They created their businesses and products around what they were passionate about. Here are some golden nuggets of wisdom from their experiences. To listen to the entire podcast click on the links.

“I pulled myself out of a big mess. I dove in and learned how to be a true entrepreneur. Quitting was not  an option. Going back to work for someone else was not an option. Once I owned my mistakes I ran with the business and I never looked back.” by Henry Kaminski Jr.

“I always had to be the big fish in the pond and I never allowed anyone around me that was better than me because it made me feel insignificant. Feelings can get in the way.” by Henry Kaminski Jr.

“I hired a coach although I didn’t have the extra money to pay for him. But quitting was not an option for me. So I invested in myself. I improved my mindset and turned it around.” by Henry Kaminski Jr.

 

“Being a 100 % remote business allows me to find employees nationwide. We are more flexible with working hours and we allow our employees a chance to be a hero that makes our retention level higher. We look for people who are inspired by others, do not feel threatened by smarter people and like to do challenging things.” by Ryan Malone

“When you start a business you do not have a case study, you don’t have a huge customer base but you do have your integrity and your commitments. I would rather bite off less and make sure every person I worked with knew I was committed to them rather than biting off more and not giving them the service and attention they need because those happy clients will ultimately refer me to 5-6 new clients.” by Ryan Malone

“Start today. Have no fear. Find that kid in yourself again and do not worry what people think.” by Ryan Malone

 

“If you have an idea and want to create a business and if you think that there are not going to being problems then you are living in fantasy land.” by Lance Pitlick


“The biggest challenge we had growing our business was cash flow. We sold the majority of our yearly sales in the last 3 months of the calendar year. Our products were made in China, and when placing minimum orders of a quarter million dollars, we were required to put up 25% and then pay the remaining money when the product was shipped.” by Lance Pitlick


“Try and find something that you love to do and make it into a business. It will take time and it will take patience.” by Lance Pitlick

 

“My personal obstacle was my mindset around money. I have never really cared about money. The idea that I had to sell myself and realize that I was creating value and being helpful was a challenge for me.” by Jeff Sanders

“Be in the game. If you create a product, put it out there with the public and get their feedback. You must be willing to take the risk.” by Jeff Sanders

“My morning routine is a big part of my life. I exercise and then I focus on one significant activity before I have my breakfast. I do not look at my email until I have done these three things.” by Jeff Sanders

 

“I am super passionate about “Shooting your shot.” Many of us miss out on multiple opportunities because we are not shooting our shot to make a huge dent in this universe. We would rather hold the ball and let others score when we have an open shot to make incredible things happen for society.” by Morgan J. Ingram

“I was caught up into building my business quickly. I wanted it so badly. I needed to take a step back. I had to slow down and start building my story.” by Morgan J. Ingram

“Consistency is the key. When you are building your business you must do something every day. Accept the journey. Reach out to people who inspire you.” by Morgan J. Ingram

Welcome to Week 8 of The Daily Grind Business Podcast Weekly Summaries. Each week the interviewees impart their wisdom by sharing their experiences. Learn from them. To connect with them and to receive some free information please click on the links below.

There is a common thread with all successful entrepreneurs and that is the importance of investing in both your business and personal growth. So each week we also share with you titles of books that either these entrepreneurs have written or suggested that you read.

 

Week 8

1. Lin Dai and his co-founders pioneered the Hooch App, the first membership cocktail app where members pay $9.99 a month and receive One Drink Every Day. Winner of Anheuser-Busch/InBev’s SxSW Startup competition and finalist in Richard Branson’s Extreme Tech Challenge, Hooch is available at 500+ top bars and restaurants in 10 cities around the world.

