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.

The best things in my life have happened because I've stepped out of my comfort zone. Whether this was starting in band when I was in junior high, going to college, or stepping out to ask Maria on a date, good things happen when you take chances. Sure, sometimes things go south and don't work out the way you would have liked, but you never know until you get started.
Case in point, today's guest, Jordan Harbinger, started his podcast way before they were considered "popular". Sure you could download them on iTunes, but when he heard that people were going to be able to listen to them easier with the release of the iPhone, he knew he had to jump on the wave.
His first show, Art of Charm, was where I got to know him. And as his content matured, I felt myself maturing with it.
Today he finds himself on his own platform where he and his team work (including his wife Jen and his producer Jason) to put out The Jordan Harbinger Show 3 times a week. (As they say in Letterkenny - Must be nice!)
In this conversation, Harrison and I get the chance to find out more about the various transitions in his career and why it's necessary at times to move on to something new.

When starting a business, many people make building their business as complicated as improving themselves. The thing is that if you have a good business idea, it shouldn't be all that complicated to get results. In fact, there are still plenty of multimillionaires out there that haven't used social media to get their message out there.
That said, you should always be improving yourself. If you're not, then you're automatically going backward.
These concepts are examples which I learned from my Amway group, LTD, back in 2006. While I'm no longer active in the business, I can say that I learned a ton of great fundamentals there.
Likewise, today's guests, Alex and Sarah Dumas, learned quite a bit from their days of being in the MLM (multi-level marketing)/direct sales as well. However, not all of it was awesome.
In fact, in this conversation, you'll hear them talk about how much of what is taught today in MLM's is only part of the story. And more interestingly, much of what's taught to entrepreneurs as a whole - especially hustling 24/7 - might not be the best thing for YOUR business.
Learn from the Dumas' experiences as they talk about these topics as well as what it takes to work and live abundantly.

They say if you can make it New York, you can make it anywhere. In that same spirit, many people see having a job or a career on Wall Street as a way to launch themselves to success.
This is pretty understandable. Over the years, there have been some movies which illustrated a simple idea. That idea being you can start from meager beginnings and become wealthy beyond your wildest dreams if you make it on Wall Street.
I believe this is the case for this session's guest, Marc Davenport.
Having started his career off on Wall Street, he learned a ton. But he also started to develop a network of influential people. That network has helped him get to where he's at today.
In this chat, join Marc and I as we discuss what all he learned on Wall Street, why he started his first business after having that success, and some of the things we can all do to help ourselves in our own journey.

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!
