=== SUMMARY ===

What would you do if you woke up one day and realized you were on the wrong path? 

Would you keep walking that road, or would you commit to making a change? 

How would two years of time and six-figures of debt influence your decision? 

Those are the questions that today’s guest on Making Bank, Rome Za, had to answer for himself when he came to the stark realization he didn’t want to finish his tertiary education and become a nurse. 

Rather than do the “smart thing”—finish his degree and get out of debt—Rome did the “honest thing”: 

He quit nursing school just two units short of his degree, borrowed a bunch of money, and went into “crazy debt” to open up a martial arts academy in Brooklyn, New York. 

Opening that academy turned out to be the smartest decision Rome could have made, and the business easily cleared six-figures in its first year of operation. 

Though he no longer runs the academy, Rome still continues to help people with their personal development, be it mental, physical, or spiritual. Specifically, Rome spends his days helping A-type personalities and other successful entrepreneurs get rid of unwanted stress and tap into their true potential.

So, listen-up to hear Josh ask Rome about helping high-performers get rid of their unwanted stress, and...

  • Life in pre-Giuliani Brooklyn
  • Why entrepreneurs need coaching
  • What it means to find The Warrior Within
  • Making the decision to quit school and “go for it”
  • What makes helping people such a powerful exercise 

And much, much more...

Hustle Smart with Guest Ramon Ray: MakingBank S2E24

=== SUMMARY ===

For many aspiring entrepreneurs, the question isn’t “do I want to leave my day job?, the question is, “when do I leave my day job?

 “How do I leave my day job?” “What will happen to my family if I leave my day job?” “How will I pay rent, buy groceries, and avoid going broke if I leave my day job?

 Whether you’re making $100,000 a year or $50,000 year, the idea of saying “I quit” to chase a dream can feel like an impossible challenge, but it’s a challenge you must overcome be it by strength or fortune if you want to become an entrepreneur.

And few people know the fears and doubts of addressing that challenge as well as today’s guest on Making Bank, Ramon Ray.

 Ramon once spent his days toiling away in the confines of a cubicle, working a comfortable but ultimately unfulfilling day job at the United Nations. Although he had long thought about making the leap to life as a full-time entrepreneur, the idea of leaving his steady job was both unnerving and unsettling. It wasn’t until his “contract wasn’t renewed” (UN-speak for “you’re fired”) that he finally took the plunge. 

Today, Ramon is the proud founder of four different companies, a sought-after public speaker, and a best-selling author.

 His latest hustle, Smart Hustle Magazine, “is a community of small business owners with an entrepreneurial mindset” that shares the challenges, victories, and hustles of life as a budding entrepreneur and small business owner.

 Tune-in to this episode to hear Ramon and Josh discuss what it takes to build a truly thriving company, as well as... 

  • How to go from Zero to 60
  • Why the money is in content
  • What it means to scale and how to learn about it
  • How to break through early entrepreneurial challenges
  • Why a business built on a passion is always a smart idea

and much, much more...

The Power of Adaptability with Guest Tom Bilyeu: Making Bank S2E23

November 6, 2017

MAKING BANK is now a weekly YouTube TV show / iTunes Podcast full of #Success and #Business with Josh.

Subscribe to the Podcast MP3: http://bit.ly/TumblrSubscribe

=== SUMMARY ===

 

In the realm of entrepreneurship, it’s neither the strongest nor the smartest that survives—it’s the most adaptive.

 

The entrepreneur who can see and adapt themselves to the incessant tides of change is worth more to the economy than the savviest graduate from Harvard Business School, or the world’s most relentless cold-calling salesman.

 

But adaptability rarely gets the attention it deserves, often overshadowed by business pundits who want to write or speak about “getting smart” or “getting tough” as a means to achieving entrepreneurial ends.

 

That changes today.

 

Today, on Making Bank, host Josh Felber invites entrepreneur, fitness fanatic, and film-freak Tom Bilyeu to discuss the power of adaptability and self-belief.

 

As a child, Tom was obsessed with two arts that made him feel alive—comedy and film—and his passion was so all-consuming that he pursued a career in both for decades.

 

But as much as Tom loved his two arts, he knew needed a path to wealth as well.

 

So, what did Tom do?

 

He adapted.

 

He transformed his thinking. He shifted from a fixed-mindset to a growth-mindset, and in doing so, he started down a path that would lead to unimaginable wealth and success.

 

The company Tom started in 2010—along with co-founders Ron Penna and Mike Osborn—was called Quest Nutrition, and within three years it became the #2 on the Fastest Growing Company in America, according to INC Magazine.

 

Without his penchant for adaptation and his willingness to engage in a growth-mindset, Tom would have stuck with his career in film like a stubborn bulldog and missed his financial white whale.