 Previously as Chief Marketing Officer of Keek, a top video app for millennials, Lin grew Keek’s worldwide audiences to 75M, through partnerships with top brands including the World Cup, Formula One, Sundance, MTV VMAs, Emmys, iHeartRadio, Teen Choice Awards, Live Nation, the Kardashians and more. The company was successfully taken public on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

As VP of Digital Programming for Emmis NY, Lin led all digital and television initiatives for the iconic brand HOT97. Lin launched Loud Digital, a premium digital network reaching 61 million viewers, and produced Boost Mobile Summer Jam live streams, the largest live streaming Hip Hop events on the web, Pepsi’s award-winning web series Road to Summer Jam, in collaborations with Vevo and YouTube, and VH1’s comedy series This Is HOT97.

As SVP, Programming & Development for Alloy, Lin oversaw development of original and branded content, digital marketing strategy, and distribution for the Alloy Digital Network, as well as responsible for marketing, social media and digital development for Alloy’s entertainment properties, including Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars and more.

In 1999, he founded Kiwibox.com, the first social network and online magazine for teens, and successfully took the company public.

Lin graduated with honors from Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. He was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year award, followed by tenure as the youngest adjunct professor at CMU, developing its 1st set of credited courses on Web Publishing.


2. Multi-award winning entrepreneur, Gavin Bell really knows his onions when it comes to Facebook ads. Not only is he a leading Facebook advertising consultant, but he’s also a renowned vlogger with millions of views.

Gavin helps brands across the world to utilise Facebook in a way that not only builds their audience but turns that attention into revenue. His work has been featured on the likes of Virgin.com, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur on Fire, KissMetrics and Social Media Examiner.


3. Kenneth Brown is an expert in Digestive Health. His practice has a special focus on finding solutions to IBS-related symptoms – especially where pharmaceutical drugs have underperformed. He formed KBS Research in 2012 with the goal of creating innovative natural products for digestive issues. His first product, Atrantíl, launched in 2015 and has been clinically proven to relieve frustrating IBS symptoms like bloating and abdominal discomfort.


4. Shea Kewin is the Founder and CEO of UHWK. He played in the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), before taking on a scholarship to The University Of Dalhousie. Shea is an avid inventor, Toronto Maple Leafs fan and prides himself on owning the patent to integrated inflatable bowl


5. Simardev “Sim” Gulati is an entrepreneur in fashion and sustainable technologies. As the Co-founder and CEO of Dropel Fabrics, he’s leading a technology revolution in natural fabrics with Dropel-branded, performance-based natural cotton fibers. Through materials science and nanotechnology they’re creating life proof clothing–preventing spills, stains, odor and other technologies. His work has been featured in Time magazine, The New York Times, Forbes, WWD, Mashable, Bustle and others.


These entrepreneurs created successful businesses based on finding solutions that consumers are willing to pay for. They found a gap in the marketplace and they were determined and persistent to make it work. They tested their ideas and they were not afraid.

“The eco-system is much better than it has ever been. There is a generation of entrepreneurs who do not want a cushy job. They don’t want to work for a major corporation. They want to make something exciting. The new generation of entrepreneurs is all about having an idea that can change the world. It is an exciting time to be in business.” by Lin Dai

“I learned after the 2008 market crash about spending the time to select the right partners, taking the right deals, and having the right investors.” by Lin Dai

“People are the most important thing in your business. Look after your employees and work with integrity.” by Lin Dai

 

“The guys I like to work with and where we have had the best results are football teams, YouTubers - people that have large brands or large audiences already. I then build the infrastructure on Facebook and turn their audience into a revenue stream.” by Gavin Bell

“If you want to place a successful campaign on Facebook the first step is to know what the mindset is when someone is using Facebook, and that mindset is people speaking to friends and family who do not care who you are and what you are trying to sell them. They have to get to know you so a good idea is to give away a good piece of content. Whoever likes that content then retarget those people watching or listening to your free content and then give them something for free. And then retarget those people. Now you have built a relationship with those people over time.” by Gavin Bell

“Entrepreneurs who understand people or their customers the best are the ones that are going to win.” by Gavin Bell

 

“If you are an entrepreneur or yet to be because you are still unsure about leaving your job, it is a very stressful time for you and I see so many people like this who have an unhealthy digestive system. Bacteria likes starch and sugar so watch the amount that you eat and back off eating fermented foods for a while.” by Dr. Kenneth Brown

