In this edition of the AoL Podcast, we continuing our in depth look at motivation and what drives people to step out and embrace who they are. In the previous session with Chris Jordan, Chris told us about his life changing turning point and how being a man of Faith has allowed him to live a more fulfilling lifestyle and be a better person.
In contrast, today's guest is someone who's actually motivated to be a better version of himself through Natural Laws he's learned about in the personal development field.
Join Harrison and I as we talk with the host of the Beyond Homosapien podcast, Paul Tokgozoglu. In this chat he'll share how practicing laws such as the Law of Attraction have continually improved his outlook on life and his engagement with those around him.
On top of this, we'll also be looking into what we should be expecting when it comes to the changes in work people do in the not too distant future.

There are many reasons why people become a reanimated creator. Sometimes, they simply see a void in an industry that they're already in and think they can do a better job than the company they're at. Sometimes, a person is laid off and uses the skill that they are professionally known for to make a living on their own. However, there are other times where someone is called to do what they know they're meant to do. They have an internal pull to go a different way than they have their entire career.
For today's guest, that last one description is definitely the case. After a life altering experience, Chris Jordan realized that God had given him a new personal mission. That mission was to empower others to work and live with more confidence and meaning as well.
In this conversation, Harrison and I get to learn how this experience went down and how it's motivated him to not only start his own company but become a local President of Toastmasters as well as the director of the region.
If you feel that you're being called to do more meaningful work and don't know if it's the right choice, let Chris' story inspire you to live in Truth.

Social media, it's an interesting tool. Most of the world looks at it as a distraction or a way to share with family and friends. However, those of us who are in the entrepreneurial / creative space - we see it as a little bit more than that. Sure, we like to let people know what we're up to, but we also like to share our projects and/or our message.
If you're good at digital marketing, you'll have no problem blending in your personal posts with your business posts. If your business is part of your personal mission, then it's even easier.
Today's guest, Avi Arya, is all about helping companies reach out and connect to native social media users. He travels the world not only as a speaker, but as a consultant.
However, this doesn't define him. This is simply the work he does.
When he's not traveling around the world, he spends as much time as he can with his family, dogs, and doing the things he really enjoys doing.
The key is this: He works to live, not live to work.
In this installment of the AoL Podcast, listen as we talk about how he rose to the the top of the industry, some of the mistakes that new marketers make, and his perspective on work/life balance.

As creatives go, it's always nice to meet other people who are on your wavelength. That's one of the great things about doing interviews is that it gives you a reason to meet people.
Whether that's in audio or video form, doing interviews not only gives you this opportunity, but it allows you to have a platform that you define while at the same time sharing it with someone else.
Through his efforts, Engel Jones, has become a master of making connections and sharing his platform. Through over 2000 conversations in the last couple of years, he's connected with amazing people at all levels.
On top of this, last year he and his wife went on a tour of the United States to talk to many of these people (again) and have an in person conversation with them.
In this conversation, find out in his own words why he started his podcast and what he's learned along the way.

One of the reasons many people become self employed is because they believe they can have more freedom working for themselves. Whether that's more time for family or the ability to dictate what they do in a given day - they're looking for more autonomy. However, as we get more and more successful, we have a decision to make. Do we want to scale up and bring more onto our team or stay at the level we're at because that's our sweet spot? It's really hard to fight the urge to scale up - especially if part of the way that you measure success is through an increase in income and the ability to buy bigger and better things. But what if finances didn't enter into the equation of success? What if it stayed at what was important to us at the beginning - to do what we want when we want? Not to be pressured by keeping up societal norms - but to spend time with those we care about and/or traveling? This is the life that today's guest Jared Latigo has crafted for himself and his family. Listen in as he explains how he got here and more about his life after debt. Enjoy!

To succeed in life we're all going to have obstacles get in our way. Sometimes it'll be people telling us we can't do something. Other times it might be a lack of knowledge about a certain topic. Today's guest, Kristian Aleixo, is all about taking obstacles head on. However, he looks at them as challenges. And while he might not necessarily have the solution to dealing with the challenge right away, he doesn't make any excuses and makes it his mission to figure it out. This attitude is helped him in his career as a race car driver. And because of his resilience, he's looking to become an IndyCar racer in the next couple of years. In this session, we hope that you're inspired to learn how to appreciate challenges. Because once you conquer them, you can use them as part of your story in helping others!

When it comes to your everyday classroom teacher, a lot of them feel like their hands are tied in a similar fashion.
They're not allowed to teach the way that they believe they should.
Because of this, the average time that someone works in the public education system as a classroom teacher is 3 years.
This is a horrible statistic.
That said, students are paying for this lack of competency just as much as teachers are.
It's producing people who simply aren't ready for life and the real world.
In this session, I talk with author, speaker, and teacher Daniel Blanchard about what's causing this and what can be done about it.

When scaling a business, there's many options that an owner or CEO can take.
A lot of times, especially for brick and mortar companies, one of the first things that they'll consider is growing their company internationally.
However, if they don't consider the culture they're moving into, their effort is certainly going to have issues.
This is where today's guest, Angel Ribo, comes in to help.
Having helped well over a thousand CEO's during his career, he works on helping companies find ways to benefit the countries that they're considering moving into.
On top of this, he also has a foundation geared towards poverty stricken kids in Latin America called Wisdom for Kids.
As you'll hear in the conversation, teaching kids how to be entrepreneurs with the resources around them is a great way to help dilute the effect of poverty around the world.
Join Harrison and I as we talk with Angel about helping others find a higher purpose!

When someone hits rock bottom, they usually have a choice to make. One, they can blame everyone but themselves for what has happened to them. Many times this prevents people from moving on from where they're at.
They can then choose to make the other choice. They can realize that they're actually the one in control of where they're at and make it their mission to get out of that situation and never come back.
The term "rock bottom" is a relative term. Rock bottom for one person can be quite different than rock bottom for someone else.
For some people, a simple habit change can be enough to help them get out of their situation. But on the other hand, the person might need a complete mindset overhaul.
For today's guest, he was more of the latter. After being homeless through the ages of 6 to 16, he thought his only way to get ahead was to excel at football. When an injury killed his chances to get a scholarship, he felt stuck. Luckily, a mentor stepped up and taught him that he had a gift of communication.
Ever since then, he's been on a mission to develop this gift. Doing so has given him opportunities he might not have ever considered as an athlete.
Join Harrison and me as we talk with Rev. Antonio Smith Jr. about this transition and how others can make a positive impact in their community!

Anyone that has had a significant amount of success in their lives have probably done a fair amount of listening to those who have had more experience.
When you're thinking about sports, for example, there's no team that has been successful without having coaches and a front office who perform well at their jobs.
Likewise, in business and in the self-help world, it's good practice to take advice from people who have been where you're wanting to go.
Today's guest, is all about enabling people to get out of their own way and be more successful. He does this through his podcast, on stage, and through his book "Going North!".
His name is Dominique Brightmon and in today's conversation we chat about the importance of mentorship and all he's learned as a 20-something entrepreneurial educator.
