One Step at a Time: How to Think Big Yet Focus on What We Can Control with Ya’el Johnson (AoL 186)

Believe it or not, but there's a lot of people in this world who are afraid to think big. The reason for this is pretty simple... at least to them. Why think of making a huge impact when you can't even get your own life straight?

What I've learned is that having big goals and dreams actually helps one deal with the now. If we have a worthwhile goal, it allows us to prioritize it. And that, allows us to not prioritize what's good now... or at least the actions that might self sabotage us in the long run. In other words, if you have an elephant to eat, that's how you eat it - one bite at a time.

In this session with friend of the show, with the newly married Ya'el Johnson, Andy and I chat with her about what she's learned about life and success as she's taken control over her own life and destiny. This is a great lesson if you're new to the self development world, but also a great reminder for those of us who might feel down due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19.

It's said that college can either teach you what to think or how to think. And in my case, I'd like to believe that it taught me how to think. But looking back, especially this past year, I've realized when it comes to creative thinking, my Purdue career might have failed me. Not because I didn't get anything out of it. I did. However, when I got out of grad school, I found myself trying to build staircases out of information.

That's just not how the world works. Especially when you're trying to start or restart a business.

In fact, when you're learning something new, using a circular or global way of learning to connect the dots might make more sense to utilize than a linear model.

In this session with Emmy award winning documentarian Lois Stark, Veronica and I chat with her about what what she's learned about shapes and patterns in nature, and how those relate to our ability to think now and in the future.

There's a lot to be said when it comes to having a personal breakthrough. In fact, having one might just change the rest of your life. However, when it comes to having a breakthrough through an identity shift, what does that actually mean? Shouldn't a breakthrough come before having a change of identity?

Interestingly, according to today's guest, Rob Scott, you can find a way to change your perspective on who you are and how the world influences you. Not only that, but when you do, the world can become a much more friendly and/or productive place.

In this session, Andy and I chat with Rob about how he could have had all the reasons to be a failure at life, but instead used identity shifting techniques to become the person he is today.

When you're starting anything in the business world, it's a really good idea to know who your target audience (or avatar) is. Some businesses might have many options, while most actually have a handful or less.

Generally speaking, when you're starting a podcast, it's no different. Sure, there's a few podcasts out there that practically anyone can listen to, but for the most part, shows need to be tailored to the audience. This is especially true if the host isn't well known.

When this session's guest, Joe Sanok, started his podcast, not many people knew who he was outside of his therapy work. However, with a podcast name of Practice of the Practice, it only makes sense that people who were looking to build their private practice would find his show.

In this session, Veronica and I chat with Joe about the importance of knowing your audience and successfully building a brand around their needs.

When it comes to the stock market, the most knowledge people typically have is letting someone else manage their portfolio. Robert Kiyosaki strongly urges people not to do this because, generally speaking, those that do manage other people's money do so in whatever way they can earn the most commission. So, where does someone look if they're interested in finding out more about day trading for beginners?

For me, this has been an answer I've not been able to find a solution to for the entirety of this show. We've had plenty of guests who have built their businesses in the B quadrant, and we've had several reality stars who have built a great portfolio in the I quadrant. However, we've never had an expert on whose focus is helping those who want to build wealth through paper assets.

Until now.

More often than not, people generally build an S quadrant business, scale it through the B quadrant, and then take their profits and buy assets in the I quadrant.

However, there's no rule that says you can't start slowly in the I quadrant and then build a business helping others do the same in the B quadrant. In this session Andy and I learn how our guest Jason Brown ended up doing just that with The Brown Report and Power Trades University.

On the show, we've asked several of ours guests a particular question when we know they've had the answer. And that question is simply this "How did you get on TV?"

Interestingly, there's been a few different answers. But the one thing which was common between all of them was that they had a compelling story. The other part was that they networked into the spot.

Now, I get what that means. It means that you either found someone you knew who knew the person you were trying to connect with. Or, you randomly connected with someone who could get you on. One's a little more intentional, however, both have the same result.

However, what if you don't know where to start in doing that? Sure, there's courses that can teach you how to network with the right people. But wouldn't it be easier if you could just reach out to someone who could help?

If you believe you're looking for that kind of person, then today's guest is someone you should connect with.