”When bacterium starts to break down the food you eat, it produces methane which can create abdominal discomfort and an uncomfortable bloated feeling. Atrantíl’s three natural ingredients work together to help weaken and remove unwanted bacteria from your gut and return it to its normal, calm environment. Go to lovemytummy.com to learn more.” by Dr. Kenneth Brown

“I stepped back and looked at what I didn’t know. I met with CEO’s before I started my business. I hired a CEO. I went to people I trusted. This is how I built my team.” by Dr. Kenneth Brown

 

“I had an idea and I created a product. I googled “action camera” to see what was on the market. I wanted to take a product and tweak it to accommodate my hockey game. I found a similar product on‑ line from China and I ordered it. I adjusted the product and taped it to my helmet. I then pitched my idea with its design on a piece of paper to the University of New Brunswick and from there I got a lot of presales and it has grown organically since.” by Shea Kewin

“I look in the mirror every day and realize it is just me. It’s me having the ability to mould and create the life the way I want.” by Shea Kewin

“There will be a ton of challenges when starting out but it is the journey that is the most rewarding thing. It is rebounding from those obstacles that will energize you to keep going and to keep believing in yourself.” by Shea Kewin

 

“As an entrepreneur one of the most important pieces you need is to be curious about what is happening in the world and try to make sense of it in your own way. This is what I was trying to do. I wanted to understand why this was happening. I was interested in consumer behaviour and the industry’s behaviour. My business started with me being curious.” by Sim Gulati

“I discovered a gap in the industry. For years they – the clothing industry - were working with performance fabrics but no one was innovating with natural fabrics. I saw a hole in the market so I started working with material scientists and chemical engineers to see if they could take the functional properties of polyester and bring it into natural fabrics.” by Sim Gulati

“My biggest obstacle so far was fundraising. It is a painful process and it can be so time consuming. Investors want to invest in someone who is a hustler. They want to know that you are in it for the long term. It is a process and you need to hit your milestones. Investors do make it easy.” by Sim Gulati

Welcome to The Daily Grind Business Podcast Weekly Summaries. Each week the interviewees impart their wisdom by sharing their experiences. Learn from them. To connect with them and to receive some free information please click on the links below.

There is a common thread with all successful entrepreneurs and that is the importance of investing in both your business and personal growth. So each week we also share with you titles of books that either these entrepreneurs have written or suggested that you read.

The people who Colin interviews didn’t just make a million dollars. They persevered. A lot of them failed; but they got back up, dusted themselves off and got back in the race. They had an undying belief that what they were doing was the right thing and would eventually take off – it just needed time and more hard work. In the process, they reached out to mentors, read books, listened to podcasts and audiobooks and attended seminars. They got rid of their egos and they learned from people who were doing exactly what they wanted to do.

We are passionate about helping entrepreneurs get started in their businesses so this is why we have compiled weekly notes from our weekly podcasts. The entrepreneurs who so graciously offered their time to be interviewed are passionate about giving back and helping others as we do.

Week 7

 Isabel also teaches how to use our emotions and intuition as a powerful guide in business   and life.


3.  Nathan Hirsch Connects Business Owners with the Top 1% of Freelancers

Nathan Hirsch bootstrapped two companies to become multi-million dollar businesses and continues to run them today. He started the first, Portlight, in his college dorm room selling textbooks on Amazon.com in 2009. He and his biz partners expanded to other product categories and have sold over $20 mil on the marketplace. At its peak, they were managing over 500,000 products on their Amazon store from over 1,000 drop ship suppliers.

After much frustration hiring through Upwork and other platforms, they started their own online hiring marketplace, specialized for eCommerce biz owners, in the fall 2015. FreeeUp.com now services over 2,000 online businesses and is on pace to hit $5+ million this year. Nathan serves as the CEO handling client acquisition, software management, and internal team growth.

These entrepreneurs have a common thread – a passion for what they are doing. They have challenges but they have found the tools to help them through their fears and self-doubt.