 

Today, Tom spends the majority of his time running a new venture called Impact Theory, a for-profit media company designed to end the generational poverty that is caused by the toxic “poor mindset”.

 

Tune-in to hear Josh and Tom discuss the development of Tom's latest venture, Impact Theory, as well as...

 

  • The limitations of constrictive belief systems
  • What it means to make someone else your #1
  • The value of being totally open and exposed and vulnerable to criticism
  • What it takes to build (and maintain) a successful marriage
  • How entrepreneurs should distinguish themselves if they’re just getting started

 And much, much more...

From Homeless to Six Figures with Guest Liz Benny: MakingBank S2E22

=== SUMMARY ===

Any entrepreneur can tell you about their moment.

The moment they looked in the mirror, and said to the exhausted face staring back at them, can I actually make it? Will I actually achieve the success I’m striving for or am I killing myself for nothing?

It is at this critical moment that we define ourselves as entrepreneurs.

It is at this critical moment that we tap into our inner-most belief—our unrelenting, unyielding belief in ourselves—to push through the pain, push past the doubt, and keep working towards our goal.

As entrepreneurs, our deep, unspoken belief in ourselves is what guides us on a day to day basis. It’s what allows us to conduct business, and achieve the goals we set for ourselves.

No one knows this fact better than today’s guest on Making Bank, Liz Benny.

Early in her entrepreneurial career, Liz didn’t have a whole lot of self-belief. She had been homeless. Been defeated. And been discouraged about the future.

It wasn’t until Liz started tapping into her belief in herself—wasn’t until she started reminding herself that she could do anything—that she started making the strides that would lead her to where she is today.

And where is she?

Sitting at the head two businesses (Jinga Social and Social Monkey Business), generating seven-figures in revenue, and creating high-yielding online courses and digital resources that help other aspiring entrepreneurs achieve greatness in their own lives.

And while she still faces her fair share of entrepreneurial struggles on a daily basis, Liz continues to press forward, reminding herself with a little KAPOW-energy that she really does have the power to do anything she wants.

So tune-in to today’s episode to hear Liz Benny and host Josh Felber discuss the power of the positive mindset, and an array of other topics, including...

✓ How to leverage passion to make life-altering change
✓ Why fostering the RIGHT mindset is indispensable for your business
✓ What you can do to effectively share the load and delegate tasks
✓ Why accountability partners are essential for your growth as an entrepreneur
✓ The difference between KNOWING and ACCEPTING yourself
✓ How the entrepreneurial journey is defined by both the highs AND the lows

And much, much more...

The Art of Making Things Happen with Guest Steve Sims: MakingBank S2E21

=== SUMMARY ===

 

There is an old saying that most entrepreneurs know well:

 

If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.

 

And that’s a saying today’s guest on Making Bank, Steve Sims, not only believes in, but fully embodies.

 

In fact, Steve is usually the dumbest person in the room, and that’s just fine by him. Truth be told, being the dumbest person in the room is Steve’s greatest talent. Where “smarter” people might obsess about how insurmountable a task might be, “simple Steve” just starts working on it.

 

He just starts making phone calls, starts mailing letters, starts sending gifts—anything he can do to make a connection.

 

Stated simply, Steve keeps knocking on opportunity’s door until his knuckles are bleeding and opportunity has no choice but to open up.

 

Steve Sims went from the rough and tumble streets of lower-middle class London, to earning notoriety in publications like The Wall Street Journal, the London Sunday Times, and Forbes using grit and little else.

 

His fee-based concierge firm—Bluefish—costs $5,000 a year to join, and manages the travel, experiences, and events, for some of the world’s most successful people. He’s helped clients sing with Lady Gaga, take a submarine to the Titanic, and even get married at the Vatican.

 

And therein lies the lesson for entrepreneurs both established and aspiring.

 

Success it’s a binary who you know or what you know equation. Success can also be achieved by unrelenting hard work, and a personal resolve that refuses to quit even in the face of overwhelming odds of incessant failure.

 

So, tune-in and listen-up to hear Steve and Josh talk about determination and the stupidity gene, as well as...

 

  • The dangers of listening to the “but...” in your head
  • Why you should only associate with people you like
  • Why you need to do whatever it is that you want to do
  • What it means to take a setback on the chin and keep moving forward
  • How to not only overcome commonly perceived weaknesses, but turn them into strenghts

And much, much more...

=== SUMMARY ===

 

 

What does it take to be a great entrepreneur?

 

Well...it takes confidence, pride, and a good idea.

 

But more than anything, it takes a whole lot of guts.

 

(Not everyone can walk into a room of ice-cold investors and drop an elevator pitch, or leave the security of a job to launch a company with little more than an idea.)

