The F Word (Your Business is F***** Without It)

Feb 13, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

By the F word, I mean fun.

FUN is a business tool.

Is this you?

When I signed up for my MLM business, I had zero business knowledge and overwhelming excitement & energy!

Somewhere along the way, I lost sight of my excitement. I started going through the motions like I was in a tailspin. Even though I knew what to do, there was a cloud over my head. I forced everything like it was a chore. Then I found myself burnt out and unfulfilled. I just felt stuck.

100% of my focus was on business, and I still dropped in rank and income. The passion, energy, and excitement were gone.

I faked a smile for weeks at a time without realizing that it was obvious (hint: People’s bullshit meter is super high).

I was stuck because I wasn't having fun.

Ever felt this way? Like you'll be happy when you finally get to an outcome. Let me save you some time: No you won't.

Joy is a prerequisite to success!

(By success, I don’t just mean in financial terms. I mean...

Stop Comparing Yourself To Others!

Feb 06, 2019

Ever compare yourself to others?

Do you feel jealous of their accomplishments (even though you wish you could be proud of them)?

Insert your inner critic that says, “I could never do that.”

I compared for years. 

The hardest part of failing for so long we’re the people that seemed to pick it up right away. It seemed easy for them.

I was building my business with the pedal to the metal for years... 

(and when I say pedal to the metal, I don’t mean I was actually working my business. It was just all I thought about. Then I got burnt out. If that's you, check out my blog post, “Burnout Prevention. 4 Ways To Stay Passionate When You Keep Failing.”) SUPER helpful. 

... anyways. 

I was slamming down on the gas trying to go as fast as possible, but NOTHING worked. I was death gripping the steering wheel, slamming down on the gas, tires screeching, smoke everywhere, but I went nowhere. 

I was...

3 Tips To Overcome Imposter Syndrome

Jan 30, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

Who the hell are you to help people?

  • You’re not a fitness expert.
  • You don’t have a ton of business success.

What gives you the right to inspire people to join your business if you don’t already have a successful business?!

Chances are, you’ve asked yourself something like that before. 

For some reason, you don’t feel like you’re enough. You feel like an imposter.

Since you haven't created the dream yourself, you don’t feel worthy of helping others create their vision, right?

You’re building up your network marketing business and you see all the top earners in your company walking across the stage, building their dream homes in cash, and earning millions of dollars. So when it comes time to share your story, you’re going, “Fuck I’ve can’t even make $100 a week. How the heck can I help someone else?”

You want to believe that you can help people. But that devil on your...

Why Too Much Personal Development Will Make You Miserable

Jan 23, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

Ever felt extremely overwhelmed from all the personal growth you have to do?

Maybe you have training opportunities with your company, events, courses, books, and then on top of that, you have a family and all these competing priorities!

After all, you hear quotes like:

"Your income always follow your level of personal growth." 

or

"If you want to earn more, learn more."

So you keep getting it pounded into your head that you have to keep on learning.

And while it's true that the learning NEVER stops, so many people mistake this for something completely different.

You Suffer From P.D.P.

Personal Development Paralysis. 

Today we’re gonna focus on how you can break through it, so you don’t have to feel it!

A couple of things are going on here:

1.) Perfectionistic Tendencies

The Number One Reason You Feel So Damn Stuck!

Jan 16, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

There's only ONE reason you:

  • don’t take massive action.
  • have such a hard time making decisions.
  • downplay what you’re capable of.

You already know what it is. It’s fear.

Self-awareness is the first step to change. You need to understand and have clarity on what you’re being dominated by if you ever want to change.

Where does fear come from? Why do you feel it all the time?

Your brain doesn’t have any interest in making you happy. Its only job is to protect you. It’s a survival based mind.

Your biggest fears are our biggest waste of time. You need to change your perspective on it.

2,000,000 years ago, you were a caveman. And you haven’t evolved since then. You haven’t needed to. Back then, your priority was to eat, find shelter, and protect your family against wildlife and the elements of freezing cold. Those were your fears. You were focused 100% on SURVIVAL.

You were worried about the sabertooth tiger in the...

Using The Pain Of Your Past To Create Greatness

Jan 09, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

My childhood wasn’t enjoyable.

It was full of emotional challenges with people very close to me in my life. It involved:

  • walking on eggshells around certain people.
  • money as a symbol of pain.
  • a poor example of relationships.
  • almost 50,000 dollars being taken from me.
  • narcissistic family members.
  • love being used as a weapon against me.

I craved validation and acceptance because I never felt like I was enough. It wasn’t fun. It HURT.

For the longest time, I HATED my past. I was ANGRY.

I remember making myself a promise that I’d never be like that. I wouldn’t waste my life away. I'd create something amazing that provided us with an incredible life. So I started an online business helping people get healthy from home.

Only one problem: everything I tried didn’t work. I was SO stuck.

I'd need a mindset call to get motivated. Then I’d be hyped up for a couple days, and I’d message my sponsor and say, “I sent 200...

How To Set Goals (And Actually Achieve Them For Once)

Jan 02, 2019
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

How many years have you reflected on the past year and set your resolutions, only to find yourself 3 weeks later, out of motivation, feeling stuck, and wondering WHY this always happens to you!

Why I hated goal setting...

Because I'd never hit my goals

I’d either set a goal, look at it, and then think it was silly even to try OR I’d freeze in fear after I set the goal and not know why.

I got to a point where I was so sick of tired of never hitting my goals that I didn’t even set goals for myself because deep down, I didn’t believe that I could achieve them. So why the hell try?

And over the course of time and training my mindset to think differently, I realized why that was. I was setting goals from a fear-based, shitty state of mind.

How Mindset Makes Or Break Your Goals

When you’re in a shitty state, what happens? You set a shitty goal. And a shitty goal creates shitty action. And shitty action creates shitty results. And...

The Only Thing That Will Make Or Break Your 2019 Goals!

Dec 19, 2018
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

Persistence. That's it. But it's different than you think.

I went through a period where I wanted "success" so bad. I wanted the money, time, freedom and every single time I tried, it felt like nothing was working and I didn't understand why. I was doing everything that I was supposed to be doing. I was just stuck.

When's the last time you've actually set a huge goal?

Not a realistic goal. A BIG, SCARY goal?

Fun fact: If you set a bigger goal, you play life on a higher level and will achieve WAY more than if you were to establish a small, realistic target (even if you fail).

  • Most people will think you're crazy.
  • Most people won't believe you can do this.

Most of the world doesn't have what they want. They don't have your big goal. SO DON'T LISTEN TO THEM.

Most of the world isn't happy, isn't fulfilled, and is just getting by! They're living status quo lives. Why seek validation from that group of people?

Look at where most of the world is going and...

2 Laws That'll Drastically Increase Your Income

Dec 12, 2018
 
(Podcast at the bottom)

Today won't be the traditional way that you think. Little story:

For 5 years, I was creating an online network marketing business. That was my vehicle/ my ticket for living a "life by design" (Btw, you don’t need to want to start a business for this podcast to apply to you).

I'd go and try to recruit people to it so I could help them, and so I could create freedom in my life. But the harder and harder I tried, it seemed like it kept getting harder and harder to do. It felt like people started resenting me.

I was held back by something, and I couldn’t figure out what. And to be honest, there were LOTS of things getting in the way that I didn’t realize.

I didn’t understand that my income WAS NOT proportionate to the level of effort I put in.

I’d do my invitations, share on social media, use my product, etc. But something was still off. My income wasn’t growing.

I got so fucking pissed off because I had these big dreams and...