We would like to share with you the golden nuggets that we gleaned from these interviews.

 

“We developed a micro-learning platform to help young professionals – millennials – succeed in the workplace by helping them build their professional skills. It consists of 21 modules with 10-15 minutes of content centered around specific training topics such as how to overcome entitlement, how to develop a strong work ethic, proven ways to overcome device distraction, and more.” by Steven Van Cohen
“We lost our biggest client when we couldn’t afford it. We did not see that coming. We lost $1 ½ million in revenue in one day. So we developed a strategy to offer different things to our other clients.  It was a nightmare.” by Steven Van Cohen
“Be as diversified as you can.” by Steven Van Cohen

 

“About 1 out of 5 people are called empath. Being an empath is what you are born with. We feel people’s emotions. We see the world differently. When you carry the burden of the world it shows up physically on your body.” by Isabel Hundt
“I had a lot of self-doubt. I kept hearing some other calling. The more I learned to listen from within the answers came to me.” by Isabel Hundt
“The world around you is a reflection of your inner world. Trust yourself and in your abilities. Trust your intuition.” by Isabel Hundt

 

“If you have an online business that is growing we have a roster of remote online freelancers for projects such as customer service, marketing and web development. We give you access to the top 1% of online freelancers that we have interviewed and screened. Not only that we bill you only for the monthly hours on the project.” by Nathan Hirsch
“It is not a good thing to do everything because there are people out there who can do some things better than I can. When I took certain things off my plate like bookkeeping, social media, and customer service it enabled me to grow my business.” by Nathan Hirsch
“I surround myself with really good people who bring good and new ideas to the table.” by Nathan Hirsch

 

“Time is your most valuable resource especially when you are starting your new business. We will work with you to manage your projects, plan events and conferences, create systems and processes and help you manage your inbox and calendar.” by Maddy Niebauer
“My virtual company allows me to work anywhere. I have been on the road for the past 8 months in Central and South America.” by Maddy Niebauer
“Learn from your failures, but don’t berate yourself. Leverage what you are good at. You don’t have to be perfect at everything.” by Maddy Niebauer

 

“Having a vision story is the number one priority for any small business owner. Adding implementation to that vision is rocket fuel” by Scott Beebe
“I hired a coach, Aaron Walker to begin my journey.” by Scott Beebe
“My biggest foe is fear. It’s as real as the table in front of me. Fear comes to me in facial contortion, emotion and silent voices that nobody can hear. This is not a cleared hurdle yet. To hear his struggles Go to punchfearinthemouth.com

The Daily Grind Business Podcast interviews successful business owners and people in hopes to inspire the next great entrepreneur.

Welcome to The Daily Grind Business Podcast Weekly Summaries. Each week the interviewees impart their wisdom by sharing their experiences. Learn from them. To connect with them and to receive some free information please click on the links below.

There is a common thread with all successful entrepreneurs and that is the importance of investing in both your business and personal growth. So each week we also share with you titles of books that either these entrepreneurs have written or suggested that you read.

Its host, Colin Morgan, interviews entrepreneurs 5 days a week and in those interviews, he tries to find out what made them successful entrepreneurs. He asks the following questions:

1.  How they got started. What was their first entrepreneurial experience and what led them to becoming an entrepreneur.

2.  What were the obstacles they had to overcome to get where they are today and what lessons they had to learn along the way?

3.  Who had the biggest impact on them?

4.  What were their daily behaviors when setting up their business?

5.  What motivates them to keep grinding?

6.  If you could ask their “younger self” one piece of advice what would that be?

The people who Colin interviews didn’t just make a million dollars. They persevered. A lot of them failed; but they got back up, dusted themselves off and got back in the race. They had an undying belief that what they were doing was the right thing and would eventually take off – it just needed time and more hard work. In the process, they reached out to mentors, read books, listened to podcasts and audiobooks and attended seminars. They got rid of their egos and they learned from people who were doing exactly what they wanted to do.