Sabrina Santucci has the network and the skillset to help you on local TV and potentially help you go national. As she says, there's different strategies for each.

Listen in as Veronica and I learn more about the key things we need to keep in mind as we look to get on TV.

For a lot of business owners, the pandemic has cost them their livelihood. For example, Yelp! recently shared that 55% of the businesses using their platform which closed down due to the pandemic aren't coming back. What's a business team to do when you're looking at those kinds of numbers? How can you avoid having to close down?

The answer, I believe, is all about being able to make a pivot. And this is something we've been discussing in great detail on the show.

Unfortunately, for some business teams, pivoting might not be too obvious. Sure, curb service and delivery for some restaurants makes sense, but what if your restaurant wasn't so much a restaurant, but a bar? What if you're reliant on a market that's not doing so great right now such as realty?

Today's guest, Dirk van Reenen, excels at helping teams focus on the foundations of business and how they scale their businesses in ways that they might not have noticed before. In fact, with the future looking like things will be changing faster and faster, it's important that all businesses know how to quickly pivot.

So what does that look like? Well, the first thing is all about building the right team - and that's where today's conversation takes us.

Listen in as Andy and I learn more about Dirk's business BERGflow and how it might benefit those of us going through or preparing to go through a hard time.

Today, more than ever, videos play a large part in social media marketing. If you have a goal of becoming a social influencer, there's a pretty good chance you'll need to know how to not only make but produce good quality content to attract people to be part of your audience.

Here's the catch, though. Not all business owners want to be social influencers. In fact, many business owners might prefer to stay out of that particular limelight because they feel that it would take even more time to make that extra content. Time they could be spending doing what works and less experimenting with new content.

So how does someone who prefers to work their craft and/or work 1 on 1 with their clients, find the time to create and edit this new content?

Well, truth is, they need to bring in someone who has a proven process to attract the right type of audience.

Our guest, Rohan Kale, fits the bill. Personally, I call him more of a social media marketing architect. Not only does he has the process down, but like an architect, hires out the in person work to local videographers.

It's a really fascinating business model.

In this session, Andy and I learn how he got started in business and what about his approach makes his process a winner today and in the future.

When we have the discussion about achievement and having greater success, many times we go straight to tactics and tools as the answer. Or, if we know better, maybe we'll take a look at our vision and mission and see if it needs to be tweaked a bit.

One thing we often skip over, however, is our mindset. As we've been learning in the show recently, mindsets can be seen as the lenses we see the world in. And there's a lot of talk about going from negative mindsets to more positive alternatives.

Most of the time, though, this has been a bit of nebulous concept. Especially, when we don't know where we're currently at and how we can improve from there.

However, in this session, our goal is to bring that conversation down to reality a bit.

Our guest, Dr. Ryan Gottfredson, has spent over five years looking at the knowledge and data on what it means to go from good to great when it comes to mindsets. And what he's found is that mindsets can actually be quantifiable.

Through his assessment and book, Success Mindsets, we have a way to find out where we're at in our positive and negative mindsets and have a plan to move all our

If you've been searching for an assessment to help you get more clarity on where you should go in your self development journey, this is a great place to start.

During the civil unrest of 2020, there's been a lot of talk about how to create safe neighborhoods for everyone. However, this isn't a new topic by any means. In fact, it's an issue that many cities have been dealing with for a number of decades.

For example, here in Indianapolis, we're way ahead of the curve when it comes to homicides for the year. It's only June and we have had over 100 people killed. This curve has been rising year after year.

Add to that the frustration people have with law enforcement and the systems in place for their accountability, and it only makes sense that there's protests.

However, where many people draw the line is when those protests turn to violence. When protests turn to riots, that's where the message starts getting lost.

So, if people want to make a change for the better, wouldn't it make sense that they do so in non-threatening manner?

This session's guest, Commander Dale Brown of the Threat Management Center in Detroit, MI, believes that's the case. On top of this, through his experience of over 25 years, he also believes that when people know a bit about self protection, crime in neighborhoods tends to go down.

In this session, Veronica and I learn why this is the case, and what society can do to erase the man made construct of race all together.

If you're a peace loving individual and have wanted to have your voice heard, then perhaps Dale's message is for you.
