Episode 56 is on fire with Neil Pasricha, Author, Speaker, Podcast Host, etc. I heard Neil speak at an event early in 2019 and made a point to reach out to him to get him on the Podcast. Was so appreciate for him taking some time out to share his story. I don’t think conversations around happiness and fulfillment in life happen as much and it is just assumed that you’ll be happy if you continue on some set path society puts you on at an early age. I’m glad Neil is touring the world to share a different message and help people rethink what happiness really should be.

Our clients are CEOs with $50-400 million in revenue who are stuck in the “Growth Trap” (more on the Growth Trap: http://tinyurl.com/25mtvx4). Already successful, they are obsessed with creating growth, but cannot predictably generate the growth, financial, or quality of life results they want through their organization.

That’s exactly what we help our clients do! Here are a few reasons our clients choose us:

1. We have a comprehensive, proven, straightforward approach to permanently overcome the root causes (http://tinyurl.com/25mtvx4) of the “Growth Trap.”

2. We implement crisp accountability and organizational alignment – fast.

3. The results are measurable.

4. We have a satisfaction guarantee and a “short pay” guarantee to lower risk and ensure a return on investment.

We seek referrals to business leaders who are:

1. Open to new ideas that drive profitable growth, or

2. Frustrated that they are in the “Growth Trap,” or

3. Tired of hiring great people who, over time, fail to deliver, or

4 Seeking real, sustainable behavioral change and improved performance

We are a Certified Coaching Partner with Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches (formerly Gazelles International). I am a member of the Global Core Advisory Team for Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches, the Master Trainer for practice development and a Coach / Mentor for other coaches worldwide.

Had an extremely deep and inspiring talk on episode 53 with Derrius Quarles and we called this “Part 1” as we just scratched the surface of his journey. We went deep into his upbringing and early years around foster care and how we got out of that situation to get over a Million Dollars in scholarship money to go to college. Ultimately, that drive helped propel him to start Million Dollar Scholar and kick-start his entrepreneur career.

About Derrius

Born and bred on the South Side of Chicago, I marched through 13 years of foster care after losing my father to violence and being separated from my mother to become a first-generation Ivy League graduate.

Experiencing poverty first-hand provided all the motivation I needed to hustle. Selling snacks at Kenwood Academy High School freshman year would spark my passion for building businesses. Since then I have leveraged technology to grow multiple companies that are currently improving the lives of various marginalized groups . My first book, Million Dollar Scholar: Winning The Scholarship Race has helped thousands of students across the globe increase their knowledge of how to make higher education more affordable through scholarships and grants and my business ventures have collectively impacted the lives of over 15,000 marginalized youth in America.

As the Co-Founder and CEO of the financial services company BREAUX Capital, I assist the 70% of Black millennials who would not be able to afford a $1,000 financial emergency enhance their financial health through a powerful combination of software that automates savings behavior and education through a peer community. As the Founder and CEO of Million Dollar Scholar, an education technology social enterprise, I help low-income high school students acquire scholarships to pursue higher education. As the Founder and Brand Architect at DQ and Partners, a web design agency, I partner with emerging business and influencer brands that are improving communities in the fields of education, technology, health, art, and equity.  

A driving force behind my inspiration is a humbling honor I received from Harry Belafonte at the 2012 Common Ground Gala hosted by musician and actor, Common. Mr. Belafonte said to the audience that “Derrius is the dream Dr. King and I, as well as so many others, fought for…”. Since that evening, I have decided to carry the metaphoric torch that he handed to me.

In 2015, I was honored by Barack Obama at the White House for his activism in expanding educational access and named to Black Enterprise’s 100 Modern Men in 2017.  Beyond these awards, my work has been highlighted by Time Magazine, The New York Times, Associated Press, CNN, HuffPost, MTV, and BET amongst others. Most recently, I was an Entrepreneur in Residence at TED where I delivered a dope TED Talk discussing the role large banks have played in economically marginalizing Black Americans and the innovation BREAUX Capital represents in the marketplace for Black millennials.

Episode 52 features newly minted Author, Rita Serra! Had an incredible conversation with Rita that takes us all over the world and explores her journey traveling and writing her book of poetry.

I am always fascinated by people who can just go out on their own and travel to exotic and interesting places without thinking twice about it and Rita is certainly one of those people. Her stories about traveling to Europe and southeast Asia are incredible and excited for everyone to listen through this episode and get to know Rita a little more.