We are passionate about helping entrepreneurs get started in their businesses so this is why we have compiled weekly notes from our weekly podcasts. The entrepreneurs who so graciously offered their time to be interviewed are passionate about giving back and helping others as we do.

3. Calvin Wayman is a regular guy turned author, entrepreneur, and a Millionaire Case Study—where he’s documenting the first story on YouTube – his own - from earning zero dollars to earning one millionaire dollars “as its happening!”

In 2015, he was at a dead end. He found himself anxious, depressed, overweight, and in a mountain of debt. Feeling completely unfulfilled, he realized something had to change. He created a new vision for his life, and even with the responsibilities of a wife and a one-year-old, he suddenly quit his day job and decided to go after the life he envisioned.

Since then, what he’s accomplished in such a short time has been nothing short of incredible. But it hasn’t been without heartache and pain. He’s known for not hiding the struggle we all go through as human beings, but sharing it openly—inspiring others that they are actually more capable than they can imagine.


4. Kurek Ashley is an internationally renowned speaker, author and coach in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth, and is recognised as a premier expert in personal and professional development, self-discovery and peak performance.

5. Ricardo Arellano is a 25-year-old entrepreneur. He teaches people from around the world how to make money from their phone. He is from Salt Lake City, Utah. Ricky had a great life growing up with hard-working immigrant parents there to support him. Ricky was really coasting through life until the economy crashed in 2008 and everything changed. Financial issues started building up in his household, cars were getting repossessed, and he had a fear of losing his house, etc. Ricky went to college to be able to help his family but, hated it. But that is where he started his entrepreneurial journey through network marketing. He was introduced to the idea of being his own boss, setting his own hours and writing his own checks and has fallen in love with the idea ever since.


These entrepreneurs had a common thread – a thirst for knowledge. They read books, listened to podcasts, attended seminars and most importantly hired mentors that were the best in their industry and worked under their guidance.

 

“It is as important as you get older to reflect on what you value, and what matters the most to you. When I was in the corporate world I realize how much I was sacrificing my mental health, my relationships with my family and my marriage, my overall well-being. I had no inner peace when I was a corporate employee. I had highs and lows.” by Farnoosh Brock
“I decided to make some big changes in my life after I had a couple of wake-up calls. My father was ill and I suffered from some health issues so I knew then I had to get my act together. I had to figure out what I can do so I could build a business around my lifestyle instead of the other way around.” by Farnoosh Brock
“Have a coach – you have to walk your talk. Invest in yourself and continually learn.” by Farnoosh Brock

 

Leaving my full-time job was scary. Do I take the promotion or do I follow with my dream. I prepared myself by taking courses. I tested the market with proposals with potential clients. Only when I got back positive feedback is when I left my secure job.” by Hanna Fitz
“Businesses struggle. They create something and just put it out there with a Website – thinking that their Website is their brand. A brand connects subconsciously that resonates a clear message about what you are about. It is about being different from everybody else.” by Hanna Fitz
“A brand is your story. Ask yourself – what is my purpose and my mission that is driving this brand and how does it create value in the marketplace?” by Hanna Fitz

 

“Successful people do not worry if they made the right decision or not. Instead they just make the decision and they make it right. Once you make that decision you do not need to look back. The decision gets you moving and it is up to you what you do after the decision is made. Act as though this was the right decision.” by Calvin Wayman
“I went to college for entrepreneurship and I wanted to start a business but I didn’t. I had a job after and I had nothing to show for it. I journaled my frustrations. Year after year passed and I was still not working for me. I projected myself in the future in 10 years – what if I am in the same place and what if this desire I have now just dies over this period. Fear got me going.” by Calvin Wayman
“In making that decision, I initially read a lot. I read 50 books the first year and 50 books the second year. I then started listening to audiobooks.” by Calvin Wayman

 