 

Great entrepreneurs have an incredible amount of courage.

 

They need that courage because as much as they prepare, research, and plan, nothing is certain.

 

No entrepreneur knows if their product or service will be a success, all they know is that taking action is the only way to drive a result, be it a positive or negative one. Entrepreneurs leap before they look, and learn as they go.

 

For those of you looking to meet an entrepreneur who is the very embodiment of the word “courage”, sit down, strap-in, and get ready for today’s episode of Making Bank with guest Maxwell Finn, a man loves to take action and learn on the fly.

 

Maxwell’s done everything from training realtors in the art of online marketing (a nearly impossible task), to surviving a failed startup thanks to a bunch of crooked IT professionals. His biggest success, a t-shirt company that celebrates entrepreneurship called, Startup Drugz, became a six-figure business in just 12-months.

 

Today, Maxwell is a managing partner at Quantum Media Marketing and Maxwell Finn, where he uses his knowledge and his entrepreneurial experience to help millions of clients achieve their own marketing success.

 

Tune-in to hear Maxwell and host Josh Felber discuss why courage is such a critical component of entrepreneurship, as well as...

 

  • Why you need to know IT to build an IT company
  • The importance of capital in constructing a tech startup
  • The most common mistakes made by ecommerce website and how to fix them
  • How you can maximize ecommerce success with specific tools
  • What it takes to create a winning Facebook Ad campaign
  • The best process for turning ice cold leads into sales

And much, much more...

=== SUMMARY ===

“I am a failure.”

Sooner or later, it’s a thought every entrepreneur is forced to endure.

But are we really failures? Or are we simply just enduring a bump on life’s journey? A journey of ups and downs that everyone takes?

No matter how successful or “perfect” an entrepreneur might seem on the outside, behind the veil there’s a debris field of disappointment—of ideas and initiatives and investments that went catastrophically wrong. 

As entrepreneurs, we spend countless quantities of energy trying to mask our debris field—trying to hide the hurt—so we can only project the good stuff. But in doing so, we never actually address the blocks that are holding us back from our true potential.

And that’s something today’s guest on Making Bank—Mastin Kipp—wants to change.

Mastin is a #1 best-selling author, speaker, and “life interventionist” for entrepreneurs who need to get over their “blocks” and change their lives in a profound way.  His personal development company helps struggling entrepreneurs create rapid change so they can bring more passion and purpose to their lives.

In addition to his success as an author and entrepreneur, Mastin has forged incredible relationships with some of the world’s most recognizable entrepreneurs including Tony Robbins, Dave Asprey, and Oprah Winfrey.

Tune-in to hear Mastin and host Josh Felber discuss the importance of getting past blocks and rediscovering your purpose, as well as...

  • The myth of self-sabotage
  • Why you need to read the tea leaves
  • What it’s like to truly fall from grace
  • The hidden benefits and many forms of mentorship
  • How service can be a conduit for success
  • And much, much more...

FLOW - Fulfilling Life by Optimizing Work with Guest James Nowlin: MakingBank S2E18

=== SUMMARY ===

Many entrepreneurs build successful businesses simply by focusing on their greatest strength—the one thing they do better than anyone else.

But how many entrepreneurs build successful businesses by focusing on their greatest weakness?

And that’s what makes today’s guest on Making Bank, Chandler Bolt, so interesting—he decided to go against the grain and build a business with his greatest weakness—writing.

A lifetime “C” English student and college dropout, Chandler overcame his hatred of writing to write five, best-selling books including The Productive Person, Book Launch, and Published.

He then went on to start the Self-Publishing School, a business that’s helped thousands of people write and publish their own books. The school did $3.2 MILLION in revenue during its first year of operation, and is today considered the #1 online resource for first-time authors.

Tune-in as Chandler demystifies the book writing process and discusses...

  • The importance of learning by doing
  • Why you need to crunch the timeline for writing
  • The 3 stages of writing a book: mind map, outline, write
  • The danger of tying your self-worth to your business
  • The importance of daily success rituals
  • How to work through the struggles of writing a book Few things are as unhelpful or as destructive to the entrepreneur as an interruption—those events and occurrences that jar you from your flow-state, and completely throw off your momentum.

An unexpected phone call...An untimely resignation....An unresponsive third-party contractor...A complaint from a client...

Interruptions like these aren’t just disruptive, they’re discouraging. They sap you of your energy, and poison your otherwise positive working attitude.

And what does that lead to? Nothing short of a total drop in productivity.

But the thing that’s most frustrating about interruptions is this:

They will never go away.

As long as you’re an entrepreneur, you’re going to be forced to deal with distractions and disruptions. They will be as regular as the rising and the setting of the sun.

