In the last session, I brought up the books Key Person of Influence and OverSubscribed both written by Daniel Priestley. And, as I've been telling people in my day to day life, I think these books are as vital to someone's success as an entrepreneur as Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The E-Myth Revisited are. Sure, you can go without reading any of these books... but I highly suggest you don't pass them over.

For the longest time, today's guest might have been considered the Ultimate Warrior of Solopreneurship. In fact, for much of its history, Smart Passive Income (SPI) featured Pat Flynn as the Crash Test Dummy of Online Business. And if he could start a six figure passive income business on his own, anyone could.

But here's the thing. For several years now, he's been part of a team. Sure, he's been the head of creative at SPI, but he's been part of a team.

And I have to admit, when that transition happened out of the blue, I (and I'm sure plenty of others) felt left behind.

Here we were, brought to believe that we could build that online business like Pat by being a dedicated army of one.

But as you'll hear, when he joined forces with Matt Garland and his team, things completely changed - not only in his business, but in his life as well.

Listen in as Veronica and I close out season 5 of the AoL Podcast with Pat as he shares with us his journey of leaving the legend of the great solopreneur behind to join his own team of Avengers.

I'm pretty sure you'll be glad you did. I think it's a lesson we all have to hear.

Enjoy!

A couple of books I've been reading recently are essentially about finding inner peace as a business owner. One is called Key Person of Influence, and the other is called OverSubscribed both by Daniel Priestley. One's about becoming someone who creates opportunities in life through relationships while the other is about making you and your brand something so desired that there's a waiting list. How are they about inner peace? Well, both of them are books essentially about anti-hustle. They're books about working smarter, not harder. (They're also both available on Scribed).

So many of us are used to working harder in our lives that we forget the price that we pay to do so.

I know I have. And I've realized that pushing the capacity of myself wasn't really getting me further along. In fact, it was ruining not only my relationships but also my own physical wellbeing.

I first started on this path of discovery when I met this session's guest, Kira Leskew in the summer of 2020. And while I was still trying to figure out what my next steps were, I was also trying to carry on all the other things that I was already doing.

After working with her for a few months to learn about Pranayama last fall, I have continued to use it and other tools to get the weight of the world off my shoulders.

I've realized (and I continue to realize) people who get to where many of us want to be - they don't overwork themselves. In fact, according to Key Person of Influence, they do just the opposite.

In this episode, and as we close out season 5, I wanted to have Kira on to share with you some of the insight I've learned during this Pandemic stricken year. It really did allow me to slow down so I could speed up.

Listen in as she shares with us some of her thoughts on anti-hustle, being present, and keeping yourself from burning out.

One of the things I've learned in the last 10 years (and even more so since the start of the pandemic) is many of us, including myself at times, ask if we're worthy enough to level up and start living our dream. Scratch that - OUR DREAMS.

See, here's the thing. Society has told us what's important and that's the magic dollar bill. How you get it is secondary to actually getting it. Because so many people focus on the end destination (which, hint... there is no end destination), it really doesn't matter how you get the result.

However, what I've learned along the way is that if you can tap into your true self and do work that has meaning to you and/or you finding fascinating, then the sky's the limit.

That was true for this session's guest, Jerome Myers.

As he tells it in this chat, while he was in college he realized that there are easier ways to earn income than trading time for money. In particular, he learned that multi-family housing can be particularly lucrative.

More so, he realized that when he "figured it out" that others need to know how to get free from the Matrix and live their dreams as well.

Listen in as he shares with us some of his thoughts on steps to finding our true selves and how we can make sure we don't live a nightmare of constantly trying to do it with little luck.

Often when we think about making millions of dollars, they think of three things. Primarily those things include building a business to a particular revenue level, creating a portfolio of real estate, or getting lucky in the stock market. That last one has always been something that I've struggled to believe - that you had to have luck to find the right top stock picks.

Back in session 182, we learned from Jason Brown that it's possible to create a predictable revenue stream from stocks. So after hearing that, I did a bit of research. What I came up with was a subscription the Rich Dad Newsletter... but unfortunately, it was simply a way for his publishing company to make $250 off of me while upselling other solutions.

It was frustrating to the say the least.

However, it wasn't much longer before I met today's guest, Sean Tepper, and my paradigm started to shift.

In today's chat, Sean shares with us how he created a platform called TYKR out of a need to develop his own passive income stream. In it we learn that being an angel investor isn't everything it's cracked up to be. And we also hear how, with the use of the platform itself, how we can all build passive income through the magic of compound interest.

For a good majority of the population, online presentations can be a drag. Reason why is that most people are simply new to doing online business. They simply haven't heard all the tips and tactics which have been discussed in the digital marketing space for the last 10+ years.

As of 2020, though, the game has changed. And just like how Facebook was once a place for college students to get together and discuss school and their favorite professors, things have changed for Zoom as well. What was once a platform utilized mainly by podcasters and tech savvy businesses, everyone and their brother is using the platform.