About Rita:

Heyyo! I’m Rita, a funky, free-spirited, often forget… Full of life, writer. This blog focuses on my escapades as a solo, female, budget traveler who lives an alternative lifestyle constantly in transit.

When I first set out into the world, I had a simple eight month trip split between Europe and Asia in mind. After about 48 hours of being in Asia I knew normalcy was forever adversary and I was destined to be a renegade revolving on the backside of reality. I decided perma-vagabond was the life for me.

If you DREAM of traveling the world but don’t think you have what it takes, think again! You don’t have to be an epic hero to travel the globe. I’m much closer to being Clark Griswold than Odysseus. Don’t believe me? Once I managed to walk 40 minutes down the street before realizing my backpack was unzipped, and when I finally did I no longer owned a raincoat. Later that same day, I left my Firkenstocks ($5 “Birkenstocks”)  behind in a different city. This brought my lost ‘n wandering soul count to five pairs of sandals in five months. Yeah…

Now that I’ve put my (probably bare) foot in my mouth, I hope I conveyed: if I can do this, anybody can.

Despite never ceasing to put the blonde in that blonde vagabond, I’ve been surviving and thriving alone, and on the road for over two years. I am chock-full of travel tips and have self-deprecating stories galore. That’s right, the laughs on me and I won’t even charge you my two cents… Oh I should probably mention, I like to pepper in puns to spice things up. So call me Hootie, because if you hold my hand, I’ll take you to the promise land.

Jackie has had quite an interesting journey throughout her life from coming up through the ranks of competitive swimming, to scaling up the corporate ladder, to having her life turned upside down by a medical diagnosis.

About Jackie:

HEY! I’m Jackie. A former Corporate Executive turned Coach with a passion to optimize human potential. In today’s rapid paced environment, our ability to have real & authentic conversations is limited. In fact, as humans we often move through our days on autopilot thinking the same thoughts, creating the same experiences and having the same results.

The majority of our conditioned behaviours and thought patterns leave us determined to gain success, happiness and recognition outside of ourselves. Believing that the new car, job title or relationship will create our fulfillment and happiness. We seek recognition and approval from society, communities, parents, friends and loved ones – yet we live a life with internal chaos, high levels of stress, often feeling overwhelmed and anxious. That’s where I come in.

Bringing conscious awareness to the limiting belief systems and conditioned behaviours will allow you to shift your perspective and make empowered choices. As a coach, I use a hybrid approach leveraging my background in Corporate Human Resource, Executive Coaching, Neuroscience and Spirituality to create forward momentum for those that are feeling stuck. Each program is designed to meet you in your current reality and is focused on quieting the mind, simplifying life, creating realistic boundaries and clear action plans.

On Episode 48 I sit down with a great guy and someone I’ve gotten to know well over the past year, Joshua Peach. Peach is a Corporate Evangelist at Dude Solutions and shares the great message of the company across the country with many events and speaking engagements. Additionally, Peach started a movement called Be Au Sm that is swiffering the nation and bringing a positive message that is much needed in our world today.

About Peach:

Twenty-seven years ago on my 16th birthday, my mother dropped me off at the local Shaw’s supermarket to apply for a job. I landed the job of bagger/carriage wrangler and quickly learned how important customer service is to an individual’s shopping experience. The smiles and services provided by the employees were just as, if not more, important than the items on the shelf or competitive pricing the store offered. At 17 years old I was named the Employee of the Month for three months in a row. Although there have been the expected bumps in the road that two plus decades of working brings, for the most part I have carried the idea that a positive attitude can change an entire day. 

For the last fifteen years I have been a part of a dream team at Dude Solutions, Inc. I spent the first twelve years in sales, starting out as a client representative and eventually becoming a National Strategic Sales Leader. Three years ago my role transitioned and I became the first Corporate Evangelist at Dude Solutions. I have the pleasure of speaking to tens of thousands of people and the ability to attempt to make a positive impact on as many of those people as possible. Along with my speaking engagements for Dude Solutions, I am in the process of releasing a weekly podcast as well as a book titled “Be Au Sm: The Essential Elements to Kicking Ass”.

Very intriguing episode and really showcases the fact that as long as you keep working hard in life and being curious that doors and opportunities can open.

About Simon:

Originally from South Africa, Simon is persistently curious: he came to NYC to attend NYU for grad school in philosophy, then completed studies in math and finance, before leaving the classroom to pursue his passion for media and technology. Simon is an analytically driven leader with experience at TED, the Clinton Global Initiative, and K2 Intelligence.