The good news is, you don’t have to learn how to eliminate interruptions, and you don’t need to go to extremes to avoid them—you just need to learn how to experience them.

Which is why host Josh Felber is excited to welcome guest James Nowlin, onto today’s episode of Making Bank.

A successful businessman who knows exactly what it takes to overcome the biggest interruption of all—death—James helps entrepreneurs understand how to approach interruptions in a healthy, positive way. A way that allows them to mitigate the chance of any negative outcome or impact.

By teaching others how to cultivate a mindset that embraces interruptions for what they are—an unavoidable eventuality—James transforms his followers and fellow entrepreneurs into unstoppable tsunamis of productivity.  

Tune-in to hear James talk about his company, Excel Global Partners, his latest book, The Purposeful Millionaire, as well as...

How to have a mindset that is powerful and purposeful

Why a life worth living is one of reflection and careful examination

What “energy deposits” and “energy withdrawals” look like

    How to employ routines for success

    What it means to become a manager of your energy

    Why gratitude is essential for a distraction-proof mindset

    What it means to establish a state of flow

    How you can find the right meditation practice

 

And much more…

Consciously Deciding with Guest Dave Asprey: MakingBank S2E17

=== SUMMARY ===

When the world acts, how do you react?

 

When you’re threatened by someone on the street...

 

When you find yourself in awkward moment at the office...

 

...Do you consciously decide what happens next, or do you let your instincts take over?

 

The truth is, very few people author their own script. Most let their instincts rule. Most simply react with little to no cognitive decision-making driving that reaction. 

 

But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can author our own script. We can train our minds to respond to stressors and stimulants any way we want, and in doing so, we can gain complete control of our actions.

 

At least that is the dead-set belief of today’s Making Bank guest, Dave Asprey—famed creator of Bulletproof Coffee, Bulletproof Labs, and author of Head Strong, a book written to help entrepreneurs access the untapped wells of energy hiding in the brain. 

 

Through disciplined training and biohacking, Dave helps entrepreneurs learn how to completely control the behaviors of mind and the body, so they can stop reacting to life’s little hiccups, and start consciously deciding how to experience them.  

 

For entrepreneurs who know what it’s like to ride the emotional rollercoaster up and down, day-in and day-out, the kind of control Dave offers through his company and brand is nothing short of a godsend.

 

Tune-in to hear Dave and Josh discuss the science behind Bulletproof Labs, and the many ways in which Dave helps entrepreneurs become biohacking masters.

 

In today’s episode, you’ll also learn...

 

  • Why your brain is deaf to itself
  • How to measure the power of neurofeedback
  • How tools like NeurOptimal work
  • Why you need to break the habit of self-deception in the mind
  • What it takes to “upgrade” the brain in minutes
  • How YOU can reprogram your nervous system and how it responds to the world
  • The ONE mantra entrepreneur needs to memorize

And much more…

=== SUMMARY ===

When was the last time you stopped dead in your tracks and really thought about your life?

 

The work that you do? The way you spend your time? The places you devote your energy? The people and relationships you invest in?

 

If you’re like most people, it’s been a long, long time.

 

The unfortunately reality is very few things actually motivate you to sit up and take notice of your life. (And the things that do motivate you are generally unpleasant.)

 

Most of the time, you’re operating on auto-pilot—just like everyone else—because you’re content. You might not have everything you want, but you’re content and comfortable with what you currently have. 

 

It’s not until that contentment is threatened or jeopardized that you feel motivated to stop and evaluate what you’re doing. When the circumstances of your life change, when you are forced to confront an end—the end of your relationship, the end of your career, the end of your life, etc.—that is when you are presented with one of life’s rare opportunities...

 

The opportunity to sit up and take notice...

 

The opportunity to ask yourself:

 

Is this how I really want to be living my life?

 

It’s a question that today’s guest on Making Bank, Brett Campbell, had to ask himself not too long ago.

 

As an incredibly successful entrepreneur, Brett never considered stopping to take inventory of his life, and why would he? His fitness business was quickly becoming a fitness empire, and Brett was quickly accelerating towards a towards the top-tier of the industry.

 

But when a close friend passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, Brett’s world came to a grinding halt. The untimely loss of this close friend forced Brett to come face-to-face with the terms of his own mortality. That time, more than anything else, was his most precious commodity.

 

With this realization in mind, Brett began to reevaluating his life. He began asking himself—is this what I really want to be doing?

 

And it was in asking this question that Brett discovered something surprising.

 

In spite of all the success he had enjoyed, he didn’t want to spend his days toiling away in the fitness business. He wanted to follow his passions for speaking and writing, and use those passions to coax other people towards their full potential.

And much more…
