaking community, their vision for future development of PONGALO, and much, MUCH more, including…

•Why TV—like radio—will never die

•How, when, and where Millenials like to consume media

•The defining characteristic of new-age media

•Why pigeon-holing (left unchecked) can destroy your potential

•The fragility of free-speech
