If you've ever read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, you probably know that the author, Robert Kiyosaki gained his wealth in Real Estate Investing (REI). Since the release and rise of popularity of the book, there's been all kinds of methods revealed to the general public about how to make passive income.

There are two passive income quadrants: Investing (I) and Business (B).

When it comes to passive income, we're usually thinking of the B quadrant. For example, most of us are familiar with the thought leader approach. They create content, develop a tribe, and provide services or products to that tribe to help them achieve more. The larger the tribe, the more potential one has of making a good income.

Yet others might be more familiar with drop shipping through eBay or Amazon. Pretty much the same idea, but instead of developing your own tribe, you sell to the customers on those sites. Because of that, you have to share a percentage of what you earn with the company.

A hybrid of both of these is using Facebook ads to get your name out there to Facebook users so that they can convert in your sales funnel.

Again, these are examples of the B quadrant of passive income.

As for the I quadrant, it tends to stay off limits to most people who are seeking passive income.

Mainly because most people think that to work in that quadrant, we have to have money available to invest.

Truth is, that's not necessarily the case.

In fact, today's guest, Chris Prefontaine, has one of the coolest systems I've seen to help people develop wealth in the I quadrant.

In this session of the AoL Podcast, Veronica and I learn how it's indeed possible to build a passive income portfolio without using money from banks or our own pocket.

Having the knowledge about different personalities is a bit of a super power. When you know someone's personality and personal motivation, you can understand what makes them tick. However, a lot of people simply don't have this knowledge. They get frustrated when other people don't act the way they do or don't set an importance on various things like they do.

Today's guest, Andy Dix, helps individuals and teams figure out what motivates them through the Reiss Motivation Profile.

As a leader, it's important that not only do we know the makeup of any one person, but we also understand how others are going to engage with them.

If you don't have much knowledge about how personalities and motivations work, this is a great conversation to start at!

So, join Harrison and I as we learn why Andy chose to work in this field, what he's learned, and why he started his The Hopeful Hoosier Podcast.

Life has a way of making us rethink the actions we're taking. Whether it's in school or on the job, in life, or even while we're working on our business. That's where the saying "When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade!" comes from. Because it's when we have these obstacles in our life, we often wonder if we're doing the right thing. We wonder if maybe the universe is trying to tell us something.

This is why knowing who we are, what our strengths are, and how we can help others is so vital to our success. It's because we know how we fit in the world, that we're able to justify doing the work we're meant to do - even when it gets hard and we're given reasons to not do it.

In this conversation with today's guest, Kim Trathen, we learn about all the things she had to go through as she was developing her business in 2018. She had plenty of reasons to put her blossoming business on the back burner. However, because she knew what she was good at and how she could help others, it gave her the strength to keep pushing forward.

So join Veronica and I was we talk with Kim about this journey of hers and how you can apply it to your own life and business.

Back in session 55, Laila and I had the opportunity to pick the brain of Summer Edwards. Outside of Veronica (who was still running her tech company), she was the first entrepreneur I had on the show who we could label as a social entrepreneur. This type of entrepreneur is someone who not only creates a business, but that business could be called a social venture - a business that has a social mission empowering it.

Since then, I've met all kinds of social entrepreneurs and they all have one thing in common. They're creating something by themselves or with others that not only affects a large amount of people in a positive way, but is sustainable.

Traditionally when many nonprofits start out, they do so thinking that they'll be funded by governmental grants or strictly through donations and fundraising. However, they tend to leave one concept on the table - partnering with companies who care about their cause.

In this session, we find out about a company which not only offers a great service through their membership, but has a passion in feeding people around the world. Obviously, they can't do the work themselves, so that's where a nonprofit who is already doing that comes into play.

It's a win-win for both organizations.

So join me as I speak with one of the founders of LVRG, Cam Martinez, and learn more about his journey as a young entrepreneur and where this great idea came from.

As we learned in session 149 with the Shohawk Media founders, the film world can be amazing experience. But one thing is clear: it's vital that as a filmmaker you take advantage of the right opportunities to get ahead and get things done. This includes properly funding your production, going to film festivals, and knowing the inner workings of film distribution.

For many new filmmakers, these things can seem overwhelming. Many questions come up. How will I fund this project? How will I find the right people to partner with to get it done? When it is done, how will I get it out to the masses?