“I have had many businesses that failed including – Fan Hands - it was a product based business. My enthusiasm and passion had driven this business. In fact, I had a home shopping network on board and a Toni Robbins infomercial before I made a prototype. I found out after I made the prototype that it didn’t work.” by Kurek Ashley
“Personal development is the best investment you will ever make in your life. When I was homeless living in my car in Los Angeles I realized I had to develop myself to get out of it.” by Kurek Ashley
“The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your communication. Thinking is a way of communicating with you. I get up. I read my goals every day. I say my daily affirmations. I do some meditation. I so some exercise. Priority one for me is exercising my 4 main muscle groups – my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.” by Kurek Ashley

 

“I was broke as a joke and I was completely unhappy. Network marketing absolutely changed my life.”   by Ricardo Arellano
“You’ve got to get your mindset right. We are talking about a multi-trillion dollar a day market. You need to commit one year of consistent study, practice and back testing.” by Ricardo Arellano
“When I was down I learned how to create my Why. I became brutally honest with myself. Once I became honest about myself this is when great things happened again. Les Brown ignited that fire within me. You don’t need to re-invent the wheel.” by Ricardo Arellano

For all the people who may run into obstacles whether in your personal life and/or in your business life here are some valuable words of wisdom from these entrepreneurs.

“The word failure should be eliminated from your vocabulary. You are either succeeding or you are learning. For those that are straddling the fence by having one leg in entrepreneurship and the other leg in working a job for what you perceive as safety, then you will be living a life of mediocrity. You will not get to live at the level where you want to go. Do not worry about what other people think because if you do, it will hold you captive.” by Aaron Walker
“The enemy to your success is isolation. The number one key to the success in your business is building relationships.” by Aaron Walker

“The antidote to this barrier of self-doubt was developing a strategy. For all people who want the freedom of owning a business you need to be courageous, you need to have a vision and you need to start building your network.” by Sabina Hitchen
“Avoid partnerships with friends. If you do go into business have an exit strategy and define on paper each partner’s roles in the new company.” by Sabina Hitchen

“I believe our habits determine everything in our lives.” by David Henzel
“Applying business principles to our family life made me a better father, spouse and business leader.” by David Henzel

“Storytelling is the key in messaging your brand.” by Tamara Thompson
“I learned to get back up. I was fighting alcoholism for most of my 20’s. My attitudes changed watching videos. I hired my first business coach and then joined a mastermind class.” by Tamara Thompson

“Maybe you are a business advisor, a health and fitness coach, or a foreign language instructor. Whatever your niche is, you have a special skill set, a specific information base, and you’re eager to share your knowledge with the universe. We handle the details of installing, styling, and deploying your online course platform to your WordPress site.” by Chris Badget
“When I transitioned from freelancer, in the outdoor leadership eco-tourism industry, into the online world I didn’t make money at all. It took more than 1 year. I needed the time to learn and to create value.” by Chris Badget

These entrepreneurs experienced a few failures before their ultimate success in business. Most of them have not had the support but they persevered and are now successful today. Others had to take a step back and completely re-evaluate where there business was heading. One entrepreneur in particular took the little seed money he had left and started a new business.

“You must find your niche market.” “I worked with a 27 year old customer who was a fitness trainer that was making $25,000. He wanted to increase his income. Together, we found his niche market and this client is now marketing his services to people who are missing limbs. As a result, his sales increased to $560,000 per year. He also started VIP programs to grow his income. His message was powerful “You can be just as good as any enabled bodied person”. The combination of a specific niche market and a strong message were the keys to his success. by Nicky Billou
“Think like a winner. If you have any doubts about yourself it will kill you.” by Nicky Billou

“Understand the time involved in what you are offering. For example, if you offering a client-service business on an hourly basis, you must realize how many hours go into that one hour. Understand the value in what you offer your client. So, be confident in what you charge and in what you are delivering. Practice in the mirror what you do and what you charge.” by Rima the Jungle Entrepreneur
“Implement positive self-talk - It gives you confidence.” by Rima the Jungle Entrepreneur