Episode 28 features Bryan Wish, Growth Consultant for global-impact visionaries and the marketing strategist behind Allen Gannett’s book “The Creative Curve”.  I met Bryan serendipitously last year when setting up Allen Gannett on the Just Get Started Podcast. Unfortunately, as I tell the story, the audio didn’t record properly and the interview with Allen never launched.  However, I stayed in contact with Bryan and was appreciative for him to share his story on this latest episode.  We went into some depth around his childhood and how early challenges helped ultimately pave the way for carving out some great opportunities with some sports franchises and now some of his business endeavors.  A lot of energy and passion out of Bryan and really enjoyed his insight on business, networking, and creating your own opportunities.

About Bryan:

For years, I have used my abilities to both discover and foster growth opportunities behind professional sports franchises, global investment funds, and CEO visionaries turning their dreams into tangible results. Noticing untapped potential in ticket sales in the collegiate market for the Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Braves, I created segmented marketing and sales programs that have done more than $300k in sales to date. My own vision helped curate 800+ impactful stories which have been read by more than 500,000+ readers on The Wish Dish. From 2016-2017, I helped establish a foundational community outreach system for The Kairos Society – a network of young entrepreneurs featured in Inc., Forbes, and Wired Magazine – building a fellowship of more than 500 up-and-coming entrepreneurs in 40 countries and counting. Currently based in Washington D.C., I spend my waking hours meeting, fostering, and influencing entrepreneurs to act on their most empowering visions.

Through years of reflection, I’ve developed a high-functioning growth mindset to continuously progress, despite obstacles of every kind. Time after time, I’ve transitioned one “no” into the next “how can I get there?” I can see a story, visualize its potential, and then get up and go make it happen.

Episode 20 features a true entrepreneur at heart and a guy with so much experience under his belt I wish I got to spend several hours with him.  Chip was a delight to speak with and we covered a variety of topics about his upbringing having to adjust from an introvert to extrovert during adolescence, taking a gamble on his first hotel property, and making a shift in his life at the age of 52 to take on a role at fast-growing Airbnb

I think you’ll all love the entire conversation with Chip and for more about him and to find him online please see links below:

About Chip:

Rebel hospitality entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author, Chip Conley is a leader at the forefront of the sharing economy. At age 26 he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality (JdV), transforming one inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America. After running his company as CEO for 24 years, he sold it and soon the young founders of Airbnb asked him to help transform their promising start-up into the world’s leading hospitality brand. Chip served as Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy for four years and today acts as the company’s Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership. His five books include PEAK and EMOTIONAL EQUATIONS and are inspired by the theories of transformation and meaning by famed psychologists Abraham Maslow and Viktor Frankl.

In his new book, WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder (September 2018), Chip shares his experiences – as both mentor and unexpected intern – at Airbnb. He is the founder of Fest300 (part of Everfest), San Francisco’s annual “Celebrity Pool Toss” that has raised millions for families in the neighborhood where he opened his first hotel, and the Hotel Hero Awards that shine a light on outstanding line level employees. Chip is a recipient of hospitality’s highest honor, the Pioneer Award, and holds a BA and MBA from Stanford University, and an honorary doctorate in psychology from Saybrook University. He serves on the boards of the Burning Man Project and the Esalen Institute, where the Conley Library bears his name.

In Episode 18, We speak with Stu Heinecke about his career in marketing, how he broke into being a cartoonist, and ways people can think about bringing value and setting themselves apart from the pack.  Stu has done some neat things throughout his career and figuring out a way to combine his passion for marketing along with his creative chops of being a Cartoonist led him to forging ahead with his own business and seeing success early on.  

About Stu Heinecke

If ever there was someone born to write a book like How To Get A Meeting with Anyone, Stu Heinecke is that person.  A Wall Street Journal cartoonist, Hall of Fame-nominated marketer and author, Heinecke discovered the magic of “Contact Marketing” early in his career, when he launched a Contact Campaign to just two dozen Vice Presidents and Directors of Circulation at the big Manhattan-based magazine publishers.  That tiny $100 investment resulted in a 100% response rate, launched his enterprise and brought in millions of dollars worth of business.