However, that doesn't mean that they're doing a great job doing so. In fact, poor presentation skills is nothing new. It's just now being done in a widely used setting.

So in this conversation with our guest, Rich Mulholland, we find out how he's not only been able to help people get better at presentations themselves, but why so many business owners fail to take their business to the next level.

It was very interesting and unexpected to Andy and I how these very different topics actually are related.

When it comes to my work here at New Inceptions, one of the most often asked questions I've received is "JC, how did you find your why?" 10 years ago, I wouldn't have really known what they were talking about. I hadn't really thought about my motivators in life. Sure, I had thought about my personality and what I was naturally attracted to doing, but not what actually goes behind that thinking.

In fact, when I first heard Simon Sinek's "Start with Why" presentation, it made since how he was relating it to companies, but it hadn't really clicked for me how it related to people. That wouldn't be until later. However, someone it did click with at the personal level was the founder of the Why Institute, Gary Sanchez.

In this chat, Gary's right hand man, Dan Dominguez shares with us in his own words where he was when he stumbled upon Gary's work and how Gary actually put the work together.

More specifically we'll learn how Dan is now living his best life due to the work Gary has done as founder of the Why Institute.

If you're still struggling to figure out your own Why, perhaps getting some time with Dan might be in your not too distant future?

In 2020, using Zoom has become commonplace for businesses and schools alike. Since so many people have become familiar with the platform, it only makes sense that there are ways we should or shouldn't use the platform. Whether you're a business leader, a member of a nonprofit, or a teacher, no one wants to attend a zoom meeting where the presenters aren't engaging.

In this session of the show, Andy and I have the opportunity to speak with someone who has made it his mission to help others harness the power of the virtual stage.

More specifically, the Trigger, Rich Bontrager, coaches his clients to be better presenters through time proven broadcasting techniques.

In this conversion, we explore why his approach makes such a big difference when you're trying to seperate yourself from the pack in virtual presentations.

When you're introduced to somethings, you either can go slow or fast. Examples of learning something slow might include many sports and school activities such as multiplication, reading, and writing. You get the idea. Other times you have to go fast - like learning how to ride a bike. When it comes to entrepreneurship, and teaching others, you can do it quickly and risk blowing their minds. Or you can go slow and try to recreate how you might have learned. Unfortunately for people who marry an entrepreneur, they often times don't get the chance to learn slow.

For me and Maria, I tried to keep her process relatively slow so that it wouldn't get too nuts. However, as soon as we got married, I had her listening to podcasts and watching courses right away. Eventually getting her interested in what things she wanted to do outside of her day job. I could have gone quicker than that. I know that one of my best friends from school, Ben, got his now wife, Megan, to go to an LTD open meeting for their second date. She got to know the business more than she got to know him! Yikes. Talk about a steep learning curve!

Similarly, one of today's guests got the other to go to a business conference early on their dating life as well. As she eludes to in the podcast, he meant business! Francielle Daly quickly realized that Brian was for real and that being with him would mean things would change in her life. And boy did they ever. Now she's running her own site and coaching others with him. All in the matter of a couple of years. In today's session, we talk about what that transformation looked like and the ride they have taken together to this point in their solopreneur careers.

Self sabotaging behavior is a common theme when it comes to personal and business development (or the lack thereof). Whether it's the lack of willpower to get healthier, the determination it takes to go through college, or the focus it takes to build one's business, there's one thing that is certain when it comes to accomplishment: setting a goal is one thing - but actually achieving that goal is something completely different.

In this session of the show, Ya'el Johnson and I get to talk to two completely different kinds of individuals who have made it their passion to help others figure out how to achieve goals like this.

Through their app called the Consistency Chain, they're helping tons of people build good habits in place of the ones that have lead them to where they are now.

In their recent book built on the same premise, The Consistency Chain for Network Marketing, authors George Campbell & Jim Packard suggest that the main reason that people don't do well with network marketing is that they simply haven't built the right habits to actually grow their business. In fact, George goes on to say that he was only successful when he realized he was the common denominator between all these opportunities.

In this conversion, we explore how they came to that conclusion and some of the concepts one should consider when trying to achieve anything in this world - let alone building a network marketing business!

As we're getting started in this second year of potentially a two or three year pandemic "clean up" plan, there's going to be plenty of time for us to really adjust and think about where we fit in the world. It's a great time to develop our skills for success.

What do I mean by that?

Well, it's a forced transition period for all of us. What might have been our identity in the past, might not work in the PAE.

That said, one group of individuals who all have to go through this major life change sometime in their career are professional athletes. Like our guest, Desmond "Dez" Clark says, if your identity was wrapped up into your job (as an athlete), you're going to have issues when you can't do that job anymore.

Luckily for Dez, he knew who he was before his career as a professional athlete. So when he finished up, yes, there was a transition period, but he was the same Dez who used the game as a means to get what he wanted.

In this chat with him, Ya'el and I learn a little bit of what he's learned over the years through these transitions and how he's been able to stay the course during his life using those experiences.

Enjoy!
