Brandon is on his own path to build his first 7+ figure business while staying in alignment with the 7FM values and sharing what he learns along the way.
Brandon Fong is a husband to his high school sweetheart, Leah, and is on a mission to create a more deeply connected world.
While growing up on the government-provided “free lunch program” at school, Brandon realized that his most valuable resource wasn’t money… it was his relationships. This is why, at his core, Brandon is a connector — of people, ideas, and resources.
Before age 26, Brandon leveraged his skill of connection to become a published author, run the marketing for an online education company with 250,000+ students, travel to 23 countries with his wife, get featured on TV, and launch his podcast, 7-Figure Millennials, to a top 2% global ranking in less than a year.
Every week, Brandon interviews elite performers with eclectic backgrounds to discover how he and his audience can prioritize their happiness, health, and relationships while making their entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Brandon is on his own path to build his first 7+ figure business while staying in alignment with the 7FM values and sharing what he learns along the way.
Past guests include Olympians, an illusionist, a decorated air fighter pilot, a hypnotist, former drug dealers turned (legal) millionaires, a Hollywood storytelling legend, NYT bestselling authors, main stage TED speakers, 7, 8, and 9+ figure entrepreneurs, and even a Shark from Shark Tank.
Brandon is also the creator of The Magic Connection Method™ — a system that helps Founders and CEOs to leverage a podcast to build real relationships with dream clients and strategic partners that lead to more profits and greater impact.
He loves having new and incredible experiences with Leah, enjoying a good batch of homemade kombucha, and playing Spikeball.

Born and raised in small-town Mansfield, Connecticut, Alexa Curtis knew she was different. She didn’t fit into the “normal social mold.” When she entered middle school, all the bullying she endured led her to need an outlet to escape. In 2011, at just 12 years old, she started a fashion blog; A Life in the Fashion Lane. It became a platform for her to express her feelings around everything relating to teens, body image, and mental health.
As Curtis evolved as a person, her blog naturally shifted from fashion to discussing sensitive topics that teens and young adults face every day. A Life in the Fashion Lane was changed to Life Unfiltered with Alexa Curtis and became a lifestyle website and podcast for teens & parents discussing topics such as social media and mental health. Not only did Curtis turn her little fashion blog into a full-time lifestyle platform for teens, through cold-pitching, but she also managed to get sponsored by brands like British Airways, T-Mobile, Lands’ End, and more.
In 2018, Alexa founded the Be Fearless Summit, which is a pop-up summit that appeared at Drexel University on March 15th, 2020. The next summit was slated for April 1, 2020, at UC Berkeley. Sponsors include Headspace, Shake Shack, and Morphe.
Curtis has spoken at numerous colleges; Northeastern, UConn, Eastern Connecticut, Rutgers along with high schools – discussing how to be fearless as well as mental health and social media. In October 2018, Curtis spoke alongside Amal Clooney and Serena Williams at Penn Women and in Sept 2018, Curtis added ‘host’ to her arsenal as she launched her own radio show on Radio Disney called “Fearless Every Day” with Alexa Curtis. “Fearless Every Day” was the first of its kind and broke new ground for the Radio Disney brand. Alexa interviewed various guests who shared their journey of overcoming obstacles/challenges and chasing after their dreams.
When Curtis is not hard at work, she meditates frequently and makes time for hobbies like cooking and exercising to keep herself grounded. Although she is based in Los Angeles, she spends part of her time on the east coast.
Back in 2015 when I first began thinking of starting a podcast there were a lot of ideas in my head about what to do and how to go about it. After overthinking, making excuses, and ultimately failing at starting for two years, I finally took the leap and begun. Thus, the podcast name “Just Get Started” was born.
The reason, you might ask, as to why Just Get Started stuck with me is that I know there are a lot of people out there just like me. They have an idea and want to accomplish something bigger but for some reason, they have been pinned down by naysayers, fear of the unknown, and most of all, negative self-talk that buries your confidence and clouds your judgment. I want everyone to realize they have to take a different path than the norm to get more done then they have ever imagined. To do that, you must take the first step to overcome that fear and Just Get Started.
This won’t be a novel. This isn’t rocket science. There are a ton of great resources out there about monetizing podcasts, growing a following, and doing all sorts of crazy things with them. But, none of that matters until you start and I wanted to share one perspective on how you might go about it.
So, just like with what I struggled with, I wanted to give everyone some insight into what you might want to consider thinking about when beginning a podcast and some useful questions to ask yourself along the way. I’ll share a few tools I have used that have helped but in no way are the answer to every situation. A simple Google search would give you several options that may fit just as well and I’d encourage that. But don’t hamstring yourself with overthinking it. That’s what I did. Don’t make the mistake that you have to have everything figured out on Day 1 because you don’t.
This is not the end all be all guide to podcasting. I imagine, however, most people reading this are like me. They’ve listened to podcasts and enjoy the content and have always wanted to create their own but it seems like a ton of work and a lot of money that is needed to be spent to get started. I’m here to tell you that’s not the case at all and that you can create your own very quickly and with solid quality for minimal to no money.
You can do it BUT if you are going to do it then you have to give it everything. You have to commit to it. There are a lot of people that have started podcasts that do 6 episodes and quit. If you’re going to take the time to set this up and go through the motions then I suggest setting a minimum bar for yourself. Do at least 20 episodes and call it “Season One” or something like that. Then, sit and reassess and make sure this is something you want to commit to further. If you get past that, you’re golden!
I hope you enjoy some of my insight into podcasting and what I have learned through my experience of trial and error and figuring it out along the way. The views expressed in this ebook are my own and from over two years of being in the trenches and knocking out episodes almost weekly. I hope you get as much enjoyment out of reading as I did of writing and sharing.
Hi, I’m Colin. I am a former professional golfer, turned entrepreneur. I am passionate about inspiring others by sharing real stories.
After my short athletic career, I found myself at a crossroad. Actually, more like I found myself at a dead end. My whole life was dedicated to one thing, golf! I had a dream to play on the PGA Tour, teeing it up next to Tiger Woods, Sunday at the Masters. So, when that dream was not realized, I had to hit the restart button on my life.
After numerous failed business idea, including, attempts to start an online golf business, car dealership, online Shopify store, and an attempt to become an international real estate agent, I realized, I needed serious help!
So, I turned to my father Paul Morgan. Paul had his own business writing business plans and helping others start successful businesses. So, with my tail between my legs, I went to my father and asked for help. I actually started working with him and it was there I realized, I wasn’t the only one struggling to start a business. Others were trying to create their dream life, and others were failing. I was confused, I thought, “there had to be a missing link.”
So, I started on my journey of personal development. I read books, bought programs, listened to podcasts, all in an attempt to figure out the missing link. What were I and others doing wrong?
One day I came across, EOFIRE and my life literally changed in an instant. I thought, how genius it was to interview and learn from other successful people! If I could do that, I could ask all the questions I wanted to ask but couldn’t. Hence, the beginning of The Daily Grind Business Podcast.
But, that is just the start.
After about 200 interviews, I was hearing some common advice. Find mentors, “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”, ask for help, and create winning habits.
I kept hearing this voice, one step at a time, keep moving forward. I boiled it down to 1 THING, “PROGRESS”. The secret to happiness is to make progress every single day, no matter how small the step, as long as we continue to make progress, we can start to change our circumstance.
So, that became my mission, to help others make continual progress through the practice of daily behaviors.
If this is resonating with you, you probably want to stick around, check out the show, and even check out my Inner Circle Group. I am looking forward to helping you as others helped me, create the life I could only dream of.
Episode 91 features Founder and CEO of the Conversationalist, Sophie Beren. This wide-ranging conversation gets into some depths around overcoming fear, mental health, difficult conversations, self-awareness, and much more.