The ability to connect with the people most important to realizing one’s goals ultimately became an obsession.  While Heinecke regularly employs his own cartoon-based contact methods, he became intensely interested in how others have solved this unique challenge.  As a result, he has uncovered a highly unique form of marketing that until now has had no name, yet it produces response rates as high as 100% and ROI figures in the tens, even hundreds of thousands of percent.  In How To Get A Meeting with Anyone, he not only gives Contact Marketing its name, but provides us with a definitive guide to what it is, how it works and has cataloged twenty categories of Contact Campaign types.

Heinecke is the host of Contact Marketing Radio, Founder and President of “Contact,” a Contact Marketing agency, and co-Founder of Cartoonists.org, a coalition of famed cartoonists dedicated to raising funds for charity, while raising the profile of the cartooning art form.  He lives on an island in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with his wife, Charlotte, and their dog, Bo.

Michael and I speak about his childhood and how his father got him into music, his family as a great support system, getting a chance to be interviewed by Mario Lopez and of course we get some of his insight surrounding his life changing performance on America’s Got Talent.  Here is the link to that performance if you haven’t seen it – Michael Ketterer on America’s Got Talent

Episode 15 features Michael Bosstick, CEO of Dear Media, a Podcast network primarily focused around female hosts and talent, and he is the Co-Host of the Skinny Confidential Him and Her Podcast.  I was fortunate to interview his wife, Lauryn Evarts (@theskinnyconfidential) back in Episode 11 and really enjoyed getting a chance to speak with Michael in this episode and learning about his unique story.

Michael learned early on from his father that you have to work for what you want and after some early childhood jobs he figured out that he wanted to pave his own path and create opportunities for himself.  Early after college Michael ventured out to fill a gap he found in corporate aircrafts with a business called JetBeds and has now grown that over the last 10 years to be the most successful company in the space.

Michael is now extremely involved in digital media and finding new and creative ways to build an online brand.  We converse about many topics including business, the power of voice as a platform of the future, and many other intriguing insights.  

I enjoyed one of Michael’s quotes where he says, “I spend 90% of my time focusing on solutions and 10% of the time looking at the problem”, and it’s no surprise he’s been successful with his optimistic mindset on business and how to scale effectively.

I was intrigued to learn more about Tracy and the Fangirl Sports Network when I came across her profile many months back. It’s great to see someone that saw a gap in the market, especially relating to content focused for the female fan, and then took the opportunity to do something about it instead of just sitting on the idea and doing nothing with it.  The trajectory of the Fangirl Sports Network is pointing upwards and it will be exciting to see all of the interesting things they do as they grow into this season and beyond.

Episode 12 picks up right where we left off and I interview Chris David Garcia, the creator of the Major Level Creative CONNECT sports conference as well as the Creative Director for the Houston Astros.

I met Chris about 3 years ago and we have been friends ever since and I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to join three MLC Connect Conferences in the past and look forward to the continued success of the conference as they hit the 5-year anniversary mark this June.  Chris is an extremely talented graphic designer but more than that is his personality and character which are phenomenal in the way he interacts and treats others.  He is a very selfless individual that is always looking for ways to help others become the best version of themselves and improve their own craft.

Furthermore, I feel Chris has been a disruptor in the creative world and his insightful ideas and passion for always bringing your best has led to the creation of probably the best conference I have ever been to. It’s intimate. It’s personal. It’s educational. It’s fun.  Top notch speakers surrounded by some of the most talented people in the sports design world.  It’s incredible!

Those reasons are exactly why I told Chris prior to launching the podcast that he has to be a guest as I knew he’d be able to bring the fire as well as some great stories.  He didn’t disappoint in this episode at all!

Episode 9 was a blast talking with Speaker and Author David Rendall. I met David for the first time in the spring of 2017 at the High Five Conference in Raleigh, NC where he was giving a keynote and he left an imprint on my life because I agreed so much with what he was speaking about. It was almost like he was speaking directly to me and some of his experiences actually helped guide me onto some of the things I am involved in today.

In this episode we discussed a variety of topics associated with valuing not only your strengths but also your weaknesses and pursuing adulthood with things that make you happy and are what you want to do vs what others think you should be doing. David explains his upbringing, dealing with tragedy, how an experience in college altered his life, practical advice on becoming a better speaker and much more.

I hope you all take a listen through and I think you will appreciate the vast knowledge as well as the great perspective David has on life.

David can be found on his website at http://www.drendall.com or on twitter @daverendall or find one of his books on Amazon and go take a read.