“In 2018 you need to learn sales techniques. This will give you the freedom to live your life purpose. The first step is to approach your sales in how your product and service can make your customers lives better. There is no such thing as a quick dollar. You must put your customers first.” by Stan Way
“When you start your business you are probably not going to make the money you want within the first couple of years. The support that you thought you had will say “Why don’t you get a real job”. You must find ways to get past these barriers. The book The Success Principles, by Jack Canfield, changed my mindset. It taught me how to stay away from people who don’t support me. by Stan Way

“The first question you must answer before thinking about starting a business is “what makes you different from your competitors”. Then focus on your ideal customer. Find out what they want and then figure out how to service them”. by Jamie Irvine
“Surround yourself with people who are good in their business. Work under their tutelage before going out on your own.” by Jamie Irvine

“A successful brand has 2 critical characteristics: It is able to magnetically attract your ideal customer and it allows your business to command a premium price and still win over your customers.” by Pia Silva
“Do not copy other people’s businesses. Make your own.” by Pia Silva

“No matter where you are in any type of life whether its business or whether it’s working for yourself, you can count on having some tough days and in being in some tough situations – you just have to keep going. Once you quit that is when you lose.” by Christopher Wirth
“It was tough in the beginning. I didn’t have a blueprint to follow but I just kept going. I believed in myself and in what I was doing.” by Christopher Wirth

“You need something bigger than money to keep you going.” by Christian Arriola
“You quit your 40 hours a week job to work 100 hours a week but I am now doing what I want.” by Christian Arriola

“I had a very clear vision about what I wanted and where this buisness would be in 10 years before I even started it. By establishing a clear vision and a strategic plan I had the ability to process everything that I did , every person I met, every opportunity that came across my desk and, every obstacle that I was faced with allowed me to fit it into that vision.” by Derek Champagne
“I went “all in” when I started this buisness and was 100% committed to this buisness concept and doing all the necessary work that needed to be done. I rented a little office and always started my day wearing a suit. I believed that wearing a suit showed myself how committed I was to the business I was opening.” by Derek Champagne

“Read and practice direct response copywriting. It is so powerful. It will enable you to grow your online business.” by Arne Giske
“Marketing is the oxygen for your business. It can make or break you business.” by Arne Giske

“I invest 5% of my income back into my personal growth. When you invest in something, it changes your mindset.” by Dan Miller
“You need to be self-aware as to who you are, what you are good at and what you really want to do before deciding on what to do next.” by Dan Miller

We would like to share with you the golden nuggets that we gleaned from these interviews.

“We are the average of the 5 people who we spend the most time with.” by John Lee Dumas. In other words, if you want to grow as a person or be successful at something then you must surround yourself with people who are successful and happy.”
“There are going to be some tough times so work on your inner game because you never know what is going to come next” by John Dumas. To build your inner self, meditate, exercise and continue to educate yourself by reading to improve your life.

 

“A Business Plan is your roadmap to success. If you are going on a holiday, you have to know where you are going, how long you are going for, who is going with you and what you going to bring. This is exactly the same thing as a Business Plan. It lays out for the person, who wants to start a business, exactly where they are headed and how they are going to get there.” by Paul Morgan.
“A lot of people go into business because they think they have a great idea and that is not good enough. You need to take that idea and develop it into a viable and sustainable concept.” by Paul Morgan

 

“If you want to make a great living you must learn how to be valuable to the marketplace.” “Be really good at what you do.” by Kyle Wilson.
“Be willing to pour it on for the first 2-3 or 5 years in your new business. Work hard in the beginning and it will pay off.” by Kyle Wilson.

 

“I learned some valuable lessons. When the 2008 crash market happened, I lost mostly everything. My business imploded. If I didn’t have that focus or that mindset that knew what I wanted then I may not have recovered from those losses.” by Rod Khleif.
“Success is empty without fulfillment”. “You may not be able to give back financially but you can always give whatever you can – for example you could smile at somebody, or buy somebody a cup of coffee or  by adding extra value to what you offer.” by Rod Khleif

 

“Hang out with people who are better than you. By doing this I increased my sales.” by Travis Chappell.
“I cannot tell you how important it is to find a mentor.” by Travis Chappell.
