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.
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.

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.

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.