While at The University of Pennsylvania (C’17, SPP’17), Sophie founded TableTalk, a multi-campus nonprofit that empowers young adults on college and high school campuses to have conversations that matter. She recently launched her new business called The Conversationalist to take the TableTalk concept to the next level.

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.
See below on a lot of random notes and links about Neil and from the show…
My name is Neil Pasricha and I think, write, and speak about living intentionally.
All of my current work focuses under the themes of gratitude, happiness, failure, resilience, and trust.
I’m the the author of six books including: The Book of Awesome, a spinning rolodex of simple pleasures based on my 100-million-hit, award-winning blog 1000 Awesome Things, The Happiness Equation, originally written as a 300-page love letter to my unborn son on how to live a happy life, Awesome Is Everywhere, an interactive introduction to guided meditation for children, and How To Get Back Up, a memoir of failure and resilience released as an Audible Original. My books are New York Times and #1 international bestsellers and have sold millions of copies across dozens of languages.
On this episode of the One Mic series I start the conversation around Sales especially as it relates to people who have never had to “sell” before. This idea was originated from a great conversation I had up at the Next Gen Summit in NYC this past weekend. A lot of Start-up Founders have many talents and skills but one of the challenges a lot have is actually understand sales and the sales process of pitching VC’s, selling their first clients, etc.
I’m going to turn this into a multi-part series but wanted to give a taste of how I look at Sales and what has helped me become successful in the world of Sales.

EPISODE 53: Co-Founder & CEO, Million Dollar Scholar
ALSO AVAILABLE ON THESE PLATFORMS
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.
Some sites Derrius suggests to check out for Scholarships:
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.
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 alternativelifestyle 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.
Episode 51 features Erin Dimond, Fitness Professional and Founder of Erin Dimond Fitness. Erin is also the Co-Host of the Flow State of Mind Podcast with Jordan Dugger https://www.instagram.com/duggaesthetics/
Erin’s journey is a tremendous one for all entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, or any ‘preneurs out there. She took a personal challenge of running a half-marathon back in college and turned that into competing at fitness competitions and starting her own fitness coaching business. We talk through her journey, advice for business owners, and much more!
Episode 50 was a blast to be speaking with Certified Executive Coach, Jackie Serviss. 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. It’s all come full circle and now she is helping other individuals see their potential and perform at their best.
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.

EPISODE 48: Founder, Be Au Sm | Evangelist @ Dude Solutions
ALSO AVAILABLE ON THESE PLATFORMS
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.
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”.