Today's guest is someone that has the chance to get to know the film industry inside and out. With 30+ years of experience, Ray Murphy has seen it all. From starting off in security to becoming a producer to now helping with distribution, he can help those projects that won't get the time of day from the big studios.

In this conversation with Ray, we talk about that journey of his.

Not only is he a great resource for young and veterened filmmakers alike, but he does a great job of shining the light on parts of the industry outsiders, like myself, might not understand.

If you've been following the show for awhile, you're probably aware that I'm a big fan of Fizzle. Personally, I think they're one of the best sources I've seen out there for the lifestyle entrepreneur.

Why?

Well, there's a couple of reasons for that. For one, their library of courses available to their members are geared for those who need an Entrepreneurship 101 or 201 course. They cover all the fundamentals.

But that's not all that's there.

In fact, the creators joke with the idea that people come for the courses, but stay for the community.

Which is so true. In fact, I'm still interacting with several people I met on there 4 years ago. Including Veronica.

In today's interview with co-founder of Fizzle, Corbett Barr, Veronica and I talk to Corbett about the founding of Fizzle and what he thinks about the online entrepreneurial space 10 years after he started his first blog Think Traffic.

It's my hope that you get a bit of an understanding of why Veronica and I both believe Fizzle is such a great resource.

AoL 149: Generation Freedom: Telling the Story of Online Entrepreneurs & Internet Business with Michael Hall and Chris Sakr

May 23, 2019

Full show notes: newinceptions.com/149

For many, internet business is something that is pretty simple to understand. Create a digital product or service, get a couple of clients, and then scale. If done right, you can build yourself a great lifestyle.

The problem, however, is that the majority of the population doesn't know that this opportunity is available. In fact, your own family or friends might still wonder about "that thing that you're doing".

Today's subject and interview might just help people you know get a grasp on that thing.

In the documentary Generation Freedom, creators Michael Hall and Chris Sakr give us an overview of what it means to be an online entrepreneur.

Does it look entirely the same for everyone? Of course not. But there are certain ideas and concepts that we all have to know to comprehend the true powers of internet business.

In this chat, Harrison and I have the opportunity to chat with Michael and Chris and find out more about why they made the documentary, how they made it, and why they started filmmaking in the first place.

Body image can be a heck of a limiting belief. If you're a creative who wants to be on stage, you might believe if you're out of shape that you should be in shape before getting up there. Or, if you're slim, you might think you need to get some muscles and size to you so you appear more confident.

In the world of athletics, body image plays a role too.

Maybe even more so.

A lot of athletes believe that if they're going to stay at peak performance, that they need to control not only practice what they're doing with their bodies, but what goes into them.

That's fine. However, just like so many things, it can become a problem if taken too far.

In this interview, Veronica and I talk with former All-American athlete turned author Rachael Steil about her journey.

We find out what caused her to reach out for help and why she's taking what she's learned out to others.

 

If you find yourself obsessing about food and nutrition to an unhealthy extent, then this talk is for you.

To be consistent. It's a phrase that's thrown around in all kinds of industries as a part of their success. But what does it mean? If you own an agency that relies on you to get the job done, then you have to show up everyday. If you own a website that sells certain products, then there's a good chance you'll need to go to various events to let potential customers that your site exists. If you're trying to build a personal brand on social media - then you're going to have to commit to building that brand and showing up daily.

So, that being the case, consistency can come in different forms. It's really dependent on what you want the end goal to be.

However, if you really want to shoot for the stars in the online entrepreneurial space, then today's guest is some you'll appreciate.

In this session, Tony Whatley, speaks to Veronica and I about what it took for him to not only build a company outside of his day job, but to also sell that company. We also touch on the kind of work it's taking for him to build his own personal brand online.

Join us as we pick the brain of the Side Hustle Millionaire!

Having success in work you love doing can take awhile to actually happen. There's certainly a Gap we all have to cross. In that Gap, we tend to ask ourselves different questions ranging from "Why am I still struggling?" to "Should I give up and do what I know I could get paid better for but not like to do as much?" to even "Why am I having so much trouble growing my audience?".

I know I've had these questions, myself.

In this session, our guest, Sagi Shrieber, talks to Veronica and I about his career in design and how he was fairly successful right out of graduation. But after awhile, he found himself at a point in his life where he was $50k in debt and still having to support a family.

In our conversation, we learn what he did to start climbing out of this funk as well as why he spent over $70k in improving himself in 2018.
